City officials commit to removing 'racist' trees from golf course in Palm Springs

so fences and trees are racist?

Quote:
A longtime symbol of segregation that has stood alongside a golf course since the 1960s will soon meet its end in one California town.

Decades ago, a large grove of tamarisk trees was planted on the border between Tahquitz Creek Golf Course and a historically black neighborhood, along with a chain link fence. But at an informal city meeting this week, officials promised residents that the trees and the fence would be removed.

According to USA Today, the residents of the bordering neighborhood "said the invasive tamarisks, which block views of the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course and San Jacinto mountains, have artificially depressed property values and prevented black families from accumulating wealth in their property over the past half century."

Mayor Robert Moon and council member J.R. Roberts apologized to the local residents for the actions of prior city officials and promised it would no longer be an issue for future generations.

“You asked why it took us this long,” Roberts said at the meeting. “I can’t answer that. But guess what? We’re here now.”

They are not racisit, they are just really proud of their treeishness.....

Wait, these "trees" are native to Eurasia and Africa, so they're undocumented trees.

Does that mean they're trying to deport these trees?

Clearly "tamarisk trees" are a sign of oppression. Any planting of those trees in the future will be considered a racist act. Any tamarisk trees that are currently on property that are not immediately cut down will be considered a hate crime. Anyone that doesn't speak out vehemently and wildly against tamarisk trees will be considered a racist. Just speaking the words tamarisk trees is a racist act.

You have been warned.

The outrage police are watching.
