Smells Like Environmental Racism


Smells Like Environmental Racism

Valerie Vande Panne

Sandra Turner-Handy discusses the incinerator's role in Detroit's air pollution problem.


Racism? Yes. Classism, too. Powerism, most definitely. I shudder to think how many technical “professionals” it took to bring this monster to “life”. Their licenses should be revoked each and every one. Much like the lead-laden water in Flint, there is “professional” complicity. Ethics are dead, and we have killed them. (Apologies to Nietzsche.)
