Dwyane Wade Cousin, Nykea Aldridge was shot & killed on Friday, August 26, 2016 in Chicago’s Southside (Chiraq) by gang members shooting at each other in broad daylight. Last FB post “I Love Mom!”
The everyday violence of Chicago’s Southside has just gone mainstream. It takes a rich celebrity’s family member like Dwyane Wade Cousin, Nykea Aldridge to get shot and killed in broad daylight and in front of a lot of people to get the media and politicians to start paying attention to the gang war going on in the streets of Chicago. The Southside of Chicago is often referred to as ‘Chiraq‘; a reference to Iraq.
Dwyane Wade Cousin, Nykea Aldridge’s story is very sad but what about the people; including kids that have fallen and continue to fall victim to senseless killings in Chicago’s Southside? They are the gotten victim of the gang war because they don’t have a celebrity, rich and NBA superstar cousin like Dwyane Wade.
I’m not insinuating that Dwyane Wade Cousin, Nykea Aldridge doesn’t matter. I’m simply saying #AllBlackLivesMatter! She’s a mother of 4 children; now without a mother, they lives have changed forever.
Nykea Aldridge was pushing a stroller down a South Side Chicago street Friday afternoon when several men started shooting at each other.
One of the bullets hit her in the head. Another struck her in an arm. She died about 45 minutes later at a hospital.
Her aunt, Jolinda Wade, told CNN affiliate WLS that Aldridge was headed to an elementary school when she was shot.
“She wasn’t bothering nobody,” said Wade, whose son is Dwyane Wade, the 12-time NBA All-Star who recently signed a contract with his hometown Chicago Bulls. “She was just going to register her kids at school.”

So sad! Another young black girl gone too soon simply because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. R.I.P Nykea Aldridge.
The a**hole and racist Donald Trump is using Dwyane Wade Cousin, Nykea Aldridge death for political gain. Any black person who vote for this jack*ss in November should jump from the highest building in the U.S.
