Virginia school board member tells graduates they’re entering world overwhelmed by racism, individualism

A Fairfax County School Board member gave a fiery commencement speech last week in which she warned the graduating – mostly minority – high schoolers that they are about to step into a capitalist world filled with racism, white supremacy and “extreme versions of individualism.”

Abrar Omeish, the school board’s lone Muslim member, delivered the keynote address before a graduation ceremony for Justice High School in Falls Church, Va. on June 7.

The president of the student government introduced her, noting that she campaigned for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and that her father, Esam Omeish, was a “leader and board member of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center” – the namesake of a mosque attended by two 9/11 hijackers in 2001, and the radical imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, and Nidal Hasan, the 2009 Fort Hood shooter.
