Yes I do see enough stories to assume negative things about other nationalities. Chicago has always been notorious for the graft and corruption among the Irish and the Italians and the Polish. Chicago is where there are more black TV anchors than white ones, where the Bears' coach is black, where the Chicago Cubs coach is black, where the White Sox GM is black, where the school superintendent is half black, where the Cook County board chairman is black, where Oprah Winfrey reigns supreme, where Barak Obama's career was launched, where the fire Commissioner is black and the recently-retired Poice superintendant was black, and where most of the surnames appearing in negative news stories are Hispanic because they now outnumber blacks in Chicago. Yes, Chicago is still racist but it prefer to keep this fact out of the news and as a result blacks are not disproportionately depicted as rapists and crooks in the media. And we're not talking about how many prisons are being built. We're talking about how blacks are portrayed in the Chicago media. And I never said YOU put Zora and Toni on a pedestal because my post was directed to Kola.
