Who feel that the lack of working towards diversity hurts the community instead of helping it. But that has always been Oak Park, IL’s MO always one of talk and doing the other thing. Hypocrisy at its best. Stating who they are not racist but turn a blind eye to social reform because it would mean they would have to look inward and do the work to make change necessary.
