As this weekend's anti-violence protest came and went without much of a whimper, I couldn't help but be shocked by some of the talking points and reports coming out of the event.

Among the many "demands" I saw listed: More Economic Development.

"Wait", I thought to myself, "more economic development???"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the same South Side communities currently fighting against the Obama center, correct? These are the same South Side communities who protested the opening of the new Mariano's, correct? These are the same South Side communities that -- anytime anyone comes along and proposes new development -- they launch into a tirade about "gentrification", "getting pushed out", etc, etc, right?

I don't get ... are they trying to be "ironic" with these demands given most of the pushback for new development(s) comes from within these communities themselves?
