Boulder Says White People Suck

Can there be such a thing as white self-erasure?

Boulder, Colorado has plenty of city parks with boring names. Foothills Community Park, Bluff Park, and Pineview Park come to mind. So when the Boulder Human Relations Commission — itself a caricature of Boulder’s PC culture — decided to rename Columbus Day as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” and, as part of the exercise, to rename a park in honor of the area’s long-ago majority, there is a clear intent when the place whose name is selected to be stricken from memory is Settler’s Park.

As CBS4 Denver notes, “Settler’s Park was named because it was thought to be the location of the first permanent camp of American settlers in the Boulder area.” Well, there aren’t any white people left in Boulder so why celebrate the first whites to get here, right?

    Lay off the minorities you privilegers!!! I’ll have you know Africans invented bananas…..and bongo drums…….and didgeridoos ……tap dancing….and machetes……..using burning car tires as a fashion accessory….and ivory keys on pianos….all kinds of stuff.

  • One would think that if people weren’t going to be Americans, they would at least be exemplars of X community so praiseworthy that they would merit a state holiday.

    The “gimme-gimme” culture is lazy.

    Whitey in these scenarios is congenitally guilt ridden and apologetic….self effacing ninnies..
    Where in hell did that reflex come from?
    I am so proud and pleased at my forbears courage and discipline and charity and industry and desire to make the world better.
    And bless the world we did.
    But today we are to feel bad that some folks are lazy stupid and incapable of our standards?
    Not this mick….I want these calculating bums kicked to the kerb or gutter…
