“Our leaders must condemn all racism, including anti-white.”
Gabbard also demanded Lightfoot to resign. She called on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to demand the resignation, too
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.

Lightfoot said she only wants to give interviews to “Black or Brown journalists.”
Lightfoot granted an interview to Gregory Platt, a Latino reporter at The Chicago Times. He turned her down after the office refused “to lift its conditions on others.”
“Politicians don’t get to choose who covers them,” Platt tweeted.
I am a Latino reporter @chicagotribune whose interview request was granted for today. However, I asked the mayor’s office to lift its condition on others and when they said no, we respectfully canceled. Politicians don’t get to choose who covers them. https://t.co/YMW8M8ZgJm
