    As a Canadian I get a lot of my news about the US from CNN. What's the deal with non-stop coverage about yet another student death in Chicago? Because they have video? The more information that comes out, the more every group involved in that community looks bad.
    As an aside; how is that neighbourhood protest against murders doing in Philly?

    I love the way the media describes the blacks... as "a student" or "Chicago youth".

    Right.

    Anyone who knows blacks knows they ain't no fucking "students".

    But of course. Half the blacks in the inner city are "honor students" and bound for Harvard. Every time a black teenager is killed, they are mourned as "a good kid" who sang at church and would have gone on to be an engineer. The killers are always described the same way.

    I tell ya, what is going on here? All these black honor students, killing and dying in the streets. What a shame.

    I read somewhere that the dead kid got his honors status for being at school 90+% of the time. So if you skip class less than once every two weeks you're considered an honor student. I cant vouch for the truth in that, just sayin'.

    It just seemed odd that a large fraction of the news cycle was devoted to this story. Its not like there wasnt hundreds of other students killed in Chicago this decade.

    I'm sure Obama being from Chicago had something to do with it as well.
