Our village board should be composed of the brightest citizens of Oak Park who are dedicated to the best interest of all of us. To require a racial quota for the village board is itself the blatant racism we are supposed to detest. We strive for a color blind community and most here agree with that objective. To put a black on the board because he/she is black is a disservice to the whole community and its stated goals.
