(UnitedVoice.com) – Imagine what would happen if a Republican lawmaker said they would be prioritizing interviews with white journalists over those of color. The outrage would be immediate and the calls for punishment would be swift. Now, reverse that. A Democratic mayor literally said she would prioritize journalists of color over white reporters and the Left has all but ignored her comments…except for one former representative.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) recently said she would grant interviews to journalists of color before others as she approaches the second anniversary of her inauguration. On Friday, May 21, Hawaii’s former Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard called on people within her party, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, to demand Lightfoot’s resignation for the “blatant anti-white racism.”
Mayor Lightfoot's blatant anti-white racism is abhorrent. I call upon President Biden, Kamala Harris, and other leaders of our county—of all races—to join me in calling for Mayor Lightfoot's resignation. Our leaders must condemn all racism, including anti-white.

The Democratic Party often claims it cares about racism. They make a big deal when they think someone on the Right has said something without thinking, but don’t seem to care when the racism comes from within their own party. It’s been almost a week since Gabbard called on party leadership to condemn the racism and they still haven’t said a word.
