In the twisted worldview of “progressives,” everything is racist:

The EPA chief, who was appointed by Obama in July of last year, claimed that black students are the “most vulnerable to climate change” and they should become “champion climate justice advocates.”

Turning pollution into an excuse to throw the race card, McCarthy claimed that stopping pollution is all about “equity” and that minorities have been “overburdened by pollution and environmental health hazards for far too long.”

The environmental official went on to claim that Obama was going to institute “environmental justice” for minorities.

“You can’t ensure environmental justice, and we can’t deliver on this president’s promise of opportunity for all without giving people clean air and clean water and clean land to live on,” she said.

“Pollution is holding back millions of African-Americans fighting for middle class security,” McCarthy said. “Environmental justice is social justice.”

No word on whether pollution is also homophobic and part of the war on women.
