Blacks apparently feel uncomfortable at the neglected garbage dumps called parks:
"US parks seek a more diverse audience" Associated Press March 31, 2015
WASHINGTON — After nearly 100 years, the National Park Service holds some of the country’s most beautiful and historic places, but it suffers from an $11 billion backlog of unfunded maintenance and a visitor base that’s aging and mostly white.
Where did all the money go, and who stole it?
With its centennial approaching in 2016, the park service is launching a campaign Thursday to raise support and court a younger, more diverse visitor base. First lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush will cochair the campaign, calling on Americans to ‘‘Find Your Park.’’
I'm SO SICK of IMAGERY and ILLUSION from these sickening elites of the political cla$$.
Sustaining the parks and keeping them relevant to visitors far into the future is a challenge, park officials said. Many facilities date back 50 years or more and are in danger of failing, such as a 70-year-old water pipeline at the Grand Canyon that breaks regularly and could cut off the water supply to the site, said Jonathan Jarvis, director of the National Park Service.
"Look, we are really sorry about the blackouts. Hey, it hit the White House, too, so don't complain to me! And we are sorry about the water main break that flooded the subway in New York, but look on the good side; it probably drowned all those rats and homeless people. And yes, the decay of the water systems out west is a huge part of the reason California is going back to desert, and I know you are all complaining about the high taxes and wondering why that money is not being spent on this nation's infrastructure. But government is choosing. Government is prioritizing, and right now the priorities we have are propping up Wall Street, truckloads of cash and weapons for Israel, and paying for all these wars across the globe, and you Americans better stop whining and complaining and get with the program, dammit!" -- whatreallyhappened.com
Nothing in the Globe about the water main breaks in NYC, and all I got what this piece of crap on the power outage.
Behind the scenes, officials are seeking to expand fund-raising through the National Park Foundation and bolster congressional support to improve the parks.
This is the third major campaign in the national parks’ history. An outcry over deplorable park conditions in 1915 originally led to the creation of the National Park Service.
