Federal Judge Orders Chicago Mayor to Explain Her Racist Interview Policy
From PJ Media:
Following an order from U.S. District Judge John Z. Lee, attorneys for Chicago’s unabashedly racist mayor Lori Lightfoot told a judge on June 7 that they will file a sworn declaration clarifying the mayor’s policy on allowing interviews only to “people of color,” according to The Daily Caller.
Lightfoot’s office snubbed its noses at interview requests from at least two white reporters, explaining that the mayor would only grant requests from black or brown journalists. There was no mention of the mayor’s policy for Asian reporters, native American reporters, or light-skinned Hispanic reporters.
Lightfoot seemed to be pretty clear about her interview intentions in a tweet from May 19,
This is exactly why I’m being intentional about prioritizing media requests from POC reporters on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of my inauguration as mayor of this great city.

According to court papers, Lightfoot had still not granted any interviews to white reporters as of June 2. This is the sort of behavior that tells me the left has never been about equality, but about revenge, though I’m not sure how far back I would have to go to even find a white politician publicly denying an interview request to a black reporter.
The Daily Caller and Judicial Watch filed the suit on May 27 after Lightfoot denied an interview to Daily Caller reporter Thomas Catenacci based on his oppressive white skin tone. I’m guessing they googled him for proof of pigment.
