When they're putting up warning signs for when this Big One hits, and your reaction is that it's racist.
The NAACP declared that the policy to warn the public “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 reason is that many of the older
buildings are owned by African Americans that that the posted warnings
will make it difficult for them to rent space or sell the property.
Stupid. On a monumental level.
Because when the Cascadia Subduction Zone ruptures, the skin color of the property owner won't mean squat.
