4 Dead and 9 Wounded in Chicago Shootings During Night Following the Trayvon Martin Rally … What is the Real Issue that Plagues Young Blacks


To borrow a line from ‘A Few Good Men’ … “You can’t handle the truth”.

Yesterday, Chicago like many other cities across the United States had rallies for Trayvon Martin and made efforts to pressure the DOJ to bring Civil Rights charges against neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, the man who was found not guilty in the murder and manslaughter of Martin. However, that did not stop black leaders, politicians and so-called civil rights activists into attempting to made George Zimmerman public enemy #1 to the black community and to change stand your ground laws, of which were not even a part of the Zimmerman  defense.

However, the night following the Trayvon Martin rally in Chicago, 4 were killed and 9 wounded in shooting. This follows the pattern of every night in Chicago as blacks are gunned down, usually by other blacks. Where are their rallies? During the George Zimmerman murder trial where all the focus was on the death of Trayvon Martin, in Chicago alone, 61 individuals were murdered. Yet none of the black leaders want to address that issue. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson cannot blame racism on this carnage. When will black America and Barack Obama address the real issue that is the greatest threats to black teens, black on black crime? If Obama was a true leader he would use is power and influence to deal with the real threat to blacks, not conveniently exploit the Trayvon Martin death for political purposes and cause further unrest.

Shootings left at least four men dead and 9 other people wounded across the Saturday night and Sunday morning.

The violence was largely confined to the South and West Sides and three of the incidents had more than one victim, according to authorities.

The most recent shooting happened about 4:01 a.m. in the Cabrini-Green neighborhood – just north of Chicago Avenue on Cambridge Avenue. Two men, one 25 and the other either 23 or 24, were shot and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The older of the two was dropped off there and died of his wounds, and the other was taken there in an ambulance with a wound to the leg.

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.

UPDATE I: 6 dead, 23 wounded in shootings since Friday night … but the civil rights activists, Democrat politicians, Leftists and President Barack Obama would have you believe that racism is the biggest issue for blacks and stand your ground laws. Wait a minute, doesn’t Chicago have some of the toughest gun laws in the country? How can there be changes to “stand your ground” laws and guns like in the case of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin if guns are illegal?

From Urban Grounds, Just another day in paradise Chicago … more black on black violence, death and carnage over the weekend.

      “Do you know that Negroes are 10 percent of the population of St. Louis and are responsible for 58% of its crimes? We’ve got to face that. And we’ve got to do something about our moral standards,” DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. TOLD A CONGREGATION IN 1961. “We know that there are many things wrong in the white world, but there are many things wrong in the black world, too. We can’t keep on blaming the white man. There are things we must do for ourselves.”
