Back to back weekends in Chicago

Last weekend, several hundred people turned out in Chicago to protest the Florida shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

But did you read what happened in Chicago the weekend before? Let the Huffington Post fill you in:

At least 10 people were killed and 40 others wounded in one of the most violent Chicago weekends in recent history. 
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that most of the victims were in their mid-teens or early 30s, with the exception of 6-year-old Aliyah Shell, who was gunned down Saturday while playing in front of her home in the Little Village neighborhood.
Anyone see or hear Chicago's Jesse Jackson or other civil rights leaders making a national fuss and calling for justice over these Chicago victims? How about Chicago's own Barack Obama?
