#Lightfoot has a similar profile to her predecessor #RahmEmanuel in that her national image and her status in the Democratic party matter much more to her than the opinion of local Chicagoans--especially Black, brown, immigrant, poor and working ones. #StopLightfoot #DefundCPD
The platforms these national orgs give #LoriLightfoot don't just shroud the violence she commits locally--they empower it. So long as she is allowed to masquerade as a champion or "racial justice" and "intersectionality" nationally, she is empowered to be the antithesis locally.

The wealthy bemoaning that social unrest is making them lose business and has them "rethinking their commitment to the city" says a lot about what their commitment to #Chicago is actually based on. #BlackLivesMatter #PeopleOverProperty…
Wealthy Chicagoans threatening to take their hoarded resources elsewhere is a dogwhistle. They know well that the massive police force and the violence it commits regularly are meant to keep their property protected at the expense of the rest of the city. #BlackLivesMatter
"Where will we live if we can't live here?" As though the austerity measures they've passed, the gentrification they've forced, the schools and clinics they've closed, haven't all been in an active effort to push generations of poor Black people out of #Chicago #BlackLivesMatter
