Here in Chicago the African American neighborhoods have the highest crime rates and the highest rates of unemployment. We unfortunately do not have an African American candidate running for Mayor of Chicago. So we will have ask Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia to address our issues.
The majority of voting age African Americans (aka Black People) will not vote in the next election. They may feel it really does not matter to them personally who is the mayor. They probably would vote if they could get an instant tangible benefit from their one vote. Although it would be nice if we all could get a direct monetary benefit from our vote, that is not going to happen.
Those of us who will vote need to call, write, e-mail, or use social media to ask Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia how they will help improve Chicago's African American neighborhoods.
