Black Agenda Report says city takeovers are about dispossessing black and brown folks so corporations can put their tentacle into the furthest nook and cranny of local governments. Atlantic City's mayor is threatening to declare bankruptcy. The villain here was an emergency financial manager system, a dictatorship that was put in place by the governor over not just Flint, Michigan, and all Michigan cities, but by all of the heavily black cities. The greatest impact of this creeping power of corporations over local affairs IS on the local schools. That's the case in Michigan, where the same emergency financial manager system has been in place over the Detroit schools, has caused them to deteriorate in ways that makes Detroit look like a third world country. So SCHOOLS have been the REAL FOCUS because education is the only path to income equality.
