Chicago Professors Slam Obama Center For Car Privilege
A new Obama Presidential Center that is being planned in Chicago has drawn sharp criticism from college professors and community activists for a variety of social issues. Among the various concerns is the idea that a 450 car parking lot is socially regressive because it privileges cars and those who can afford them. The idea that Obama`s own base is opposing his presidential center in Chicago for social issues like car privilege is laughable in itself; however the reality is that this is the underlying goal of equality- The idea that if some people are too poor to afford a car that no one should be afforded the privilege of a parking spot. Perhaps these activists can convince Chicago to not only do away with the socially regressive parking lots but to get rid of roads there all together.
