ormer congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D) on Friday called for Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot to resign due to her “blatant anti-white racism.”
Mayor Lightfoot announced on Wednesday that she will only be granting interviews to “black and brown” reporters.
“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,” Lightfoot said.
“Mayor Lightfoot’s blatant anti-white racism is abhorrent,” Gabbard said on Twitter. “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.”

People have speculated Tulsi Gabbard might become a Republican. Shows it'll never happen. She talks of "anti-white racism" when conservatives are only supposed to be interested in the anti-Semitism of those opposed to bombing Hamas. https://t.co/qgze0b1xxd
