On the surface, I would guess that Dupage County doesn't have the problems
with classism and racism that Chicago has.
While your statistics may indeed be "interesting" - they are not "deep."
There are cruelly real problems in Chicago and in many of our cities -
warning people to stay away from the troublesome areas addresses
survivability of the individuals to whom the post is being sent, but the
deeper problems will keep growing until people/politicians show they care
about the survivability of our disenfranchised brothers and sisters.
