    We think of Atlanta as the black metropolis but during the Great Migration, where did all the black Southerners go? A lot went to Chicago, and their descendants are still there. Or were. Cause it turns out, the “black exodus” is very real in the city of Chicago. Chicago's Cook Country had — and has — the largest population of black people of any county in the United States. But Cook County has shown noticeable dips in its black population within the past year or so. In fact, the Chicago Tribune reports that more than 12,000 black residents left the...

    Tyreke Smith, a player attending Ohio State’s football camp, made quite the impression when he showed up on the Buckeye’s campus. However, it wasn’t for anything he did on the football field. Instead, it was for what he wore. Smith reported to camp wearing a T-shirt that said, “I hope I don’t get killed for being black today.” Smith explained his decision to wear the shirt to ElevenWarriors, a site which covers Ohio State football. Smith said, “I decided to wear the shirt because I wanted to bring attention to the epidemic of blacks being killed at an alarming rate....

    In June 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down large parts of an Arizona state law intended to give local law enforcement the power to enforce federal immigration laws. The ruling in Arizona v. United States held that three sections of S.B. 1070 were pre-empted by federal immigration law. The Obama administration, which opposed the Arizona law, along with advocates for open borders, hailed the ruling, contending that the U.S. couldnÂ’t very well have 50 different immigration policies. Now, five years later the script has flipped. Many of the same folks who railed against a single state setting its own...

    The liberal Washington Post underlined its reputation as a liberal rag on Tuesday by burying the immigration status of a man who killed a Muslim teenager in suburban northern Virginia. They wear "Democracy Dies in Darkness" T-shirts and then put anything in the "darkness" that's inconvenient to their liberal agenda.  The front-page headline was "Police in Va. probe road rage in girl's killing. There was a picture of the victim in her hijab. The alleged assailant appeared in the third paragraph of a story by Justin Jouvenal and Julie Zauzmer:  The driver, Darwin Martinez Torres, a 22-year-old construction worker from...

    Seventeen-year-old Mark Anthony Doyle admitted that he stole a lot of pricey items from his employer's home recently. The missing goods included a Rolex watch, assorted electronics, and a drone... Doyle begged him not to press charges, so he gave him a choice, which was jail or Franklin's own brand of punishment. Doyle chose option B. "He wanted to be noticed, so that's what I decided on," he said. The attention getting outfit he chose included a pink tank top, shorts with Winnie the Pooh characters printed on the fabric, and a floppy beach hat. He also brought a sign...

    The 19-year-old man charged with attempted murder in the shooting of two young girls attending an end-of-year school picnic had flashed gang signs before gunfire erupted from the Jeep he was riding in, a prosecutor said Sunday. Raekwon Hudson, wearing a torn and tattered green sweatshirt, showed little reaction when Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered him to remain in jail. “No bail! Take him back!” Chiampas shouted to her courtroom sheriff’s deputies after voicing her disgust. “Young children in this city can’t participate in a picnic without being in fear of their lives because of gangbangers on the street...

    A noted art collector and philanthropist has sold a major painting for an eye-popping $165 million to raise money for criminal justice reform. Agnes Gund sold Roy Lichtenstein's 1962 work Masterpiece, reportedly to billionaire hedge fund manager and art collector Steve Cohen. The sale apparently took place months ago; an art industry newsletter reported on the transaction in January, but Gund would not confirm it. On Monday, The New York Times confirmed that the sale was real, noting that the painting becomes one of the 15 most expensive pieces of art known to have been sold. And the newspaper revealed...

    Jay Z is continuing his fight against the criminal justice system by helping men who have been incarcerated but can’t get release due to exorbitant bail bonds. In an essay for Time magazine, Hov attacks the “exploitative bail industry” for their practices that he deems are unfair to black and brown people. “If you’re from neighborhoods like the Brooklyn one I grew up in, if you’re unable to afford a private attorney, then you can be disappeared into our jail system simply because you can’t afford bail,” Jay writes. “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at...

    Caitlyn Jenner is facing criticism after joking that 'liberals can't even shoot straight' in reference to last week's gunfire at a Republican baseball practice. The former Olympian made the comment while chatting during a question and answer session on Friday at the College Republican National Committee's convention in Washington, D.C. The event was closed to the press, but a roughly 20 minute portion of her appearance was captured on video and shared to the College Republican Federation of Virginia's Facebook page. The 67-year-old was asked by the moderator during the dinner about the shooting that critically wounded House Majority Whip...

    A businessman drove himself to the hospital after a stranger slashed his throat Sunday afternoon in Petersburg. Bill Sizemore said he was visiting the future site of his planned mini-golf and go-kart business on South Crater Road when he saw a man standing in the woods nearby. Sizemore, who prides himself on helping those in need, went to check on the man. "When I get to about within 15 feet of him, I ask him, if he's OK," Sizemore said. "As I reach over, walk over and start pointing to the lake, he reaches behind me and cuts me, cuts...

    There has so far been no word from President Trump’s administration on whether the White House intends to host such an event this year. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reportedly already said the State Department will break with recent tradition and not host a Ramadan reception, as it has done nearly annually for two decades. White House officials did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

    “[I]t’s a delicate thing because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside at the moment?”

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    If you are in a country illegally, breaking the laws of the country you are in, shouldn’t you be afraid of being found and deported? Well that’s what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief Thomas Homan said Tuesday in response to a growing cry from liberal activists complaining about ICE agents enforcing federal law. Anyone in the country without authorization can be arrested at any time. And those who have been ordered deported by judges and who did not show up for hearings (which happened countless times during the Obama years) must be removed from the country if those laws...
