Obama EPA Chief McCarthy: Pollution Holds African-Americans Back [ How will amnesty reduce Carbon?]
breitbart.com ^ | April 29 2014 | W Hudson

Regina "Gina" McCarthy, President Obama's chief of the Environmental Protection Agency, has essentially called pollution a force of racism in the US, saying that pollution is "holding back millions of African-Americans."

McCarthy made even more strange comments at an April 24 appearance at Clark Atlanta University sponsored by the Hip Hop Caucus, a non-profit group that claims to "mobilize, educate, and engage young people... in elections, policymaking and service projects."

Sounds more like something a bottom-feeding politician would say than someone who is supposed to know something about science.

Rather than surrounding itself with the best and brightest, this administration is content to surround itself with people dumber than can be properly described in English.

Further proof that race-baiting politics have reached the height of radical farce. The hip hop caucus? Climate change as a racist hate crime?

I imagine that in a century or two school-children will be reading of late 20th and early 21st century racism hysteria and thinking of it as an inexplicable and insane as we think witch trials were.

Some one needs to tell the ass at 1600 that everything is not about race and that we are damn tired of hearing it all the time.

If millions of third worlders leave their village and end up driving vehicles in America I think the situation becomes worse from that point of view.

The question African Americans should be screaming at the democrats is "How is giving amnesty to a bunch of illegal aliens going to help advance African Americans?" But the so called leaders of Blacks don't give a rats @$$ because they've got their cash. The democrats don't need to pander to the Blacks anymore because they have bred decades of dependence into them.

I've grown immune to it. Everyone is a racist and everything is racist. Once you understand that, then the word loses all its power.

“... pollution is “holding back millions of African-Americans.”

Yep, it’s about time the tree huggers figured a way to play the race card. Notice how the enviro movement is so overwhelmingly lily White? Let’s get real, when was the last time a “brother” saved a whale? Or a “sista” expressed concerns about the supposedly melting ice caps? The 0’s? of course, only because he owes the Sierra Club, WWF, etc. big time. I’ve seen more diversity at a NASCAR race.

If all else fails, play the “Race Card” and the gutless will fall in line.

Pitiful, and wholly expected. Call the out on this at every turn and eventually it will become ineffective.

The government needs to eat its own cooking.

If a rule they impose causes energy prices to rise, the increase needs to come out of their own budget.

None of this "jam the tax gun in the peasants' faces" to fund their increased costs.

“Pollution Holds African-Americans Back”

Thanks, but we already knew this.

In fact, due to media vigilance, we know that EVERYTHING holds African-Americans back except their own poor decisions and self-destructive life choices.

Most power plants, incinerators, and garbage dumps are built near where the poor people live. In Washington, DC, the Capitol power plant has been burning coal which pollutes areas where poor people live and have higher than average rates of asthma. The plant has been able to burn natural gas which pollutes a lot less, but recent efforts may have finally succeeded in forcing them to switch from coal.

BS

Poor people have higher incidence of asthma because they spend so much of their childhood breathing climate controlled air.

Most of the poor (a nonsensical term in modern America) keep their children in doors as much as possible in their urban ghettos. Most of the poor have air conditioning so the windows stay shut.

With modern AC equipped with HEPA filters every bit of pollen, air born bacteria, mold spoor, and dust particle is filter out of the atmosphere they breathe. This ultra clean air means that the children from the earliest age are not exposed to contaminants that they would be if they spent a good part of their time outdoors.

So their immune systems not challenged by normal air contaminants from the earliest age their immune systems become ultra-sensitive to what should be normal exposure to typical air contaminants.

Everything is blamed on racism lately. I guess they’ve grown tired of blaming Bush.

Don’t forget the cigarette smoke that many of their parents are breathing in their apartments. Also, don’t forget the walks to and from school, and time on the playground.

Many schools have eliminated playground time. Many teachers do not want to do playground monitoring duty so they have come up with the notion that playground time takes away from preparing for college.

Most urban poor ride to school on Air Conditioned buses.
