Park Manor businesses featured on NextTV

The Chicago Urban League's NExtTV featured two of our businesses in a story about Carol Mosley Braun.

The former IL Senator is starting her own brand of healthy food products, called Ambassador Organics.

The Urban league showed businesses on 75th street to contrast "food deserts" with junk food vs. healthy food choices. Visuals of Big Sam were use as an example of "bad food" while SOul Vegetarian East/Eternity Juice Bar, with their outside fruit & vegetable displays, were considered examples of "good food" that is desired by many African Americans, who might otherwise travel to the suburbs (Something Ambassador Brown noticed)

(Neither store was mentioned by name, but anyone who passes by that street would instantly recognize the businesses)

What do you think? Unfair use of visuals? Or creative way to illustrate differences?
