Media blackout of black Chicago protesters marching against Obama

Media blackout of black Chicago protesters marching against Obama

Black Chicagoans from the south and west sides took their message to what they say is the source of the problem when they converged outside of a fundraiser held by Mayor Emanuel for Barack Obama and then marched to the studios of ABC News.

Their message, “let us work in our own community,” was made all the more poignant as the ABC News crew ignored the news event outside their very studios. Not one camera was sent to cover the news that was, literally, placed at their doorstep.

The protest, which took place Thursday evening, addressed these community members’ growing desperation as their wartorn neighborhoods are redeveloped by political cronies, evicting residents and shutting out local investors, and use union labor from outside the community to do the work. It’s a corrupt cycle of government “work” that takes advantage of the poor, evicting them, and then redeveloping the properties to benefit anyone but the community.

In the video below, community members who say they are desperate for jobs and investment, focus their protest against liberal leadership, including Obama and Emanuel, so-called community organizations like ACORN, and unions:

In an earlier video published by Jeremy Segal “Rebel Pundit,” a community member elaborated on the issue the inner-city black community has with unions: they won’t hire black people. Therefore any work going to their communities for building sites, etc., shuts them out of jobs. Segal writes:

According to Mark Carter of the Broke Party, a newly formed group of black grassroots activists fed up with the destruction and blight brought on their community by the liberal agenda, the protest was “about bringing attention to the demolition of homes in Chicago’s black communities on the west and south sides.” These buildings, Carter says, “can still be saved, but the city is tearing them down,” leaving property values and the community in the gutter.

Carter told Breitbart News they chose the Obama fundraiser as the starting point for the protest in order to send a direct message to Rahm Emanuel and Washington, D.C. that they will not be voting on Tuesday for those politicians who are allowing their homes and community to be demolished.

In an effort to bring even further attention to the ongoing issues of the black community in Chicago, the protest ended up outside of ABC 7 News’s local broadcast studio on State Street. This studio can be viewed from the street and sidewalk. When the protesters arrived, they used a bullhorn to announce themselves and called on weather reporter Jerry Taft, seen through the window, not to pretend they weren’t there, prompting a wave from Taft to the protesters.

As the new jobs numbers show black unemployment has risen to 14.3 percent, this community is desperate for work. They are desperate to find a new way outside of liberal leadership. And  they are desperate for the media to stop the blackout on the real stories happening in the inner-city communities.

What can the inner-city black community do to get ABC News and other outlets to cover their plight, if bringing news to their very doorstep is not enough for the media to pay attention?

“…community members’ growing desperation as their wartorn neighborhoods are redeveloped by political cronies…”

For those who don’t know, one of the TOP CRONIES in this regard is Valerie Jarrett – OBOZO’s “decider.”

    Jarrett didn’t build that, she was just the fixer who got rich. Now she protects Obama from having to speak with anyone who might discover he’s really a lightweight idiot trained to parrot lines.

    I always thought Obama’s campaign slogan should be, “What’s in YOUR wallet?”

    This Problem has been going since Bush was in office. The Rupublicans threw out all the poor people by the water front in Yonkers, New York. Also in Harlem, Spainish Harlem, by the New Yankee Stadium etc..etc..etc.

      BDS: Bush Derangement Syndrome.

      ARE YOU FOR REAL???
      Those people are clearly pissed off at LIBERALS FROM WHAT LIBERALS HAVE DONE IN CHICAGO AND THEY ARE NOT ANGRY AT BUSH!!! THEY ARE NOT THAT STUPID!! THEY OWN BUSINESSES AND THEY KNOW RAHM EMMANUAL AND OBAMA ARE THE PROBLEM!!

      YOU LIBERALS DON’T EVEN LISTEN TO THE VIDEO AND YOU MAKE STATEMENTS LIKE YOU KNOW SOMETHING!!
      SOMETIMES I WONDER IF YOU KNOW WHATS GOING ON REALLY AND JUST BLATANTLY LIE TO PUSH A LIBERAL AGENDA AND JUST FOOL YOURSELF INTO BELIEVING THAT ITS RIGHT THOUGH YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!

      YOU CANT POSSIBLY BELIEVE THAT BUSH RUINED THIS ECONOMY!!!!
      OBAMA’S LIES ARE DEEP WITHIN YOU!! SO DEEP YOU ARE SOO BLINDED!!

      Irrelevant. Obama didn’t stop it; he own it.

[…] As we know all too well, it is difficult to reject your party’s presidential nominee because you also alienate political friends, social friends, contacts and networks you worked for a lifetime to achieve. Gigi Georges has, like us, done just that and deserves praise for putting country above corrupt party. It might not seem like such a difficult decision for some – but to throw away a lifetime investment in friends and political associates over principles is not such an easy choice to make for many. Thanks Gigi. And thanks to the many African-American Hillary supporters and others speaking against Barack Obama and his cronies. […]

My black fellow Americans, your “leaders” are doing well for themselves and badly by you. The phenomenon is not limited to the black community but it’s especially egregious there. Nothing will change until you change how you vote, and you will not change how you vote until you change how you think. With respect, consider your compatriots like Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele, Allen West, Mia Love and many others, and their predecessors.

Many more people than you perhaps expect wish you well and are ready to work with you, but change begins from within.

I wish I lived closer. I’d march right along with them. And someone mentioned Valerie Jarrett, she’s the worst of the worst….

With Clinton, it was “I feel your pain.” With Obama, it’s “I’m the pain you feel.” Keep marching!

Drug Prohibition is another tool of these wreckers.

Sadly, the real issue here is that the Blue Economic model is designed to keep people like this in thrall. It’s the modern version of slavery.

This illustrates perfectly the uselessness of the corrupt mainstream media. In fact, a campaign to expose, neutralize and reform the media in general is called for.

Freedom of the press should carry with it responsible requirements that would be associated with any activity involving the public trust.

Anyone up for digging up ol’ Joe McCarthy???

We’re going to need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to sort out all the media’s crimes in this election.

These people need to be in a Tea Party group! This is exactly the kind of thing we are upset about.

These people need to keep fighting and force the media to listen to them. They are 100% right!!! It takes alot of guts to go against the grain but what is this party doing for you while you are expected to vote them in so they can get fat and happy. Keep fighting the good fight there’s strength in numbers!!!

I’ll sure help spread the word about them. The only way to get the MSM to do anything is by making a very loud noise.

    I didn’t see anything in the remarks from the various protestors quoted that indicates they no longer want hand-outs. It looks to me like they’re saying that there’s all this gravy coming in and they’re not getting any of it. As for the unions not wanting to hire/let them in, maybe the unions are waiting for the inner city ghetto dwellers to develop some job skills. It’s hard to market and negotiate a labor pool with no job skills, education, or work ethic.

Some of you have asked how to contact them. You can “friend” them on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/TheBrokeParty

And yet, on election day, they’ll pull the lever for Obama. Because skin color always trumps.
