It is important to note that the three counties in which the Savannah River site is located are disproportionately poor and disproportionately African American, compared to the US averages. In particular, the most downriver county of the site, Allendale is 72.9% black compared to the US average of 13.1%. It has household incomes, which are less than half of the US average, and, thus not surprisingly, has over twice as many people under the poverty level, as the US average.

Why are Obama-Merkel trying to high level dump nuclear waste on these people? There are plenty of poor people in Germany to be dumped on, leading us to believe that it has to do with Lower US Radiation Standards and/or Racism.

Negotiations began in 2011, meaning that it was on President Obama’s watch – clear proof that the US needs alternative parties on both sides of the political spectrum, so that the people can vote neither Democrat nor Republican without fears of splitting the vote. One can only wonder whose president Obama is? He certainly is not representing the interests of the American people.
