[Ed. – It’s refreshing to see this sort of overt racism from the Left challenged.]

A judge in Chicago has ordered the city’s mayor, Democrat Lori Lightfoot, to make a declaration about a policy where she would grant interviews based on the skin color of journalists.

“Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch asked the court for an injunction against Lightfoot’s policy last week, saying it was unconstitutional, but Lightfoot’s attorneys said at a remote hearing Monday that the policy was not in effect and the request was unnecessary,” Fox News reported. “Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against Lightfoot on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation last month, alleging Lightfoot violated White reporter Thomas Catenacci’s equal protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment when she didn’t respond to multiple requests for interviews, as well as his First Amendment rights.”

News broke in late May that Lightfoot would only be granting interviews to journalists who had black or brown skin color.
