This is more of a comment on the break down of the black community. No fathers, growing up in poverty surrounded by ignorance. I know I know, I am a racist.

I grew up in Chicago, Rogers Park 25yrs ago in which violence was an everyday occurance. I have to comment about the segregation in Chicago that is still appalling. And I'd also like to comment about the mayors that are gangsters that keep this divide alive thruogh poverty.
