56 shot, 12 dead in Chicago's Memorial Day weekend

The carnage among black young men in Chicago escalates as the weather warms, yet no leftists or race agitators seem to care.  The police shooting of a young man in Cleveland draws demonstrations, but the ongoing large scale slaughter in Chicago goes largely unremarked among the demonstrator class or national media.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

At least 56 people were shot over Memorial Day weekend between Friday afternoon and early Tuesday morning, according to authorities. 

Twelve people, including three shot Monday afternoon, died from their wounds. Twelve others shot between late Monday morning and early Tuesday morning survived their gunshot wounds, bringing the total of non-fatal gunshot victims for the weekend to 44.

No race is mentioned for any of the victims, but based on past data, nearly all are likely to be black, for it is black neighborhoods that most shootings have been occurring.  And unlike any police-involved shootings:

No one was in custody for any of the attacks, and police were investigating.

Make no mistake: something very evil is taking place in Chicago, a city completely run by Democrats for two generations.  The evil is on a larger scale, but it is similar to what is taking place across America among young black men raised in (mostly) fatherless homes.  The rage that consumes these young males deprived of fathers is understandable, and it can be remedied only by a society and culture unafraid to condemn drive-by fatherhood and the women who make it so easy and attractive for males to behave this way.

But that is not happening, because the people within the back community who have the standing and resources to mobilize demonstrations and outrage prefer a stance of victimhood at the hands of whites, and make a handsome living from it.
