I have gone camping and the people have been either generally friendly or very standoffish. I just don't trust White people enough to put my life in danger like that. I don't want to be a victim of some accidental shooting because scary White folks and hunting White folks believe if it's brown it must lay down.

If I never have camping experiences like those I'm fine. I know the realities I live in, I understand how White people think, and I have common sense. Scared people, stupid people, and racist people will kill you. This informs my desire to camp.
