On a new episode of VICELAND's HATE THY NEIGHBOR, comedian Jamali Maddix heads to Oklahoma to meet members of the Ponca Tribe, whose reservation has been deteriorating for years as massive oil companies continue to pollute their tribal lands. Jamali tours the reservation with environmental activist and tribal leader Mekasi Camp-Horinek, who's convinced it's not a coincidence big oil has been contaminating Ponca territory—but environmental racism.
