    Nothing new here, Blacks killing each other…do they just enjoy trying wipe out their race? Week after week Blacks take each other out in shootings, fights you name it. Why? Why? There's no safe places in the Black communities, they destroy their neighborhoods with fear, trash thrown all over place. Why? Why do they keep treating themselves this way? Is it they enjoy living like this? Amazing….

      I wonder the same about whites commiting mass murders at elementary schools, high schools, colleges, universities, movie theaters and in their own homes.
      It never ceases to amaze me how you fools continue to try to blame one's "RACE" for being the reason for that person's senselessness.

        Quit arguing, its pointless. Both races have a history of killing their own.

        This person is an example of one proving one's own ignorance, by way of his/her own comment.

        I would guess to say the number of whites killing each other vs. the number of blacks killing each other in the city of Chicago is heavily weighted in favor of blacks. It never ceases to amaze me the ignorance of you colored folks killing each other and then getting on the 5:00 o'clock news and whine about how upstanding the victim was when most of the time those persons was affiliated with a gang or getting the likes of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton to hold another march. Yes, as for as the city of Chicago, the problem is within the black race. Personally I don't give 2 cents if you exterminate yourselves…. Please do accelerate the process so I never run out of anything on the news to read about.

        @Caligula : "Colored" folk? Oh, just STFU, you inbred peckiwood. You sons of bitches are the ARMS DEALERS. Remember that. You've NEVER heard of a Blk Arms dealer. Gov't and their (white) assigned scapegoats are the traffickers from country to country. Stupid-assed thugs can only buy the guns once they hit American soil. IDIOT.

      Nothing new until another pent-up white person shoots at a member of congress, a school or movie theater; or blows up a compound… or leads a mass killing having their "followers" drink poisoned kool-aid…. or straps their kids in cars and drives the car into the lake while blaming a black guy took them…..

      STFU, jackal.

    Mr B tries deflection instead of answering Alan's question: why is the black community continuing to slaughter each other week after week, decade after decade?

      Dana said:

      Its basically because of poverty and indolence. Same with any other race who are poor and lazy. Most whites of the Industrialization Era were so poor and unemployed that they committed all sorts of crime to just to bring home some bread and survive.

      It's not my place to answer for, or explain why people do senseless things. Unlike you rasist and ignorant individuals (who prove my point by way of their own comments) I simply pointed out a fact that "You People" always seem to coveniently overlook.

      When I first moved up here from the south, I had a yankee ask me, "Did you have as many problems with the blacks down south as we do up here?" I told him, you know… about 100 and some odd years ago we didn't have any problems till you yankees came came up with some bright idea."

        Iniatially, Lincoln was right when he said that whites and blacks will never co-exist peacefully. Moreover, he feared that the purity of both races might be compromised when they start sleeping with each other. That's why he thought of shipping the Africans back to Africa and even offered that proposal to the willing ones. Sadly, Lincoln's political ambition ate him up and he gave away his principles for the calling of the Republican Party and the capitalists. That's why he was forced to issue the order of Emancipation and the rest is history.

    What I'm worried about is that your bullshit and violent way of life will spill over into my community and cause my home value to decrease.You can go ahead and call me a peckerwood and white trash. But, I have a masters degree, which I have worked very hard for. I have worked very hard to get where I am today. I used to genuinely feel bad for the violence in Chicago, but now I am numb to it. For decades, the government has funneled money into your neighborhoods, schools, social programs, and healthcare. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. At this point, I think that the government is harming these people by continuing to pump money into those neighborhoods, because all that we are doing is enabling them. It is time for you to take a stand in your neighborhoods against the people who are committing there horrible crimes. It's time that you fend for yourself and accept responsibility for your own actions. It will be a rough first few years, but when you accomplish something on your own through hard work, you'll gain a new sense of pride. You will feel great about yourself and about your accomplishments. When you're successful, and feel so positive about yourself, you won't need the gangs, violence. Until you change, I have no pity left in me for you.

      I'm sure you encountered the term gentrification on your way to your Master's Degree. Sadly, that's just the way it is here.

        I do understand what gentrification means and how it works. You're right, sadly, it does happen. However, how is it fair that myself, and people of all races, have worked so very hard burning the midnight oil, only to be penalized for other people being lazy and constantly taking the easy way out. What else can we do? We have tried funneling hundreds of millions of dollars into these neighborhoods for decades. We have encouraged minority contracts, footed the bill for after school programs, gave single mothers more assistance to go to college, and paid for child care for them to work. So, logical reasoning has told us that constantly giving them money and work has not done anything to abate the problem. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again, and to expect different results. The only real option is to cut them and make them work to live, just like everybody else. The strongest instinct any human has is their instinct to survive.

    Black or white. Purple or green. Let's forget color. Let's stop blaming the "other guy.'" Life should be beautiful, but we are destroying any hope of it being so. It hurts me to see a mother crying because her child was killed. Can't we learn to live together and amongst ourselves. Where do we start? Forgiveness. Kindness. Let's clean up our neighborhoods to create pride and increase values. Parents teach your children the right thing to do and what not to do. Gangs need to make a lasting truce. Gangs can do more good for their communities if they got together to improve the neighborhood and make the area safe. We don't need Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. We can do it ourselves. Turn to the church.
