45 shot, 8 murdered in Chicago. Those are the crime stats in Chicago since January 1, 2015.

Do those lives matter? Are there any protests planned? Are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton planning to meet with leaders of Chicago? Obama and Holder? Are there federal civil rights investigations begin conducted?

There were 18 killed and 38 shot in Paris. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict by the end of the moth, more will have been murdered in Chicago than in Paris, and there will be no media coverage, no protest organized at universities, no contrived slogans or hashtags, and no political leaders calling this an outrage.

Nothing.

Why? What's the difference between 45 shot in Chicago and 38 shot in Paris?

Why don't the same people who protest over Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and the victims in Paris protest the ongoing murders in Chicago?

That's different because..... why?

Because everyone is stupid and mass media is exasperating the problem.

Because it wasn't manufactured.

What problem? 45 shot in Chicago. 38 in Paris.

What problem is the media trying to exacerbate?

Well the media can't exploit these cases to divide people because there's no one to blame.

Can you clarify what you believe was manufactured? Michael Brown's death? Eric Garner's? The 18 dead in Paris?

Are you saying the 38 shot in Paris deserve media attention, and the 45 people shot in Chicago don't deserve discussion or attention?

Those blacks don't matter to them.

Those are bad blacks.

Just like Muslims don't care too much for terrorists.

If you think about it. Gang members are exactly the same as terrorists.

They shoot, kill, firebomb, decapitate people...etc..etc..

The only difference is that these terrorists have no religious affiliation.

I'll see you're prediction and raise it. I would say that by the end of the month of January, more people will have been wounded or killed in Chicago than there will be in Paris all year. And there will still be no media coverage, no protest organized at universities, no contrived slogans or hashtags, and no political leaders calling this an outrage.

How so? How is reporting 45 shot in Chicago, and 6 blacks being murdered in Chicago, creating racial "tension" in your mind?

I'm asking why those lives don't seem to matter to anybody.

Dying doesn't make news. It's who died.

They do but it's not trending.

It's not popular on Twitter it's not getting more followers or helping them make more money.

So what was special about Michael Brown dying? Or Eric Garner?

Or the 18 killed in Paris?

What is special about them?

If you don't see the difference between peer to peer crime and murder under color of authority I'm implying that you can't see many obvious things right in front of you. Maybe you can't differentiate between quantity and quality?

If you don't see the the difference between peer to peer crime and directed propaganda attack you don't have the basic tools to understand the world and it's complex issues. Maybe you are programmed with memes that invoke emotion instead of logic?

Without regard to how you ended up with your particular skill set, the question remains --why should anyone listen to you?

Because the people in Chicago weren`t shot by a white policeman or a terrorist so they don`t matter,you can`t make a splash with black on black crime because it happens everyday.
it`s like wondering why people don`t make a big deal about the sun rising everyday.

the difference is that none of those murders were committed by anyone getting a weekly pay check to uphold the law and keep the peace.

Ho-humm....just another low-life killing another low-life is probably the prevailing attitude. That's why.
