What the Tribune's kiddie tabloid conveniently failed to report was the racial breakdown of rapes in Chicago.
They had no problem reporting the race breakdown of murders in Chicago in their subsequent August 2nd story on homicides here. That's because blacks are overwhelmingly the victims there (and the killers as well.)
But stony silence from Chicago's liberal media on the race of Chicago's rapists and the race of their victims.
That's because the vast preponderance of the women raped here are white women. And the majority of their rapists are black men.
According to one of the very few breakdowns by race culled from FBI crime stats, black-on-white rape is 115 times more common than the reverse.
The only two famous alleged sexual assaults by white men on black women in the last two decades – the Tawana Brawley and Duke rape cases – turned out to be hoaxes.
So you can bet your sweet life that if white men were shown by the stats to be running down to Englewood in big numbers to rape black girls, the Tribune would have been shouting that from the rooftops.
Al Sharpton would get into a shoving match with Jesse Jackson to see who could get the most TV camera facetime. And those two odious race hucksters would be howling about white racism and calling on Obama's hack U.S. Attorney General to start investigating these as federal white "hate crimes."
The scribe who penned the August 1st rape article for Chicago's Newspaper for Dummies, the Redeye, was one Rachel Cromidas.

Asked by the Chicago Lampoon as to why the racial stats were happily reported in the homicide story but omitted from the rape story, she told us," The dataset I was able to use for my story did not include a racial breakdown. I don’t work on RedEye’s homicide coverage but my understanding is they have had more detailed data to work from."
Surprise, Surprise Surprise!!
Quite a curious lack of journalistic curiosity, wouldn't you say?
In light of some of the few recent 2013 high profile Chicago rapes, where the respective races of the perp and victim were reported:
- the carjacking and rape of a white woman by a black teen
-- the abduction from a Rogers Park bus stop and rape of a white Loyola U. student by an obese black man
-- the serial black rapist of white women in Lincoln Park
-- you would think a competent journalistic inquiry would demand a precise racial breakdown.
So what do the only available statistics tell us? A message the Tribune will not report.
The real repository of racism in America – manifest in violent interracial assault, rape and murder – is to be found not in the white community, but the African-American community. In almost all interracial attacks, whites are the victims, not the victimizers.
But that subject is taboo in the fantasyland of the mainstream liberal news media. No wonder they're going out of business.
