Dem Congressman: BP Not Giving Minorities "Opportunities" In Clean Up

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) says minorities are getting tougher jobs and not getting "opportunities" in the oil spill clean up.

Cummings applauds NAACP for being concerned that minorities are getting more difficult jobs.

"The fact that they would go around the law or go around what is decent or right and do what they want to do, does not surprise me. And you can call it whatever you want but the fact is that there are many minority folks down there who need opportunities who want to work, who want to take care of their families and are not be given the opportunity and that is simply wrong. Period," Cummings said.
