I contacted a Chinese man named Bo renting the "living room" in a 2 bedroom apartment at 2214 Sherman in Evanston. It is illegal to rent a room for such purposes in Evanston. Further, Bo is discriminating against non-Chinese people. It helps if you are a woman and Chinese when you meet him. This is also illegal to discriminate on sex and race. Here is his ad on CraigsList:
