Cover Story: J.B. Pritzker's "African American thing." New columnist Adeshina Emmanuel says the J.B. Pritzker caught talking on a FBI wiretap is a "sneak disser." Neil Steinberg rebuts and says J.B. Pritzker is (not) a bigot. Emmanuel follows up by asking why black pols are still standing behind Pritzker. Then Mark Konkol interviews J.B. so that the man can speak in his own defense.
