  • I agree with gp so here is a start. Watch the following video, by a black man, and tell me how much change would happen if they followed his advice.

  • Nothings gonna change unless the 80% of whites that are not against blacks and the 80% of blacks that are not against whites get together for real change. The white media, politicians, and the black leaders will never let this happen. They divide and insite so they can keep their power. And so it goes, on and on and on?

Looking for Ms. Ernestine King of The Garfield Park Chamber of Commerce.

The community badly needs the services provided by the Chamber, it was evident in a meeting today. Ms. King please reconsider reopening the Chamber or if you are no longer interested, would you kindly mentor someone?

Thank you,

Alderman Ervin :Bloody Streets of the 28th Ward

Ervin has failed again. The past week was a bloodbath in which 20 shootings happened in and around the 28th ward.
Ervin's father was a police commander. You would think the ward would get better police protection.
I talked to some officers that work in nearby police stations. Some white cops won't do police work because they believe Ervin is a racist that will get them fired.

A few black officers believe Ervin will attack them as Uncle Toms. One also said Ervin supports gang drug sales.

Whether this is all true or not, the violence bloodshed and drug activity is all saying one thing
ERVIN HAS TO GO !!!

Get your patience ready while you going to see Alderman Zalewski

Get your patience ready while you going to see Alderman Zalewski or hear from him for the first time in 4 years. Chicago politics are as bad as we know or as bad as we don't know to acknowledge them. With 4 candidates hungry for the 23rd Ward Zalewski and his team will utilize all 7 different tactics and then more for sure! Read this great article about what Zalewski already is doing to knock out any contenders. Can't wait to see how it ends, but I rather see other people do as I am planning to do which is vote for anyone but Zalewski! http://www.buzzfeed.com/urbanvoice101/top-7-ways-chicago-incumbent-aldermen-will-try-to-uru9
