Yeah, I agree. It could be both.

Rahm Emanuel is entering a phase where he's being forced to admit that the same CONSERVATIVE family principles he applied when raising his children successfully, should be applied to ALL families.


Yeah, this is one of the things that is funny about liberals. They try to justify behavior and dysfunction they don't allow in their own homes.

Funny thing? Is America had moral values at one time. Bit then in the interest of "freedom", shot it down.
But not even Democrats ruined the morals. But these "liberal", "progressive" thinkers, that somehow got into a position of "authority".
Doesn't matter what color your skin. It does however matter is your "ideology" and "morals". And it matters how the left keeps harping on nonexistent "racist hate" to keep their voting block.

O'l Ron is dealing with his own created environment. "Morals" require, "social standards". That's not something the Libs have been "onboard" with for the last fourty years. It'll only get worse. Because they refuse to call evil, evil.

Yes, it is lack of morals. The culture of the community is completely broken and dysfunctional. It is largely brought on the by the epidemic of single mothers. Liberalism and the war on poverty destroyed the black family over the last 50 years and this is the result.


How do you reverse "lack of morals"? That is such a root personality trait.

If there weren't so many innocent people (commuters, tourists) shot while merely driving/riding down the city expressways, there wouldn't be such an uproar at this time.

You don’t unless a leader comes along and unites the inner cities.most of these guys get off on street Cred and saying f it to traditional values. You’re “acting white” if you get good grades and pay attention in school. The whole system is broken beyond repair at this point.

By enforcing "standards". It has nothing to do with personality traits.
Ron E. could start by reaffirming the Idea that work = food and stuff. Men that think they are women, have mental issues and it doesn't meet "social standards".
Ron's dealing with some screwed up sh** his own "morals" brought upon himself.

“On either side of a potentially violent conflict, an opportunity exists to exercise compassion and diminish fear based on recognition of each other's humanity. Without such recognition, fear fueled by uninformed assumptions, cultural prejudice, desperation to meet basic human needs, or the panicked uncertainty of the moment explodes into violence.”

We have to call out the dysfunctional behavior and stop justifying and excusing it. It will take at least a generation to correct.

Imagine the firestorm if Donald Trump were to say that violent Black and Hispanic Chicago neighborhoods lack Values and Morals!


Rahm Emanuel didn't say that though. He didn't say *anything* about race. He didn't refer to neighborhoods as "violent." His language was actually both racially neutral and inclusive:

"We also have a responsibility to help nurture character. It plays a role. Our kids need that moral structure in their lives."

And technically, he didn't say that there was a lack of either morals or values, though it could be reasonably implied. That said, his comments are off base, he's wrong and he sounds like a dip# Republican. Wherever you look, economically depressed communities have more crime, including violent crime, than other communities. The common denominator isn't a lack of morals, it's a lack of wealth and opportunity.

I don't know why you'd commit an unforced error like bringing Trump into the discussion.

As a teenager (mid 1970's) I was a guest gang member in one Chicago neighborhood. We'd have silly turf fights, but there were no guns involved.

The common denominator is young black males raised in single mother households. If poverty and lack of opportunity were the cause the the crime rate in the black community would have been much higher prior to the 1970s...

If poverty were the cause then you'd have a virtual war zone in Appalachia.

It is purely a cultural issue born out of the war on poverty which pushed black men out of the home in order to get govie benefits. In addition, what also happened is that as integration occured middle and upper class blacks moved out of the communities leaving a void in quality role models.

There are POOR White areas of Chicago. They are nowhere near as violent.

You call Republicans "Dip#s", while lambasting me for mentioning Donald Trump in my O.P.?

Oh well..I guess Freedom of Speech can work for both of us.

Or right versus wrong?
Politics and religion, or lack thereof, are what war has always been about. Then throw gold and silver in?
Ron E. Is dealing with his liberal utopia that he thought he could "fix" or create.
He failed and is failing do to the lack of morals and social standard. Kind of ignorant of him to think he could please all his "subjects" with a smooth tongue.
