Re: the Detroit News' enlightenment campaign on environmental equity
issues, there is a good letter in the June 15 edition of the Detroit News
from Professor Paul Mohai of the U. of Michigan summarizing recent
research on the topic. It includes his group's findings that minorities have
a four-fold higher probability of living within a mile of a hazardous waste
facility in Metro Detroit than white residents, and other findings that
nonwhites in Michigan live in communities with hazardous waste
facilities at a more disproportionate rate than for the nation as a whole. 
The letter can be found at:
