Our reporter who exposed the the existence of a racist router broadcast in Niles, IL that has been very pointedly ignored by the Niles Police Department for over two YEARS has uncovered yet another interesting fact about Niles, IL, which bills itself as the “All America City”: it runs a fake “anti-discrimination hotline” out of its Village Hall!
Our correspondent, who brought this whole sordid business to our attention a week ago, has been trying for three days now to reach the Niles, IL “anti-discrimination hotline” – which is nothing but an answering machine! – to no avail.
The Village of Niles, IL website’s homepage features a prominently displayed link labeled “EQUALITY FAIRNESS Community Relations Commission. Clicking on the link brings you to the “Community Relations Commission” page, where the Commission’s work is described thusly:
“The CRC has a mission to promote fairness and eliminate discrimination in Niles. If you believe you are the victim of discrimination, please contact the CRC hotline at (847) 600-5440 or email us at CommunityRelations@vniles.com” This is the number our correspondent called; it is nothing but an answering machine with the following message: “This is the Niles Community Relations Commission Hotline. The Commission has a mission to promote fairness and eliminate discrimination in Niles. If you believe you are the victim of discrimination, please leave your name and telephone number, and a representative of the commission will return your call as soon as possible. Thank you.”
Our correspondent has left his name and phone number twice now; the last time was on Friday, October 19th. He has yet to receive a return call from this phony “hotline”.
[UPDATE: Still no returned phone call from the Niles, IL “anti-discrimination hotline” as of the end of the business day on Monday, 22 October, 2012.]
