Should Blacks Own Coal Mines In A Global Warming World?


We thought about this question (again) upon receiving the email below:

Dear Norris --

We recently started airing new ads on TV and I wanted to share one of them with you. It features Shane Evans. Shane is not an actor; he’s a mine dispatcher at Arch Coal’s Thunder River Basin Coal Company.

“The coal we have keeps America’s energy secure,” says Shane. “Coal is, without a doubt, America’s fuel.”

Watch and listen to Shane as he expands on this, and talks movingly about his brother who is serving in Afghanistan:

Help Shane get his message out!

If you like what Shane has to say, help spread the word – click on the “Send to a Friend” button after you’ve watched Shane. Or, share this e-mail using one of the links below.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the email Scott. Now regarding our questions about African American ownership of coal mines: You think you can help us out with that? One of the smaller mines will do.
