NAACP: Race Baiting Over Water Shutoffs in Detroit

If you are black and don’t give other blacks the slide, you are not only accused of anti-black racism, but WHITE anti-black racism.  A black-run city is not allowed to shut off water to people who don’t pay their bills – if they’re black – lest the NAACP come forth and accuse you of doing it over WHITE racism.

You must understand, that even though

Talking to WWJ’s Sandra McNeil shortly after the announcement, water department spokesman Greg Eno admitted there’s no doubt that the department has been lax over the years, letting the bills pile up.

It is still RACIST according to the NAACP who insists that,

Veronica Joice with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says, “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.”

Attorney Alice Jennings, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Detroit residents, said it’s a known fact that there are corporations that owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.

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

Asked by WWJ’s Charlie Langton directly if this is a “racial issue,” Jennings replied: “It sure is! You bet it is.”

 

This accuser gives no evidence of these companies owing anything, let alone that they are “predominantly white.” She’s saying that a black-run City of Detroit water company is stiffing blacks on their many months of unpaid water bills, and it’s a result of WHITE racism in some manner, though white people are scarcely – if at all – present among those in high places in Detroit City Hall. She also doesn’t bother to explain how a company can survive economically by doling out free services.

Never EVER blindly accept claims of racism when those making the claims do not offer an ounce of substantiation. This is a mistake I all too commonly see liberals make, which is why they keep falling for the racist bogeyman sky-is-falling narrative at every turn.

It is not ‘racist’ to question accusations and it not ‘racist’ to ask for evidence.

Do not accept the Left’s pedestalizing certain groups due to historical grievances.

And note, of course, the media’s silence in addressing these false, racist claims of one of their pet groups in the NAACP.
