What do actress Danai Gurira and film producer Sidra Smith have in common?

Besides the fact that they're both beautiful Black women, these trailblazers

also traded in long locks for a bald head. Gurira's big chop was for

the upcoming Black Panther movie while Sidra's signature look happened

after a years-long obsession with hair extensions. So are Beauty Salons

about to have Bald Head blues?

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson testified in Springfield in favor of new gun legislation,

part of which is written and named in honor of slain 18th District Commander Paul Bauer. Many expressed

who Chicagoans are heavy in mourn with the loss Commander Paul Bauer. Commander Bauer

stood for the highest ideals of the police department and the city. Mayor Rham Emmanuel said his death

is a tragic reminder of the dangerous duty the men and women of our police department accept to ensure

the safety of us all. I ask every Chicagoan to keep Commander Bauer, his family, his friends and the

entire Chicago Police Department in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time”.

Rep. Ford Urging

Governor to Reopen

Vehicle Emission Sites Illinois

State Representative La Shawn K. Ford is questioning

if the Illinois emission program is still useful.

On November 1, 2016, several vehicle emissions

facilities closed in Chicago to reduce costs and streamline

operations. Currently, this leaves Chicago residents

driving to suburban cities defeating the purpose of cutting


“This is absolutely a step backward in reducing the

city's air pollution problem,” said Ford. “Many concerned

citizens, including myself, wonder if the goal to

reduce costs turned into a costlier toll on our environment.

Emission testing is designed

to protect the environment and not

contribute to the problem.”

The Federal Clean Air Act Amendments

of 1990 requires emissions

testing programs in large, metropolitan

areas which do not meet

specific federal air quality standards.

In Illinois significant progress

has been made, levels of air

pollution in Chicago and Metro-

East St. Louis areas still exceed

these standards.

“The closures of all sites in Chicago

defeats the purpose of reducing

emission, “said Ford. “Illinois'

emission program seems to contribute to the carbon

emissions that we are trying to prevent by having Chicago

residents drive farther to get tests done.”

According to the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Law

of 1995, The agency shall establish a program to begin

February 1, 2007, to reduce the emission of pollutants by

motor vehicles. The Illinois EPA’s study concluded that

for residents of Chicago, many would drive on average

an additional four miles. This is a significant change that

will add to vehicle emissions, in direct contrast to the

purpose of the Agency’s directive.

Ald. Sophia King hosted a

town hall to discuss the

Michael Reese Development of Amazon

Community input.

said it will bring to any city and employment and

contracting opportunities directly with Amazon,

and its the ripple effect to the Bronzeville community.

the United States are

now in a state of

"outrage fatigue." The

scandalous behavior of

the White House, the

destructive policies and

the torrent of tweets by

Donald Trump are

numbing many people.

After all, the deluge of

dishonor, hypocrisy

and pernicious public

policies can feel overwhelming.

Emil Jones Jr. sadi J.B. Pritzker has shown “what he

really thinks about black folks” Saying “He called me

"crass," and referred to Secretary of

State Jesse White as the "least offensive"

candidate to replace

Barack Obama. You see, he still

thinks that Jesse White is offensive,

but if he is forced to choose an

African-American, Jesse White is

least offensive to him. JB showed his true colors again

four years later, when he called President Obama

“mediocre”. Voters want an alternative to candidates

who talk about African-American leaders as if we were pawns in their political

insider enterprise.
