In this article, you trivialize and racialize a complex political and financial situation. Detroit was trying to convince them to remain on Huron water and purchase it through them, but Flint refused and had ambitions to provide their own route to Lake Huron. Darnell Early was leading the water transition, and Early is an African American Man. What happened in Flint is the result of privatization in public utilities, the reason it happened in a poor community is that the local government was trying to cut costs in every way imaginable because the community is broke. Furthermore, the state government and the federal government has and continues to investigate what happened, has brought forth criminal charges in some instances, and may continue to so. To claim that this is a racial issue is really a stretch, and only serves to divide people and breed hatred. What is your call to action? What is the purpose of this article? What do you expect to happen as a result of writing this?
