Revolt Special: Justice for Flint



Janelle Monae, Hannibal Burress, Ledisi, Music Soulchild, Jazmine Sullivan, Royce da 5'9
 Jon Conner, Vic Mensa, Jesse Williams, Jasari X, and more come together to raise money and awareness for the water crisis crippling the city of Flint Michigan. After ignoring several warnings the city's water system and pipes are now completely containment with Lead. Oh and on top of that while trying to fix the massive crisis the city is still charging it's customers for water! Wasn't until 2 days ago that the Mayor decided to stop billing residents. Are they serious? That is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in life. Meanwhile the city still owes almost 2 million dollars in legal fees that will come from public money. Although government officials have apologized and admitted failure at all levels of administration the damage is done. Whose to say this won't happen again in any city in America at any time, It's dope these artists came together in support of a great cause. This is not just a problem for the residents of Flint its a wake up call for all of us. - NiA BooM
