Yeah, well. The study is about people in the US.
Racial–ethnic disparities in pollution exposure and in consumption of goods and services in the United States are well documented. Some may find it intuitive that, on average, black and Hispanic minorities bear a disproportionate burden from the air pollution caused mainly by non-Hispanic whites, but this effect has not previously been directly established, let alone quantified
Sorry... I didn't realize that pollution only existed in the US.
Is that the continental US?
So this doesn't apply to you?
I suppose that's why they are called the majority. What's your point?
come on, you know full well caucasions are 74% of the population in the USA.
Have you read it? What do you specifically take issue with?
This study is a sham and you know it.

So lower income areas have more pollution than higher income areas....
Somebody actually had to do a study to figure that out?
Wealthy may be in a bigger house, but I'd venture that house is more energy efficient. May drive a nicer car, but I'd venture that late model car is more efficient than an older vehicle. Probably eat less fast food too, so not contributing that way...
