In a viral video, a woman on the trustee council for Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, screamed at her male colleagues that they don’t get to have an opinion because they’ve never been “oppressed.”
Being told they don’t have a right to speak or think freely probably seemed pretty oppressive to them.
Espousing tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT) that claim experiences held by ethnic minorities cannot be understood or empathized by members or ethnic majorities, trustee, Susan Buchanan, lost her cool after a white, male colleague questioned whether or not their local police department should be characterized as a “system of oppression.”
Dan Moroney thought the language would be insulting to police officers, given there is no empirical evidence that the department was guilty of systemic oppression or prejudice.
Questioning the language in a statement prepared for the public that said, “We work to break down systems of oppression,” Moroney said, “I hesitate to send the message to our police department that they are a system of oppression.”
Buchanan screamed at Moroney that as a white man he didn’t get to have an opinion. You can watch the video below.
Buchanan followed up with, “You have not spent a day with dark brown skin and tried to walk through this society!”
Buchanan is a white woman.
