Not a fan of the headline with the stat, being as it cherry picked one particular week. Next week it might read "shootings down 60%"

Yes, its ridiculous, it's been ridiculous for some time, I gave up hope a long time ago, which is why I moved away. Crime,schools,taxes were huge incentives to get the hell out.

I have serious doubts that any amount of money thrown at the problem will solve the issues they have. It feels like its rotten to the core and far too many people want to blame the system. Its deeper than that.

You dont have to live in the "inner" city to decide that there are better options out there for a family.

so you really have no better insight on chicago poverty than someone who lives in timbuktu

everybody knows that there are better options for a family than living in a bad chicago neighborhood. much better. many if not most of those who live in such neighborhoods don't want to be there

Every post I read from you tends to be argumentative, I think you just really enjoy picking fights by antagonizing people until you finally get a rise out of them.

Sorry, but I don't enjoy those types of games, go poke some other bear please.

you flat out said that you moved from chicago because you had given up on the inner city ever improving. nobody who doesn't live in and/or frequent those neighborhoods moves from chicago for that reason. don't make obviously false representations if you're not prepared to be called out on them. you've probably never even met anyone from one of those neighborhoods. and no, getting derrick rose's autograph doesn't count

is a story about your best friend from fuller park up next?

Tearing down any piece of art is stupid. I agree, and support the removal of many from public places, but they should be placed in a museum with context to describe its history to teach future generations what happened.

All the Pharaohs had slaves, and the pyramids were built using them. I see nobody suggesting we blow them up, or burn the mummies.

History needs to be preserved, but correct context needs to be added to teach future generations of all the injustices in human history,

The Usa has brutal past, and I do not deny that. Intellectually correct the history books, and teach students what actually occurred without the sugar coating, and also why it was wrong.

This is just horrible:

Edit: 18 killed this weekend. After a relatively slow start and two good years of significant decreases in homicides, Chicago is now quickly on pace to hit 2016 homicide numbers.

Imagine that...slavery was resolved almost 4000 years ago in Egypt.

We havent even reached 200 years without slavery.

And the Egyptian slaves went and formed their own land - Canaan. In sharp contrast to the slaves of the past here...whose greatgrandchildren and grandchildren have to see the oppressors statue even when they go to a public park.

A park for which they also pay taxes to help maintain.

Huh?

The conversation was about Slavery and Statues.

And how it relates to the Sphinx
