    Historical machine/plantation politics, hacks, hyper segregated schools/neighborhoods, latent hostility, sanctuary policies, and misguided leadership all led to over 180,000 black chicagoans departing city since 2000 census. Those who left were some of the city’s most able citizens – a true capital/social lost to a great city.

    Gee. I wonder if the Dems/Libs/Progs ever gave serious strategic thought to what would happen if they actually promoted blacks to the middle class as opposed to keep them stabled in the dead-end inner city political system. I bet they did. Cue the salsa music, fade to black, roll the credits.

    “blacks who achieved a certain amount of success before the economic decline began moving to the suburbs from the city”

    What?! How can that be? I thought that suburbanization amounted to racism, yet Blacks ipso facto cannot be racists! I am sorely confused.
