    Chicago, the New Capital of Segregation

    10/2/12
    By Michael Bargo Jr.


    Chicago has long been known as the oldest and most powerful politicali machine in the U.S. What is not so well-known is that "Daley's modern Chicago was built ... on an unstated foundation: commitment to racial segregation"ii. In 1959 the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights called Chicago "the most residentially segregated large city in America"iii.

    To this day, the majority of Chicago's African-Americans live in the same areas they have occupied for the past 100 years. Ethnic maps from 1920iv and 2000 support this point. In 2000, 35 years after passage of the Civil Rights and Fair Housing Acts, it was found that for the city to be integrated in housing and education, 90% of the black residents would have to movev.

    James Q. Wilson noted that Chicago has a black submachine, a political entity that could not exist without the larger white-controlled political machinevi. The two largest black population areas now make up the two black congressional districts. They are represented by African-American Congressmen Jesse Jackson, Jr. and Bobby Rush. Jackson's district is 67% black, Rush's 64%. It is this machine structure that made the original black segregation possible and is now used to create the Hispanic submachine.

    Paul Krugman Links Sprawl to Persistent Social Inequality

    by Tanya Snyder

    Is sprawl holding back social mobility in America? Paul Krugman didn’t mince words yesterday in a follow-up to a post he wrote soon after the Detroit bankruptcy was announced. In that initial blog post, he compared Detroit to Pittsburgh and concluded that it wasn’t just the loss of manufacturing jobs that hurt Detroit — it was also the dispersement of jobs away from the city core. Yesterday, in a column titled “Stranded by Sprawl,” he took the argument further, arguing, “Sprawl may be killing Horatio Alger.”

    Take Atlanta, says Krugman. Though its population is on the rise, a study released last week shows that Atlanta is one of the worst places in the country for social mobility: The chances that a kid born in the bottom fifth of the income ladder could move to the top fifth are one in 25.

    Krugman writes that researchers have found “a significant negative correlation between residential segregation — different social classes living far apart — and the ability of the poor to rise.” He elaborates:

    Maybe it is the black mans fault? How about building up a economy and raise your children to be good people????

    People that other people want to be around. STOP THE KILLING would be a good start.

    It's like those KKK Democrats are murdering and disarming and segregating blacks all over again.

    What is is, 60% of blacks aborted? Most disarmed? And generally all segregated from white communities?

    Those Progressives have done a swell job! One in six black men go to jail in their lifetime!

    Why does everyone blame the white man for this?

    1. 60% of blacks are aborted as black fathers don't care and the woman doesn't want to raise the child.
    2.Disarmed??? You kidding right? They're the only ones that are armed.
    3. Maybe blacks would rather live with other blacks??? Ever thought of that?
