It seems as if every day, the woke crazies come up with something more idiotic than the day before.
Once again, we find woke leftists putting their race-baiting political agenda ahead of science. This time, woke “biologists” claim that evil white people are destroying animal habitats in black neighborhoods, and the lack of animals is affecting black residents.
Yes, I’m serious.
According to these leftist “scientists,” animals have fled minority neighborhoods for the suburbs where white people live. The absence of wildlife in minority neighborhoods hurts minorities because they are further distanced from nature.
Get a load of this from the Daily Mail:
A research study that looked into the genetic diversity of wildlife in neighborhoods across the United States found government rules that previously mandated separated neighborhoods based on race, is still having lingering after-effects on where animals choose to live decades on.
The study suggests that areas where mostly white people live have a greater diversity when it comes to animals living in the area.
Areas with less diversity could also be having negative effects on both the mental and physical health of the people who live in such ‘deprived’ neighborhoods.
The findings were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The peers who reviewed this study and its author don’t live in white or minority neighborhoods. Based on this thesis, they live in padded rooms.
It noted that the practice of redlining essentially drove out woodland creatures from minority neighborhoods leading to negative effects on the mental and physical well-being of minority residents.
Redlining is a discriminatory practice in which financial institutions, insurance companies, and other businesses draw lines on a map to define areas where they will or will not provide services, such as mortgages, insurance, or loans.
The study added that a far wider variety of species exists in white neighborhoods than in black neighborhoods.
“The pair argue that the lack of urban biodiversity has resulted in a negative impact on human well-being, leading to a complete absence of nature in neighborhoods that are predominantly non-white,” the Mail added.
