Eminent Domain and Civil Rights

“[t]he burden of eminent domain has and will continue to fall disproportionately
upon racial and ethnic minorities, the elderly, and economically disadvantaged.”
Unfettered eminent domain authority, the NAACP concluded, is a “license for
government to coerce individuals on behalf of society’s strongest interests.”

That is the NAACP quoted in an op-ed by David Beito and GMU law prof Ilya Somin. 

Hat tip to The Beacon.
