    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Furious tenants of a public housing project in the Bronx were pleading for help Monday, saying their buildings are overrun with rats — and they’re not kidding. They have the video to prove it. But we should warn you, the pictures are not for the squeamish. “I’m traumatized,” tenant Veronica Martinez told CBS2’s Marcia Kramer. You’d be traumatized, too, if you had the same kitchen as Martinez. Rats. An entire family of rats, some as big as cats, have taken over, hopping in the sink, into pots and pans. It’s absolutely gut wrenching. “I should never...

    “Warszawskie dzieci, pójdziemy w bój” (“Warsaw’s children, we go to fight”) Zero Hour is commemorated at 1700 hrs local time every August 1st with one-minute’s howl of air-raid sirens to mark the start of the insurrection. There is nothing new under the sun and there already was a Generation Zyklon. No, they didn’t gas anyone, but they fought like warriors to take back their city. And they won — seven decades later, the city belongs to them. There is special lore about the kids who took part in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. Boys as young as ten fought as riflemen,...

    When Beyonce and Jay Z are performing, all eyes are glue to the stage. Unless, that is, Barack Obama is rocking out behind you. Fans were delighted to spot the former U.S. president unleashing his best dad moves with wife Michelle beside him in a private booth at the FedExField in Landover, Maryland on Saturday. Throwing their arms in the air during Jay's track N****s in Paris, the former first couple were on their feet and clearly loving every moment as their old friends lit up the stage.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Denmark's center-right government wants to double the punishment for crimes like vandalism and theft committed in areas with larger number of immigrants and higher unemployment, in an attempt to eliminate so-called "parallel societies" by 2030.

    MARYSVILLE, Wash. - A pregnant woman wearing a crop top says a North Sound restaurant denied her service -- because her baby bump was showing. The server said the restaurant has a "no shoes, no shirt, no service" policy that’s linked with health code regulations and anyone wearing a crop top would have been asked to cover up. But the customer doesn’t buy it. Charisha Gobin says she stopped by "Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Marysville with her family Sunday night, in a black crop top T-shirt and a long skirt. “The waitress/bartender stopped us and said, 'I'm sorry, you can’t...

    AN OPEN LETTER TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY The title is somewhat misleading. This essay is specifically written for young black Americans who believe or have absorbed the message that the ghetto and life on the margin are their destiny, that success is unattainable, and that dreams are only for white people. Before you are halfway through the essay, many of you will be condemning and ridiculing me as simplistic, unrealistic, and idealistic. I agree. But you ignore my message at your own peril. It is very demanding. Anything worth having is very demanding. Your friends may ostracize you and ridicule...

    An Alabama police officer has been fired after sharing what many consider to be racist memes, including on about Michelle Obama, on his personal Facebook page. Talladega Police Officer Joel Husk was terminated on Wednesday from the police department in the city, Talladega City Manager Patrick Bryant said. Husk shared a meme on his page showing pictures of Melania Trump with the words, 'Fluent in Slovenian, English, French,Serbian and German' and another photo of Michelle Obama with the words 'Fluent in Ghetto.' Another post Husk, 37, shared showed a photo from the Facebook group 'Last American Patriots'. That post showed...

    Until that moment on Fox News, Jessica Disu hadn't considered herself a police abolitionist. But on July 11, she was on national television, surrounded by 29 other people convened by Megyn Kelly to discuss the recent killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and several Dallas police officers. "I was under the impression that it would be a robust and productive conversation, even though it was Fox News," says 27-year-old Disu, who identifies herself as a "humanitarian rap artist and peace activist" and is involved with various organizations serving youth on the south side. She prepared her message before going on...

    For some reason, playing a song in which 50 percent of the lyrics are the exact phrase “smack my bitch up” for an accused domestic abuser didn’t quite sit right with people, leading the Cubs to issue the following formal apology: "The selection of this track showed a lack of judgment and sensitivity to an important issue. We have terminated our relationship with the employee responsible for making the selection and will be implementing stronger controls to review and approve music before public broadcast during our games."

    A Queens teacher won a $125,000 city settlement for injuries caused by out-of-control teens who also harassed her racially and sexually while school leaders did nothing to stop it, she says. Kathy Perez suffered five herniated discs in her back, two in her neck and a torn meniscus in two incidents at MS 72 Catherine and Count Basie in Jamaica about 18 months apart.

    President Obama was a tough act to follow, but Wilmore reminded some of Stephen Colbert with his audience-unfriendly jokes. Tonight, Larry Wilmore proved exactly why he was the perfect choice to host President Barack Obama’s final White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Even if the crowd of journalists in attendance didn’t seem to agree. More than ever before, the president was an impossible act to follow. Not only did Obama deliver a slew of jokes at Donald Trump’s expense but he also presented an elaborate Curb Your Enthusiasm-style video that included an epic John Boehner cameo. Wilmore began by welcoming the...

    Melania Trump gazes out of her living room window over the gold tapestry of New York's Central Park. It's late November, and from her spacious apartment, which occupies the top three floors of the 68-story Trump Tower, in Midtown Manhattan, the 843 acres nestled among the gray sea of buildings below seem small, like a wet towel left on the bathroom floor by a teenager. Melania, 45, dressed in a pink cap-sleeved Antonio Berardi sheath dress and matching Louboutin heels, nods over her shoulder grimly. "That building," she says, gesturing toward another skyscraper under construction at the corner of 57th...

    Today I went to Mass, the first time since I heard my pastor compare Pope Francis to the prophet Amos, favorably. Today was also the day the hectoring began for "Beyond Sunday", the latest rebrand of the Archdiocesan Expansion Fund. Those of us who remember the pre-1968 Church might recall a vibrant Catholic presence in the black neighborhoods of North St. Louis. A sizable minority were Roman Catholic, attracted by the ability to send their children to Corpus Christi, Mercy, DeAndreis, Laboure, or even McBride, St. Marks or Rosati-Kain high schools, keeping them out of the street life at a...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- A South Carolina school district banned a school resource officer pending an investigation after a video surfaced Monday showing him tossing a student across a classroom floor. The video has since gone viral. The incident, captured on cellphones of at least two students, occurred at Spring Valley High School in Columbia. School officials and sheriff's deputies said they are investigating what happened. Deputy Ben Fields has been placed on administrative duties as authorities investigate his handling of the female student, Lt. Wilson said. The video shows Fields asking a girl to rise from a classroom desk. Another...

    Walmart's stock took a steep drop as the company announced that it was expecting lower profits. There are a number of problems Wal-mart has, such as its website and fulfillment not being quite as good as Amazon.com, but Wal-mart is primarily a brick and mortar store, not an internet company. The basic problem as I see it is that middle class people are afraid to shop there. If you look at reviews on Yelp one of the most common words used to describe Wal-mart is "ghetto". There is even a Yahoo question on this very topic: Why is every Walmart...
