Chicago was home to the Chicago Defender, the country’s leading black newspaper, with a wide readership in the rural South. Robert S. Abbott, the Defender’s publisher, a small, round, well-dressed man who artfully combined the roles of race crusader and businessman, launched what he called "The Great Northern Drive" on May 15, 1917. The object of the drive was to exhort Southern blacks to come to Chicago, in order to make money and live under the legal benefits of citizenship. Abbott invented slogans ("The Flight Out of Egypt") and promoted songs ("Bound for the Promised Land," "Going Into Canaan") that pounded home a comparison to the events described in the Book of Exodus for his audience of extremely religious children of slaves.
Lothrop Stoddard was right, folks. Chicago violence in 2016 was almost entirely because of non-whites
He persuaded the railroads to offer "club rates" to groups of blacks migrating to Chicago. At the same time strong-back businesses like the stockyards and packing houses, desperately short of labor because of the war, hired white labor agents and black preachers to tour the South recruiting. Black porters on the Illinois Central, who at the time were a prosperous, respected elite in black America, spread the word (and passed out the Defender) on their stops in Mississippi towns. E. Franklin Frazier, the black sociologist, reported that, "In some cases, after the train crossed the Ohio River, the migrants signalized the event by kissing the ground and holding prayer services."
The black population of Chicago grew from 44,000 in 1910 to 109,000 in 1920, and then to 234,000 in 1930. A local commission on race relations reported that 50,000 black people had moved to Chicago from the South in eighteen months during the war. --Did you see it?
I'll make it easy for you. As black migrants from the South entered the northern portion of the United States, they rejoiced at the their new found freedom:
"In some cases, after the train crossed the Ohio River, the migrants signalized the event by kissing the ground and holding prayer services."Blacks kissed the ground and held prayer services after they were liberated from the chains of Jim Crow and the white supremacist culture of the South.
What happened less than 80 years in Chicago, courtesy of the descendants of these liberated blacks? Everything Jim Crow existed to prevent... [Mitchell: Our city, one year, 780 murders, Chicago Sun-Times, 12-31-16]:
They were murdered on one of the most sacred days on the Christian calendar.
Two of the victims were brothers: James Gill, 18, and Roy Gill III, 21.
Jerry Thomas, 22; Fabian Ortega, 18; and Niko L. Walker, 21, also were killed in various parts of the city on Christmas Day.
The Gills were gunned down on a porch in Chatham. The other victims were killed in West Humboldt Park, Gage Park and South Shore, in the shadows of hard-working people trying to raise families.
In the waning days of 2016, the fallen fit the profile of the city’s murdered. They were young, male, black and Hispanic.
To many, the faces staring out from the collage of victims murdered in 2016 have no connection to them.Yes, these faces have absolutely no connection to western civilization, which is why white people long ago passed laws to protect their posterity from the consequences of freedom/integration for these individuals.
Chicago is now headed toward Detroit-status because of liberated blacks whose ancestors long ago kissed the ground and prayed once they crossed the Ohio River...
