Our racist climate

Blogger LaShawn Barber has a great column on the efforts of some to racialize climate change. Why, you may ask, would that be their goal?:

With no Klansman to defend against or whites-only signs to tear down, certain blacks are consumed with searching for racism in a single glance or an innocuous comment or on a magazine cover or under rocks.

That’s a good description of what it’s been like to live in Durham for 25 years.
