    If we let people like you revise history.......nothing whites have done historically was due to racism. Blacks, I do not believe, are not leaving the city because of gun violence. Look at the trend nationally. The suburbs have opened up to blacks. They are putting more section 8 in the suburbs. Why? Nationally whites are returning to the city. Young whites want high density wakable neighborhoods near public transportation and close to downtown. Blacks occupy that space since the 70's....so blacks have to be enticed out so that whites can move in. Its no accident that the majority of older cities experienced black population decline the last census.

    Blacks would have moved to the suburbs when whites were fleeing to the suburbs.....but realtors and lenders and sellers sought to prevent blacks moving to the suburbs. Now that there is less racism keeping blacks out the suburbs.....blacks are leaving the cities...now whites want to live in the city. Go figure.

    You know the answer, you're just too much of a coward to say it.

    All of this is the fault of Chicago's gutless officials who care more about not appearing racist than saving black lives.
    SEVERAL years ago they installed test technology in a couple problematic neighborhoods...devices that can detect the unique sounds of gunfire and accurately triangulate where it came from and lead officers to the exact spot just like you use Google maps. Officers were arriving to the scene before anyone even called the police yet. In these test areas....due to immediate response and arrest - GUN CRIME DROPPED 40%!!!!!!!!!!
    Yet Chicago officials won't install the devices in other areas..........WHY?

    No you fucking inbred mental midget! You don't know a damn thing about Chicago. Many whites fled because of racism, which is true but it was primarily because of the better and cheaper housing with more space in the burbs.

    Chicago is seeing a huge influx of whites to Chicago. Go from the South Loop all the way to Rogers park it is becoming more white. The West side was primarily Hispanic (like Hermosa and Humbolt Park) but goto Humbolt Park now a days and you see more and more white people. They might be the majority. Humbolt Park used to be a no go now you see white kids playing soccer in the park. The South side and just west of United Center were black area. That is changing. These areas are getting gentrified (which is a good thing). Within 5 yr Garfield Park and Lawndale will be white neighborhoods.

    Blacks aren't moving out because of violence. Rather they are moving because of loss of habitat. They can't afford to live there when the areas get good, property values go up, businesses bring in jobs and the neighborhoods become safe.

    Now get a clue you race baiting POS!

    Definitely true.
    Today's young adults are seeking to live in larger cities where there are better economic opportunities due to the death of manufacturing in smaller communities. As demand rises in those areas, so does rent and real estate. And as they rise, developers start investing and presto...in as little as 5-6 years whole neighborhoods change. Those that want to work for a living, and better themselves want in....those that don't...want out.
    Happening all over the country.
