CHICAGO - As we and CBS Chicago reported, seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the Democrat-controlled Windy City since Friday evening. And according to New York's Fox 5, "Fifteen people were shot in a rash of violence in another Democrat stronghold: New York City. The violence left two people dead and 13 others injured within a span of just 8 hours.
However, as Patriot Post observed, because most of these shootings consist of blacks shooting fellow blacks as a result of poverty plantations fostered by statism, civil rights "leaders" like Al Sharpton and Chicago-based Jesse Jackson remain deafeningly silent on the issue.
It's simply astounding that Gov. Jay Nixon deployed the National Guard to quell the violence in Ferguson as the result of a shooting involving a white cop and a black teenager -- a case that's still under investigation -- yet the violence bloodying the streets of Chicago and New York City continues unabated and ignored.
