How terrible. 🙁
What happened to #BlackLivesMatter? Where is race hustler Al Sharpton? Where is Michelle “Michael” Obama? Where is Barack Soetoro Obama? Don’t they care about black lives? /sarc


How did that city become such a stain on America’s landscape? There are a lot of great people living there, but the crowd that likes violence ruins it for everyone else.


Maybe if we flood Chicago with some more guns the bad elements in that society will just exterminate themselves….problem solved.


So where is Al and Jesse?
