I appreciate the backup--and the white governor's ineptness is obvious...

But I won't call a case it a case study of institutionalized white racism --i. e., because a lot of white Flint residents have been getting sick too!!

What do you call it? I called it genocide against the poor.


gen·o·cide
ˈjenəˌsīd/
noun



    1. the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.
      synonyms: mass murder, mass homicide, massacre; More

Flint, Michigan water contamination: Obama declares emergency


US President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency in Flint, Michigan, where the water has become contaminated with lead.

The city's water became contaminated after a change in supplier in 2014. Corrosive water leached lead from old pipes into the water supply.

The emergency declaration will unlock $5m (£3.5m) in federal funding.

Earlier in the week, Governor Rick Snyder had requested $31m from the federal government ...

Hillary is absolutely right, America should be outraged at the genocide, Governor.


Video: Gov. Snyder: Clinton politicizing Flint's water crisis


... During Sunday's debate, Clinton said "every single American should be outraged" by the water crisis, adding that "if the kids in a rich suburb of Detroit had been drinking contaminated water and being bathed in it, there would have been action."

Following a speaking engagement at a Martin Luther King Day event in Flint, the Republican governor said her tactic doesn't help solve the problem ...

Flint resident Charles Chatmon carries a free water filter and case of water away from a Flint fire station on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016 in Flint. Safe drinking water has not flowed from many Flint faucets for almost two years after the state-run city switched its source to the highly corrosive Flint River and failed to treat it properly to protect lead from leaching into it.
