Climate Change Disproportionately Affects Black Community Says Biden Admin

( – With nearly every challenge the United States allegedly faces, Democrats find a way to blame climate change. They bolster these claims with the argument that people of color are disproportionately affected by almost everything. One recent example came from Admiral Rachel Levine, who serves as the assistant secretary for health at the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Levine is a man who identifies as a woman and has previously faced scrutiny for suggesting that children could be experiencing puberty for the incorrect gender.

In a video posted on social media for Black History Month, Levine claimed that the “physical and mental health of black communities” is disproportionately affected by climate change. Levine argued that health issues caused by the climate affect black people more because of where their homes are located. Levine also claimed that 65 percent of black people experience anxiety because they worry about climate change. Levine said that the agency’s Office of Climate Change and Health Equity, as well as the Office of Environmental Justice, was working with black communities and health care providers to find new approaches to address the alleged consequences black people face because of climate change.

Florida Republican Representative Byron Donalds shared Levine’s post on X, formerly Twitter, arguing that there were plenty of other genuine issues that Levine could highlight. Donalds wrote that policies imposed by Democrats have had the worst impact, including those that have caused inflation, made the opioid crisis worse, and decreased Americans’ ability to access capital. He also said Democrats have catered to illegal migrants rather than the American people, and that Democrats have imposed policies that made “our streets less safe.” Republican Tennessee Representative Diana Harshbarger suggested that Levine’s comments were the result of being mentally ill.
