Mother Jones Takes on a Tallassee, Alabama Landfill.

"Officials who are supposed to protect us...don't, because we are black people."

    
The Trump Administration is emasculating the EPA, and that may make even worse the landfill situation described in a Mother Jones article.

They say that toxic contents from the dump have had negative impacts on their health. They believe that conditions such as breathing problems, migraines, and even an increase in rates of cancer can be linked to the landfill. And then, because the landfill is so close to their properties, community members allege that it's decreasing the value of their homes, making it nearly impossible to sell to anyone but the landfill itself.
