These two women are running the mayor of Chicago. Lori Lightfoot (left) and Toni Preckwinkle (right) the only two probable candidates for mayor. March 3, 2019 an article was published by Sun-Times that discusses how these two women pose a threat to men of the Chicago area.
The claim was made that, “Black women are successful because white men set them up for success as a more palatable alternative to black men.” I believe that is appeared that Black men in 2019 cannot stomach to see a woman in influential political roles, but they would go so far to claim white people assisted them in this endeavor. The progress of black women is constantly watered by people blaming assistance as the only reasons for their success. Sexism in the black community has historically been a problem. I pains me to see that a city like Chicago could have such problems with Black women progression. This goes to show that no matter the time the past is liable to repeat itself.
These women have a life of accomplishments that prove them worthy of this role, yet black men cannot accept this. The article concludes by saying, “Lightfoot and Preckwinkle have pledged to bring equity and new resources to Chicago’s beleaguered and bereft black communities. By many measures, it’s black men and boys who need them most.”
