Little wonder oil companies can appear aloof to the concerns of citizens when presented with rubbish like this:
An investigation by a US civil rights group into the effects of the Macondo oil spill has found increased levels of mental health problems among Gulf Coast residents.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) probe also found that reports of domestic violence in communities near the Gulf have more than doubled since the spill.
The oil spill has caused men in Louisiana to kick the shit out of their wives twice as often? Seriously? This from people who want to advance the cause of coloured people. I’m not sure why they think this can be achieved by painting them as violent lunatics who respond to an oil spill by thrashing their wives and children with increased ferocity, but their solution is clear enough:
In its report, the NAACP urges BP to provide financial support for physical and mental health services in the region and for community-based organisations that help families affected by the oil spill.
Of course. Give us a load of money or the Gulf coast’s women will get a right-hander for burning the gumbo.
This would embarrass a Nigerian traffic cop.
