Black politicians have been running the South Side of Chicago since before Prohibition and they drive the finest cars, play with the finest black and white women and amass a fortune, and still, their neighborhoods go to the dogs.
I am tired of hearing about whites screwing over blacks. It’s always been equal opportunity in Chicago.
You mean not every black kid gets to have a Budweiser distribution business when he grows up?
Yes like Dorothy Tillman, whom Obama supported.
The Alderman and the Senator, April 16, 2007
I was surprised, and horrified, to learn that Barack Obama endorsed Alderman Dorothy Tillman for re-election in Tuesday's runoff. For those of you who aren't local or who wisely avoid the open sewer of Chicago politics, Dorothy Tillman is the disastrously corrupt, incompetent, and even demented alderman of the south side's long-decrepit 3rd Ward.
She's a lock for the city council's worst member (in an exceedingly crowded field of worthless time-servers), a politician whose sole purpose is to employ her children, stoke demagoguery (her signature issue is a quixotic effort for slavery reparations), and maintain her own North Korea-like cult of personality
Its always been equal opportunity in Chicago.
One of our local talk show hosts states that Michelle Obama’s father, who she says had a blue collar job, was earning $40.000 in the 1960s as an operative for Chicago politicians.
No wonder Obama decided on a career as a “community activist” after his extremely elite education. It was pure nepotism - father-in-law helping son=in-law.
