It is only when a person is mislead to believe that their control over the institutions equates to success for Black people that they are allowed to continue on unabated.
Shamefully there are a number of "Black blogger understudies" that promote themselves as having the best interests of our people in mind. Their only mission, however, is to advance this juggernaut that has taken over Milwaukee and other cities and expand its power at the national level.
I have learned from active study of their antics that the worst possible piece of evidence that they can use to prove their benefit to the interests of the Black community are the very communities where they have their "Mission Accomplished" signs planted.
The city of Milwaukee has a 53.3% Black male unemployment rate. These are Mississippi 1947 at the height of Jim Crow type of rates.
Those who control the message will tell a tale of RACISM and "Corporate Abandonment" as the fault. I have listened to them and know them well.
In truth this should be seen as the after-effects of the "Domestic Economic Hitmen" having had their way with the economic policies of a given region. In as much as Milwaukee and other Rust Belt cities were built up in population size because their industries needed workers to fill the production plants - when these plants were shut down in their operation in these locales - that which expanded due to their demand for human resources also collapsed when the "consumers of labor" withered away.
Until the IDEOLOGICAL BIGOTRY that has a stranglehold on the economic policies of Milwaukee and other places is made to relent - the tale of the Black people suffering within is not going to change. Sadly the force that channels these GRIEVANCES into continued power operates in an unchecked fashion. Their growth is abstracted from their delivery of promised competency development goals. (Or are they external social entitlements that they are working for?)
Milwaukee is now the 4th poorest city in the nation.

African-American migration to Milwaukee
During this time, a small community of African Americans who emigrated from the South formed a community that would come to be known as Bronzeville. As industry boomed, the African-American influence grew in Milwaukee.
During the first half of the twentieth century, Milwaukee was the hub of the Socialist movement in the United States. Milwaukee elected three Socialist Party mayors during this time: Emil Seidel (1910–1912), Daniel Hoan (1916–1940), and Frank Zeidler (1948–1960). It remains the largest city in the country to have done so. Often referred to as "Sewer Socialists", the Milwaukee Socialists were characterized by their practical approach to government and labor.
Government And Politics
Milwaukee has been a Democratic stronghold for more than a century, with Democrats dominating every level of government, except for its Socialist mayors and (for briefer periods) other city and county offices. The city is split among three state Senate districts, each of which is composed of three Assembly districts. All 12 of the officials representing the city in the State Legislature are Democrats.
Milwaukee makes up the overwhelming majority of Wisconsin's 4th congressional district. The district is heavily Democratic. The Democratic primary for the seat is considered more important than the general election. The district is currently represented by Democrat Gwen Moore.
