|Leftists view of life in Edgebrook: |
You could stand on a corner and
never see a black girl cycling there in 5 years
Not so in chi-chi Edgebrook.
This Saturday some local do-gooders and artsy types will be celebrating the official inauguration of their new exquisite mosaic railway underpass mural.
Aside from being bright, cheery and expensive, it is also wonderfully didactic with the current neo-Marxist passion for propagandizing racial diversity and multiculturalism.
You see, in 88% white Edgebrook, the folks at some outfits called the Neighborhood Connection Project and the Green Star Movement decided to portray only non-whites on the mural.
So we are treated to a mosaic portrayal of a little black girl gaily bicycling, and a black man vending balloons and several Asian women standing around and another black man pulling on some kind of ribbon. It all looks like great community fun. And there isn't a single white person portrayed.

This is kind of funny, given the fact that the Sauganash/Edgebrook neighborhood, aside from having among the highest levels of income and lowest levels of crime in the entire city, also has a mere 1% black population, 8% Asian and 3% other.
On a weekend afternoon, the Edgebrook neighborhood truly looks like a time warp from the era of "Leave it to Beaver."
You'll see white kids playing street hockey or softball on the blacktop at St. Mary of the Woods, a virtually all white school. You'll see them riding their bikes, wearing shoulder pads, on their way to football practice. You'll see girls cycling home from soccer practice or meandering thru the snow on their way home from figure skating.
And amidst the sedate, tree-lined streets you'll see homes, some of them in the million dollar range, worthy of Winnetka or Glencoe.
But you see, Edgebrook is the de-facto, gated white community for the city's Democrat white collar patronage job holding elite.

Minorities on new mural are 100%
These are people drawing the big salaries at the top levels of the city police, fire and public works bureaucracies.
Or they're the attorneys at the big La Salle St. law firms that handle Chicago's legal business and investments. It's said that a full 20% of all Chicago cops live here or in the adjoining elite Sauganash and Forest Glen neighborhoods.
Edgebrook became a white collar patronage ghetto due to a city law requiring its employees to live within the city limits.
So since they couldn't move to Winnetka, they moved a version of Winnetka to the banks of the North branch of the Chicago River.
|Wonderful multicultural affection in |
88% white Democrat Eddgebrook
All legally and lawfully within the confines of the city.
But without the inconvenience of having to actually face the splendid realities of "diverse", "multicultural" "sanctuary city" Chicago.
So since the Edgebrook Democrat elite can't experience the joys of living among the Great Unwashed, they at least can look at cute mosaic images of them on their way to board the Metra train, on their way downtown to conjure up new schemes for subjecting the rest of us to their multicultural utopian dreams.
