Racist trees will not be tolerated by the bureauweenies running Palm Springs, California, who righteously proclaim that as soon as they find the money to do it, they will remove a row of tamarisk trees that serve as a barrier between the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course and a historically black neighborhood:
Many longtime residents of the neighborhood previously told the (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun they believed the trees were planted for racist reasons in the 1960s, and remained a lasting remnant of the history of segregation in the city.
Removing the racist trees will cost at least $169,000.
But don’t the residents also benefit from the barrier? They don’t want golf balls flying through their windows, do they?
Never mind; the angry blacks have thought of that:
Residents, led by real estate agent Trae Daniel, who moved into the neighborhood 14 years ago, have made four demands of the city. They include: removing the trees; building a 6-foot privacy wall for residents who want it; installing netting or something similar to prevent errant golf balls from flying into residents’ yards; and planting new trees similar to those seen along other parts of the course.
Looks like this is going to cost taxpayers more than $169,000. But it will be worth every penny to combat the microaggressive menace posed by racist trees.
