No one should have private property rights on any public lands. We should protect public lands and we should make public lands more available for recreation to the public, as long as environmental protections are in place and enforced. No person, company or entity should have rights to minerals or natural resources beneath the ground or in the water, air or land of public lands. Just like many Conservatives say that black people do not have rights to be compensated because of their great grand parent’s slavery, the individuals or entities that claim they have rights to minerals and resources with public lands, lost those rights when their great grand parents passed away and the lands were made public. If they are claiming to be compensated for these so-called rights, then black descendants have more rights to be compensated for their family’s slavery and unjustified incarceration, hangings, murders, rapings, etc.
