The South Shore of Staten Island was one of the sections of New York City hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Having grown up on the Island, NYOIL (p/k/a Kool Kim of UMC’s) recently took some time out to lend a hand with the relief effort, and while doing so discussed his feelings with regards to the racial tension that’s historically divided the African-American community of the north and white communities in the southern part of the borough. After recalling his own firsthand experiences with said tension, he says: “I understand suffering. And I know what hurt feel like. I know what tragedy is about. And I’m not gonna sit idly by and watch people struggle.” Thought provoking stuff.
