African American life is obviously being expressed as something America can do without or holds no value, lets show America just how valuable we are. We need to continue to bond together and fight in numbers and Monday September 8th, TOMORROW, will be another chance to tell America its time to cut the crap, not only are we here but we belong here!

Ross Dress 4 Less along with several other retailers will be opening doors soon (if they haven’t opened already) at MidCity’s “Midtown Crossing.” The picture above are couple of the new retailers at Midtown Crossing.
LA’s Most Polluted Neighborhoods
A new interactive map released by the California Environmental Protection Agency shows some of LA’s most polluted areas, and don’t be too surprised but South LA has made the list. According to Curbed LA, the poorest and “Hipster” parts of LA seem to be the most polluted. Not sure wat exactly defines a hipster, to my knowledge it was a rich kid that rock skinny jeans a tee shirt and fedora and lives in a urban part of the city so guess that doesn’t come at too much of shock to me. Inglewood Hills (North along La brea), Windsor Hills, Baldwin Hills, View Park, and Ladera seem to be ok though, along with MidCity and its surrounding communities. Morningside in Inglewood and Baldwin Hills flat land not looking so good though. The new tool assigns a score to every zip code based on a range of factors–11 types of pollution, the effects of pollution, and the vulnerability of residents–to determine where the state EPA should direct funding.

Large MidCity Purchase
Yes, LA has a Midtown, its actually called MidCity, and even though its border by affluent neighborhoods such as West Adams District, Lafayette Square, Victoria Park, and Hancock Park, MidCity is slightly ratchett. Well that might be changing soon, the Midtown Shopping Center Associates (MTSCA) has acquired the land under Midtown Shopping Center plus two adjacent properties totaling 14.56 acres for $42.5 million from Catellus Development Corp. based out of Denver. Well hopefully this means MidCity will spruce it up a bit.
