Water Danger and Crisis Across America

 

Despite Flint’s water crisis being at least discussed on national media…sometimes…though not nearly covered enough, especially with the criminal governor still being free) I have seen even less regarding the problem with water contamination nationwide, not to mention air pollution and other dangerous toxin related issues. These toxic zones can be found mainly in the poor and/or Black communities of America.

For a country so “developed” the American government show little to less concern for its people and our well being.(I’d like to note, I am not singling out President Obama-this is the work and acceptance of generations along with members of the government; not one person alone.)

Though I am not staying in Alabama, where I am currently staying for a few months also has problems with water contamination. These people regularly seem to be getting a notice on the door to not drink the water a common thing.

It’s so common here not everyone respects the risk spoken either due to disbelief or no other options. The scariest part to me is Continue reading Water Danger and Crisis Across America

Chicago Residents Water Contaminated; Filing Lawsuit Against the City

While in Flint, MI the people are suffering, yet their Governor Rick Synder still roams freely. The state of Michigan has said it will spend $28 million on “solving” this crisis. Disgusting Governor has promised to place more funds towards the people of Flint in his upcoming budget proposal.

Money spending has been proposed to be used to buy extra bottles of water and to buy filters and similar systems to watch and track any “developmental  delays” in young kids.The major disaster the lead water has produced has gone ignored and unheard for too long. Now, however, that is about to change as Flint will be included as part of an emergency bill.

As I’ve noted  before in many posts, tragically Flint is not the only place in America where this sort of greedy abuse by the government can be found. Coming in next to Flint (yet receiving none of the media’s attention) is the people of Chicago against the city of Chicago for not informing anyone what-so-ever that their water had been contaminated and that for the past 8 years at least residents of the city were drinking lead contaminated water.

There has to be

Water Crisis in Flint, Environmental and Racism is NATIONAL

I’m going to do something different here… I’m going to use photos instead of words to share the reality of environmental racism. Toxic waste dumps, 1 of 5, coming up in the next video; that and a police brutality one hopefully sooner, but for sure within 2-3 days.


As I say in the video, this is and has been, and CONTINUES to be a NATIONAL problem within mainly Black communities. So here are a few photos….
First, notice below these two photos… The kids living in South Central, LA, have only a THIRD of the lung capacity compared to kids who live only 29 minutes away in Santa Monica, LA.
Why?… Think about it…

“We’re a Living Science Experiment.” Methane Gas Leak Critical

Methane is a global warming pollutant that is about 80 times more potent at warming the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. However, methane stays in the atmosphere for only about two decades, whereas carbon dioxide remains for many centuries, warming the climate over the long term.

“Methane is a really bad pollutant, it tends to have a bigger impact closer in than carbon, it doesn’t go as far,” said former New Jersey governor and EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman, in an interview with Mashable. “[Methane] concentrates more and it’s more of an issue and people are gonna start to recognize that, and question again that while this is better certainly than coal, it’s not as good as we could be.”

This is tragic but not new… All over America this insanity is and has been going on; because they were allowed to do it. More info on the places that aren’t making the news will be up asap….So for now…

Environmental Racism… Brockovich Calls Out City Of Stockton For Chloramine Plan

Things as we see happening in Flint, MI, (only because of forced attention and even now coverage isn’t as intense as it should be) happen and have been happening in poor and/or Black communities around America at an extremely high rate. In Cali Methane and the gas leaks have forced sickness and people to have to relocate; not just a few either… 10,000. Ten. Thousand. I’ll have videos up on that and other places all over racist America regarding stories ignored by the forprofit media just like these…. For now, if you want to know more please read a brief summary on it here. And below, is another example….

Well-known environment activist Erin Brockovich is voicing her concerns about the City of Stockton’s plan to add chloramines to its drinking water.

Methane Forcing People to Relocate in Cali; As the Horrific Water Crisis in Flint Continues…

While in Flint, MI, the people are struggling under the weight of an unjust, racist system that allows the government and companies to use land near mostly Black and/or poor neighborhoods to be exposed to not only unsafe air pollution, a less than satisfactory quality of living; but also toxic waste, lead -as we see in Flint, MI, where President Obama has just declared a state of emergency and former resident Michael Moore has an ongoing petition going to arrest Governor Synder for his “premeditated actions” of his “administrators,” Mr. Moore goes on to speak more truth by then tragically but truthfully stating:

 

“…you have effectively poisoned, not just some, but apparently ALL of the children in my hometown of Flint, Michigan.

And for that, you have to go to jail.

To poison all the children in an historic American city is no small feat. Even international terrorist organizations haven’t figured out yet how to do something on a magnitude like this.

But you did. Your staff and others knew that the water in the Flint River was poison — but you decided that taking over the city and “cutting costs” to “balance the budget” was more important than the people’s health (not to mention their democratic rights to elect their own leaders).
So you cut off the clean, fresh glacial lake water of Lake Huron that the citizens of Flint (including myself) had been drinking for decades and, instead, made them drink water from the industrial cesspool we call the Flint River — a body of “water” where toxins from a dozen General Motors and DuPont factories have been dumped for over a hundred years.”

Michael Moore was in Flint, MI, discussing the water crisis, calling on President Obama for help and protesting with the people against those in control over this tragic and sick attempt to put money before humanity.

Intro to Environmental Racism Within the Black Community

WHEW… *Listening to Tupac, trying to breathe… Before I get on topic real quick I’ll catch those who care up…

Earlier today I made this video; however, I haven’t successfully slept in 2? or so days, so being sharp is failing me, then there was far too much drama happen; I just got back so, while I’ll be doing research and contacting people and etc, I’m going to have to postpone making the video tonight and instead say…

Let’s change it from today until I’ll have the first video in the “My Journey to Expose” this stealth attack and laws that are used on the poor but moreover on the Black communities.

Police murder people, especially Males, Females in the Black community out of racism and because they CAN. The FBI wanted to and I quote from a declassified doc written by Edgar Hoover…
(Paraphrasing).”..want to divide and conquer them (Black community) with drugs, guns “ and he continues to list methods. Some is marked out, but what is scary is the non-marked out parts we CAN see are blunt, racist and the projects were created and implamente by whites without a heart or sou;  those would be the FBI and CIA, whom base their racism both in recent past and currently on anything other than what the real problem is.

Whites are innocent, that’s all they know. That, and they admit they planted guns and cocaine in the Black community…but no one cared, we did nothing. Yet, the Black community is STILL hurting because of many whites lack of concern for other human beings, lack of care for humanity, lack of self confidence, their savage actions are based on cruelty, hate and fear.

And lies. Which is what my work over this next year (and more to come) will be dedicated to… EXPOSING THE GOVERNMENT IN AMERICA FOR THE LIARS THEY ARE, EXPOSING LIES TO ANY AND ALL WHO WILL LISTEN- ESPECIALLY IN BLACK COMMUNITIES, AND FIGHTING FOR WAYS TO CHANGE THIS AND HELP SAVE LIVES.
