No eggs for you! Rude & Aggressive black parents force an end to a Colorado Easter egg hunt tradition


COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - An annual Easter egg hunt attended by hundreds of children has been canceled because of misbehavior last year. Not by the kids, but by the grown-ups.

Too many African American parents determined to see their children get more eggs than the white kids jumped a rope marking the boundaries of the children-only hunt at Bancroft Park last year. The hunt was over in seconds, to the consternation of eggless tots and the rules-abiding parents.

Organizers say the hunt in Old Colorado City has gotten too big for the hundreds of children and parents now attending. They canceled this year.

Last April's egg hunt, sponsored by the Old Colorado City Association, experienced a few technical difficulties, said Mazie Baalman, owner of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and sponsor of the event.

There was no place to hide the plastic eggs, which were filled with donated candy or coupons redeemable at nearby businesses. So thousands of eggs were put in plain view on the grass. A bullhorn to start the event malfunctioned, so Baalman, master of ceremonies, used a public address system that was hard to hear.

"So everybody thinks you said `Go,' and everybody goes, and it's over in seconds," Baalman said. "If one parent gets in there, other parents say, `If one can get in, we all can get in,' and everybody goes."

Parenting observers cite the cancellation as a prime example of so-called "helicopter parents" - those who hover over their children and are involved in every aspect of their children's lives - to ensure that they don't fail, even at an Easter egg hunt.

"They couldn't resist getting over the rope to help their kids," said Ron Alsop, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and author of "The Trophy Kids Grow Up," which examines the "millennial children" generation.

"That's the perfect metaphor for millennial children. They (parents) can't stay out of their children's lives. They don't give their children enough chances to learn from hard knocks, mistakes."

Alsop and others say the parenting phenomenon began in earnest when baby boomers who decorated their cars with "Baby on Board" signs in the 1980s began having children. It has prompted at least two New York companies to establish "take your parent to work day" for new recruits as parents remain involved even after their children become adults.

Lenny Watkins, who lives a block away from Bancroft Park, took his friend's son, then 4, to the hunt in 2009. "I just remember having a wonderful time, him with his Easter basket," Watkins said, adding he can understand why a parent would step in.

"You have all these eggs just lying around, and parents helping out. You better believe I'm going to help my kid get one of those eggs. I promised my kid an Easter egg hunt, and I'd want to give him an even edge."

Jennifer Rexford, who used to live near the park, said she participated in public Easter egg hunts with her boys, ages 3, 8 and 14. She doesn't anymore, because of "pushy parents" that she said she has dealt with at the hunts.

"It just seems to be the mindset. People just want the best for their kids," Rexford said.

Alsop said that dynamic is at play with parents who hover over their children, even into adulthood.

"I don't see any sign of it abating," he said. "It seems everything is more and more and more competitive, fast paced, and I think parents are going to see they need to do more to help their kids get an edge."

This is why the word nigger was invented and why the parasites hate that word so much.

wow, what a surprise,

I'm guessing some blacks from some place like Shitcago,

that moved with their family to Colorado, for the scenery, and a new local to commit their crimes,

and with standard chip on shoulder, just had to make sure their kids had more eggs than the 'white' kids.


expect this horse shit to get a lot worse over the next 15 years.

Non whites age 2 and under are now the majority in the USA. in 15 years they will be the majority of the adult population nation wide.


Begin looking for your white safe haven now.

They should have taken a few of those eggs and instead of coupons redeemable at businesses they should of put in Job applications or some condoms, those items are like kryptonite to Niggers.

Hey Shaved, I looked up videos of that egg hunt and surprise surprise, it is 99% White people, mainly yuppie looking types. The parents are just wandering all over in the tiny field where the eggs are in plain view making it hard for the young ones to get to the eggs. That and one little White brat 9 year old girl with a basket overflowing with eggs so that others get none. Yup, time to cancel it for at least one year.

I know you're all for baiting....but your change to the article to say that it is African-American parents at fault is just wrong.

The original AP story does not say that at all....

Name one thing that fucking niggers don't ruin. The subhuman parasites destroy everything they come in contact with.

Shaved I see Aggressive helicopter parents getting blamed for the issue. Nowhere does the article out the color or race of particular parents. Lets not fall into the same trap as Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton. Theres enough racial tension without any extra help.

If these were actually white yuppies as opposed to inner city ghetto people, then I am not surprised. The yuppies tend to be the helicopter parents who are ruining their kids' childhoods while trying to live vicariously through their kids... in fact the ghetto folk more often do not even know where their kids are most of the time, nor do they seem to care..

Sorry Shaved,
As much as I wanted it to be Shaneequa, Tanika, Fe-Male and their multitude of offspring, the video showed it to be a bunch of yuppie, cracker helicopter moms.

Score one for the black man.

Use hand grenades painted as Easter Eggs and have Rev. Jesse duct taped in an Easter "Jungle" Bunny costume hopping around the hunt.

Ridiculous just how many people were willing to jump on the bandwagon that the problem was caused by all these african americans wanting their kids to have more eggs than the white kids without even looking at the video. What a bunch of sheep.
