It’s definitely something that’s another tragedy for our community. [You] have to realize we have to prepare for this but, you never know when something like the oil spill will happen.”
“It’s out of control and it’s killing the animals and the business people that do fishing in that area. People don’t realize how this is it’s going to effect the entire country.” ~Percy “Master P” Miller as told to AllHipHop.com
I’m glad a New Orleans rapper can make a statement like this that shows concern for animals and business people as well as well as looking at a bigger picture. So often this BP oil leak is described as some type of local problem.
It’s as if it not only doesn’t affect other states in the South, like Florida, but as if it won’t affect the rest of the country, other countries and the world.
The image above is from video made available by BP PLC shows dispersant being applied to an oil leak during efforts to cap the Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf of Mexico Thursday June 3, 2010. The white wand in the center is releasing the dispersant.
Tuesday will mark day 50 of the oil spill.
