On August 1, 2013, South Street Journal (SSJ) became Chicago Street Journal (CSJ) . For the new readers, you will see just a taste SSJ from the old days. For the older readers, you may recognize some of the old faces and headlines from the past.

February 2 March 2018 2017 ChicagoStreetJournal 2018 Candidate's Questioner Chicago is a diverse city with a rich history and it deserves a robust, local paper that provides stories about local people and the community issues that inspire and create anticipation for readers. Although African American interest is still at the core of what we cover, these questions are still for a city-wide platform to provide our readers with the creditable work in partnership with the office you seek. 1. What one skill makes you the most qualified candidate for this elected office? 2. Do you agree with Governor Candidate Chris Kennedy and Cook Commissioner Richard Boykin that there has been strategic moving of African Americans in the City of Chicago to any extent? If so, please provide examples. If not, can you explain the disenfranchisement of African Americans in Chicago? 3. Would you support legislation of the Black Wall Street platform as in HB bill 27 [October 14, 2009] SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 432? 4.a How would you describe your own working style with the political party you represent and with the opposition party? 4.b What is the difference between a conservative and liberal? 5. If any, what one item do you agree with on President Donald Trump's agenda and what do you disagree on? 6. If (re)elected, what is the first thing you would tackle in this office? 7. Why do candidates use the term “representing the middle class” as opposed to the lower income persons? 8. Are you in favor of parity based on a geographical racial area in contract procurement and how would you address parity? 9. Are you in favor of term limits or not? If so, for which offices? 10. Do you believe that the Obama Foundation should have a Community Benefits Agreement? Thank you for taking the time to respond.

CHILDREN - 14K empty shoes outside the US Capitol on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, to represent every child killed with a gun since the Sandy Hook Massacre. If we truly cared, would this be a news item? FREE CLOTHING - Everyone is Welcome and Everything is Free! The Lincoln Boutique Free Store located at 6454 S. Champlain in Chicago is inviting everyone to stop by on Saturdays from 1 PM to 4 PM.

Newly elected Mayor Rufus Davis of Camilla, GA was locked out of his own office for two years. And, if you visit the Mayor’s Facebook page, you can see the Civil War being played out in GA, on a smaller scale, as it is across our nation. FREE BOOK GIVEAWAYS – Are you a published author? Great!

SOUTH AFRICA – Newly elected South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced his intent to redistribute land, now owned by white farmers. A November audit showed that 73% of farmland was still owned by whites, two decades after the end of apartheid. A 1913 land act stripped most Black South Africans of their rights to own land. (Similar to the laws enacted by the Europeans upon the African and Native Indians on this continent, denying access to the same resources, the reason for continued generations of poverty.)
