“Oak Park has a place for everybody,” said Trustee Susan Buchanan.
But a Monday night a discussion on rewriting the village’s diversity statement got heated over some specific words. Those words were: “We work to break down systems of oppression.”
“I hesitate to send the message to our police department that they are a system of oppression,” Moroney said in the meeting.
Moroney clearly frustrated Buchanan.
“You have been white from birth! Why are you arguing, what is a system of oppression? You have never experienced one!” Buchanan said.
Oak Park is 68 percent white, and has no minority people on its board of trustees. But it’s got a diversity statement! A super-woke one!
Surveys have shown that by far the wokest demographic are white liberals. This clip featuring a Chicago-area hysteric is a good example of that. Keep in mind that women are heavily overrepresented among elementary and secondary schoolteachers. Is there any wonder that public schools have become re-education camps for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity™?
