Here are three stories the mainstream media tried to ignore this week:
OFFICIALS IN THE BIG APPLE have removed the words “ladies and gentlemen” from audio announcements on the city’s MTA subway system. Why? Because it’s “OFFENSIVE!”
According to the do-gooders controlling New York City, the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” is a trigger for anyone who doesn’t identify as a man or a woman.
These new MTA rules are just the latest example of a well-meaning measure to promote political correctness that does nothing but waste taxpayer dollars and distract from the pressing issues affecting millions of New Yorkers every day...
LAST WEEKEND, at least 18 shootings occurred in Chicago. The weekend before that, five people were killed and 24 others wounded in city shootings.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the U.S., yet it continues to be plagued with deadly shootings.

Rachel Dolezal, a white woman in Washington state, came under scrutiny when she revealed she is transracial. For years, Dolezal fooled people into thinking she was a black woman:
She tanned her skin, permed her hair, and even led the NAACP Spokane chapter until the public found out she is white.
Dolezal's story was all over the media, but Ja Du's isn't getting the same attention...
