Nearly Half of Detroit Water Customers Can’t Pay Their Bill

CBS Detroit, June 23, 2014

It’s a basic human right: water. But could the United Nations soon help the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department provide the service to struggling customers?

Water department spokeswoman Curtrise Garner says it’s a possibility–but for now, the water bills must be paid.

“We do have programs that do help those that are just totally in need; can’t afford it–but we also know that there are also people who can’t afford it would can not pay [sic] and we know this because, once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full. So we do know that that has become a habit as well,” said Garner.

Garner said the reality is that nearly half of Detroit Water and Sewerage customers can’t pay their bills; and that has led activists to lobby the UN to step up and take action.

According to the Free Press, the average Detroit water bill is now $75 a month–much higher than the nation’s average rate of about $40.

    Detroit – 1960 – 90+% White = Success
    DIE-Troit – 2014 – 87% black = Fail

    The same all around the world throughout recorded (and unrecorded) human history

    • TruthBeTold

      A few years back, a newspaper did a story about the deterioration of a public school. The story included a photo of the black principle standing in front of the school which looked like it was uninhabitable.

      The slant of the story was that this largely minority schools was neglected and under funded.

      All I could think was how did it get this bad before anyone took notice? Did the principle not see the deterioration going on around him? Did he not report it? Did he not ask school maintenance workers to basic upkeep?

      They think stuff just happens. They can’t figure out they’re the problem.

      • Frank_DeScushin

        The underfunded minority school meme is a load of bull that Liberals and minorities buy at face value because, to them, that can be the only explanation for why minority schools are much worse off. If you look at the amount spent per pupil, though, you’ll see that black cities like Washington, DC and black counties like Prince George’s County, MD spend among the most per pupil (largely subsidized by the state and federal government). Like all Liberal racial lies, the underfunded minority school is, for the mot part, a lie.

        • ElComadreja

          You can’t change the Bell Curve no matter how much money you waste trying.

      • MBlanc46

        They get the money. They just p*ss it away.

      • disqus_irCdmAu8It

        100% correct, Washington DC schools are the best funded schools in America, yet, they turnout some of the dumbest students. More money does not equal better schools, it means better paid UNION members.

        • LIBERTYSINCURSION

          True, and if it’s run by blacks as we see in many former American cities. It also means a massive top heavy administration that sucks up 65% of every dollar before it even makes it’s way to the Unions let alone the teachers.

      • Black Swan

        They’ll keep going and won’t stop until whites are bled dry because they haven’t a clue how a functioning economy works. After whites have been bled dry and the EBT cards stop being loaded, whites will be blamed by blacks for the ensuring food riots, violence and chaos.

        See how it works? We lose no matter what we do. Blacks are merely a useful idiot class, completely expendable, and being used as a cudgel against white America. They do whatever they are allowed to get away with, including viciously assaulting whites with few to any consequences and no media coverage.

        • Physical racial conflict is coming. It is by design. They’ve removed all the cages from the zoo and mixed up all the animals (only in white countries) and there’s going to be blood. It is by design, their design, not ours. The only question is whether whites want to be a numerical majority or in the minority when it happens.

          • Nimadan

            “The longer it takes to happen, the worse our position will be.”

            I figured that out about ten years ago. Unfortunately, somewhere between half and two-thirds of Whites are in denial that there’s any problem at all. And most of those who are aware are trying to fix the problem which is an exercise in futility since it can’t be fixed.

          • Perhaps not fixed as in reversed easily but we can make sure it happens on our timetable, not theirs. They want us to do nothing. If we do nothing, in a few decades our country will be Mexico. It will be run by Mexican communist kosher commissars and that’s if we just sit back and do nothing. If we do nothing, the violence comes to us because we will end up like white minorities in African countries or like the everyday terrorized citizens of crime-ridden murderous central American countries. They want this to come to a head a few decades from now when it’s too late for us to put up a struggle about it. We need to make sure it happens now, when we have the numbers to come out on top.

          • Nimadan

            “Perhaps not fixed as in reversed easily but we can make sure it happens on our timetable, not theirs.”

            We could still win the Collapse if it happens soon. Time is not on our side though…

            “We need to make sure all whites understand who did this to them, … because until we deal with that problem and that threat, all these other threats will simply keep coming back.”

            The fact that we have to explain everything to low-IQ Whites, and somehow get their assent, is one of the reasons we’re in this mess. I have long been of the opinion that the success of the “Universal Manhood Suffrage” movement of the early 1800s was a catastrophe for America, the West and the White race. Giving the vote to dumb White guys set a precedent for the extension of voting rights to other classes of mental incompetents which is still plaguing us to this day.

          • Here are the first five steps to fixing it:

            1. The immediate arrest of all those on American soil with 1/16th or greater Jewish ancestry or anyone with dual Israeli citizenship.
            2. The simultaneous, forceful return of all broadcast outlets, major radio stations, etc, to sane management for purposes of spreading actual truth to a people long kept in the dark and fed lies.
            3. The seizure of all Jewish assets in America.
            4. The rapid evacuation of all arrested Jews to Israel. All seized Jewish assets will not be used for their repatriation but rather will be forfeit to the state, to be doled out as best serves the interests of national security and preserving a homeland for whites. We will use it to offset a portion of the collosal cost of repatriating these tens of millions of Mexicans we’ve been flooded with.
            5. Whites will require our own territory with a meaningful right to exclude. The right to own a house means nothing if you’re not allowed to tell people to leave. To that end, blacks, responsible for so much violent crime and stupid ghetto bullshi.t will all be deported. It could be considered inhumane to deport them to Africa, so instead we will deport them to Israel. All of them. And Israel will take them with a smile and open arms because diversity is good.

            That would be a good start.

          • Nimadan

            I’d support this if it were possible, but in my experience,
            Whites are even more spaced out about the Chosenites
            than they are about blacks.

      • chuck_2012

        you said it correctly…negros do not think when it comes to this stuff…they are only able to focus on white women and fried chicken and where to get their next hit of crack.

      Failure never seems to bother Blacks in Africa where there aren’t any Whites.
      They live in squalor as if it were natural to them because it is.

      • Just as happy as peas in a pod

      • 1stworlder

        They have nothing to compare their failure to. They do graffiti because they know they are not even smart enough to destroy what was built.

        • bilderbuster

          Left to their own devices they’re not even smart enough to manufacture spray paint.

          • ElComadreja

            Or construct the buildings they deface with it.

      • Black Swan

        Why should it bother them? They’re never held accountable for their actions. All black violence, perfidy and failures are blamed on whites without us being able to do much about it.

        All of this isn’t really about blacks, it is about the destruction of whites. Blacks’ role in the larger plan to genocide the white race is to weaken white America by destroying white cities, neighborhoods and schools and bleeding us whites dry through entitlement transfers.

        Just as planned.

  • dd121

    Blacks think everything they get should be free. It is in the jungle.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      It has everything to do with the evolution of the negroid race in the tropical jungles and savannas of sub-Saharan Africa. Food was so abundant that blacks didn’t have to do much, if anything in order to obtain it. On the other hand, Northeast Asians and whites were selected for intelligence because feeding themselves and their offspring was significantly harder. This was because of the harsh ecological constraints imposed by the arctic and subarctic climates they were forced to live under. As a result, blacks evolved a predisposition to high time preference behavior or a “gibsmuhdat” mentality.

      • dd121

        Sounds plausible to me.

        • Alucard_the_last

          It is plausible. Japan is already rebuilding without any world assistance from their triple disaster (earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown) and Haiti is still a shithole with millions living in tents despite billions in aid.

          • RisingReich

            Hati at this point will forever be a dung pile.

            Dear White women,

            Please stop posting photos of you surrounded by niglet monkeys on your “mission” to Hait on your dating profiles as if it were some great display of how great you are. It completely debases and degrades you despite how “attractive and great of a conversationalist” you are.

            It just shows everyone now truly brainwashed and clueless you’ve become.

          • dd121

            There was a very clear sub-text to the pictures of rotting corpses in the streets of Haiti that had not been picked up and we’re not going to be picked up. My thought was that these “people” truly are savages.

          • Alucard_the_last

            I have formally lost all hope for these “people”. All around the world, anything negative somehow involves one of the negroid races. It is a lost hope. They aren’t equal and that is a fact not a feeling.

          • LIBERTYSINCURSION

            Its always been a fact, and even a feeling to those who force themselves to deny such facts! In short, it is reality!

          • Black Swan

            Tell that to the celebrities too who adopt black children as an accessory giving the media lots of ammunition to flaut this as something normal. It is not.

          • RisingReich

Meanwhile, despite its quake being 63 times stronger (10^1.8), Chile has almost fully recovered, and with very little help from abroad. Also, Chile not only qualified for the World Cup, it has advanced to the playoffs.

    Water isn’t a human right, it’s a human need. Humans have to work to access and keep water supplies going.

    • Water is a “right” only if the residents of Detroit are willing to drink untreated water out of Lake Erie and live in their own waste. If they want treated drinking water, working showers and flush toilets, they need to pay their bills. These bills cover things like water treatment and maintenance of the municipal water mains.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        “If they want treated drinking water, working showers and flush toilets, they need to pay their bills.”
        If you’re white, that’s what you’re there for.

        • connorhus

          Ya to be fair most cities and towns used to provide a well or fountains for the residents. Ben Franklin used to write about public wells and fountains all the time and how to determine which ones could be used safely. So if they want water provided an outside public fountain per every 20 blocks or so should be what they get.

  • Puggg

    The Detroit water bills are almost twice as high as the national average, I bet because so many in Detroit won’t pay. So they have to make it up on the customers that do pay.

    Can’t pay water bills but they can buy all their other junk they love so much.

    • Sympathy is totally wasted on people who can pay, but won’t.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      If you were to ask most blacks in Detroit where there water comes from, most likely they’d mention God or magic. There is no understanding of the infrastructure that goes into utilities. They have no concept of planning for monthly expenses. Tricked out wheels for a low rider ’79 Impala and $1500. sneakers are not wise ways to use your welfare money.

      • bilderbuster

        They steal those things.
        They use the welfare money for the important stuff like dope and Hos.

      • Whitetrashgang

  • logwarrior

    My water bill in the suburbs of Youngstown, OH is about $140.00 per month. The “50% add on fee” is only there to rob the whites in the burbs and cover non-payment by the large African majority in the city proper.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      If you’re white, you must pay for those who play. Hubby used to like to give to the electric company’s wintertime “Share The Heat” program when he could afford it. Even though I’m sure there were some whites who benefited from this charity, I was glad when he stopped, knowing that the majority of the recipients were those who literally “din do nuffins” to get heat in the first place. They can freeze for all I care. It’s warmer in Africa anyways. 🙂

    Ugh…”basic human right.” Just like it’s a “basic human right” to have free healthcare, it’s a “basic human right” to be able to marry someone of the same sex, etc. Anytime the left wants something, they claim that they’re somehow being denied a “basic human right.” It’s the old Marxist game of “label someone an oppressor.”

    There’s no such thing as a “basic human right.” Rights only exist within the context of a society that can uphold them. It’s not a “basic human right” to have functional indoor plumbing, since that’s what they’re really talking about here. That requires people to administer and maintain systems to provide it, and no one is obligated to do that for someone who can’t compensate them. Humanity survived without indoor plumbing for centuries, so unless they want to argue that everyone was being denied a “basic human right” for all those years, such an assertion is ridiculous.

      On a serious note it is an absolutely horrible idea for us to allow the UN to do anything inside the US borders.

The reason they don’t pay the bill is the city doesn’t turn dead beats water off. Start cutting off the water and they will find a way to pay their damned bills and then maybe they can get the bill down closer to the national average instead of trying to stick the few that do pay with the entire amount.

  • IstvanIN

    Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the only God-given rights, everything else is a want or a need, but not a right. A sanitary system comprising potable water and a sewerage system is not a right, it is the result of men coming together to improve the quality of life for their fellow citizens. When said citizens decide collectively to no longer support that system the system collapses. Look at the sewer systems in Zimbabwe, Angola or Mozambique, once the White man left they fell into disrepair. Same with Detroit. We need separation from Afreakans, they are not us and never will be us..

  • When the Detroit residents in arrears on their water bills hurry down to the office to settle up to avoid having their water turned off, they’re probably going there wearing expensive weave, hair hats, and wielding the newest sail foams. Going there in Escalades with chrome spinners and custom high powered subwoofers.

        The US would certainly be a much better place to live if 100,000,000 nonwhites were culled from the population. Wages would rise, housing prices would go down, income taxes would go down, crime would go down, job opportunities would increase, pollution would decrease and their would be more wide, open spaces to explore.

          The non-White population of the earth doubles itself every 30 years, meaning that by 2100, only 3% of the earth population will be white if current demographic trends and conditions continue. In 1900, Whites made up 30% of the global population.

          Imagine the White population if there had been no War Between the States?

          Some 360,000 Northerners died, and around 250,000 Southerners perished. The overall death toll of approximately 610,000 hides a disproportionate effect on the white populations of the North and the South. The North’s white population of 22 million means that its 360,000 dead represented 1.6 percent of the total. The South, with its white population of 5.5 million, suffered a loss in excess of 4.5 percent. This was to set back the growth of the southern white population by decades, a factor which counts against them to this day.

          No more White on White wars! No more wars for lost causes that cull the White male population.

        • Anglokraut

          I figured that Africa has around a billion, and southeast Asia has another 3 billion right there. Don’t know about the Mestizos of the Americas, but there has got to be a billion of them as well.

          A billion non-whites here, a billion there, and soon you are talking about a demographic catastrophe…

  • TheCogitator

    Why would blacks pay their water bill when they know that white people will pay it for them? They may not be too bright, but they have enough animal cunning to understand that.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Well, they’re kind of in the habit now! I mean, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. They’ve been sitting around on their fat behinds since 1964 waiting for somebody else to do everything for them. When it comes to eventually getting somebody else to pay their way, their batting average is pretty close to perfect.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full.

    Then the headline should read:

    Nearly Half of Detroit Water Customers Won’t Pay Their Bill

    Or…

    Half of Detroit wants YOU to pay their water bill for them!!

    Why should they pay for water when the fevgov pays for everything else for them? They’ve got more important things to spend their $$ on than lowly water…like $280 athletic shoes, XBoxes, iPhones and data plans, plasma screen TVs and gold earrings.

    Who are YOU to deny them these things?

    “It’s a basic human right: water.”

    Yeah, says who? The UN?

    Clean, potable water, delivered to your home, is a commodity not a right. Someone has to process it and provide the means for it to be delivered. No one has a right to demand something someone else has worked and paid for.

    Don’t like it?

    Go get your water from one of the largest freshwater sources in the world: Lake Michigan!!

    I say we shut off the water supply to the UN. Maybe they’ll leave the U.S.

    • You forgot hair extensions, glued-on fingernails and removable gold “teef” grilles. Those are apparently now “basic human rights”.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        So is bail money for the latest baby daddy!!

        Even the gold “teef” and grillz can be sold.

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

      “No one has a right to demand something someone else has worked and paid for” – Wrong! Black people have that right, and then some in fact!

      Why? Well, read for yourself -> “Black people built this country through their unpaid brutal enslavement which is where all of America’s wealth today came from. Black people are responsible for literally every gain this country has ever made by being the forced financiers of the nations investments. Which means America owes the African American it’s very prosperity. Without them, America would be nothing more than a 3rd world back water European outpost.” – QUOTE: – An old 5th Grade Social Studies Textbook Woodland Hills School District.

      – There you have it. It’s apparently a fact, we owe any and everything we have to black people, including water. Just try to think of it from the point of view of those who write our children’s history books. They already paid for that water 200 years ago and we’re just being racist and cruel by making them pay again.

  • When the slaves were freed, they thought everything would now be free and that like the plantation owner, they would not have to work. (Actual the planter did work, but it was brain work, something blacks don’t understand.) Because of their low IQs they still have that belief, and liberals still indulge them in that belief. We can no longer afford our black “pets” who should be repatriated to Africa, or barring that, be made to do physical labor like housecleaning and janitorial work–all of them, including the world star hip hop crowd.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Blacks were made to do all the hard physical labor, especially after the immigration restrictions of 1924. The only problem was that the elites got sick of their antiquated farm equipment and decided to import Mexican mestizos to do all the hard physical labor instead. This allowed the blacks to sit around all day, collect welfare and crank out kids. The blacks developed the handout mentality from LBJ, who gave blacks a “little something” so they could vote Democratic for the next 200 years.

          The LBJ Ranch is about 15 miles west of his boyhood home. On the ranch is his birthplace and the one room school house he went to. The cemetery he is in, is a private cemetery that the family still owns. For what would have been his 100th birthday in August of 2008, the National Park Service opened up the office he used.

    If water is a basic right, what about food? Why not let the UN pay the bills of those in Detroit for water, food, and what about beer? And what about TV? And cable? And…?

    • IstvanIN

      The UN pay its bills with our money.

      • Exactly: the UN doesn’t have any money. They steal it from us. Fortunately, the UN also doesn’t have any power.

  • Magician

    I wonder how funny it would be, if we send all refugees to Detroit and let them live in Detroit.

    A couple of benefits I can think of –

    Because houses are very cheap, it won’t cost the government much
    The refugees will badly want to go back to their homelands in a couple of months after they arrive here

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Great idea, but you’d be violating their Civil Rights. Your Civil Rights aren’t important. Theirs’ are. That’s how the government sees it, anyway. Oh, and you can pay for all of it, too! Including the a_ _ holes who make this all happen.

      • r j p

        You mean” violatin dur cibil whites”?

    • Katherine McChesney

      That’s a wonderful idea. It could work.

    • Once the word got out, very few refugees would want to come to the USA. I recall a line from the “Enter the Dragon” spoof in “Kentucky-Fried Movie”: “Take him to be tortured… take him to be tortured… take him to Detroit.”

  • A Freespeechzone

    Why is it that black ‘rights’ always cost Whites.

    Allowing the UN to have ANY authority in the USA only moves us closer to no borders and a one world government.

    • When the balloon goes up here, anyone captured wearing a blue helmet is probably fair game for the worst sorts of torture. I doubt many will care if they’re blonde Swedes who are whiter than I could ever imagine being. I have every confidence that I am not the only one who has thought this through.

      • IstvanIN

        I’d give them a chance to change sides.

        • Why? I know they’ll want to change sides, but as with a satisfied cat with a mouse tail sticking out its mouth, that won’t matter very much.

          • IstvanIN

            You either derive a great deal of pleasure from killing and torturing your fellow whites, or you just like being provocative.

          • The socialists are doing their level best to ruin our lives, so yes, I will really enjoy it. I want anti-draft riots in Sweden before I let up poor Sven.

          • 1stworlder

            Giving them a chance to change sides would be forgetting their indoctrination. The only way to deal with the blue helmets is at long range before they know where you are for mortars. There is a lot of brainstorming already done about how to deal with the Blue Helmets, including known UN strategies

      • jayvbellis

        Don’t think I am much worried about Blue eyed Swedes in Blue UN helmets.

        Never was worried about THE RUSSIANS taking over America and I thought right wing Conservative Reaganites were insane to waste the 1980s fighting the Russians in Afghanistan.

        Paranoid Right Wing, Conspiracy obsessed White Americans are always obsessed about some ridiculous nonsense.

        The alternative is to just be a sane, positive racial realist.

        • The Clinton administration considered hiring former Hong Kong police to work for the BATF. That’s not “right-wing paranoia”, that’s fact.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    I’d be curious to see the percent of the U.N. budget spent saving black people, wherever they may be.

  • MBlanc46

    Basic human right? Tell that to my local authority when they cut off my water if I stop paying my bill. Okay, I get it. I’m white, self-motivated, and self-supporting. Very likely half the population of Detroit aren’t white and will never be self-motivated or self-supporting. Ultimately, we have to pick up the tab for them. But if we pay the piper, we get to call the tune, just as we did pre-1960.

      I have not paid a visit to Detroit recently ( I don’t want to die just yet ) but I thought it was over 90% Black?

    I think 75 bucks a month for water is outrageous, considering Michigan is virtually surrounded by 1/5 of all the fresh water on earth, but I’m sure there’s more to it. Some tin pot politician probably put a huge surcharge or outrageous tax on every bill, making it way above average. HOWEVER, I’ll bet those poor, thirsty masses all have cell phones; I’ll bet they all watch cable tv, or play video games. I bet most of them are living in section 8 housing for peanuts, eating KFC every other day, but still can’t scrape together the water bill. Like most of Detroit, there’s something smelly about this.

  • gubblerchechenova

    Diversity begats more inequality for two reasons.

    1. Genetic and cultural differences. Some groups have higher IQs and/or cultures that stress education and achievement. If you look only at the Jewish-American population, you see widespread affluence among most of them. Sure, some are very rich, and some Jews are poor. But most Jews are in the upper middle income bracket.

    But US has lots of other groups who are lower in IQ and/or have no appreciation for education. Many of those people are going to remain poor. Many Jewish neighborhoods are equal-ish in that most Jews are affluent. Detroit is equal-ish in that most blacks are poor.

    But since US has Jews, blacks, Mexicans(who are swelling in number), Asians, Swedish-American whites in the North, Scotch-Irish Americans in the south, and etc, there’s going to be lots of economic inequality based on racial, ethnic, or cultural lines.

    As France and other European nations fill up with more immigrants from the Muslim and African world, expect to see more inequality with more diversity. European women have 1.2 kids per woman. Black African women have 7 children per women. So many Africans are coming to Europe, and most of Europe will likely become like Morocco or Egypt in 50 yrs. Expect to see more inequality with more diversity.

    2. Diversity also feeds inequality because people of a successful group don’t want to pay higher taxes to take care of people of unsuccessful groups.

    Socialist policies and unions work better in homogeneous societies since the rich are paying taxes to take care of the poor of their own kind. There’s a cultural, racial, and ethnic bond between the rich, the middle, and the poor.

    Also, the poor will be more appreciative of the help they get from the government since it represents their own people.

    So, German-Americans in Wisconsin don’t mind paying a bit more to take care of poorer German-Americans, but Scotch-Irish Americans don’t want to pay more taxes just so that black welfare mothers can have more kids.

    A society that calls for more diversity and equality is seriously cognitively dissonant.

    The decline of the US auto industry really killed Detroit. Most whites had the creativity and brain power to move on; blacks didn’t.
