    Support Black-Owned Businesses
    This holiday season, check out three Black-owned businesses on the South Side of Chicago—and support those in your own community.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered thousands of small businesses across the United States, but Black-owned businesses are closing twice as fast as others. That’s why this holiday season, we hope you’ll support Black-owned businesses in your community. Check out these three vibrant South Side establishments that are near the site of the future Obama Presidential Center in Chicago.

      “Clad in African-American portraiture and culture,
      South Shore Brew is in the heart of Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood and is known for its delicious lattes, heavenly pies, and rib-sticking sandwiches. Educators-turned-entrepreneurs Jennifer and Cory Barnes founded the independent coffee shop to serve up good coffee, but they also founded it to provide jobs for young people and to create a space that would make their neighbors proud.

      “In light of the pandemic, everything about our business is different. Our team. Our menu. Our pathway to our daily sales targets. In some ways, the experience of managing risks and adapting to change isn’t that new to us as small business owners. We will name that not having the neighborhood gather in the shop has been very tough on our morale, though, and we’re still exploring ways to account for it.

      Additionally, 2020 has been Critical Race Theory in real time.
      We are reminded that racism is inherently woven into every structure of our society.
      The persistent efforts of folks to maintain historical advantages over other groups is incredible, and shows up when we talk about business loans, grants, and access to capital.”
      —Jennifer and Cory Barnes

    Anthony Huber Was a Hero:
    Victim of Kyle Rittenhouse Remembered for Trying to Save Lives At Protest

    Joseph Rosenbaum was the first person Rittenhouse shot with his AR-15-style rifle.
    Joseph Rosenbaum was 36 years old. He had been released that same day from a Milwaukee hospital where he had been treated for a suicide attempt. He was unarmed when he was shot by Rittenhouse.
    Rosenbaum was shot four times, first in the groin, then in the hand and thigh as he faced Rittenhouse and then was shot in the head and in the back.

    After Rittenhouse killed Rosenbaum,
    several protesters who believed Rittenhouse was an active shooter begin chasing him.
    26-year-old Anthony Huber tried to disarm him by hitting him with what he had in his hand, his skateboard. Rittenhouse shot and killed him within seconds.

    Gaige Grosskreutz was the only person who survived being shot by Rittenhouse.”
    (https://www.democracynow.org/2021/11/22/anthony_huber_kyle_rittenhouse_verdict)
    —–Huber and 5′ 4″ Joseph Rosenbaum were unarmed.
    —-Rosenbaum also made an heroic attempt to stop Rittenhouse and his assault rifle.
    —-Both men must be honored.

    Claire McCaskill Tells The DOJ To Get Moving And Prosecute Trump

    “Move it.
    My message to the Department of Justice is get on it. Do not act like feds here.
    Act like state prosecutors, go fast.”

    Easley, politicus.usa:
    “We don’t know what the D.O.J. is doing, but all indications suggest that they are not investigating the Trump coup or the masterminds of the 1/6 attack on the Capitol.
    There is no indication that they are investigating Trump for election interference in Georgia.
    Time is of the essence, but there are too many Democrats in Congress and people at the Department of Justice who are treating the threat to democracy as business as usual.”

    For the unvaccinated, the GOP changes its tune on jobless aid

    In the spring,
    Republicans were desperate to end jobless benefits.
    Now, they’ve changed their minds — but only for the unvaccinated.

    “Republican officials around the country are testing a creative mechanism to build loyalty with unvaccinated Americans while undermining Biden administration mandates: unemployment benefits…. Florida, Iowa, Kansas and Tennessee have changed their unemployment insurance rules to allow workers who are fired or quit over vaccine mandates to receive benefits.” (Axios)
