What a Joke … Chicago Holds Rally for Justice for Trayvon Martin as Their City is a Killing Fields for Blacks … 61 Murders Took Place in Chicago During Zimmerman Trial
THE CHICAGO KILLING FIELDS: They say charity begins at home. Maybe protests and rallies should as well. The city of Chicago should maybe worry about their own issues of black teen deaths before they hold a rally for Trayvon Martin. Just saying.
Like many cities across the country, Chicago held a rally for Trayvon Martin, the 17 year old teen who was shot by George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer, in Sanford, Florida in self defense. Zimmerman was arrested, charged with murder and found “not guilty” of murder and manslaughter by a jury. But the jury verdict did not stop the race hustlers from fanning the flames of racism and calling for protests in an effort to force the DOJ to charge Zimmerman with Civil Rights charges and hate crimes.
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network organized the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies and vigils outside federal buildings in at least 101 cities: from New York and Los Angeles to Wichita, Kan., and Atlanta, where people stood in the rain at the base of the federal courthouse, with traffic blocked on surrounding downtown streets.
Chants rang out across the rallies. “Justice! Justice! Justice! … Now! Now! Now!” ”We won’t forget.” ”No justice! No peace!” Many also sang hymns, prayed and held hands.
And plenty of participants carried signs: “Who’s next?” “I am Trayvon Martin.” ”Enough Is Enough.”
Really Chicago, do the protesters really want to know who’s next? Is enough really enough? Who are these people kidding? Are they just in denial or do they really not pay attention to current affairs or what is going on in their own back yard? Do the people of Chicago even comprehend that there were 61 murders in Chicago, Illinois while the George Zimmerman murder trial was taking place? 61!!! Why is it that President Barack Obama has nothing to say to the black community about blacks killing blacks? Instead, it’s about racism. For some reason, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus and the rest who show up to rallies for Trayvon Martin and his death calling for “justice” seem to care little about the real crime and issues that threaten blacks and black teens. Do they really want to break the cycle, or just find excuses to blame others?
But instead it being about the “Killing Fields” of Chicago, they make it all about George Zimmerman and focusing on a teen that was killed in self defense, so says the jury.

According to data available on the Chicago Tribune’s RedEye website, 52 of those killed were black, 43 were black males, and seven were children under the age of 18. The vast majority died of gunshot wounds.
The 15-year-old boy, Ed Cooper, was shot in the chest about 5:08 p.m. in the 600 block of North Lawndale Avenue in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien said.
He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was declared dead at 5:54 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Cooper lived in the 1200 block of South Kostner Avenue.Police were dispatched to the block following a report of a person shot and found the boy, O’Brien said.The boy was playing a ballgame at the playground of Laura Ward Elementary School, formerly Ryerson Elementary, 646 N. Lawndale Ave., when he was shot, according to a relative who did not want to give her name. Ryerson was one of 49 elementary schools closed this June by the district.
Brandon Cage was standing with a group of people when a black Ford Taurus pulled up and a man got out and yelled gang slogans, according to police and Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The group yelled back their own slogans, and the man started firing. Cage was hit several times, and was rushed in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center, police said.
But in Chicago, the crime and murders go on and on and on, but some how they all focus on a “white” Hispanic who killed Trayvon Martin in Florida, who was found not guilty of the murder and no one has been able to show that he was a racist, ever was a racist and ever committed a hate crime.

But the race baiters who cling to the George Zimmerman murder trial and make him the face of racism, even though he is Hispanic, oh sorry, as the liberal MSM dubbed him, a “white” Hispanic, they sadly do not even know the names, nor care to the ones that are murdered in the Killing Fields of Chicago. Check out the following Sean Hannity interview where he stumped Hilary Shelton, the NAACP’s Washington Bureau Director, by asking him a simple question, “There were 61 deaths in Chicago. 61 deaths during just the time of the Zimmerman trial. Can you name one one person by name that died in Chicago?” Shelton could not name one!!! Now that is criminal.
