What's up with the violence?
Living elsewhere, I have only what I read to form an opinion. I see increased reporting of shootings which appear to be concentrated on the south and west sides. Presumably this is black on black crime. I see more reporting of north loop assaults by blacks. Even the relatively quiet neighborhood in which I grew up (Edgewater) seems to be plagued with crime.
Is my impression inaccurate or are thse types of crimes simply being hilighted more in the print media?
One more thing, and back to the shootings, are their any significant efforts from within the black community to change what appears to be a horrible situation? I don't see how this problem could be dealt with in any other way.
