“THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT US”
THE TWO MICHAELS
If you haven’t heard about the situation in Flint, Michigan, where the town’s drinking water has been contaminated with lead and other chemicals, you have really been living under a rock.
This is a major health issue, a major political scandal, a major “blaming you, not me” scenario.
Flint, Michigan has a population of roughly 100,000 residents.
Of these, roughly 10,000 are children.
They all have been exposed to water contaminated with corrosive materials and lead.
Many times, songs are vehicles of expression for the people.
I found this video through Michael Moore‘s Facebook page.
I’m sure the “King of Pop” wasn’t thinking about Flint, yet, how “right on target” are this song’s lyrics.
To make matters worse, it seems that Flint isn’t the only city with major water problems.
It seems it could happen anywhere where community policies are driven by greed.
The Flint water crisis is a drinking water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, United States that started in April 2014.
After Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water (which was sourced from Lake Huron as well as the Detroit River) to the Flint River, its drinking water had a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger.
The corrosive Flint River water caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, causing extremely elevated levels of lead. In Flint, between 6,000 and 12,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead and they may experience a range of serious health problems. The water change is also a possible cause of an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the county that has killed 10 people and affected another 77.

Flint Water Crisis (Michael Moore)
In 2011, the Governor of Michigan took over the city of Flint, a majority-African American city where almost half the population lives below the poverty line. He installed an un-elected “financial manager” to run the city for him.
In 2014, the Governor decided to switch Flint’s drinking water system from the Great Lakes to the toxic Flint River.
This is for the 102,000 men, women and children of Flint who are still being poisoned and lied to.
We ALL are ONE!!
