White people, regardless of the MSM suggestions, are usually not racist or bigoted in any way. This may come as a shock to some, but Black Lives Matter and groups similar to them spend a lot of time marching and protesting over problems which exist only within their own skulls. So, since no one is really acting or saying anything wrong, those who look to be offended will imply that white people may think something in order to create that narrative needed.
For instance, no one suggested that a statue of a gorilla in a park themed after a zoo was anything but a gorilla. Community Park playground in Corsicana was simply a place to unwind, yet as CBS DFW reports, the city removed the artwork because someone decided that it was racist. Somehow, a piece of art is considered “racially insensitive” to certain people in Texas.
Due to the fallout, “Corsicana city council member Jeff Smith posted to Facebook” that when the weather allows, the gorilla work will be put back into his cage, but that does not erase the assumptions that led to this whole fiasco.
A spokesman for the city has said that “community members found the gorilla offensive – racially insensitive — in some form,” and wanted it to be taken away. How, why, or from what source the supposed offense happened is not even addressed since it likely never happened.
What is to be “understood?” That the eternally offended thought that someone may think that gorilla somehow looked like a person of color? Have we reached a point now where we are acting on what someone might say?
Calls came in from people complaining, even though the work has not only been in place for a very long time but was popular with a lot of kids (regardless of race) in the area as they visited the park.
Now that the faux animal is gone, those in the community are angered and want it back. One protester has said that he will sit in the cage until the city brings back the gorilla, refusing to move (though this may have changed in light of the city promising to return the popular attraction).
“It was a little strange, a little random, very unexpected,” said one protester while speaking to CBS 11.
A website called “In Memory Of Dobby” has even gone up as it seems that the overall community is wise enough to not find racism where there simply is none.
If there is good news to be found, at least that is true. If more communities would call out this kind of monkey business when it arises, the country would be a lot better off.
