CNN Declares Outdoor Activities Like Hiking, Biking, Fishing and Running to Be Racist Constructs

Recommended Posts

More from the You can't make this shit up DEPT.


CNN’s Leah Asmelash went out of her way to analyze (a generous term) the history of outdoor activities and who participates in them. Citing the history of eugenics, poets like Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau, and President Theodore Roosevelt, she used muddled and inconclusive pieces of evidence to support her conclusion that the history of outdoor activities are steeped in institutional racism (sound familiar)?


While Asmelash does highlight that there was a period where parks were actually segregated between white and black people (which is racist), that time is long gone and there is absolutely nothing from preventing anyone from getting outside and enjoying the outdoors.
