Chicago stay losing

In the past 24 hours alone, Chicago lost the chance to host the 2016 Olympics, and Kanye West and Lady Gaga’s Fame Kills tour, aka the Gay Tour, has been canceled – not to mention yet another kid getting his head split open to the white meat. If things keep on at this rate, Chicago is gonna be the next St. Louis.

It’s a little known fact that St. Louis was once the fourth largest city in the US. Now it’s not even in the top 50. We even once had an Olympics here. Back in the ’90s, there was talk about bringing the ’04 Olympics here, but the Olympics commission heard about it was like, “You aren’t serious, are you?” The only reason to come to St. Louis is if you want to become a homeowner on less than $12,000 a year, because you work in hip-hop journalism.

One thing I’ve learned about Chicago, in reading up on the Derrion Albert killing, is that it was hardly an aberration. It took place on a day when there had already been a shooting at or near the school. Remember when a school shooting alone was enough to make the national news? When I was in high school, there was always a school getting shot up, and it was usually a white kid upset he couldn’t get any stank on his hanglow. I guess the kind of school shootings they have in Chicago don’t count as school shootings per se, since they don’t fit the profile. They’re more along the lines of run of the mill street crime – they just happen to involve high school students.

Last school year, 30 some-odd Chicago high school kids were killed, mostly in shootings. This year, there’s already been a few, despite the fact that school has only been in a few weeks. I’ve read that this year, there might be even more killings than there were last year. Granted, this was before Nas wrote that letter. At any rate, it seems insane to me that so many high school kids could get killed in a year, and we hardly heard about it. At my high school, there was plaque for the only guy who went there who ever died, and he died of cancer.

This morning, a mere matter of minutes before it was announced that the Olympics wouldn’t be coming to Chicago (shocker!), I read that Obama has seen the Derrion Albert snuff footage. A reporter asked Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs, the fifth Bee Gee, if Obama had seen it, and Gibbs said that he did and that he found it chilling. Whether or not he watched it 16 times in a row, like I did, and whether he saw it on World Star, sandwiched between a Rosa Acosta stretching video and a clip from the Tyra show about why black women are constitutionally incapable of growing a full, healthy head of hair, I’m not sure.

Obama couldn’t describe his viewing of the Derrion Albert snuff footage himself, because he was over in Europe somewhere trying to convince the Olympics committee to bring the games to the Chi. What an unfortunate coincidence. And it looks especially bad for him, now that Chicago got passed over, as they say in the military (via Scent of a Woman). The fact that Bill Clinton could bring those Chinese women home from North Korea, but Obama couldn’t even beat Brazil in a bid for the 2016 Olympics makes him look ineffectual by comparison.

I was informed, via Twitter, that Chicago being passed over may have had to do with it problematic mass transit system, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Derrion Albert snuff footage played a role. The whole point of the Olympics is that the city hosting it gets a shedload of money to improve its infrastructure. You can’t even breathe the air in Beijing, but China just said fuck it and built a buncha indoor stadiums. I’m sure Chicago could have found a solution to its transportation problem. But obviously, if 30 some-odd school kids are dying a year, Chicago can’t get its crime under control. China? Not so much. If those chinks so much as got caught littering during the Olympics, they probably would have been sent to one of those prisons where they harvest your organs for sale on the black market. Why do you think the US has more people in prison than China, which has like a billion people? US prisons are soft. Prisons in China are on some Josef Mengele shit.

This is a digitized, interconnected world. If Obama caught the Derrion Albert snuff footage on World Star, what’s there to say the Olympic committee didn’t as well? It’s been the main news story re: Chicago in the last week or so. The Olympic committee probably took one look at that footage and said, Fuck that shit. We might actually be better off in the country where they shot City of God. Plus, because Chicago isn’t as low class as, say, a St. Louis, and because black people in Chicago are obviously dangerous than a motherfucker, I don’t think white women in Chicago are as down with the swirl. Women in Brazil, meanwhile, are already kinda ethnically ambiguous (like some of my new favorite video hoes). I heard they love black men down there. Bill Clinton probably would have accompanied Barack Obama on his trip to Europe and secured Chicago’s bid for 2016, but he was looking forward to getting his Michael Caine on down in Rio, Skinemax-style. I can hardly blame him.

    That’s exactly why they didnt get the Olympics. Maybe not entirely, but they didn’t want to see another “Munich” on their hands primarily involving Niggerdom……..Some sad shit!! Fuck Chicago……….I’d go there to get a slice of pizza then I’m out!! They have like 4 days of summer. Ha!!

  • Ayre

    Funny.

    Da Bears!

  • P. Harris

    you’ve got a point…

    “Granted, this was before Nas wrote that letter.”

    For the record, there is not a high level of correlation between the demographic killing in Chicago and Nas’s typical audience. In fact, I would bet that they think Nas is a fag. So his letter would be meaningless to them if they had been aware of it in the first place.

    i am fairly confident that derrion’s tragic death had nothing to do with it.

    443 murders in chicago in 2007, with the murder rate decreasing by roughly three percent each consecutive year.

    in rio, 2007, they were averaging 80 murders… a week. and the murder rate keeps increasing every year.

    and rio has an almost non-existent public transportation system.

    given this, the most likely reason the committee didnt select chicago is due to brazil pumping the committee full of money and gifts. this is the way the committee has been operating for ages.

      “given this, the most likely reason the committee didnt select chicago is due to brazil pumping the committee full of money and gifts. this is the way the committee has been operating for ages”

      Bingo.

      And if thinks Chicago’s crime rate had anything to do with it, Rio has areas totally beyond ANY government control or law enforcement, period.

    “The Olympic committee probably took one look at that footage and said, Fuck that shit.”

    Those were my exact thoughts when I heard the Chi lost out. It’s sad man.

  • OG Matt Herbz

    Nah, I don’t think there’s much correlation between Derrion’s death and them losing the bid. I couldn’t tell you the exact reasons, but thoreau presents some good ones. However, you’d think the “Leader of The Free World” would be able to bribe the committee with some democracy-loving, free-thinking leg spreaders and worthless American dollar bills.

    If I weren’t such a deep thinker, though, I’d assume that the committee was probably just in the mood for some bronze-skinned phat asses in thongs under a hot sun, and the alternative is a hard nippled, dry skinned, shivering stay next to a windy lake… Geography played its part.

    LOL, you stay taking shots at Nas. Illmatic is still my shit, but he’s more pretensious than a Tupac fan.

  • Money Mitch

    Wow bol your are a racist and clearly have never spent a day in prison in your life!

  • BIGNAT

    “i don’t mean this in a disrespectful way/ but columbine happens in the ghetto everyday” LL Cool J that is so true when bad things happen where there is hardly any crime. it’s a issue ot it’s tragic. when it happens in a place that seems to always have problems. it’s not a issue it’s accepted that is just what happens there.

  • Brooklyn

    i don’t think that they lost the olympics because of the incident, but it’s fucked up that this incident doesn’t seem to faze the president or the mayor of chi-town. they in europe begging them nordic niggas for the olympics and kids are being murked in their city for no reason. this isn’t a new problem, derrion ain’t the first kid in chi-town to reach a sudden untimely demise, this has been going on for a minute, and yet they haven’t taken steps to improve the situation. and they trying to get the olympics? ain’t no foreign athletes trying to come up in chicago, if they murder their own kids, they’ll damn sure murder some foreign niggas in tights. before them niggas invite folks to eat in their home, they need to clean up their kitchen, real talk. don’t nobody wanna eat your fried chicken when you got roaches having orgies on the stovetop.

    • chillin mayne

      in one take….. and thats a wrap!

    • droopey

      @ Brooklyn

      I was in Florida 3 months ago at my aunts place, and I saw roaches on the stove.

      Just thought I’d add that.

      Me personally I wouldn’t attend the Olympics if they were staged in Chicago simply because negros get killed in America on a regs! I don’t want mistaken identify for example im a black British male, I dont want to get a cap put in my arse because someone thinks im an American or what not.

    chicago is a fucking dump anyway?

    rio De Janeiro> chicago anyday regardless. and they get free health care there too dont they?

    Top 3 reasons brazil won the bid(below) and violence has nothing to do with it because brazil slums make our ghettos look like the burbs idiot. Now let me help bol get paid via hits and correct him at the same time.

    3. Latin america has never hosted and the olympics as the rest of the world is looking to make a statement with this.

    2. Brazil throws some of the wilded bashes is the world.

    1. Somebody please go to a beach in brazil. Their are everyday broads that make Beyounce look like a foot. Now I don’t know about you but for the first time in a long time I want to go to the olympics with a breif case filled with condums. Quote Nore wear 3 condums down in brazil. So as a destination I would say Brazil is a better pick as far as a paradise feel if you can stay away from showing the slums and being kidnapped or getting robbed by one of those gorgeous broads.

    • Brooklyn

      hell, them europeans knew what they were doing when they agreed to have the olympics in rio, they wanted some of that mixed race pussy. even the ugly bitches in brazil are bad, especially since they’re like the plastic surgery capitol of the western hemisphere. but them brazilian niggas is grimy too, fuck around and you’ll lose a fucking ear down there, real talk.
