A team of nine black climbers is attempting to scale Mount Everest to tackle the mountain's 'intentional lack of access for black people' and mountaineering's 'colonial history'. The Full Circle Everest Expedition, which climbing leader Fred Campbell described as 'the first all black and brown expedition to the highest place on earth' in an Instagram video, is hoping to change the future of mountaineering. The first two men to ever complete the climb to Mount Everest's summit were Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, from Nepal, and Sir Edmund Hillary, from New Zealand, in 1953. In fact, many people from the Sherpa community climb the mountain daily during peak season to carry


Of course Mt. Everest is racist. Just look at it, it's white! Not a single discount liquor store, nowhere to get your weave did, no booming sound systems either.

Lack of access for black people ? Do they climb differently than other people? Do they have more or less arms and legs than white people? The people on the left must be exhausted from all the time they spend looking for racism .

How can a mountain block access to itself? It’s a mountain, for Pete’s sake. It’s there. Climb it if you want. Or don’t. Your choice. A mountain can’t be racist. That’s just stupid.

I’m white. No way I’m doing that. Do these climbers have a Valentines Card collection too? If they don’t does that mean that collecting Valentines cards is racist? Or just that not many people want to and those people are all distributed within the white race? I don’t think it’s true that everything white people do is worth emulating. In any event, they’ve proved their assertion is not true. Aren’t tibetians pretty dark skinned?

The mountain will kill a black person just as fast as a white or any other shade of skin person if s/he/it fails to respect it. That is ALL that matters. You pay your money and get in line, get up, get down.

This is one of the most pathetic stories I’ve ever read. They just don’t get it. No one “intentionally” kept them from doing this. The earlier climbers didn’t have GoFundMe and a bunch of clothing and gear sponsors. And look at them, read the bios included. They think it’s a lark. I wouldn’t want to have to rely on any one of them and that is what this is all about. Lotsa luck. They’ll need it. They don’t have enough else… (Note to the guy who trains by running up stairs and down hills or whatever in his neighborhood: How’s the oxygen?)

"A team of nine black climbers is attempting to scale Mount Everest to tackle the mountain's 'intentional lack of access for black people' and mountaineering's 'colonial history'." The WORLD respects merit & accomplishment. That is NOT epitomized by "snatch & grabbers" or educational under-performance or fathers who disappear. Victims and criminals don't deserve respect (though some victims deserve compassion). Nor do whiners and victims deserve respect. Excel at what you offer society and the world will beat a path to your door no matter what color you are. The world is color-blind to demonstrated ability. SJWs will NEVER obtain respect for their victim-clients.

I’ve seen movies about mountain climbing. They never end well. Don’t people usually work up to Mt Everest? You’d think a practice run on a few easier climbs would be a good idea. I hope someone posts an update when they’re back down.

Yes, God put that mountain there and made it so steep that Black people couldn't climb it, while Asian, White and Indigenous people have been able to make the trek. Perhaps the DNA code changes brought on by the COVID shots will enable Blacks to achieve the worthy goal of climbing to the top of this mountain.

Seriously doubtful that racism is involved. Sherpas do it frequently, BUT, they probably don't wear sneakers or attempt to dribble a basketball while trying to stay on top. Are blacks admitting their oxygen intake is not as great others? Is this where the DUMB comes from?

Experienced climbers routinely die on Everest. It is an unforgiving environment where humans cannot live naturally. If they attempt this trip, it is going to end badly. But, that's a big if. Call me cynical, but I think this group is hoping to collect a lot of "donations", pretend to train and never actually attempt it.

Hmmm... "black or brown", eh? The first Indian expedition to successfully scale Everest was in 1965, and except for Sherpas was "All Indian".... Chances are, you know, that most of them, if not all, were definitely "brown" or "black" in skin tone..... Perhaps they mean "African"? Well, Mt. Everest is not in Africa, could that have something to do with the traditionally few Africans to climb that mountain? Who do you think was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in the not so long ago? Vikings?

An inflammatory article written by a puerile doofus. It appears to be an attempt to generate sympathy for an ethnic group by citing imaginary racism. It's like all the hoopla around the Red Tails, the group of WW II black avaitors who 'never got their recognition' for being...a bunch of guys who learned how to fly. By the time they entered the war, the Luftwaffe had been effectively neutralized. White liberals are actually insane people-they want to prop up blacks in every aspect of society, but only on THEIR terms. Namely, that blacks openly acknowledge that they are victims, have been victims, and will continue to be victims forever. But if someone like Candace Owens or Larry Elder calls them out for their hypocrisy, they they are called white supremist!! The Left are indeed crazy.

If they are not successful they will probably not be forgotten. The mountain's slopes have about 250 frozen bodies that cannot be moved. One infamous one is known as 'green boots' who was used as a landmark for about 20 years until his body mysteriously disappeared.

#12, #29, #36, and #49 nailed it. Like aviation, or the sea, the mountain doesn't care what color you are. You will die just quickly as someone of any skin color. Base Camp 2 is ~17900 feet above sea level, then another 11000 more altitude to the summit. And as noted, the dead remain on the mountain as a grim reminder to all who attempt the climb.

Mountaineering is racist because there are no mountains in Africa for them to "evolve" on. Swimming is racist, because blacks don't float. Altitude is racist because blacks can't tolerate cold like those of other skin color. Watch as they become the first group of black mountaineers to quit the climb, or all die from an amateur mistake. Mark my word, the only reason NASA wants to go back to the Moon is so they can send a a woman, a trannie, a homo, a black, a mooslim, an asian, a ____. That exclusive "White Male Moon Club" is way too raayycisst!

Every climber of Mt. Everest I have ever read about did it as a personal challenge. It is one of the great acts you can accomplish as a climber. But blacks just can't seem to do anything anymore without sticking lie-beral politics and racism into the mix. And that just makes me hope they fail, and learn a hard lesson in the process. Then maybe they can come back and actually just climb Everest for the sheer thrill of being able to say they accomplished this great task. But as long as they are going to make it a big loud racist action, I doubt they can fight gravity and the weight of that chip on their shoulders at the same time!!!

Mt. Everest is located in two countries, Tibet, claimed by China, and Nepal. The population of Nepal is 80 percent Mongolian. Prior to 1953, Nepal denied Everest access to all foreigners. George Mallory and Andrew Irvine climbed the Tibetan side in 1924, but never returned. British climberEdmond Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Nogay were the first to officially return from the summit in 1953. Neither Tibet nor Nepal was ever colonized by any European state.

The CEO of Moderna says that a fourth coronavirus vaccine shot may soon be necessary due to declining efficacy of booster shots. "I will be surprised when we get that data in the coming weeks that it’s holding nicely over time—I would expect that it’s not gonna hold great," Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel told CNBC on Thursday regarding the strength of the booster shots.

Treasure hunters who believe they found a huge cache of fabled US civil war-era gold in Pennsylvania are now on the prowl for something as elusive as the buried booty itself: government records of the FBI’s excavation.

Mayor Eric Adams had tough words for Queens cops on his first day on the job, warning the bad apples that he’ll bounce them from the NYPD if they’re “abusive to my community,” video obtained by The Post shows. The former NYPD captain-turned-politician and newly minted Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell paid a visit to the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica on New Year’s Day, making a brief media appearance outside.

That is, whenever she makes an official appearance, this music is played for her, just as Hail to the Chief is played when the president appears. Someone within the Marine Corps band wrote it, although there is some dispute as to whether the White House requested such music or the Marine Corps band members spontaneously felt that Jill needed that special song.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has become persona non grata to progressives. Which is, truthfully, a remarkably easy feat. He started irritating them around a year ago when he criticized politicians who didn’t obey their own COVID-19 mandates. More recently he deplored the “woke mob” and “cancel culture.” The woke mob became truly apoplectic when Rodgers wasn’t clear about his vaccination status and then spoke with popular podcaster Joe Rogan, subsequently saying he had availed himself of the same COVID-19 treatment Rogan claimed to have used successfully. You know, the so-called “horse de-wormer.” Which is not a Dr. Fauci-approved “vaccine.”
