Chicago School Closings. Evil thrives in the crevices of created by opportunism and indifference. No better example exists than of the disastrous decision made to close 50 schools in Chicago the vast majority of them serving African American children. The greatest impact is on the city's most wounded neighborhoods, places already traumatized by violence. The last thing they need is further destabilization by closing stable community institutions and making children leave places they are comfortable and teacher mentors they have developed relationships with. Make no mistake about this, this is both a local and a national tragedy. You cannot blame this on the Republican Party. Or the NRA. Or the Tea Party. This is an example of a poisonous cynicism that thrives in the heart of the Barack Obama Democratic party and its liberal, once radical apologists. Let us see if Michael Eric Dyson, Angela Davis, Michael Moore, Rachel Maddow etc say a peep about this. It will take open revolt, non-violent or otherwise, to turn this train around. And it will come. Probably when people least expect it. Those who defy the laws of history and morality usually get payback.
