In the mid 1960s, the residents of various communities realized we were being dumped on by multiple companies with their toxic waste. The oil industry was dumping their waste in the Cal compact landfill. We fought for our right to live in a healthy community and won. We fought the same companies to incorporate that we have to fight now to stop the contamination brought by the oil industry.
In the late 1960s early 1970s new homes were built in north Carson my mother and father decided they would like to buy one of those homes. I remember when they came home so angry because if you were not a minority you were not getting into these homes.
The same corporations that feel they have a right destroy the quality of life are the same who sold the land for minority residential property.
Could it be they feel minority lives don’t matter? Below are the faces of the people who think they own our lives. The faces that city council think are more important than ours.
