Here’s A Big Billboard That Says Dick In Downtown Chicago
The South Side has seen plenty of loss in the last year. Twenty out of the 49 Chicago Public Schools were closed in this part of the city. It also sees a higher proportion of gun deaths and shootings. Many of these neighborhoods are starved for economic resources as well. These facts are all interrelated and help to explain why a family like Jaheim Benton’s would be homeless.

The politicians who shared in Jackie Robinson West’s win don’t want to acknowledge their part in preventing any of the above.

In the same way that electing one black man President doesn’t make racism go away, sending one South Side baseball team to the Little League World Series doesn’t alleviate the problems of poverty, violence and homelessness in the neighborhoods of Chicago. But it definitely shows what happens when you provide the right tools to combat them.

The interns made out like working in public view was no big deal.

“Like every now and then we’ll look up when there’s like people peering through between the signs, trying to figure out what’s going on,” Tori Dubray said.

That might be because they applied for the job — or the right word may be “auditioned” for it — in public.

“This year’s internship program was entirely cast and recruited through Instagram,” said Jason Peterson, who runs the 500-person office and designed the internship.
