Re: “Majority of CPS schools shuttered in 2013 are still vacant

Oh ben's self-righteous tirade is really missing the point. "You could always try voting. That's a "policy process" that works in a lot of places." Like, do you not realize that many lower income people of color are disenfranchised from the voting process? And often have more pressing concerns to tend to then getting involved with politicians, who 9/10 don't listen to them anyway? It blows my mind that some people can read about situations like these and not be outraged that people in power are willing to close down a basic constitutional right like good public education. And instead of pointing out that "that's just how real estate works," try questioning the parasitic capitalist system that allows real estate to work the way it does. I'm sure you would argue that the "free" market and the "voting process" will restitute true equality in time.

Anyway, this was a great article and an issue that hasn't received nearly the attention it should have. Thank you.
