Trustee of Oak Park, Illinois, Shouts Down Colleagues for Speaking on Equity and Diversity Issues Because They are White Males

Oak Park, IL, trustee Susan Buchanan, a medical doctor, was filmed berating her fellow trustees at a board meeting for being white. Her view was that while males should not be permitted to speak on such issues. The crowd at the public meeting supported her.

A board of trustees meeting in the Village of Oak Park, Illinois, took an ugly turn Monday night, when one elected official went on a tirade against several of her colleagues for daring to give input on updates to the town’s equity, diversity, and inclusion statement.

What are the details?

Trustee Susan Buchanan came unglued after another trustee, Dan Moroney, suggested defining what it means to “break down systems of oppression” as part of the language in the proposed new version of Oak Park’s diversity statement.

Moroney used the example that the local police department had recently been accused by some in the community of being a “system of oppression” and he would therefore “hesitate to send the message to our police department that they are a system of oppression.”

Moroney went on to note that it was important to define such terms, because someone in the local newspaper had recently said racial equity could be achieved via wealth redistribution through socialist policies.

“That’s not something I’m in favor of,” Moroney emphasized, adding that capitalism would actually lead to greater equity.

Buchanan, a medical doctor who has served on the board since April, criticized Moroney for bringing up the police and capitalism, and then another male trustee stepped in delicately to try to assist in working out language that would satisfy all parties.

Buchanan had heard enough.

“I am so tired of hearing two white men tell us what systems of oppression are,” she said to applause from the audience. “You have been white from birth. Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced it, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you! Just stop Dan, just stop Deno. You are not oppressed people and people in Oak Park are and we are trying to recognize that as a community.”

I would love to remove all contributions to the world we live in for which white males were responsible. If this moron really believed that all things done by said white males are repressive she would do a little research and remove these horrible details from her own life. I’m sure she wouldn’t miss them at all seeing how “woke” she obviously is.


Communists never sleep to tell us what we can say think and do. I am so sick of these idiots that know everything and it is past time to FIGHT back.


We’ve finally jumped the shark into insanity. This is the unhinged ugly face of feminism. We were warned this toxic ideology would divide the nation ultimdtkt leading to its demise.

Can someone remind this old harridan that she only can spew her venom because white American males have died in countless conflicts so she can now condemn those who gave her privileges.

Feminism is Marxist socialism for toxic women. They are an enemy within. This is not going to end well for the nation.

As a senior white male, worldly experienced, I stand up to face these professional victim class women. For centuries you’ve run the show, quietly with your sexuality, and we real men have , equally quietly, acquiesced. So, now must be the time to discard that weapon (your sexuality) and put us down permanently? Have you no idea what you’re throwing away (baby and bathwater come to mind)? That utopian world you seem to think is at hand is actually dystopian, and your short success will seem even shorter when our necessary services are no longer available.
