If you’re not familiar with the shitwagon (meant “situation” but autocorrect knows what’s up) with Flint’s water, there is a wealth of knowledge and thinkpieces out on the Google.
None of these will, in any way, stop the Facebook whining from white people who think anyone critical of emergency management is just picking on poor innocent Governor Snyder and white people and Republicans. NO YOU DENSE DOGWHISTLE RACIST HILLJACK FUCKS IT IS IN FACT VERY VALID TO REFER TO THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL DISENFRANCHISEMENT OF DISPROPORTIONALLY BLACK CITIZENS (see link one) AS “RACIST,” AND IT IS ALSO VERY FUCKING VALID TO BLAME THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF A DECISION THAT LITERALLY POISONED A CITY FOR POISONING SAID CITY. STOP YOUR DAMN WHINING AND START DONATING/VOLUNTEERING/HELPING WHILE OUR USELESS SHITASS GOVERNOR ASKS THE FED TO FIX HIS MESS.
DONE with these useless whining fucks. Stop being knee-jerk defensive of this sorry government, crying ‘reverse racism!’ and tuning out any facts to the contrary, and maybe start fucking helping our fellow Michiganders who are being poisoned by their drinking water.
I’ll leave this link here as well, because it hasn’t gotten as much traffic in these discussions:
Also, here is a very helpful timeline of events:
And an even more helpful list of ways we can help:
Thanks for the venting space, GT :)
