    In two separate incidents, as many as 15 teens have stormed Chicago Transit Authority buses, attacked their victims and darted off with cell phones and other electronic devices, authorities said Tuesday. Both incidents were near the University of Illinois at Chicago campus, prompting city and campus authorities to issue community alerts. In the first attack, near West Roosevelt Road and South Loomis Street at about 11:40 p.m. Saturday, a victim was struck multiple times before the thieves ran off with his cell phone. About 25 minutes later, near South Racine Avenue and West 13th Street, a student said he was...

  • Why Young Black Males Are Not Graduating High School

    A new report from the Schott Foundation reveals that only 47 percent of black male students earn a high school diploma on time. Ironically, this report came out shortly after Judge Vaughn Walker ruled regarding Proposition 8 in California. If the statements on which Judge Walker based his ruling are “facts,” how do we explain what is happening educationally to boys in the black community where a large majority are growing up without fathers? Nancy Pearcey, in an article on American Thinker, identified certain “facts that Judge Walker claims are now established by the ‘evidence’ presented in his courtroom.” Those...

    TALLAHASSEE - State Sen. Frederica Wilson knows what a little TLC can do for at-risk black boys. As the founder of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project, the Miami Democrat has seen troubled teens go from life on the streets to college graduation. For the past two years, Wilson, a former Miami-Dade School Board member, has made it her mission to pass legislation aimed at helping more black men and boys. She's just one vote away from success. A bill to create ''The Council on the Social Status of Men and Boys'' has cleared the House and will likely...
