If the left feels reparations are needed (I don't), I suggest the left start giving now.  BTW, the people that needed reparations are all dead now as well as those that should be giving (for your information).

The Proof is all around you but for some reason you refuse to look at it & accept what you see



You think this Air Pollution Story is Funny - it's not



Where do the Poorest People Live?



What is the Race of the Poorest who Live in the Most Polluted Areas



In the least desirable areas - whether they be in slums next to major highways or next to major polluters like Dumps - Electricity Generating Plants powered by Coal - Chemical Plants - Etc



Where do the most Affluent Live - in & on the most valuable property - farthest away from the polluters



What do the most affluent have in their homes - Water Putification - Air Purifiers - etc



All one has to do - to really understand the disparity



It to look at this most recent College Education Travesty



Ok some might be able to accept that a Parent used their Money & Influence to get their Child into a Presitigious School



Here is the Killer for a Life Long Working Middle Class American Stiff & US Veteran Like Me



After they used their MONEY as a powerful tool to Corrupt the College Education System



These same Rich People TOOK A TAX DEDUCTION on the Money they used as a Bribes



SO CHEATING THE SYSTEM ONCE & TAKING A UNFAIR ADVANTAGE WASN'T ENOUGH



THEY JUST KEPT GOING AND CHEATED THE US TAX PAYERS AND THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS AGAIN

==============================================================

Like I said "Yet another one that is trying to fuel the race issue in our country."

And people like Mick are exacerbating that problem.... just read his rant.

One would logically expect the whites to create more "pollution" than blacks since whites outnumber blacks by almost 6 times! Don't expect logic from the left.

The air that Americans breathe isn't equal.

Blacks and Hispanics disproportionately breathe air that's been polluted by non-Hispanic whites, according to a study. This new research quantifies for the first time the racial gap between who causes air pollution – and who breathes it. 

"Pollution is disproportionately caused by whites, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic minorities," the study said.

Poor air quality remains the largest environmental health risk in the United States, the study warns. In fact, with 100,000 deaths per year, more Americans die from air pollution than car crashes and murders combined.

“Even though minorities are contributing less to the overall problem of air pollution, they are affected by it more,” said study co-author Jason Hill, an engineering professor at the University of Minnesota, who is white. “Is it fair (that) I create more pollution and somebody else is disproportionately affected by it?” 

Hill said that while the air in the U.S. has gotten cleaner in the past decade, pollution inequity has remained stubbornly high.

"What is especially surprising is just how large pollution inequity is and has been for well over a decade," Hill said.
