    Try anything we can think of, but human nature, being what it is, young men do whatever gets them status and attention from women. Figure a way for those young men to impress women in a different way than gang banging.

  • THE BLACK RUSH LIMBAUGH

    Corey Brooks is just trying to make a name for himself in Chicago. If he really wanted to stop the shootings, he and the other race relations poverty pimps, would be asking for the National Guards to be called in to patrol the Chicago streets. This would stop the shootings in their tracks. But that would also stop the constant free media time these race relations poverty pimps receive. This problem is a disgrace to the city and it’s citizens. But these poverty pimps are just keeping their names and photos in the press to build up themselves. All the while, the blood of our citizens is being washed down the sewers every day of the week.
