Abstract

This Comment addresses racism in the siting of hazardous waste facilities. The Comment begins by describing the various studies that document the correlation between race and siting decisions, and the Comment concludes that race is a primary factor in environmental siting decisions. After analyzing the various attempts by minority plaintiffs to address this inequity, the author concludes that Title VI may be the best option for minority plaintiffs to achieve environmental justice.
