National Geographic posted an unhinged and unscientific tweet on Independence Day saying fireworks are racist because they affect communities of color.
What complete BS.
This is what can be described as “scientism” and NOT “science.”
There is absolutely no proof to support this theory.
In fact, in cities like St. Louis and New York City, minorities shoot off guns on New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July. This is much more dangerous than sniffing fireworks smoke for a night.
The junk scientists behind this nonsense also did not take into consideration the thousands of communities, including rural towns, where fireworks are a 4th of July tradition. The people there are not affected by the smoke for some reason.
