Let’s Make 2016 the Year of Justice: A Call for Environmental Justice Milestones

Robert Bullard

In 2014, the nation commemorated some important milestones in our historic march toward justice and equality for all Americans. We marked the 60th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education U.S. Supreme Court decision (May 17, 1954), 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 signed by President Lyndon B.

From the article:

"It is ironic that Mossville and Turkey Creek founders survived slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction and Jim Crow segregation but their descendants today may not survive the assaults of toxic racism. It’s time to stand with Mossville, Turkey Creek and other endangered communities. Black health, Black communities and Black lives matter."

This is a worldwide catastrophe. Of all the candidates running (barring Jill Stein who has all the right positions, but no chance in the current system), Bernie Sanders is most apt to connect the dots between racism and environmental ruin (by corporate design), and institute some regulatory policies equipped with muscular back-up.
