There was a storm.
Said storm chewed up a bunch of muddy water.
The water plant had trouble with this. It had trouble with it in no small part because despite this being a common feature in that area the engineering, maintenance, improvement and upkeep was not done to keep things under control.
The system failed.
We were then told this was the fault of "white flight" even though both the chief water engineer and mayor are black; ergo, both of the people directly responsible either screwed their own race on purpose or black people aren't competent to run a water plant and city government or black people can't fund their own government.
Pick at least one, because at least one of those has to be true.
None of these are the "fault" of people deciding they're not going to get repeatedly shit on by those calling them "racists" and, if said people wish to continue doing that along with "enhancing" crime and other acts they'll simply pull up their tent stakes and leave.
If said black people who remain really are as good or better (that's "diversity", right?) as the whites who left things should improve because their quality is equal or better than that of the white people who left.
Instead the infrastructure collapsed which proves at least one of the above three is true.
Which is it?
I'm not sure -- except, to add to the picture, the Army Corps showed up and, apparently, turned the plant back on -- and now its working.
Wait a second.... we were told it was irretrievably damaged and couldn't be restarted; that it needed to be replaced on someone else's dime.
That was obviously a lie since it is now working.
So which of the above is it?
Further, since its rather clear that in some way fraud occurred and so did extortion where are the handcuffs for both the mayor and water plant "engineer" who lied and tried to rip off a billion dollars plus from the taxpayer?
You wish to call me a racist?
I don't care anymore, and until and unless I see life prison sentences for those black people who tried to run this scam I shall never care again about anyone screams about "race."
It is not my duty to provide for those who assert that choosing people based on their skin color or choice of pronouns is or should be a consideration in any way and then, when they wind up with all of the levers of power, including control of the engineering, they can't manage to find the "ON" switch. Then, to top it off, they try to rip off everyone else to the tune of a billion or more dollars while playing the race card.
PS: Our local area here in Tennessee recently had a big storm. Said storm chewed up a bunch of muddy water. Said chewed up stuff clogged the intakes of the water plant. The result was a boil water order because pressure in the system was momentarily lost, but somehow, magically, the people working here were able to clear the intakes and various filters that got clogged up and then find the "ON" switch. I wonder what the difference was?
