National Parks Try to Appeal to Minorities

Kirk Johnson, New York Times, September 5, 2013

Thrusting out into the Pacific Ocean, Olympic National Park can feel like a lost world, with its ferny rain forests, violent surf and cloud-shrouded peaks.

But to the four women who hiked down to the sand one recent afternoon, there was an added element of strangeness: race.

“We’ve been here for two days, walking around, and I can’t think of any brown person that I’ve seen,” said Carol Cain, 42, a New Jersey resident of Dominican and Puerto Rican roots, who was zipped up tight in her hooded, dripping rain jacket.

The National Park Service knows all too well what Ms. Cain is talking about. In a soul-searching, head-scratching journey of its own, the agency that manages some of the most awe-inspiring public places is scrambling to rethink and redefine itself to the growing number of Americans who do not use the parks in the way that previous—mostly white—generations did.

Only about one in five visitors to a national park site is nonwhite, according to a 2011 University of Wyoming report commissioned by the Park Service, and only about 1 in 10 is Hispanic—a particularly lackluster embrace by the nation’s fastest-growing demographic group.

One way the service has been fighting to break through is with a program called American Latino Expeditions, which invited Ms. Cain and her three colleagues. Groups like theirs went to three parks and recreation areas this summer—participants competed for the spots, with expenses paid for mostly through corporate donations—part of a multipronged effort to turn the Park Service’s demographic battleship around.

GirlTrek, a national nonprofit group, organizes fitness-oriented park hikes for African-Americans. REI, the big recreation retailer, and Aramark, which manages lodging in some national parks, are sponsoring expeditions through the American Latino Heritage Fund of the National Park Foundation, a Congressionally chartered nonprofit group. New recruiting efforts to diversify the Park Service’s employee base—also largely white—are working with urban youth who might scoff at the idea of being a ranger in the wild, but could gravitate toward history, science or construction jobs.

New attractions are part of the mix, too. National monuments managed by the Park Service have been created in the past few years to recognize more minority figures in American history, like Cesar Chavez, the farm labor organizer, and Harriet Tubman of Underground Railroad fame.

“The future is diverse,” said Scott Welch, a spokesman for Columbia Sportswear, which provided clothing to expedition groups this summer and has been working with GirlTrek. “If you want to be a brand for the future, you’ve got to embrace that.”

But the new effort goes further, to the question of how, and how much, the parks themselves must change to attract a fundamentally different audience. Wireless access, for example—still nonexistent in much of the Park Service universe—could divide older park visitors from minorities and young people, the so-called millennial generation, who want to share the experience live in social media with their peers.

{snip}

But the reality that going to a park, at least for now, means encountering mostly white people is its own potential barrier. Research by the Park Service says some members of minority groups have said they fear they would feel unwelcome.

    They keep doing this over and over and over. You can’t pay people to acquire class or culture or wisdom.

    We’ve been here for two days, walking around, and I can’t think of any brown person that I’ve seen…

    And the problem is???…

    • Erasmus

      In my youth I was an avid back-country hiker, and no Latinos and blacks was one of the best things about a trip to the wilderness.

      • rebellisMMXII

        My experience has been that Latinos don’t venture too far from the reach of their vehicles blaring their retched music.

        • Mike Conrad

          Well, they do go far enough to dump their garbage all over the ground. So they can feel more at home. Visit Latin America and you’ll see it’s just how things are done.

    • DavidSNESGAMER

      The NY Times is racist. They’re saying that blacks must behave more like whites: have the same culture, hobbies, etc.

      Why do you want to make blacks like you, NY Times? Why do you hate their culture?

      • me

        For the same reasons we ALL hate their violent, degenerate culture.

      • Sick of it

        Because the people pushing “multiculturalism” actually want everyone to act exactly the same way. Like machines off an assembly line.

      • plaintruthforidiots

        The NY Times isn’t ‘white’, it’s JEWISH.
        Until you NAME THE JEW, you are part of the problem.
        Who do you think is behind all of this ‘diversity’ nonsense? Try using the internet.

        • Spartacus

          I think he was being sarcastic…

          • vladdy1

            But if it works….use it. Like how ’bout we start writing cr***** and “the cr word”?

      • dean53

        The problem is that many older white business owners (REI, etc) and government employees employed in the outdoor rec industry will see their fiefdoms diminish along with the vanishing white demographic. Hence the desperate attempt to make darkies act like whities in order to maintain the job &business status quo. Sort of like tanning salons going out of business as the populace darkens.

        • Erasmus

          If REI wants to maintain its customer base, then it needs to make sure this country still has plenty of disposable income for their leisure products. Lots of poor, uneducated blacks and latinos doesn’t look like a very lucrative market to me.

          When the cultural Marxists help to brown America, they’re going to get a country, like it or not, that looks and acts a lot more like Zimbabwe than Norway.

          • Greg Thomas

            That’s right. REI is expensive as hell. I doubt some welfare black or latino will purchase anything from that store. Especially when they can buy a tent and hoodie from Wal-Martinez.

      • TheAntidote

        Yu rite! Dat sheit beez rayciz!

      • Jacobite2

        The Times doesn’t believe that for a minute. What the Left is working on is a USA where no white person can go anywhere at any time without seeing some ghetto youths lurking behind a redwood. There must be no place for whites to hide and feel safe. No school where white kids can walk home alone or go to the restroom during school hours. This is what the HUD computer database on every neighborhood’s racial makeup is for. No more white suburbs either.

    • 1stworlder

      If you see one they have pot plot growing.

      • me

        And automatic weapons on hand if you get too ‘nosy’. What a friggin’ joke our government is.

  • APaige

    Well…there goes the forest.

    • Oil Can Harry

      This just in: Experts are at a loss to explain a recent surge of robberies, rapes and flash mobs in our national parks.

      And now, the weather…

      • me

        Yogi Bear won’t be the only one committing grand larceny if the NYT rag has its way. “Remember, only YOU can prevent forest fires…and ‘flash mobs’….and bear rape….”

        • Whitetrashgang

          You know I am so glad the wild animals in Africa have a chance to take those groids down.

      • ViktorNN

        It must be those “teens” again.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Also murders and forrest fires. And now back to football.

    • mark eaves

      Hey; bears and mountain lions have to eat too!

  • NeanderthalDNA

    “But the reality that going to a park, at least for now, means encountering mostly white people is its own potential barrier.”

    Well…ban White people?

    • NorthSea

      “….some members of minority groups have said they fear they would feel unwelcome.” Whyever would whites make them feel unwelcome?

      • WhiteGuyInJapan

        Maybe minorities are concerned that even the bears will move away from them.

        • NorthSea

          Bears are intelligent creatures, they would.

    • rebellisMMXII

      “multipronged effort to turn the Park Service’s demographic battleship around.” That sounds like the goal.

    • Jerrybear

      It’s so awful to have to encounter cleanly polite white people. Oh the horror!

      • Sick of it

        Next they’ll concoct an initiative to drive away Canadian tourists in favor of Pakistani and Somali tourists…

    • sbuffalonative

      That’s a pretty remarkable statement. Blacks don’t like to go there because they have to deal with feeling unwelcome by white people. We all say it but imagine if the roles were reversed.

      • Erasmus

        When your kids run around tearing things up, urinating and defecating wherever they feel like, taking drugs and using the animals for target practice, expect not to feel welcome.

        They are their own worst enemies. Is there even a term for personal responsibility in any of the languages of sub-Saharan Africa?

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Yeah, sambo – go play the knock-out game with that grizzly…

          • Erasmus

            I have little doubt that as more Trayboons go into the national parks and wildernesses a lot of them will be attacked by wild life.

            Picture the headlines now: “Disproportionate attacks on blacks prove that grizzlies and black bears are racist.”

          • Bears aren’t racist. Polar bears and grizzlies mate and produce cubs.

        • 1stworlder

          there isn’t even a word for half or any abstract concepts in them. The reason Egyptians lost the ability to read hieroglyphics is they got Detrioted.

      • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

        Well, if they cared about what White people think, then the only practical solution would be segregation. Black don’t want to go where they see unwelcoming Whites. Whites don’t want to go where they see unwelcoming Blacks. Sounds like Jim Crow had the right idea.

    • ViktorNN

      Encountering mostly non-whites is a barrier for me and my family going to many places in this country – but there’s no government agency trying to address this “demographic battleship.”

      For example, my local neighborhood public school that is literally 90% Mexican with over half being Mexicans that are in this country illegally.

  • [Guest]

    More proof of this nation’s total, unbridled racial madness.

  • rebellisMMXII

    Ugh! The only time that I have been at a wildlife park when a diverse group of youths were there (some sort of field trip) they where rude…trashed the area where they were…and we’re generally out of control. I hope this plan fails!

    • Jerrybear

      Minorities seem to be attracted to overpopulated cesspools. National parks, forests, nature, exploration is a white thing.

      • sbuffalonative

        Minorities are high maintenance. They need to be spoon fed and have others wipe their behinds. Urban areas concentrate all the services they require.

        That’s one reason it’s going to be difficult and expensive moving blacks into outer suburbs. They won’t have access to all the services they need. Creating that infrastructure to accommodate them is going to be expensive.

        • 1stworlder

          No nearby ERs for them to take their niglet with a diaper rash.

        • BonusGift

          Good point; and a basic problem for those who would try to kill us off. It is also why, regardless of the attempts to coddle and encourage them (even pay them), certain activities are still almost exclusively white, for example mountaineering, that and sickle cell anemia. Giving a black male a nice coat and even paying them to show up doesn’t eliminate the need to have, for example, blood cells that actually absorb oxygen at altitude (again, love that sickle cell) and an attitude that doesn’t scream ‘what’s in it for me.’

          • There’s a long list of other activities blacks shun: sailing, hobby woodworking, surfing, bowhunting, hang-gliding, and gourmet cooking to name a few, and what these all have in common is that they require dedication in order to become good at them. It’s not an issue of simply being able to spend money to achieve the desired result: writing a check for a nice catamaran doesn’t make one a competent sailor any more than a trip to the local sporting goods store for a Barnett crossbow makes one an archer.

            Blacks gripe constantly about being financially disadvantaged, but their real disadvantage is more spiritual. They’re shallow. Their obsession with form over substance is marvelously demonstrated by the fact that the first black millionaire in the US was the woman who invented hair-straightener – so they could look more like us. Uganda and Namibia think they need space programs, because white countries have those. Perhaps they should concentrate on literacy instead, but unlike pretending to go to the moon, educating people is actual work. Not all white nations have space programs. Iceland doesn’t have one, but they do have 100% literacy. Situated just below the Arctic Circle, the nation has a short growing season and is heavily glaciated with no oil wealth, but they have a high living standard anyway. Namibia, on the other hand is rich in minerals, yet half the population lives below the UN’s international poverty level, and 15% have AIDS. Namibia, despite having no foreign enemies and almost the lowest adult life-expectancy in the world also spends 3.7% of its GDP on the military. A coast guard to prevent fish-poaching in their 200 mile EEZ would make more sense, but like improving literacy and health education, a coast guard isn’t flashy.

            Mentally, they’re children.

          • BonusGift

            Yes, mentally they are like violent children that scream and live to be noticed. And, yes, they tend to eschew that which does not bring external validation.

      • John Smith

        Well now some Hispanics are attracted to our national parks and forests. They’re the ones you read about using them to grow dope in.

    • Rick Brooks

      From what I can tell, most of the non-white yoofs at nature preserves, parks, etc. were dragged there by whites. I rarely see a black mother and black father taking out their own little kiddies for some fresh air. Just last month I visited a state forest in a 95% white area with a lake, hiking trails, picnic areas, etc. All of the sudden and out of no where, an unruly herd of yoofs appeared; it turns out they belonged to a summer camp and were brought there by their white handlers. It was great till they showed up. Diversity sucks.

      • NorthSea

        Would be a shame should the “teens” encounter a blackbear sow with cubs. Now THAT’S Diversity!

        • rebellisMMXII

          You just hit a point that should be brought up….blacks don’t like wildlife. I live in a wooded apartment area and the blacks here truly hate animals….if they see an opossum or raccoon whatever happens to be, they either try to attack it or demand something be done.

          • Erasmus

            You are correct. When whites see a raccoon, they’ll usually watch it from a respectful distance. When blacks see one, they freak out.

            It does make me think. Fear and anger are constant emotions with them, and their reactions are usually always over-the-top, seldom rational or carefully thought out. You think we might have something biologic at play here?

            Nah, couldn’t be that.
            (sarcasm off)

          • NorthSea

            That’s silly. We ALL know it’s just a social construct.

          • NorthSea

            “Demand something be done” about raccoons or opossums. That’s funny. I have blackbears and gray fox in my yard up north here. The “teens” would have a stroke.

          • I have a red fox sitting on my lap as I type. He does things about raccoons and opossums; Maverick gives them a good shake.

          • NorthSea

            Did you raise him from a kit?

          • No; he was the end of a Russian experiment, and was going to be destroyed.

          • Mike Conrad

            Ghetto bunnies killed every single bit of wildlife in the (once-) beautiful place where my great-aunt lived. It was a spectacular park with lakes, herons, ducks, what have you. The ghetto kids came with rocks and killed or drove off every single creature.

      • Erasmus

        Nature preserves are small Edens that invite quiet contemplation and reflection, things that most blacks and latinos desperately in need of constant stimulation don’t care for. Bringing more of them into the wilderness is introducing the serpent into paradise.

        They have their nail parlors, bars, pool halls, shopping malls and churches, where they feel comfortable. Let them stay there.

  • Lewis33

    I learned to appreciate state and national parks while camping with my dad…and there’s your problem.

  • rebellisMMXII

    “New attractions are part of the mix, too” like flash mobs. This makes me sick…the one place/thing/activity not yet poisoned…

    • Lagerstrom

      These do-gooders have ruined just about everything, now this. They must sit around ‘brainstorming’ thinking up ways to ruin everything they consider to be ‘too white’.

      • NM156

        Here’s the result of successful leftist mental-patient brainstorming in Joshua Tree Nat’l Park. Soon they’ll be calling gangbanging taggers’ art “urban petroglyphs”.

        • NorthSea

          Nice, that rock’s been sitting there a thousand years, and….it gets Diversified.

      • Erasmus

        Next up for diversification:
        – Opera and Ballet audiences
        – Opera and Ballet companies
        – High School and college chess clubs
        – Croquet and lawn bowling clubs…way, way too white
        – Polo clubs: Their membership needs to look a lot more like Obama’s Amerika.

        – Rose and horticultural societies
        – Kennel clubs and clubs for cat fanciers: The minority men will initially be beside themselves with joy to join a club dedicated to pussy.
        – Societies for creative anachronism: How do you know Merry Olde England of yesteryear wasn’t chock-a-block with brothers? Were you there? Haven’t you ever seen Kevin Costner’s “Robin Hood” ?
        -Women’s quilting clubs: They’re still fairly popular among women in small farming communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas. You need some Somalis among you, ladies. You’re too white.

        The list of places that are too white in America today is endless. Why it could take an affirmative-action president several life times between golf games and vacations to get the concentration of cocoa throughout the country just right.

    • A Freespeechzone

      It IS legal to be armed in National Parks……

  • Freedoooom

    This is why I love the smaller companies.

    There’s several smaller companies that make better camping gear with military like influence.

    Except Triple Aught Design. I have no idea why they advertise their products with a black guy who looks like he is going to go on a machete rampage.

    • You mean him? Yeah, I can see someone like him willingly doing things like these. A face like that is more likely to be staring back at me in a crime blotter.

      BTW, a “Stealth Hoodie?” What is that supposed to be, Undercover Trayvon?

      • 1stworlder

        He is escaping from prison

        • Erasmus

          It is so funny how they want to pretend that beneath it all, he’s really white.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Good idea, Rufus, stay in the water; the blood hounds will lose your scent.
        You probably don’t know how to swim. Be careful, you might step into water over your head. And drown? Maybe? Maybe? How tragic.

        • Erasmus

          Lack of diversity is another thing that can make pools still enjoyable places to be.

      • me

        “Stealth Hoodie” is hanging out with the bats for guana jenkem. This reminds me of a joke about angel wings that will get me deleted….LOL!

        • I know that joke, and just now told it to my wife. She just asked me why I don’t tell jokes about Japanese. I don’t know any. I know plenty about blacks and Mexicans, and how cheap the Scots are, how the Irish love to fight, but that’s about my limit.

          My favorite ethnic joke is about the Scotsman at a bar when the boyos are comparing scars from construction accidents and military mishaps. He finally says “Enough of your wee love bites,” and unbuttons his shirt. There is a horrible scar, livid purple with visible suture marks, running from his waist and it branches off near his collarbone. Visibly sickened at the sight, one asks, “Where did you get that?”

          “Autopsy”.

          • me

            Zombie Scotsman! LOL! He’s saving money on the burial plot, coffin, and headstone.
            Did you hear about Sweden’s new zoo?
            They built a fence around Norway.
            That’s my favorite Norwegian joke, and I’m Norsk! LOL!

          • Have you heard of the gay Scotsman?

            He liked women more than he liked money.

      • Mike Conrad

        What’s a “pant”?? And did they really say “stealth hoodie”?? ‘coz that’s racist

  • This subject is brought up here on Amren at least once a year.
    Someone said, “Put up signs that say ‘Whites Only’ or ‘No blacks allowed’, and you will soon have thousands of blacks descending upon these parks, led by our pal Al himself.”

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      Then put up such signs at the brink of an abyss. That will solve social problems.

  • CaptainCroMag

    We already pay them with our taxes to destroy our cities. Now we’re going to pay them to ruin our forests?

    One of the whole points of going to a nature preserve is to get away from the stress of city life. And a big component of that stress is having to deal with diversity every day. The last thing I want to see is some little headed, droopy pants, urban youth stinking up the forest.

    • Spartacus

      You know, this could be a good thing – There are no witnesses in the forest *hint*

  • kjh64

    Of for heaven’s sake, is there anywhere they don’t try to push minorities? Nobody is keeping Blacks and Browns from national parks. If they’re not there, they obviously aren’t interested. How is that our problem?

    • robinbishop34

      Life is an Applebees commercial, you didn’t know that?

  • sbuffalonative

    The only way to get minorities into National Parks is to turn them into something they aren’t.

    Blacks and Hispanics can’t stand solitude. They have to have noise. They have to have walking trails they can drive cars on. They have to have everything together because they take no joy in the journey.

      Which is puzzling because most Bantus can’t swim. They must go to the beach to harass the ‘White wommens’.

      • KevinPhillipsBong

        In other words, tell your daughters, if a black harasses you at the beach, just go into the water – he won’t follow and if he does, just swim out a little further until…

        • Erasmus

          Maybe we should start a white-water kayaking club for inner city youfs.

          Wouldn’t you love to see Rachel Jeantel in a kayak?

          • At least Rachel Jeantel wouldn’t sink.

            A group in Denver once took “urban” yoofs and greaseritos whitewater rafting. It must have been an alien experience for them being in an area where there was nothing worth stealing.

    • JDInSanD

      I was at the beach in San Diego two weeks ago. I was actually surprised to see 3 blacks on the beach and an older couple bike riding on the boardwalk among the thousands.
      On Labor Day the news always reports on the the beach crowds while showing random shots of people there. They managed to focus on three black girls (sitting on the sand) not actually swimming. They interviewed two people and one was an old black guy who said words to the effect of, “Yeah, we come down here cuz it so dang hot back up in there.”

  • TheCogitator

    Beautiful surroundings, with no mud people. What is wrong with that? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

  • Truthseeker

    So let’s get this straight…a majority-white country creates state parks to cater to a majority-white population that tends to appreciate such things. The country becomes more diverse, and these new non-whites tend not to enjoy these parks so much. Therefore, the fact that you see mostly white people in these parks is proof that the parks aren’t doing enough to include minorities.

    Here’s a crazy idea: How about you let white people continue to do the things they like, and if no minorities want to join them, chalk it up to difference in tastes and preferences? This “lack of non-white participation is proof of white discrimination” mentality is absurd.

    This thinking all stems from the idea that whites are generic, identity-less humans with no distinct qualities. Anything whites create is just to be presumed, like the prerequisite blank canvas upon which a painting must be created. The non-whites give our society its color, similar to the way the colors of the painting are what attract us to it. Therefore, they expect whites to be malleable and conform to whatever non-whites do, because we’re nothing but foundational filler to them.

    We European-descended Americans are a unique group, and our ancestors built a great nation with little to no minority input. We must never be unaware or ashamed of that. The things we love are a part of us, and we need to embrace them, not self-flagellate because those hallowed minorities don’t share our interest in them.

    • rebellisMMXII

      Well said!

    • Spartacus

      Parks are racist !

      • robinbishop34

        Do you experience the political correctness in your country that we do?

        • Spartacus

          Nope. People on TV might occasionally pretend they give a damn, but in real life, I’ve never met anybody who cares. And I’m quite open about my beliefs, more so than here on Amren, where I would get censored.

          • Irishgirl

            So how much do you think it would cost me to move there?

          • Spartacus

            Well, the plane ticket alone is probably gonna cost you an arm and a leg. I wouldn’t recommend Bucuresti, where I live, since it’s crowded, polluted, overpriced, and people drive like maniacs .

            I would recommend Iași – it’s a poor city, but one of the Whitest in the world :

          • Sick of it

            Out of curiosity, what languages are commonly spoken in Romanian cities? Assuming more than one is common.

          • Just guessing here, but I’d start with “Romanian”. It’s a Latinate language, like French, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Italian. My sister studied French in high school, and can understand for context almost all the others.

            Across the Carpathians, Hungarian is widely spoken. I suspect most of the ethnic Germans were deported or killed after 1945.

          • Sick of it

            I know what Romanian is and that Romanians speak Romanian. Wasn’t sure of what other languages they speak.

          • Spartacus

            Romanian is the most spoken language, obviously. In Transilvania around a fifth of the population is Hungarian, and they speak Hungarian as a first language, and Romanian as a second one. That’s pretty much it. If you mean second-languages, English and French are the most widely spoken, followed by Italian and Spanish.

          • Sick of it

            Would you figure that a fluid English speaker could get around talking to people fine, including Hungarians in the area? A fluid French speaker? Also, how do folks feel about Americans in general?

            French and English is more than enough to get around here . Also, Americans are still pretty well viewed here, tho not like they used to . And about Hungarians – they don’t like anybody, and nobody likes them, so my advice would be to just stay away from them . Thankfully, their numbers are falling rapidly, so they’ll stop pestering people in a few generations .

            That’s interesting re: Hungarians. Not sure how they are in their homeland or Europe generally, but they can be friendly over here.

            Well, their idiot party, the UDMR, has been trying to keep investments out of the few majority-hungarian areas in Transilvania, being afraid that it might alter the demographics too much. As a result, the only 2 counties where they’re the majority are dirt-poor, have the lowest fertility rate, and the highest emigration rate.

      Differences in taste and preference are forbidden. “Verboten” in German. What a formidable sounding word, that “verboten”!

      Not to mention, has anybody bothered to consider that it might be a “class” thing. Don’t working class and low income whites also prefer to spent their precious free time barbecuing with their “homies” and kin? Maybe some people would just rather not spend a day with some arrogant lady in a color coordinated “outdoor” outfit and flat shoes, toting around an oversize bag and giant binoculars and an attitude to match.

      Author C.S. Lewis very articulately warned us about the danger of people who tyrannize us in the name of our own good.

      • Lots of working class whites enjoy the outdoors, especially our national and state parks. Most of the cost of admission is really just the gasoline needed to get there. Someone really struggling in a hard way wouldn’t be able to afford that or the time away from work, but for almost everyone else, the national and state parks are a real class-leveler.

    • BonusGift

      I agree it is absurd, but you assume that they merely want to ruin our happiness (and they do, but it is goes beyond that). Ultimately they are just gearing up mentally for genocide and cannot square the circle so they demonstrate such an exaggerated level of cognitive dissonance as to be absurd (e.g., as a general rule blacks destroy nature but we need blacks to love nature but blacks hate nature and are the human equivalent of parasites towards actual humans and nature …; which is why they always destroy nature). Remember, the experimentalists definition of insanity is repeating an experiment over and over yet expecting a different result. This national parks ‘problem’ isn’t a problem as much as another version of the insanity (i.e., expecting, e.g., blacks and squat monsters to act in a way they are incapable of).

            My basic knowledge is from a few books I read on the subject (Fireforce by Chris Cocks, which I recommend; and one or two about the Selous Scouts). My impression was that, and ignoring forays into Mozambique, was that it was more savannah than jungle, yet most of the good guys were shot at relatively close range. The number of jumps in the time they did them was really impressive. And, yes, it seems they had a fair number of American Vietnam Vets like yourself. I believe the author (a native Rhodesian who now lives in South Africa) still presents it as a Marxist issue and not a racial one. It amazes me how hard it is for some just to blurt out the truth, and especially for someone who really should have nothing to lose. It is a version of the blaming the mismanagement of cities like Detroit on politics alone vs. blaming the people that chased away YT and f_ed it all up. By definition, and effectively regardless of the political philosophy, black rule is the kiss of death for YT literally, and death and misery for anything that moves and some that don’t.

          • NorthSea

            Traveling through England 35 years ago, I met an Aussie who just arrived from Rhodesia. He told of the experience of going thru Rhodesian customs at the airport. Sounds like watching them go thru one’s luggage was akin to that old Samsonite luggage ad where the apes hurl bags all over the cage.

          • BonusGift

            Yes, I vaguely remember the ad. Kind of watched a personal version of that as I was going through Kenya/Nairobi airport some years ago (early 90s) after getting out of Tanzania and pushing my departure date up with the attendant payoffs and general blackmail and robbery that goes with trying to get my gear and shell shocked companion out. What makes it even more disturbing is that they have armed apes near you as they rifle through your luggage and you are, of course, unarmed. I vaguely remember the heat, the smell, and me swearing with a few sullen apes with guns hanging over their shoulders and my buddy with a look of horror and distress.

    I camp a lot. Most National Parks are jammed full. Often, reservations are required a year in advance. What the Nation really needs is MORE PARKS WITH MORE SPACES AND BETTER (read decent) RESTROOMS AND SHOWERS. Park Rangers drive trucks (all new) and man the toll booths. They don’t lift a finger to repair or maintain anything. That’s all contracted out. Because there’s no permanent maintenance staff, broken stuff goes unfixed. The sites themselves are policed by a volunteer–the so-called “camp host”, who in exchange for living there free, keeps an eye on things.

    So, instead of addressing the real problems America’s campsites have, we get liberal do-gooders taking these brown people by the hand and literally paying them to displace an eager white family.

    I freaking give up.

        Go in the winter even. National parks and wildernesses areas are glorious places when they’re buried in snow, and all you hear are the sounds or rushing water, the wind through the trees and the occasional cry of a bird.

        Any extended trip in Winter does require careful preplanning, which alone guarantees that 99.9% of diversity is not going to give such an endeavor even a second thought.

        Take your son or daughter and wife during the Christmas or Spring breaks.

        As I said it does require careful planning, but the land buried all in white (maybe that’s why the shines hate snow?) is an enchanting place, and it’s a good exercise in character building, pre-planning and problem-solving.

        My closest friends still are ones I went on some very rigorous hikes on, through some very harsh terrain. Seeing how they react, what they do teaches what they’re really made of.

  • Erasmus

    That WAS the beauty of hiking in back-country wilderness: No diversity.

    When Kyreesha and her 8 kids (all by different daddies), arrive in state and national parks, they’ll bring their ghetto habits and anti-social behavior with them. Bathrooms and shelters will be vandalized. Litter and syringes will be everywhere. They will use the local wildlife for target practice.

    Really. What complete and utter crap. They aren’t concerned how whites feel about them coming into our country, or our neighborhoods, but, for some inexplicable reason, spending a week in a national park around a small number of White people, could make them feel “unwelcome”. Illegally colonizing our country, well, I can only surmise they feel “welcomed”. I sincerely hope their reluctance to enter the wilderness with Whites, stems from the knowledge that people can disappear very easily. And, more than anything, I wish their reluctance was based on reality. The sad truth, however, is that there is no safer group of people to be with anywhere, anytime, than Whites who go to national parks. And, once again, the gov. who hates us, has found another way to attack our serenity and peace of mind. Better to sacrifice Yosemite, et al, than to back down from forcing us to mix with others. At home, at work, and now in our leisure activities. Our enemies are relentless, and, they’re winning.

    August 30, 2013:

    “The Rim fire has burned 246,350 acres, making it the third-largest fire in state history, the U.S. Forest Service said Friday.

    Now we are learning that the fire was likely started by marijuana growers and that means Mexican cartels may well be the culprits.

    Officials have said lightning strikes and campfires started by illegal immigrants are the two most common causes of fires in the forest south of Interstate 8.”

    — San Diego Union Tribune, 9/14/07

    In Arizona’s National Parks, public lands and National Forests:

    “Drug smuggling, murders, human trafficking and other illegal activities have become prevalent on America’s public lands, including National Parks, National Forests, Wildlife Refuges, and other protected areas near our Southern border. The federal government has posted signs along a major interstate highway in Arizona, more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, warning travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and a local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.”

    “When Park Ranger Steve Bolyard checked out a report of black paint on some of the park’s majestic saguaros…he did not expect to see ganglike calligraphy covering more of them than he could easily count.

    Rangers eventually found at least 45 graffiti tags in the park, including 16 on the slow-growing and fragile saguaro, the paint obscuring part of the green skins where the plants store the chlorophyll to draw nourishment from the sun.”

    Black and Browns — especially Blacks — don’t care anything about national parks or activities such as birding, hiking, camping out, etc. Where I live I’ve been a member of the Audubon Society for many years and have also belonged to three different hiking clubs. Never once have I seen a Black — or any other race for that matter — only Whites. I admit lack of diversity is one reason I enjoy these trips. It’s not because any one actively tries to keep them out. Our local Audubon headquarters is located in the city’s downtown where all the Blacks stay and for that very reason — to encourage their participation. I admit I’m glad they don’t have any interest as I would have to cancel my membership, go out on my own, or with only a couple of friends. It’s wonderful to enjoy nature away from the ravages of diversity.

      • It was pretty much the same with World War Two battle reenactment when I was involved in the 1990s. I only recall ever seeing one black, and since Walter owned a hobby store, he was one of the OK ones.

    So now they’re trying to close off one of our last refuges from the black and brown hordes.

    • ms_anthro

      It’s all part of the greater plan to continue to demoralize and disenfranchise all White people everywhere in the countries their ancestors built for them.

      Resist.

  • White Mom in WDC

    Why?

  • me

    Because the liberal ‘greeenies’ are having cognitive dissonance’ again. They’re torn between preserving the forests and letting their pet Bantus and Mestizo squat monsters have ‘equality’, which will destroy the forests. Where’s Marlon Perkins when you need him? “Let’s watch as the wild Bantu tries to cope in the wilds of North America, rather than sub-Sahara Africa. No, that’s not a dog–that’s a bear cub. And here comes mother bear….”

    • vladdy1

      They’ll bring their pit bulls and then sue when the dogs are attacked by other animals….

    • eduard

      Bearing in mind that there are far more wild animals in Africa than in North America. There’s no comparison. The third world savages are heavenly scared of a snake, especially black mambas, more scared of the tokoloshe, which doesn’t exist.

  • prunepit

    Races have evolved in particular places and the evolution of a race includes the formation of deeply-held attitudes about the natural world.
    My son has lived in France for the past ten years and has traveled with his family, explored, camped, hiked, studied, photographed and collected all over the country. Even though France has enormous populations of Muslims, Asians, and Africans, he has never seen a non-white person in any natural place – including the forested area near his urban home. He recently asked an Iraqi refugee why he never took his family into that forest where it is cool and quiet with numerous trails, lakes, wildflowers, and even ancient megaliths; the answer was that the forest frightened his wife! Not only are the people of the north, foreign, but the natural world they live in is frightening.

    • I would love to visit French WW-1 battlefields.

    • Erasmus

      Well said.

    • BonusGift

      I do think certain places do generally, and for want of a better term, freak (i.e., as a general rule) certain people and/or groups of people out. Forests can be disorienting and forbidding, but also just plain relaxing and enchanting for the right person or group. I used to mountaineer quit a bit and just loved glaciers, whereas, outside of a Sherpa or the odd Japanese, I’ve never run into any blacks or other ‘minorities’, never (at least back when I used to do it, i.e. before I got married). Deserts that are largely devoid of human life may also be like that as well. If devoid of people they can be kind of bleak and forbidding, yet there is beauty to them if you are the right person or group of people, but blacks must generally be uncomfortable in those environments and certainly in no rush to get there as, by definition, there is no gibsmedat there. I think you are right, they are frightened; and they would have to spend resources to do it, and we all know that that isn’t going to happen without YTs blood and treasure paying for it.

      • Forbidding? Forests are wonderful! They’re each a little different. So are deserts. We took a hike above Boulder with my mother last week, back behind NCAR. Palmer Park here in Colorado Springs is completely different, full of ancient juniper trees.

    I can’t wait ’till tomorrow. My husband and I will be spending the day canoeing 12 miles down the Elkhorn Creek here in KY. We do it every Saturday that we can. The only diversity along those 12 miles will be an OCCASIONAL bantu sitting in a lawn chair beside the creek fishing. There will be other white people in canoes and kayaks. We say “hello” and “God bless America! What a great day!” to each other. We have instant connection to white strangers who also enjoy this beautiful country our ancestors gave us.

  • JDInSanD

    Aren’t our parks already over crowded? Don’t you have to make reservations to get into Yosemite? Don’t you have to park your car and take a shuttle bus at the Grand Canyon?

    Even San Diego actually has a commercial showing a smiling, non-threatening, “white hispanic” couple enjoying the amenities at San Diego Bay- nature preserve, restaurants, bike trails. The add begs hispanics to please use the bay that we’ve spent millions and decades converting from industrial to recreational uses.

    And the propaganda phrases they use to describe this so-called dilemma:
    strangeness
    soul-searching, head-scratching journey
    scrambling to rethink and redefine
    fighting to break through
    demographic battleship
    American Latino Heritage Fund of the National Park Foundation
    New attractions
    The future is diverse
    brand for the future, you’ve got to embrace that
    encountering mostly white people is its own potential barrier

  • NM156

    Is this article implying that we’ll have to subside cell towers in the backcountry of Death Valley and along the Bright Angel Trail in the Grand Canyon so low-IQ minorities can access online gaming, Facebook, and World Star Hip Hop? If so, we are quickly approaching the omega point. Something will have to burst.

  • Northerner

    There are economic factors involved. The average minority isn’t as wealthy as the average white family, so may find it more difficult to have money or time for recreation in these parks. Immigrants putting down roots are (understandably) more concerned about other things. Not feeling welcome adds to it, but likely isn’t a significant barrier.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Agreed. Minorities do whatever they WANT to do. Since when did “not feeling welcome” ever prevent blacks and browns from barging right on in anyway?

    • Erasmus

      A trip to a state park or national park for the entire family can be had for the price of a single major league baseball ticket.

      Cut back on one rock of crack per week, and by the end of the month Dontavious and Shaqwana will have more than enough money to pay for a day trip for themselves and the kids.

      True, a lot of states now charge admission fees, but that’s because the revenue that used to go to pay to keep up state parks now must go to pay for the welfare benefits of all those baby mommies and baby daddies.

      No one said diversity came cheap.

    • ms_anthro

      I don’t buy it. Poor and working class Whites often use our national and state parks as a relatively cheap form of recreation. “Minorities” could do the same, if they had the wherewithal and desire to do so. But they don’t.

      This is just another way to ruin a traditionally White activity and space. It’s nothing less than a psyops scheme, a form of psychological terrorism. Now your yearly family camping trip will no longer offer the escape from diversity that it once did? Now you have to share your favorite campsite with hooting apes and shrieking savages?

      And so they tighten the screws a little bit more.

  • 94122

    G*d Almighty-not again! These imbeciles never give it up, do they? Dibrancy doesn’t give a damn about what YT sees as the natural world. THEIR Natural world consists of the squalor and poverty that is part and parcel of their native countries, or exists within the remnants of the culture long since abandoned by the colonials. Their only interest is in acquiring material goods, preferably the kind that can be shown off to, for want of a better word, their “peers”. If Ms. Indigenous Adopted-Tiffany-Heather-Curare-Dart zipped up in her white man invention wants to see her “people” in nature, I suggest that she hop into her no-doubt-expensive car and head for the local mall. There, she will see Viversity in it’s natural element-along with what’s left of the poor, working non-diverse peoples.

    Not that I care about their junk, but do b*yc*tt REI at least. And perhaps call them and ask why they insist that the exploited and oppressed be subject to life in the wild without shelter, protection or food. Put a racial spin on it., a big, fat indignant one.

  • ViktorNN

    But the reality that going to a park, at least for now, means encountering mostly white people is its own potential barrier.

    So now even our mere existence is discriminatory against non-whites.

    Ever get the feeling that they won’t be happy until we shuffle off and die?

    • BonusGift

      Feeling? I think it’s quit clear to all but the most obtuse.

  • bubo

    Most hispanics and blacks are base level. Existential pursuits like enjoying the beauty of nature is lost on them. No amount of catering to brown minorities will change that fact.

  • Maybe they ought to open their eyes and get in touch with the British equivalents of their organisations, because, would you believe it, it seems to be exactly the same here!

    Of course, it is a mystery to our organisations too – so they have been racking their brains trying to come with schemes to entice “brown faces” to the hills and dales of England. Cue ‘outwards bounds’ schemes for “deprived children” to go kayaking in the Lake District, and schemes to bus these people in from the cities and suburbs.

    I am willing to bet the same will be the case in France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

    However, I can solve this dilemma for these organisations. I can save them millions of dollars in programmes, studies, schemes and much time puzzling over this ‘lack of diversity’ in the great outdoors……

    They are just not interested in it!

    There, I said it! It is a shocking revelation I know! They generally have no interest or inbuilt Western European desire to look after the forests, go hill walking, fishing, or anything else.

    For many of us, it is the ONLY escape we get from this lot. We do not want them parading through the countryside.

    I was once in the depths of the English countryside and walking down a country lane and saw two shapes milling over the horizon…..When they got closer, it was clearly two women in full burkha!

    I have never seen anything look so out of place in all my life. Further to this, as I headed over the brow of the hill, I saw a battered up Ford fiesta with what appeared to be their husband and brother trailing them every third of a mile in the car, to keep them in eye distance – whether for their own safety, or through lack of trust, I don’t know.

    • ViktorNN

      It’s very sad to think of the UK’s brown hordes spreading out from the cities and dirtying up Britain’s beautiful countryside, castles, henges, and villages.

      Those people don’t belong there and they NEVER will.

      • Thankfully, well, for the time being anyway, it is still very rare. That is perhaps what made it look even more out of place.

        I intend to make a bit of a retreat myself to somewhere a bit more away from them than I am now. However, the trouble is, we are getting sandwiched on all sides in this particular area.

        It does not matter where you seem to go, it does not change the fact that they are entrenched and expanding outwards from their current strongholds and it will only be a matter of time before you see the creep set in.

        Ah well, on that depressing note, I might as well seek to get a good 10 to 15 years somewhere, before I end up in the same situation I am in now. This area certainly isn’t going to get any better, that’s for sure.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      England has 1% of the world’s population and 1% of its arable land. What is being done — flooding this White homeland with fecund non-Whites from the 3rd world — fits the very definition of White genocide:

      Section C of the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide:

      ( c ) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

      Make sure, when the retribution starts, that you target those who are responsible for destroying England and the native-born English population.

      Ditto for any other White country — the US, Australia, France — whose leaders have encouraged third world immigration into White homelands.

      They are remote, misty, beautiful, quiet, best of all, require a bit of fitness. Or such was the case last time I explored there. Probably a matter of time before all green belts in the U.K. are leveled for construction of council housing. The pending hordes of incoming Roma have to go somewhere.

    I hope the Park Service is prepard to lay out a lot of cash to clean up after Latinos if they plan to force them to visit our National Parks. Have the Park people seen our borders? Do they really want the litter that Hispanics leave in their wake? Let’s leave well enough alone.

    • ms_anthro

      You know this won’t happen. Instead, finger-wagging articles will appear in all the usual places and Whites will be told they don’t do enough to care for the environment. Corrupt charities will hold out their paws for more donations and armies of White volunteers will be sent out to clean up after Third Worlders with room temperature IQs and no sense of shame or basic decency. The naive White volunteers will get to feel good about “doing something” to save the environment and their brown and black pets will continue to act as they always have and always will: not like us.

      And so the cycle of multicult will continue until we end this madness once and for all.

    I’m black African and I love camping. I’ve never tried hiking, but I’m sure I’d love that too. I’ve been reading a lot of survivalist literature lately so that has heightened my interest in the great outdoors.

    On one hand, I’d like to stay away from national parks so that racially conscious white people can enjoy them with each other. (I know that many of you said that one of the reasons you go to national parks is because of the lack of diversity.) But on the other hand, I’d like to enjoy them myself so I’ll definitely keep going.

    • ms_anthro

      You can share our parks as long as you promise to leave your animal brothers and sisters and cousins behind. We will tolerate you if you behave like a human. Your fambly is not welcome unless they can do the same.

      Whites don’t arbitrarily hate non-Whites. It’s your behavior that is repulsive and occasionally fatal to us. Get it? Take care not to regress to the mean of your genetic makeup and most Whites will have no problem leaving you alone even in lily-White areas.

    • There are almost always exceptions. The one black guy I met target shooting at the rifle range (now closed) up Rampart Range Road liked black powder flintlocks. Curious, that. I suspect blacks who appreciate the outdoors are already a bit unusual and therefore rare, so they’re probably not likely to be regarded as a problem.

  • BonusGift

    Bingo; the point is to preserve nature not destroy it. If you want to destroy nature import and birth more third worlders while genociding the people who actually invented parks and largely maintain and pay for them. This is just another form of accepting and encouraging white genocide. The whole fantasy of third worlders living in peace and harmony with nature thing has no bearing to actual history or current reality. Bottom line: if you have to pay people to ‘enjoy’ something then you have already lost the battle; and you just further the misallocation of resources that will violently reverse when the money runs out yet the parasites are still there.

    • Sick of it

      Hispanic slash and burn agriculture doesn’t seem to fit with the notion of National Parks or environmentalism generally.

    . At least in an all white environment that’s all you would need fear.

  • prunepit

    The “National Park” – a protected, natural environment belonging to the public – is a white man’s concept – it simply doesn’t compute for the vast majority of the world’s people.

  • OhWow

    Minorities never did any research as to different species of animals, plants, etc. As black comedian Katt Williams joked, “Black people ain’t discovered sh*t! Is that an elephant or a gorilla? I don’t know but let’s get out of here!”. Whites care about nature and scientific inquiries. Blacks and hispanics simply don’t. Unless they have an animal twerking exhibit, it’s hard to believe any minorities will want in.

    • IstvanIN

      I have always found it interesting just how disinterested blacks are in the natural world science and discovery. Their music (the modern stuff not the old stuff written by whites and jews) all sounds the same. Thump, thump, thump. No creativity whatsoever.

  • Baronsteamtrunk

    Stuff like this literally brings my blood to a boil! If “minorities” dont like National Parks or nature in general, thats on them! Idiots like the Government stooges at the parks department and department of Interior along with liberal reporters pre-suppose that there must be racial intolerance out there somewhere which is causing blacks and Hispanics to avoid places of natural splendor. Future rangers will no doubt soon now be obese women named Shanequa and Marisol who could care less about the wonders of Yellowstone or Yosemite, and who’s pearls of wisdom will be ‘Oh snap, it be cold here in winter’. Just more lazy, brain dead government workers putting in their time until retirement.

    Frankly, one of the reasons I love going to national parks is for the fact that there IS a TOTAL ABSENCE of people of color. Tahnkfully, besides moronic PC hires this will go nowhere. Blacks and Hispanics hate the great outdoors. I live in a beautiful outdoor playground. It abounds with whites all year long who come to fish, hike, hunt, swim, kayak and ski in winter. A mere 20 minute drive from me is a midsize black ghetto and you never, ever see a black face up here. No interest! Unless it has a beach, club and tons of modern amenities they could care less. And if they do come, they immediatley turn into the queen of Sheba, with constant complaining about insects, loss of cell service or other such nonsense.

    • ms_anthro

      No, you don’t get it. Nothing non-Whites do is ever their responsibility. Literally everything wrong with non-White people and cultures is the White man’s fault. This is because Whites are so vastly superior that any deviation from traditional White norms can’t be allowed. All non-Whites must be elevated to White standards, at White expense, because to allow them to be themselves is cruel to the poor, savage, inferior darlings. The White anti-White leftist will stop at nothing to force every other living hominid on the planet to be just like him–to like the same things he likes, behave the same way, enjoy the same foods and music, and aspire to the same goals and dreams.

      Anti-White Whites really believe this, they just don’t realize it. Their version of the White Man’s Burden is just as narcissistic and vain as the old one, but without the compassion or realistic understanding of the limitations that genes impose on each distinct subspecies of humans. We realists don’t want to change the other races and realize it can’t be done. Most of us don’t want to kill them off; we just want to separate from them and be left alone to prosper in our own societies. Ironically, we’re probably the most tolerant Whites in existence.

      The next time some anti-White White moron begins pompously lecturing you about White Privilege [sic] and how Whites don’t do enough to help the other races, ask them why they’re so sure the other races want or need to be helped? Watch their brains fry as the cognitive dissonance becomes too much to handle. Then wait for them to scream, “Raaaaaaciiiiiiist!” at you. Smile and say, of course I am. So are you. But I’m not ashamed or scared to face the truth. Shield your eyes from the inevitable head explosion that follows.

  • the corporate media’s obsession with putting nonwhites on a pedestal is becoming more and more obvious to many white americans.

    How will this all play out?

    Something has to change. The Democratic hate for whites is driving whites away from liberalism and toward the GOP.

    The GOP doesn’t even need to do anything but pretend to be for whites. The whites come flocking to it after being driven away from the Dems by liberal hatred of whites and worship of nonwhites.

    So the GOP politiicians can pretend to be against mass immigration and against affirmative action when running for office, and then do the exact opposite when elected.

    The Dem hatred of whites allows the GOP to do this.

    I refuse to play that game. I vote Dem and then I tirelessly fight against the fakeleftist aspect of liberalism, the liberal hate of whites and idolization of nonwhites.

    The fakeleftist hatred of whites/worship of nonwhites is the flip side of the GOP love of the rich.
    The GOP policies are pro-rich–the gop lowers taxes on the rich and lessens worker rights. They can do that because the Dems push white voters towards them.

    Hatred of whites and love of nonwhites is another pro-rich policy.

    Elevating nonwhites in social status and fighting for them to get equal access etc also helps the rich because 1) it lowers wages by increasing the supply of labor and it thereby increases corporate profits and 2) it divides the populace. A divided Labor cannot stand against Capital.

    Always follow the money.

    Since the cultural Marxists want all avenues of this country to look the same, when will they demand that municipal and regional ballet and opera companies reach out to blacks and latinos? Plus, not only do we need to see a lot more black and brown faces among opera and ballet goers, we need to see more of them on stage and even in the orchestra pit.
    In fact, why not an entire corps de ballet composed of large black women? Rachel Jeantel and Nell Carter look-alikes? Disney did it in Fantasia with the dancing hippos. Why shouldn’t we do it in real life.
    Chess clubs are also too white and too Asian. They’re obviously racist. We need to see some more brown and black faces, kids, in those chess clubs, or we’re going to have to send Uncle Al Sharpton and his minions goose-stepping through and all across your Queens, pawns and rooks.

      I would say no. To the Leftist, if a white culture and white race doesn’t exist to leech off of, tear down, hate, and destroy then they’ll seek it out. The Litvaks who used mass illegal black immigration to destroy South Africa fled to the Americas once they were done plundering. In a few generations after their arrival they destroyed over 250 years of civilization that was built of barren earth. Their ideology is that of the modern Leftist. After America is destroyed they’ll try to go back to Russia and start all over again…

  • If you look at the comment tally for the stories posted on Friday, this thread has dominated the weekend. I’m interested in your theories on why that is. Don’t be scared to think outside the box, there are no wrong answers as far as I can tell.

    • MBlanc46

      Tough question. Here’s a first attempt at an answer. Whites (e.g. the Romantic movement) and Asians (e.g. Chinese and Japanese painting) have developed quasi-religious attitudes and feelings toward nature. The thought of blacks and browns, who do not seem to share those feelings and attitudes, invading and colonizing nature is even more disturbing than their invasion and colonization of our urban spaces.

      • It also means there is one less venue for us to escape from their noise, litter and crime.

        Even inside our homes we aren’t immune; anyone who watches negrovision is subjected to relentless advertisements featuring WF/BM pairings, or the stupid white man who doesn’t know a damned thing. These ads are clearly designed to make white women hate their husbands.

        Enjoying nature isn’t merely a diversion from the stress of work, anxiety over bills and the constant demand that we purchase more crap we don’t need; it also represents an escape from THEM.

        • MBlanc46

          It certainly is that. What I was trying to get at, and I think the Mod was suggesting, is that it is more than that. We experience nature as something outside of us and something greater than us. We go there to renew our psyches (or spirits, if you’re more religious than I am). For blacks, it’s no more than the setting setting for their antics. We see that as a profanation.

          • The mod isn’t suggesting or hinting around or leading anyone to any answer. It’s an open ended and sincere question, to which I want to hear all your answers.

          • MBlanc46

            By “suggesting” I meant suggesting that the great interest in this thread indicates a deeper significance to this issue than to many of the other issues that are addressed here. It wasn’t my intention to claim that any particular explanation was favored.

        • Evette Coutier

          Negrovision…rotflmao. all MSM television should be renamed negrovision.

    • IstvanIN

      For one thing the entire article is insulting: the presence of whites is a barrier? Large portions of this country especially cities, are no go zones for whites, but for parks we are the barrier? Absurd.

      Plus, it is the destruction of another escape for whites.

    • Cannot Tell

      Liberals want every aspect of Americans’ lives to include racial and ethnic diversity. People that eat at restaurants must dine with diverse groups of friends. Residential neighborhoods must be diversified. And now visitors to national parks must be members of all the different races and ethnicities.

      I think this story has attracted so many comments because it’s just plain scary how liberals are trying to dominate every aspect of Americans’ lives. At the rate they’re going any activity or field that has “too many whites” may soon be outlawed. Are we approaching a day when large gatherings of whites are made illegal?

      Also, observing the differences in the interests of whites and non-whites is always interesting. Many liberals believe that all people who are for progressive causes such as, environmentalism, should unite against the white man. But that is pure stupidity. Non-whites, particularly blacks, do not care about the environment.

    • Evette Coutier

      Parks are one of our last refuge from blacks and all the burdens they bring with their presence. It’s nice to have a place to escape from they daily grind of modern life, and we don’t want that ruined. Also, we are all sick of everything in America somehow always being a race issue. Everywhere you go minorities whine about something. Whining about the parks is so stupid it is annoying. No one stops minorities from going there. They don’t go by choice. And now their choices are the fault of whites. We are all a little tired of them ruining everything they touch, and we’ve had enough of their incessant political baby games.

    • Erasmus

      This assumption that it’s because of racism that blacks and latinos don’t like to hike and camp or spend time in un-touched nature altogether underscores the absurdities of cultural Marxism and the ludicrous efforts by the cultural Marxists to correct what they see is a problem.

      This most of us see. We’ve seen how blacks and minorities react around nature (not good), and we know that if they don’t like nature and see it only as a backdrop to their antics, why not leave it to the rest of us unspoiled?

      The absurdity of the cultural Marxist position offers us an open-invitation for ridicule and parody, (it’s a comedy-writer’s gold mine), and in 100 years the cultural Marxist philosophy that all humanity is a blank slate upon which anything and everything can be written will take it’s place beside phrenology, “Celebrate Diversity!”, the belief in the spontaneous generation of life and the geocentric view of the solar system on the ash heap of patently absurd ideas.

  • Greg Thomas

    Yes, and look at the garbage, filth and destruction they leave behind. Squat monsters destroy everything they meet.

  • Mike Conrad

    Not to mention ten million such assaults where there were no witnesses to recount the ‘racist’ language being used in advance. As if the utterance were the real crime–well, that’s the only reason we even know of this story.

  • Mike Conrad

    Hardly anyone knows it anymore, but a couple generations ago, kids could walk the streets at night–even in our large cities–without becoming crime victims. We’re not even allowed to talk about it anymore.

  • Freedom Hayak

    I can’t wait until the garbage and the rapes start piling up – then what excuses will the New York Times and its enablers make?

    • ThomasER916

      They always follow the same pattern laid out by the Cultural Marxists.
      #1 – Blame whites
      #2 – Translate all non-white problems into “cultural” or “generic” problems
      #3 – Suggest that “inclusion” and “diversity” are the only solutions

  • Mike Conrad

    Timber rattlers be racist

    • They’re like bears; they move off if they know you’re coming. My mother and I were rattled at by a snake we never saw, south of Boulder in 2004. It was just doing its snake thing, and we turned around and walked back the way we came. Unless one is in the ocean, wildlife normally isn’t very threatening, and even the risks from sharks and other sea life can be minimized.

        Don’t you worry–the only animals I have ever disliked called themselves ‘human’…

    ‘ My dad required that we left the campsite cleaner than we found it.’

    yep… I’ve tried without success to teach this notion to the young people of today

    Be nice if some “teens” met up with those boys in “Deliverance”. They’d learn to squeal like a pig.

    Read above! Apparently one of the stowaways on one of Columbus’s ships had dark skin! Expect the Spielberg film next year.

  • The handful of subcontinental Indians I worked with didn’t seem too interested. When in 1996 a bunch of us went to the International Society for Integrated Ferroelectrics conference in Tempe, AZ, they looked at me like I was crazy for driving there from Colorado Springs and camping along the way. I had a great time, stopped at Metrorite Crater near Flagstaff, and stayed with my sister while I was in Tempe – she was studying hospital ultrasound at ASU at the time. The company gave me the same amount of money they gave everyone else for hotel accommodations, but I spent it taking my sister out to eat.

    I wasn’t worried about wildlife or people on the way; I took a .45″ in the Saturn’s glove compartment and an AK-47 in the trunk.

  • National parks have plenty of animals without blacks visiting.

  • Better black bears than black apes.

  • Evette Coutier

    Rename Yosemite National park to Rapeland National park.

  • mark eaves

    Good, to the national parks we go…….Anything to escape inner city mentality; arrogant, stupid, animal-like.

  • Ella

    If you ever priced a National Park Lodge such as Old Faithful Inn, they usually run around $200 plus per night. You see mostly seniors or Asians who book these rooms-with-views for vacations. I joke about the US govt. will eventually pay for all-inclusive trips, so minorities can get “part of the pie” without the hard work and long-term saving.

  • Ella

    Gettysburg is very educational beyond any book or documentary film. Did you enjoy the peaceful Amish communities nearby? We travel to these historic and off-the-beaten-path places to find peace, exactly the opposite of any US immigrant city.

  • billrowland

    Bullcrap race baiting

  • itdoesnotmatter

    Look closely at the Agenda 21 map of the USA and the NWO plans for land use. Apparently the plan is no access other than “authorized only,” to wilderness areas that are now our national parks.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    “I think they have this perception that the backcountry is full of toothless old Rebs running around with a shotguns and lynching ropes, a la “Deliverance” or something.”

    Let’s not discourage such illusions…wink…

  • One needn’t even drive all the way to the major parks for a nice time. While taking highway 83 north once in 2007 because I-25 was a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam, I accidentally “discovered” Castlewood Canyon State Park. I’d lived in Colorado for almost all of the preceeding 35 years, but had never heard of the place. It’s close and very pretty, so we’ve been there several times. I’m sure there are nice little places like this scattered all over the nation.

    I spend a fair amount of time in national parks hiking. I see some Hispanics but no blacks. on the whole I see noone else.

  • MarcB1969

    I posted the same opinion on a rock climbing forum years ago and received much scorn from other posters. Sub-Saharan Africa is not known for producing explorers, so why should we assume these types of activities would even appeal to them.

  • ThomasER916

    You obviously didn’t watch the video, take in any information, and you’re simply posting baseless comments. I have a feeling you do this a LOT.

    Servals are also pets. Yet another point you missed as you type in circles.
