Is Chicago Media Part of the Violence Problem in Chicago???
Some of the 100 youth and people taking the Honorable Man Pledge.
In Chicago, the city that leads the nation in murders, when 100 Black men and boys and their families came together to take the Honorable Man Pledge to move away from violence and pledge to build a stronger city, none of the 75 invited media-types showed up or showed any interest in the story featuring young Black men NOT shooting, NOT stabbing, NOT robbing, NOT fighting, NOT killing or NOT being violent.
Some of family members of young Black men at front encourage young men to take the Honorable Man Pledge.
If one of the young men had pulled out a gun and shot another of the young Black men or a child, the media would have given this story instant national coverage. It seems for Chicago media, "No Violence - No Story!!!" In Chicago, is the media part of the violence problem?
