It's from 10/07 but, if a white person said this & white, was where it says black, OH MY! Instantly, this would be the most RACIST person alive! & why isn't Jones concerned about all poor kids, he does say "low-income people" but then he says "poor black kids". Your thoughts?
If we can get these youth in on the ground floor of the solar industry now, where they can be installers today, they’ll become managers in five years and owners in 10. And then they become inventors. The green economy has the power to deliver new sources of work, wealth and health to low-income people—while honoring the Earth. If you can do that, you just wiped out a whole bunch of problems. We can make what is good for poor black kids good for the polar bears and good for the country."
—Van Jones, as told to Thomas Friedman in the Oct. 17, 2007 issue of The New York Times
