"People of color have environmental experiences that differ from those of whites because the environment, like race, is both a social and a cultural construct. Throughout history, those who society has identified as white have appropriated land and resources, controlling the movement and hindering the economic development for people of color. Whites are free to express themselves, to live where they want, and to develop the kinds of relations with the land as they see fit. People of color, however, do not enjoy all of these choices."
- Marguerite L. Spencer, University of St. Thomas Law Journal, “Environmental Racism and Black Theology: James H. Cone Instructs Us on Witness”
