I’ve been reading a leftist race blog (which, for various reasons, I shall not link to). One particular post deals with the environmentalist movement and claims that non-white environmentalists are not taken seriously by the movement at large.
The post lists several non-white “green activists”:
Van Jones, Majora Carter, Sanjayan, Waagari Matthai, Bryant Terry, Vandana Shiva and Oscar Olivera.
In terms that a leftist might find acceptable, I’ll present my theory on why non-white environmentalists might not be accepted as mainstream.
With the possible exception of Sanjayan, most of the environmentalists listed seem to focus mainly on their own people, their own culture and their own lands. In contrast, white environmentalists transcend their own race; their own heritage means little or nothing to them and they have given themselves to the world at large.
