This Article addresses the inherent prejudices in modern environmental policies and practices. Specifically, this Article discusses the continuing debate regarding the strength of the correlation between the location of hazardous waste facilities and an area's minority population. Professor Crawford urges his contemporaries, particularly Professor Vicki Been, to expand their evidentiary fields to include statistics of an area's standard of living in order to obtain an accurate analysis of the motives behind locating hazardous waste facilities in certain areas. The Article concludes with a case study of Noxubee County, Mississippi to demonstrate the effect of applying this expanded method of research.
