Sorry Mayor Lightfoot, Chicago Violence Isn’t Because Of Racism

The city of Chicago has become over run with violence. Democrats would have you believe that it’s because of “racism.” How exactly racism will make one person decide to become a criminal when most others just ignore mean people and move on is not explained.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot thinks that violence can be solved by being “less racist” but Alderman Raymond Lopez has come out against that idea.

“Generational gang life isn’t just something that’s encouraged. It’s almost revered in some neighborhoods,” Lopez, whose constituents are about 67% Latino and 22% black, told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “If you really want to get to what is at the heart of a lot of this, it is gangs, and it is the borderline collapse of the family unit in many of our neighborhoods … [Lightfoot] has avoided calling out gangs in our community as a source of violence in our city.”

According to Lopez, gang activity in schools is treated with kid gloves instead of contacting law enforcement.

Lightfoot has also focused much attention on addressing “root causes” of violence in the city, declaring on Thursday that racism is a public health crisis in Chicago after a city health department report found life expectancy between black and non-black is 9.2 years apart. Homicide is a major contributor to the early deaths of black residents, the report noted.

The violence in Chicago is completely out of hand. It’s obvious that these techniques are not working. Crime has to be punished, not ignored out of concersn for being “racist.”

The left goes way too far with their “empathy.” We can’t feel sorry for repeat criminals. Lives are on the line. Americans depend on the police to protect them, but Dems would rather take away their funding and give out hugs. They live in a different reality than the rest of us.

  1. Mayor Lori Lightfoot IS the BIGGEST RACIST IN America, for the Chicago Mayor, SHE has the most deaths that are Black on Black, WAY TOO STUPID to admit this, Deadly Armed Gangs, CRAZY LADY YOU want to DE-FUND THE POLICE, more like YOU’RE INSANE.

  2. A total idiot, another democrat twisting the truth, as they always do. As a mayor it is up to you to stop the criminals and trash, try for once to clean up your own messes and stop blaming your incompetence on everything else when it is your problems to clean it up as a paid political figure
    Remember you work for the American people (HA HA HA) the American people DO NOT WORK FOR YOU. START DOING YOUR JOB PROPERLY.

  3. She doesn’t care how many people get killed! These Demonrat imbecile can’t seen that all this is happening in Demonrat run cities! They want to defund the cops & they’re the 1st call when they need them.

  4. Beetlejuice and Kim Fox is at the Root Cause of this problem as well as the Demorat liberal judges who do not enforce the existing laws
