Jesse Jackson calling for protests in Detroit

Really? And where was his "outrage" when Governor Granholm assigned an Emergency Financial Manager for Flint? In reality, Detroit is in worse shape than Flint was when Granholm assigned an Emergency Financial Manager. So where was his outrage then?

And people don't see the politics behind this, that is what the shame is. Jackson didn't raise an eyebrow when Flint had an emergency manager assigned, when the mayor was replaced, Jackson wasn't there to demand protests saying voter's rights were being violated.

I'm all for protests, but this one I call bullshit on. Because that is what it is. The ONLY 2 differences between Flint's situation and Detroit's are: 1. Detroit is in worse financial stress than Flint was, and at the time of Flint's emergency manager assignment we had a Democratic Governor, this time, our Governor is a Republican. Like I said, where was the "outrage" over this same thing happening to Flint? It wasn't there because of who the Governor was.

I just get so tired of the stupidity of crap like this. As far as I'm concerned, if this is so "wrong" for Detroit, then it was "wrong" for Flint also, yet, he utter a word against it then.

Personally I think the Emergency Manager thing should be declared unconstitutional in the first place, It smacks of old Germany not the USA, And what is more these emergency managers need to be investigated as it only actually worked once and from what I have learned after reading up on this, there is the matter of missing funds after they took the reigns in these cities, The people in Michigan did not vote for this and should have taken it upon themselves to raise some holy hell the first time this happened, Someone like Jesse Jackson should not have to tell them they should be protesting this. it should be a given, As for Jesse, he is a mixed bag... he has done good and he has done bad, He usually shows up where he is asked to show up by someone, Personally i think it is time the dude retired and left the shit stirring to the younger generation, But apparently someone decided to bring him in to get things finally rolling up there,

Jackson is all about politics, and makes a living off it and racism.

There are few other things that could play in. Detroit is larger and much more high profile so maybe he didn't know about the situation in Flint. The other may have to do with the differences in the racial demographics of the two cities' governments and populations
