Liberals blame slack black national park attendance on white racism

Have you ever gone to a national park and noticed that minorities are not represented in the exact proportions to the general population?

Well, the New York Times certainly has!

    About thirty years ago I went to Mount Rushmore. Quite impressive. And absolutely white. At a guess there were a thousand people looking at the Mountain and there was not one black face.

    Now, to be fair, South Dakota is not exactly teeming with black people. But this is, after all, a “National” monument. Not a black person in the place. I thought it was weird.

    • It’s camping almost.

      Pretty soon, there will be a Mexican family living in Lincoln’s nose.

    It is more diverse than the NYT board of directors.

      and MSNBC.

      Leaving massive amounts of trash behind and illegal chemical dumping are “acts of love” you racist!

      • Tom Forsythe

        Don’t forget the grow-ops!

  • Xavier

    Next: Incentivize blacks to attend parks.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      They are already working on that.
      I can’t wait until the knockout game and polar bear hunting takes the Yosemite Valley by storm.

    African-American ferals are an urban species. They do not fare well in the midst of nature. Most cannot swim. Few can hike more than a few feet before “hearing something scary”.

      Actually I was very surprised to find exactly the same thing in West Africa. I was shocked to discover just how ignorant they were of the native wildlife, flora and nature in general. This was pretty much the same for those living in what we called the bush in small villages and mud huts. I knew far more about the wildlife, since I loved real primitive camping and did a lot of research. I still wonder to what extent this was due to Islam.

  • David

    I dare say, my better half and I have visited more states than most americans and I don’t recall seeing any blacks in a camping situation. We did see some swarthy gentleman carrying yoghurt containers to the outhouse in a campsite in northern BC. We were quite flummoxed by this until we realized that death cultists wiped their bums with their hand.

    Lack of minorities is one of the attractions. Makes the parks a nice place to go while on vacation.

      Finally someone said it! 😀

        Classical music concerts are nice that way also. You never see a riot over how the violin solo was played.

  • jayme

    New Americans/Canadians don’t deal well with wildlife i have a couple neighbours who got freaked out when they say a racoon for the 1st time.

    • David

      Racoons, skunks and coyotes are a regular sight in Vancouver.

        in our little village there is a really nice Phillipina lady who is scared rigid about bears, if there is a bear in town it seems to seek her out just to say BOO, I think the bears somehow sense her fear and make a point of rocking her world any chance they get. the last outrage was a yearling shinnying up a tree outside her bathroom window and grinning at her out while she was in the bath

        • Alain

          She has every reason to fear them. Contrary to Walt Disney and our sidewalk environmentalists, black bears are dangerous and kill far more people every year in Canada than grizzles. Black bears are known to be predatory towards humans whereas grizzles rarely are. Grizzles have a short fuse and will certainly attack and do serious damage, even causing death, but to date not because they see you as prey.

          • ntt1

            well sure but their visits to town are rare and the lack of attractants has them moving through quickly its is just that she seems to attract them, if she walks to the store there will be a bear on the trail. its a talent perhaps.

        Nothing like seeing a Cayote running down Robson street during the day and everyone thinks it’s just skinny German Sheppard.

        I remember in the 90’s at the height of the Skunk population explosion, man you couldn’t walk anywhere without running into groups of them and the wars they’d have over crabs at Second beach with the Racoons.

          Love your avatar 🙂

          • lolwut?

            Looks nice when my posts get through on CBC.

            It’s starting to trend now, seeing a lot on Youtube.
            the libtards are having a fit.

          • Canadian

            Me too!

            How do I get away with mine?

          • lolwut?

            I had the one with the bomb turban also, not a peep.
            With yours, you really have to focus to see what it is.

    • Alain

      If they are of a certain group they are terrified of all dogs, any dog.

      • David

        Dogs are mans best friend.

        • ntt1

          my brothers dog annoyed the hell out of a large cinnamon bear when it ran ahead up the trail the idiot dog then ran from the now pissed off bear and brought it right back to him.
          luckily for all the bear veered off and nobody got hurt.

    Old story that keeps getting recycled by various news agencies.

    The first time I saw it was 2 years ago in the Toronto Star.

    Not sure that the link will work but I fear my little place on the Island is doomed to be culturally unenriched as the above is what we see out our bedroom window a few days a week.

      I lived in Prince Rupert for a few months, my cat used to go out every night and play with the deer that swam over from the mainland every night to eat grass on people’s lawns and to escape the bears and wolves.

      Wish I had footage of that, he and several deer would chase each other around in circles for a couple hours in a small field next to my building
      every single night.

      Cats seem to get along with deer a lot.

        Finally, a cougar a deer can handle.

    “The Scarlet Tide”

    Well I recall his parting words
    Must I accept his fate
    Or take myself far from this place
    I thought I heard a black bell toll
    A little bird did sing
    Man has no choice
    When he wants every thing

    We’ll rise above the scarlet tide
    That trickles down through the mountain
    And separates the widow from the bride

    Man goes beyond his own decision
    Gets caught up in the mechanism
    Of swindlers who act like kings
    And brokers who break everything
    The dark of night was swiftly fading
    Close to the dawn of day
    Why would I want him just to lose him again

    We’ll rise above the scarlet tide
    That trickles down through the mountain
    And separates the widow from the bride

  • Dana Garcia

    I had a long talk with my Chinese bartender a while back about the great outdoors, its beauty etc. He just wasn’t into it. He didn’t like the bugs and the country sounds at night freaked him out. He hated the trees that city planted along the street near the bar — a rare bit of nature in a concrete desert — because they were messy. He grew up in San Francisco Chinatown and liked going to 49ers games for an outing.

    Put a hair extensions salon in every park. Attendance will explode

  • Surele Surele

    but, but, but…. can we force them to visit? or should we simply make the entrance fee half of that of those white racists? Yeah, that would be just and fair.
