What the hell??? Sorry, Latinos, you don’t like the uniforms, you can hop back over the border and enjoy the uniforms of the cartels & Mexican police. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out. We’ll be sure to lock it once you’re through.
The sad thing about all of this is Obama will probably cave to their demands. Future Democratic voters, you know. Idiots.
Hispanics are “threatened” by the color of National Park Ranger attire which bears resemblance to uniforms worn by US Border Patrol agents, a coalition of Latino activists and civil rights groups argued last week.
Asking President Obama for an Executive Order to address the “priorities for a more inclusive approach to conservation of our public land,” the Hispanic Access Foundation Thursday recommended re-examining the “cultural implications of existing agency uniforms, offices, signage, and other facilities.”
“The face of America is rapidly changing; yet our public lands do not reflect this demographic and ethnic diversity,” a press release from the Foundation stated.
“What we’re calling for is drastic, very scary change,” president of the Hispanic Access Foundation Maite Arce admitted at a press conference.
“One example I can give you is with the Latino community, especially among the border states, but even nationwide, just the simple color of the uniforms that rangers wear,” Arce said.
“It’s such a shame that something as simple as the uniform and its similarity to the border patrols’ uniform – in the coloring – could be very threatening to certain segments of the Latino population. So a discussion about that is going to be really tough.”
An outline of the group’s recommended proposals mentions “The recent anti-immigration sentiment has… negatively impacted Latino’s [sic] access to public lands.”
The group further asked the president to consider changing names of sites which may connotate a “cultural bias.”
“Review names of sites throughout system for cultural bias. Some may require comprehensive name changes to reflect a broader and more inclusive history.”
