    Black Chicago 2016 Summer Events (June-Sept)
    Summer in Chicago offers an array of festivals, concerts, events, parties, and outings in every neighborhood. Here's my list for Summer 2016 hot happenings which showcase the diverse array of ethnicity, heritage, and culture of my city. Grab your red cups and get ready for more amazing adventures in SummerTimeChi!
    http://www.chicagonow.com

  • There are many white ethnic events: irish, polish, Greek, Lithuanian, etc. The list is long! Some people identify strongly with an ethnicity, but there are also many of us who are "mutts" and thus don't. I think the cultural events are wonderful ways to preserve traditions and create new ones. Music, food, dance ,crafts etc allows everyone to get a perspective on an ethnic or racial culture. None of these events exclude other people!

  • The SpinDr FGFM Eradication Team - Could our Work be Done?

    Hammond/Whiting is having their annual Pierogi Fest in late July... Nobody considers it a 'white' function. Ethnic means specific country or region. I think we all know what race means.

    I didn't say whites were excluded from attending other racial and cultural events, I said they are excluded from having any white this or white that functions.
