Environmentalists. According to merriam webster dictionary, it's a person who to protects the natural world from pollution and other threats. One who is concerned with the environment quality. The term environment seems to have no connection to something else like society, the human interaction or behavior. It leaves no space for different environmentalists, for those who emcompass different qualities different opinions to grow from. 

To be an environmentalist...what doesn that even mean? White priviledge? Am I, a latina, low income individual not allowed or better yet said not qualified to be known as an environmentalist?
