An African-American alderwoman in Chicago is under fire for negative remarks about same-sex marriage she made during a community forum March 25.
I include her race because there is a homophobia problem in the African-American community. More on that after you read this excerpt from the Chicago Tribune article about the remarks:
West Side Ald. Emma Mitts (37th) apologized Wednesday for making an anti-gay remark captured on video as her opponent called on the pro-Mayor Rahm Emanuel super PAC to rescind the nearly $50,000 in support it has given Mitts.
