Robert Bullard: How Environmental Racism Shapes the US

Texas Southern University’s Dr. Bullard is considered the father of Environmental Justice for his work documenting pollution and toxic waste dumping in Houston's Black neighborhoods.

Hear directly from him on what environmental justice is, why its important, and how it impacts our everyday lives.

The U.S. is segregated, and so is pollution. These words come from the so-called "father of environmental justice," Robert Bullard. As a sociologist, he has proved that minority communities in Houston suffer most from pollution and has written more than a dozen books on sustainable development, envi...

The Vaccine waitlist web link doesn't work. I tried Chrome and Firefox and the registration button never gets enabled. When I click on the link in the e-mail, nothing happens.
https://youtu.be/K2MOUXM78ls How out of control and making up lies can a gang of thugs be? How much oppression can they bring to a FREE people? Where do they learn to be abusive and unlawful? This is a disgusting display of threats and intimidation for NO CRIME......
Will the number for illegal dumping be answering soon?
This should be an elected position this process has left the voters out.
Police brutality needs a ban on chokeholds and shooting unarmed people. What do you think?

Commissioner Ellis, I'm praying for you. Praying for your retirement, that is. Vote for Maria T Jackson for Harris county commissioner precinct 1
Where do I find the list of rules governing photography at Challenger Park? I live close to the park and have taken family photos there for years. I'm also a high school photography teacher. I have taken students there for the past few years to take pictures at the park. We were told by Chad Adkins that photography is prohibited at the park and we can no longer do that. When was that decision made and where are the rules prohibiting photography posted? I have a lot of questions.
Significant weather is moving through Harris County. Please continue rely on updates at ReadyHarris. Avoid high water on roadways.
I strongly oppose the 8% tax increase you are proposing. It appears that once Democrats get elected (no matter their position) all they want to do is increase taxes instead of looking closely at the budget on what can be either cut or eliminated.
Thanks for your beautiful and poignant remembrance of Hon. Mickey Leland on the anniversary of his death 30 years ago today. I remember him well from my days at the Capitol - he was indeed a force for good. Thank you for your service, too!
