White Detroit Business Owners Owe Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Past Due Water Bills

After the recession hιt, the unemployment rate in Detroit skyrocketed to 50 percent. Currently,Detroit water protests the mostly African-American city is undergoing a massive bankruptcy and restructuring, but that hasn’t stopped city officials from turning off water to past due citizens by the thousands. This has the NAACP Legal Defense Fund accusing city leaders of racism.

“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,” said Veronica Joyce of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

Attorney Alice Jennings has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Detroit’s residents, CBS Detroit reports. She points out that there are corporations that owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in past due water bills but haven’t had their water shυt off.

“These companies are basically Caucasian companies,” Jennings said. “The folks who are being cυt off are almost one hundred percent African American.”

Water department spokesperson Greg Eno said the city bears some responsibility for allowing water bills to run up over the last few years, but that the city can’t just give away free water.

“It also teaches them, or works into their budget, monies that would be dedicated to their water bill, because they have to make a contribution every month,” he explained. “This is not a program where you get everything given to you and you contribute nothing.”

He continued: “We don’t have, you know, a bottomless cup of funds.”

In a statement, the United Nations called the water shutoffs a viοlation of human rights.

“Because of a high poverty rate and a high unemployment rate, relatively expensive water bills in Detroit are unaffordable for a significant portion of the population. … The households which suffered unjustified disconnections must be immediately reconnected,” read the statement.

  1. This scenario like so many others are all part of the new world order(disorder) agenda. While the black masses continue to be brainwashed and misled thru the use of phony,watered down safe so-called entertainment.These white owned companies and banks are making long term plans to stay in power and make sure to the masses of black people poor,stuck in poverty and slave like ignorance and eventually wiped off the face of this earth for good.
    A vast % of average black people refuse to wake up mentally to see the overall scale of this sinister plan and they continue to be misled by eurocentric standards and values.

  2. In my readings, I have said, that THE WHITE RACE INTENDED TO HOARD WATER AND USE IT TO CONTROL PEOPLE OF COLOR……and so it begins.

  3. The minimal acceptable model books need to include a headshot of yourself smiling and
    one not smiling, a full length body shot, natural make-up and hair-off face.
    First the fear is addressed, then the back pain begins to go away.
    So That-nicknamed “essential – the cost of gasoline value ranges,” bucks per barrel
    or clip tariff of unsavory gasoline during budget cut by its million United Kingdom cold weather sections
    regarding natural gas value rate produced.

  4. one of the finest system I know, thank you very significantly .

  5. Exceptional read, I lately passed this onto a colleague who has been performing a bit research on that. And the man actually bought me lunch because I came across it for him smile So allow me to rephrase that: Appreciate your lunch!
