NBC is Rebuked and Ridiculed For Report About Black People Needing “SAFE SPACES” in the GREAT OUTDOORS to Camp to Avoid “TRAUMA” From White People Who Might Have Trump Flags
- NBC BLK reporter Char Adams penned an essay describing several black-led outdoor groups working to ‘provide safe spaces for black people’
- The report focused on creating ‘safe spaces’ so that black people can avoid ‘harassment’ and ‘trauma’ from white people at campsites
- Conservatives on Twitter criticized the report, accusing NBC of race-baiting
NBC News has been slammed online for a report about black people needing ‘safe spaces’ to enjoy outdoor activities.
NBC BLK reporter Char Adams described in a recently-revived June essay several black-led outdoor groups working to ‘provide safe spaces for black people to enjoy outdoor activities and dispel myths that the outdoors doesn’t belong to us.’
The report focused heavily on creating racially segregated ‘safe spaces’ so that black people can avoid ‘harassment’ and ‘trauma’ from white people who might fly ‘Trump flags’ at campsites.
Adams explained that the groups were founded to combat racism from the Jim Crow Era barring African Americans from National Parks, and current stereotypes that black people do not enjoy outdoor activities.
Many on Twitter criticized the report after NBC News re-shared it on Tuesday, saying the media outlet was race-baiting.
On Wednesday, defense attorney Marina Medvin joked that the outdoors were now ‘racist,’ and Seattle-based radio host Jason Rant slammed the article as a ‘parody.’
‘NBC News is now Teen Vogue, which became The New Republic,’ he tweeted. ‘They’re just a parody, not a news organization.’
Kentucky State University Political Science Professor Wilfred Reilly even went as far as to say the article was an ‘unbearable’ example of ‘upper-class left-wing neuroticism and fake race/gender grievance’ from the media.
‘It brings us headlines like “It’s Summer: Is it All Right to Leave the House?’ he joked.
NewsNation reporter Zaid Jilani also hit out at the news outlet for suggesting black people were living in a horror film.
‘Does a week go by without an article from a once-reputable news organization suggesting minorities live in an endless M. Night Shyamalan movie where our entire lives are spent hiding from this or that?’
