‘Muir Woods’ to be renamed ‘Eldridge Cleaver Woods’ after Black Panther founder

June 10, 1933, the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt forced Japanese Americans into concentration camps, is a day that should live in infamy.

Wait. Sorry. Wrong oppression.

June 10, 1933, was the day Roosevelt took all the best Native American land our racist nation had stolen and converted it into the National Park System.

FDR must be cancelled, but he’s not alone. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has to go, too. In a six-part series called “America’s Best Idea,” Burns celebrated the racist oppression of the land and said it reminded us of “the full meaning of democracy.”

And the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) must be cancelled for failing to cancel its lesson plan that asks vulnerable students to think about the National Parks without the lens of racist oppression.

Not only that, but John Muir, the “father of our national parks,” must also be cancelled for his “derogatory comments about Black people and Indigenous peoples that drew on deeply harmful racist stereotypes.”

Thankfully, this is 2020. We know that people of color don’t visit oppressive National Parks often enough, and if we don’t address this problem “then we’re going to risk losing everything.”

Wait. More people of color must be forced to visit monuments to racist oppression AND we can’t rename Muir Woods for Eldridge Cleaver because he became a born-again Republican?

Never mind.
