Do Black Lives Really Matter To Mayor Lori Lightfoot As Chicago Sees This Insane Surge In Gun Violence?

(Tea Party 247) – The United States is falling apart at the seams. The Democrats have been working tirelessly to undermine President Trump, China has found a way to completely destroy our economy (with the help of the left), and now a full-blown race war seems inevitable. Those are only the tip of the iceberg.

Underneath all of that are hurting communities all across the country. The livelihoods of millions of Americans have been upended, businesses everywhere have been forced to closed, and people are just unsure of what the future holds. In major cities gun violence is surging but Democratic leaders, like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, are more concerned with pledging support for the radical political group Black Lives Matter than actually saving black lives.

In Chicago alone gun violence is up 76% from last year. That is a remarkable increase.

NBC News did a report on the violence that is plaguing American cities:

Over 1,500 people have been shot in Chicago, almost 900 in Philadelphia, and more than 500 in New York City so far in 2020 — all up significantly from the same time last year (1,018 in Chicago, 701 in Philadelphia and 355 in New York).

The surge in shootings has been particularly painful for communities of color, which have disproportionately endured the weight of the COVID-19 crisis, the economic recession and social unrest following the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in May.

In Chicago, where minority communities have long struggled with deadly gun violence, shootings have increased 76 percent from the same time last year, with nearly all the bloodshed concentrated in the city’s predominantly Black and brown communities on the South and West Sides.

Among the victims was a 7-year-old girl, Natalia Wallace, who was fatally shot at a family gathering over the Fourth of July weekend on the West Side.

While a rise in shootings is common during warm months, this year has been much more complex, said Christopher Herrmann, a former crime analyst supervisor with the NYPD and professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

“There is a multiplication factor happening right now. Not only is it summertime violence, but there is COVID-19, police protests and job loss,” he said. “All of those factors are going to exacerbate violence, especially in communities that were already vulnerable.”

Predominantly Black neighborhoods in recent decades have averaged five times as many violent crimes as predominantly white communities, according to a 2016 study by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In Chicago, 79 people were shot over 4th of July weekend alone but apparently this is all white people’s fault? Crime is less in white neighborhoods than in black neighborhoods because…racism?

Who does this actually make any sense to? Obviously, Mayor Lightfoot is of the belief that increased gun violence is because of white people oppressing black people as evidenced by her support of Black Lives Matter.

Perhaps if Lightfoot cared about those within these hurting communities she would be less focused on politics and more focused on figuring out how to make things better and reduce gun violence. Instead, let’s just blame white folks.

  3. Sigh – once again There Is No Such Thing As “gun violence” – guns are tools – they cannot act on their own – the people that misuse them (they are NOT ‘human beings’) are solely and totally responsible for that misuse. It matters not one whit how a person is murdered, they are still DEAD. And apparently da mayor in shykago is waaaaay more ‘interested’ in blaming an inanimate object rather than the CRIMINALS that commit the murders.

  4. It is sad and very hypocritical to say black life Matters when one gets kill by a police officer but it’s ok when it’s black on black killing. This is when you defund the police and take away their abilities to fight crime, the gang leaders and members are emboldened because no one is coming to save or protect you not even your member of congress. I feel sad for these communities who are in fear for their lives and their families.

  5. My roomate’s sister makes $71 hourly on the laptop. She has been unemployed for 9 months but last month her paycheck was $15722 just working on the laptop for a few hours.

  6. My roommates sister makes 300 dollars an hour by working from home! SHES a WHORE for money just like the rest of you clowns spreading leftist propaganda to stay at home and not go back to work!! Enough of the BS on line money making scams!!!

  7. Comments so far have all been about making too dollars ar work which is tragically sad following such a report that is worse tha the deaths experienced in war zones like Afghanistan by American warriors this year. Citizens who care no more about such deaths in our country are subject to Biblical truths such as “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Perhaps it’s time for citizens in such cities of crime to do as those in Norman, Oklahoma $ begin petitions to dismiss the mayors for lack of leadership. God bless you to be unafraid to confront evil because “if God be for you, who can be against you.

  8. Simple way to tell if black lives matter, have the officials met with the people to discuss how to prevent crime in their areas? Have they tried to work with the areas effected by the high murder rates to prevent them? And where has the BLM been during all this? Why have they not ambushed the gang members doing the killings? Seems the truth is that talk walks and actions prove you care. So far all it’s been is BS talk with no actions.

  9. The Marxist ideology of BLM matters very much to Lightfoot. The lives of her black constituents? She couldn’t give a damn.

  10. Jesus warned us of the characteristics of the last days that would fall upon us. He warned Us of commotions, hypocrisy, rumors of wars, and afflictions, plagues, Heady and high minded people, scoffers, people walking after their own lusts, evil people, surmising thoughts of harm, hurt, and death.God help us and would to God that those who fall in these categories would repent. Jesus is our only hope and direction in this life, so let’s be on our way and follow Jesus.

  11. Mayor Lori Lightfoot is a right wing conservative compared to our State Attorney, Kim Foxx. She just refuses to charge anyone of color with a crime. (See Jesse Smollet). Campaign donation from George Soros too.

  12. I am making a good salary from home $1200-$2000/week , which is amazing, under a year back I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyoneinfo↓↓↓↓

  13. One has to remember that in the Democratic-communist Party, Mayor’s are selected by loyalty and not for competency and we can see this in her insane actions, which tells us that those who gave her power, they are just as insane.

  14. Black lives do not seem to matter to anyone in Chicago. With the black-on-black murder rate in Chicago and other majority black cities like Baltimore and Detroit, it seems to me this whole BLM fiasco is a “feel good” diversion tactic supported by the Anti-Americans, Liberals and blacks themselves. The fact that NO black, NO Democrat, and NO Mainstream Media organization mentions this tell me NO ONE in power gives a crap about black lives- except at the ballot box. We have no wall. Blacks can go to any country in the world for better treatment. Truth is that there is none.

    • Everyone should ask the Question, Where are the Millions that BLM is getting from the Corrupt Big Tech Google,Facebook, Twitter and Big Business going? Whose getting that money?
      Sure isn’t the Black community.. BLM, FAKE!!!!

  15. I have never found anything particularly “civil” about a so-called “civil” war. If the all-inclusive Left (Antifa, BLM, the Deep State, MSM, Communists, Socialists, Anarchists, WHATEVER) want another “civil” war, then BRING IT ON, GODDAMN IT! American patriots everywhere (Minutemen, militia, and American Nationalists will be more than delighted to give your ungrateful heathen asses a warm “reception.”

  16. When the democrats running these cities that have high black on black killings, shootings and crimes and does nothing about it….NO BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER.
    When the democrats in Washington see this and does nothing about it also….NO BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER. When the democrats in washington see how horrible the public school system is in the inner cities and vote against Charter Schools just for the teachers union’s vote….NO BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER
    WAKE UP BLACK AMERICA

  17. All these black on black murders and shootings in our cities, why aren’t BLM and black political leaders working to to stop it. Whites and police aren’t doing it. If black lives matter then why don’t those lives matter. Isn’t there being sent a mixed message when BLM supports abortion which takes out thousands of black lives every year while screaming black lives matter.Why are BLM and Antifa destroying Black neighborhoods and businesses and threatening the owners not to reopen. This causing the loss of many jobs making impossible for black people to make a living.Does this show black lives matter. Until these things are addressed, Black Lives matter are nothing more than meaningless words.

    • Obummer put up with the Black on Black Murder in Chicago for EIGHT years. His buddy emmanueal was a FAKE.

  18. Why is it all the people commiting on this sight is trying to run a bullsh-t money hussle which has nothing to do with the information on this page. If you butt-heads were really able to make all this money, you sure as hell wouldn’t be putting this garbage on here to suck money out of the people reading, you get money from each person you sucker, what do they get NOTHING !!!!!

  19. Even though Lightfoot walked into another of the many Dem Failure cities she has only made it worse. When are people going to realize that Dems have their own agendas and it does not include helping the people of the cities they run. Lightfoot is just another Dem failure on the list of many who can only point blame at others and does nothing to fix the problems. If voters of these cities are happy with the high crime, murders, shooting and watching their cities crumble around them then keep voting Dem. Just stop crying when your kids keep getting shot every week.

  20. ALL LIVES MATER NO MATTER WHAT YOUR RACE. PLUS WE ARE ALL AMERICAN’S BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE UNLESS YOUR NOT A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES.

  21. Politicians, large corporations, celebrities, black leaders (Obama – why are you not denouncing the violence????), and the MSM all are falling over themselves to support the BLM movement which is the most racist movement in history yet nobody has the guts to say it. If saying “All Lives Matter” is considered racist – we must examine the core beliefs of the BLM. They don’t care about black on black crime, they don’t care about black employment, they don’t care about black-owned businesses, they don’t care about black communities. The only thing that they care about is taking down the USA and replacing it with their black supremacy Marxist tyrants to rule with fear and death (see Seattle’s CHAZ/CHOP as a prime example). The young adults that have been indoctrinated in public schools and universities follow along like little puppies not realizing that they are being let to the slaughter and will go willingly.

    We must stand up against these enemies/criminals

    • You are so correct. I am sick of the news and the demoncRATS calling them protesters, they are domestic terrorist and should be treated as such.

  22. Too many inane comments about earnings for me to add another inane comment about the future of this country if BLM is allowed to be the guide for black citizens.

  23. Hey tea party, can’t you do something about all of these work from home advertisements, and does anyone visiting your pod cast even contact these folks, or are they paying you money to post and waste space, and turn off the ones who want to comment

  24. Nice comments?? All comments are about making $$ and nothing to do with the increase in violence? You folks are on the wrong subject and on the wrong forum.

  25. Antifa and BLM do not believe that any life matter, proof they have willfully murder blacks well as all other races.
    These groups are not protestors.
    They are RABID DOGS OF TERRORISM
