Chicago's Rev Corey Brooks & Woodlawn community plans summer patrols, festivals "Summer HOODvasion"

With the goal of preventing violence from claiming any lives this summer in Woodlawn, a “Summer HOODvasion” is coming to the South Side Chicago community.

The campaign, to include watchmen patrolling the neighborhood weekend nights, Saturday daytime festivals for youth and Thursday prayer corners, is an effort of the New Beginnings Church in Woodlawn.

The program was unveiled Sunday by church pastor the Rev. Corey Brooks, who recently made headlines for spending 94 days in a tent on top of an abandoned motel to raise money to buy the blighted property and build a community and economic development center for the Woodlawn and Englewood communities.

As the Sun-Times reported Saturday, Brooks also plans to walk 2,700 miles across America to help raise $15 million to build the center and draw attention to the need to combat urban violence here and around the United States.

Draw attention to the need to combat urban violence, that's rich. All they need to do is buy a bunch of mirrors. That will show them exactly the root cause of urban violence.

Summer patrols? Like watchdog groups? Wait a minute, isn't that vigilantism, as according to Sharpton and Jesse. What a joke.
Another double standard.

Africanus culture at it's most colorful.

Aren't these the same people who rub shit ("cow dung") into their hair and think its a beauty statement?

Aren't these the same people who stimulate a cows vagina with their mouth to get the cow to lactate and then later take a piss shower?

Anyone who says niggers in America are the way they are because of slavery and racism in America keeping them down, explain this: Africa, where niggers are allowed to run wild and behave how they like, is a violent, poverty stricken, AIDS infested shithole. So what's keeping the niggers in Africa who govern themselves down? What's your excuse for that? Niggers, no matter where they are, destroy everything. They are a disease on the human race.

Wow! I clicked on this blog to read about Pastor Corey Brooks' Scam and it actually started out pretty good. Not surprisingly, however some ignorant person always has to come along and perpetuate the stereotype by pulling the race card. @Anonymous you've obviously never been to Africa, because if you had you'd know it's actually a very rich and vibrant continent. In fact, you've probably never even been outside of the four walls of your suburban home. You're also obviously speaking from the mis-education and propaganda that's been fed to you your entire life by Western Civilization. However, it might surprise you to know that there are more cases of AIDS in America than in many African countries. You can find that information in any encyclopedia. So please, next time before you start talking shit, get up on your facts...ass wipe.

@Anonymous Also, I failed to mention that if you do see any Africans "running wild, in poverty, with AIDS, and living in infested shitholes" first stop and consider this...hundreds of years of slavery and racism did not only effect black people on the North America continent. It effected the entire world. Do you understand that? So when you say these things you are only making things worse for yourself and others who have your same skin color. So please stop.

And to the person who owns this blog...can you please think about the things you post before you post them? Are you racist? Do you want to perpetuate racism or do you want to stop it? Is there any value in allowing people to post racist things to your blog? I'm not trying to be a smart ass...I'm just asking.

There probably is no value posting racist things beyond the fact that it feels pretty good.

I have to agree that Africa is a rich and vibrant continent. It is the people living there that fuck it up.

It looks like hundreds of years of slavery made some people use "effect" instead of "affect".
