    Default Chicago clean air

    Am curious if anybody from Chicago has an opinion on this new clean air drive from Mayor Lightfood. A former colleague of mine consults for that administration, or rather consulted, and he was rather shocked how disorganized everything seemed. I see quite a few problems with her ideas but I'd like to hear from somebody who's actually right there, on the ground.

    Murders up 50% from last year and this anti police dumb ass is concerned about dirty air? I could care less about anything she has to say.

    Yep. I wonder how she got elected and who's pulling her strings. I've got a lot of family in Chicago, some in medium size business and they all complain. And do absolutely nothing.

    She got elected by the color of her skin. Chicago has a large-enough minority population to determine who is mayor in just about every election from here on out.

    Don't you think it's about time the minorities got some equity? Whites have enjoyed that same thing for hundreds of years because of the color of our skin.

    But, for some strange reason, the white people want the same rules for all.
    Ever since the 1964 rule changes, everyone has the same rights, regardless of skin color.

    The people in charge now, they want tribalism.

    If you think turning modestly run cities into urban hell holes to be equity I suppose you're right.

    OK.

    Stop with the snide remarks and backhanded comments on a person's appearance.

    I don't agree with her politics, but she was duly elected and needs to look out for her city.

    You couldn't drag me into that position with a hundred wild horses.

    Chicago is a shit show, and for those in charge of running it, a political death sentence.

    Stop with the attacks please.

    Myself and any Conservative I've ever known judges people based on character, not race. Also, humans are individuals, not groups. Not all blacks fit into a group as you see it. In fact, I know many that strongly disagree with your view.

    It's flat out insulting to any black person to imply they can't do it on their own, and that they need the help of whites to accomplish anything. It actually implies whites are superior.

    I know you will never be able to process this, but your approach is the very definition of Racism.

    I almost never post here but read a lot. You guys should let him supply enough rope. Just ask him to explain. They never can - it's all BS slogans.

    Evidently you haven't heard about the voter suppression going on in Arizona, Georgia and probably other states. Also, your "tribalism" smacks of racism.

    I'm reading that as you thinking that only white people can run a city. Is that correct?

    Regardless of who brought up skin color, your statement is your statement.

    Not quite sure how you people get bamboozled so easily.

    If black people mattered to the Left, they would do something about the deaths in Chicago.

    Don't listen to me, go look at the stats. The deaths are overwhelmingly black males.

    If you think these Leftist Elites care are about Black people, you're a fool. They are being pimped for support.

    No, you weren't. You were trolling.

    Minorities can have "equity" with mayors of any color. You are not ( hopefully ) implying that Chicago minorities are so stupid as to elect some incompetent just because happens to be a person of color and different sexual orientation. Because that would be racist. Equity is good if in the end you can do something with it.
