Something’s gonna trouble the water….

racist_water_0711.jpgThis just takes the cake. From Time.com:

To this day, Jerry Kennedy only does laundry when it rains. For the first 54 years of his life, he lived without running water, and rainstorms were the only way he could collect enough water to wash his clothes.
But Kennedy isn’t from some far-off rural outpost. He was born and raised in the Coal Run neighborhood of Zanesville, Ohio — a former coal-mining center of 25,000 in the eastern part of the state — just a few hundred feet from a municipal water line. Kennedy, now 58, is black. His neighbors, who did not have running water for more than 50 years, are also black. On July 10, the U.S. District Court of Ohio awarded them almost $10.9 million, ruling that they had been denied access to public water because of their race.

I…..I am pretty speechless right now, honestly. No wait: they should have gotten more. Yeah, that’s about all I got to say on it.

You're surprised. Really?

I've lived in Alabama and now I live in Ohio. Hands down, Ohio is the most blatantly racist place I've ever lived and they just don't care to change.
