It’s reminiscent of and maybe worse than Flint. Residents and homeowners in Jackson Mississippi, in the United States of America, can’t drink or bathe in their water. The water is so bad that it damages the water system and pipes in the buildings. The city could fix it. The federal government allotted funds to fix it. So why hasn’t it been fixed?
Jackson Mississippi is located amidst surrounding predominately “white” areas with higher property values. The wealthy have their eye on Jackson as they know that if they moved the African Americans out, they could buy the property cheaply and resell it at a higher value. They tried political pressure. They tried intimidation. None of it worked, so now they are making it unlivable.
