Thursday is the last day candidates can turn in an application for Chicago's 33rd Ward aldermanic seat vacated by current alderman Dick Mell, who is stepping down after 38 years.
Jack Tawney: Black Muslims ran the slave trade in West Africa for several millennia. No one questioned it because slavery is fully sanctioned by the Quran and even encouraged. Slavery continues to this day in African countries such as Mauritania and Mali. The Prophet Mohammed himself owned and sold many slaves he captured in battle. He even forced many women and children into sexual slavery and gave them away as presents to foreign leaders he wanted to curry favor with. Two women he kept for himself as concubines because, apparently, his TWELVE other wives weren't enough for him and his bestial sexual appetites. Black Americans need look no further than their Black African brothers as the ones who sold them to Americans and Europeans. And "Allah" approved it.
