BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – A NBC report claiming that Black people needed “safe spaces” to enjoy the great outdoors was heavily mocked on Twitter.
NBC BLK reporter Char Adams described several Black-led outdoor groups working to “provide safe spaces for Black people to enjoy outdoor activities and dispel myths that the outdoors doesn’t belong to us” in her report. She explained these groups were founded to combat racism from the Jim Crow Era barring African Americans from National Parks and stereotypes that Black people did not enjoy outdoor activities.
However during a commercial break, Adams had a different take. According to a cameraman, she said black-on-black crime has gotten so bad, that the safe spaces for black people in the great outdoors, is to be far away from other black people.
