Katrina Pavlik (Board Chair), founder of Breastfeed Chicago, M.Ed., postpartum doula, certified lactation specialist. “My dream for Chicago is that it will become the most breastfeeding-friendly city in the country. Not only will new moms get the help and support they need from their health care providers, but they will benefit from an extensive breastfeeding-support network. Moms will be seen breastfeeding their children anywhere, anytime… and it will be considered a normal, natural way of feeding our children.”
In 2011, Katrina Pavlik created a closed Facebook group to invite
people to start a conversation about breastfeeding in Chicago. Within six
hours, it had grown to 400 people. "I saw a need for a community that
could discuss how to make Chicago more breastfeeding friendly. From the Facebook group, we expanded and added the Breastfeed, Chicago! blog and resource list.

What does the word pride mean to you? Do you support black businesses if so which ones and are you sure they are black owned? If you wanted to take your Queen out to dinner or take your family out to eat do you ever think to take them to an African restaurant or an Jamaican restaurant? For those of you that have kids how important is it to have black books that are written by blacks for them to read such as the black children books? Are we to eat meat if not where did that come from? What foods are we to eat and are we eating such as the Africans? Are we using products out of the store that are filled with chemicals for our skin and hair? How can we claim African pride if we don't know what it means to be an African? Name 5 things that you do on a day to day basis that would classify yourself as an African? Vibe with us to find out.
"While the center of the city has flourished tremendously, we need to see the same vitality in Chicago neighborhoods and promised to hire 1,000 new police officers.There really is a contrast between the central business district and the neighborhoods,the editorial board. "Over the past few years in particular the contrast has sharpened. ... The neighborhoods have been left behind."said Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia.
As the mayor sat in the middle, his four challengers sat feet away, repeating a theme that Emanuel was more focused on downtown, and not so much on Chicago neighborhoods.
"Emanuel closed 50 schools, he has closed the mental health clinics in Chicago," said William "Dock" Walls.
Ald. Bob Fioretti, 2nd, had a chance to make headlines. He promised me before the debate that he wouldn't "back down" from his allegations earlier in the week that the mayor all but killed an investigation into a strong-arm robbery of Rahm's teenage son.
A new poll released Monday by Ogden & Fry, conducting weekly polls for the mayoral race, it appeared Garcia could force a run-off election.The poll showed Emanuel with a clear lead and 39.5 percent of the vote, Garcia with 18 percent, Wilson with 11.1 percent and Fioretti with 7.5 percent.
The Victory Research poll of 806 “likely Chicago voters,” showed Emanuel leading with 36.4 percent of the vote. Fioretti was in second with 18.2 percent of the vote and Garcia in third at 12 percent. Wilson and William “Dock” Walls followed in fourth and fifth place with 8.6 percent and 0.9 percent,here was a margin of error of 3.45 percent.
The Bears (5-9) host the Detroit Lions (10-4) in a game that can help determine the NFC North race. The Lions are a game ahead of the Green Bay Packers, and can clinch the division today with a win and a Packer loss. The Bears close out their home portion of a very disappointing season by changing quarterbacks against one of the top rated defenses in the NFL. Jimmy Claussen will have his hands full with a Detroit front four led by the best defensive tackle in the league. Can the Bears look competative? Will the Lions keep their foot on the gas? We break it all down after the game.
For the Jedi Realist there is time for pride as well. I know for many this topic may hit a couple hot buttons as it pertains to the Jedi Realist and how pride is considered more of a vise then a virtue however once you hear this episode I am hoping that you take more of a open mind on what having pride means.

After decades of trying to rebound from the Black exploitation period, the crack cocaine era, the gansta rap era, the explosion of lesbianism, the explosion of "homosexuality", the explosion of miscegenation (interracial dating/marriage/sex), we are finally at the stage of creating an international movement for Afrikan people.
Black people have been crying out for a movement that was open to Black people from every walk of life for decades. In fact, not since the time of Marcus Mosiah Garvey have we had an opportunity to create an international platform for Black unity and self-improvement that crossed all religions, languages, political ideologies, etc . . . Also, not since the Garvey Movement have we had an international platform that was open to Black people; but closed to non-Black people.
And never before have we had a platform that was closed to Black integrationists and sexual perverts.
The Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM) is the most promising socio-political/economic platform in modern history. It is a platform that can capture the imagination of Afrikan people worldwide. This is a program you want to listen to.
Get ready. In 2015, things are going to change. We are going to have a platform that Black people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds can embrace. And with this platform, we will move mountains!

No, I'm no more racist than the next person. The fact is that the War between the states A had very little to do with slavery. In fact, it had nothing to with slavery until 1863 when Lincoln used it as a political agenda to save his sorry, dictator wannabe butt.
The War Between the States was about state rights. The north was imposing tariffs out the wazoo on the south. Illegal tariffs, I might add.
Sure, the south wasn't perfect; who is? All I'm saying is that they were the ones ultimately in the right in that 19th century fiasco and they took the flack for it because the winners write the history books. No the true history is written by warriors.
If you want to argue with me, please, argue intelligently. I loath hippies.
Just remember two things: 1) THE NORTHERN STATES HAD MANY SLAVES; 2)The emancipation proclamation claimed (because it had no legal authority) to free only the slaves in the "rebelling states." Northerners were free to keep their slaves until the 13th Amendment.
