When Rahm ran for Congress (on the norht side) there was some antisemitic comments voiced by members of the Eastern European community on the north side. I remember it well.

"His strongest opponent of the seven other candidates in the 2002 Democratic primary—the real contest in this heavily Democratic district—was former Illinois State Representative Nancy Kaszak, who had unsuccessfully opposed Blagojevich in the 1996 primary. The most controversial moment of the primary election came when Edward Moskal, president of the Polish American Congress, a political action committee endorsing Kaszak, called Emanuel a "millionaire carpetbagger who knows nothing" about "our heritage". "

Rahm Emanuel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moskal made several other comments, too. The holocaust was mentioned.

What's really sad is that when Braun gets destroyed in the election, the race baiters like Jesse, Al, Mary Mitchell will blame it on racism instead of incompetence on Braun's part. This will continue to keep Chicago divided racially which keeps these folks in business. Just watch....

Believe it or not, but many black people in Chicago have their own minds and do not listen to Jesse Jackson's nonsense. IMO, he is not a real leader in the black community.

Well, I think your cynicism is unfounded. Rahm cannot win without black support. So if Rahm wins, what will that mean as to a racist reaction to Braun? It may mean that race was not a factor and maybe folks won't be waving the race card.

Remember Carol lost to Fitzgerald? I don't think folks were waving the race card then. Do you remember any charges of racism?

Stop this inflammatory crap! You can't find one Chicago election where people such as Jesse, Sharpton, etc have jumped in and blamed the loss of racism. Hell, Jackson ran for president and lost, and didn't blame his loss on race.

Lenniel loves to play the aggrieved elitist. He cries with a loaf of bread under each arm.

Braun did herself. She equated George Will with a KKK member.

This was article:

http://students.uis.edu/araut01s/cr/will.html

These were her comments:

``I think because he could not say `n****r,' he said the word `corrupt,' '' Moseley-Braun offered by way of rebutting Will's columns about her many ethical lapses. ``George Will can just take his hood and go back to wherever he came from.'' (In fact, Will hadn't said the word ``corrupt.'')

Did that have anything to do with folks voting for Fitzgerald instead of her? I think you're off the subject.

Which is dumb because Braun is washed up,
you go from being a one term senator to then trying to be a mayor?
Isnt that backwards? Does anyone even remember
the guy who beat her? I had to look it up, I was out of state
at the time but Peter Fitzgerald is a pretty forgettable guy,
and for a democratic senator Braun to lose
to a republican in a blue state thats pretty sad.
I knew Barack Obama was running for senate, but
never who whose seat he filled.
