The death of the mainstream media is one of the great underlying themes of the post-Obama era as every ‘news’ organization in the land has been exposed as fraudulent as made evident by their devotion to race-baiting and promoting conspiracy theories to take down a duly elected president.
With RussiaGate now on life support as the political left continues to lose faith in their savior Robert Mueller, the focus has swung back to fomenting racial unrest in a transparent effort to pander to those black voters who didn’t turn out in sufficient numbers for Hillary Clinton.
With socialism ascendant and the Democrat base determined to make racial and gender identity as the top requirement for their eventual nominee, the media is dutifully churning out propaganda to exploit growing racial divisions or in the words of Saul Alinsky, “to rub raw the sores of discontent” in order to gain political advantage.
In the latest example of how EVERYTHING is racist, America’s preeminent dumbed-down newspaper is making the ridiculous and bizarre claim that air pollution is racist towards minorities.
The air that Americans breathe isn't equal: Pollution from whites disproportionately affects blacks, Hispanics https://t.co/8K7L27jk4p

According to USA Today, “Study finds a race gap in air pollution — whites largely cause it; blacks and Hispanics breathe it”:
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.
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.
“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.
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.
Sadly, in this age of low standards, reliance on emotion and just plain stupidity, the target audience for this imbecilic drivel will never bother to consider that everybody breathes the same air and that the USA Today screed has no basis in reality.
Socialism, race and now junk science is what the Democrats plan to base their entire strategy on, will it work or are there still enough people in America who are able to see through the incessant propaganda that the fake news media has polluted million of minds.
