Here’s an interesting thing to ponder: based on 2010 census figures, when Detroit gets an Emergency Manager, 49% of Michigan African Americans will have lost their representative government and will be under the rule of an Emergency Manager.

City Population % African American # of African Americans
Benton Harbor 10,038 89.2% 8,954
Detroit 713,777 82.7% 590,294
Flint 102,434 56.6% 57,978
Pontiac 59,515 52.1% 31,007

    I live in Memphis,Tn. I think this is a shabby law trying to suppress voters.I know that if this allowed in Detroit, then this could spread like wildfire. I was wondering is there a petition to sign to help stop this from going any farther?
