National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial hailed today's Supreme Court decision outlawing non-unanimous jury verdicts as a step out of the nation's Jim Crow past. "Non-unanimity rules were nothing more than naked white supremacism," said Morial, who advocated for the constitutional amendment that outlawed the practice in Louisiana in 2018. Only Oregon continued to allow it. "They were devised specifically to deny Black citizens a voice in the justice system. This decision wa...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Louisiana island that provides a crucial nesting ground for pelicans and other seabirds is being restored to nearly its former size after decades of coastal erosion and the devastating blow of an offshore oil spill 10 years ago. About 6,500 brown pelicans and 3,000 smaller seabirds cram their nests every summer onto Queen Bess Island, which shrank from 45 acres (18 hectares) in 1956 to about 5 acres (2 hectares) by 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon spill fouled its beaches with oily gunk. Though barely a blip of an island off the Gulf of Mexico in Barataria Bay, Queen Bess plays an outsize role as one of Louisiana's largest rookeries for brown pelicans, supplying prime real estate for up to a fifth of the state's nests. It's also where the pelican, the Louisiana state bird, was reintroduced in the 1960s after pesticides had killed off the entire population. Loss of coastal wetlands and other problems have crowded the big birds into far fewer colonies than they had two decades ago, according to Todd Baker, the biologist supervising restoration work for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. The number of colonies has fallen 54 percent since 2010, he said. The $18 million to restore Queen Bess Island and funds for future monitoring and upkeep flow from a $20 billion settlement that the federal government and the five Gulf Coast states reached with energy giant BP PLC for environmental damage from the 2010 spill. The offshore explosion and fire that year on BP's leased drilling rig killed 11 people. The well spewed more than 100 million gallons (378 million liters) of oil into the water over 87 days. When the oil reached the island about 45 miles (72 kilometers) south of New Orleans, brown pelicans and other birds could be seen struggling, their wings weighed down by the black muck....
