The murder rate in Chicago is ridiculous! It's a shame that President Barack Obama can stop what's he's doing when children in a predominately White suburban area are shot and killed, but can barely speak on the Black kids who are slain nearly everyday in Chicago. Mr. President, you need to acknowledge when any of our children are slain by gun violence and fight to protect all children. Black and Hispanic kids dying from gun violence is NOT normal despite what the media reports will say. Do what is right. Visit your hometown and fight to end gun violence in urban communities too!

Hadiya is symbolic to all of our children & she was my daughter's friend. She epitomizes the innocence of childhood that has tragically come to an end!

The Honorable Minister Farrakhan requested POTUS Barack Obama come into Chicago and address the high murder rate on www.noi.org/thetime. Surely the POTUS can speak to the youth where he lives. That young girl could have been his daughter. It is actually not that far from his home in Chicago.
