Is Green Too White?

In a recent article, “Beyond Eco-Apartheid,” Van Jones of Oakland’s Ella Baker Center for Human Rights asks, “Is the environmental movement too white?”

According to Jones, “The LOHAS (lifestyles of health and sustainability) sector is growing like crazy…but unfortunately [it] is probably the most racially segregated part of the US economy.”

The article was originally written for Common Ground, but I found it posted at Truth Out, which collects lots of good cultural critics including Jessica Valenti, Michael Pollan, Bill McKibben & Bill Moyers.
