      If you are looking for a place to travel then I suggest that Chicago, IL is not one place that you ever visit because if you do I think your life will forever be changed in a negative way. My sister went to a conference for school that was held in the city and they (the school) paid for her to stay in a very nice hotel.

      Well, she had to make a presentation the next morning and she needed some transparencies and so she called the front desk and asked where she could get them and she was told by the clerk that there was a Staples store a block down and so she decided to leave the hotel and go to the store.

      When she started to walk to


      the store she was approached by a women who told her that she should not be walking in the street because she was not welcome there since she was not black and she went ahead and tried to walk to the store anywhere.

      Keep in mind she really needed the transparencies and so she had to keep walking, well as she walked furhur some guys from across the street started to curse her out and call her all types of racial names and also the B word.

      She continued down the street but she could not find the store, at this point cars started to drive by next to her and began throwing glass bottles but most of them missed her.

      Finally one almost hit her and broke near her foot ...


      • which caused her a throbbing pain, she hobbled into a nearby store and asked them when the Staples was and they told her that she was far from where she needed to be and that she was going in the wrong direction.

        She started to run back in the other direction past everyone throwing bottles at her and cursing at her and she attempted to find the store.

        Well, she decides that she is better off hiding in the store which she did for a while until one of her friends called her that had gone along on the trip and offers to call her a cab.

        She finally gets to the store after the cab comes only to find out that the store was closed.

        By this time her foot

        was bleeding and she found that there were several shads of glass in the bottom of her foot which was now causing her a lot of pain.

        Because of this she had to go to the emergency room because she was having trouble standing up which would have made it hard for her to make her presentation.

        After she got out of the hospital she did not go out of her hotel room for the other two days that she was there.

        She was scared because of the way she was treated based on the way she looked, she was dressed up and wearing work clothing and they seemed to be offended by a women who was not black that actually looked like a professional and because of that they assaulted her.
