Hot town, summer in the city.
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty.
Been down, isn’t it a pity.
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city ...

God what a shame, life means nothing to so many. Do you know what the saddest thing in the world is?

A mosquito trying to get blood from a mummy...it seems we are reaching this point where all the give me’s and addicts don’t feel they have been treated properly because of those who work.

It is very sad that we do not focus on job training and rehab for non violent offenders. For the animals killing kids for their bikes, get ready to meet God..

That's kind of a "half full" statement. After all lets not forget all those who survived uninjured in Chicago over the weekend...

Do you have ANY idea how many job training programs have been govt. sponsored?

For years as a state worker, I screened and signed up eligible people for jobs training, counseled them, checked with them at the schools/programs. It really helped a few; however, most, when they hit a bump in the road, gave up and dropped out.

They had so many problems and so much baggage, it was very difficult for them to overcome even the smallest daily problem.

The women, often single mothers would be on food stamps, subsidized housing, Medicaid, all the freebies. They signed up for training to get some more money-actually paid a stipend to go to training. Most had a sorry live in that beat them or their children, ate the kids WIC food, and spent the stipend money on booze or drugs.

Believe me, it is NOT the lack of programs. It is a lifestyle most are brought up in--3d or 4th generation welfare.

To be fair, most of Chicago is safe. There's just a few "organized communities" that you should stay away from.

Baraq lived in Ward 4 didn’t he?
Interesting that while it’s “green” on the map, it’s adjacent to one of the “hot spots” Ward 20.

Obama wasn't stupid enough to actually live in the communities he organized.

Isn’t that Ward 4?

This is the lifestyle they CHOOSE. They're too lazy to take advantage of all the opportunities afforded them. They love the baby momma drama, sperm-doner action, the fast life of drugs, booze and sex. They sleep all day, get up late, and live to party, thug, gang-bang all night long. Listen to the Chicago police calls on the internet sometime...the greatest show on earth and so revealing...so much action on the streets and in the alleys from 10pm to 5am. No parents, no morals, store front “revruns” out to take their money from the faithful, and launder money for the gangs.

Democratic/Communists in Chicago give them all the freebies and turn their heads to the crime committed by these moochers, in exchange for their vote. That's why the gangs continue to kill each other and the public...they have the protection of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his democratic/communist bosses in Washington. They feel empowered by oboma, eric holder, jesse jackson and sharpton, and the green light that oboma has given them to stomp all over anyone they so choose.

Everybody’s happy with their share of the pie, except the hard-working, tax-paying, civilized citizens of Chicago, who are moving out of Chicago in big numbers. And all that will be left are the illegals and the welfare moochers who pay no taxes. Whatcha’ gonna do then, Rahm?

Nothing will change until the democratic/communist party is
thrown out of Chicago. The unions have to stand up and stop voting democratic/communist. The cops’ hands are tied by Rahm Emanuel. The courts are in lock step with Rahm Emanuel...though some judges are honest. And let us not forget the corrupt, money-hungry former mayor Richard M. Daley...responsible for his share of gross corruption right up to the end of his term.

It's a wait and see game...what are you going to do about this, Chicago?

Most of the Fourth Ward encompasses the U of Chicago and U of Chicago Medical Center. Residents are upper middle class Black and white professionals, like Obama and terrorist Ayers.
It is an island. Residents reach the city center via a train that stops at the lake end of the neighborhood and whisks them past and through the blighted areas.

Ward 4? Is this a city or a insane asylum?

Maximum security prison?

First, THANK YOU for the detailed and very informative map.

Second, we weren't talking about YOU or I going there, but Jackson and Sharpton.

Wasn't it Jesse Jackson that said, "I get nervous when I am being followed by a young black man at night." ???

I guess the southside of Chicago is still the baddest part of town.
