Kim Foxx pulled the race card in her ongoing war of words with Chicago police over her decision to drop all charges against 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett.
Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police and Cook County suburban police chiefs on Friday called for Foxx to step down as Cook County's top prosecutor. They said her corruption goes beyond the Jussie Smollett case. They accused her of letting too many criminals go free.
Foxx responded by calling the police racists during an emotional speech at Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push Coalition event on Saturday.
"I have been asking myself for the last two weeks what is this really about," she said. "This is personal."
Foxx said Smollett was treated no differently than any other criminal whose charges were dropped since she took office as Cook County state's attorney.
She remained silent when one of her supporters referred to the FOP as the "blue klux klan".
According to Fox News reporter Matt Finn, many speakers at Jackson's event called members of the FOP racist, including failed mayoral candidate Ja'Mal Greene, who called police the "blue klux klan".
Foxx again welcomed an independent investigation into her decision to drop 16 felony charges against Smollett.
The actor, who is biracial and homosexual, claimed 2 Trump supporters attacked him in a racist and anti-homosexual hate crime on Jan. 29 in Chicago. He was arrested on Feb. 20 after two male accomplices admitted their participation in the hoax.
