Tucker Carlson says roads can't be racist. People who study infrastructure say he's missing the point
This week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson led the efforts to ridicule U.S. Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg for saying he would use the government's new infrastructure bill to fix the racism that's built into the country's highways, bridges and urban design. Angela Wright, a Canadian writer, historian and political analyst who has written about race and urban planning in Canada, says Buttigieg's approach is long overdue. She says that the same problems exist in Canada, from Africville in Halifax, to Little Burgundy in Montreal, to the Eglinton rapid transit line in Toronto.
