National Geographic Proclaims That Bird Watching Is Racist

Good thing the multiculti granola crunchers at National Geographic don’t have to pay taxes like the rest of us. That frees up resources so they can bring us important stories like the recent revelation that bird watching is racist:

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in 2011, 93 percent of American birders were white, 5 percent were Hispanic (which includes both blacks and whites), 4 percent were black, 1 percent were Asian American, and 2 percent were “other.”

Why does it matter that too many bird watchers are white? Because of global warming, of course:

[A]t a time when birds are facing unprecedented challenges to their existence from climate change … developing more diversity among birders will broaden support for measures needed to protect birds…

The reason race quotas have not been met in the realm of bird watching is that white people are racist and bad — except of course race-obsessed liberals, who are anti-racist and good:

In the past three years, a group of birders has pulled together to try to bring more minorities into their community, staging a series of conferences called Focus on Diversity: Changing the Face of American Birding.

The meetings have covered a range of reasons why minorities may find it hard to embrace birding, including concerns about how onlookers might react to seeing a black or Hispanic man with binoculars wandering the woods—or a suburban neighborhood—at dusk, dawn, or night. …

Conference speakers have also cited lingering fears about racism in the U.S.—like whether it’s safe to go to areas where the Ku Klux Klan had been strong, or where militias still thrive…

If this story is on the level, I give up trying to tell the difference between parody and reality where moonbats are concerned.

Searching for bird watchers of politically proper pigmentation.
