THE RACIST TREES OF OUR NATIONAL PARKS

21 posts in this topic

Mickey Fearn, the National Park Service Deputy Director for Communications and Community Assistance, made headlines when he claimed that black people don’t visit national parks because they associate them with slaves being lynched by their masters.

Yellowstone, the first national park, was created in 1872 in Wyoming. Slavery was over by then and no one had ever been lynching slaves around Old Faithful anyway. But false claims of racism die very hard.

Now Alcee Hastings, an impeached judge, and a coalition of minority groups is demanding increased “inclusiveness” at national parks. High on their list is the claim that, “African-Americans have felt unwelcome and even fearful in federal parklands during our nation’s history because of the horrors of lynching.”  What do national parks have to do with lynchings? Many national parks have trees. People were hung from trees. It’s racial guilt by arboreal association. Trees are racist down to their roots.

The origin of the bizarre racist lynching theory of national parks appears to be Carolyn Finney. Finney was an actress noted for, apparently, little more than an appearance in The Nutt House. Then she became a cause célèbre for race activists when she was denied tenure by Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management because her work didn’t meet academic standards.

Her supporters blamed racism, rather than her academic shortcomings, and protested vocally.

These days she’s a diversity advisor to the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board. What wasn’t good enough for UC Berkeley is good enough for national parks. She is also the author of Black Faces, White Spaces. In it she claims that “oppression and violence against black people in forests and other green spaces can translate into contemporary understandings that constrain African-American environmental understandings.”

Finney cites the work of Joy DeGruy Leary who invented a Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome that she claims black people suffer from. Affected by PTSS, black people experience “fear and mistrust of forests and other green spaces.” According to Finney, the tree is a racist symbol to black people.

“Black people also wanted to go out in the woods and eat apples from the trees,” Finney explains.” But black people were lynched on the trees. The tree became a big symbol.” Black people are triggered by trees and suffer Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome flashbacks. You can’t expect them to go to on a hike.

In addition to complaining about the racist trees, the inclusion initiative also claimed that national parks alienate Latinos because of the “color of the uniforms that rangers wear.”

Really? Okay, besides the fact that its doubtful the forestry service needs a diversity advisor,  she's stereotyping white people as tree lovers and apple killers?  Do black people use pencils and paper? I think so, so where does the trauma end? Those products are made from wood you know.  Must be hell to be afraid of using toilet paper because it might rise up and hang you.  Glad I don't have to suffer that. Must be part of my white privilege. 

I have been to Yosemite a couple of times and definitely saw some black people there, but maybe they should open a Foot Locker there to debut the new Air Jordans if they want to increase diversion. An Abercrombie and Fitch for white people,  a Home Depot for Hispanics, Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-A for Christians, a 7/11 for Middle Eastern folk, and a Kosher deli for the Jewish people.  A diversified mall of America.  If I left anyone out, and I'm almost certain i did, I  hope that I didn't offend you

Hmm, maybe if we cut all the trees down, the forests won't be so scary. But we also can't let the grass grow too tall, so that snakes can hide and jump out and bite your ankles. 

But we can live in cities where people and cars thrive like fleas on a dog's back. Cuz people and cars on roads are harmless. :rolleyes:

Like humans, trees need to be reprogrammed. Trees will be safe when they no longer identify with the role they played in the lynchings.

Guys, just have enough time to drop in for a moment, you see I'm busy retraining the cattle guards.  They start forgetting real easy if you don't stay on 'em.  Anyhow, since most people can't see the forest for the trees, and since those trees are employed by the government or maybe even the BLM, they should know than to act like that.  I mean we employed these trees, we shouldn't have to take it from them too...

In order to protect them employees we need smokey bear to remind us all that the government is way too lazy to take care of them themselves, so only you can prevent trees from being so racist.
