CAMPUS CRAZIES

Liberal White Student Insists Whites Won’t Allow Non-Whites to Enjoy Nature

In an op-ed for the school paper, a student at Pitzer college claims outdoor programs are “predominantly white spaces” that prevent “people of color” from being able to go outside. 

Now, even nature is a white nationalist, yet they keep harping on global warming.

Campus Reform reports Malcolm McCann, a freshman at Pitzer College, claims in the op-ed that outdoor clubs such as the Pitzer Outdoor Adventure (POA) and On the Loose (OTL) are “predominately white spaces.”

“Both clubs claim to be accessible: while trips are open to any student wanting to go, not everyone feels the same ease in entering the outdoors,” McCann writes, adding “This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries.”

“Historically, white people in imperialist conquests have appropriated land as their own,” he claims. “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.”

“Similarly, the image of a modern outdoor enthusiasts [sic] is white, as is the historical image of a naturalist,” he continues. “The great icons of nature—John Muir, Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau—are all white men. At present, most famous rock climbers are also disproportionately white.

McCann also claims the term “outdoorsy” is an expression of “whiteness” that contributes to the exclusion of “people of color.”

“This whiteness manifests in the term ‘outdoorsy’—a descriptor for those who spend a significant time in the outdoors, who are equipped with the necessary gear, and who feel connected to nature,” McCann argues. “The image of the ‘outdoorsy individual’ is an exclusive classification that gives white people the authority to venture into the outdoors freely, leaving people of color behind.”

McCann also claims a lack of money means “people of color” cannot spend time outdoors. 

“Many National Parks are hundreds of miles from large cities. Consequently, only those with access to a vehicle and money for gas will be able to enjoy them,” he writes. “Similarly, only students with economic privilege have the resources to attend summer programs that teach wilderness skills.”

According to McCann, the “emphasis on acquiring requisite skills … excludes low-income individuals.”

Campus Reform reports, Pitzer College is a member institution of the Claremont Colleges. The Claremont colleges heavily fund outdoor programs, something McCann concedes in his op-ed. This means transportation options for students would be subsidized. 

The club McCann is a member of, the “Pitzer Outdoor Adventure,” had more than $7,500 in funding at the beginning of the school year. 

For the outdoor clubs to be more inclusive, McCann suggests having “more accessible, entry-level workshops and trips that do not require advanced technical skills,” adding that white people should be careful not to dominate the word “outdoorsy.”

According to Campus Reform, McCann is a white student. When approached for comment by Campus Reform, he requested to remain off the record and would not comment if he was part of the problem he has established. 

The projection is strong with this one.

      From the archives:
      ***

      A fragment from a blog of a Russian man who went on a business trip to South Africa, translated for your convenience.

      tannen.livejournal.c0m/66587.html

      Me and my friend had to spend roughly 10 hours in Johannesburg. We asked Mikhail and he convinced some kamikaze driver to take us on a tour through the city center. We, the two retards, thought that they were exaggerating about the danger just to frighten us. We thought that we’d get to the center, take a long good stroll through it and show everyone that Russians aren’t afraid of anything.

      We ended up not even coming close to doing any of these things.

      Reason?

      We nearly shat ourselves.

      The descent to Johannesburg from the plateau made the city look great. Beautiful, big, modern. Some skyscrapers here and there, some nice Victorian-style buildings. Green lawns, blue sky.
      Upon actually entering the city, the picture changed drastically.
      It looked completely abandoned.
      There was no electricity.
      Piles of trash just lying in the streets.
      Burst sewer pipes flooding several spots.
      The only thing clear of debris was the main road, the only functional electrical devices were the traffic lights.
      And this was the city center, the relatively safe part of the city.

      Prior to riding into the city, the driver appointed by Mikhail read us a short “do’s and don’ts” lecture. He seemed very tense, gulping often and suspiciously looking around as he spoke:

      “If you cunts want to survive this, do exactly as I say.
      After we enter the city, NO LOUD NOISES, do not ATTRACT ANY ATTENTION!
      NO FUCKING IPHONES OR CAMERAS flashing through the car windows!
      DO NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT with ghouls! (that’s what he called niggers)
      And no matter what happens, DO NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS!
      Because suddenly a lamp post can fall and block the way, and the ghouls will fucking siege us.
      And remember that I have kids, so at least follow these rules for my sake…”

      We spent two hours riding around the city center.
      It was quiet enough in the bus to hear a pin drop.
      To understand what happened to the city, a small historical flashback is needed.

      After the apartheid was over, a two-million swarm of Africans flooded the city, opening the era of African Reqonquista. They were not natives, they just left their usual places in the desert and went wherever life was better. Mikhail, the guy who got us the driver, lived in Johannesburg at that time and told us the following:

      In the middle of an ordinary workday, something happened.
      The office center’s doors opened and an unorganized crowd of several thousand blacks rushed in, carrying their belongings in huge bags. They asked us not to pay any attention to them and continue working, while they were spreading around the building and occupying every bit of territory that was available. Armchairs, stools, sofas, restrooms and hallways – they were everywhere, happily chatting and wasting no time in taking whatever shiny things the building’s original denizens had on them.
      The office became filled with commotion. Chickens were butchered and gutted in the hallways, tables in audience rooms turned into cooking tables, restrooms became bathhouses.
      The polite question “What’s going on?” was answered with “This is our home now”.
      The subsequent, less polite question “What the fuck?!” met a reply “It will be better for everyone”.

      Mikhail called the cops.
      Cops didn’t come.
      They apologized and explained that exactly the same thing is happening across the entire city.
      Then everyone who could started to quietly flee the city, headed towards the suburbs and Cape Town, while erecting barriers to block the paths – hedges, moats, electrified fences. The last district of Johannesburg where you can meet a white man nowadays is the Pretoria suburb.

      After a massive exodus, owners of the buildings started thinking of what to do.

      Bingo! They decided that if they switch off the electricity, water and sewer access to the buildings, the ghouls will leave them and return to the savannah.

      So, they switched them off.
      Ghouls didn’t even notice.

      Of course, in the savannah they had neither of these modern conveniences. “Where do they shit, then?” I asked Mikhail.
      Mikhail replied that the office owners were also puzzled by this – and completely shocked after they found out.

      You see, after invading the buildings, none of the ghouls could figure out what elevator shafts were for. Once they ripped out the elevator doors, they spent a few days scratching heads and spitting into the darkness, until it finally occured to them.

      “Bless the white man’s genius”, thought the ghouls, and the shafts became both toilets and garbage dumps ever since. According to Mikhail, it takes roughly ten years for an average ghoul horde to shit up an office building to the point of complete unliveability. After that, like in good old prehistoric times, the horde migrates, occupying another building.

      We rode on through Johannesburg’s streets, glued to the car windows, devouring the scenery with our eyes. Fashionable modern houses with boarded-up windows passed us by. When we came across a rare open window, we could see fires burning inside, with ghouls lying or walking around them.

      (Once again) According to Mikhail, a new, albeit informal service appeared in Johannesburg. Bunches of tough guys go around offering to take the buildings back from ghouls. It happens like this: in the middle of the night several trucks drive up to the building, and hundred or two of armed thugs goes inside. Quickly, they grab the sleeping ghouls and simply start throwing them out of the building, trying not to wake the whole horde up. Before the horde completely comes to its senses and starts expressing its displeasure, the thugs weld shut all doors and windows on the first floor and put up an electrified fence. After the building is cleaned and refurbished, it turns back into an office.

      That’s how the remnants of Johannesburg’s white population live and work. In the evening and during the night they keep safe behind armored doors and private guards. In the morning they get into their cars and quickly, without stopping, ride outside their fortresses to work. After a short ride through more-or-less safe streets, they dive into one of the heavily guarded foxholes that leads to the underground parking garages. And that concludes their arrival to the workplace.

      Another funny thing I noticed – if two “live” buildings are nearby, they are often connected by an aerial passage at the 10th or 11th floor. So office workers can even visit each other if they want to. The only trick to it is not to look down. Down there is ghoul territory.

    oh i’m sorry. because blacks choose to spend their money on cars, stereo systems and 2000 dollar rims. poppin bottles in the club, and weave (talk about appropriation) i’m supposed to feel bad about going camping? not sorry at all. here’s a thought. get a cheap pup tent and pitch it in your back yard. make a small campfire, roast some wieners and marshmallows and see how much you like it. you can pretend the neighborhood pitbulls are forest creatures. then instead of wasting your money on the afore mentioned items, you can buy real camping gear.

    …and the basketball court is often a black space- why can’t what is be without being indicative of institutional racism or repression? Is there a campus in America where black students have formed a hiking club, rock climbing club or surf club of their own volition? One? Mr McCann your parents are wasting their money on your tuition-no small chunk of change there.You want everyone to want what you want and we are not all the same.

  13. Maya Pinion

    November 18, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    Or, maybe it’s because blacks tend to live mostly in the inner cities and are unfamiliar with the natural outdoor spaces or are just uninterested in going there. Ya think, maybe?

    well….trees dont have ho’s, nor does the creek serve Hennessy, and last i checked a lowered obnoxiously loud Chrysler wont fit on a trail….is that what they mean by racist outdoors? give me break – all any one has to do is venture to a state/public park on a holiday and the racial mix is astoundingly….even. when i lived in Indianapolis the parks were predominantly non-white during holidays and summer weekends. i don’t buy into this new found push for “there’s racism in America” crap. this type of thinking is the reason there IS racism in the country. every one wants to dig it up and flaunt whatever ridiculous idea they feel is racist and start the process all over again. we are not all equal. some are smarter, or stronger, or better looking, or simply a better person. live with it. if youre a slacker, who is an ass and dont like being called out….stop being one. same goes for the “theres racism” people. Liberal democrats were the party of slavery, no theyre the party of catchy headlines to nothing.

    ‘Historically white people have appropriated land as their own.’

    Africa is a continent with many nations and they all have borders. You can’t have borders without conquest or appropriation.
    Same holds true for the American Indians before European arrival.
    Like others, they soon learned that borders mean nothing if you aren’t willing or able to defend them.

    This problem is simple to solve. Let’s just move all the national parks closer to the ghettos so they can all join hands and frolic through the woods chasing unicorns.
