Why Air Pollution Is A Racial Issue — Think Progress
A study produced by the University of Minnesota concluded that race is a determining factor in who is most affected by air pollution. Specifically, non-white people breathe air that is substantially more polluted than the air that white people breathe.
According to Julian Marshall, who led the University’s research, race outweighed income in regards to who is most affected by poor air quality. When low-income white people were compared to high-income Hispanic people, the latter group experienced higher levels of nitrogen dioxide. Altogether, people of color in the U.S. breath air with 38 percent more nitrogen dioxide in it than their white counterparts, particularly due to power plants and exhaust from vehicles.
“We were quite surprised to find such a large disparity between whites and nonwhites related to air pollution,” Marshall told the Minnesota Post. “Especially the fact that this difference is throughout the U.S., even in cities and states in the Midwest.”

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –”
Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely afraid of it. No question about it, because there’s no tolerance in Sharia law. It persecutes those that do not believe in Islam.”
“And I would say to Muslims in this country, if they want to practice Sharia law, go back to where you came from, to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Graham. “But we have our own laws here.”
Like all elitist libs, her ego is so massive it would never allow her to admit she was wrong.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) repeats her false claims of Native American ancestry in her new book, A Fighting Chance, which is scheduled for release next Tuesday.
“As a kid, I had learned about my Native American background the same way every kid learns about who they are: from family,” Senator Warren writes in an excerpt published Wednesday in the Boston Globe.
Senator Warren then repeats a line she used often in her 2012 Senate campaign, memorialized in a September 2012 television commercial, writing “I never questioned my family’s stories or asked my parents for proof or documentation. What kid would?”
“Knowing who you are is one thing, and proving who you are is another,” Warren writes.
For once I agree with Carney.
JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama had in the election year was with the anchor of The Daily Show.
I can’t see why anyone would have a problem with this.

As if many Americans needed another reason to dislike the post office, word now comes that it wants to begin mining and selling private data gathered from the personal mail of Americans.
USPS chief marketing and sales officer Nagisa Manabe recently told the PostalVision 2020 conference that the post office is “actively looking for ways to build new business lines around what not long ago might have been considered science fiction.”
While some of Manabe’s ideas included new delivery systems and partnerships, one idea stands out as troubling: selling data collected from observations of personal mail – sent and received – by potential every person across the country.
He described a scenario in which a woman test drives two different types of cars at two different dealerships while trying to decide which to buy:
“We’re at the point where, all too soon… We’re going to know exactly that she was shopping at two different car dealers looking at cars, and both of those car dealers should be mailing her communication about that vehicle, right? And we’re there now, folks. I mean, you all know this.”

Hours after the death of Karpal Singh, Muslims were told by the National Fatwa Council today they were not encouraged to use the phrase “Rest in Peace” (RIP) to a non-Muslim because the term had Christian connotations.
In a statement issued on its website, www.e-fatwa.gov.my, the National Fatwa Council said Muslims could express their condolences to non-Muslim families.
“Condolences can be expressed to a non-Muslim family as long as there are no religious implications,” it said.
“Wishes such as ‘I sympathise with what has happened to you’ or ‘we express our sadness at the loss in your family’ are allowed.
“However, a Muslim is definitely not encouraged to wish a non-Muslim person ‘Rest in Peace’,” the council said.
The council said RIP was an assumption that the non-Muslim person would receive God’s blessings.
“It is similar to the Latin prayer of ‘May his soul and the souls of all the departed faithful by God’s mercy rest in peace’.”
Oh noes, you’re in trouble now, Putin!

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the U.S. will send more non-lethal military aid to Ukraine, as fighting with pro-Russian factions intensifies in the eastern part of the country.
Hagel, speaking at a press conference at the Pentagon with his Polish counterpart, said the approved aid would include medical supplies, helmets, sleeping mats, water purification units and small power generators.
The announcement follows a report earlier this week that the administration was withholding non-lethal military aid sought by the Ukrainian government, including body armor and night-vision goggles. The aid announced Thursday may stop short of all the items on Ukraine’s wishlist.
The Obama administration is weighing how deeply to get involved in the conflict in eastern Ukraine, just weeks after Russia’s government annexed the disputed Crimean Peninsula. President Obama, in an interview with CBS News, warned there would be “consequences” for Russia’s aggression but claimed Vladimir Putin is not interested in a military confrontation.
In response the supposedly pro-union MMFA hired a law firm that specializes in defending employers from unions.
Via Labor Union Report:
Over the years, the Left-wing Media Matters has taken it upon itself to criticize the “Right” for its opposition to unions’ attempt to effectively eliminate workers’ right to secret-ballot elections on whether or not to unionize.
Due to its apparent penchant to having employers unionized based on “card check,” it would seem that Media Matters’ CEO David Brock would be against forcing his workers to go through the arduous process of actually voting for the Service Employees International Union, rather than merely accepting the SEIU without an election.
Nevertheless, despite Media Matters’ prior defense of the SEIU. it appears that Brock & Co. are not voluntarily recognizing the union based on card check.
On April 10th, the SEIU filed an election with the Baltimore region of the National Labor Relations Board to have an election for 50 employees working for the George Soros-funded media “monitor.”
According to the National Labor Relations Board’s website, Media Matters has hired the high-priced, management-side law firm of Perkins Coie.

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?
Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.”
Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms.
Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.”
Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms.
This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments to live after the Times’ victim du jour decided he wanted to murder an 8-year-old infidel.
Does every trust-funded, pony-tailed male Marxist writer in this country have a crush on the “tousle-haired” youth? Rolling Stone, the Globe, now the Times — they start writing about this guy and suddenly they sound like heartsick teenage girls.
This isn’t journalism, it’s mash notes. If these Tiger Beat-like stories were Top 40 songs, they’d have to bring back Leslie Gore to sing them.
It’s My Fatwa and I’ll Cry if I Want to.
Do you suppose Jann Wenner, who got the whole thing going with his infamous Rolling Stone cover, realizes that if the Joker and his pals ever succeed in establishing sharia law, he and his “partner” Matt Nye won’t be together very long? Yet they swoon over this mass murderer who would cut their heads off in a Riyadh minute. This is beyond Stockholm Syndrome, this is the Kabul Conundrum.
Last year, the Boston Globe told us that his late 26-year-old brother, whom the Joker killed when he ran over him in a stolen SUV, was a “stay at-home dad.” Yes, that and the prime suspect in the murder of seven infidels.
The Times even lifted the Globe’s golly-gee description of the bloodthirsty foreigners as “homegrown.” Really? When you go to the produce stand and you read “homegrown,” above, say, the vine-ripened tomatoes, do you assume they’re from … Dagestan, or Chechnya?
That’s the Third World hellhole these monsters came from, to go on welfare here in the Great Satan.

If she was yelled at for carrying a Koran CAIR would be feigning outrage and the school would be holding “tolerance” meetings.
(KMOV.com) – The mother of a Potosi High School student said a teacher went too far when her daughter was reprimanded for carrying a Bible around school.
Angela English says her daughter, Kiela, called her from school saying a teacher yelled at her for carrying a bible and discussing religion with a classmate.
Her daughter wasn’t punished, but she says it’s clear even talking about the bible in the hallways of the high school isn’t acceptable.
Angela started using Facebook to plan a bible protest for students to stand up for their religious rights at school on Thursday.
“We’ve asked the children to bring the bibles and carry it, not preach and shove religion in their face but to show they have the right to carry the bible,” said Angela English.
News 4 has tried contacting the Potosi School District for comment, but have not heard back.
I can think of lots of words to describe Obama, “courageous” is absolutely not one of them.
Another idiot who makes his living by playing the race card.
Update to this story.
Via Washington Post:
Baseball great Hank Aaron is catching hell for telling the truth. Actually, the Hall of Famer is catching hell from racists because he had the temerity to point out that racism still exists. Those who think otherwise are delusional and willfully ignorant of the racial state of play in the United States.
Aaron’s alleged offense occurred in a USA Today interview with sports reporter Bob Nightengale. Aaron explained why he still has the racist hate mail he received as he closed in on breaking Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record. [...]
The frustrations are many, but Obama spending years having his citizenship questioned by birthers stands out. It was a lie with racist underpinnings that flourished in the silence of a Republican Party all too eager to ride the wave of base enthusiasm it created. Don’t forget that before his implosion, Donald Trump was an early frontrunner for the 2012 presidential nomination thanks to his ugly embrace of the birther lie.
Facts be damned, CAIR will still play the victim card.
