    What about those who voted against her for the same reasons?

    The reason to point out such characteristics isn’t to say she was elected because of them, but to note the historical significance of her being elected in spite of having such characteristics that would have been deal-breakers for so many not so long ago.

        We're moving, but that's still a few years away. I'm good where we are now for the most a part. We've had pretty much the same neighbors for the last 21 years, we all get along with each other so that's cool. Once our daughter is done with school then well be moving.

            I was in a hotel in Chicago a few months ago and turned on the local news. About ten minutes into it, it hit me: Everyone was black. From the talking heads to the field reporters to the local individuals being interviewed.

            It became the most noticeable thing about the news broadcast, especially to someone that does not live in the area. And they were even having the "black women's fair" or something like that at the time.

            It was like I died and went to Wakanda, without the found high tech. Weird.

            So I'm not surprised their mayor is black. I am surprized she is homosexual, though. American Black culture is not as accepting of homosexuality as the rest of american culture, from what I percieve. I believe it is one of the weaknesses of Buttiggie... Buttuge...Buttma... Mayor Pete.

            EVERYTHING I type (i.e. not a link or video) is only my opinion. In a sane world, that should not have to be said. But then, we are not living in a sane world, are we?

                    It’s interesting how much Conservatives are appalled at gang members killing each other.

                    Chicago is actually rated quite high among large cities as far as safety goes.

                      Why? Shouldn’t we all be appalled by it?

                        I don't care if gangsters kill gangsters. They are gangsters by choice. It's what they do.

                            Being elected mayor of Chicago isn't actually a good barometer for "progress". With the reputation of Chicago, they'd probably be happy to settle for the bottom of the barrel, if that was all that would run.

                                You`re the one making an issue about it. Pat yourself on the back. Nobody else cares.
