Trump and the cops get a few bad actors to incite riots and looting and now you have a bunch of film to scare white folks in the burbs.

Definitely coordinated. Just in time to make people regret shouting 'defund the police' and now 45 gets to come in and save the day with his enforcers.

Has nothing to do with blm or protest
It was over false information that quickly spread about an unarmed kid killed by police. He wasn’t a kid, was armed and is still alive.
Some ppl are reporting uhauls in the area. That had to be planned in advance, I would think.

They are still looting. I just saw a video from a few hrs ago.

He was shot late last night and by 7am this morning there's already chaos downtown. Protests have never been coordinated (and escalated) that fast.

By the time I heard about it there were over 100 police on the scene
And that was before 9. I saw someone tweet that they shot a kid and people saying it was a shootout. It kept spreading from there.

Just as the stuff in Portland was coming to a head, Drumf announces he's also going to send going his federal forces to Oakland. Downtown Oakland had been dead for a while at that point; there hadn't been protests in weeks. Then, a few night later, there's a "protest" and "ZOMG they're fire bombing the police station!" It smelled like so much bullshit.

In response to Reply # 0


          

and you have this in every major city but I don't think anywhere else is more pronounced as far as the difference between the have and have-nots. The Gold Coast/Michigan ave folks couldn't care less about the record murder numbers posted daily just 10 minutes away in places like Englewood and Riverdale. It seems like those worlds are colliding right now and the disconnect between the 2 that has went on for so long is in a way "chickens coming home to roost".

I do believe that sinister outside forces have had a major hand in stirring this pot in Chicago and other cities but the environments already existed and festered for so long to get to this point. Was that all part of the plan too?

Yeah.. it definitely has its problems but it’s a big ass city with 3 million people.

People in Ohio screaming about Chicago while they actually live in less safe smaller cities like Akron or Youngstown.

St Louis, Memphis, Rockford IL, Milwaukee got higher crime rates, but chicago has the worst reputation.


its easier to cut education budgets and gentrify when the rest of the world thinks the citizens are violent subhumans.

In response to Reply # 23


          

I thought it was interesting that Truth mentioned Riverdale, which is indeed a really fucked up neighborhood but which is also so far south that it's barely in the city and therefore doesn't get as much attention as, say, Englewood when this issue is brought up. It's a good example, but an uncommon one.

It seems relevant for this discussion, though, because Riverdale the neighborhood is basically adjacent to Riverdale the city, where this article (https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/national-international/chicago-gun-trace-report-2017/27140/) specifically names a gun shop that has heavily contributed to the total guns recovered by Chicago PD. It says that 60% of those guns come from out of state, and 20% of out of state guns come from Indiana - which you can get to in about fifteen minutes from Riverdale.

The neighborhood works as a nice proxy for the complexity of the issue here - where Chicago's city governance (including law enforcement) could make any number of completely correct decisions about how to manage gun violence and still get absolutely set up by a far more general American unwillingness to divest from the only necessary material ingredient for gun violence: guns.

St Louis & Baltimore are always at or near the top of "murder capital" lists is because those are the only 2 major cities that are their own "counties" and not part of a larger county so their stats are usually not linked to the larger more affluent metropolitan suburbs.

Spike Lee didn't make a movie called "Chi-Raq" for no reason.

Combining a clear moral perspective with material historical realities like that is very difficult for a lot of people. Like, difficult for their brains. Doing that was clearly difficult for her because of her conscience and love, but not because it was complex.

I have to teach a 20th century American History class this term, and the way she arranged those perspectives so that social unrest and violence can get some air as an "is" and not simply as an "ought" or "ought not" is an objective that I hope that these students can tackle with this level of heart - even if it won't (at first) be with that much skill.

you've nailed it...that is skill that is so completely foreign to how most of us communicate, period. Good luck with that..i wish i could take your class.

All things I (and I know most everyone here) has tried to say and definitely thinks but not anywhere near so eloquently or persuasively. Such good content to use in conversations with ignorant people around the subject of race and american racism.
