Oh, you S.O.B. I really wish you would be completely honest. You’re not sorry about anything you did. You letting “your people” down is the least of your worries. Next time just say what you feel. Like, “I’m sorry people finally noticed your lives are disposable to me. I apologize to all of the people of Flint who feel their health and well-being is more important to me than money.”
You knew exactly what you were doing. Appointing multiple jerks into positions where they don’t belong (like Keyvn D. Orr) without “your people’s” vote. Everyone knew that water was disgusting and unsightly but you made the switch anyway (again, without voting), didn’t you?
I hope everyone realizes this was no mistake. Clouding people’s minds with your lies. Forcing them to drink tainted water for 2 years for the love of money.
Did you drink that water? Would you let your family bathe in that water? Would you even let them swim in the Flint river? You don’t have high levels of lead in your blood or traces of Legionnaires' disease so I’m going to take that as a no.
To the people who think this has absolutely nothing to do with race: About 100,000 people live in Flint, MI. “Flint is a very poor, majority African-American city…” Michael Moore said it. Since when did people of power (mainly republicans) care about the well-being of Black, poor people? Yes, other races live there but when you’re living in a predominantly Black area, you’re treated as one of them. This is why Snyder experimented with their lives. This is why he didn’t care to let them vote. This is why he ignored their cries of despair. Water is something vital to human life. Unless you know for sure that water is safe, don’t fix it. You’re going to believe what you want and I hate to make comparisons but if it were a predominantly white, middle-class or higher city in Michigan, contaminated water would not be an issue (maybe just extreme douche-baggery).
To the people saying dumb stuff like, “Where’s France’s ‘Pray for Flint’ posts: Shut up, ignoramus. Where are your posts? Better yet, you live here, so how much water did you donate to people in Flint since you care so much? I don’t remember seeing any of you change your default pictures to Flint’s seal. So like I said, shut up.
