    Well come on, Lebron, Crapernick, Malcom Jenkins, Drew Brees, violent rappers, and the rest of the democrat party where are you? I guess black lives only matter when you have cheap political points to score.
    The city of Chicago notched a grim milestone last weekend, as 18 people were murdered on Sunday, May 31 alone, marking the deadliest day in the city since at least 1961.

    The University of Chicago Crime Lab's numbers do not go back further than 1961, so it's impossible to say how long it's been — if ever — since so many people were murdered in the city one 24-hour stretch.

    The Chicago Sun-Times describes some of the victims:

    A hardworking father killed just before 1 a.m.

    A West Side high school student murdered two hours later.

    A man killed amid South Side looting at a cellphone store at 12:30 p.m.

    A college freshman who hoped to become a correctional officer, gunned down at 4:25 p.m. after getting into an argument in Englewood.

    In the entire weekend stretching from 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 11 p.m. Sunday, May 31, 24 people were killed in Chcago and another 85 were wounded by gunfire.

    The next-highest murder total for a single day in Chicago was on Aug. 4, 1991, when 13 people were killed.

    "We've never seen anything like it, at all," said Max Kapustin, the senior research director at the crime lab. " ... I don't even know how to put it into context. It's beyond anything that we've ever seen before."

    This is not surprising. Im actually surprised there arent more murders in that pathetic liberal city. These fake outraged liberals only protest for the low hanging fruit. They dont have the guts to protest the true and obvious issue: black on black violence.
    Kaepernick is a clown with a fake black prison accent and a silly afro. Who could take that idiot seriously???

    This is a false dichotomy.

    Protesting police violence is not ignoring the endemic violence in the black community. They are two different things. Whereas one can be solved internally through changes to the culture the other is external and can only be stopped by making a ton of noise. There are black led efforts in Chicago to try to get young black men to stop killing each other.

    Turn off fox news man. In fact, turn off all the media. It's polluting your brain.


    To make the false dichotomy more clear because your post history is pretty racy I'll give you a secondary example:

    Why do white people protest not being able to get a hair cut but never protest the real problem - white school shooters?

    Do you see how ridiculous your argument is when you change races? Disagreeing with one thing does not imply agreement with the other. Use your head.

    (CNN)People like to talk about Colin Kaepernick. But while everyone was busy arguing over the on-field protests he spearheaded two years ago, the free agentNFL quarterback was putting his money where his mouth is.

    On Wednesday, Kaepernick completed a pledge he made in September 2016: To donate $1 million to organizations working in, what he called, oppressed communities.
    The donations spanned the country and touched on a wealth of social issues: Homelessness, at-risk families, education, community-police relations, prison reform, inmates' right, reproductive rights, hunger and more.

    Oh yeah?
    How many of those black on black killings in Chicago are unsolved?
    Why? Because NO ONE, least of all Blacks, give a fuck about black on black killing.

    Cops are supposed to shoot. Why the fuck do they carry guns? If Im a cop and some black guys come towards me and i say stop and they dont, they are getting shot straight between the fuckin eyes. We can ask why they were trying to attack me another time.
    Blacks are engaging in genocide against other blacks. They are a different breed than most.
