“Obama is another oppressor.” Those are not my words. Instead, they are the words of activist Julie Contreras, who “works with a group that runs shelters for undocumented children at the U.S./Mexico border.”
Contreras joined with other Hispanic immigrants who opposed renaming two Chicago-area schools after Barack and Michelle Obama. Yes, they wanted the names changed, but not from one oppressor to another.
The schools are currently named Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Daniel Webster Middle School, but since Jefferson owned slaves and Webster supported slavery, those names must go.
Unfortunately, the Obamas are tainted too. “I will not be part of renaming a school after someone who did not and does not represent the undocumented community,” said District 60 school board member Edgar Castellanos, who came to America undocumented as a child.
As expressed by Contreras, “From the time Barack Obama became President until 2017 when he left, he today is still the highest ranking president with deportations in our nation. We feel that Barack Obama did disservice to us. He denied us, and he didn’t stop the deportations, the way he promised.”
She added, “If you’re removing the name of Thomas Jefferson — one oppressor — the name of Obama is another oppressor and our families do not want to see that name.”
