Norco a small United State tow is an improbable area to plan a revolt. The inhabitants always greet one another in the streets and support all values of Americans and community spirit.

This in regard to unequal job opportunities being harmed health-wise raising health concerns and being ignored as well as their people dying without anyone willing to help them. This film shows how environmental racism portrays the unequal impacts of pollution of environmental on racial minorities since it shows the relationship that exists between the exposure of high levels of pollution to people of color and the low level of environmental benefits that they enjoy.
