Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Declares Racism A Public Health Crisis


  1. Lightfoot was maskless in a huge crowd celebrating bidens win, refused interviews with non minority journalists, refused national guards help for a city being destroyed by b.l.m riots.

  2. Meaning exactly what? Declare all you want… call it the Mr. Potatohead Scourge for all the difference it’ll make! What are you specifically intending to do about it?

    1. Those toddler tropes are you guys favs, aren’t they?. Mr potato head, Dr Seuss the Republican party just loves those things. Aww, you people are just cunnin’with what you think is actually important.
      Start doing the right things for the people like this intelligent strong woman and maybe you won’t need your voter suppression laws so badly.

  3. How about the applications you fill out, (jobs, hospital forms etc) where by they ask your ethnicity!!

    1. Becky, I agree. Does not matter as long as your resume applies to a position available. Listen, I am white and nearing 70 and have never understood. It’s got to be qualifications and nothing more. Good luck to you – you sound like someone who has worked hard to succeed to even post what you did

  4. *MY WORLD*
    *मुझे रख दिया छाव मे,खुद जलते रहे धूप मे* ….
    *मैने देखा है ऐसा एक “फरिश्ता” अपने पिता के रूप मे* ….
    *Happy Father’s Day Papa*

  5. Chicago and Illinois have some of the strongest gun laws in America that’s why they have to bring their guns from neighboring states that have some most relaxed gun laws in America get your facts right

    1. Pretty much. Other countries have comparable or stricter gun laws but they don’t have weather reports on shootings because they don’t share borders with 24 hour gun shows.

    2. Even if guns were made illegal in all 50 states, joe and Kamala opened the border up wide open. Guns are easily accessible in Mexico.

  6. As the economy crisis keep rising one needs to
    have different stream of income, one needs to
    have a diversified portfolio in order to survive

    1. @Murphy Christopher I will recommend you to my expert Dr Scott Austin he has been my broker and account handler for over three months now and its been a good experience and gain

    2. @Michael robert BTC is the best investment one can make at this recent time to accumulate more profit after a successful trade

    3. @Bright John Oh Really you also know Scott Austin I even thought I’m the only one he has helped walk through the fears and falls of trading

    1. But psychiatrists are like BAND AIDS. How about we do something to PREVENT racism instead so we don’t need so many “psychiatrists” in schools? (BTW, NO schools have psychiatrists. They’re lucky to have a school nurse. Psychiatrists are the ones doling out pills. I think you mean PSYCHOLOGISTS or THERAPISTS)

  7. Chicagoans really screwed the pooch when they elected Lori f*cking lightfoot. It’s plain to see the job has been beyond her for a while.

    * The GOP on “Critical Race Theory” — “We don’t teach what we practice.”
    * The GOP on “Voter Suppression” — “Do as I say, not as I do.”
