    Statistics say more brothers have died by murder there then casualties of US soldiers, Taliban and civilians, in Afghanistan in the last 2 years

    from gang violence

    why are gangs such a big thing there, and how can we from other ares help in this matter?

    Call out to the family in Chicago

    I feel you but most here including myself understand integration to be the crux of many of our problems.

    We were not "doing" each other like that in Tulsa Oklahoma, during the heyday of Black Wall street, nor were we doing each other like that in South Carolina, during the 40s and 50s,

    not saying you are wrong but

    are there other factors as well?

    and what can we from other cities and states do to help?

    You know bro, i'm one that likes to delve deep into things and figure out the whole scope of the truth behind things, and one thing i've always said in my life, is that "there is a REASON behind everything", and when one looks at the history of this country, the governments experiments on brothers in tuskeegee, the cia and the crack/gun infusion into our communities, the cointelpro, all the BS that has been undertaken behind the scenes to destroy our people, one comes to the understanding that this situation that is taking place in chicago within the last couple of years or so, with the increase of gun violence, and gangs,cannot be ruled out that there is a government hand behind what is taking place there.

    There is a spirit of Malcolm that is resurrected and will always resurrect when one seeks to dig
    into the nasty dirt and worms and look at the roots of a tree to try to figure out why the fruit of that tree is rotten

    not to go off on a tangent but your insight causes me to remember the conspiracy behind Mumia Abu Jamal and his trying to reveal to the public the Secret Society of police in Phillie,
    that is more then likely the real reason why he is on death row,

    that demonic secret society that Denzel tried to expose it's LA wing,
    in Training Day (the tattoo of membership on his arm)


    conservative conspiracy theorist Dr John Coleman said certain things enter and remain in a soceity, just long enough for the banks, politicians and insurance companies to make their money and just like that

    you don't see it any more.

    How many here have lost friends and family from AIDS?
    How many here have lost friends and family from crack?

    At one time it was a big thing,
    now one does not hear much about either any more



    but this time we must trump their play before more family needlessly dies

    as you say there may be a conspiracy behind this

    you said it yourself...the 40's 50's and 60's....this is a new age where black men live in a cage...and come out with a cage mentality....
    look at those years you are talking about and see who was predominately in jail...and then compare that to these days and times...
    combine that with a high level of segregation......
    maybe you will see what i already know....

    brother I feel you but there were more of us in jail due to Jim Crow laws!

    just drinking at the wrong water fountain could get you in the lockup

    not until the late 60's were more blacks in jail than whites...let me find the link for you....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "In 1950, whites made up about 65 percent of all state and federal inmates, white minorities made up 35 percent. Today, the opposite is true, with 35 percent of the prison population made up of whites"

    that is one of the reasons why most of us here are against integration because as you stated the numbers reversed at the end of

    segregation,

    that was my original point

    chicago is proof that your theory is flawed....
    that was my original point....

    in order for integration to work for us we have to get on the same page...
    nowadays we have too many house negroes for integration to be successful...imho
