Is it a wise or foolish ballet opinion occurring in a city comprised of 50 city aldermen to prioritize their time debating an issue to rename a street while every day shootings and crime in the streets is raging?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: No Vote on renaming lake shore drive for Dusable as City Council fights over new Law Department nominee.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb, an idiom, and perhaps to help discern the truth about the murder rate differences in two cities.

Cities Comparisons

Chicago with a population of 2,670, 080 has 50 aldermen, and recently passed legislation to elect a 21-member school board. Murder rate ranking 24.13 per 100,000.

Los Angeles population is 3, 979,576 has 15 council members and has a 7-member school board. Murder Rate ranking 7.01 per 100,000.

King Solomon

24 Do away with any talk that twists and distorts the truth;
    have nothing to do with any verbal trickery.
25 Keep your head up, your eyes straight ahead,
    and your focus fixed on what is in front of you.
26 Take care you don’t stray from the straight path, the way of truth,
    and you will safely reach the end of your road. (Proverb 4:24)

Idiom – Dancing Around the Truth

“Ballet. It’s everywhere, it’s big time racist.”

What’s My Point?

The majority of victims of shootings in the city of Chicago are Blacks shooting Blacks in a city with a Black mayor and 50 aldermen of various ethnic and religious cultures.

The truth in a comparison of two cities, the murder rates are significantly different same as the number of city leaders makes one wonder or discern if the City of Chicago methods of leadership and authority may be the key to the question if racism ballet dance “around the truth” of why there is such a difference between the two cities.

My point is to question if the current heated debates in Chicago about renaming a street to end racism is similar to a ballet to dance around the truths of racism rather than do what is necessary to reduce the murders and violence taking place.

In My Opinion

The murder rate in Chicago as well as other urban cities in our Nation is a signal that the governing bodies are dancing around the problems instead of doing what is necessary.

What is necessary is to return to a short-term solution of enforcing law and order by using the same methods used throughout the history of mankind which is to enforce the laws.

The long-term method is to return to teaching discipline and religious morality s by legislators passing laws of school choice or school vouchers.

In other words, the truth is government leaders regardless of color of skin, culture, or religion are obviously not working to reduce the present path of murders and violence occurring in Chicago and other high urban crime areas.

Instead, all the leaders are dancing around the issues such as renaming streets will help solve the problems of racism when the truth is the majority of crimes and victims are Blacks enacting the majority of violence against other Blacks.

You Decide

Will government leaders end racism by changing street names or enforcing the laws?

Will alderman be debating and arguing about renaming streets and virtually silent about murder, street gangs, drugs, crime statistics in Chicago and indication of leadership not following the path of King Solomons above proverbial advice written 3000 years ago.

Is operating a city by borrowing and adding subsidized social benefits never been proven to end racism in the USA?

Is never teaching wisdom and love in the Bible to instill discipline and morality ever proven to be an effective method of governing in any Nation or Society for subsidizing taxpayer money to solve lack of discipline and morality to children in single parent families.

Will adding more dancers in a ballet produce   a better ballet or is long term discipline and sacrifice by a smaller number of talented dedicated dancers in addition to listening to good music led by a talented conductor with understanding the truth of the problems in order to lead the orc raster?  

If Interested

Read the Source Links below and then ask yourself if the White Supremacy opinion of the writer is entirely driving the core issue of racism and culture problems, or other high crime urban areas om the USA, or is the article really another ballet of opinion dancing around the truth?

“Ansley writes that white supremacy is “a political, economic and cultural system in which whites overwhelmingly control power and material resources, conscious and unconscious ideas of white superiority and entitlement are widespread, and relations of white dominance and non- white subordination are daily reenacted across a broad array of institutions and social settings.”

Or, perhaps the truth has more to do with a combination of a breakdown of law and order, political leadership, lessening of two parent families, discipline and religious morality never being taught in government public schools, and a high rate of use of recreational drugs and resultant drug addictions currently being allowed to enter the USA, or be promoted in all communities, skin colors, and cultures in the USA?

Regards and goodwill blogging.
