The city of Chicago and Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson is calling on city authorities to give black residents fewer parking tickets in an effort to push “racial equity.”

The city has established a “Racial Equity Office,” which pushes the idea that urgency is white supremacist, and has made its city police give fewer parking tickets to black residents.

“{snip} As a longtime resident of Chicago’s West Side, I see the devastating impact systemic inequality can have on a neighborhood and its residents,” Chicago Mayor Brandon Johsnon said.


In the city’s “racial equity report,” it states that a goal for the city’s Department of Finance is to implement a plan that will result in few parking tickets issues to “black and brown” residents of the Windy City:

Continue to use data to deploy parking enforcement personnel to further reduce average fine amounts in Black and Brown neighborhoods by 2.5% and implement improved boot zones and a prioritization of resources to reduce the percentage of vehicles immobilized in Black and Brown neighborhoods by 5%.
