ONN – At Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf 2017 Thank You Event Where’s The Black Male Staffers?
Hey Oakland! In the wake of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf selecting Steven Falk as her Interim City Administrator, thus continuing a pattern where only one black man has been selected as either CAO or Assistant CAO over her time as Mayor, let’s take a look at a 2017 photo and Zennie62Media video-blog of the Oakland Mayor’s Office Staff at this thank you party.
Can anyone spot a single black man in the staff photo? Watch the video, too! Just saying, and not for a friend: to make a point.
I held this for years hoping for my long time friend Libby to change but that’s not happening, so I released this vlog. While I held back and protected her, the talk of Mayor Schaaf not having a single black man in her office was all over town among African Amercan Oaklanders. Libby reportedly got the message and hired, ah, one black man, a year ago or so.
Why does Libby play race politics with black staff hiring? Why a history with, let’s see, no black men on her staff up to 2018, and then one? It’s a question no one has asked, but it’s time to ask. In a town who had it’s first black mayor in 1979, and a tradition of having blacks, and including legendary black men, in key roles directly representing whoever the Mayor was, it’s a question that should be asked. The pattern is way too obvious to ignore.
