The Root.com Interviews Chicago Democrat Danny Davis: Is Black Chicago Slipping Away?
THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT DANNY DAVIS!!! As a politician he is going to say anything that is necessary to defend his record and obfuscation the issue upon some other force.
A (real) JOURNALIST has a different mission.
When a ring of journalists are seen "sticking the microphone in the face of a favorable politician" not only to retain evidence of the words but to help the reporter to perfectly transcribe it for later marketing to the masses - then we don't have a JOURNALIST. We have an echo chamber.
How many bullet points that were listed by Davis run contrary to the popular strategic talking points that the "Black Racial Services Machine" are now popularly advocating as strategic importance to our community?
But when "The Root" did get an opportunity to "talk" in the article we must note what they did say:
In fact, shouldn't shared issues like low socioeconomic status, unequal rates of incarceration, police brutality and other inequalities be the basis for political alliances versus competition? The numbers are what they are, but we think they call for a nuanced conversation about how both communities can do better -- not just singing the blues.
- Chicago is a "Mission Accomplished City" - able to field whatever economic policies they choose
- Chicago has an array of "Favorable Officials" at every run of the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice System - yet the Cook County jail is full of:
- Black Inmates
- Black Prison Guards employed to watch them
- The Present Police Chief of Chicago previously reported to a Black man in Newark and now works for a White man who received 50%+1 of the Black vote in a recent open election
With Attorney General Eric Holder in office and the Obama Administration knowledgeable of every community in greater Chicago - Danny Davis will have no problem at all expanding his district to ensnare Black people where ever they may seek to abscond to in the metro area.
