66 People Shot, 30 in 2 Hours, in Chicago: Media Silent

In one of America’s most notoriously dangerous cities, Chicago, Illinois, international headlines are again being made about a weekend of violence in the city. This time, surprisingly not closer to the 4th of July or other days where the violence tends to increase, a ton of shootings took place primarily on the west side of the city.

According to Fox News:

“Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, called the Chicago shootings this past weekend that resulted in 11 deaths and about 70 wounded the “direct result of one party Democratic rule for decades.” The victims were between the ages of 11 and 63.

The shootings that took place over the weekend happened mostly in poor neighbors on the West and South Sides, heavily populated with gangs, said Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. “It is the same people who are pulling the triggers,” he said. “This is a small subset of individuals who think they can play by their own rules because they continue to get a slap on the wrist when we arrest them.”

So that’s the narrative painted by Fox News, and the mayor of New York during 9/11, Rudy Giuliani.

Sure, Rahm Emmanuel, the Mayor of Chicago is related to extremely powerful Israeli people and he’s corrupt: so is Rudy, and so is Trump. They’re all enemies to the class of people actually suffering from the violence in Chicago, and all of these people are just like vultures in this scenario, hungry for the chance to take some action in Chicago against some criminals who just “get a slap on the wrist.”

It doesn’t require “more force” to catch some criminals, and it’s not that simple: no one was arrested for these shootings even if you do believe in government.

Almost everyone who tries to understand this situation outside of America will fail to do so. Even those in America who don’t communicate with Chicago residents witnessing this may not know what is going on.

Chicago is a city that has been plagued with violence and crime since seemingly its inception. That’s it’s reputation. But what people have to understand about these shootings is that they are all concentrated, very concentrated in specific areas that are downright war zones. The south side and west side of Chicago are the main areas where violence is occurring.

That’s the “where” of this situation: the violence is happening in concentrated, very specific neighborhoods.

Why is it happening in specific neighborhoods? Because certain communities have been affected by very manufactured, seemingly deliberate factors, implicating somebody in a conspiracy to make young people kill each other in the city of Chicago.

People from these neighborhoods have spoke out in videos online, warning that crates of military-style weapons were being dropped off in neighborhoods in Chicago.

To be more specific, it seems he meant that train cars full of guns would be purposefully left on the tracks where their content could be stolen in these neighborhoods. After all, no person in charge of ensuring the goods inside a train car weren’t stolen would ever in their right mind leave it unattended in the middle of the worst neighborhoods in Chicago, and possibly America.

There’s another factor that nobody seems to be willing to face: the mainstream media and the music industry straightforward promotes the most negative aspects of African American culture at their detriment on purpose. That is, superficiality, greed, boasting, negativity in general: there seems to be an agenda behind big record labels supporting this attitude and way of life in acts like the Migos for example.

Ever heard of Drill? It’s a sub-genre of rap or hip hop that originated in the most dangerous neighborhoods of Chicago at the beginning of this decade, and the genre centers around a several decade long rivalry between gangs, primarily the GD’s (Gangster Disciples) and BD’s (Black Disciples). The two gangs, otherwise referred to as criminal organizations, were created around the beginning of the 1960’s, and have existed in the city for now almost 60 years.

60 years, these gangs in Chicago have held territory in the neighborhoods that are seeing violence, and still the fighting continues.

In popular culture, the warfare between people of the same color, class, culture, and everything is promoted and glorified to tell the truth.

This is an album cover for “Walking Legend” by Fredo Santana, a rapper from Englewood, Chicago who was basically born into a Black Disciple family. That’s him as a baby being held by his father. As you can see, he was born into it.

Every man makes the decision for himself in the end whether to sacrifice morality in life for whatever they aspire to attain, but the factor of being born into this is undeniable.

A trap has been set for all the young men and women in all neighborhoods across America that are plagued with poverty and drugs.

This is the equation: poverty, expensive housing and food, necessities, ect, lack of ability to find work and no culture of community economy, plus drugs, equals urban warfare.

We all are familiar with (or should be) the work of journalist Gary Webb, who exposed the CIA’s role in trafficking cocaine to the United States and starting the crack epidemic that kicked off the entire modern day criminal culture. Gary Webb’s body was found in his home in a suburb of Sacramento, California in 2004, with two gunshots to the back of the head, and they still ruled it a suicide.

So in conclusion, understanding all the parties involved and the fact that this is really inter-generational gang warfare fueled by mysterious crates of weapons and the extreme prevalence of drugs on the streets of Chicago and across America, who could look to the government for a solution?

The government will never have a solution in this situation, and don’t look to them for one because lots of things suggest that they want this situation to happen. It’s more control: more reason to lock down a city and practice controlling people. Anything would be better than giving the state an easy target to practice totalitarian control with.
