Talking Going to National Parks Is Racist, Declares ABC News

This headline was inspired by the following tweet made by ABC. I added the boldface to highlight how asinine this was.

Did you get all that? It’s racist to go to national parks, even though you’re not keeping anybody else from going there. It’s “self-segregation,” even though the parks are open to anyone who wants to go. And if you’re a white person, it’s your fault if people of color don’t want to go to the parks, especially if you’ve never done anything to hurt anybody. None of the black people interviewed by ABC News can point to any specific instance of racism, which is what’s so nefarious about white people. There’s nothing more racist than not being a racist.

This is a good example of the corrupt MSM promoting the globalist agenda to keep the races in this country divided. I see racism plastered all over the news, yet when I deal with people of color in my day-to-day life, we are all just people, acting like people irrespective of skin color, the way it should be, and the way it mostly is - except in the news.

Much of the MSM has a race dividing agenda and they don't even try to hide these days.
But, they always fail to point out the real and most prolific self segregation. Church. That's not a slam on religion. People that practice the exact same religion practice it in churches that are self segregated by both race and ethnicity. I'm not saying that self segregation is either bad or good, just that it is fact and exists throughout this entire country.

It's actually kind of funny (funny interesting, not funny haha), how the same MSM that likes to denigrate the "white christian vote" never says a discouraging word about the "black christian vote". Both exist.

OMG I can't believe how much ABC is pushing this ridiculous "national parks are racist" narrative! I just came across this:

Quote:
"The outdoors and public lands suffer from the same systemic racism that the rest of our society does," said Joel Pannell, associate director of the Sierra Club, which is leading an effort to boost diversity in the wilderness and access to natural spaces.

New government data, shared first with ABC News, shows the country's premier outdoor spaces -- the 419 national parks -- remain overwhelmingly white. Just 23% of visitors to the parks were people of color, the National Park Service found in its most recent 10-year survey; 77% were white. Minorities make up 42% of the U.S. population.

"That tells me that we've got a lot of work to do," said David Vela, acting director of the National Park Service.

Government officials and environmental advocates agree that the racial disparity in the outdoors is an existential crisis.

"If we don't address this, and we don't see how all these things are interrelated, then we're going to risk losing everything," said Pannell. "You're not going to have public lands to enjoy."

The U.S. Census Bureau projects people of color will be a majority in America by 2044 -- a demographic shift that will impact park attendance and finances. Community advocates say physical and mental health for minority communities is also at risk.

"I feel like nature is a right to everyone, and we should all feel safe enough to experience it," said Lauren Gay, a Tampa, Florida, mother who chronicles her experiences as a woman of color in the wilderness on her blog and podcast "Outdoorsy Diva."

"We need better ways to cope with stress, to cope with some level of trauma. We all have some level, honestly, of PTSD from a lot of the things we've lived through as people of color -- and nature is a way to do that," Gay said. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/amer...AdX-X5yZC4xMBs
Well then go to the parks! No one is preventing you from doing that!

I cannot wait until November 4th, when much of this alleged racist BS will end, just like it does every 4 years after a presidential election.

Not necessarily. If Trump wins we'll see the real agenda of BLM, looting and burning in righteous fury over losing the election. Nothing says commitment to democracy and commitment to equality like a new stolen Rolex or fancy game system.

If Biden wins the election the defacto President will be his VP. No doubt it will be open season on anything that offends the activists.

I guess the MSM has forgotten that the NPS is a very liberal organization. Or, they have started eating their own....

OK, the story says 77% of the people that visit national parks are white.

White people make up 72% of the population. so we are talking 5% discrepancy?

Question: Why is the park service keeping track of race?

Also, are we really to believe that black people do not have cars?

Is there something morally impure about "self-segregation"--i.e. segregation that is enforced neither by the state nor any private enterprise, but which derives merely from the personal choice to attend or not attend an event or a landmark?

The Park Service keeps track of visitors race because everything is racialized these days. Racism is the new climate change, failure to enthusiastically embrace any charge of "racism" makes you the racist.

Someone ties a garage door pull rope into a noose at a race track months before a black driver is randomly assigned the garage but it is cause for the FBI to assign 15 agents on a snap investigation. Turns out "white" visitors to national parks exceed their racial quota, better investigate the "racism." Meanwhile racial agitators set cities ablaze, authoring waves of violence nationwide. Deface public streets with their names but don't investigate them.

There's something seriously wrong with what ABC is doing here.

Initially it just seems well... stupid
But then, as someone else implied, it comes across as a lame excuse to sow BS division among people for no reason.

I really don't understand why this would even be considered something worth a story AT ALL. Much less a concern about "self segregating". that goes into crazy territory IMO.

It's hard to wrap my head around this "report".

When you understand that ABC and the rest of the Main Stream Media have an agenda and that pushing a racial divide helps to support that agenda, then you understand why they would publish such a pile of horse dung.
