2020 Democratic presidential candidates have raised Cain over the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 32 dead and scores injured.
While calling him a “white nationalist” and racist,” all the candidates but Julian Castro, have blamed President Donald Trump for the shootings that were committed by two mentally disturbed individuals, one of them being a devour leftist who supported Elizabeth Warren.
President Trump came out and denounced “white nationalism” and all forms of hate, and called for “Red Flag” laws to be enacted, but that wasn’t enough for Democrats, as they continue to play the “racist” card in hopes to garner more support from the base of their political party.
But while they are quick to point at the mass shootings that have been committed by mostly white males, Democrats and Trump detractors refuse to recognize the genocide that is occurring in the Democratic-controlled city of Chicago, where 293 people have been killed by mostly other young black males.
Quick note: Chicago is President Obama’s home town, and his former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is the sitting mayor of the city.
Obama released a statement about the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, expressing his and Michelle Obama’s condolences, but also pivoted to the ongoing “racism” narrative about the El Paso shooting.

“The majority of Chicago homicides are the result of gun violence.”
In 2018, 326 people were killed on the streets of Chicago.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “The majority of the victims of homicide in Chicago are young, black men” by young, black men living in the predominantly minority communities.
Where is the outcry over the Black-on-Black gun violence?
Sen. Cory Booker did mention this past weekend’s shootings in Chicago, not no one else did, and it begs to question, where are Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jacksons on this issue?
What are Republicans and Democrats going to do with the gun violence in Chicago? What can they do?
