Chicago Peach march successfully shutdown expressway

The Dan Ryan Expressway was shutdown this morning by thousands of people who participated in a peace march organized by the Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina Church in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

"Now the youth want meeting with the governor, the mayor, and all candidates running for those two offices to hear the plans to equal the unequal playing fields of the south and west sides of Chicago. Today we got their attention, now we want action."

    LennyMaz, unfortunately certain people have zero understanding or empathy for "those other people" until THEY become looked at as "those other people".
    Take for instance the current "opioid crisis". When drugs were an issue with "those other people", all you heard was, "Lock them all up and throw away the key!"
    Then once THEY themselves became "those other people" the entire narrative shifted to "showing compassion and understanding" , "providing quality treatment and resources", "keeping families together at ALL costs", "decriminalization" , "becoming lucrative owners of dispensaries" etc.
    When will ALL people learn?
