  •  When I lived in Chicago, a group of young poor (3+ / 0-)

    uneducated unemployed white boys got bamboozled by a white guy in a nice convertible who came into the neighborhood and told them that the root of ALL of their troubles were all the "other" people who lived in the neighborhood.  This was a ward that was white, black, latino, asian, native, immigrant, gay, straight, rich, poor, doctors, coal miners from Appalachia with black lung, educated, poorly educated, powerful (the Gov had a townhouse near the lake), impoverished, with mansions and tenements...this guy came with a handful of cash, keys to an old car, a handgun, a confederate flag, and a virulent ideology of hate and separation.  

    The boys began terrorizing the neighborhood.  One of them, with good honest parents from Appalachia, broke with the group, and was shot dead by them.   A good decent family lost their son, who was set up ambushed and murdered by his "friends".  The guy with the car disappeared and never came back.  So much for White Power.
