She's ticking all the 'equality of outcome' boxes: black/female/gay. One by one these feminist-leftist cities are turning into scenes from the original Robocop dystopian shitholes.

Black gay female, yup she ticks all the boxes! She's clearly got what it takes to run one of the most populated and crime ridden cities in the nation.

Why not? Its not like San Fran looks like a disaster zone under a black female mayor and chicago has absolutely no issues in its black communities already.

I’m sure this one won’t be corrupt. I mean the last 50 were but I’m sure she’s trust worthy.
