Coalition: Park Ranger Uniforms ‘Threatening’ Latinos


A coalition of legislators and civil rights groups say the National Park Service needs to focus on increasing inclusion on public lands, including possibly changing the “threatening” uniforms of Park Rangers.
“What we’re calling for is drastic, very scary change,” Maite Arce of the Hispanic Access Foundation said at a press conference Thursday.
“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.”

Maybe if they were not in the country illegally?


Threatening uniforms.

Sure. PARK ranger threatening uniforms.

Here’s what would be threatening: Rangers without uniforms. Meaning, any pedophile or rapist or thief could walk up and say “I’m a Park Ranger.” THAT would be threatening.

Of course, visible authority is threatening to lawbreakers and fugitives. That’s not a good reason to not have visible authority. It’s a good reason not to have lawbreakers and fugitives about.

We could, of course, try a different type of uniform - like the Ton-Ton Macoutes had.

Mirror sunglasses.
