"Climate Czar" Browner Is Not Only a Socialist, But She Is Also A Racist! Another Inconvenient Truth.

Socialist "Climate Czar" Carol Browner has bigger problems than her links to Socialist International. Turns out that her last job in Washington, as EPA chief, was marred with incidents of racial discrimination!

The Examiner has this. (Hat tip

However, Browner's performance at one of her previous jobs -- as head of the Environmental Protection Agency during the Clinton Administration -- is only now receiving renewed scrutiny.

According to a February 2001 report in TIME magazine, the EPA was plagued with “festering racial problems” during Browner’s time in charge. One African-American EPA employee, Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, told TIME that she’d been passed over for promotions for being “too uppity,” adding, "We [African-American employees] were treated like Negroes, to use a polite term. We were put in our place.”

Coleman-Adebayo was later awarded $600,000 in damages in a settlement that found the EPA guilty of “discrimination and retaliation against whistle blowers.” Shortly thereafter, Congress passed the “No Fear” government whistle blower protection act in response to the Coleman-Adebayo v. Carol Browner decision.

Dr. Coleman-Adebayo lamented in a recent interview.

“The very woman I prevailed against in court is being elevated to a White House decision-level position.”

At least 150 EPA employees filed similar lawsuits during Browner’s time there. In one particularly bizarre incident, blogger Shawn Mallow notes, “Anita Nickens, an EPA specialist, and the only black present during a visit of Mrs. Browner, was told to clean the toilet prior to her arrival. Afterward, the rest of her white co-workers bragged about it.”

President-Elect Barack Obama spent Saturday retracing the tracks of The Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln.

For the record, Ms. Browner is not subject to Senate confirmation.
