Hundreds of protestors gathered on Thursday outside the home of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, demanding better performance ahead of the city leader's two-year mark in office.

People were carrying "report card" signs, giving an "F" to Lightfoot on her record on education as well as police reform, housing, and the handling of the pandemic.

Lightfoot has also been recently the subject of no small attention for insisting that only people with dark skin will have access to her for interviews, a very unpopular and criticized move in many social and political circles.

She was also spotted as recently as Thursday evening in a restaurant with no mask on, after having virtue-signaled Monday that she would continue to wear a mask, and recommend that others also do so.

According to local outlet Fox 32 Chicago, the event was sponsored by different community organizations, including the Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter and the teachers' union. The website created for the event reads, in part:

"For the past 2 years, Lightfoot's [a]dministration has continued to ignore the demands of its people. This administration has failed on multiple issues — from environmental justice to education to policing to housing and COVID recovery."

"Join over 30 organizations in calling out Mayor Lightfoot on her [two-]year anniversary and demand that she fulfill her broken promises," the message continues.

Tara Stamps, a long-time teacher in Chicago's public schools, commented: "It’s not enough to be Black, it’s not enough to be female, you gotta be right."
