Rashida Tlaib: ‘Environmental Racism’ to Blame for Pollution in Detroit

'Environmental racism is what this is, and it should be called out that way'

Tlaib made the remarks on the back of an article by The Guardian calling Detroit "the blackest city in the US."

Socialist Rep and 'Squad' member Rashida Tlaib blamed "environmental racism" for the pollution in Detroit, Michigan.

The Michigan Democrat made the bizarre claims on Twitter:

"Environmental racism is what this is, and it should be called out that way."

"We deserve clean air. We deserve clean water. We deserve to live. We deserve better than doing nothing."

Tlaib made the remarks on the back of an article by The Guardian calling Detroit "the blackest city in the US."

“People don’t realize that the average life expectancy of someone living in Detroit and someone living in the suburbs is a difference of 10 or 15 years,” said Michelle Martinez, coordinator of the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition.

It is also worth noting Detroit has elected a Democratic mayor every term for the last 68 years.

Last year, anti-Trump Tlaib promised to "impeach the motherf---er" when she was elected.

She also made a celebratory Instagram video before voting to impeach Trump on two articles of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in December.

In August, Tlaib (D-MI) called for the names and employers of President Donald Trump's donors to be published publicly, claiming the move will expose "racism."

Tlaib, a lower rung on the ladder of the so-called "AOC Squad" of radical Democrats, is backing Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, who tweeted the personal details of Trump's backers from his own congressional district earlier this week.

Castro, the twin brother of 2020 Democrat Julian Castro, published information about Trump's donors on Twitter and decried them for "fueling a campaign of hate."

Castro came under fire from both Republicans and Democrats over his actions but picked up support from controversial anti-Trump lawmaker Tlaib.

"Chairman Castro, they don't like it when you name their donors," the Michigan congresswoman tweeted at the time.
