Life in Obama’s Chicago: “Nowadays you can’t even walk across the street, you can’t even walk to the corner store, you have to watch your back”

Who’s up for a national conversation about Obama’s neighborhood?

The innocence of a child could be seen playing at a park on the far south side of Chicago, Saturday afternoon.

Children run through sprinklers in Fernwood Park trying to cool off on a hot summer day, but, all around them, violence begins to creep in.

“Nowadays you can’t even walk across the street, you can’t even walk to the corner store, you have to watch your back,” 20-year-old student Ivy Sanson said.

“Usually I try not to go out to avoid these problems in Chicago. So I wouldn’t have to have someone in my family getting a phone call, like something just happened to your child,” 17-year-old high school senior, Loni Murray added.

That phone call had to be made Friday night after a 6-year-old girl was shot in the chest in the 300 block of 105th Street.

A neighbor, Shushana Moore, was there remembering the life of her friend killed by gunfire 5 years ago. She came to the aid of the young girl.

“To see that in your face like that? It’ll make you think about your life, like I’m 20 years old and I’ve got to see my life, but this little baby didn’t even get out of, she’s in kindergarten! Kindergarten! What did she do?” Moore said.

That is a question that remains on the lips of so many across the Chicago area.

Obama would rather let George Zimmerman’s future twist in the wind than say a peep about the daily carnage in his hometown, which is becoming difficult to keep up with.

    The discrepancy between the President’s rhetoric and reality tell us all we need to know about his priorities. It’s politics, not people. Our population has been dumbed down to the point where few can tell the difference.

    You have to consider the situation from the leftist point of view.

    There are lots and lots of murders in Chicago each year and the vast majority are black on black crimes.

    The Obamites have a choice:

    1. Try to fix Chicago.

    That’s impossible, the problem is too wide (black culture affecting millions of black people) and too deep (tens of thousands of black criminals). It’s not going to happen. If you try, black people will turn on you. Ask Bill Cosby how that project turned out.

    2. Try to change Hispanic and white culture. That’s actually doable. It’s easier to intimidate law abiding Hispanic and white citizens into accepting the demonization of Zimmerman than convince black gang members to become law abiding productive citizens. It’s trivial to convince black people to blame their problems on Zimmerman and SYG laws. Did anyone notice any demonstrations by Hispanics and white people supporting Zimmerman?

    Obama has a stark choice. Speak the truth about black culture and be cast out. Or he can blame Zimmerman and be considered a hero among black voters.

    Obama is a coward but he’s not a fool. He made the rational choice.

    Telling the truth about black culture won’t change anything, so that would be a sacrifice with no purpose and no point.

    Zimmerman is a victim of the mob. A wise person runs and hides from the mob. Obama isn’t so stupid that he’d stand in the way of the rampage to protect Zimmerman.

    and neither Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, nor any member of the CBC knows either the name or the circumstances of the 6 year-old that was killed. and i’m pretty sure she wasn’t killed in lawful self-defense.

    Obama was elected president on the basis of who counts the votes in big cities, most votes being counted by officials linked to organized labor and community organizing groups. Billions of federal dollars are being kicked back to these groups as you read this. This network of interlocking and self-sustaining institutions is well entrenched and will probably decide most elections into the future.
