In a post COVID-19 existence, a Green New Deal will benefit the lives of vulnerable people of color in the United States. The explosion of the coronavirus in the United States emphasized the disparity between the white community and communities of color within the country, if it was not obvious already. These vulnerable communities of color have faced outbreaks and casualties at a far higher rate than their white neighbors. In the era of COVID-19, America failed its communities of color, but by implementing a Green New Deal it can guarantee a better future for these citizens. The indigenous peoples of America, ravaged by COVID-19, could see their rights and lands guaranteed under a Green New Deal. Furthermore, Black and Latinx individuals could not only see an influx of well-paying jobs into their communities, but also see decades of environmental discrimination begin to be repaired.
A Green New Deal is not certain to benefit the life of any person, including the persons of color residing in the United States. The Green New Deal is a socialist fantasy that will never take hold in the United States. Furthermore, communities of color face many more barriers than those of an environmental variety. It will take a serious re-evaluation of policies and laws in everything from economics, policing, housing, and more to make a seriously beneficial impact on the lives of American people of color.
