At the May 4 Policy meeting, an agenda item was funding a study titled “Approval for Professional Services Contract for Research Justice Study for Communities of Color in Clackamas County with Coalition for Communities of Color.” The study would help the county “gain better understanding of the needs of population groups that continue to experience racial disparity in order to better address those needs and ensure that we the goals of our strategic plan are achieved for all people.”

Of course, Shull was opposed to this. In a truly blindingly insensitive rant, he complained that there are more poor white people than non-white people and that everyone in this country has equal opportunity.
