Environmental racism is the disproportionate impact of environmental hazards on people of color. I often call it the ‘forgotten’ sector of social justice, as it is more often than not left off of the list of social injustices that people of color face (such as income inequality, education, health care, racial discriminations, etc.). However, I believe it is one of the most deadly injustices people of color face, as there is a direct link between environmental condition and human health. Furthermore, as the ocean becomes more and more ‘valuable’ to people, companies, and countries, it is important that people of color have equal access to a health ocean, and the best way to ensure that is by ensuring that the scientists, world leaders and policy makers making the decisions reflect the people/communities they serve.
