Judge Forces Mayor To Explain Anti-White Policy
Public servants are supposed to serve the people. It's a pretty simple concept, as most are voted into office. Mayor Lightfoot has an odd way of doing so. She decided to prop up people of color by discriminating against white people. Lightfoot made a policy where she would only allow one on one interviews with people of color to force diversity. But now after a judge asked her to explain this policy, she claims it is no longer in effect.
"A judge told lawyers for Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, D., Monday to provide a declaration by the end of the week as to whether her policy of only granting interviews to journalists of color was still in effect or would be in the future.
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch asked the court for an injunction against Lightfoot's policy last week, saying it was unconstitutional, but Lightfoot's attorneys said at a remote hearing Monday that the policy was not in effect and the request was unnecessary, according to reports.
Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against Lightfoot on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation last month, alleging Lightfoot violated White reporter Thomas Catenacci's equal protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment when she didn't respond to multiple requests for interviews, as well as his First Amendment rights."
Lightfoot originally defended her decision to discrimate on Twitter.
"I ran to break up the status quo that was failing so many. That isn't just in City Hall. It's a shame that in 2021, the City Hall press corps is overwhelmingly White in a city where more than half of the city identifies as Black, Latino, AAPI or Native American."
"Diversity and inclusion is imperative across all institutions including media. In order to progress, we must change."
"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."
"This is an imbalance that needs to change. Chicago is a world-class city. Our local media should reflect the multiple cultures that comprise it."
"We must be intentional about doing better. I believed that when running for office. I stand on this belief now. It’s time for the newsrooms to do better and build teams that reflect the make-up of our city."
It's interesting how that policy was suddenly not in effect once a judge asked about it. I guess she knew better than to discriminate against white people. It's just that she needed to be reminded not to be racist. The people of Chicago need to vote in a better mayor asap.
