According to the NAACP, global warming is a civil rights issue, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of a culture free of racial injustice cannot come true without focusing on it to some degree.
Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, told Yale’s online radio Climate Connections.
Joe Walsh, former Congressman and now right-wing talk show host, tweeted about this statement, saying “NAACP believes climate change is a civil rights issue. Of course it is. Smh.”
