    So I'm right across from Wrigley Field here in Chicago. The neighborhood is filled with bars. So much screaming from too many drunks. Yet, I walked around the block and the only black people I see are in handcuffs. Some are being loaded into paddy wagons. In fact, I don't see a single white person arrested. Not even the white guy who kicked the car as it drove by. He was right in front of two police officers. One of them told him to be careful.

    For all the Cubs games I've attended, I don't recall seeing any blacks at the ballpark.
    Maybe there's a connection.

    You had free seats to the games, and yet you still complain.

    Growing up on the South Side I remember the song, "Move the patrol wagon closer sergeant, the steps to high for me mudder."
