Welcome to Chiraq

This statement project's purpose was to shed light on the "inflated" violence in Chicago. The truth is Chicago's crime "problem" did not come about by accident, but by policy and Black people fell straight into the trap. If you look at areas in which crime is concentrated, it is located in a small number of poor, blighted, and mostly Black neighborhoods. The plight in these neighborhoods are due to sordid history of systemic, endemic poverty, and official neglect over many decades. 

At first glance, it appears this project is about Black on Black crime, but the concept is deeper than what can be seen on the surface because the true question is "why does this crime exist", not who is committing the crime.
