Ah Charles, the truth is, Barack H. Obama doesn't give a damn about "blacks in America" beyond what they can do for HIM. 500 dead blacks in Chicago are mere political counters. (I know, not all the dead people in Chicago were black, just most of them.) And the problem isn't guns, because for the most part, the killers would have resorted to knives and clubs because they are interested in the violence, and control execised through it, not the smell of burnt powder. Might not have been 500 dead, but would have been 400 or more.

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...
