Over and over, Mark Shull has shown his lack of understanding of racial justice issues.
Shull claims “Black Lives Matter is not about black lives mattering or any other life mattering. BLM is a pawn for the rise of neo Marxism.”
In a public speech, he refused to acknowledge Black Lives Matter, stating “All lives matter,” which has become a coded response for denigration of the BLM movement.
He opposed studying racial justice in Clackamas County.
He also opposed the removal of racist Confederate statues.
Shull proposed a county ordinance that compared checking COVID-19 vaccine status to racial segregationist Jim Crow laws. As a result, his fellow commissioners voted to restrict his role in serving as a liaison to county boards and commissions.
