Considering the outcry over Confederate Statues and accusations of President Trump as a Racist, it's unbelievable that Black leaders in Illinois are endorsing a racist as the next governor of Illinois. But they are!

CHICAGO – Newly released FBI wiretaps captured Democratic Illinois governor candidate J.B. Pritzker making racially insensitive comments during a call with then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, including saying a popular lawmaker was the “least offensive” African-American to appoint to a Senate seat.

Pritzker, a billionaire businessman who’s considered the front runner in the March 20 primary, apologized on Tuesday during a news conference at a southern-style cafeteria on Chicago’s West Side where he was joined by African-American supporters.

On the recording, Pritzker suggested Blagojevich appoint Secretary of State Jesse White rather than other African-Americans, including Jesse Jackson Jr. or Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. He says doing so “covers you on the African-American thing.”

“Of all the African-Americans that I can think of, that are sort of like qualified ... and people will say ‘Oh – that’s, you know that’s, that’s a pretty good pick,’ the one that’s least offensive and maybe gets you the most because it gets you that secretary of state appointment is Jesse White.”

Later in the call, Pritzker is heard laughing as Blagojevich jokes about appointing Obama’s former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose comments dogged Obama’s 2008 campaign. Among other things, Wright said the U.S. brought on the Sept. 11 attacks by committing terrorism against others and that people should sing “God Damn America” rather than “God Bless America.”

Since that conversation took place, Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was sentenced to prison, where he is today. But before being found guilty of Federal Corruption charges, Governor Blagojevich did indeed appoint the "least offensive" African American, Jesse White, to be the Secretary of State for illinois. He is still in that position, and well-liked by most citizens of the state.

After the wiretaps were published, J.B. Pritzker summoned the media and African American supporters. Here's a short news segment highlighting today's Endorsement & Support Press Conference in Chicago.

OH..and remember Luis Gutierrez, the Illinois Congressman who stormed out of President Trump's State of the Union Address, because he "can't stand this racist President", and all of his "racist Republican supporters"? Guess who he publically endorsed for Illinois Governor. That's right... J.B. PRITZKER!

Politics and Power, takes precedence over morals, ethics, and integrity, with Chicago's African American leaders. They endorse a real racist, but falsely accuse the President of the United States as being racist. A President who has done more for Black America in ONE YEAR, than the prior President...African American, Barack H. Obama, did for them in 8 years.

Go figure...

youre quipping on morals and ethics, when you defend Trump no matter what he says or whom he defends or what he has done (stemming from race based lawsuits since the 80s and lawsuits from his casinos)

but it looks like this guy in the op said something about having a qualified AA appointed is enough to cover for diversity. and we bomb the sh!t out of countries that lean towards god damn America instead of god bless.

then you claim trump has done more for black Americas in one year than 8 years of obama? is that based on job numbers? dont those always fluctuate? or will it be Obama's fault when the numbers go down

Yeah, that is exactly what Illinois needs...an out of touch billionaire running it. I don't get broadcast TV, but I've even seen this guy on Netflix ads. His whole speel is "We will make Illinois a firewall against Trump". With the corruption, debt and taxes, seems like no one really wants to live in this hellhole.

abc7chicago.com...

A new study ranks Illinois as the No. 1 most moved from state last year. According to the 2017 National Movers Study by United Van Lines, more residents moved out of Illinois than into Illinois, with 63 percent of moves being outbound. In 2017, Illinois moved up one spot on the outbound list to No. 1, ranking in the top five for the past nine years.


Spring 2019, I'm outta here too. Texas bound!

Congratulations for having the initiative and means to get out of Illinois, David64! You'll be one of roughly 2,000 individuals and businesses that leave every single month.

I think you're focusing on the wrong person? Black Americans supporting racist Pritzker is the subject.

The good old days when something could be discussed without racism being the underlying factor. I miss those days here on ATS. But what can you do, the media and PTB tell us to jump and we ask how high.

This is why I can't take the crocodile tears from a lot of these leftist bojangling black politicians. Most of them are just pawns of the progressive political establishment. They basically buck dance for their white political masters and as a result they get put in positions of power. This is the hustle. Their job is to corral black votes, nothing more.

The do it by crying racism at every turn, but then conveniently find forgiveness when their liberal slave masters are exposed.

It is ironic because they are the real Uncle Toms and Coons they love to accuse others of being. They literally will sell out the community to tow the progressive political position

Well, look at it this way, racism creates identity, without it there would be no Black Americans, just Americans.

So...in order for Black Americans to get "political power", they need the society to somehow recognize them as a distinct identity group. That's where the racists come in, they give the Black men power through opposition and identification.

Everytime the KKK marches down the street, it "legitimizes" the Black American claims that discrimination is still a functioning part of the society, and so there is still a need for such a thing as "Black Awareness" and "Black Power" and "Black Politicians" to counter the oppression.

The day the KKK stops marching, is the day Black men lose all their power to hold others accountable for their socio-economic conditions.

I think we've collectively lost our damned minds.

Back in the day, we used to elect candidates who would better serve us.

Are they going to raise taxes or lower them?
Are they going to trim budgets or expand government?
Are they good for business or bad?
Good for retirees or bad?


We've turned into a Facebook nation where they get elected by not what they can contribute but by how many likes they get.

You Sir are a RACIST!!!

And you most certainly live up to your user name.

I find it hard for you to not be able to comprehend how your statement is worse than the individual you are admonishing......

They say Ignorance has no equal.
