Here’s the cutting edge of victimology:

Last week, the Congressional Black Caucus released a report that concluded that blacks are disproportionately affected by climate change.

According to the report, blacks are more likely to live in polluted areas, to lose their jobs, or even to die in heat waves because of climate change. All this suffering, even though “both historically and at present, African Americans emit less greenhouse gas” than other Americans, according to the report.

Thus we see a marriage of two great themes of modern American public

life: identity politics and environmental hand-wringing. Even if a problem affects the entire planet, some group will find a way to don the mantle of victimhood. [NYSun]
