CHICAGOLAND: School’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ event excludes whites, Latinos – EAGnews.org


Is this fair? I think not…


Segregation lives at Oak Park and River Forest High School.

The Chicagoland school held a “Black Lives Matter” assembly, but only black students were invited to participate.

White parents were upset after their children were “turned away” from the event commemorating Black History Month. They say they were offended because the school reportedly prides itself on being diverse and inclusive.

“(Some) students and parents expressed confusion and concern about the event being for black students only,” a press release distributed after the event by the school states.

“Information about the event lacked clarity about this aspect of the conversation, and the high school is committed to improving communications in the future.”
