School Closing Opponents
Call Mayor A Racist Liar

CBS Chicago, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:AltaD, 3/22/2013 1:22:46 PM

The Chicago Public Schools’ plan to close 53 schools and 61 buildings, mostly in black neighborhoods, has some West Side residents vowing to fight the Emanuel administration until the end. As WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports, to hear some tell it on the West Side, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is a racist liar who doesn’t care about the kids. And they’re just getting started. “I don’t see any Caucasians being moved, bussed, or murdered in the streets as they travel along gang lines, or stand on the steps of a CPS school,” said activist Wendy Matil Pearson as opponents

Sends the notice about the school closing the day Spring Break begins and he is on a ski trip.

They will complain, riot, loot and burn.

But then, come the next election, they will vote for him again, because he has a ´´D´´ after his name.

Isn´t it amazing - - that everyone in the world is a racist - -

- - except people with brown skin?

Nope - - no racism there. They judge people only by the content of their character.

This community is ripe for the picking.

If just a few people with kind and brave hearts stepped in, worked hard and really made a difference in these schools they could wins some hearts and minds for a generation.

I would venture to guess that the reason the schools being closed are in predominantly black neighborhoods has more to do with property tax receipts than with the race of those who attend those schools.

Chicago’s a mess. While the parents protest outside the school, kids yell from the windows... so what’re the teachers doing while the kids are yelling?

When the tax base is declining, enrollment is declining and the only thing going up is teacher compensation, this is what you get, no matter if a Democrat machine is running the town or not.

At least the school board is offering a solution. Critics are calling names. Many of the people are worried about kids now having to go into different neighborhoods controlled by hostile gangs. How backwards is that? Gangs are winning?

It is far cheaper to move a teacher than it is to operate a 20-40% capacity school with utilities, etc.

The schools being closed are half empty, besides they are failing to teach. No Child Left Behind was supposed to close failing schools after a few years. I did see one mother interviewed who supported her kids being bussed to a better school where they might learn. I would guess unions are the cause of all the protests, if the parents undertood the facts they would want the best for their kids just like every parent.

I do not like #8´s racist comment. It has NO place on this forum. Yes, there is a terrible problem in the black community. But the truth is that most of it was created by the Democrats.

And by the way, I was going to say that the Mayor is a Democrat, what else would he be than an "racist liar"??

it is terrible what these families have to live in. they need to clean up their culture, and can begin by insisting that black fathers be black dads.

my neighborhood is full of dads, and a gang would last about two minutes before every dad would be out in the streets kicking their butts.

What I find ironic and funny is that everyone here is yelling that elections have consequences and that these people will all vote for the same guy again because he has a "D" after his name. Why is that funny? Because we all do the same darn thing! We keep voting for the same stupid RINOs and the same stupid inept professional politicians because they have an "R" after their name and often just because they are an "incumbent". We do the same stupid behavior!! When are we going to stop voting for the Grahams, McCains, Boehners, Bushes, etc.?? Yes, we made a few changes in 2010, but not enough. Of course, it doesn´t help when the competition (J.D. Hayworth) is a worse devil than the one we want to replace... We need to vet our candidates better and then vote for someone OTHER than "incumbent".

Enjoyable to watch Rahm Emanuel being called a racist liar for his incompetence and criminal DemocRAT behavior. After all, didn´t Rahm tell the Black Gangs to just stop it? DemocRAT mayors always run a city into the ground. But sadly, like others have said, the Lo-Fo voters would quickly put him right back into office, even a racist White Guy, because he has a "D" after his name. The voters are mentally ill.

Bill Minutaglio leafed through the pages of the Village Voice newspaper. A New Yorker living and working in Dallas, Texas, Minutaglio loved to catch up with the minutiae of his old home town, and as a staffer on the Dallas Morning News’s Sunday magazine, he was always on the lookout for stories that might resonate with his readers. That morning there was one: the Voice contained a piece about so-called “buyers clubs”.(Snip)Steven Pounders, who was Woodroof’s doctor from 1989 until he died in 1992, says: “I never thought of him as straight in the least.

Mayor wants to impose regulations

Mayor Rahm Emanuel will move Wednesday to fill a “regulatory vacuum” that has given ride-sharing companies an unfair advantage over taxicabs, with no safeguards to protect consumers. The 20-page ordinance, expected to be introduced at a City Council meeting, would license ride-sharing companies as “transportation network providers” and require them to pay an annual, $25,000 fee, plus $25 per driver. UberX, Lyft, SideCar and other ride-sharing companies that allow drivers to offer rides in their personal vehicles to passengers who order them on their smartphones also would be required to pay the city’s $3.50 a day per vehicle ground transportation

Illinois rolled out its new, information-chocked school report card recently and provided an easy-to-understand figure of how many Illinois high school graduates are ready to go to college. Brace yourself: It´s only 46 percent. That, the state says, pegs how students have a reasonable chance at college success, based on their ACT scores. You don´t need to have nailed a perfect 36 on the ACT to know that means a little more than half of high school grads aren´t ready to do college-level work. Brace yourself again: Even that may be optimistic. By the ACT´s own calculations, only one-fourth of Illinois students are prepared

Apparently there´s no stopping a driver determined to run in a hit-and-run. A video circulating online depicts a cab driver trying to stop a black SUV from leaving the 1400 block of West Belmont after it rear-ended him. But the SUV driver was determined to leave. The cabbie jumped in front of the SUV, motioned for other cars to block the SUV and even started beating at the SUV´s driver-side window. But the SUV backed up and sped west — ultimately crashing into four other cars and leaving glass from broken headlights on the street in its attempt to run,

But Morton Grove Park District Commissioner Dan Ashta´s symbolic actions have spurred an ideological tug of war with a local veterans group, which recently halted cash donations to the Park District until its entire board stands for the pledge at park board meetings. "Every veteran has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and has been willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for all of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans," said Joseph Lampert, 47, commander of American Legion

A man from Arkansas died from gunshot wounds after he was dropped off at a Near West Side hospital by a cousin early Thursday morning, authorities said.

The robber fired into the car while getting out and hit Franklin in the back at least four times, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner´s office. The cousin drove Franklin to Stroger Hospital about 3:45 a.m.

A change in Medicare reimbursements is resulting in neighborhood medical supply stores shutting and, say those opposed to the change, making it harder for people to obtain wheelchairs, walkers, canes and oxygen equipment. Karen Walaszek is shutting her Master Medical Supplies at 1821 W. Chicago Ave. in Ukrainian Village after 30 years, saying the reimbursement change has "forced [me] into a corner."

Walaszek has posted an impassioned letter to customers on her

Retired city workers are asking a judge to block Mayor Emanuel from making them rely on Obamacare for their health insurance. It could cost Chicago taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. This affects most city retirees and it underscores how, after decades of grotesque financial mismanagement, the only choices left are painful ones.(Snip) When Mayor Emanuel sent letters announcing the change last month to about 24,000 retired city workers, the watchdog Civic Federation praised the move, saying it could eventually save taxpayers $70 million or more each year.

Chicago Public Schools officials revealed Tuesday that only 52.5 percent of the district´s elementary students met or exceeded state academic standards in the last school year. That´s a nearly 22-percentage-point plunge from a year earlier. Students didn´t suddenly get less intelligent. They were not doing as well in the past as everyone was led to believe. The state had dumbed down the tests and lowered cut scores to avoid sanctions from the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Educators fed parents an illusion that the vast majority of Illinois elementary students

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, is also heir to the sort of mush-headed liberalism that permeates high society on both sides of the Atlantic. Accordingly, he has thrown his lot in with the warmists (snip)Recently His Royal Highness committed a major faux pas by injecting himself into the political debate, and he has been called out by the one man with the intellectual AND social standing to do so.

Asked by host Gregg Jarrett to address the president’s declining to label Benghazi an “an act of terror” immediately following the siege, Williams responded that “At this point, it’s a political football… that I think people are keeping alike to hector Hillary Clinton.” Later on, Jarrett asked whether it was “undignified” and “embarrassing” of the president, during his pre-Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly, to “blame the the Fox News Channel for the Benghazi

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony.
