It’s official, now: everything is racist.
We’re not just talking about actors inadvertently referring to “coloured people” or crime figures that show that black Americans overwhelmingly dominate crime statistics. Oh, no: nothing escapes the stain of “racism” any more. Maths, music, statues, Abraham Lincoln, chess, golf, craft beer, milk…
Even lakes and trees.
The BFD has already reported on the “racist tree” that narrowly escaped being chopped down by an angry mob of “anti-racists”.
Now we learn, though, that not just any old tree, but all trees are racist. They’re almost as bad as white men.
In Portland, Oregon, Ida B. Wells-Barnett High School has delayed a vote to adopt an evergreen tree as its mascot because some fear such a mascot would be reminiscent of lynching, the Portland Tribune reported. The school’s current mascot is the Trojans but was set to be changed to evergreens following the suggestion from a committee “comprised of students, staff and community members,” the outlet reported.
“But just before the Portland Public Schools Board of Education’s vote to approve the new mascot Tuesday, March 30, Director Michelle DePass shared community concerns of an unwanted correlation between Ida B. Wells—the historic Black activist, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who documented and crusaded against lynching—and a tree which could conjure up reminders of hanging people with ropes from branches,” the Tribune reported.
Cue the world’s stupidest committee discussion.
DePass asked the mascot committee if they considered any concerns when coming up with the new mascot[…]
Mascot committee member Martin Osborne told the Tribune that the lynching connection was discussed, but those concerns were put to rest.
“We did talk about it, but we were looking at the symbolism more as a tree of life, than a tree of death,” Osborne, who is black, said in response to DePass’ comments. “You could certainly take it either way, depending upon your position.”
Well, depending on whether or not you’re a stone-cold, race-obsessed cretin, I guess.
Undeterred, DePass, who on the evidence should seriously consider dropping the “P” from her name, persisted in proving to the world that she’s a drooling idiot.
DePass, who is also black, called on other board members to agree with her in viewing the new mascot as a racist symbol.
“Lynching is a really difficult topic to talk about and as a sole Black board member, I invite you, beg you, implore you to join me in disrupting the situations, practices, that are racist. I can’t do this by myself,” she said, according to the Tribune.The Daily Wire
One wonders what other things she has trouble doing by herself. Tying her shoelaces?
Still, take it from the normal people: you’re doing a bang-up job of showing the world what a race-obsessed moron you really are, all by yourself.
