The Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of The Faith Community of St. Sabina, accuses the Southside Catholic Conference of racism after its board voted 11-9 to reject the membership application of the St. Sabina Academy elementary school. Most of the athletic league’s current members are predominantly white schools from the South Side and suburbs, while St. Sabina, in Auburn-Gresham on the South Side, is all black. Board directors say the decision was based on security concerns for visiting children, coaches and parents.
