Many people love living in Chicago. We have the best pizza beside New York City. We cannot forget about the great musicians from Chicago: Common, Kanye West, Syleena Johnson and Lupe Fiasco. Despite the many things the city can take pride in, some possess a sense a fear about Chicago with the increase in violence. Watching the nightly news in Chicago has become depressing.

Kalisha Madden, Raven Kimbrough, Jahessye Shockley and Mishell-Nicole Green are just a few of the African American women who have gone missing recently, and received no major media attention.

We all have those times where we are constantly questioning our relationship with our boyfriend. Why won’t you talk to me? What did I do wrong? Can we please talk? Pick up the phone when I call! When you get no answer from him, you call your best friend. You know your friend, the one you always run to when you’re having relationship issues. Sometimes she will tell you the truth and other times she’ll sugar coat her words. By sugar coating, she’s not telling you the truth, only what you want to hear.
Church plays a big part in the African American community. When you are a child, your parents take you to church every Sunday and Bible study on Wednesday nights. Church has always been the place to bring people together.
For as long as I can remember, there has always at least one conflict within the African American community: skin tone. As much as we may not want to admit it, this conflict still exists.

The worst part is that many African American women attend these “parties.
Each year, millions of schools get budget cuts. Some schools have to let some teachers go and drop after school programs. Many parents find themselves fighting with the school boards, trying to keep their children’s school open. If some schools are failing with grades and test scores, many school officials will say the school needs to make some changes or close the school down. Chicago, New York, Texas and Los Angeles are the popular city that experience large budget cuts each year.
The 2008 presidential election will always be known as a historical election. I remember the day I was standing in Grant Park in Chicago, waiting to see who the next president of the United Stated would be.
