Hard hitting reporting over at USA Today...this country is going to total shit.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/03/11/air-pollution-inequality-minorities-breathe-air-polluted-whites/3130783002/

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.

if the study reported this as wealthier people create more pollution and poor people suffer through it more, it would not be so wonky (and also conclude something probably pretty obvious already)

going through all the hoops and math and assumptions to do some kind of racial comparison seems pretty ridiculous and useless

You know you're grasping for straws to prove racism when you've resorted to coming up with this...

The study found that black and Hispanic Americans bear a "pollution burden:" Blacks are exposed to about 56 percent more pollution than is caused by their consumption. For Hispanics, it is slightly higher – 63 percent.

However, non-Hispanic whites experience a "pollution advantage," meaning they breathe about 17 percent less air pollution than whites cause.

The formula scientists used in their study is driven by disparities in the amount of goods and services that groups consume and in the exposure to the resulting pollution.

“On average, whites tend to consume more than minorities. It’s because of wealth,” Hill said.

For example, the scientists found that whites spend more money on pollution-intensive goods and services than do blacks and Hispanics, which means they generate more pollution than the other groups do.

But I do burnouts with black tires, and they make white smoke, the tire manufacturers are racist too, the sky is falling. How can they print shit like that and feel good about themselves.

8% of the country are the well off, liberal, progressive, socialist types.

They're trying to control the DEM party and control the country.

Call them the aristocrats because that's what they are. Instead of Dukes and Earls, America has celebrities, sports figures and billionaires. They basically get some similar privileges as the Dukes and Earls.
