Well, Well and Well. Thank you for proving me fucking right! Oak Park, IL has taken off its mask and shown its ugly RACIST face. On the 8th someone or maybe a group of people vandalized the Black Lives Matter mural and changed it to an “All Lives Matter” mural. Honestly “all lives matter” is bullshit because they do not. The same assholes who say that are the ones who have a problem wearing a mask when around people in public venues.
This was a festering in the area where the “overwhelming support” obviously had some dissenters. There is video online of a couple that, in broad daylight are painting over a similar Black Lives Matter mural In California, for them evne though they are obviously racist and out their fucking minds, I have a sliver of respect for them over the idiots who vandalized the mural in Oak Park, IL. The couple in California at least had the BALLS to do it in broad daylight, these people in Oak Park, IL actually did it at night.
Plus, on top of that is the area in which this occurred: Scoville Avenue just south of Lake Street in Oak Park. And no one saw nothing? Near Lake street? Which is Oak Park’s Michigan Avenue?? come on!! That tells you what the area thinks about this mural in the first place. Every time I drive through this area at night, I always run into a cop car, but on the 8th there, was, not, one???? No one was a person, or a group of people do all this new “artwork” to the mural?
Unfortunately, no one will come forward because everyone is in the closet with their hatred in Oak Park, IL unless you have some idiot who brags to a friend, who then brags to a friend who does NOT appreciate that shit. Add to this situation is that the couple in Martinez is being charged with a hate crime in their case so most likely the people involved here will be charged the same way. With the Oak park police department, I doubt the perps will be found because there are no consequences to not do the right thing and find the people involved.
Unless either the state or federal government fines the village for its lack of charging vandals in this case their will not be charges however, I guess the area will be more vigilant regarding the mural… at least for a while. But this is truly not a surprise considering how fake ass Oak park, IL really is. With all the past racial incidents not really coming to a solid conclusion it does mar the area, and those residents, students who try to move on and do more with their lives. Coming from a racist ass village does not sing well with college admissions representatives who do not want to accept student who may become a hassle in the future regardless of the probabilities that student may or may not be one (a hassle).
The problem is instead of facing its racist present Oak Park, Il would rather put on a mask and fool itself regarding what is still going on. As now everyone around the village can see this “shining beacon on a hill” is really not shit. The mask is off and there is no way to put it back on.
PS: Oh, I found out about the mural being defaced wayyyyy early in the morning via social media and waited until the local news confirmed it four hours later. FOUR HOURS. Great going Oak Park, IL!
