When whites abandon one suburb for another, the character of that suburb falls upon the new majority population. The same truth is for a county as well. Clayton County GA, for example, went from 90 percent white in 1980 to almost 90 percent Black in 2012. Where a thriving community with top schools once existed, you now have in Clayton County the lowest property values in all of Georgia and the worst school system.
Mute testimony to what happens when the productive members of a community say 'enough' and move, leaving those who cause the problems and are not able to make a city run on their own are placed in the position of being responsible for their own destiny .
The Black Undertow folks. It's real. Damn real. Dressing it up as some sort of treatise on 'environmental racism' is covering up the real truth.
Don't bother with this turkey.
