From the Chicago Tribune:

Following discovery of ‘circle game’ photos, OPRF will pay $53K to reprint student yearbooks

Steve Schering, Pioneer Press

The Oak Park and River Forest High School board has decided to reprint the 2018-2019 yearbook after more than a dozen photos of students engaging in the “circle game” were discovered inside.

The high school will pay Jostens $53,794 to reprint the yearbooks, and officials say they hope to have the new books delivered to students by mid-June.

Graduation, however, is June 2, so this decision means that graduates won’t get a chance to sign each other’s Yearbooks with funny inscriptions until long after they’ve dispersed, which means most of them will never do it. So, this delay has lifetime implications for the graduates in denying them a sentimental souvenir of their high school years.

… The school board called a special meeting May 20 to discuss the future of the current yearbooks, which have been printed and are currently at the high school but have yet to be distributed. In total, 1,750 yearbooks were ordered and printed, officials said.

Last week, administrators announced the yearbooks would not be distributed in their current format after officials found 18 photos inside of students making an upside-down “OK” gesture. The school said the students flashing the sign were of “of various races, ethnicities, genders and grades.”

The school board’s decision left some of the “Tabula” yearbook staff in tears, though officials said they did nothing wrong.

“My understanding is [yearbook staff] followed protocol,” Superintendent Joylynn Pruitt-Adams said. “Things in this country change so rapidly. I don’t want anyone to think we are accusing our students of anything. For us, it was the impact of what the publication could have on the student body.”

Pruitt-Adams said other options such as cutting some pages out of the yearbook or placing stickers over the photos in question were also studied but were deemed infeasible.

The “circle game” hand gesture began as part of a juvenile “made-you-look” game but has been appropriated in recent years by white supremacists.

The cover of the 2018-19 ‘Tabula’ student yearbook was designed by late Oak Park and River Forest High School student Thomas Hunt, who died May 4 in a multi-car crash in Oak Park. (OPRF High School)

So, it would have been an emotional moment when seniors got their yearbooks that had been designed by their late classmate, but, too bad …

… “It is our hope, if we get the books back by June 18, we have a special event at school for seniors to get their official yearbooks and get them signed,” Pruitt-Adams said. …

Board member Matt Baron, who along with board member Tom Cofsky voted against reprinting the books, said he went “back and forth” over the issue, but came to a decision after seeing the photos in question.

“What I saw provided me with the context that so many of us have lacked as this conversation has escalated on social media and in other spaces,” Baron said. “Before viewing the photos, I fully expected a certain ‘type’ of student, specifically white boys, would be overwhelmingly represented among those making the hand gesture. The actual situation encompasses a cross-section of about 50 students from throughout the entire student body, cutting across gender, race, grade as well as activity or club type.”

Board president Jackie Moore said her immediate concern was for all OPRF students, and expressed disappointment at some of the comments she’s heard and received.

“We never said the book was not coming out,” Moore said. “At the end of the day, integrity matters. I would never want a symbol of this high school to represent, for anybody, harm. That is what the potential is for having this book come out as-is. If we care about all of our students, we have to stand behind them. We have to do better. I am not willing to do that on the back of students who would be harmed by this.”

A lovely future today’s youth have to look forward to, in which their employers will be expected to check through their old high school yearbooks looking for now verboten ways to hold your hands, such as index finger touching thumb, and fire them.

    Board president Jackie Moore is not willing to do better (and therefore doesn’t care about all the kids) on the back of students that would be harmed by releasing the original? If she’s on the back of students, does that mean that the students are prone (which is “planking,” another white supremacist photo trick mocking slavery)?

    Being from Cleveland and attending Concordia Teachers College in River Forest in the late 70’s/early 80’s it struck me as odd that OPRFHS even existed. Talk about two cities that had little if anything in common except for being adjacent to each other and sharing a HS really seemed odd. I hated walking by the Oak Park library because it literally was surrounded by dirty hippies. I was careful not to walk on any lawns in RF because it could have been owned by a Mob Figure. Or Paul Harvey. I guess the better off RF kids went to parochial schools in the area. Fenwick for the boys and Trinity for the girls.

  39. Board president Jackie Moore: “If we care about all of our students, we have to stand behind them.”

    This is a very popular lie among the pc commissars. They always say they don’t want to offend anyone, when they make sure to offend almost everyone (e.g., by banning Christmas songs).

    Any policy or act by such a body is bound to offend someone. Thus, if those who talk like Jackie Moore really cared about everyone, they would never do the things they do, after making such statements.

    Another lie: That the o.k. sign is white supremacist.

    She doesn’t care about the students at all. If anything, she’s a sadistic bully. And a racist.

    I just looked her up. I thought maybe she was a white woman, using her position to harm white kids, in order to suck up to black supremacists. But she’s “black” (app. 50%).

    OPRF also has a “director of equity.” Guess what race he is.

    The school is only 54% white. It’s 23% black, 11% Hispanic, and 8% two or more races (and only 3% Asian). It’s been ruined.

    In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

    This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; one that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?). Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

    Following the arrest and punishment of Lavrentiy Beria, the head of the NKVD, in 1953 the encyclopedia—ostensibly in response to overwhelming public demand—mailed subscribers to the second edition a letter from the editor[14] instructing them to cut out and destroy the three-page article on Beria and paste in its place enclosed replacement pages expanding the adjacent articles on F.

    2- yet the only people who are triggered into censorious rage by the okay sign’s very appearance are perhaps the single most Privileged Whites out there….assuming this tempting tart will momentarily be taking to Twitter to signal her venemous virtue to one and all (just as soon as she can find her purple wig), wouldja take a look at that living room!

    “If you tell a big enough lie, and you tell it often enough, it will be believed,” read the quote.

    It’s chilling that this is the thing being exorcised by the morality cargo cult. Isn’t this inarguably true? Isn’t this something we want kids to know? Are there parents who do not want their kids to know that mass media can make lies seem true? If this isn’t the case, does this mean Democrats will shut up about the Russian hackers?
    This is a garbled quote frequently used by anti-Nazis to pretend that Goebbels was boasting to the German people about lying to the German people. It’s actually in reference to a forgotten but once-central global concern, the mass-media lying campaign that enabled World War One. Numerous books and articles were written on this idea in all languages. Robert Graves and Siegfried Sassoon both talk about it. After the war, the conclusion was rapidly and broadly reached that everyone had been sold a bill of goods by lying newspapers. Edward Bernays wrote his pamphlet Propaganda in response to that conclusion. But now in the age of China we just censor everything.

    We never received our yearbooks until the next fall, so my class wasn’t able to do this either. I think this is common due to widespread incompetency and failure to meet deadlines. Not due to yearbook photo pranks. I would have been nice to have close friends and memorable people sign it.
    My grandpa was his class treasurer, he lost class president to football star joe paterno. They signed each other’s yearbooks and it’s neat to look through it. He graduated in January 1945. Brooklyn prep had two graduating classes each year. The early graduation allowed him to join the navy, and he shipped out to San Francisco before the end of the war. He toed the line and never ventured far from base. Marines who had seen combat were a different story. They raised hell when they were off the base, especially the night before they mobilized. There was no guarantee they’d come back alive.

Some become woke pansexual it/they POC to fit in with “Blue America,” while others become white supremacists because they think that’ll make them fit in with “Red America.” (Contrary to what the media believes, the best pickup line for a good Southern Baptist girl is “I love you almost as much as I love the State of Israel.” Instead you have people with Groyper avatars patting themselves on the back for typing “le jews” instead of “los judios.”)

    Being a white supremacist is an unpleasant, despised, job, but it is needed to ensure the legitimacy of the American state, so like all of those jobs it falls to the humble (92% Mayan, 5% Aztec, 1% African, 2% European) immigrant to carry it out.

    Gotcha. I’m sure it made a lot of sense in 1871.
