USA Today report claims the air Americans breathe is racist

According to insane leftists, everything is racist.  Literally.  On Monday, USA Todayreported that the very air Americans breathe is racist.  The report tells us that a study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America has determined that “…blacks and Hispanics disproportionately breathe air that’s been polluted by non-Hispanic whites…”

“This new research quantifies for the first time the racial gap between who causes air pollution – and who breathes it,” USA Today further said.

According to USA Today:

“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.

“Pollution inequity?”  Seriously?  Obviously, we need Congress to come up with a law forcing everyone to produce the same amount of pollution…

And of course, it’s all due to wealth.

“On average, whites tend to consume more than minorities. It’s because of wealth,” study co-author Jason Hill stated.

No doubt, an argument for income redistribution.

Reaction was pretty much what one might expect.

Sadly, it’s not…


Now there’s a solution that just might work…
