(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) President Joe Biden’s administration has once more created a “racist” policy, this time constructing electric vehicle charging stations in mostly affluent, white neighborhoods across America.
The United States government has set aside $7.5 billion dollars for the construction of the planned 500,000 charging stations to help boost the consumption of electric vehicles, the Guardian reported.
But after seeing the plan, the Indiana chapter of the far-Left National Association for the Advancement of Colored People argued that it doesn’t properly focus on helping black people make money.
Specifically, the NAACP claimed that not enough blacks were consulted in the drafting of the plan, and that there are no quotas for installing the stations near a quota of black businesses.
Unsurprisingly, Denise Abdul-Rahman, the Indiana state chair for the NAACP’s environmental justice program, said that the entire system has been constructed to oppress blacks.
“We think the process is flawed and rigged against Black communities, Black businesses and other frontline communities of color,” she said. “There’s been no real outreach here.”
It is a natural right, according to Abdul-Rahman, to not live near fossil fuel-burning cars.
“We want the economic benefits of these chargers too, the modernized grids so we don’t have so many power outages, to get our school buses off diesel,” she said.
“We don’t want two Indianas and two Americas, one with roundabouts and clean air and charging stations and another riding around in fossil fuel cars and breathing in all the pollution. We want a just transition.”
Rhiana Gunn-Wright, director of climate policy at the Roosevelt Institute and an designer of the Green New Deal, also commented on the plan.
“Often, communities of color aren’t consulted until the latter stages where they are put into a situation where they are seen as enemies of progress, stalling things that need to happen,” she said.
The Indiana NAACP is on the same page as former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Last year, the notorious homosexual claimed that the roads of America are racist.
“I’m still surprised,” he said, “that some people were surprised when I pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of dividing a white and a black neighborhood or if an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly black and Puerto Rican kids to a beach … was designed too low for it to pass by, that that obviously reflects racism that went into those design choices.”
