AIR IS RACIST!
From USA Today
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.
False. Asia produces more pollution than Europe and America.
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 GUNZ???/ Better ban it.
“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?”
Could always just kys.
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.
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.
Oy fuckin' veh! Better go back to those nice, unpolluted shithole countries.
However, non-Hispanic whites experience a "pollution advantage," meaning they breathe about 17 percent less air pollution than whites cause.
That's fine. Kill White people anyway.
“On average, whites tend to consume more than minorities. It’s because of wealth,” Hill said.
For this study, the category "non-Hispanic whites" also includes Asian-Americans and Native Americans. This is based on the source that the researchers used: government data on personal expenditures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
No I'm offended.
Other experts agreed with the research: “These findings confirm what most grassroots environmental justice leaders have known for decades, ‘whites are dumping their pollution on poor people and people of color,’” said Texas Southern University public affairs professor Robert Bullard, who was not part of the research. Bullard, often called the father of environmental justice, is African-American.
"The approach we establish in this study could be extended to other pollutants, locations and groupings of people," Marshall said. "When it comes to determining who causes air pollution – and who breathes that pollution – this research is just the beginning."
Bet it will never apply to jews tho.
The study was published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The real pollution we create is our very existence. How DARE White children even breath the same air as the privileged potatoes and their jew overlords. How DARE White people even breath.
See this picture of a river in the Philippines? White people did that. Yeah. White people threw their trash right into that river every single day for the last 50 years.
Ugh and look at these evil White Ray-sist Natsees brazenly littering in a river in Belarus. These White Goyim cause too much pollution.
