DEATH BY ZIP CODE: Here’s a snippet of what’s happening to MY people in Tallassee, AL. Did you know there is an entire landfill there in this small Ashurst-Bar-Smith Community that has to bear the brunt of the entire state of Alabama’s garbage? It stinks – literally. The garbage trucks are tearing up the roads with no funding to fix it. They come up and down the road at all hours of the night and day. Additionally, it’s making the environment sick. The soil. The air. The water. …and therefore, the people. The animals. The food. All because the land is owned by minorities – black people – whom they thought wouldn’t fight it. Thank you National Geographic and Tim Samuels for helping us to prove this wrong.
