Dueling Narratives

American schools are bad at teaching the economics of personal finance.

Chicago Bellcurvii line up days in advance to buy $650 shoes.





Affirmative Action Kills

Chicago

Haven’t done one of these in while:

At least 20 of the 111 black firefighters hired by the Chicago Fire Department after a marathon discrimination lawsuit had not been medically cleared by a department physician before starting work and two of them “suffered serious medical events and died while off-duty,” the city’s inspector general disclosed Tuesday.

Well That’s Easy

Fox 59 Indianapolis:

Indiana’s gun laws are again in the spotlight here and nationwide after some recent remarks by President Obama.

The president blamed Indiana’s gun laws for gun violence in Chicago during a town hall meeting Thursday. The comments echoed similar ones he made in October.

“Well, the problem is, is that about 30, 40 percent of those guns are coming from Indiana, across the border, where there are much laxer laws,” President Obama said.

Well then using that logic, all of Indiana should be a crime ridden hell hole, because that’s where the evil undocumented transactions are happening.

But, we already know that Indiana has magic dirt, and certain parts of Chicago have tragic dirt.

Or, maybe Trump’s great wall should go between Illinois and Indiana, not the United States and Mexico.  Or better yet, it should go around certain parts of Chicago, almost making those parts an open air prison.





Spot the Contradiction

Chicago

C-Trib:

Departing U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan used the final address of his tenure to call for a “new deal” for youth in Chicago and the nation, but also waded into the city’s police controversy with a call for changes in law enforcement training and conduct to repair eroded trust between police and the community.

Duncan also discussed gun violence, repeating his recent calls for stricter gun laws.

Oops, sorry, I just gave it away.





Quintonio

“Quintonio” must be Ebonics for “fifth kid.”

Whatever it is, get used to it, because you’re about to hear it over and over again, as BLM turns him into a martyr.

Also notice that:

He said Bettie Jones lived in a first-floor apartment with her boyfriend and was the mother of four daughters and a son. Her children range in age from 19 to 38. They include 19-year-old twins.

Although Quintonio was 19 years old himself, he was not one of the 19-year old twins of hers.  Also notice that Bettie Jones herself was 55.  55 minus 38 minus 9 months.





Proud to be a Cynic

Chicago

I’m glad I was born when I was, to be part of the generation I am, because that made me cynical enough to see through a lot of bullshit in order to get right to the truth of the matter.

The reason Rahm Emanuel is suddenly is happy with the DOJ investigation into the CPD is because he knows in advance what it will say. The DOJ may well issue a report slandering the entire city of Ferguson and its police department. But, Chicago is an important city for important people, including Rahm, Obama, and all the filthy rich white/Jewish liberals who incubated Obama’s political career. The DOJ won’t do to Chicago what it did to Ferguson, and Rahm knows it. What this report probably will claim is that the “problems” of Chicago’s black people are related to their supposed inability to move to and live comfortably in suburbs, and therefore the solution will be more “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (21st century Negro removal), more Section 8 apartment farms in Chicago suburbs, which will conveniently open up a lot of gentrification opportunities in Chicago proper for white libs. Just don’t notice that, because noticing is racism, or something like that.

Incidentally, Obama chose his Hyde Park house way back when because it had two layers of police protection, Chicago PD and University of Chicago PD. Yet, he wants everyone else to hate cops.





Flowing Through the Jazmine In My Mind

Chicago

Bell Curve City in full effect:

An 18-year-old woman who had her battered toddler taken away by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services last year was charged with child endangerment after she allegedly beat the girl so badly for not eating her noodles, she died over Thanksgiving weekend, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

After Jazmine Jones punched Elliana Claiborne four to five times in the stomach and buttocks on Nov. 28, she left her boyfriend’s Englewood house to buy weed, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Przekota said at Jones’ bond hearing on Wednesday.

The punches to 2-year-old Elliana’s body were so forceful, Jones’ boyfriend-who was playing video games at the time-said the blows would have “knocked the wind” out of him, Przekota said.

So we have the mother, 18 minus 2 minus 9 months, do the math, and her live-in boyfriend who is not the baby’s father who is devil may care playing video games in another room. DFS/CPS kept taking the kid away from her and giving her back, multiple times.

Or, to borrow someone else’s terminology, the BT-1000 and the Madden King.
