    More black African negro’s bustin caps. If only we could get every last one of them in prison, this city might actually be a nice place to live, work, play, etc.

    • NWA

      • A. Saxon

        @ChicagoCitizen, NWA is a black racist extremist. He knows exactly what you meant.

    I didn’t get shot last night-I was home in bed instead of being out late night carousing-Isn’t interesting that these ghetto shooting usually happen between 11PM and 5AM? Perhaps too many people are out getting drunk or high and then the trouble begins. Maybe martial law and a curfew in the usual hoods such as Roseland-Englewood-Auburn Gresham-Lawndale-etc. etc. etc. might reduce the numbers

    I live in Auburn-Gresham and I think it’s still a nice place to life. I grew-up in the community and later purchased a home in the community. The reason why I purchase my home there is because I wanted to raise my children as responsible African-Americans, as I am, in an established African-American community. I didn’t want to my children to go to low class suburban schools, were your white neighbors smile and wave but, when they close their doors they bang-out negative comments about African-Americans on their computers.

    Fact is: the face of Chicago still is as it was when my family moved into the Auburn-Gresham community. We were the first African-American family to move on the block. It was two years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As we moved in, our new neighbors closed their doors and drew their shades. They never ventured from their homes. That evening, as we prepared for bed, we saw them moving out. My mother drew our shades. Some of the post on this story is a reflection of that day.

    It seems the African natives were restless last night.

    • Laura

      Yeah, they was bustin some caps. Stupid black homies!!

  • Deneshia

    I can’t believe these comments you have got to be kidding me. What planet are these racist on we are not going any were and crime isn’t going away in this city so sad racisum is alive and well .

    • Jerry

      What do you mean? It’s not that bad. Lighten up. Where there are black people, there will be crime, I agree, it’s sad, but that is the way it is.

  • j freeman

    In history white people were some of the racist violent people who ever walked the earth. We didn’t get like this until the 60’s when we decided to fight them back. Now we’re fighting one another. We need a real leader to lead us…

    • Doug

      Yeah, those crack rocks never lead anyone in a good direction.

  • freeman

    I can’t believe white people forgot about all the perversions they inflicted on the world while they were filled with insecurity

    • David

      @ freeman. Please keep in mind that slavery began when one African tribe defeated another African tribe and the defeated foe was sold to the white man. I, for one, think slavery was a terrible stain on our country and world. However, stating that “white people forgot about all the perversions they inflicted on the world while they were filled with insecurity” is just plain ignorant. There is good and bad in all races. People should be judged for who they are and what they do, NOT by the color of their skin.

    • NonWhiteAmerican

      I don’t think white people were ever insecure. After all, they have prevailed, and the past is irrelevant.

  • johnny

    For IL to recover JOBS, NATIONAL GUARD, and Governor need to hold surrounding states like IN and MISS accountable for allowing guns distributed in the state. THE END. If whites were killing each other there would be a NATIONAL OUTCRY.

  • Dark Is Not All White

    Whites would not do it . Trust me.
