"The second city" is second to no one in murders.

"I keep hearing about people dying and the violence that's going on. I feel like it's my responsibility, and our responsibility, to the city," ~Common~


Good for Common, but he is a rapper, not a policy maker in the city of Chicago.


It is not his job to try and stop the violence that's plaguing that city. Twenty five to thirty shootings in a weekend is typical. This past weekend forty (yes forty) people were shot (including an 11 year old girl)and there seems to be no end in sight. The place makes Killadelphia look like Mayberry R.F.D. for crying out loud!


I appreciate that Common is going to drop an album that speaks to the problem, but again, where are the leaders of that city?


Rahm Emanuel and his minions should be making cutting down on gun violence in their city the number one priority, and they should be focusing on it like a laser. Nothing should take priority over this scourge that is engulfing a once proud city.


Emanuel claims that he is working on the problem, and that they have done all the usual things: Assign more police officers in the summer months, create more alternative programs for young people to get involved with, and asking community and church leaders to get involved. Good luck with all of that.


These kids still won't have jobs, most of them will still be coming from broken and dysfunctional homes, and they will still think that being strapped is the best status symbol that they can have.


The more I think about it, maybe Common is better suited to try and fix the problem than the same old same old from the usual suspects.


I see that Eric Holder and the Justice Department is getting involved. (Sorry Rahm, what you are doing isn't working.)

“The Department of Justice will continue to do everything in its power to help the city of Chicago combat gun violence,” Holder said in a statement announcing the deployment of the agents. “These new agents are a sign of the federal government’s ongoing commitment to helping local leaders ensure Chicago’s streets are safe.”
“These new agents are a sign of the federal government’s ongoing commitment to helping local leaders ensure Chicago’s streets are safe.”
Attorney General Eric Holder Despite an overall dip in crime from last year, bloodshed in many of the city’s poorest neighborhoods continues to be relentless. While murders are down 6% from last year, shootings are up 5%, concentrated in just a handful of communities mostly on the city’s west and south sides, according to police.  Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has said that getting control of shooting incidents is critical to the department’s efforts. McCarthy told msnbc earlier this year that a new surge of officers in the most gun-weary neighborhoods and bolstered intelligence and community relations were showing signs of success in the department’s efforts to slow the bloodletting." [Source]

Mr. McCarthy, forty people shot does not seem like such a great "success" to me.

"Lyrics are like liquor for the fallen soldiers
From the bounce to the ounce, its all our culture
Everyday we hustling, tryna get them custom rims
Law we ain't trusting them, thick broads we lust in them
Sick and tired of bunchin it, I look on the bus at them
When I see them struggling, I think how I'm touching them
The People"

Common, I sure hope that you can "touch them, because right now, no one else is even coming close.

isn't "Black" BO out of chicago?

MO, too...

you'd think they would've noticed...

but since most folk don't Understand what they are seeing, it stands to reason the killing season would be a big surprise. rather than Understood it is by design.

glad to see you stop feigning ignorance FN. now if PX would stop pretending these are all unworthy to live gang members, that would be a solid success.

if we don't care about our own, we sound mad expecting our historical enemies to give a flying flip.

@QLB- what now?

what else you got?

Honestly, Field, no it doesn't.

Does Chicago have a serious crime problem? Yes, it does. But it doesn't have a significantly more serious problem than a whole lot of other major American cities. I'm a bit annoyed how this narrative of "Chiraq" has taken hold. People are going off of the fact that Chicago has the highest absolute homicide numbers (and also the fact that it's Obama's home city, which means both Democrats and Republicans are highlighting it, for different reasons).

But absolute numbers are pretty meaningless for this purpose. The biggest cities are always likely to have worse absolute crime numbers ... simply because they're big! All this means is that the other huge cities, New York and L.A., have managed to reduce their numbers faster than Chicago. (And it's pretty easy to see how NYC has achieved this -- they kicked all the poor people out.)

To accurately assess how safe or unsafe a city is, you have to look at per capita homicide statistics. If you do this, Chicago isn't close to the head of the pack. The following cities all have worse (in some cases WAY worse) per capita homicide rates than Chicago:

Detroit, New Orleans, St. Louis, Baltimore, Newark, Oakland, Stockton, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Memphis, Atlanta

Again, I'm not excusing Chicago's crime problem. But I'm just a little annoyed at the inaccuracy of its being described as having a uniquely bad big-city crime problem. That's not actually true.

Bill said...


Federal governemt getting involved in Chiraq?

That's not going to end well.


If only there was an education program to teach killers to read the "gun free zone" signs.


Something about those "Gun Free Zone" signs that attract criminals.





Anonymous said...

Just for reference, Detroit and New Orleans had three times the number of homicides per 100,000 residents as Chicago.

This is not a close contest.

PilotX said...

What do you mean all unworthy to live gang members? The victims? Of course there are innocent people shot but let's all stop pretending Chicago suddenly caught the flu. When hasn't the Chi not been a tough place to live. Let's do an experiment, let's look at the murder rate in 1992, back when I was young and had hair and was actually out there running the streets to the present day. You might see interesting stats. Also as far as murder rates compare cities you never hear anything about such as San Antonio or Omaha and see what we get. Sure the raw numbers look bad but take them in context of a city of 3 million. Most of us are hardworking decent people who live in a still proud city. Don't believe me? Come on up for a bit and look me up, I'll show you around and guarantee you have a good time and a different perspective of the Chi.

It ain't the "city that works" anymore. Sad. Because if any city in the US has figured out community relations, it's Chicago.

It is very difficult for the police to help a community that is unified against them. Nothing will change until the black community decides to work with the police to lock these thugs up.

In the long run, the government needs to stop subsidizing and promoting bastardry.

Anonymous said...

The problem is that the homicide rate is concentrated among the poorest ( read this as Black ) neighborhoods you stupid morons. Field actually gets this. Chicago is only a third Black. Comparing Chicago to New Orleans which is largely a majority Black city is not really an accurate analogy. An 11 year old innocent child was killed by a stray bullet. I'd really suggest you figure the problem out. BTW it's not the NRA or YT. In my neck of the woods so to speak everyone is armed and non one gets shot. Why is that?

QLB

PilotX said...

I'm glad you mentioned guns but I don't know if we'll ever get a handle on that problem as a nation because the more fear we instill in our populace the more guns are sold I.e. The knockout game. Too much money from the gun lobby. If 40 white kids had been shot I don't think it would have made much of a substantial difference. We couldn't even pass background checks after Sandy Hook and that is popular. If you can't get legislation when little white kids are shot you just aint getting it.

PilotX said...

But Q, there are many Black neighborhoods that are as crimefree as yours and many residents have guns so it aint just color, though you seem to be implying that.
BTW, when did you answer my questions?

focusedpurpose said...

@Pilot X-

i can appreciate your perspective.

it wounds my soul to see our people being taken out. while folk shrug + talk about how much worse it is elsewhere. like those are not Real folk with a valuable human life. like they changed the channel or something. commercial break. wt...

some of those firing on folk= the police. it is not all gang related. the snipers that shot the lady trying to protect her children from a year or so back is seared in my mentals. those were not "gang members" which is all folk need to care to not care.

the powers that be can take us out in plain sight and even we will shrug and act like "those people" had it coming...

it is open season on the Blessed Black nation-world wide.

if i told folk it was all written, would you believe me?

probably not. would in all likelihood name call like that will change a thing...

where are folk getting all these guns? while the agenda to disarm all is being pushed. dig deep enough and i assure you there are gov't lies + gov't ties.

they flood our communities with the tools to commit madness/mayhem. this fact in NO way excuses our willingness to participate in our own destruction. we MUST wise up.

why did the "back when i had hair" quip crack me up? lol! i am sure the Mrs. has no complaints. the Blessed Black sons of the nation look quite marvelous rocking the bald shiny Blessed Black style:)

Blessings to you.

@Whitey's Conspiracy

Your comment would suggest that things have gotten worse in Chicago. Um, no. They simply haven't gotten better as fast as in New York and L.A.

Check out the following chart, and you'll see things used to be worse in Chicago -- way worse -- back in the 1970s-1990s.

http://sentencing.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451574769e2017ee6c2aae2970d-pi

People's perception is that crime is always getting worse, regardless of what the facts say. Are certain low-income black neighborhoods in Chicago hellish war zones. Why yes, they are. But here's a newsflash: They've been like that for a really long time now! This is not new!

I mean it's good that people care now that people are dying. I hope they will continue to care. But let's get the facts right first.

parvenu said...

Field I am growing just a little bit weary of pointing out a substantial part of the "gun violence" problem in the nation's major black urban neighborhoods. It is the same problem in Philly and Chicago black neighborhoods, and that culprit is RECYCLED GUNS. Politically the mayors and police continue to place the blame on the proliferation of guns in the black neighborhoods on "illegally trafficked guns from out of state"; while they continue to ignore RECYCLED GUNS getting into the hands of young black males. The definition of a RECYCLED GUN is a firearm that has been seized by the police and subsequently scheduled for destruction after its legal presence is no longer required. The re-emergence of such a firearm back on the street for sale is what classifies that firearm a RECYCLED GUN.
It is my belief that effective monitoring of the ACTUAL DESTRUCTION of these weapons in police custody will substantially reduce the number of guns available to young black men on the street, and thereby contribute to a serious reduction of the number of gun deaths of black youth in black neighborhoods.

Lets use some of your analytical skills. First of all many heavily armed locales ( like mine ) have very low homicide rates. Is it really the guns? Not here. Is a meth haven crime free? No, but it certainly doesn't carry the same homicide rate. Is poverty a factor? To be sure, however, other poor communities don't have the same number of murders. If you're going to discount race then what's left? Culture? Perhaps a culture shoved down your throats by the Democratic Party. Food for thought.

Of course, the CBC hasn't noticed neither has the NAACP, and most of all Jesse Jackson has said "nothing".

clearly based on the comments folk don't know that BO, Bush, Clinton and the rest are ALL related! went to the same school. HA! got the same family tree, G. these relations spill right on over into hollyweird and every place else when folk know to pay attention to the bloodlines + the $ trail..

From the dawn of the modern age, religious thinkers have warned that, strictly speaking, secular politics is impossible - that without the transcendent foundation of Judeo-Christian monotheism to limit the political sphere, ostensibly secular citizens would begin to invest political ideas and ideologies with transcendent, theological meaning.

Put somewhat differently: Human beings will be religious one way or another. Either they will be religious about religious things, or they will be religious about political things.

With traditional faith in rapid retreat over the past decade, liberals have begun to grow increasingly religious about their own liberalism, which they are treating as a comprehensive view of reality and the human good.

The Purple Cow said...

A century is when a batsman scores 100 runs in one innings of cricket. His team were playing a type of cricket in which you face a fixed number of pitches (in this case 240) and then your team innings closes.

In this case the team scored 212 with four out batsmen and my son batted the entire innings, scored 110 runs without getting out from 116 pitches faced. (You bat in pairs in cricket, so he faced just slightly less than half the team's pitches.)

So for a 14 year old to play an adult game and bat for 3 and a quarter hours without getting out once (and scoring lots of runs) is quite some feat of concentration.

Second: "Jobs for youth" in Chiraq is another canard. We all know that IF jobs were available (and some are), Negro gang-bangers would laugh themselves into a coma. Negro gang-bangers/terrorists DO NOT WANT TO WORK!!!, g'damit...
Finally: When will Negroes stop eating so much... Damn! Two out of three Negroes are borderline morbidly obese; the "cabbage-patch", "ankle-itis" looks are in vogue.

Well in my household there are 5 of us and NONE of us are even heavy set, far less morbidly obese. You stupid fucking asshat where do you get your info from? I bet you don't even know any blacks in real life so shut the fuck up.

PilotX - Why do you refer to blacks as blah people? I don't get the joke. I am a Black man, there's nothing blah about me, and I'm sure there's nothing blah about you, or any other black person here (except depressed negro) so why would you refer to us in such an unsavory manner?

"i don't agree with the way he breaks it down. but that's not my job. when you see that the homosexuals in the c/rap game are being used to take down the image of the Blessed Blacks - esp. the Black women. these jokers come up with a new nasty slur after getting their man love on + summoning shaytan. this is why homosexual Russell Simmons irks me so. all in the closet, peeking out long enough to lobby grenades at Black womanhood. Harriet Tubman sex tape. you dirty, hates womanhood, lispy homosexual devil. i wish i would silently act like i didn't know- fearing some name calling or label."

It seems like poor old FP just can't help herself.

It seems that any black man who does or says something FP doesn't like, she calls a homosexual.

So watch out fellows. Don't get on FP's bad side or, guess what, she'll call you a homo. Which, I suppose, is the worst possible thing you can call a straight black man.

I saw the Harriet Tubman "sex tape". The black woman comedienne who played Harriet Tubman was hilarious. Yes, I said it. She was laugh OUT LOUD funny!!!! Especially when she was in bed with the white massa and they took turns drilling each other with the strap-on. FP should have enjoyed that strap-on scene. After all, she used to make jokes about AB and strap-ons ALL THE TIME. Where's your sense of humor girlfriend (FP)? lol

Btw, I'm quite sure no one held a gun on the black woman comedienne and made her take that part.

You'll get loads of discussions about guns.... and lack of jobs...gentrification... etc etc...
No mention of the cartels subsidized drug running efforts to states that don't have Cannabis regulation in place....

The enemy is standing in the door. The finale solution is near. His plan is for YOU to invite him in. When he comes in, you will the one at wit's end. You will beg for him to be the eradicator of the vermin that control the hoods in every major city with a sizable Black population. He will have clean hands in this extermination.

This finale solution has not been initiated because the residents that are affected will have to be requesting the government to extinguish their own sons and daughters. Have you ever wondered why there was not concerned with the Black male being jailed at such a pace. The mothers did not question this practice because they were glad that their sons at least will be alive.

Role models are now the same age as the population needing them. Just the other day I read where some Jr. High kids obtained a contract (from Sony) for a million and a half dollars for playing rock music. Try telling another bunch of kids to study hard to be something other than sports or entertaining. Try telling Black mothers/fathers that see a pay-day to encourage their kids to a more obtainable future. Every day we read about LeBron and Chicago raised DRose salaries. I think it was so important in my generation that our models were usually much older so that the concept of time and experienced were established. Now one day you can be a HS student- the next day a multi-millionaire.(NBA enriched)

We focus on rates and percentages as if these events are in a vacuum. These are real people being killed. The citizens that are in these zones know the solutions. Without social powers, they are bystanders in the middle of the storm.

I think about the number of bullets that miss their intendant targets and have great sorrow for the people that have not a path to leave. each generation must carry the burden of the past. We as a people are always attacking our problems from the rear. By the time that we call for action it is well pass the point to bring back sanity to insane hoods.

As you see I have no input to bring a solution to this vexing situation. I write from a position of first hand knowledge. I was out in the streets during the times when "crack" was destroying Black men, children and especially women- working in DC General and unfortunately scrambling to obtain my drug of choice. It was akin to being back in the Nam albeit not being a part of the solution. I can relate to the position that being in these dysfunctional areas is misery.

Today with heavy heart I have to hear the president giving accolades to the warriors 6,ooo miles away ensuring peace for others and I ask myself what makes me so different that my safety can not be addressed and ensured? My gosh, we did go to the moon? StillaPanther2

PS... at least the young Black people have generated money by Hip- Hop. Not all is lost.

Is this civil rights movement envy or what?

What is Obama supposed to do about the massive dysfunction in cities like Chiraq and Detroit?

What can Obama do about the fact that so many young black men like to kill each other these days?
What can he do about the fact that the majority of black children are growing up without their father in the home?

Signing an executive order (or passing a law) is not going to solve these problems.

StillaPanther2, I am guessing we are around the same age with similar experiences from the sixties and Nam.

Your question is the same age old question that Blacks have asked for centuries. It is my contention that the sixties and seventies was about as good as it gets for Blacks. Today is far from that time. And, like you my heart is heavy as I see and feel the suffering and misery of the black race.

There is NO ONE to stop our disintegration but ourselves but quite frankly, I don't think we have the slightest idea or the 'will' and certainly not courage to stop our slide into utter chaos and darkness.

But to answer your question, the President, the CBC, the NAACP, and other Blacks capable of helping DON'T help because...well, because we are Black.

But that always has been that way, hasn't it?

He can get SERIOUS about America's insatiable desire for Cannabis, and other illicit drugs.....

First things First...
He could UP-end the entire global marketplace for Black Market Cannabis by rescheduling it..

One stroke of the pen...

That move in and of itself removes a large portion of the financial proceeds that the armed Gangs are fighting for...

Those proceeds would go directly to the Tax Payer...

Not drug gangs or cartels...


If you do NOTHING else at LEAST mitigate the amount of violence that stems from it.

60-75% of the profit comes from Cannabis....

That is a CENTRAL piece of the solution..

No the problem doesn't just go away with this move, but at least its a start...

Even if Full legalization isnt something he can get behind ..

Steps have to be implemented so that Chicago doesn't become the norm....

Its fairly obvious that Chi Town is a hub for nationwide drug distribution.

Meanwhile the weekend Chicago shit show has ended. Final score 5 dead and 42 wounded including a perfectly innocent 11 year old at a sleepover.
I'm just curious. How many of you Black folks have a firearm? What type is it? What kind of ammo do you use? Do any of you have a concealed carry license or any formal training?

Detroit - last republican mayor 1962

New Orleans - last republican mayor 1972

St Louis - last republican mayor 1949

Baltimore - last republican mayor 1967

Newark - no republican mayor 50 years


I see a pattern.


Considering the voters keep voting the same people back into office they must be happy with the way things are.

You got it Bill. If you look at the most depopulating cities in the US you're going to find two things in common and one of them is the presence of long term Democratic government. The other is a greater than 10% Black demographic. For the true cesspools like Gary and Camden this is striking.

Hey QLB... since you love citing numbers and stats...

you never did give me that STAT .....

You know the one that compares who uses more "Pot" Blacks or Whites...


How do you substantiate a minority group of 12% being 3.73 times more likely to be arrested for the same "Marijuana" .."Pot" offense...?

What is the Percentage of Black "Pot" Users to White "Pot" users...

Ill be fair and let you Google it first...

Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, South Carolina. What do these states have in common? They use more in taxes than they produce, they are last in education and health statistics and what else? Yep, all run by Republicans. Dumb, fat heavily armed states. Typical Republicans and they want more people to vote for them. OK, carry on.

Or we could just look in those states, examine the cities controlled by Democrats and just add up how many Blacks live there. That's where the real answer is.

Or we could see that these states are completely controlled by Republicans. So in essence Republicans do shitty jobs of running states.

QLB, do you have a college degree? What do you do for a living?

We can also look at one of the better run states with good educational outcomes and cities run by Dems. Massachusetts is run by a Democratic Black governor and alot of cities have Democratic mayors. Looks like that idea is shot to shit. Maybe Mississippi and other southern states need to elect a Black Dem as governor to get their shit correct. Facts is facts.

PilotX said..

They are the states with the highest percentage of blacks in the population, that's why they receive more back in taxes than they pay, it's for the care, feeding and breeding of negroes.

These states are Republican because the white people there have plenty of real world experience with negroes. The most liberal areas are the whitest areas, because blacks are an abstraction to liberal whites.

This lesson brought to you free of charge from the Real GOP.

ya'll were the ones outing BO first. and he still faking the funk just like the lispy queen.

sorry you missed the Russell Simmons memo.

it is pretty common knowledge in this neck of the woods. click on one of the videos i posted and let someone else tell ya as well. he won't say it so nicely, be warned with your sensitive fruity yet hates BW self.

the Black minstrel lady that took part in the video = NOT funny either. slave STAY for sale and i sure they gave her pennies for her dignity. i hope she chokes on whatever bread it bought her. that souled out heifer had no name recognition otherwise i would light her up as well. the lispy closeted, devil worshiping homosexual...yep. he can get it. here. on twitter. where ever. what you think about it = your little tired business. with your old, poor, flaming self. and i mean poor, like poor in Spirit. the worst kind of poverty. be clear. + you know homos like 'em young so you are no doubt ancient by the homo standard. NO ONE is chicken hawking you old wanna be bird, so get Real.

OF COURSE your hateful self would think denigrating one who freed slaves like yourself would be funny.. you the same homo that wishes Blessed Black women would die out, right?

and you 'bout a devilish lie with the AB comment. yes. i lit AB UP...after she repeatedly forgot who she was talking to. but of course your flamey self missed all the disrespect hurled my way before i shut it down. AB is alright with me, even now. and THAT was between women which you are NOT no matter how many mens you bed.

see...

this is why folk stomp snot out some of ya'll. lol. a gay gremlin ALL day.

we all have bad moments and i have forgiven AB as i pray she forgives me. whether she does or not...i have let it go. maybe you could do the same + stop lying on me you screeching sodomite. ps. i never told you to go gingerly sit on the toilet. i said somewhere. you picked the toilet 'cause you are packed full of what folk usually sit on the to rid themselves of. you.gremlin.you.

while i forgive AN + have nothing but Love for her- YOU on the other hand need to take your hateful self somewhere and shut it on up.

i don't call ALL men homos. just the OBVIOUS ones. closeted + out flaming up a storm like yourself. all zesty + mad 'cause MOST folk won't act like it is the BEST thing EVER.

did you happen to notice the obvious man energied soul going IN on homos on this thread?

or do you just prefer to girl fight? then wonder why NO one respects you?

Black MAN. stop.it.already.

dang.

now i am 'bout to pray for your demonic doing too much behind:

heavenly Father, in the Name of Messiah i pray you will help this screeching sodomite reconnect with his Natural Good sense. 'cause i PROMISE i am trying to be a Good follower. he is ALL up in women's convos, signifying, like bedding mens makes him qualified. get him Father. in Messiah's Mighty Name. thank you for keeping me in restraint with my comment. amein.

happy homo...be wise + know when to let things go. please. thank you.

what you are trying to project on me = far from the Truth. either way...i don't like you. you don't like me. let it be. otherwise you run the risk of being ripped to pieces Righteously.

you.have.been.warned.
