The "Background" section of this article is pure Howard Zinn garbage, it's written in bad English by a non-native speaker, and it repeats information in the main section. It should be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:02, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Agreed, in addition to the garbled syntax, the rioters were primarily, perhaps exclusively, German. While Irish Chicagoans of the time had their own grievances, this is out of place here. I'll remove it once I've come up with a better background. Sam Paris (talk) 22:09, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
