Amid news that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot could lose re-election this year, the Democratic politician has taken her frustration out on media she claims isn’t giving her a fair shake because she’s a “woman of color.”

The current mayor accused Time of playing the race and gender card by not depicting her as a strong mayor, saying if she wasn’t a Black woman she would’ve received a similar cover story, and her polarizing actions as mayor wouldn’t have been judged as harshly.
