Re: “Two mayors, two Chicagos

It means you are all naive to believe there is some quick solution to "desegregate".
Racial tension and mistrust are visceral intuitions that are centuries old and it can't be solved with some phony, liberal gestures of bullshit or political strategies.
We just have to ride this out for a few more generations and then maybe people will really believe "color" sincerely won't matter. Right now we are no where close to that resolve.

Re: “Two mayors, two Chicagos

And you must be in the "I'm white liberal with a lot of minority token friends ...and I did my good deed to support a minority today ... praise me now" camp ...

We as people have to evolve but it won't happen in our lifetime and perhaps not the next generation but eventually. There's just too many people in this world that perpetuates race alienation. (Politics, hollywood, news, etc etc.)

Re: “Two mayors, two Chicagos

Apathy and ethnocentrism may not be "racism" as we know it but exists because it's just human nature to feel comfortable to be around those that look and act like us.
Chicago and every city in America I've been to has been like this and will remain this way in our life time and perhaps the next... We live in a nexus of racial armistice ... End of story

Re: “What a Deal! 50% Off Your Job Prospects!

@Julie Are you personally vouching for Groupon and all it's departments? Because your "complete" statement sounds pretty definite that you can absolutely guarantee they "have never or would never" sue.

@me3dia There is a difference between a NON-COMPETE and a NON-DISCLOSURE agreement. I don't see Groupon being evil but like most large companies, absolutely lazy with their contracts. With all the capital at their disposal and their rosy PR at work, you would hope their lawyers can put better efforts into their contracts from being that transparently onerous.
Yes there *are* young freelancers and unemployed desperates out there who may naively sign such contracts. It's a question of corporate ethics (ridiculous as that term may sound).
