Has President Obama, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson mentioned anything about the absurd number of gun shootings that took place in Chicago during Memorial Day weekend? I highly doubt it.
CBS Chicago has reported at least 12 were killed with 43 wounded, including a 4-year-old girl. Another victim was a 47-year-old woman shot from her boyfriend. It cannot be denied that chances are, most of these shootings were probably a black-on-black crime, which is an everyday occurrence in Chicago, and it is not a new pattern.
For example, leaders such as Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson have discussed Ferguson and Baltimore, but never do they mention what is happening to the black youth in Chicago every day.
And the president was too busy anyway. He was eating his ice cream, which is apparently the main purpose of Memorial Day to some people. Right Democrats?

Now I applaud those leaders who have spoken about the amount of violence that took place in Chicago this weekend, but unfortunately, there are not enough, and if there were, the mainstream media lacks to cover the story.
I wish Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson would show the same outrage over what happened this week in Chicago as they are with Ferguson or Baltimore, but the fact is they don’t, simply because Chicago does not fit their political agenda.
