Re: Two Lawmakers Declare Chicago a War Zone, Call for National Guard

Reference: Why do adults that are initially responsible for the first line of delinquency in youth still get a free pass for their involvement in corrupting, and aiding and abetting (the delinquency) of minors in this country? Why do they get a free pass? Good question. As long as Negroes opt for a culture of excuse making, victimization and entitlement, the black communities in Chicago will continue to spiral into a vortex of mass intimidation, senseless killings and street violence.

I think those are ALL very good ideas and questions, Sunnubian. But, I would think that the answers to most if not all of them would be "nothing", "no", and "none"! Those things are not happening in the city of Chicago. And I doubt very seriously that they're in any kind of financial position to make things like that happen any time soon. They're just trying to 'keep the lights on' in places like that. I have read about many community and individual efforts and organizations working to...

Yeah ... the article itself left a whole lot to be desired!! They insisted on using the low-end of the spectrum (I mean, if 14% rates the economy as "excellent or good" .. then that means 86% thinks it sucks !). They tell the story in the way that they want us to hear it. But as to what was really the meat of the article ... WOW! That's pretty big.

Ok forget those haters... one thing which I think is an honest criticism is that the representatives from the rural African Americans was missing.

Any discussion or commentary of hip hop that does not include or even acknowledge Zulu Nation, its history and work in discussion what Hip Hip "is" should not be taken seriously. This really isn't a NEW position for Zulu Nation, its just that people pay more attention to corporate backed imagery and not the actual culture.
