NAACP Data on Dismal Conditions Faced by Milwaukee’s Black Citizens

Filed under: Poverty,Wisconsin Class Warfare — millerlf @ 3:47 pm

The NAACP issued a report in June of this year called Milwaukee Today: An Occasional Report of the NAACP.

As poverty significantly increases in Milwaukee and around the nation the data presented in this report exposes the dire conditions facing African Americans in our city. While the lack of response by too many leaders is appalling, other Milwaukee leaders have willingly supported and encouraged draconian measures by Tea Party Republicans. This is criminal.

Included in the report is an extensive list of the problems faced particularly among Milwaukee’s African American citizens. For example-

“Wisconsin incarcerates Blacks at nearly eleven (11) times the rate at which it incarcerates Whites.”
