At Least 8 Dead Out of 60 Shot Over Long Weekend in Chicago: Most Are Black, None Shot By Confederate Statues

From the July 5, 2017, Chicago Tribune by Peter Nickeas, Elvia Malagon and Elyssa Cherney.

Those were the headlines on page four.

"July 4 holiday violence similar to that of recent years."

"Dozens of people were struck by gunfire in Chicago, some of them fatally, during the traditionally violent Fourth of July weekend, mostly in parts of the South and West sides that have long been plagued by gang crime and gun violence.

"From Friday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon about 60 people were shot with at least eight killed.The shootings took place in communities long beset by violence such as Roseland, Greater Grand Crossing and Back of the Yards on the South Side and East Garfield Park, Austin and North Lawndale on the West Side."

Shootings persisted in two of the city's most violent police districts:  Englewood and Harrison.

These are black communities.  These are the same ones that are so hateful of anything Confederate.

However, not one Confederate Flag-waving white racist, Confederate statue or memorial is suspected of any of the shootings or murders.
