Majority black cities, ruled by black elected officials, are now free from the consequences of said democratically elected black officals. No moral agency… no consequences for what under black rule, because white racism is the real reason for bad sanitation… as our federal government declares that not providing sanitation for impoverished, minority communities is a violation of their civil rights.
Feds force Alabama to treat sewage in Black Belt: 7 takeaways, by Dennis Pillion, Al.com, June 9, 2023
The federal government last month agreed to call a halt to a civil rights investigation on the condition that Alabama finally do something about wastewater pooling in yards in rural Lowndes County.
The investigation targeted the Alabama Department of Public Health. And it marked the first-ever civil rights settlement between the feds and a state over environmental justice, and probably the first time a state health department has ever been forced to provide sewer access for people who can’t afford it on their own.
The precedent-setting agreement will likely have lasting impacts in Alabama and across the country, as the government declares that not providing sanitation for impoverished, minority communities is a violation of their civil rights.
Here are seven takeaways from we know so far:
- A long-standing problem will finally be addressed
Perhaps first and foremost, thousands of Lowndes County residents will escape an endless cycle of sewage overflows and potential health hazards. Many homes in Lowndes are connected to septic tanks or sewer systems that don’t work, in part due to the geology in the area, and some resort to “straight piping” waste away from their homes. These conditions have caused generations of Lowndes residents to move away, tanked property values in the area and hampered any kind of economic development in the area between Selma and Montgomery.

Black-Run America (BRA), indeed. From cradle to grave, all problems blacks create—in absence of whites—is the fault of white people. Blacks now have the civil right to destroy cities they democratically dominate.
