Nature Is Racist? ‘Systemic Racism’ Blocks
Black People From Going Outdoors

Original Article

A report published by Outside Interactive alleged that America’s historically racist policies have contributed to “the nature gap,” resulting in black Americans having less enjoyment of the so-called “great outdoors.”Erin Key, the report’s author, is pushing for minorities to use their free time outdoors in nature through the use of grants and advocacy work. She does not, however, mention that there are no modern laws prohibiting non-whites from visiting public nature sites.“Though many don’t like to speak about it, so many of our living relatives experienced racism when it was legal —

In some cities if they go outside they stand a good chance of getting shot. Oh, wait. If they stay inside in those same neighborhoods the also stand a good chance of getting shot. These people are so pathetic. It must suck to be them.

Over the years whenever we could, my wife and I have made it a point to visit D.C. for cherry blossoms - even when the Kenyan was infesting the People's House. One thing we noticed was that in 50% black D.C. there were hardly any to be seen at the Tidal Basin. There were plenty of Asians - Japanese (obviously) , Indians. But no blacks. Surely neither money nor law prevents them.

Look, let me explain something about black people. When they go on vacation, they don't "rough it". They don't hike The Appalachin Trail. Or visit Antietam on a 92 degree day. Or camp out in a tent in Daniel Boone National Forest. Or trapse along on a 22 mile trail in Grand Teton. Black people don't do that. They go on cruises. Or visit a city. Or a beach. They do not go places to exert themselves more physically or experience rugged discomfort. That is a WHITE thing.

I have been backpacking in wild country in the Rockies and the Great Smokey Mountains since the early '70s, and visited several dozen national parks . I have never once seen a black person more than a hundred yards from their car in those places, and the number that I have ever seen in a national park at all in that time runs in the single digits. I have no idea why, but IME, black folks have damned little interest in the great outdoors.

Tell that to Obama’s son that was tailgating me today while riding through the Smokie Mountains National Park. He was flashing his lights and honking his horn while less than 6 feet from my bikes bumper. And I was riding 10 over the posted limit. Finally pulled over and enjoyed watching him for the next 20 miles do the same to the car in front of him.

We used to visit Longwood Gardens (outside of Philadelphia) several times a year. Always a feast for the eyes and soul. One of the most interesting things I noticed was how many Asians visited…and the complete lack of blacks.

No surprise. Most of the blacks are honorable, people, working hard to feed their families and provide a better life for their children. The rest are too busy killing each other to care about anything decent, much less visit our National parks.

People like this are racist by manufacturing fake reasons why some things or someone is racist when it is not true or possible. All of this is being done intentionally to create racial divide and tension and provoke racial violence. Stop it now. How about white clouds are racist as well as dark clouds. White paint is definitely racist and black peoples never use white paint. Cut me a break.

Whats next? Air is racist! After all, many minorities live in urban areas. Urban areas have worse air quality than rural areas. White people live in rural areas with cleaner air. So the air must be racist!

If every non-black person and everything about the Earth is racist, maybe they should consider another planet that is more friendly and tolerant. A race that is so helpless and sensitive must have had some reason for coming into existence on this hostile planet. Maybe the Dalai Lama or the Oracle at Delphi has the answer but I suspect they are both white and are racist as well.

FTA: “Through grantmaking, resource gathering, collaboration, and advocacy, we work with the ski industry as well as grassroots organizations across the United States to provide low or no-cost programs for youth traditionally denied access to winter sports,” So this is really just a marketing push by the ski industry. They lost money last year due to covid shutdowns and are now looking for handouts (grantmaking).

They can’t stand other opinions. They can’t. They cannot be allowed to live. The people who hold them must be targeted and smeared. All must bow before the unholy altar of American progressivism. If you can’t convince them, destroy them, or deprogram them. That’s what The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and Nikole Hannah-Jones wanted yesterday. Grabien’s Tom Elliott clipped the madness. People who support Trump are mentally defective, so they must be deprogrammed. What does that mean? Sounds Stalinist in the extreme. It also reeks of Chinese Cultural Revolution underpinnings.

They are now being sent to this jail rather than being released like the Biden Admin. has been doing. We are adding more officers, National Guard & jails,” Abbott said in a tweet Thursday.
