Are the Blacks victims in Chicago and Illinois of shootings being considered necessary collateral damage by the Democrat Party?

The Chicago Tribune Editorial recommended Mayor Lightfoot and Governor Pritzker accept President Trump’s request to help reduce the shootings in Chicago.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb to this issue and to question if the Democrat Party by ignoring help being offered is in effect considering “Black Lives Don’t Matter” in their quest to win the war for the White House in 2020.

Definition of Collateral Damage – Merriam Webster

: injury inflicted on something other than an intended target specifically: civilian casualties of a military operation

King Solomon

Surely you need guidance to wage war, and victory is won through many advisers. (Proverb 24:6)


but should consult whether they have a sufficiency of men and money to carry it on; and should concert the wisest methods to attack the enemy, or defend themselves;

What’s My Point?

Regardless of political party or sensitivities perceived as insults by Mayor Lightfoot or Governor Pritzker, what Trump stated is factual

For Example

“Violence and death, which are disproportionately harming young African Americans, are tragic and unacceptable, particularly on such a shocking scale.”

If you are willing to put partisanship aside, we can revitalize distressed neighborhoods in Chicago, together.  But to succeed, you must establish law and order.

 My Administration would also welcome the opportunity to engage with you and your colleagues as you develop bipartisan policy recommendations to improve policing and make our great cities safer for all.

My point is no one can deny that there is a shooting war taking place in Chicago and the victims are predominately Blacks.

3000 years ago, King Solomon was considered the wisest man in the world who observed and recorded the above verse that “in a war victory is won with many advisors.”

In My Opinion

To ignore the offer is folly. To allow the present shootings to continue can only be surmised in my opinion that Blacks Lives Don’t Matter in comparison to the Democrats war to win the 2020 election.

What other reason can it be than to ignore an offer to at least sit and talk to advisors on a Nation with probably the most experienced Generals and military equipment available in our Nation is folly?

If the parties are secretly meeting and this is not being reported in the news, my accolades to the leaders.

You Decide

Collateral Damage is the main reason the offer is being ignored during the war in Chicago of gangs, guns, and drugs?

Or perhaps we can choose one these reasons aptly named in ancient times as: deadly sins”

Gula (gluttony)

Luxuria/Fornicatio (lustfornication)

Avaritia (avarice/greed)

Superbia (pride, hubris)

Tristitia (sorrow/despair/despondency)

Ira (wrath)

Vanagloria (vainglory)

Acedia (sloth)
