When the NAACP cries 'racism' it implies there are racists. We wonder who these racists could be? Obviously, the NAACP presumes there are white people denying water to black Detroit residents.
It would be helpful if the complainers would identify these foul racists by name.
Could it be there are no white racists being nasty to black Detroiters? Could it be this latest slur is a sham?
Is it possible that the accusation of racism hurled at whites -- even where there are no whites -- is, itself, black-on-white racism?
Dare we accept this current accusation of racism to be a quintessential civil rights ploy in which racist black activists make false allegations?
Could it be the entire civil rights movement has been nothing more than an enduring black-on-white scam?
The dilemma in Detroit is a harbinger for the rest of the nation. Once the white infrastructure is displaced by cultural Marxism -- when we're all "equal" -- will we be equally short of water?
From our source we read:
After a class action lawsuit filed against the city of Detroit, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says that recent water shutoffs to Detroit residents were racially motivated.Continue reading ►
Veronica Joice with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says, “That (the shutoffs are) being done in a discriminatory fashion; and they should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens — the majority of whom are African American here in Detroit.”
Attorney Alice Jennings, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Detroit residents, said it’s a known fact that there are corporations that owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.
“These companies are basically Caucasian companies,” Jennings said. “The folks who are being cut off are almost one hundred percent African American.”
Asked by WWJ’s Charlie Langton directly if this is a “racial issue,” Jennings replied: “It sure is! You bet it is.”
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 homes and businesses in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. Water was restored to 43 percent after customers paid or worked out payment plans.
At a bankruptcy hearing Monday, federal Judge Steven Rhodes asked the city for an update on the water issue, but fell short of ordering any action.
Rhodes said the people of Detroit “need their water,” but added, “There’s nothing for me to do about that today.”
During the same hearing, water department officials announced they would stop water shutoffs for the next 15 days while working to do a better job getting the word out residents that the city will help poor people pay for water.
