I'm not sure if she's trying to shield herself from the media, due to Crime being the #1 news story every day. Or, if she genuinely doesn't like journalists who aren't Black or Brown.

CHICAGO — To mark the second anniversary of her swearing-in, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced Tuesday that she would only grant one-on-one interviews to Black and Brown journalists.

She defended her decision during her one and one with WGN’s Tahman Bradley.

“I’m thinking, in this one day when we are looking at the two-year anniversary of my inauguration, as a woman of color, as a lesbian, it’s important to me that diversity is put front in center,” Lightfoot said.

The move infuriated the mostly white City Hall press corps.

Since Lori Lightfoot is a lesbian, one would think lesbian journalists would meet Lightfoot's interview qualifications too.

It's too bad mayor Lightfoot isn't as concerned about saving Black and Brown lives in Chicago. Yesterday it was announced that 108 CHILDREN have been shot in her city so far this year.

Pure, unadulterated, good, old-fashioned racism.

Also discrimination against LGBT.

She's going to wear out the Irony Hammer...pounding on the Hypocrite nail...

Lightfoot is using racism as her excuse to hide from the press, it appears.

Yea, her tactic is transparent.

She's hoping POC won't ask the stuff stuff.

If it weren’t so deadLy serious, it would be laughable. There’s a certain group of people who have completely lost the plot. The sad part? The world they’re trying to create is governed and ruled with illogical insanity. The needs of the few will trample the needs of the rest.

By her own admission diversity = absence of white.

She's just a disgusting human being and an openly corrupt and despicable politician--which is EXACTLY what we should expect in Chicago.

I have the unfortunate need to go to Chicago relatively often for my job, and every time I'm there, without fail, there is a union striking or other political or social turmoil happening in that city. It's sad, because the city does have a lot of good to offer those of us just visiting, but to live in or near there...the news alone would be enough to create perpetual depression in its residents.

It doesn't have to be this way, Chicago. Do better.

It amazes me how black folks can be openly racist and it's fine.

Does it really make a difference that she is a piece of sh!t Liberal racist?
No matter who interviews her, she is going to lie her ass off.

Wow! Racism at work. You Americans need to sort your race problems out by recognising that racism is a two way activity!

Oh, *they* tell you that "blacks can't be racist because they aren't in the power positions." or some such nonsense to excuse it away.
Meanwhile, a black in a power position wields her power to discriminate.

Just another example of a clinically insane person in government. They run states, they run major cities, they sit in the halls of congress....scary, isn't it?

Hey, when you're Beetlejuice, you can make your own rules.

Rule of law -- what's that?

Since Lori Lightfoot is a lesbian,


I hope she's better at that than she is being mayor.

Definition of racism
1 : a belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

2 a : the systemic oppression of a racial group to the social, economic, and political advantage of another
specifically

b : a political or social system founded on racism and designed to execute its principles

The mayor of Chicago should read this

Chicago has been a proud bastion example of Democrat Administration since 1933 😃

So uh, doing this, in official capacity, is illegal.
I would wager a civil rights violation lawsuit is incoming against the city of Chicago.
Way to go mayor!
