Excerpt from The Blaze:
Now if all of these people out there protesting for Trayvon are so concerned about the death of a youth, then where have they been these past ten years?
If people really cared about the loss of black youth, they would be asking what the hell is going on in their communities. They would be asking why black youth are dying at an epidemic rate. This violence is a symptom of a problem. A number of Chicago communities see half their residents living in poverty. Schools are failing. Economic opportunity is hard to find. The family unit has been all but obliterated.
…But you know, Chicago is just the progressive utopian dream, right? This is President Obama’s backyard. You have to ask why with the first black president are black Americans are one of the demographics – along with women – so adversely affected by his policies? Why is dependence upon government assistance at an all time high? Oh I see change, but there’s no hope to be found! And why does it take a white girl with American-Indian ancestry [to ask] these questions? Why is this not a topic of analysis on BET or One News or with Al Sharpton?
