black futures

If you have been watching the news, you’ve seen hundreds of protesters pour into the streets to demand the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel for covering up the killing of Laquan McDonald by a police officer.

Apparently, they are not that concerned about Emanuel, they want all the police fired with the money to go to ‘fund black futures’.

They’re already suffering through untold violence in certain precincts in Chicago and it’s hard to imagine how they will have any future without police.

MSNBC’S PETER ALEXANDER: “So we see the outrage, the anger when it comes to mayor Emanuel. Is seeing him out of office the main goal or is there more that you are really striving for as a priority right now?”

CHICAGO ACTIVIST, BREANNA CHAMPION: “No, so getting Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign is definitely not the main goal of the movement right now. So in Chicago, police receive 40% of our city’s budget to remain operational. That is completely unheard of and unacceptable. One of our major demands is that police be defunded and that that money used to fund police be used to fund black futures and be used to fund our communities.”

  1. And she’s right. The Chicago PD is beyond saving. They aren’t the protectors of the populations, they’re it’s masters. While some investigators would have to be hired, there’s no reason why a city needs a patrolling quasi-army. If there’s a crime, hire investigators, but the CPD is so corrupt you can’t for a second trust they will obey, let alone enforce, the law.

  2. oh my word!!!!!! it is the way you are approaching this whole issue that sets it up for failure, God says all lives matter. follow that and ya might get somewhere. reverse discrimination is all this is. so many good people marched against the inequality and now one. only to have the roles reversed not fixed. I am White and proud, no I am not KKK or A Arian. just proud of what god gave me. let the black drop change it to life matters and see how much support you get from folks like myself.

  3. Ha ha ha. The city collects taxes from the workers and businesses and wastes it in the schools, collecting garbage, keeping streets clean and patrolling the streets to try and keep them safe. This year’s budget deficit of 78 billion with a b dollars is being plugged by a massive properly tax hike. How much do you think the city collects in properly taxes on government subsidized section 8 housing? I’m opposed to dumping another cent on neighborhoods that refuse to join the rest of us. Struggling to keep the city afloat.

  4. This story is hysterical! I hope they can convince them to do it. Only thing…please build a big freakin’ wall around that $hit box and install plenty of cameras and set up pay per view. That way everyone else is safe and entertained watching these idiots carry out their carnage.
