‘I don’t think black folks like to camp as much as white folks!’: Burning Man founder tries to defend the annual festival’s lack of diversity

The founder of Burning Man tried to defend the lack of diversity at the annual festival with quite a generalization on Friday: ‘I don’t think black people like to camp,’ he claimed.

Larry Harvey shared his thoughts on the subject during a press conference at the festival, which is currently taking place in the desert of Black Rock City, Nevada. One of the festival’s ten principles is ‘racial inclusion’.

After claiming that the lack of diversity might be due to ‘historic reasons’, he clarified his comments on Friday.

    I always thought Burning Man would be way better with more inter-city gang violence, rape, and murder.

    • That’s diversity!

      Finally, a valid use for ‘bussing’.

  • So next year it will be full of black campers and gun shot victims I guess. No? Am I racist for saying that? #Fact

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      No, just conscious.

    As far as I can see, nothing is stopping black folks from organizing their own Burning Man festival. They could call it Burning Whitey. And if they did, not one MSM reporter or social justice faggot would dare to call them prejudiced.

    • MarcusWoodson

      Dang, I wish I’d have said that

  • Why is visible diversity such a huge deal for liberals?

    Oh, yeah- liberals have to feel that they are useful, hence, complaints about everything. I suppose it has not occurred to them that the Burning Man festival may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

    Liberals’ love for political multiculturalism ends at food.

      Why you asked. It is because they are the true racists, who cannot see beyond the colour of one’s skin. I cannot express just how much I am fed up with this rubbish, nor can I understand why anyone like this guy feels obligated to explain and go on the defensive when asked leading questions by these racists.

      • Exactly.

        The very people who claim to want equality are the same people who put everyone into separate tribes and to treat those tribes separately.

    • Gary

      Liberals don’t even want blacks in their wealthy white neighbourhoods right here in Toronto.
      Blacks in Toronto are spoiled where we have their Ghettos with wireless phones wide screen TVs , legal aid and very little Policing from crying racisms when they do police the gov housing hell holes.

      • Build walls around the neighbourhoods and see how they like it then.

      We must all be different together!!

    ‘I Don’t Think Black Folks Like To Camp As Much As White Folks!’

    This is a fact. As strange as it may seem.

    • Justin St.Denis

      African-Americans by and large cannot swin, usually part of the camping experience.

  • lolwut?
  • tom_billesley

    Blacks are more likely to be camp than to be camping.

  • Tom Forsythe

    But if black people started acting more like white people, then the left would complain about the destruction of their “culture.”
