    Gotta give Obama some of the credit.

    After all, he was a "community organizer" there.

    Just think how bad it would be if he HADN'T fixed all their problems...

    Of course that was when he was a candidate...free to lie as need be.

    Today, Trump's fix-it-day-one promises are as faint as the furthest 1000th Point of Light.
    Trump sent in federal help mid last year, it must be helping.

    Why wouldn't he return to his former home and help clean it up? With his high academic skills and organizing skills , he could turn the place around. Teamed up with Michelle, miracles can happen.

    Why?

    Is all of Chicago a war zone, or just certain places?

    What should be done about this?
    From what I understand, it's just in certain sections of Chicago

    Probably due to the fact that red-lining still exists in there

    Redlining is still alive and well, continuing to haunt communities that decades ago were denied access to home loan financing. A March report from the Neighborhood Community Reinvestment Coalition found that areas denied credit in the postwar period remain heavily disinvested in today.

    One community emblematic of the ravages of redlining is West Garfield Park, one of the city's poorest, most neglected neighborhoods. The city of Chicago has transferred millions of TIF dollars and is now planning to build a new police academy in the community for $95 million—money that many argue could be better spent on other services

    I am always amazed when people try to argue that it isn't really that bad, that South Dakota is more dangerous than the South Side of Chicago.
    Who the fuck argues that?

    Stick to North Dakota, the South holds the record for the largest domestic massacre is U.S history.
