"You will see by it, that the Opinion of this mischievous Effect from Lead, is at least above Sixty Years old; and you will observe with Concern how long a useful Truth may be known, and exist, before it is generally receiv'd and practis'd on."

Yours most affectionately
B. Franklin The Famous Benjamin Franklin Letter On Lead Poisoning
Phila July 31, 1786 (To Benjamin Vaughan)

"Water from clay pipes is much more wholesome than that which is conducted through lead pipes, because lead is found to be harmful for the reason that white lead is derived from it, and this is said to be hurtful to the human system."
Vitruvius
In De Architectura, Book 8, Chap 6, Sec. 10. As translated in Morris Hicky Morgan (trans.), Vitruvius: The Ten Books on Architecture (1914), 246.

Disadvantaged people are often overlooked in meetings; advantaged people can fight this by boosting the signal.

Redlining was a process by which the government and banks colluded to deny African-Americans the ability to own property, or at least, property anywhere worth living. Lead poisoning runs very closely along the old redlines, a form of environmental racism. Note that while Boss White's territory isn't on the old map, the featured sections do conform very closely to the modern poverty map. In other words, America doesn't have upward mobility, it has a crotch lottery: the people and place you're born to influence your life more than anything else.
