Have you seen the lastest Chicago Reader cover?

I didn't share anything about this over the weekend, however, it's time to do it this morning. Now I don't want to beat the dead horse over the revelation of gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker's long ago comments with regards to referring to two well know Black state politicos as crass or safe. This is established and like I said this was just about 10 years ago on wiretaps of Pritzker and disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

In the ensuing few days after the Tribune shared those long ago wiretaps Pritzker has done everything he possibly could to apologies for those remarks with Blago. He's sense gone on to editorial board meetings and some debates. One of his supporters 6th ward Ald. Roderick Sawyer continues to back him and as you see in the video below defends him. [VIDEO]

 The video above took place not longer after the Alderman's speech at the City Club of Chicago.

Pouring gasoline on the fire, what is the Alderman talking about? Here ya go!

Here's an accompanying article to the Reader's cover further talking about the controversy that isn't going away. As stated in another post this is certainly a case where the front runner is doing some serious damage control. Yes those wiretaps were close to 10 years ago, but they prove to be quite damaging and Prtizker admits that back in late 2008 - the year Barack Obama became the 1st Black POTUS - he wasn't his best self.

So all the same, the controversy over the cartoon you see above by the Chicago Reader was covered on Friday by Rich Miller.
Finally doing something this controversial a racially charged cartoon can sometimes only result in this unfortunate consequence also covered by Miller's CapFax.
The pot has been stirred, unfortunately Konkol no longer executive editor at the Chicago Reader. Risky thing to stir the post and this doesn't look as if it paid off.
