NBC News has done some analysis on the latest memes that we have been seeing from liberals. These memes have definitely gotten more and more prevalent, which bears mentioning. For example, we have all seen the crap they pull where “everything is racist”. Depending on which day you catch them, this is either a big joke or a deadly serious aspect of modern society.
Now, the new meme focuses on the Democrats’ infrastructure plans. Instead of saying “everything is racist”, they are now saying “everything is infrastructure”. They no longer claim roads and bridges as infrastructure. Any person, place or thing could be infrastructure when you are talking to them. If you have seen the recent battles that are taking place when it comes to the Biden bill, you are probably well aware already.is
Char Adams at NBC has now uncovered the most bizarre confluence of all. Infrastructure and racism are now one and the same if you let the liberals tell it. Of course, you are going to be confused and that’s why we are here to walk you through it. In 2020, traffic deaths went through a significant uptick.
Of the people who passed away during these accidents, a significant portion of them happened to be black. This is being blamed on the racist roadways and infrastructure. We are sure that you are having issues with this analysis, just like we are. That’s okay. We are going to get to this in a bit. Let’s take a closer look at the NBC report in the meantime:
“Black people represented the largest increase in traffic deaths last year than any other racial group, even as Americans drove less overall due to the pandemic, according to recently released data.
An estimated 38,680 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2020 — the largest projected number of deaths since 2007, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The number of Black people who died in such crashes was up 23 percent from 2019, the largest increase in traffic deaths among racial groups, according to the administration’s report.
Norman Garrick, a civil and environmental engineering professor at the University of Connecticut, said the numbers are saddening, but not surprising.”
We are going to try our best to help you make sense of this. “Black people tend to be overrepresented as walkers in this country,” Garrick begins. He believes that the average black person cannot afford a vehicle of their own. “People that walk in this country tend to experience a much, much higher rate of traffic fatality,” he continues.
This is not as crazy as we thought it would be but we are unsure why white people who live in low-income neighborhoods aren’t being represented. However, when you take a closer look at the study from the Department of Transportation? There are no mentions of any pedestrians. All sorts of statistics were offered up in this study but none of them seem to align with Norman Garrick’s hot takes.
The one stat that truly did surprise us was quite startling. Even though everyone was locked down last year, traffic accidents went up from 2019’s numbers. Before you start to worry, these numbers were not calculated by using the total number of fatalities. The total number of vehicle miles traveled was divided by the number of fatalities, so the overall numbers took a sharp nosedive. That was to be expected, though.
If you would like to figure out what NBC is talking about for yourself, be sure to check out the report. Liberals are sure to run with this report without even taking the time to read it because this is their favorite thing to do. Twitter now has an option where you are asked if you have read the story before sharing it. As we have been joking with our friends, this was the most needless addition that the app could have made. Liberals don’t care for information.
