My Thoughts on Chicago School Closings

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.
