    Possibly Katrina poisoned the water, but instead of spending millions on a stadium, and on the New Orleans Saints
    Now this is worse than Flint!
    How long, how long?
    Before there is no more disrespect, neglect, mismanagement, misappropriations of funds, reaching the heights of this disgrace?
    Officials and Governments being allowed ( BY US ) to Poison / Hurt a Community. Neglecting A Basic Guaranteed Necessity,
    WATER

    ================================
    Politics (from Greek: πολιτικός politikos, definition "of, for, or relating to citizens") is the practice and theory of influencing other people. Politics involves the making of a common decision for a group of people, that is, a uniform decision applying in the same way to all members of the group. It also involves the use of power by one person to affect the behavior of another person. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance organized control over a human community, particularly a state. Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities.

    THE CITY AUDITORS WORRIED ABOUT $20,000 WORTH OF ROOF REPAIRS... AND THIS IS CRISIS EXIST!
    =========================================================
    For years, St. Joseph's residents have grappled with frequent boil-water advisories and yellow or brown water flowing from their faucets. No one has reported getting sick directly from the water, but then no one interviewed in St. Joseph said they dared to drink the tap water or to brush their teeth with it.

    And many have wondered why no one has solved the problem.

    St. Joseph Mayor Edward Brown declined CNN's request for an interview about his town's audits in February. He said he is aware of residents' concern about the town's water and is "working to solve it."

    Nielsen report confirms blacks watch more TV than any other group

    2016 Nielsen Report: Black Buying Power Has Reached Tipping Point, But How Will Black America Leverage it to Create Wealth?
    ========================
    According to a new 2013, report published by Nielsen, African-American viewers carry a lot of weight when it comes to audience and purchasing power.

    The market research firm’s latest African-American consumer study, titled Resilient, Receptive and Relevant, details the need for corporations and marketers to connect with black audiences, who now have a buying power of $1 trillion and watch significantly more television than any other group.

    The report found African-Americans favor programming with diverse casts, and that African-American women watch more television than men.

    Top television shows perhaps unexpectedly include reality TV programs and Scandal.

    More surprising, however, may be the lack of attention paid to the findings, which have been published for the last three years.

    “It’s not only that the African-American audience watches more TV, but it’s substantially more – two hours over other groups,” Ron Simon, head curator at The Paley Center for Media, tells theGrio. “It’s known in the industry, but it certainly hasn’t gotten the attention I think that it deserves.”

    List of sports teams in Louisiana

    If I'm caught placing a bet on a game or watching TV news, or the Super Bowl.. its because the wings are provided and the drinks are free.


    Let your dollars speak, because we are Invisible, when to comes to being heard, NO VOICE, cause we don't matter to them, and OF NO Significance to America.
    In another post. I stated this, Unless we help OURSELVES by re-directing, sometimes withholding our earned dollars, and stop participating in our own demise, we will be demised.

    As we live in this village (otherwise known as a community), we must learn how to prioritize our thoughts and our actions based on what is truly important.

    We talk a lot about the circulation of the Black dollar in the Black community but it is difficult to create economic advancement for our communities if we are constantly spending our dollars unwisely outside our community.


    Consider these statistics:

    55 percent of African Americans are unbanked or under-banked meaning they do not have a bank account or the appropriate bank account (Federal Deposit Corporation Survey)
    "About a quarter of all Hispanic (24 percent) and black (24 percent) households in 2009 had no assets other than a vehicle, compared with just 6 percent of white households. These percentages are little changed from 2005." (Pew Research)
    "The median amount Black households reported saving on a monthly basis is $189, compared to $367 among White households.... [This is] the first time in a decade that African-American households have reported saving less than $200 per month." (Ariel Investments 2010 Black Investor Survey)
    "93 percent of our income is spent outside the community." Lee Jenkins, author of Taking Care of Business
    "Blacks on the average are six times more likely than Whites to buy a Mercedes, and the average income of a Black who buys a Jaguar is about one-third less than that of a White purchaser of the luxury vehicle." Earl Graves, Black Enterprise Magazine
