    Yes. I had this happen yesterday where a stove and refrigerator were stolen.
    Again it was a middle-aged man in a blue truck. The neighbors saw him. He pulled up into the grass in front of the house. We believe they came in through a back window because bars were against the back door and some windows. The neighbors thought the robbers were doing some work at the house. They did take some other miscellaneous things like a dolly, a microwave, etc. It was all about 9:00 a.m. It took the police a few hours to show up after calling 911 twice. Now every opening in the house has bars. Sad that we have to live this way!

  • Jacqueline_stoptheviolence All about trying to make the world a better place.

    WOW!!! My son was home and a guy ranged my doorbell and he was in a truck as well but the driver saw my son look out the window and pointed up to inform his partner that someone was home. My next door neighbor had his home broken into on Wed, two out of three where caught. These individual were males age range 18-21.

Concepts Charter School: The $1.0 million Hustle

This evening I attended the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council(CAPCC) meeting and representatives from Concept Schools : Charter School Management Company called me a racist because I questioned the origins of the company, while on the other hand they stated they are searching for African American teachers for the school to open at 85th Lafayette.

This evening I attended the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council(CAPCC) meeting and representatives from Concept Schools : Charter School Management Company called me a racist because I questioned the origins of the company, while on the other hand they stated they are searching for African American teachers for the school to open at 85th Lafayette. The school is scheduled to be opened in 8/14 on land owned by Fellowship M. B. Church where Charles Jenkins is the pastor. Jenkins is an advisor to the mayor. The school will pay the church $1.0 million yearly rent. But I'm told taypayers are not funding the building of the church there. They refused to answer why their schools in Columbus, OH are not performing any better than the public schools there.

Since I'm told there are legitimate candidates throwing their hats in the ring for Alderman of the 21st ward why haven't they said anything about this?

  • Racism by its proper definition is when a majority race is able to oppress and depress a minority race. Therefore, a black person or black people can't be racist, only white people can be racist because they are the majority race, for now. However, black people can discriminate, but not be a racist

  • B. K. Ray Chatham Area Resident

    Racism is the inherent belief that one's race is superior to other races. Anyone can be racist. You don't even have to be discriminatory to be racist, although they are often found hand in hand. It has nothing to do with population sizes. Or as Rogers and Hammerstein so eloquently put it in the stage play Annie Get Your Gun, 'Anything you can do, I can do better'.

Before a national chain or retailer decides to move into a community a lot of research and homework about that particular community goes into work in order for them to make their final decision to move in or not. Speedy Cash a title loan company has decided to move into the community of Chatham, in Chicago, Illinois on the corner of 87th and Cottage Grove. Speedy Cash did a very thorough analysis before moving in based on their marketing research. The research team considered the demographics, race, age, annual household income and level of education within the community. Speedy Cash decided that there was a great need for blacks in our community to have access and availability to “Speedy Cash” whenever desired. The underline assumption may have been the blacks don’t managed their money well, speed money on impulse, live beyond their means, don’t invest and plan properly, and don’t use banks in order to secure safe low interest loans. And as a result, these title loan companies, like Speedy Cash, feed and prey on the desperation of individuals who lack financial and economic resources to make wise financial decisions. It is quite interesting that Speedy Cash has decided to move in our community once they started see how the community has changed based on the census report. Please consider the facts; companies like Speedy Cash don’t come into black communities to help stabilize, uplift and empower people. Title Loan companies main objective is to make MONEY at the expense of black people. These title companies trap most blacks with the illusion that it’s more important to maintain their image rather than face their reality. The Speedy Cash research and marketing team know about the many problems blacks face today like, material poverty, illiteracy and dysfunctional families.

  • Thanks. My cousin received some money from Pay Day Loan. He used my other cousins and I as references, got the money and disappeared. We continued to get calls looking for him for some time but have not heard from him since then.
