Michael Ash comments on studies that show the relationship between racial segregation and various type of pollution

Michael A. Ash, economics, comments in a news story that talk about studies that show the relationship between racial segregation and increases in air, water and even noise pollution. Ash says segregated minority areas of cities get a lot more pollution. “It’s so much pollution that it led not only to very high exposure to minorities, but it actually bounces back to at least some whites.” (New York Times, 4/3/18)
