While thugs were busy looting, burning down buildings and tossing Molotov cocktails in Ferguson over the week during the two day curfew, there was another area of the country where blacks were getting shot and injuried. That of course would be Chicago, where 7 people were shot and killed, and 29 people were injured. Yet there is no big national black outrage over these 7 dead or 29 injured. No marches on their behalf. No meeting in the White House by Obama and Eric Holder to discuss the Chicago slaughter. While some local Chicago media covered the shootings, the national media is yet again out to lunch. You don’t have any leftist reporters on the ground in Chicago confusing ear plugs with rubber bullets.
