    They do have a point. If we bulldoze the national parks and turn them into cropland we can grow more food.

    And it isn't like those national park animals are doing us any good. You can't shoot them and put them on the dinner table.

    Might as well graze cattle on the same acreage. We can eat them.

    But the big/ real issue mentioned in the clips is that the said 50ft trees block out mountain views and depress house prices. I think this is the issue more than the actual trees being racist someone just jumped on the bandwagon for that one. Its about $s not skin colour.

    What animals live in the forests you are going to pull down and I will tell you if they are ok to eat them.

    I do not think that anyone is calling the trees racist. Only the decision to plant them along that stretch of the boundary of the golf course at that time (ground was broken on the golf course in 1958, and the neighbouring housing estate for black residents pre-existed this for a few years because of laws banning blacks from living in the nearby city of Palm Springs) and nowhere else along it. Also, the trees are unpleasant and have negative effects on the nearby ground, and are uncharacteristic of the trees used elsewhere on the golf course and devalue the properties in the area. Of course it was because of racialism that a such a boundary was placed there, then.

    Indeed. Speaking as a middle age white American man who is obviously a racist by definition let me issue a blanket apology for every bad thing that's ever happened, ever.

    No more racism. From now on nothing but animal cruelty

    Lots of claims in the above that appear to be opinion.

    Perhaps the trees were planted to stop golf balls from hitting the homes.

    It must be like an open borders logic by taking down barriers. o_O
