    Calling "Climare Change" racist is just a silly emotional reaction. It is just a continuing side effect of who had the technology versus who didn't for the last 200 years.

    So people of color not learning technology, and I mean getting the books while ignoring most of the dumb White teachers, is totally ridiculous.

    Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics (2006) by Stan Gibilisco
    http://www.electronics-tutorials.com/book-reviews/teach-yourself-electricity-and-electronics.htm

    People that can program but don't understand electricity do not comprehend computers. Do Black lives matter to Black people who won't learn science and technology? If all of the Whites disappeared could Black Americans keep the electricity running? Without intellectual segregation from the White morons we can forget solving our problems.

    um

    Wrong ... No one has called Climate Change racist, to do so would be absurd.

    Even the titles of the articles don't make that claim, must less the contents:


    Black Lives Matter are right to say climate change is a race issue


    YES, CLIMATE CHANGE DOES KILL PEOPLE OF COLOR MORE


    The first title points out that climate change is a race issue, not racist. The second title states, as a matter of fact, which people group suffers the most death resulting from climate change.

    Moreover, most Republicans don't believe the climate is changing and are failing to act responsibly.

    Throughout the video, the claim is, climate crisis is a racist crisis, the title of the video says:


    'Climate change is a racist crisis' Black Lives Matter appeal Daily Mail Online

    This explains why its a race issue. Again, no one called it, as you put it that climate change, itself, is racist.


    "Calling "Climare Change" racist is just a silly emotional reaction."


    This crisis affects our people, if you are Black, and is being taken much more seriously than your casual approach of viewing it as just a side effect, its way more than a silly emotional reaction:


    "Calling "Climare Change" racist is just a silly emotional reaction. It is just a continuing side effect of who had the technology versus who didn't for the last 200 years."

    I am not selling anything. What does using the word "racist" have to do with doing anything about it? Putting crisis after it doesn't affect anything.

    um

    True, nothing that I'm buying, umbrarchist. If the shoe was on the other foot, meaning, White folk were dying from climate change, the response would be entirely different than it is currently, perhaps, and not considered racist, at all.

    Well, understandably for you, placing crisis afterwards, doesn't affect anything, but for many, many others, it has significant value.

    Donald Trump is betting against all odds on climate change

    ... But I fear he won’t shrink from the actions he has promised on climate change: withdrawing the United States from the Paris accord, ending President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and okaying every new fossil-fuel plan from the Keystone XL pipeline on down. He won’t back down because those are hard-to-hedge choices and because he’s surrounded by climate-change deniers and fossil-fuel insiders who will try to ensure that he keeps his word ...

    It would be the riskiest wager any president has ever made about anything.

    Trump’s denial of catastrophic climate change is a clear danger

    ... Voters heard little about climate change in the endless election campaign. The contrast between the two candidates was night and day, with Hillary Clinton promising to expand on Obama’s climate initiatives and Trump vowing to repeal them. Yet not one question was posed about climate change in the presidential debates. The media gave more airtime to the size of Trump’s hands than to the scope of his climate delusion ...

    His vow to reverse Obama’s progress is chilling.

    Not much to say. Climate change is real and there is plenty of empirical scientific evidence to support it. Never understood the deniers and their revulsion for evidence and facts....

    Climate change is a public health and a civil rights issue

    ... Here’s one important lesson: Climate change is a public health and a civil rights issue. In communities across the country, African-Americans and low-income families are often hit the hardest by climate change and carbon pollution ...

    Climate change is a public health and a civil rights issue

    President Donald Trump clearly needs a history lesson on African-Americans. His recent comments at a breakfast for Black History Month made that very clear.
