BLOODY WEEKEND: 55 Shot in Chicago As “Black Men in Big Cities” Face Relentless Gun Violence
10 shot dead, another 45 left wounded – including 2 police officers.
That’s how many people were shot in Chicago from 5 PM Friday to 5 AM Monday — a mere 50 hours to be exact.
Unfortunately, these types of “bloody weekends” are now the norm in Chicago.
In fact, according to data published by the Chicago Tribune, 497 people have been killed in Chicago as of August 30 — 145 more than all of 2019.
And of those 497 victims of homicide, the majority of them are young, black men.
But it’s not just Chicago where black homicide is skyrocketing.
It’s also taking place in several other Democrat-run cities across the country.
In New York City, nearly 50 people were shot this past weekend — 5 fatally — including a young mother of 3.
And in St. Louis, 2 black police officers were shot.

Given the staggering, and ever-increasing number of black homicides in places like Chicago and New York City, along with the fact that 1,000 African Americans were murdered last year as a result of violent crime in just four Democrat-run cities, shouldn’t the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement be demanding new leadership in these places at the local level?
Of course they should.
But it wouldn’t advance their left-wing, Marxist agenda.
So BLM, along with their pals in the liberal media, remain silent as the number of black homicide victims continue to skyrocket in Democrat-run cities across America.
And when they do choose to speak out, they usually blame President Trump, Republicans . . . and those dang ole people from Mississippi.
