Maybe not but at least he could try. Ignoring cancer is not the cure.

Well he could try. Although he has tried to fix anything else so I guess it would just be par for the course. Pun intended.

Removing the cancerous growth is the cure. Simply applying lip-service will do nothing.

My mother side of the family grew up in Chicago...... When my cousin graduated from high school, they all left Chicago ..... Some went into the military, other went away for college and never went back......

One cousin of mines never step foot back in to the state of IL once he left......

Of the 11 aunts and uncles, I think 3 still live there.... Every body else has moved.....

When folks are ready to make a change and better their situation, they will make the proper moves needed to do so.....

Until then, it will be the same o same o......

How do we remove the cancer? Make a nerve gas that selects only them kind of people?

Take away black violence and what do you have ? Basically a peaceful nation. But that doesn't fit the liberal narrative.

This is what they created and they could care less about it.

What might that cancer be?

Maybe we should look at other crime capitals...

"Crime, though present in lesser degrees beforehand, worsened significantly with the introduction of crack cocaine in the latter part of the 20th century. The neighborhood lost wealthy residents, with the worsening safety problems, and, after the 1992 riots in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, many African Americans left the city. Meanwhile, many Latino and other immigrant families moved into Compton, including Samoans, Tongans, Koreans, Filipinos, Belizeans and East Africans.[32]

During 2006, Compton deployed twice as many sheriff's deputies and the murder rate has steadily decreased in the last decade.[33] Recent reports show that Compton's violent crime rate has been reduced by 30% over the last ten years, and is continuing to be reduced.[34]

Although the U.S. News & World Report does not even list Compton in the "The 11 Most Dangerous Cities" for overall crime rates in the United States,[35] it contrasts the CQ Press, using data from the FBI's annual report of crime statistics "Crime in the United States 2010," ranked Compton as the 8th most dangerous city in the country.[36]

In 2010, Compton Station area homicides declined by about 38 percent, with 26 homicides in 2010, in comparison to the 42 homicides in 2009.[37] This number is a 53 percent decrease from five years ago, and was the lowest number of homicides since 1972. The sheriff’s department reported: Taking into consideration the population changes, last year showed the lowest homicide rate since 1965. Property crimes also decreased.[37] These figures demonstrate a 67.2 percent decrease over the five-year period from 2005 to 2010.[38]"
Knowing the political and organizational change in Compton might also be instructive.

Compton's Latino community and immigrant community has taken a more active role in local government (displacing the "African-American with former Samoans, Tongans, Koreans, Filipinos, Belizeans and even former East Africans. This mix of people are trying to live as Americans (they are not living the dream to be separate but equal hyphenated-Americans).

Compton's Police force leadership was removed and replaced by a contract with the LA County Sheriff. This statement alone is not exactly accurate (too simplistic), as the former Police Force leadership was removed by the prior African-American political machine before this hyphenated political machine was voted out of office (with numerous legal battles). When the election and legal complications started working themselves out the brother of the former (removed) Compton Police Chief became Mayor.

One of the first changes the new Mayor enacted was the contract to the LA County Sheriff, who hired most of the former Compton Police Officers. The problem, in hindsight, was not the Compton Police Force but the former hyphenated Compton political machine that dictated to the Police Leadership where and how to police the streets (and chose to fire them when they began to address the problems). The Police Officers did not change, the politics changed, and the community and crime statistics have benefited greatly from the change.

I am sure other similar examples exist, where the long standing political machine was discarded by vote and conditions improved. Maybe Chicago needs the political change (away from the long-standing political machine in control during these decades of decline)?

The whole entitlement mentality that is encouraged by the government would be a good place to start. For generations that have lived on the premise of free handouts instead of values of hard work. There is a complete lack of self worth when one continues to receive free chit for no effort.

Cancer = government encouragement

Why the hell does it have to be the president or government to clean up the mess? When the hell is the Black Community itself going to pull on their Big Girl Panties and clean up their own mess? I'm tired of excuses for them as a whole. No other cultural group in the USA still has problems they exhibit, it's not up to anyone else but them to fix this mess.

First of all, you need to put away the broad brush. "black community" is as inaccurate a term as "white community". Nothing but a couple of divisive terms. The former translates to "poor people" and the latter "affluent". There are poor "whites" and affluent "blacks" who occupy both so-called "communities".

Just say "ghetto" or "inner-city". Of course, many inner-cities are gentrifying. Baltimore is home to more "whites" than "blacks" these days.

Secondly, PEOPLE have their problems. However, so-called conservatives didn't GAF about the "black community" until liberals started threatening to take away your toys (guns) because of something that happened in the "white community".

Liberals and conservatives alike don't GAF about what happens with guns, disease, economics, or anything else until it affects the "white community". Typical.

Yes, black violence was never discussed, ever, on this forum until the Sandy Hook shooting. Nobody ever brought it up at all.

GMAMFB. You're lying and you know it.

Sure it's been brought up here plenty of times.

As a means to characterize "blacks" as animals and "whites" as pure.

Now you are using "violence in the black community" as a means to obfuscate the gun control debate.

IOW, you all are no different than liberals with regard to using unfortunate events to forward an agenda.

From the news that's been coming out in last few months, the most dangerous places in America are gun free zones. I'm just waiting for a bank to get robbed at gunpoint while I'm in it, totally defenseless.

On a side note, if the President concentrated on just "blacks", you guys would call him what you already call him...............

A racist.

That you now want him to address "black" violence is nothing more than an obfuscation. Hypocrisy at its finest.

This forum has constantly discussed black violence for at least the last
ten years. And in that time the black violence, black thugs, & the gang-bangers
have gotten worse. Much worse.

Now I see that violence is part of the black DNA. It's the only explanation.

There is no hope for the thug black culture to assimilate into a civilized society.

And , NO, I will not lower my way of life to resemble black thugs.

No hope. Forget them. Ignore them. Move onto something positive.
To do otherwise is a proven waste of time.
