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.
