"Alderman John Collins-Mohammad, D-21st Ward, is among the sponsors of the new ballot proposal that would preserve the current 28 wards.

He contends that the current reduction plan is unfair to minorities.

“If you want to ensure that everyone is equally represented, then ward reduction is not the way to go,” Collins-Mohammad said during Friday’s debate.

“If your goal is to disenfranchise wards and neighborhoods, then you support ward reduction – in its current form.”"

The problem with this argument is that black aldermen did not / do not represent black people. They vote time and time again with the white Democratic establishment machine at the expense of their own own... they allowed their wards to become blighted warzones... entire school districts to become unaccredited. Businesses to shut down. the result? Loss of population.

What representation? Do that poor a job as an alderman and lose enough of your population to warrant the dissolution of your ward you have no one to blame but yourself. That in itself is PROOF.

Black leaders underestimate the peoples' will for change.
They learned nothing from Trump's win.
