Back in the ancient days, people of color would be used in industries especially in sections with toxic and hazardous substances. The main purpose of this essay is to ascertain that environmental racism is still a major crisis because the people of color in Upper side of Bronx, as well as the minority, are discriminated in making ecological decision and the marginalized people are not involved in environmental movements in industries, and there is need to ensure environmental justice at all times. .
