You're not quite getting it my dude. No disrespect, but it's not just segregation. Racial tensions been flaring off . Someting yo won't understand because you're not in Chicago and you can't see what going on in our news. Past few years mexicans and blacks have been fighting in the communties wehre mexicans are closer to black neighborhoods. The real reason the tensions dont boil over into full out violence is because 93% of the southside is black people.. Mexicans aren't even in numbers for there to be serious tension like in Los Angeles, Compton and other places in California. 5% of the southside is mexican. The other 2% is whites and arabs..Cheech wrote:Self segregating aint racial tension dummy. You would think if there was real racial tension word would get around but all i hear from chicago people is them talking about how they arent about race.
Ive been up in nyc and even the puerto ricans got some of their own blocks seperated from black people and nobody is talking about black-pr beef in nyc
The exception is when different races live in one neighborhood. Different races living in tge same neighborhood isnt normal in america
The tension is evident by the fact that black people don't go through or pass throguh mexican neighborhoods on foot and vice versa. Yet on the northside any race can go throguh anywhere and they all assimilate.
Like I said, the comparison is between the southside and northside of chcicago. We're not comparing it to missisipi or calfornia.
