  • ABC news says that going to a National Park is racist

    My god, when will it end?

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politic...c-news-n599372

    Everything that white people enjoy is racist, because they’re white people. Even going to national parks is racist now, because most of the people who go to national parks are white.....

    PJ Media - Media Bias/Fact Check

    Overall, we rate PJ Media to be Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies as well as numerous failed fact checks.
    Not saying ABC News didn't say that, but you might want to make sure by checking other sources.

        Obviously the crisis is of educational nature. Everyone with half a bean in his head would have had as first thought reading this article that the answer to the issue at hand is poverty and all the issues that come along with it. A short check of wealth distribution numbers and its pretty clear why the distribution of park visitors is 75:25. Poor people dont have time or the freedom to chill in the park. Geez, no wonder you guys are hatin the media outlets, if they are too stupid to connect two dots and mention the real reason for why the numbers are what they are.
        On the other hand, why do you read such crap articles in the first place? Ah yes, the educational crisis...

          I read them to see what the people on the left are whining about now. The media is so biased in this country that it hard to believe. If it was this biased to the right I would be complaining about it too

            I think its rather telling, that your right wing media didnt criticize the obvious stupidity of the abc article. They dont care about the main problem behind the flawed arguments but only focus on an equally dumb point of view. Both articles were just as shortsighted and outright stupid.
            I am deeply convinced, the full force capitalism has messed up many americans thinking. You are confused and cant tell right from wrong, because everything you consume is meant to manipulate your behaviour.
            There are other countries that have high quality, truely independent press, not meant to wash your brain but to give you all the information you need to decide on your own. I am pretty sure you have stuff like that in the US too. Its just very difficult for you people to tell good from bad.

              ABC didn't say that going to national parks is racist. The article is about getting more black people to enjoy the outdoors and some of the issues faced when doing so. Given how black people are treated in general, I personally wouldn't feel safe.

                By claiming it's the great white......... how is that supposed to make anyone want to enjoy the outdoors? This is just another race baiting article.

                How are black people "treated in general" that makes you feel so unsafe?

                  You are correct about "educational nature" but your application is wrong.

                  The parks are open to everyone that wants to visit. A lot of people from all races don't like going out into the woods. Animals, insects, plants.... people come up with a multitude of reasons not to go out and explore nature. Many of the parents that won't go out into the woods willingly send thier children in the hope that they will enjoy nature.

                  "Poor people".... could you expand on that statement?

                  The ABC article is clearly saying that the national parks are "GREAT WHITE OUTDOORS".....it appears that you are saying only people of color are poor, is that the case?

                    White Sands National Park is blatantly racist and should be renamed. Perhaps that is why there was so much controversy over the proposal that it be designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.

                      That doesn't mean people who go to parks are racist.

                      By claiming it's the great white......... how is that supposed to make anyone want to enjoy the outdoors? This is just another race baiting article.
                      From the article:

                      "If we don't address this, and we don't see how all these things are interrelated, then we're going to risk losing everything," said Pannell. "You're not going to have public lands to enjoy."
                      Is that something that should be ignored just because it involves race? Again, your first instinct is to silence people instead of facing the problem.

                      How are black people "treated in general" that makes you feel so unsafe?
                      In my experience, being the only black guy somewhere generally leads to being harassed. Facing that in the middle of no where, wouldn't be worth the risk.

                        Yet there are more poor White People than Poor Black People. Maybe it should be titled going to the national parks is for rich people?

                          Your experience being the only black guy......

                          There are blacks that go out to the national parks.

                          My experience being the only white guy on numerous occasions has shown that harassment doesn't happen unless it is instigated by the person that is afraid.

                          If you treat people as humans; race, religion, beliefs, money.....doen't matter.

                            That's the thing, wealth has nothing to do with visiting national parks......

                            Thus was another race bait article by the MSM to cause more division in America.

                              How is it race bait when the point of their concern is that the parks aren't receiving enough guests. They're not receiving enough guests because, according to them, minorities aren't going. Do you have data that would prove them wrong?
