ILL-inois: Houston poised to pass Chicago in population in 10 years

Abandoned West Side
Chicago home
High crime, high taxes, and a self-serving and inept government continue to take their toll on Chicago.

And before you call me a racist for spreading this news, it is blacks who are leading the exodus out of Chiraq and ILL-inois.

Until the early 1980s Chicago was America's second-most populous city.

From the Chicago Tribune:
Chicago, the only city among the nation's 20 largest to see population loss in 2015, could be overtaken in a decade by Houston as the third-most-populous city if the trend continues, experts said.

The city of Chicago lost about 2,890 residents between 2014 and 2015, bringing the city's population down to 2,720,546, according to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Numbers made available in March showed the greater Chicago area, which includes the city and suburbs and extends into Wisconsin and Indiana, lost an estimated 6,263 residents — the greatest loss of any metropolitan area in the country.

The population decline in the Chicago metropolitan area is the first since at least 1990, according to census data.
