What about these dead black kids? (on media ignoring 74 gunned down in Chicago over weekend)
WND ^ | July 09, 2013 | Joseph Farah

Don’t get me wrong; I mourn for Trayvon Martin.

It’s a tragedy that any young kid like him will not live to see adulthood.

But I don’t blame George Zimmerman for shooting him in self-defense.

I blame the corrupt, violent, lifeless, drug and gangsta culture that is breeding generations of Trayvons – kids who are uneducated, devoid of morals, without vision, dreams and aspirations.

I blame a political establishment that fosters all of this and lures kids and their parents into dependency on the state.

I blame the broader culture that tolerates violence against black people – as long as that violence is perpetrated by black people.

You think I’m exaggerating?

As the nation is fixated on George Zimmerman’s trial for the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida, over the weekend, 74 people were shot in Chicago – most of them black victims attacked by black perps. At least 12 were killed. Many of the injuries are serious.

Almost no one is talking about 74 people being shot in one holiday weekend in a city with the strictest anti-gun laws in the country. That’s more Americas that were shot in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the same time period – a lot more.

Where is the compassion for these victims?

Why isn’t Barack Obama looking at the pictures of these victims in his hometown and saying, “If I had a son …”?

Where is the anger of those liberals and Democrats who run the Chicago political machine and who are so outspoken about the Trayvon Martin case?

And when will Americans take notice of the fact that “gun-free cities” like Chicago are among the most dangerous places in the world?

Endlessly the talking heads on television debate the Trayvon Martin case. Nobody pays any attention to the 74

Violence and Victims are a Liberals Utopia always reaching out for the Gov to save them
and being bitten every time. But they still keep coming back with votes.

Chicago can burn and nobody will care outside of the Families of the dead.

Just yesterday Cavuto asked Je$$e about the black on black crime in Chicago. Je$$e’$ answer was to blame the economy and everything under the sun other than the black, rapper, thug culture that permeates Chicago and other American cities.

Bar-rack, Jesse Jackson Jr. and Al Sharpton ain’t got no political gain nor financial gain worrying about those other kids.

It’s about the race-baiting game.


Yep.

There is no white-on-black (at least somebody they can claim as white) aspect to them I guess. No media value, no Holder value, nobody to sue and settle with probably.

Just as simple as that.

Author misses the point these almost all on the south side of Chicago. Nobody gives a damn about those people. As far as Rahm and the cops go it is like trash taking itself to the curb

I wonder how many black kids’ lives Zimmerman actually saved in the shooting? TM going down a bad path and since most often blacks kill their own, the likelihood of him eventually killing other black kids is undeniable.

Exactly. Law enforcement is all about politics.

I beg to differ - they are being constantly proselytized to hate, brag, do drugs, "get over", treat women as ho's, leave a string of fatherless children with as many different baby mamas as possible, etc.

This is being done by powerful forces - media conglomerates, government bureaucracies, etc.

No doubt this will be a hot topic for discussion at the upcoming NAACP convention. MSNBS will run a simulcast.

If at 17 he wasn't already a triggerman, he would more likely end up a victim as he descended deeper into drugs and gangland. Some of his cellphone photos show pic's of his home grown weed.

He would probably get good enough at growing his own that he could sell any surplus. Once he started selling surplus weed, he would be at continual risk of reprisal by local dealers.

Zimmerman probably shortened his life by up to 5 years.

74 murders or attempted murders, and this doesn’t count how many times someone was shot at and was missed...

I would like remind the readers that Chicago may lead in homicides, but this kind of self-genocide is going on in every major and medium city in the US.

They don’t advance the agenda, so are ignored.

One of the biggest problems is a complete lack of belief that they will ever be treated fairly by the system.

If you believe that the police are corrupt, and you cannot count on them to administer a reasonably fair legal system, you only have tribal type justice to use for any wrongs.

The system in Chicago is corrupt.

New York brought its crime rate way down by the simple expedient of prosecuting all crime, especially the small ones. People started believing the system worked.

It is called the broken window theory.

People are expecting riots in the wake of the Zimmerman trial. With 74 shot over the weekend, maybe a riot would be less violent.

Maybe I'm putting the cart before the horse here:

Would it not behoove the corrupt to encourage such a belief in order to keep them down?

In other words, instead of changing the system for the better (rule of law, etc.), they've encouraged all this social engineering and judicial activism.

Makes one beholden to the powers that be, makes one insecure (after all, contract and property law is based on surety that the future will be enforced in such-and-such terms).
