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.
