Charles, my wife and I see you on Fox regularly, and we know you are an intelligent man who has worked hard to get where you are. You are the type of a person young blacks should idolize instead of people in sports. Many blacks are their own worst enemy. They are taught that all their problems are because of their race. An education and plain old hard work will reap rewards. I am retired with a modest retirement income because of the Lord and a lot of hard work. I don’t blame anyone else because I don’t have as much as others do. I made many bad decisions while a young person. Blacks commit 7-1 more murders than whites do. They commit more rapes, more robberies, and a large number are involved with drugs. Who is to blame?

Dear Mr. Obama,

This week Hadiya Pendleton was shot and murdered in Chicago just days after performing with high school marching band at your second inauguration.

She was a majorette in addition to playing volleyball and being an honor student at King College Prep High School.

My plea to you is you attend her funeral.

My plea is that after the funeral you address the entire nation in prime time and discuss an epidemic that's eroding our nation and destroying millions of dreams.

That is the real epidemic of violence in black communities

There is no better example than your hometown of Chicago or Chi-Raq as many locals have begun to call...
