Capitol Fax: Rush says Kirk idea is “upper-middle-class, elitist white boy solution”

Sen. Mark Kirk and his colleague Sen. Dick Durbin had met with the nominee US Attorney for the Northern District Zachary Fardon to discuss not only his confirmation but also strategy to combat crime by urban street gangs. The Gangster Disciples were especially mentioned.

However, Congressman Bobby Rush responded by throwing around the race card. Some of his quote you see above in the title of this post here.

We're eager for a solution to the crime and violence by urban streetgangs. Was the Congressman's quote over the top? If it was does anyone wish more can be done by our political leaders on this issue?
