There are more black men in prison than whites. The laws don't apply to the two races the same. White cops can murder our children one day and they're back on the job the next; business as usual. We NEVER read about BLACK cops murdering WHITE children at ALL!!! They damn sure wouldn't be going back to work the NEXT day. We'd be reading about them taking their last meal before their execution. These floods are absolutely horrifying. Poor blacks are suffering the most. There are probably a few...

Good luck with that! As I always say first we need to EDUCATE our people regarding their history-since they quietly took it outta of the schools. And then we have to rebuild our communities....street by street....neighborhood by neighorhood. I got in a debate with a colleague about this very thing who says in order to eradicate racism, it must start with the community as a whole. I disagree.

All the Black people in Wisconsin should sue the maker/designer of that map, and should file a Class Action Lawsuit against the State of Wisconsin, and/or the Cities in Wisconsin that have conspired to create, utilize and authorize any official use of the RACIST "map". As African Americans, we all should take the time research if RACISM is being depicted on such a "dot map" of our own city/town, or any other cities/town in America.

Well, actually, since Flint was approximately 30Something% White, they are throwing White children, (and men and women) under that same damn bus. That should tell White Americans that Racists and/or a Corporate Oligarchy is willing to throw at least 30% of White people 'under the bus' [i.e. sacrifice as "collateral" ] for an opportunity to harm and/or destroy Black people. It should tell White people in America, that they too, will be sacrificial lambs of a psychopathic corporate oligarchy .
