Beverly LaHaye wrote a series of very popular, mediocre novels describing life in America for those “left behind” after the good, righteous Judeo Christians were “RAPTURED” out of this sinful world. Well, those of us “left behind” here in Chicago are noting some truly bizarre racial, crime stories here in the city of Barack Obama and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.
This week Chicago experienced two crime stories that reflect rather poorly on my 2nd City, and could be taken from Dante’s Inferno – describing the ever worsening inner rings of Hell.
The first story describes the increasingly common incident of Chicago teen thugs assaulting and killing a guy (poor Mexican man with 12 children!) in an alley. The (blackish mongrels) teen thugs were apprehended because they filmed their assault/killing and posted the video on their own social networking page. Yeah, Chicago has some dumb **# killers.
The second Chicago crime story describes the late night, entertainment pursuits of some Black ex-cons: they rented a large limo – headed for Wrigleyville (where White 20s hang out) and apparently were filming a rap video of the Black brothers playing the knock out game – jumping out of the limo to randomly attack unsuspecting White people:
“Following the attacks, a 27-year-old man was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with head injuries, including a broken jaw, police said. Two other men, 22 and 27, also were injured and spoke to police, but were not taken to a hospital.
The most seriously injured man told police that three people came up to him and began punching him in the face, sending him to the ground, police said. The 22-year-old also was punched in the head by three men, he told police. The other 27-year-old was punched in the head and chest, also by three people.”
Surprisingly, some of the press reports revealed the races of the attackers and the victims. Some Chicago Tribune stories published photos of the Black ex convict, racist thugs that made them look like….. Black, ex convict, racist thugs!
In response, I am sending this letter to the editor:
I strongly object to the Tribune’s choice of photos in the Wrigleyville mob attack story. One photo made the suspects look like dangerous, violent, Black African American ex-cons! The Trayvon Martin story shows that the American public prefers to see child photos of Black African Americans in the news. I’m sure that these Black African Americans arrested in the Wrigleyville mob attacks didn’t always look like hostile, dangerous ex-cons. Couldn’t the Tribune have contacted the families of the suspects to find photos of the suspects when they were ten or eleven, or at five and six years old? We all need to work hard to combat RACISM – Chicago’s #1 problem. Sometimes, all it takes is a little imagination and creative use of deceptive child photos.
