On Tuesday evening, PBS NewsHour devoted airtime to climate justice activist Elizabeth Yeampierre, who claimed that "environmental racism" harms minority communities.

Yeampierre claimed that Black and indigenous people tend to live in less eco-conscious and green communities due to their history of being colonized and oppressed and are therefore disproportionately affected by climate change. 

The short segment opened with Yeampierre explaining environmental racism’s effect on her own family. She said, "You grow up in a family that has asthma, upper respiratory disease, living in the midst of spaces where there are brown fields, lead paint, and the kinds of emissions that harm our community, as descendants of colonialism and extraction and enslavement, we particularly susceptible to toxic exposure."
