The NEGRO Pandering Tom Dart needs to be IMPEACHED
Dart — the 19th Ward's most prominent resident — was conspicuously quiet during the ugly clashes last month that followed the fatal shooting by police of 25-year-old Joshua Beal, who was black.
At the time, Mayor Rahm Emanuel condemned what he called the "racially, culturally or ethnically tinged language" that saw Black Lives Matters protesters subjected to racial epithets and told they were "animals" who should "go home" by pro-police counterprotesters who drowned out their attempts to pray for peace in the overwhelmingly white neighborhood. But Dart at the time declined to comment about what was unfolding in the community he calls home.
The sheriff, who has mulled mayoral runs in the past and may yet harbor ambitions to replace Emanuel, has built support in the black community with his high-profile 2009 raid of the disgracefully mismanaged Burr Oak Cemetery and popular reforms of the Cook County Jail. But speaking out against the white protesters who squared off against Black Lives Matter would require him to criticize his neighbors.
So Dart walked a tightrope Tuesday, after a lawsuit was filed by parents of two Marist High School seniors who say they were made "scapegoats" when they were expelled for being part of a racist text message group chat in the wake of Beal's killing. (One of the teens allegedly wrote "I F------ HATE N------" while the other allegedly agreed).
Asked after an appearance at the City Club of Chicago alongside police Superintendent Eddie Johnson if his neighborhood, which is home to a large population of cops and firefighters, had a particular problem with racism, Dart said, "There's racism everywhere, there really is, and some of it is hidden more so than others, and it's horrible everywhere.
