Cesar Chavez National Historic Park Is in the Works

Julie Cart, Los Angeles Times, October 24, 2013

The mission of America’s 400 national parks is to reflect the country’s history–no matter how uncomfortable or unflattering–which is why some contain depictions of slavery, the fight for women’s suffrage, Japanese internment and the struggle for civil rights.

The National Park Service on Thursday announced plans to establish the Cesar Chavez National Historic Park, to recognize the achievements of the activist and the farm labor movement he led.

Chavez, who advocated for fair wages and humane conditions for field workers in California and elsewhere, also will be honored as an environmentalist and nonviolent human rights advocate.

“He is such an iconic figure for the Latino community, and has been for decades,” said Hilda Solis, the former U.S. Labor secretary and California congresswoman. Solis co-sponsored legislation that in 2008 directed the park service to study the feasibility of a park honoring Chavez.

Appearing at a Latino Legacy Forum on Thursday at Ruben Salazar Park in East Los Angeles, Solis said the national park system ought to be more inclusive.

“We need to tell [Chavez’s] story and preserve his legacy for all Americans,” she said. “It’s exciting. It gives me goose bumps.”

The proposed park honoring Chavez, who died in 1993, would include four existing sites in California: the Forty Acres National Historic Landmark and the Filipino Community Hall in Delano, just north of Bakersfield; the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument at Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz in Keene, which served as the United Farm Workers headquarters and now is Chavez’s burial site; and the route of the 1966 Delano-to-Sacramento march.

The move to honor the Latino labor leader is part of a park service initiative to develop more historic sites that examine the lives and contributions of minorities. One of the park service’s newest historic sites is Manzanar in the Eastern Sierra, which served as one of 10 Japanese internment camps during World War II.

A lack of diversity makes parks irrelevant to many Americans and is one reason visitation levels at national parks have been flat for the last decade, National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said.

“We believe that we are America’s storytellers and the keepers of our shared memories,” Jarvis said during Thursday’s event. “We need to tell the entire story.”

Starting in 2009, a group of historians from the park service and Cal State Fullerton evaluated approximately 100 sites related to Chavez and the farm labor movement to determine which should be included in a park unit. {snip}

Belinda Faustinos, who co-chaired the panel, said it was crucial that all Americans see themselves reflected in the nation’s historic parks.

“People shy away from parks where they don’t see their cultural history or anything about themselves,” she said. “We Latinos might stick our heads into Yosemite or Santa Monica Mountains, but there is not much to relate to. . . . That’s why this is so important.”

    Why are La Razas like Solis such racists?

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      I don’t care that they are. It’s just that whites ought to match them and other racial/ethnic groups in terms of pride, separation, community adherence and in RIGHTS.

      • Greg Thomas

        I agree!

      • Mergatroyd

        We have a lot more to be proud of than they do. The barrel has to be scraped to the bottom to find great achievements of mestizos or blacks, or history has to be rewritten, which is exactly what is happening.

        • saxonsun

          You must go further than that.

  • Greg Thomas

    Just what we need, encourage more mexicans to take up “farming” in our national forests.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      Latinos like parks to be in city limits and have amenities like a soccer field, bushes (for “sudden lovemaking”) and parking lots with taco trucks and open tow zones for when their low riders batteries run out. I wouldn’t worry about those particular Latinos wanting to take up “farming” in the national forests. The ones that want to do that are already there and doing it without much interference.

      I wouldn’t care if they changed the name of Griffith Park in L.A. to reflect the demographic reality. It would tip off visiting whites to stay away.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Ever seen those parks after the Lations leave?

        They keep to the lower levels in Griffith Park and do not hesitate to spray graffiti all over the place. That’s why I climb as high as possible, to get away from them — the higher you climb, the more quiet, peaceful, pristine and White it becomes.

        • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

          They really are urban animals. Griffith Park used to be such a nice spot until that guy left the cake out in the rain. Everything went bad after that!

          • Katherine McChesney

            That’s MacArthur Park.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            My impression is that there were many cake festivals in the rain in L.A. and S.F. in those times.

          • Lagerstrom

            If you actually know what ‘MacArthur Park’ is about, I’d like you to tell us please Katherine!

          • Katherine McChesney

            I actually knew the writer, Jimmy Webb, through a friend. The story is that someone bet that he couldn’t write a nonsensical song and have it recorded. He came up with “MacArthur Park” and Richard Harris recorded it. It charted on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the rock category.

            So, yes, I do know something about it as I worked in the L.A. music business in the 70’s and early 80’s.

          • Anglokraut

            I keep seeing Dumbledore singing this at the opening feast at Hogwarts.
            I have a pretty active imagination now that I’ve cut my TV watching down to three hours a week, if that.

          • Lagerstrom

            Thanks Katherine.
            I was never sure whether it was meant to be total nonsense or some sort of bizarre philosophical meandering about the human condition or something. Although the ‘stripy pair of pants’ bit was a big hint for the former and not the latter.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Leo Carillo State Park is in Malibu, Ca. He was “Pancho” in the “Cisco Kid” series.

      • bilderbuster

        They’ll need a nice shady tree by the curb to sell their dope from too.

    • sbuffalonative

      I’m split on this one.
      On one hand, I find it obnoxious that these people want their own park.
      On the other, if it keeps them in their park and out of mine, that’s a plus.

      • JDInSanD

        I find it obnoxious that these people want my country but not theirs.

        • bilderbuster

          They’re not giving up their country they’re keeping it & taking ours too.

          • Anglokraut

            “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine too, gringo.”

            That’s the motto of La Raza translated from Spanish to what they actually mean in English.

          • Marc Zuckurburg

            That’s my motto, too, just I use slightly different words:

            “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is about to be mine.”

            Sometimes, I will end it with a certain ethnic slur. Just not “gringo.” It does start with a “G” though.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    The move to honor the Latino labor leader is part of a park service initiative to develop more historic sites that examine the lives and contributions of minorities and incites hatred of Whites who fund said parks with their tax dollars. One of the park service’s newest historic sites is Manzanar in the Eastern Sierra, which served as one of 10 Japanese internment camps during World War II, which is an actually truly regrettable incident for which the survivors have been duly compensated but so what, serves as yet another bundle of sticks stoking the flames of White genocide.

    A lack of diversity makes parks a nice place for Whites to go have fun, but is irrelevant to many Americans of color who prefer gang banging and pursuing the Justice Department approved hobby of White genocide and is one reason visitation levels at national parks have been flat for the last decade, National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      You just don’t know your history. The camp at Manzanar and other places like it were necessary at the time for at least two good reasons; 1. Spies had helped arrange for the attack on Pearl Harbor and it is known that Japanese agents were in the Japanese communities (there was even propaganda published) and 2. They had to be protected from the American population, who were outraged at the Japanese in general.

      (Before you go off, there were also internment camps for Germans in the East, but you never hear of them because they were white).

      Extra credit; Our present problem is that we could never hope to protect ourselves domestically should another war like that occur. In the current situation, we’ve seen more than once how having certain non-European communities guarantees that we will always have domestic terrorism to look forward to and which will likely increase.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Yeah sure. I think it was regrettable, not some histrionic “tragedy”. The Japanese Americans sure fought like lions in Italy.

        I understand the mentality of the time, but nothing wrong with an apology when merited, especially considering the war record of the 442nd Infantry regiment.

        My pops was amazed by those guys…

        “Most fellas who got wounded enjoyed their stay out of the line of fire, being waited on by pretty nurses and catching up on their sleep. But not those guys. I saw one begging to be allowed to go back to the front. Tried to tear his IV out, had to be restrained. Guess he had something to prove.”

        Point is most Japanese folk got over it long ago, but the hate whitey corps dredges up anything they can to justify our genocide, so…why not this?

        • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

          I don’t thin any apology was necessary. If you want to be a minority in another country with strong national identification, then you subject yourself to this (as in then).

          The most decorated service member in the U.S. forces was Audie Murphy, a white man of Irish heritage. There were many cases of whites that were super-macho fighters as well. In fact, many Japanese are on record as admiring the American flyers because of their “pioneer style courage.” One of my best friends in high school was a Marine in the Pacific Island hopping campaign. He was an incredibly courageous man, from all I gathered. He also hated Japanese for the cruelty they showed to everyone, captives, civilians, prisoners of war, etc. A deal was made with the Japanese to not hold war crimes trials in exchange for a quick end to the war. Some analysts say that the real reason was that Americans were more concerned with what happened to whites in Europe than Asians in Asia. The lack of war crimes trials is one MAJOR reason why the Japanese have been able to “get over it,” while Germans and German/whites have been hounded to the point that many young Germans resort to neo-nazism as a defense.

          I think it’s obvious that the 442nd were obviously a bunch of Japanese, out to prove that they could outdo the whites, and I also notice that they fought against whites. Why weren’t they fighting Japanese forces? That might have proved something about their racism and nationalism. German Americans were fighting Germans.

          You’ve drunk the Kool-Aid, in this case.

          • borogirl54

            That is a good question why they were not allowed to fight in the Pacific Theatre. The only ones that came close were those who were interpreters. The 442nd was the most decorated unit in the war. The reason why they fought like they did was because they wanted to show that they were Americans too and when Japanese go to war, they know that they will not come back.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            Correction, the advertised reason they fought so hard was to show up the white Americans, not show that they loved them and love being American. That is the PBS, Ken Burns version that has become the default position.

            Again, I don’t think sending Japanese to Europe to kill whites is any proof of anything. The most decorated individual was white (Audie Murphy). How do you think the Japanese would have done if their unit was filled with other Asian-Americans like Chinese, Filipinos, Koreans, etc. If there was an all Irish unit, they might well have been the best decorated in both theaters, for example, or an all Jewish unit in France, etc. See how the propaganda is so well entrenched that actual equal comparisons don’t come to mind, as they should?

          • borogirl54

            Not true. I had relatives in the 442nd and they went because of their loyalty to America, not to show up white America. The 442nd and the 100th Battalion were designated as all Japanese American units. Who knows how they would have done if other Asian Americans were included? These units were not allowed to serve in the Pacific Theatre so who knows how they would have done there?

          • Mergatroyd

            EXACTLY…and great posts.

            They were such a tiny portion of the fighting forces but the WW II anti-White narrative that is PC-approves demands that we “honor” and “kow-tow” to Asian, blacks and now Hispanic contributions to WW II (Ken Burns was pressured into including mestizos in his version of events) at the expense of brave White Americans who gave their lives to “save their country.”

            That is what I object to and what is being shoved in our faces to show how evil, hateful and bigoted Whitey is, nothing more.

          • Caledwych

            The PC corps are the same people who decried Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” because there were no “people of color” portrayed in the infamous D-Day battle scenes.I suppose it was an inconvient fact that there WERE no “people of color” at D-Day.I have little use for a Marxist like Spielberg,but I applaud him for sticking to his guns and making his movie as realistic as possible.
            Nevertheless,the lefties are now trying to tell us that the only American who put up a fight at Pearl Harbor was a black cook and the Tuskegee Airmen singlehandedly won WW2 in Europe.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            It was because of their race. Not saying such was a bad idea, but by this point, when White was the undisputed standard in the country, people of German and Italian descent had been blending into the gene pool for some time.

            The savagery in the Pacific was a race war.

            Regardless, as Japan became a valuable ally of the US during the cold war, some gesture to the Japanese American community just seems to have been sensible and friendly.

            The Japanese in the US are sociologically “White” regardless and should things go to Hell in a hand basket they would be stupid to side against genetically White folk.

            Do Japanese Americans really pine to be ruled by blacks and Hispanics? Once gentile Whites are utterly degraded are they going to be able to foot the welfare bills along with the Chinese and Jews? HA HA!

            Whatever group does well vis-à-vis the blacks and Hispanics will be eaten, because they will be at fault.

          • paul marchand

            Right. In an existential war, for survival, to castigate the US as some horrible country for the ARGUABLE act of keeping Japanese-Americans in camps is wrong.

          • borogirl54

            Not all Japanese Americans were in camps. My family was not interned in Hawaii. In fact, they prospered during the war due to a large population of service personnel.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            That’s fascinating. I wonder how “they” decided who went and who did not.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            How does this statement,

            “The most decorated service member in the U.S. forces was Audie Murphy, a white man of Irish heritage. There were many cases of whites that were super-macho fighters as well.”

            Abnegate this one?

            “The Japanese Americans sure fought like lions in Italy.”

            That’s called “affirming a disjunct”, which is a common form of formal logical fallacy.

            “I think it’s obvious that the 442nd were obviously a bunch of Japanese, out to prove that they could outdo the whites, and I also notice that they fought against whites.”

            That’s not even a fallacy. It’s simply inarguable. Oh wait, it is a fallacy after all – mind projection, confusing the way one views the world with the way the world is.

            “Why weren’t they fighting Japanese forces? That might have proved something about their racism and nationalism.”

            They were not allowed to. Orders. Non Sequitur and at least couple of others as well.

            “You’ve drunk the Kool-Aid, in this case.”
            And we finish it all off with your specialty, a rousing ad hominum garnished with a sprinkling of thought terminating cliché.
            Bravo!
            At least we hadn’t integrated the orcs into our units back then, eh?

          • Mergatroyd

            The problem is we are forced to honor the Japanese fighters AT THE EXPENSE of our own Brave White Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen.

            Why does THEIR history trump ours? — Don’t tell me it doesn’t, I see what my kids bring home from their high school history classes, it’s all lessons about Manzanar and the 442nd, and the Tuskegee Airmen, as if they single-handedly won WW II.

            It’s a one-sided, biased history with Whites completely ignored.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I don’t support the building of any monument to any aggrieved minority at taxpayer expense.

          • The 442nd was sent to Italy in order to avoid cases of “friendly” fire due to mistaken identity.

            As for your alleged “lack of war crimes trials” in the Far East, you are forgetting the Tokyo trials, as well as trials in Manila and various places in China.

        • Mergatroyd

          No, they haven’t. They demanded and received reparations in California for their internment and demanded monuments be built to those who suffered and had their property confiscated. They’ve joined the anti-white band wagon with demands that their “suffering” at the hands of old evil Whitey be honors, codified and shoved down our throats.

          Make sure to tell ’em ROOSEVELT signed the order, a DEMOCRAT.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            No, they haven’t.
            ———–
            Are there any polls on this? Honestly I could care less, but wonder if it has ever been done.

            The level of “get whitey” sentiment in the country likely encourages some of any non or arguably non-White group to jump into the feeding frenzy, but how much?

            We can disagree, fine, but this is not something I consider worth the discussion any more, honestly, nor do I care to get cornered into being painted as the “Jap John Brown” because I’m just not, lol…

      • IstvanIN

        There were also Italians interred.

        • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

          Do you imagine that I don’t know that? Italian Americans fought in Italy, too, and etc.

      • Greg Thomas

        Yes, heaven forbid we ever go to war with mexico again. Millions of their invaders are aquatting on our soil, still loyal to their beloved mexico. In my opinion, this creates a national security issue.

        • Bossman

          Why would we ever go to war with Mexico again? Would it be to annex what is left of their country?

          • Greg Thomas

            No, to save what’s left of ours!

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            The Second Mexican War only begins after we finish getting rid of all those traitors in the American government.

          • Who Me?

            Would a second war with Mexico end like the first one? You know the one. The one where we won the war, and were actually entitled to take all the land down to the norther edges of Mexico city, which we didn’t do. Instead, we PAID them for the barren desert lands that made up our southwest states, and proceeded to make them into what they are now–or were until the Mexicans started infiltrating again.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Would it be to annex what is left of their country?
            ———————
            That would be foolish indeed.

          • DudeWheresMyCountry?

            We wouldn’t be going to war, only responding to the war Mexico has already started. We would respond to their invasion and war by expelling all illegals, anchors, squatters, dependent foreigners and any others with criminal records, nationalist instigators and dual citizens.

        • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

          Of course, this is the number one issue underlying all this white anguish; there is no feeling of security at any location or in any thing in what used to be a safe, happy nation. We’ve sold out and the campaign to defame, contain and eliminate whites has been underway for a while. The worst and saddest part of it is that it was and is the Feminist Movement, led primarily by white women that really got it going and keeps it rolling. But it is running on its own momentum now.

          • Bossman

            The Feminist movement used the Civil Rights movement to promote their own agenda so did the Gay Rights movement.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            True. If you had been posting here for some time you might have read my extensive, documented, referenced posts on the history of feminism. But they did an even better job than the Civil Rights Movement in utilizing Frankfurt School strategies like Critical Theory than even the CRM did.

          • Greg Thomas

            And so have illegal invading mexicans. They have framed their trespassing and invasion as a “civil rights issue.”

          • Bossman

            Yes, American Democracy is an experiment and a work in progress. I hope it eventually works out to everybody’s satisfaction.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Neither “democracy” nor any other shibboleth can ever work out to everybody’s satisfaction. That’s the problem. Can’t make everybody happy and attempts to do so are doomed.

          • Garrett Brown

            Democracy with diversity is a failure.

          • Mergatroyd

            There are three forms of government: liberty, anarchy and totalitarianism.

            Which do you prefer? Uh, I’ll take LIBERTY.

            Is it worth fighting for? Ask the 60 million that died at hands of the Soviets (totalitarianism) or those in countries embroiled in endless civil wars where chaos and anarchy reign daily.

          • Bossman

            I’ll take Liberty any day. It is either that or nothing.

          • Greg Thomas

            Yes, illegal invaders not included!

          • paul marchand

            Exactly why it’s time for the real men to take over the joint a.s.a.p.

        • paul marchand

        • Pro_Whitey

          But, on the other hand, it might be a helpful opportunity to clear out the internal traitors and the illegals. Difficult to justify putting matters to the hazards of war. I still hold out hope for the political process. BO has been helpful, I think, in opening whites’ eyes.

      • Nathanwartooth

        “there were also internment camps for Germans in the East, but you never hear of them because they were white”

    • paul marchand

      When will there be a park commemorating about 700,000 US citizens murdered by blacks ? I mean, “no matter how uncomfortable”.
      (b.t.w.: the number of slaves imported into the US from the 1600s to 1860 was about 597,000…….avg slave duration about 50 years……better to prosper as a slave than to be dead)

        After the reckoning.

      • Mergatroyd

        How about a national monument dedicated to White Americans killed by drunk driving Mestizos?

  • Anglokraut

    There was a “gang-related” shooting at a Cesar Chavez High School in Phoenix last week. I wonder if the mestizos are working to make anything named for Chavez a no-go area for Whites, much like MLK blvds across the country.

  • MarcB1969

    Someone better tell the hordes of brown-Hispanics who descend upon Joshua Tree National every weekend that they don’t “relate” to it. BTW, Cesar Chavez was against illegal immigration for most of his life, and he and his men would patrol and apprehend illegal invaders sneaking across the US border during the night.

    • dukem1

      Chavez was born in Arizona. Why not have a Barry Goldwater park for people?
      Goodness, we are a nation of morons.

      • Anglokraut

        The main airport in Phoenix is named for Barry Goldwater; however, it is filled with mestizo and Amerind art.

  • Who Me?

    Nice. Just be sure to name it accurately so Whites know better than to go there. Oh, and maybe it would be a good idea to have a little lettuce patch in the center so some of the anchor babies can discover what it looks like before it gets shredded up for their tacos.

  • MekongDelta69

    Count me in as “down for the struggle.”

    I mean, who can expect brown people to possibly ‘relate’ to those ‘evil racist white’ trees?

    Me? I ‘relate’ to those old-fashioned green trees.
    But then again, I’m so “five minutes ago.”

      I would suggest Cesar Chavez national park be placed in Mexico.

  • borogirl54

    I can just see it now. Cesar Chavez’s birthday becomes a national holiday. That is what this is leading to.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      It’s already a STATE holiday in California.

      I think it replaced Easter — at least for GOOGLE it has.

      • JDInSanD

        It replaced Columbus Day.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    WHO? I thought the article was about naming parks after HUGO Chavez, LOL.

    Time to get my eyes checked…

    (but then what’s the difference? Both are COMMIE heroes).

    “SEE-ZER” (as the president calls him) is one more non-White faux hero used by the left to push for whatever immigration cause-du-jour there is, to pander to Hispanic voters and shove in Whites’ faces.

    But is Chavez a “hero” worthy of his name on national and city parks, city boulevards, a new holiday and a USS Naval ship ?

    Shouldn’t that have something to do with accomplishment? By all accounts, Chavez’s activism for “his people” and the UFW was a failure. Are farmworkers lives better today because of Cesar Chavez’s activism??

    There are virtually no field or orchard workers working under a union contract (less than 2%). the UFW actually doesn’t legitimately represent farm workers anymore, and in fact hasn’t for a long time.

    Of the union’s claims to have ‘won basic, humane treatment for the campesinos,’ the LA Weekly’s Marc Cooper, said, ‘nothing could be further from the truth.’ According to Cooper, wages of California’s farm workers have been at best stagnant and, by most reckonings, are in decline. With almost all workers stuck at the minimum wage of $6.75 an hour, it’s rare to find a farm worker whose annual income breaks $10,000 a year.

    Cesar Chavez’s legacy:

    “Worried that the hiring of illegal immigrants drove down wages, Chávez instructed union members to call the Immigration and Naturalization Service to report the presence of illegal immigrants in the fields and demand that the agency deport them. UFW officials were even known to picket INS offices.”

    The Village Voice said that the UFW conducted a ‘campaign of random terror against anyone hapless enough to fall into its net.’ …in 1973, in one of the most disgraceful chapters in UFW history, the union set up a “wet line” to prevent Mexican immigrants from entering the United States….they physically attacked the immigrants and left some bloody in the process.”

    Chavez WAS against illegal immigration, until he wasn’t: “during the 1980s, while Chavez was still working alongside Huerta, he was key in getting the amnesty provisions into the 1986 federal immigration act.”

      In other words, in the end, like so many men before him, he ultimately sold out his people, Mexican-Amercans.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    There is not much to relate to when you are in a foreign land. Not much to relate to when your ancestors had nothing to do with this country.

  • NM156

    I like Chavez too and support the effort to memorialize and honor him, for his efforts to eradicate illegal labor from the farms and fields of the Southwest.

  • Truthseeker

    This is why diversity doesn’t work. Every group has a different historical narrative that they relate to, and it prevents them from finding a shared identity with the rest of the country. I hope I live to see the days of a white homeland. It’ll be so nice to be in an environment where our people can celebrate our heritage without a hint of guilt.

  • Kit Ingoldby

    “We Latinos might stick our heads into Yosemite or Santa Monica Mountains, but there is not much to relate to.”

    Not much to relate to if you are an ignorant philistine who can’t appreciate the splendours of nature at its finest.

    If that is what she wants to accuse here fellow ‘Latinos’ of being then that in her choice.

    • ViktorNN

      The stupidity displayed in that quote by Faustinos is absolutely amazing.

    • Mergatroyd

      Good. Let mestizos believe that they can’t relate to California’s state parks. Why would anyone sane want to attract a bunch of destructive animals into a beautiful state or national park?

      Let it be one of the FEW areas where we can be free from them.

    That’s because you vermin have no history…

  • Dave4088

    Oh sure, once we create monuments to honor the insignificant and often embellished achievements of mestizos they’ll come a flocking to the national parks in droves. I’m really getting confused because we’re constantly told that race does not matter and/or is mutable, but that we must constantly rewrite our history so that non-whites can feel warm and gooey when they go to school and now visit national parks.

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the federal government has become openly hostile to traditional (white) America since Obongo has occupied the oval office.

  • Evette Coutier

    Turn a watermelon patch into a park and they can feel right at home.

  • Truth Teller

    I actually saw some Hispanic “sudden lovemaking” in the park with the city swimming pool in Culver City a suburb of Los Angeles. I went swimming that Sunday afternoon. Walking back to the car, I went past the dumpsters. They are enclosed, but there is a 6 foot gap in one of the walls. And there they were, one tub of lard on top of another grunting away.

  • So CAL Snowman

    ” “We Latinos might stick our heads into Yosemite or Santa Monica Mountains, but there is not much to relate to.”

    Tell them it’s free and there is food. You won’t be able to keep them away.

    • Dave4088

      Don’t forget beer and illicit drugs.

    • Mergatroyd

      NO. Don’t encourage them to visit Yosemite or the Santa Monica Mountains. The best part of the article was that they couldn’t relate to those places.

      They’d only come and strew litter everywhere and mark up the trees. Let ’em think it’s a hot bed of racist, hateful Whites.

  • bigone4u

    Only whites are interested in history and in nature, and the beauty of the outdoors. As the country browns up, parks like that will become increasingly irrelevant. The outcome will be a government push to add hip-hop concerts for blacks and bar-b-q pits for Mexicans to the parks. Plus, liquor sold on the premises. The parks will become infested with lowlifes, but it won’t matter then because white families will have enough sense to stay away.

  • IstvanIN

    Shows how ignorant Hispanics are. I had nothing to do with the Pyramids, the Parthenon, the Colosseum or the Great Wall, yet I find them interesting to read about and watch on TV, and if they weren’t so far away I would love to see them. Only a complete ignoramus, with no intellect what so ever, is only interested in their own, tiny slice of the world.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Come to Nashville. Centennial Park near Vanderbilt Univ. has the worlds only exact replica of the Parthenon. Of course, the heathens here arranged a 40 ft. statue of the goddess Athena and school children were manipulated into collecting money to have her gilded.

      • dukem1

        More bling!

        • Katherine McChesney

          Agreed.

  • mobilebay

    Yosemite or Santa Monica net relevant to Hispanics? Then I would suggest that perhaps the national parks or Mexico might be the place to visit…and stay.

    • WR_the_realist

      Hiking in a national park or national forest is a great way to get away from the diversity, although is some areas you may be in danger of stumbling into an illegal marijuana growing operation.

    When every minority wants to erase Southern heritage and the Confederate battle flag, why should I care that they want a piece of land to trash?

        Comrade LBJ

        • NoMosqueHere

          LBJ created the america we live in today. He was an extremely forceful president, and he pushed though the twin pillars of our current dysfunctional society: the anti discrimination laws and the 1965 immigration act. But for LBJ, we might not have any of it.

  • John R

    Hey, if I move to Mexico, and visit any of their historical sites, do you think that-in the name of diversity-they will have exhibits honoring Davy Crocket and Sam Houston? Maybe?

    • paul marchand

      There is something refreshing about a country being self-examining.
      But when this “self-examination” occurs 24/7/365, and is aimed at a ” certain group”, that is in great decline, the members of that “certain group” that assist the process should be committed to the nearest sanitorium and put on suicide watch.

  • MBlanc46

    We’re a minority. When are they going to have a Race Realist Nationalist Park?

    • Boris McGuffin

      We already have that: It’s in Los Angeles, and it’s called Griffith Park.

      Take a tour of Griffith any weekend day, and your race realism will be heightened.

      • MBlanc46

        I was sort of hoping we’d get a place that blacks, Hispanics, and Asians would avoid.

  • Neuday

    Does Mexico have a Winfield Scott National Park? Why not; are they racist?

    ———————————————————————————————————

    Winfield Scott was the general that marched all the way to Mexico City, conquering it and ending the Mexican-American War.

    • Randall Ward

      It was Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson that beat the Mexicans. We should have kept the place; many Mexicans wanted the US to do just that. Maybe it wouldn’t be a socialist state today. Maybe.

  • WR_the_realist

    I want a Jared Taylor National Park.

  • Pro_Whitey

    So, are they going to emphasize that Chavez opposed illegal immigration and favored immigration law enforcement so as to make it easier for the farm workers to maintain and increase their wages and working conditions?

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

      Nope! Why? Well because that is the REAL “uncomfortable” and “unflattering” part of this anti-White, anti-American push for the Ceasar Chavez park. Not to mention the fact that by their standards that would make Chavez a Racist Xenophobic Bigot who clearly hates hispanics simply because of the color of their skin.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    “People shy away from parks where they don’t see their cultural history or anything about themselves,”

    Translation: Hispanics are so stupid and shallow that they can’t be interested in the grandeur of nature unless the park is named after a hispanic. Doing so will magically make it “relate” to Hispanics.

    The mission of America’s 400 national parks is to reflect the country’s history–no matter how uncomfortable or unflattering

    Maybe the national parks should reflect the difference in IQ between races–no matter how uncomfortable or unflattering.

  • lily-white

    “more inclusive” and “lack of diversity”…. those words are all I need to hear… code for “anti-white”

  • Rusty Shackelford

    If they want to make Hispanics feel more at home in the park, just erect a facade of a Home Depot and a 7-11 with a bus stop out front.

  • LHathaway

    So if you’re Japanese American and placed in camps during WW2, this is something to note in history books and presidents 50 years later to apologize for. . .

    If you’re German or Italian American and place in camps during WW2, I guess this isn’t an injustice and is in fact it’s not part of the ‘uncomfortable past’ at all.

  • Anon

    Is the irony not lost on any that our national parks are now dangerous places where drug dealers grow drugs using slave labor

  • Garrett Brown

    I wonder if blacks will go to the park? Lol.

    • Juan Outtamany

      they never leave the parking lot & picnic area. Just like the squat monsters… with the exception of the soccer field

      • Mergatroyd

        But they leave “something” behind in the parking lot & picnic area, trash, tons and mounds of it everywhere, chicken bones, greasy napkins, empty containers of cole slaw, discarded cans and bottles of soda and Colt .45 and any trash they can empty out of their cars.

  • OhWow

    How about a country for white people who can’t “relate” to low IQ minorities who live in perpetual states of violence and poverty? Oh wait, that used to be America.

    • Juan Outtamany

      you’ll have to keep out the Christians. Our accepting and inclusive nature has seen our largess made into a weapon that is being used against us

  • ViktorNN

    Two thoughts about this article:

    1) I think it’s telling that Cesar Chavez is the only hispanic “hero” that we ever hear about. Cesar Chavez this Cesar Chavez that. Who gives a sh*t? That’s all they got? The hispanic pantheon seems to consist of one dude standing in a lettuce field.

    2) The one good thing about the name “Cesar Chavez National Historic Park” is that white people (and everyone else who doesn’t enjoy blaring mariachi music, graffiti spray painted on every possible surface, and soiled baby diapers lying around everywhere) know where NOT to go.

  • Does this mean they will have their own national park in which they can cultivate marijuana and have armed narcos shoot at their own unwitting hikers who stumble into these operations, instead of growing dope in our parks and shooting at us in them?

  • Mark Caplan

    American-born Cesar Chavez might have joined American Renaissance had he still been alive. As a labor organizer, he vehemently opposed illegal immigration. He referred to illegals as — get this — “illegals.” He even used the scathing ethnic slur “w–backs” for illegals who sneaked into America to work for coolie wages.

    • I read that a lot, but I have a hard time believing it.

      If he was such an immigration patriot, why is the woman who was his shadow for practically his whole adult life, Delores Huerta, who is still living, as big an advocate for no borders and open immigration as they come? Why are almost all the people who claim the Chavez mantle the same way?

      There was a protest at the US-Mexico border in 1969 against illegal immigration, the three big stars at the event were Chavez, Ralph Abernathy and Walter Mondale. If Abernathy was against illegal immigration, why are virtually all black pols and civil rights groups and race lobbies on board with it now? Mondale was Jimmy Carter’s Vice-President, and Carter was as never-enforce-immigration-law as any Democrat President.

      There’s something not quite right about this picture.

      • Mark Caplan

        A decade or so ago, The New York Times, labor unions and the political left in general opposed illegal and large-scale legal immigration, for obvious reasons. Immigration lowers the living standards of the working poor. Those obvious reasons haven’t changed, but the left now demands open borders. Even the black leadership celebrates flooding America with immigrants from the Third World. The reason is, I suppose, they seethe with so much hatred of whites, they’d rather punish whites by wrecking the country than lift up members of their own group.

  • Anglokraut

    Probably a lot better for everyone, as following mid-19th century policy, we’d have removed the Indians and the mestizos to South America, and flooded the area with the Irish who were fleeing the Potato Famine, and Germans fleeing the 1848 Revolution.

  • Boris McGuffin

    Where American left-wingers are concerned, everything is about politics.

  • keller23

    Because when I go to Yellowstone or Yosemite, the first thought I have is….can I relate to this place? It’s not, wow this place is amazingly beautiful. It’s did my ancestors have anything to do with it. America was a nice place for 200 years. It’s a dead country now.
