So long as the leading cause of death among black youths is black youths don’t bother me with this racism crap. Racism is pretty far down on the list of things for black folks to worry about in an era when black on black predation is do significant.

I’m sure the local preachers will be hitting violence by “yoots” extremely hard this morning.

They care so much about their “communities,” right?

Under-served. Sheeeeyit. Over-indulged is more like it. They’re nothing more than pets with crappy owners.

Yeah, free housing, cable, cell phone and computers are insufficient. The violence would end if were given an IPad 2.

I thought Chicago was a gun free zone, so it couldn’t have happened.
