CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Like Rauner, AG Madigan snubs Trump in Washington – Kim Geiger  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps can/will hint/imply/argue/shout that a) Rauner represents all Republicans in Illinois and b) because Rauner snubs Trump, all Republicans in Illinois snub Trump.  What do the following have to say about that: your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, the officers of your township, ward, and/or county Republican Party organizations, your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC), the IRP officers, the IRP National Committeeman and Committeewoman, the Lieutenant Governor, your Republican Congressman, the Republican State Senate Leader, the Republican State House Leader, your Republican State Senator and Representative, and the Republicans who represent you in your municipality, township/ward, and county?  What if the IRP SCC passed a resolution calling for Rauner to work with Trump?)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Staying home from New Trier – Shia Kapos
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/kapos-making-political-oratory-great-again/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: New Trier High School’s seminar day examining civil rights has gone off without a hitch. No numbers yet on attendance, but the auditorium seating was nearly filled. At least one family, however, chose not to send their student to school. Robert Blackwell Jr., a Chicago entrepreneur and friend and supporter of President Barack Obama, says his daughter stayed home. While the school took some heat from conservative parents who thought the curriculum leaned too far left, Blackwell worried the content just wasn’t appropriate. He lives on the South Side and his daughter lives on the North Shore with her mom. Blackwell said negative images were being reinforced, and he pointed to a session called “Blackenomics 101,” based on a rap song that uses the N-word. “This session tells white teenagers that blacks need to express themselves through vulgarity and violence,” he said. Blackwell is chairman of EKI-Digital, which helps companies monetize technology investments, and he’a chairman of Killerspin table-tennis company. Keynote speakers were Colson Whitehead, who wrote “The Underground Railroad,” and Andrew Aydin, who with U.S. Rep. John Lewis, co-authored “March.”)

— U-46 school board members debate acknowledging students’ racial identity – Madhu Krishnamurthy  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Whites demonize, denigrate, and condemn Whites as being racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things.  Anti-Whites especially demonize, denigrate, and condemn Whites who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  Ever-increasingly, anti-Whites call for Democrats and for RINOs to get rid of Whites. To postpone/avoid being gotten rid of by anti-Whites, more and more and more Whites are becoming anti-White. Should I write a book about the leading White anti-Whites in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, in Illinois, and in America?)
