An interesting read on the Burning Man and diversity via Clutch magazine.
Personally, I do not think it is about if black people like to camp or not, but the lack of information about said events. There are a lot of interesting events that the quoted “average” person may never heard of; that does not mean that there is a lack of interest. Just because a group of people around you are not interested in what you are does not mean that there isn’t an interest with others. It’s called “finding your tribe/group/people, etc…”
When I was introduced about this gathering, I was excited and wanted to go and am planning to attend sometime. Because everyone and everything about it is interesting. And it is a haven of nerds or more accurate: people passionate about life, things, ideas, etc.
Also, can we please stop placing “black people” or “African-Americans” in a monolithic cultural group? Technically, the term “African-American” in my view is to be applied to all persons of African and/or the Diaspora who lives and/or is born in the Americans…which includes, the Caribbean all of North America and South America. Therefore, there is a lot of different cultures within, always has been and always will be.
