White Flight

3 04 2014

Chicago

Why has Chicago moved from a middle class dominant city in 1970 to a rich and poor only city today?

The animated graphic presented here is largely a graphic of both white flight and the spreading of the black undertow.  How do I know this?  Because I can find taboos hiding between the lines.





Hug-a-Thug

25 02 2014

Chicago

CST:

When 14-year-old Venzel Richardson was shot to death on the South Side earlier this month, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy ordered his staff to draw up a list of warring gang leaders in the area.

Within 48 hours, the commander of the Grand Crossing District was knocking on their doors, warning them to halt the shooting.

Cmdr. Glenn Evans told the young men they’d face stiff prison terms for their next violent crime. But they also were given a contact for job training and other social services.

Except it’s Illinois, where “stiff prison sentences” are an idle threat.  Hell, in California, “lifers” are being turned loose like there’s no tomorrow, such that the average “life” sentence for Murder One is only 27 years.

We do know the job training and “other social services” will be there, though I doubt all that job training will actually result in a job, unless the job is an affirmative action make work giveaway.

Since it’s Garry McPilgrim running hug-a-thug, maybe the next round of visits, he can have the cops tell them that it’s the Pilgrims’ fault.

UPDATE 2/27

And guess what. It’s racist.





Metamorphosis

13 02 2014

Chicago

You’ve probably seen the original story.

And his mother’s postmortem.

Here’s the interesting part:

In 2010, Deonta almost died of meningitis, Stevens said. He spent a year in the hospital recovering and had lasting medical issues.

“After that surgery, I saw a totally different side of him. Aggressive behavior,” Stevens said. Deonta got into fights, was disrespectful at school and ran with a rough crowd.

Well, Deonta, no longer of this world, was 16 years old in 2014, which means he was 12 years old in 2010.

I wonder what happens to a boy or young man at about the age of 12 (give or take) that changes his demeanor and makes him different and more aggressive (some more than others).





He’s Trying to Find Molly

12 02 2014

Chicago

The wages of 365Black.

Here’s the story.

And if you dare, here’s the vid.  It is exactly what the story says it is, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

What I found interesting about the video wasn’t him, but two things:

1.  The people wearing clothes were wearing heavy winter coats and other cold weather appropriate clothes.  Which means it was very cold outside.  Yet, this one waltzes into the joint butt naked, which means he must not have felt the cold even while being naked and outside in it.

What could explain that?

Well, he wasn’t just trying to find Molly.  By then, he had already found her.

2.  A Category Two almost broke out in the reaction to him being inside the place.  That was alluded to in the article but the video shows that the article text downplays how bad it almost got.

3.  Everyone in the joint was black, so this must be the chocolate part of Chicago.

 





Parochialism

6 01 2014

Chicago

Federal district court in Chicago waves the naughty naughty finger to the City of Chicago’s prohibition of firearms sales.

The city tried to defend the ordinance with this argument:

The City … contends that inner-city gang members and criminals find it hard to travel to the suburbs, thus making it more difficult for them or their likely straw purchasers to shop at gun stores. Dr. Philip Cook, one of the City’s experts, attributes this travel difficulty to the “parochial[ism]” of gang members, and CPD Commander Gorman believes that making the trip to the suburbs is dangerous for gang members because they may have to cross rival gang boundaries both in Chicago and in the suburbs. So through these ordinances, Chicago intentionally increases the distance that Chicagoans have to travel to get to gun stores in order to tack on extra transaction costs (measured in time, effort, and danger) to any criminal attempt to buy guns. These extra transaction costs, the argument goes, deter would-be criminals from buying guns.

But these transaction costs are also borne by law-abiding residents of these neighborhoods, who are equally parochial and may suffer many of the same dangers by crossing into gang-infested territory. So whatever burdens the City hopes to impose on criminal users also falls squarely on law-abiding residents who want to exercise their Second Amendment right. What’s more, it is doubtful that keeping criminal users away from legitimate retail stores will choke the supply of guns to those users. According to a survey of convicted felons proffered by the City itself, “[l]egitimate firearms retailers play a minor and unimportant role as direct sources of the criminal handgun supply.”

“The parochialism of gang members.”

It’s amazing what supposedly non-racist or anti-racist people will say about black people when they think nobody is looking.

And this isn’t a function of gang membership or affiliation, either.  Generally speaking, blacks don’t have much of an ambition to travel.





Shoe Game

6 01 2014

Chicago

Three Bellcurvii were caught feloniously trying to augment their shoe games.  The way the story reads, they either knew there were shoes inside that rail car, or they knew there was something valuable inside even if they didn’t know precisely what, or they thought there was something valuable, in order to go through all they did to bust into the car.

Until very recently, I didn’t know what a “shoe game” was.  Now I know that a shoe game is what Bellcurvius uses to describe his collection of shoes that retail for three digits of dollars a pair but only have a single digit dollar manufacturing cost.

OTOH, I’m a fine one to complain.  I can’t laugh at ooks that line up to pay $400 for the latest pair of Air Jordans (“Js”), but I paid $600 for a pair of shoes pretty recently.  True, they might have been a pair of dress shoes from Brooks Brothers.  But…my shoe game, shawty, my shoe game.

And the accompanying text.

They’re trying to make this out like this is some kind of turning point.  But I’m not seeing that.  All I see and read is a bunch of complaining.  The only real substantial “solution” proposed here is that they vote differently, but all that would mean is that the same ooks would be voting for a different party or different people.

While it’s true that Rahm Emanuel got a majority of the vote from black voters and all the black wards in Chicago when he ran for mayor in 2011, but for Rahm, the blacks would have voted for Carol Mostly Fraud.

The men also took a backpack containing white gym shoes and a state ID, according to court records.

1.  I thought black people were allergic to government-issued photo ID.  That’s what they want us to think every time we say “photo ID for voting.”  Yet, one of their 14-year olds has one.

2.  Who keeps something as important as their photo ID in their bookbag?

“We’re not going to arrest our way out of the gang problem”

“Find creative ways to try to combat Chicago’s gang violence”

What creative ways do you have in mind, Slappy?  Going to find a dope set Shitavious, get down on your hands and knees and beg him to behave pretty please with a cherry on top?

No, what will really happen is that every time some banger tries to rub out another banger and winds up killing a toddler or an honor student in the process, schmuck U.S. Attorney here will hold a press conference, bang his fist on the podium and scream that this is intolerable and must stop.  The end.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

Plain words, he’s surrendering.





The Reason

29 10 2013

Chicago

Reason:

There is a common assumption in Chicago that guns are the equivalent of free-roaming cobras, being lethal and unmanageable by any means except elimination. The more guns, in this view, the more murders and mayhem.

That’s to cover up the real problem, free-roaming ooks.

“She said they do not serve alcohol there, and no one in her group had been drinking.”

Doesn’t matter.  When you gather people with names like Shambreya, Trevell and Zhiene and many many others like them in one place, even if they’re not drunk or high, you’re playing a game of chimpout roulette.

Brandon Johnson, an organizer with the Chicago Teachers Union, fired up the rally crowd at the University of Illinois at Chicago Forum, saying the 35 union and neighborhood groups were there to send a message to “the mayor of this city and his corporate, greedy elitist friends that this city belongs to the people in this room. Black people, brown people, poor people, working-class people.”

Chicago belongs to ooks?  Tell that to all the ooks that were pushed out of the city and into South Suburban Cook.  The whole nice things-black people conundrum/paradox.

WMAQ-NBC-5:

Ku Klux Klan Fliers Found in Southwest Suburb

According to the Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the KKK is much less prevalent than it used to be. There were 4 million members in the 1920s, compared to the 6,000 believed to be active today.

Potok suspects the packages are likely little more than advertising.

That’s what he says now. Within a few weeks, there will be thousands of beg letters pouring out of the poverty palace, using this as proof that the K is about ready to take over, and the only thing preventing it is your generous donations.

Fight on Facebook turns deadly: prosecutors

A 30-year-old woman gunned down her rival at a West Side gas station last month after the pair got into a fight on Facebook, Cook County prosecutors said Thursday.

Khalila Southall, who fled to Rochester, Minn., following the Aug. 26 shooting, allegedly admitted to Chicago Police that she and Lakeisha Tate had a previous argument on the social media site and “did not like each other.”

We civilized people have a better way of dealing with this:  Hitting the “Unlike” button.

That having been said, do we really want to narrow that digital divide?  Think of the digital divide as a feature, not a bug.

That is the sum of “late night basketball game” and “chocolate city.”

I’m also curious to see how Garry McCarthy blames this on pilgrims.

Garry McBlameThePilgrims implies that he’ll have the CPD shoot CCW permit holders.

He knows he isn’t going to do that, and he knows his officers won’t do that.

I think I know what he’s up to:  He’s greasing the skids so he can blame CCW for every ook “gun” crime from moment one that CCW becomes legal in Illinois.  You don’t think he will?  He has already blamed Sarah Palin, her reality show, the NRA and the Pilgrims for NAM crime in his city.

Chicago’s revvunds demand that Mark Kirk atone his evil comments about rounding up gang bangers by supporting reparations for slavery, which would largely benefit black revvunds.

This is Mark Kirk we’ll talking about.  This will probably be his next order of business after voting to send us to war in Syria.

Alan Keyes came out for reparations for Senate in 2004 when he was running for the same Senate seat Kirk has right now.  It was such an unpopular position that Keyes lost the election to…

…Barack Obama.

The Gang’s All Here

CST:

Gang members invited to summit designed to end the violence

Hundreds of gang members will be invited to a summit in Chicago in an attempt to broker peace in the bloodiest neighborhoods — 20 years after “gang summits” here and in other states drew national attention, organizers said Wednesday.

The Rev. Gregory Tatum, a California pastor with Chicago roots, said he hopes the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton will attend the Sept. 27-28 summit. Jackson spoke at a gang summit two decades ago in Chicago, delivering a message to gang members that they were the “new frontier of the civil rights struggle.”

If you’re black and you’re not at that shindig, then you’re not really black.  Or you’re a cornball brother, an Oreo, an Uncle Tom or you’re acting white.

And of course it will amount to nothing, because you can’t “broker a truce” between black gangs, and the reason you can’t do that is because black gang violence isn’t akin to national armies warring with each other.  Black gang violence exists to protect the street level distribution territory and financial health of the illicit drug dealing business.  Without the violence, then exclusive distribution rights are moot, and “accounts receivable,” so to speak, are worthless.  (Because illegal drugs are illegal, the above board system of contract law cannot be used to settle disputes.)  To tell black gang bangers not to be violent is tantamount to asking them not to make a living.
