Angelo Kyle is a proud promoter and sponsor of the “Lake County Afro Fest” a festival celebration of “Pride, Tradition and Culture” held on along the Waukegan lakefront.
Here are some more of the moron’s comments (compliments of the Lake County Sun):
President Angelo Kyle said he attended the event in the past and would prefer to see the Forest Preserves focus on environmental issues such as climate change.
There were a considerable number of Confederate flags and a number of other things I took into consideration, Kyle said.
In 2015, the district staged Civil War Days shortly after South Carolina removed the battle flag from its state Capitol. At the time, forest preserves officials said Confederate flags were not being displayed inappropriately at the Lake County event and were used in a historical context.
Kyle, who is African American, said on Tuesday that history is written by the victors, and he believes there is only one side to the story being told at re-enactment events.
Our ancestors told us what really happened. Did you know that black soldiers were put on the front line in the North and Southern front lines so they would be killed first? he asked fellow board members.
