The liberal police are yelling “racist” once again, but this time it’s about trucks. 

According to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), clean air is racist. 

Pollution? Racist as well. 

(CARB) stated that the state is considering new regulations to ban the sale of all diesel semi-trucks by 2040 to fight climate change and to amend a history of “racist” practice. 

CARB believes that the large freight trucks should be banned because the diesel emissions that are excreted from them “disproportionately affect low-income and minority communities due to racist zoning policies.”

CARB also claimed that Black and Latino communities are most at harm since the trucks give off a significant amount of pollution.
