White People Pollute, Minorities Hardest Hit

RUSH: Since we’re talking about wacko things, try this. USA Today yesterday. “Pollution From White People Disproportionately Affects Blacks, Hispanics.” You didn’t hear about this, either? Well, it’s a good thing I came back from vacation. Look at all the things you people miss. This is USA Today. This is not some fringe, wacko penny saver type publication.

“While the air pollution in the U.S. has gotten cleaner –” Wait. It has? Well, if that’s true, then our contribution to climate change has gotta be going down. Okay. From the beginning. “While the air pollution the U.S. has gotten cleaner in the past decade, pollution inequity has remained high. The air that Americans breathe is not 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.”

This is absurd! This is what liberalism gives us! This is what the Drive-By Media reports. I guess by this token, yeah, Mexico would have to be one of the cleanest places on earth. No litter, no pollution, no inequities whatsoever. The air that Americans breathe isn’t equal. Pollution is disproportionately caused by whites, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic communities. “These findings confirm what most grassroots environmental justice leaders have known for decades.” What is an environmental justice leader? What is environmental justice? These are just code words for community organizing leftists.
