Libs say national parks must get rid of rangers to make minorities welcome -they fear and loathe police

Remember when President Obama said our national parks are “racists” because minorities have no “representation” among them?

Obama made the suggestion during a June visit to Yosemite National Park

Now there’s a left-wing group touting a “scientific” study saying that minorities have no “access” to our parks.

Centennial Initiative aims to guide the federal government to redesign our park system just for minorities. By the way the recommendations read, it appears they mean mostly black Americans.

One thing they demand is that the U.S. Park Service eliminate the military-styled vehicles and park ranger uniforms because they “have law enforcement connotations.” Apparently we cannot expect black Americans to go to parks because they fear and loathe police. The uniforms in particular “present a significant impediment to engaging all Americans,” the group claims.

Along those lines, another study from Conservation Science Partners makes even more surreal claims about our parks. Pushed by the far, far left website and the left-wing group Centers for American Progress, this study claims blacks have no “access” to parks.

This study claims that minority communities in the western U.S. are not as close to national parks as white communities, and therefore blacks have “no access” to the parks.

More than that, the groups that want to change our parks recommend that whites be removed from historical markers and historical presentations and be replaced by minorities so the parks might better “inspire” black visitors.

“Americans represent an array of cultures, ethnicities, and traditions. These differences have shaped our nation’s identity and should be reflected within our national parks’ leadership, workforce, and educational outreach,” a group of activists wrote in a letter to Obama. “When visiting America’s public lands, our youth  –  who grow increasingly diverse every year  –  should feel inspired when seeing someone of their same ethnicity, gender, or cultural background represented in the history of the stories they hear and the people from whom they learn.”
