    Again, Caucasians and other ethnic groups are moving into Bronzeville enjoying the hard fought amenities, walk their dogs all hours of the day and night and feel completely safe. But. Black men and boys are being systematically shot at and murdered by unknown assailants in dark colored cars or by rogue policemen.

    Have you read the code of silence by Jamie Kalvin?

  • Scotty Kummer Attorney, runner, dog lover, Bronzeville Resident.

    This was the shooting of a documented gang member, most likely by other gang members. So save your false narratives and racial rhetoric.

    Progressive Caucus wants guarantee in $100M neighborhood fund
    The City Council's Progressive Caucus is demanding that an ordinance creating Mayor Rahm Emanuel's $100 million "Catalyst Fund" include an ironclad guarantee that the money will be invested in neighborhoods truly in need. The all-purpose revenue ordinance that Emanuel introduced at Tuesday's City Council meeting falls far short of that demand.

    Ajamu Baraka rejects the 'lesser evil' of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats
    Ajamu Baraka is tired of the "lesser of two evils" argument frequently invoked during this presidential election to encourage support for Hillary Clinton as the only true alternative to Donald Trump. The Green Party vice presidential nominee sees the Democratic presidential nominee not as an antidote to Trumpism, but as a partial cause of it-a warmongering, corporate, right-winger who serves the "liberal bourgeoisie" instead of ordinary working people.
