Kids poisoned by Lead in Flint Michigan

Lead Poisoning of children and legionnaires disease: a case of Environmental Racism in the City of Flint Michigan.

The governor thought it more expedient to allow the children of the working class poor of Flint to drink poison rather than risk a deficit in the budget.

The governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder had to be shamed into action by the national media, regarding the lead poisoning of Flint’s children. However, he continues to do nothing substantial to alleviate the problem. The one thing that he seems to be doing and very well is blame the failure that precipitated the crisis on the management originally appointed by him. What kind of leader blames his staff for is own lack of oversight? The fact that Rick Snyder knew about the lead crisis well before it went national and did nothing about is criminal. He must be held accountable
