Tell The Mayor How You Feel

If you feel the Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department Garry McCarthy needs to resign, tell Mayor Rahm Emanuel Garry McCarthy has to go ASAP.

If you feel Cook County States Attorney Anita Alvarez needs to be fired, organize a mass voter registration and mobilization movement, and vote Anita Alvarez out of office.

I don't think Mayor Rahm Emanuel will run for a third term, but if you feel he will, organize a mass voter registration and mobilization movement, and vote Rahm Emanuel out of office.

After The Latest Drama And Protest

After the latest drama and protest are over, Chicago's African American leaders will go away until there is a new opportunity for them to grandstand.   They are not visionary, proactive leaders.   They are part of the reason why Chicago's African American (Black) neighborhoods are undesirable places to visit and reside.

Chicago's African American (Black) community is in a decline, and our "leaders" are hastening the decline.  They seemingly will not focus on helping black boys succeed in elementary school so they won't commit crimes in their teens and twenties.  They apparently will not focus on persuading low income African Americans to vote in every election.    The African American community in Chicago is domed if new young leaders do not emerge.

Stop The Ignorance Stop The Crime

African American leaders don't get it!    If they want to stop the crime in our neighborhoods they would focus their attention on low income public school students and their families.

In spite of the legacy of slavery, there are African Americans (aka Black People) that raise well behaved children who do well in school.   In spite of racism, discrimination, disrespect, bad public policy and other nefarious plans that keep African Americans separate and unequal, there are African Americans that raise well behave children who do well in school.

Let's get real!  Someone has to teach (not all, but most) poor Black families how to raise well behaved children who do well in school!   This may sound too offensive, and the nayayers will say; don't demonize the poor, don't blame the victim, you have to meet people where they are.  Now that is the real problem, all the people who say they are "helping" the Black underclass, meet the Black underclass where they are, and they leave them where they are!
If we don't break the cycle of generational ignorance, the crime will continue; and Chicago's African American neighborhoods will continue to implode.
