I have been following the Chicago Ward Remapping, and there are some really Questionable politics going on regarding this matter.
One of the best explanations has been submitted by one of my readers, concerning Chicago’s 6th Ward Remapping:
From: Irate in the 6th Ward!
If anyone from the 6th Ward attended the remapping meeting held by Committee
Chairman Alderman Richard Mell last night at the Morgan Park High School
auditorium, well, you ought to be IRATE! If there was ever a reason on why
black folks are always on the losing end, well– that meeting was a prime
example of it. That entire meeting was dominated by the 19th Ward who
showed us why white folks get what they want!
Here were white people organized TO THE MAX to protest any remapping of the
19th Ward. They had signage: lawn and window signs and they had stickers for
you to wear too! Plus, they had their Alderman, Matt O’ Shea, leading the charge!

So I ask you, who do you think the City Hall folks will be listening to? What
the hell is wrong with our ward? What the hell is wrong with us!
You got the community groups of West Chesterfield and Roseland Heights
trying to get folks aroused and focused. You got GCA trying to support those
groups. But where is Chesterfield on this? Where is Park Manor on this? Where
is Chatham Avalon on this? Who gives a damn about a pancake house right now?!
We are about to watch our ward splinter into nothingness!
The Black Caucus, who hired our former Alderman (Lyle), is trying to suppress
the best black voting block in the city! It’s us people, us! And do you see a
back story here. And this is what I have to say to Alderman Brookins, who
hired Lyle for this job: here’s my $200 notion on your remapping recommendation
for the 6th Ward cause it’s worth more than two cents: why don’t you let the 6th
Ward take over the streets from 79th to 87th that contain West Chatham–at least
that’s what those residents called themselves. You know, that small business area
across the expressway that you keep in your ward!
Why don’t you give us the area that contains Lowes, Walmart, Aldi and Home
Depot all the way over to Simeon High School. Then maybe, it would make
some sense to cut off the 6th Ward at 87th Street! Let’s face it, your ward
would never have gotten those businesses if those companies hadn’t
eyeballed the professional and semi-professional residents who live in
Chatham! Or the Chatham seniors who were former city, state and county
professionals with their solid pensions. Do you you think, Brookins, that we
are so stupid in the 6th Ward as not to understand those “Brainy Smurf” ideas
Does every adult in the 6th Ward need a pimp slap to get out of this malaise?
People, they are about to snip away a third of our ward and leave us like a shorn
Samson. We’re the ward that has the real voters’ strength! Don’t let the Philistines
take that away from us!
Wow! Great details in your observation.
It really pisses me off that our Black politicians are so determined to enrich and empower themselves by destroying the Black Community, specifically, those Black Communities that actively want to live the American Dream.
Black Folks, demand your rights and don’t support these rotten Black politicians, just because they are Black and Democrat!
It’s supposed to be about US, Not THEM! We pay their salaries!
