‘This is environmental racism’: Black community in Memphis resists proposed crude oil pipeline – ABC News

“They called our community the path of least resistance.” Black community in Memphis fights back against oil pipeline When her father died, Linda Hayes said his last request to her was to take care of the vegetable garden he grew for his community at his home in Boxtown, Tennessee….But a proposed 49-mile crude oil pipeline connecting a refinery in Memphis to an existing pipeline in Marshall County, Mississippi, now threatens to cut through Boxtown, spurring allegations of environmental racism from community members including Hayes….Cohen cited the historic nature of communities including Boxtown as well its potential to contaminate the Memphis aquifer….Martin said the pipeline route was chosen “very carefully and deliberately” — avoiding properties with homes on them and emphasizing that “this pipeline is not about race, it’s about safety.” She added that pipelines and aquifers “coexist safely across the country,” noting that they currently have a pipeline “operating safely on top of the Memphis Sands aquifer and we expect that our pipeline will be no different.” Pipeline operators have said the construction will support some 500 direct and indirect jobs in the area, as well as provide more than $3 million in local tax revenue along the route each year.
