Fairly long article...

"Chicago’s Obama Presidential Center will bring a surge of investment to a long-troubled neighborhood. Why aren’t the residents celebrating?"

Is this a spur, such as related to, eminent domain in action, and will there be outrage?

Barack Obama doesn't care about black people.

Black resisting black kind of rules out racism as an argument. Nothing left besides gentrification.

Seems the argument could be valid or like Rugian said--> Obama doesn't care about increasing their hardships compared to his Presidential Legacy. It's a double edged sword.

The last I heard he wanted to build it in a park that was given to the city decades ago on condition that it remain a park without any building on it. IIRC he would need about 25% of the land for his "library".

Plus it is not close to the ghetto so it would be a hardship for those that might get some good out of visiting it.

Yep, everyone knows that ghetto residents aren't allowed outside the walls.

HR:

Reason why I questioned this being a spur of eminent domain. If rent goes up two-hundred a month the affordability could become a problem for many people. Improvements come with cost. That is a pretty good chunk for many people. You could move to a crappy neighborhood and buy a couple of guns. Hell yeah!

Tom:

Is it inside or outside? My bad!

I think it is time for me to return to my other dimension of reality.

"and buy a couple of guns."

Not in Chicago. Not legally anyway.

Some interesting data from Chicago police - 1957 through 2016. I can't argue that it isn't rising, but may not be for the reasons she states. Dahleen Glanton should have contacted the police before she embellished her agenda.

Anyway this thread isn't about gun control.
