Life in "Progress" city - Chicago edition

Part of solving a problem is actually recognizing the true cause of the problem.

Heather MacDonald has a great article breaking down the teen homicide epidemic in Chicago.....

The September 24, 2009, mob assault on 16-year-old Derrion Albert was captured on cell-phone video and broadcast around the world, provoking a crisis in the Obama administration. The White House was at that moment pushing the International Olympic Committee to award the 2016 Games to Chicago, a city intimately associated with the president and his inner circle. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan hurriedly flew to the Windy City promising more federal aid, while the Chicago school system launched a $40-million social-services and security program to connect “at-risk” male students with social workers.

Not surprisingly, the federal and local efforts have borne little fruit. Since Albert’s death, 78 more youth under the age of 19 have been killed in Chicago, overwhelmingly in black-on-black shootings. The studied silence in Chicago about the massive reality that underlies that city’s youth-violence epidemic—black family breakdown—is so complete as to border on perverse.

And that's why the KKK couldn't have devised a better system of exterminating black youth in this country.

Conservatives have been called insensitive, unsympathetic and even racist for simply recognizing that the welfare state hasn't done anything but drain billions of dollars from the public coffers to subsidize genocide in our cities.

When the poverty pimps in this country start calling this out, it'll be the first step in cleaning it up.
