Of course, once the Blacks are "exterminated" Flints water will be put back on the same water system as the rest of the cities and town surrounding flint, and pipes that do not have lead leaching into the water. [Side: If the people living in Flint are only being tested for Lead , they are crazy, because there was far more than just 'lead' in that nasty, toxic, CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY , water].

The problem began when in April 2014 the city of Flint temporarily changed its water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River to save money. The different chemistry of the river water corroded the city's old pipes, releasing huge amounts of lead into the drinking water. I’ve been tracking this too. Who the hell was in charge? Old pipes like that are usually coated with calcium plaque. It would take a while to eat away the calcium. Someone did not check the water’s pH or do any chemical...
