Water Crisis in Flint, Environmental and Racism is NATIONAL

I’m going to do something different here… I’m going to use photos instead of words to share the reality of environmental racism. Toxic waste dumps, 1 of 5, coming up in the next video; that and a police brutality one hopefully sooner, but for sure within 2-3 days.


As I say in the video, this is and has been, and CONTINUES to be a NATIONAL problem within mainly Black communities. So here are a few photos….
First, notice below these two photos… The kids living in South Central, LA, have only a THIRD of the lung capacity compared to kids who live only 29 minutes away in Santa Monica, LA.
Why?… Think about it…
