"The Wrong Complexion for Protection": WaPo Story on Tennessee's Alleged Environmental Racism Does Not Register on Local Blogosphere Radar

Yesterday the Washington Post ran the horrible story of the government's neglect and failure to warn a black Dickson family about their polluted well water while they allegedly relieved every white Dickson family with a polluted well. WaPo also provides a video. Nobody in Nashville is talking about it.


  1. I was surprised as well. I did not do a full post on it but it was noted by Peebles and I linked to her brief post in yesterday's link dump post.

  2. Not quite a total shutout on this news. We had it in our Morning Links on Tuesday.
