    The cause of all this violence is LACK OF JOBS (and Economic Development),
    10,000 New Permanent Jobs COULD be created on the South Side — BUT Chicago Politics PREVENT that happening, and Jesse does NOTHING to help change that situation — in spite of so many people being killed……..

    Jesse won’t get involved unless there is money to be made. Ex. about 20 years ago He threatened to boycott Budweiser. Budweiser donated $50,000 to Operation Push and gave Jesse’s son a distribution job. Budweiser came out ahead by millions of dollars. Budweiser cost more in the black neighborhood than mine. I know because I work with a lot of blacks co-workers.

    I tend not to drop a great deal of comments, however I read a
    lot of responses on Teen shot near Rainbow Push Coalition headquarters
    | WGN-TV. I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or do a few of the comments look like
    they are coming from brain dead visitors?

    :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have
    to post. Would you make a list of every one of
    your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
