Charlottesville

A new measure has been introduced in Illinois as a response to the deadly summer rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. La Shawn Ford, a House Democrat from Chicago - is the sponsor of what is called the "Abolition of Confederate Symbols Act." He says no monument or image honoring the Confederate States should be on public property. 

A.D. Carson says he was asked by counter-protestors to speak out in response to the white-supremacist, "alt-right" and neo-Nazi organizers who had descended on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.  Carson, who gained international attention for earning a Doctorate with a thesis in the form of a hip hop album, has been settling into his new home there.
