Thing is, as I’ve said in other posts…this is happening everywhere especially in urban Black communities and/or poor communities. Where I’m at now the water is red/brown/orange half the time… You can’t cook with it, drink it… America knows what Amerikkka’s doing… I truly wish the people would unite… We need, NEED that.
SAN JOSE (KCBS) — Water officials in Silicon Valley are warning residents that the water coming out of their taps may be smelly and dirty, but it’s still safe to drink. “Some people might notice a dirt-like smell or taste in their tap water, and that is because of a bloom of algae called Geosmin,”…

This post is what I suppose should be called part two of the water contamination crisis in Alabama, you can find the first piece I wrote here. First note: it was the water board that made this choice; a choice science and scientists back up as I’ll show below.
As you’ll see below, “oddly” there seems to be some conflict in what the scientists and state and county government believe.While at the cited press conference government officials numerous times stated they would not panic over this situation and so forth; only to find out by more scientists that they were in the wrong. Anyhow, that insane view of don’t worry the water is probably safe; drink it while you wait for us to figure it out! doesn’t work for me.
I automatically am going to believe the ones who have spent decades studying the topic and the water board and not drink the water if for no other reason, as a precaution. Let us not forget, the scientists I speak of have made it their job to study this kind of issue, have history as well as years of data on their side. They support the water boards call to not drink the contaminated water.
Should be plain and simple… but it’s not.
Government officials in the area are frustrated and clearly

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
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…
The below photo is a real photo; Mossville, Louisiana. Click here to read this Black family’s story, dating back to the 1800s.

These photos capture it perfectly; tragic that is true…
