Abstract: From the Introduction: "In this paper, we seek to bring together common property theory and scholarship on the construction of race and white privilege. Our work is inspired by our engagement with the Environmental Justice movement as researchers and activists. The environmental justice (EJ) movement (and politicized EJ scholarship) has made the radcialization of environmental commons visible and challenged its legitimacy. In so doing, this movement can help us to critically engage with commons, both environmental and otherwise, and can enrich our theorization of racism."
