Is it racism too when people die in buildings that are not up to code? Any rescue attempts will be tinged by calls of racism I suspect.

"Is it racism too when people die in buildings that are not up to code?"

Depends on the building. If it's a public housing project, or, alternatively, a lacrosse training facility, you know when you're building that what race of people will overwhelmingly be in there. So you could argue it's rayciss if it's not up to code.

You can safely ignore anything written in that newspaper. It’s a Moon paper, and a purveyor of fake news.

(notably not "a Moon paper")


"PORTLAND, Ore. — A new city policy requiring public signs on brick buildings warning they might collapse in an earthquake is part of a long history of white supremacy aimed at forcing black people to move out of neighborhoods, the NAACP of Portland, Oregon, says.

The policy "exacerbates a long history of systemic and structural betrayals of trust and policies of displacement, demolition, and dispossession predicated on classism, racism, and white supremacy," the group said."

What’s odd is that the naacp seems to advocating on behalf of the building owners rather than the tenants.
