    Michael Moore is so stupid. The majority of politicians in Flint were black
    democrats as is Obama, but I gues their just uncle toms or something right?

    Whew, Michael Moore? Saying angry anti-racist stuff? There’s no way this
    won’t do huge negatives on YouTube.

    The problem with Flint’s water has been known for many months now. What has
    documentary filmmaker Michael Moore done about it, other than tweeting his
    indignation?

    No, they just fucked up and tried to hide their asses. It wasn’t because
    they were black you fucking race baiter. He’s a white version of Al

    This comment section…what a bunch of attention whores. You know he is
    correct right? The whole billion dollars tax breaks, the switching of the
    water…the fact that they hid it.

    It wasn’t a hate crime, it was a Federal Disaster Assistance shake-down.
    It’s always about the money. Those fuckers knew they’d get a ton of money
    as soon as this crap reached Crisis level. And they got it, exactly as
    planned

    Who knew? The Democratic mayor? The Democratic city council? The Democratic
    financial manager? No, it’s definitely the Republicans fault, even though
    Flint has been run by Democrats for decades. Now let me distract you from
    how ridiculous I’m being by race baiting.

    He said black city AND a poor city. Poor white people are considered the
    same as black people. It’s not race baiting. If you know anything about the
    US it’s that there are different classes of citizens.

    THANK YOU IMMENSELY Michael Moore for pointing out that the TURNCOAT
    LIAR-IN-CHIEF
    (Clinton-style for post-presidential obscene wealth garnering) who has been
    THE
    utter POLITICAL SHAM of the 21st century (only so far, because we have yet
    to see
    what the Political Whore Liar for a Greenback, $hillary, has up her pants
    suit sleeves – and legs), the MILITARY
    INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX’S and all other members of CORRUPT CORPORATE AMERICA’S
    BOUGHT-AND-SOLD PRESIDENT and CORPORATE PROXY MURDERER and SHILL-IN-CHIEF,
    “FELLOW GOOD OL’ BOY BARRY-FOR-SALE” OBAMA, so very TIMOROUSLY sipped a
    mere TEASPOON AT MOST of Flint’s TOXIC WATER to take it OFF
    THE FRONT PAGE so that another total SHAM of a “PROGRESSIVE” DEMOCRAT
    NAMED $HILLARY could ascend to Oligarchic Corporate America’s newly gilded
    throne in what used to be called The People’s House, but what is now The
    Whitewashed House/Presidential Palace in Washington, DC, a SWAMP of a city
    (literally,
    figuratively and amorally) that is the head of a vicious but rotting snake
    of the massively internationally funded unconstitutional betrayal of the
    American People. Obama SHOULD BE FORCED TO DRINK, COOK HIS FOOD, AND BATHE
    in Flint water until he dies from lead poisoning. Then and only then will
    the poisoning of destitute African-American CHILDREN and ALL other utterly
    impoverished and hopeless Americans be taken
    seriously in this BRUTALLY DARWINIAN OLIGARCHY that surpasses the fiction
    of The Hunger Games.

    He’s right, the way they covered this up and the way Rick Snyder tried to
    devalue researches coming up with harsh conclusions was disgusting, this
    would not happen in a town that is richer, they did this because they
    thought they could get away with this.

    if this is Moore’s hometown, why isn’t he out there helping? he’s
    capitalizing on a tragedy for political purposes to sell his art. he takes
    tragedies and mocks them for money

    Flint isn’t a “black city”… Isn’t it amazing how they targeted this water
    crisis just to the black families and not the 50,000+ white ones in Flint?
    Yup, clearly a “hate crime”…

    May very well have been racist, but it was entirely driven by monetary gain

    Don’t go asking in your ignorance what Michael Moore has done about the
    Flint crisis. His film “Roger and Me” was about the destruction of Flint
    and the correlated race and class issues, and it came out in 1989. The lead
    in the water crisis is recent, but when it comes to sounding the
    appropriate alarm about what has been done to the residents of Flint, Moore
    has been there for literally decades. Too bad most people don’t want to
    listen.

    wow.. so Moore is a PC yuppy now too? Im a liberal, but the state of social
    issues in this country are getting so messed up… Flint is almost 40%
    white… the fuck you mean it was a racial hate crime in flint… I swear,
    ever since BLM, they treat blacks like they matter more than anyone else
    now. If something bad happens to white/asian/mexican, like cop shooting or
    environmental disaster(which there are much more of in the white dominated
    Midwest), its all good, but it something happens to a black
    person/community OMG THIS IS AN OUTRAGE, NATIONWIDE PROTESTS FOR MONTHS,
    NEWS COVERAGE 24/7!

    Usually I dig what Michael Moore has to say, but the reason Flint got any
    attention was because there are quite a few white people living there.
    The moment you make it a “black issue” Michael Moore you have fucked the
    process of fixing it. No one gives a shit about black issues, they just
    make fun of them. You saying that it is a scary intended attack on black
    people has helped fuck over Flint. MI
    This is a shitty management issue and the fact that Flint is so poor to
    begin with. Hell that whole area in MI is in near ruin.

    I recommend Michael Moore publicly reverse on what he is saying here.

    He’s probably overplaying the race aspect here, but demographically
    speaking, Flint is 56% black while the Michigan government is much more
    white and old. Maybe this just proves the larger socio-ecomonic problems we
    face as a country that minorities are more likely to be poor, and therefore
    voiceless.

    hes not saying this is a hate crime on blacks… its a hate crime on the
    POOR. money= power in the political system we have nowadays, which leads
    politicians to not give any fucks about those not cutting their paycheck.

    Wait a second… I thought the liberals told us that government would
