I recently tweeted about the development of mass incarceration as read in The New Jim Crow. I was asked to Storify it.
This series of tweets articulates the formation of the new racial caste system instituted to subjugate Black communities with race-neutral policy language in the creation of mass incarceration after the eradiction of Jim Crow. The facts & data can be found in The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander.

This Is A Perfect Example Of Read Between the Lines For Some Of it. Some of these laws were passed as Blacks being the face of the problem because that's what America wanted to see. However the laws affected more white people than blacks. Nothing is perfect, nothing is fair, there are more to some of these tweets than are in the tweets. Welfare, drugs, & jail associated with Jim Crow is ....
These are the issues we control. Racial profiling puts a higher percentage of us in Jail but leave the drugs alone. The Welfare laws were mainly targeted at the so called white trash living in trailer parks but yes we were the face. They required people to work, even if it was minimum wage. Work somewhere & let your children see you work. I'm going to stop here as I would like to focus on education, afro-optimism, learning our real history and preparing a better future.

I love that Sam's Club in Evergreen Park area of Chicagoland has added organic foods.
You can easily the new organic items by looking  for the green signs. Great selection.

Burlington Coat Factory in Morgan Park Area of Chicago has a large selection. This store is quite large. The Baby Depot is very well stocked. I think they need more employees because it took 20 minutes for me to find someone to help. However, they were very helpful in taking me to find workout equipment.

The Greenstone United Methodist Church is literally made of green stones. It is such a unique sight that it stands out among the red brick row houses in the historic Pullman National Monument area. I love the architecture.

It's time to put America’s small businesses on the map
Posted: 25 Mar 2015 09:10 AM PDT
If you searched for “Dependable Care near Garland, TX” a few months ago, you would have seen a lot of search results—but not the one that mattered to Marieshia Hicks. Marieshia runs Dependable Care Health Service in Garland, and it was her business that was missing. But that all changed last month when she attended a workshop at the Garland Chamber of Commerce called Let’s Put Garland on the Map.

The workshop, run by our Get Your Business Online team, showed her how to use Google My Business—a tool that allows business owners to control the info listed about their business on Google Search and Maps—to help more people find Dependable. Marieshia added an updated phone number, hours of operation, and a description to her business listing. Within a few months, she had more customers come through the door and referrals from doctors who could reach her. This one simple adjustment made a difference. In Marieshia’s words: “It’s huge.” 

Huge might be an understatement. Four out of five people use search engines to find local information, like business hours and addresses, and research shows that businesses with complete listings are twice as likely (PDF) to be considered reputable by customers. Consumers are 38 percent more likely to visit and 29 percent more likely to consider purchasing from businesses with complete listings. Yet only 37 percent of businesses (PDF) have claimed a local business listing on a search engine. That’s a lot of missed opportunities for small businesses. 

With this in mind, our Get Your Business Online team set out in 2011 to help businesses like Marieshia’s get found online. We’ve gone to every state in the U.S. and worked with thousands of business owners to create free websites and update their Google Search and Maps listings. But there’s a lot more work to do to help businesses take advantage of the vast opportunities yielded by the web. So today, we’re introducing Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map, a new program to help 30,000 cities get their local businesses online.

If we want to help every business in the U.S., we need to reach businesses where they are. So this tailor-made program provides each city with a custom website where local businesses can find helpful resources, including a new diagnostic tool that shows businesses how they appear on Search and Maps, a step-by-step guide for getting online with Google My Business, and a free website and domain name for one year with our partner, Startlogic.

We’re also forming partnerships with local organizations—like chambers and small business development centers—and equipping them with free trainings and customized city materials to run workshops just like the one Marieshia attended in Garland. These local partners know the challenges for local businesses more than anyone—and they recognize the value of getting businesses online. After all, getting Dependable’s information online not only means the world for Marieshia, it means even more for the city of Garland. Complete business info can help generate economic value up to $300,000 a year for a small city or up to $7 million for a large one (PDF). So when our local businesses are online, our local economies benefit.

If you have a favorite local business—a day care, a dentist, a dry cleaner—show your support by helping them get their info online and on the map. Visit your city’s website at www.gybo.com to find out how you can get involved.

Let’s put our cities on the map!

These beautiful floral arrangements welcomed me on my most recent visit to Mariano's Evergreen Park. My favorite aisles in this grocery store are the global cuisine. I love the international flags and the sections marked by various countries.

Mariano's Near Eastside is a two level upscale grocery store. It has a wonderful little Sushi bar. I ordered the Dragon Maki and watched the chefs prepare it. The avocado, eel and shrimp Sushi Roll melt in your mouth.

Sam's Club is the bi-weekly shopping for us to pick- up the roasted chicken, organic carrots, organic spinach and lettuce. I like their prices for organic vegetables. I find Sam's Club to be reasonable compared to other stores. I love that Sam's Club in Evergreen Park area of Chicagoland has added organic foods. You can easily the new organic items by looking for the green signs. Great selection.
