Is there a link between civil rights for minorities and affordable energy prices? Well according to a new book entitled “Energy Keepers, Energy Killers, the New Civil Rights Battle” the answer is “Yes.” Comments Cyril Boynes of the Congress on Racial Equality: “Affordable energy transforms the civil rights enshrined in our constitution – the rights Dr. King fought and died for – into rights we actually enjoy. Laws and policies that make energy unavailable – or drive up energy prices – trample on people’s civil rights, by denying them equal access to jobs, healthcare, financial security and the American Dream. CORE intends to protect our civil rights – and ensure that we have access to the energy that belongs to all Americans.”
