To The Editor:

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is dead.

Big business does not care about the environment or especially, the poor and minorities. There are many examples of this attitude.

Does anyone remember the Massie coal mine disaster or the many oil spills that were preventable? Also, there are alternative forms of energy and technology is always coming up with new ideas.

I see this as a win for Black Lives Matter and the environment.

Also the EXEL pipeline has been stopped. Another minority group, the American Indians, are being spared.

Indian lives also matter. White lives matter. Air pollution, unlike people, does not discriminate.
