No construction, all destruction.
The Great Replacement came to Jackson, the capital city of Mississippi. A little more than 50 years ago, Jackson was majority white. The civilization these white people was for a far different demographic than the racial group that inherited the city once white flight created a black majority.
Sustaining the infrastructure they were bequeathed via white flight (curiously, wherever white people fled to in metro Jackson, they created thriving civilizations out of the wilderness), the now nearly 90% black city of Jackson watches as the civilization regresses to the African mean.
Kersey next quotes extensively from a whole shitpile of NYT boo-hoo-hooing over the sinister racist implications of this shiftless-man-caused disaster:
Once again, Lavern Avant was spending her day scouring Mississippi’s capital city, hoping to get her hands on a basic necessity that she and many of her neighbors had gone without for weeks.
She made her newly familiar rounds, driving in and out of parking lots, picking up cases of bottled water for herself, her husband and her neighbors. This had become her new normal since mid-February, when a strong winter storm blanketed a wide swath of the state in ice and nearly collapsed the notoriously rickety municipal water system.
It was wearing her down, she said, and was “more than a mental challenge.”
The crisis, while this time protracted, is not new in Jackson, a city of about 160,000 where a majority of residents, including Ms. Avant, are Black. In Jackson, boil-water notices are common and an enduring municipal drama has played out for decades, as white flight, an eroding tax base and poor management have left the remaining residents with old and broken pipes, but without the public funding to fix them.
Mayor Chokwe Lumumba,
Oh good God.
a Democrat and African-American,
Any further questions?
has estimated that modernizing the city’s water infrastructure could cost $2 billion. Last week, he asked Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican who is white, for $47 million to help repair the city’s damaged water system.
In an interview this week, Mr. Lumumba said he hoped the current crisis would finally push both state and city officials in the direction of a long-term solution.
He’p us, he’p us, Blue Eyed Debbils! We’s in trubbah baaaad!!
“There’s a saying that you should allow no crisis to go to waste,” he said. “It’s crises like these that really allow us to take stock of conditions of where we are as a city, where we are as a state and hopefully it allows us to build the resolve to address it.”
What you need to be taking stock of is exactly what the fuck it is about you people that leaves you wholly incapable of creating a civilization on your own more complex than mud huts, grass skirts, and obtaining meals via pulling grubworms out of a hole in the ground with a stick and eating them raw…or even just maintaining one after it’s been handed to you by Whypeepo as a total turn-key operation.
