Emanuel mounting challenge to census showing over 200,000 Negroes left Chicago - Duh! Daley shipped them to the suburb when CHA came down!
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is mounting a challenge to 2010 U.S. Census estimates that Chicago lost about 200,000 residents.
Big city mayors regularly contest the once-a-decade census results, which determine how much federal funding flows to different parts of the country. Chicago would gain about $1,200 annually for the next decade for each person added to the official population, according to Emanuel’s office.
Emanuel’s predecessor, Mayor Richard Daley, launched an unsuccessful bid to get Chicago’s 2000 population numbers increased. In 1990, Daley and other mayors tried futilely to get Congress to give them additional time to fight the census results.
The 2010 census estimated Chicago lost about 181,000 African-Americans and about 53,000 whites. Meanwhile, the illegal alien population grew in the sanctuary city of Chicago by about 25,000 and the Asian population went up more than 20,000. Overall, the city’s estimated poulation in 2010 was 2,695,598.
