Unequal Protection: Environmental Justice and Communities of Color: Dr. Robert Bullard

Unequal Protection is an in-depth exposition and discussion of the numerous ways in which lawmakers in the US racially discriminate in the creation of environmental policies and laws, and unfairly regulate environmental protection laws at the detriment of communities of colour. Further, Dr. Robert Bullard shares how communities of colour are disproportionately affected by pollution and how this all ties into racial justice. This book is a key example of why real environmentalism should be intersectional.
