What About Chicago and New York Violence?
As race hustlers obsess over the situation in Ferguson, someone should demand they address the real epidemic plaguing America’s urban cities – gang violence. CBS Chicago reports, “Seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, police said.” And according to Fox 5, “Fifteen people were shot in a rash of violence in New York City. The violence left two people dead and 13 others injured within a span of just 8 hours.” However, because most of these shootings consist of blacks shooting fellow blacks as a result of poverty plantations fostered by statism, civil rights “leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson remain deafeningly silent on the issue. It’s simply astounding that Gov. Jay Nixon deployed the National Guard to quell the violence in Ferguson as the result of a shooting involving a white cop and a black teenager – a case that’s still under investigation – yet the violence bloodying the streets of Chicago and New York City continues unabated and ignored.
