Where Is Black Lives Matter? 104 Shot,14 Killed In Chicago Last Weekend; Including 3 YR. Old Boy

Another week and it’s time to reflect on our recent past, today’s opportunities, and our future. The news of more carnage, over Father’s Day weekend in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle is featured on the news outlets, while hundreds of other cities also have violence, every day, every year. Rioting has terrorized US cities over the death of 2 back men, George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks, in altercations with white police officers, ushering in all those who make money from the anger and social justice. What you don’t see are the same SJW leaders showing up in Chicago to help restore order in their neighborhoods.

Chicago, IL, like Baltimore and Detroit, has experienced shooting deaths of black Americans since I was borne. Over 90 percent, black on black crime, the city has attempted to address the issue with free public housing, more policing, and increased social services. What has been absent from the shootings has been the SJW leaders, like Al Sharpton, and the liberal news networks. Sure they report on the basic summary of the numbers etc, but at the same time masking the race and ages of those involved, unless, of course, it involves a white police officer shooting a black American.

The city’s police superintendent, David Brown, did his best to address the issue Sunday, promising to quell the rising tide of gun violence — and particularly gang-related gun violence — on the city’s south and west sides.

From The Chicago Sun-Times

“Chicago saw its highest number of gun violence victims in a single weekend this year with 104 people shot across the city from Friday evening to Monday morning, 14 of them fatally. Five of those killed were minors.”

“The weekend saw more shooting victims but fewer fatalities than the last weekend of May, when 85 people were shot, 24 of them fatally — Chicago’s most deadly weekend in years.”

I am looking around and don’t see any of the BLM and Civil Rights leadership reporting from the Southside. Why you may ask, those killed were primarily black on back murders, this story, like the others, doesn’t help their agendas.

One Social Justice Warrior (SJW) activist working is, The Chicago Mayor. After decades of failed democratic leadership, the recently elected Mayor has put the blame on funding the police department and wants to shift the funds to other services, in effect ending the services of the men and women blue.

From The Daily Wire

Chicago has become a target city for the “Defund the Police” movement and a number of demonstrations are demanding Chicago’s mayor Lori Lightfoot shift funding away from the city’s law enforcement agencies and better finance social services, anti-poverty, and mental health programs. At least two aldermen, members of the Chicago City Council, have proposed near-complete defunding of Chicago’s cops, per the Sun-Times.

Chicago is not alone in being both a target of anti-police agitators and a hotbed of violence. Minneapolis had a mass shooting over the weekend, which left 1 dead and at least 11 injured. Seattle, home to the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest,” or CHOP, also saw a deadly incident of gun violence late last week, followed by two more shootings over the weekend.

Is there is any hope those in the civil rights movement will coalesce around making the changes needed from the inside out or will those in their leadership, including BLM, only focusing on promoting fear and anti-white sentiment? Will they only pull into town after a police shooting and rake in the donations from those looking to express their frustration for the lack of changes they have been promised for decades? Without strong leaders rising up, like MLK, I do not expect to see changes anytime soon.
