Discusses how Chicago has had historical problems among its racial populations. It examines how many minorities have charged police of excessive brutality, and despite the fact that an individual of a minority race is the chief of police, such problems continue. This paper examines the fragile issue of race relations in Chicago.
From the Paper:"Chicago's history has been turbulent as far as race relations are concerned. A shocking report by the Chicago Community Trust Human Relations Task Force, which was released roughly ten years ago, revealed what blacks and other ethnic minorities knew already, that discrimination and racial prejudice was rampant in Chicago and that blacks and whites are divided along racial and ethnic lines. In late Dec. 2000, another Task force, "The Human Relations Foundation of Chicago" concluded that "ethnic minorities are being discriminated against in more subtle ways ". The report adds that there are gaps in income, education and wealth, between Whites and other ethnic minorities in Chicago. This meant that people are still divided along racial lines, as indicated by the segregated nature of housing in Chicago."
