Chicago traffic court is a mess. Court Clerk Says It’s Racist To Ask Why
quote:

When local news outlet WGN first reported about this two weeks ago, a spokesman for Cook County Court Clerk Dorothy Brown didn’t respond to a request for an explanation. But at a minimum, Brown’s office should have been aware by that point that the notification system wasn’t working well and that the media was taking notice.

Yesterday, roughly two weeks later, WGN came back to the story and found that the situation was still a mess. There is still a line of people showing up at the Daley Center for traffic court only to find out traffic court is online only at the moment. And one of the people they had interviewed for their earlier story finally received a notice about the online court date. The court date was July 7 but on the back of the postcard the date it was mailed was July 16. This particular man had driven three hours each way and waited 3 hours on a line to find out he’d missed his online appearance.

WGN finally got a chance to speak to Court Clerk Dorothy Brown about why all this was happening and her response was, shall we say, very interesting. Brown said the only reason she was being asked was because WGN “felt like this black woman’s office had to have done something wrong.”

Brown continued, “Regardless of what I say today, this story will probably come out very negative for my office as it always has come out over the last 20 years, continuing to perpetuate the internalized, mediated and institutionalized types of racism directly onto me.”

Expecting competence is white privilege.

Going by her logic, John Bel, a straight, white, southern male should be receiving rave reviews due to his demographics, but he's being crucified by the OT.

Maybe it's not due to her race and due to her complete incompetency? Nah, can't be.

Well, it sounds like this black woman’s office has done something wrong.
But I’m not seeing where anyone claimed it’s because she’s black.

I think people could take them fricking up if it wasn’t almost into parody.

Getting notices late is believable.

Getting the notice about two weeks after the event is either intentional or pathetic. Last time I heard of a case where the notifications went out after the trial, it was the Puerto Rican courts intentionally holding subpoenas in a murder trial so they could let the murder off scot free.

Doing a bad job and facing consequences is clearly racist

The old standby.

Claim racism and shut down the questioning.

Everything is racist so does racism still exist?
