Portland City Employees Offered Paid Leave to Mourn ‘400 Years of African-American Oppression’

Ridiculous.

Published

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has offered city employees 40 hours of uncontested leave to “mourn” the “400 years of African-American oppression.”

The paid-leave was announced in an email to all city employees on Monday, following over a week of riots and unrest in the city.

“As a nation and as a City we continue to grieve the recent loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and others in the country and in our community. We acknowledge that Black employees are experiencing a collective grief and trauma coming from a culmination of oppression that is over 400 years old,” Wheeler said in the email.

The mayor continued on to say that “we hear and understand that many of our employees, especially our BiPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) employees, are deeply impacted by these recent events and are hurting.”

“I want to give our employees space to grieve and reflect: 40 hours of bereavement leave as allowed under HRAR (Human Resources Administrative Rules) 6.03,” he said, adding that he is directing managers and supervisors to approve the leave without question.

The mayor said that he hopes to spark a trend with other employers in the city.

“We’re witnessing a dramatic shift in our nation, one that is urgently charting the path forward for restorative justice, inclusion and understanding. I feel tremendous responsibility, as well as tremendous privilege, to be a part of this historic movement. Thank you for walking that path with me as we continue to serve the City of Portland,” the email concluded.

Portland, like many other cities across the nation, has been plagued with violence, looting, rioting and general mayhem after a black man died in the custody of Minneapolis Police over two weeks ago.

Career politicians from both sides of the aisle have been desperately pandering to the violent mobs that are terrorizing these cities instead of restoring law and order.

CNN and MSNBC COMPLETELY IGNORE Shocking Murder of 5-Year-Old White Boy By Black Neighbor

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor.

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor in North Carolina.

Had the races been reversed, we would have never heard the end of this story.

Hinnant was playing outside with his siblings when Darius Sessoms became outraged that the small child had ventured into his yard. The monster went up to the boy, put a gun to his head, and pulled the trigger.

Cannon was about to start Kindergarten.

After murdering the child, Sessoms fled and lead police on a 24 hour chase before being apprehended. You would think that mainstream media would have wanted to help get the name and face of a violent and dangerous killer out there — but nope!

It turns out, crimes against children is a common theme in this family.

The Nationalist Review reports “Darius’ brother, Joshua Sessoms, was a former North Carolina State football player. Joshua Sessoms eventually became a science teacher at Southern Nash High, where he was charged with raping students at the high school and other underage girls. The mother of the two felons is currently seeking prayers on Facebook.”

Sessoms is in custody and has been charged with murder.
