Open Thread | The Capitol City of Mississippi-Jackson- Is Without Useable Water | 3CHICSPOLITICO

Point 1.
Our funding of Ukraine has absolutely NOTHING related to funds going to Jackson.

Point 2.
The State of Mississippi has been given BILLIONS in infrastructure funds.
I know that Mississippi is consistently in the bottom 5 of everything with regards to this country. But, Mississippi is a leech state – it gets back FAR MORE from the Federal Government than it puts into it. Don’t get it twisted. The Federal Government HAS NOT shortchanged Mississippi when it comes to BEING GIVEN its Federal dollars.

Point 3.
Mississippi is run, at the State Level – by REPUBLICANS.
REPUBLICANS, who have done everything they could to shortchange, underfund, sabotage Jackson for the sin of being majority Black. You want to know what SYSTEMATIC RACISM looks like? Just follow the underfunding of Black Mississippi citizens.

Point 4.
Don’t think that this is the first time that Jackson has pointed out the flaws in the water treatment system. Don’t think that this is the first time that Jackson has requested funding from the State. Read. After being turned down by the State, Jackson even attempted to TAX ITSELF AND PAY FOR THE WATER TREATMENT. IT WAS STRIPPED OF THE FUNDING BY THE STATE – REFUSING TO ACCEPT THE TAXES THAT JACKSON VOTED IN FOR ITSELF.

So, until you grasp Points 1-4, I don’t want to hear anything about blaming the Biden-Harris Administration for the water crisis in Jackson.

This is a crisis of REPUBLICAN DELIBERATE NEGLECT.
This is a crisis of DELIBERATE SYSTEMATIC RACISM.

And, what you’re NOT going to do, is shift the blame off who is responsible – THE REPUBLICANS THAT RUN THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI.
