    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Mothers who give birth in areas with higher concentrations of African-Americans are less likely to get breastfeeding support on maternity wards than mothers in other communities, a new study shows. Breastfeeding provides well-documented health benefits to infants and their mothers. But African-American women are about 16 percent less likely to nurse their newborns than white women, according to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    The NFL was roundly criticized for suspending Ravens running back Ray Rice two games under the personal conduct policy after Rice was charged with assaulting his then-fiance and current wife during an incident at an Atlantic City hotel in February. The league was also criticized for being tone deaf in their response to the criticism, but it seems someone in the league office was paying attention.

    Antonio Smith, 9 years old, was assassinated the other day. He was Chicago's youngest fatal shooting victim this year. He was shot at least four times and fell in a backyard on the South Side. And when I went out there on 71st and Woodlawn less than 24 hours after he was murdered, here's what I didn't see: I didn't see protesters waving their hands in the air for network TV cameras. I didn't see the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson playing their usual roles in the political race card game.

    Antonio Smith liked to tease girls and show off his dance moves in front of his buddies. He loved playing football. Pretty much like any 9-year-old boy.. Wednesday afternoon, Antonio was found in the backyard of a house in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side, shot in the chest, hands and arms. He died an hour later at Comer Children's Hospital, where his cousins were at a loss to explain why anyone would want to gun down the third-grader.

    Earlier Wednesday Mike Ditka made the news with his brash comments in favor of the Washington Redskins keeping their controversial nickname.. Now it's time to meet his polar opposite, at least as far as this issue is concerned. Mike Carey, a recently hired rules analyst for CBS Sports, spent 19 seasons as an NFL referee but did not officiate a Redskins game for nearly all of the last eight years of his career. That was by request — because he disapproves of their name.

    Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms believes that Colin Kaepernick receives unfair criticism. Simms got a chance this week to ask Kaepernick why that might be and Kaepernick says it comes down to two things: 'stereotypes' and 'prejudice.' In case you haven't noticed, Kaepernick isn't shy about showing off his tattoos. The 49ers quarterback also likes to wear his hat backwards -- and he thinks both those things are part of the reason why he's unfairly criticized.

Writing in a lengthy Instagram caption, Arenas attacked Sharpton’s reaction to the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb and the riots that are ongoing in the wake of the incident. Arenas’ rant pleaded with Brown’s family to leave Sharpton out of their planned protest, saying that “caesar the monkey” or a “Planet of the Apes” character could get the family better justice.

Blackhawks fans recently have been voicing their opinions about the song and a few other Blackhawks practices they deem sexist. The push for change picked up after Marissa Miller, 31, of Chicago, started gathering online signatures Aug. 6 for a petition for the Blackhawks to treat their female fans the same as their male ones.

The current sports Gasbag, and former political gadfly, said as much during a Wednesday rant on his late night ESPN2 show. Boiling his melodramatic soliloquy down to a few words, the front page was too graphic for him. It offended his sensibilities.

The president was on vacation on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

    San Fransico-based T-shirt company Headline Shirts has taken full advantage of the Redskins name controversy by introducing a new line of shirts based on the team logo. But instead of a Native American, a redneck, complete with raccoon tail and mullet -- is prominently featured. (No idea if this violates trademark law, but if it does, and a judge does not overturn the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's ruling canceling the Redskins' trademark registration, there's nothing the team would be able to do about it.)

The chains thrived during the recession as the number of working Americans living in poverty increased by nearly 40%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The stores appealed to cash-strapped shoppers with bargain-basement prices and locations that were closer to their homes than many Wal-Mart supercenters. The smaller package sizes of everyday items like laundry detergent and cereal fit into the budgets of consumers living paycheck to paycheck.
