We all know that liberals, particularly those who are students or “educators” in the realm of higher academia, just love to turn anything and everything into some sort of big social issue, especially in relation to the myth of “white privilege.”
It seems like you can’t turn your head and spit without running into charges of racism for this, that, and the other thing. It’s safe to say that according to progressives, everything is racist.
And according to one student, that includes having access to the outdoors.
Do you love the great outdoors? Do you find nature comfortable and relaxing? Well, if you do, it’s probably because you’re white, according to a student at Claremont Colleges in California.
That’s right. In a recent op-ed in a student-ran newspaper, student Malcolm McCann claimed that non-white people are excluded from the outdoors because of white supremacy.
“Due to the predominance of whiteness in the outdoors, people of color have been denied access to the outdoors,” the op-ed says.
Yes. McCann seems to take issue with outdoor programs at Claremont, which is a conglomerate of five colleges known as the “5Cs.” Those programs, McCann argued, are the most funded on campus, yet are saturated with white supremacy. McCann admitted the clubs are open for all people, no matter the color of someone’s skin, but not everyone feels safe to attend.
“This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries,” he claimed
The writer added: “Historically, white people in imperialist conquests have appropriated land as their own. North America rightfully belongs to indigenous communities, yet it has been taken away from them by force. Consequently, a false sense of ownership of nature permeates white America.”
So how, exactly, does McCann propose to solve such an urgent, pressing matter that threatens to tear our nation apart at the racially charged seams?
By affirming that nature belongs to all people, not just those of the white race, which I thought was a given, but according to liberals, that’s a big, fat no.
Oh and white folk should walk on egg shells to make sure they don’t “dominate ownership” of the word “outdoorsy.”
Where does the left come up with this stuff? There’s more but I just can’t bear to continue on with it.
This is the kind of ridiculousness you can expect when liberals are a dominate force in culture and society. Non-issues turned into actual issues, all so the social justice warrior can appease their own conscience.
