Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) is resisting calls from both Republicans and Democrats for her to resign after allegations of racial discrimination emerged.
Mayor Lightfoot was exposed for only granting interviews to journalists who were of African-American or Hispanic origin. Her racial discrimination was exposed by a Hispanic journalist working for the Chicago Tribune.
Instead of at the very least apologizing and promising to reform, Lightfoot doubled down on her disgusting racism. Institutional racism is real, and Democrats like Mayor Lightfoot propagate it.
Lightfoot said in a letter released on Wednesday, “In looking at the absence of diversity across the City Hall press corps and other newsrooms, sadly it does not appear that many of the media institutions in Chicago have caught on and truly have not embraced this moment. I have been struck since my first day on the campaign trail back in 2018 by the overwhelming whiteness and maleness of Chicago media outlets, editorial boards, the political press corps, and yes, the City Hall press corps specifically.”
Americans shocked by this open racism and sexism need to realize that the Democrat Party has long embraced this backward thinking.
Racism and sexism are perfectly acceptable as long as it is targeting the right groups. Mayor Lightfoot is going nowhere, and like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, is a reminder that the Democrat Party is a rotten institution.
