There's a really cute Airbnb in Clarksdale. I could fly home to read on 9/25, bring my mom to Memphis to meet up with my aunt, and then drive to Clarksdale to visit historical sites, cemeteries, and record interviews with relatives. Then it's back to Chicago for @20x2Chi on 10/6.
My auntie asked me ONE question about the book and I blabbed about a century of our history for about 30 minutes. It feels *so* good to know that my family cares.

Well, Rahm is right. Obama said the same thing to blacks when he was running for president. Only difference Obama was liked. Rahm isn't. Rahm Emanuel under increasing fire for linking Chicago violence and morals in minority neighborhoods #FoxNews
The liberal social culture of the left has caused the lack of morals in many black households. History will show blacks are in general conservatives but liberal programs creating dependency and taking away pride has killed it. #WalkAway
Blacks would do so much better if they #WalkAway from the Democratic plantation of oppression and dependency.

Those covering-up for these criminal actors deserve to be held criminally accountable as well. ei: Mainstream Media Censorship
@realDonaldTrump offered to send help= Rahm Emanuel said NO!
Chicagoan's NEED to reverse the STRICT anti-gun laws, then learn proper use, care, & safety then... USE THOSE GUNS to protect themselves from criminals INCLUDING their leaders. That is exactly what the 2nd Amendment was designed for!
