Previously on SBPDL: Because Blacks Don’t Pay Water Bills in Majority Black Baltimore and Cleveland, NAACP Legal Defense Fund Pushing Idea of No Water Bills for Blacks

As western civilization fades away across the United States, the consequences of what happens when white people lose power – democracy is a racial headcount, remember? – becomes apparent.

One municipality after another regresses to the African mean. [Chicago water bill payments down $20 million this year as Mayor Lori Lightfoot stops shut-offs for nonpayment, Chicago Tribune, November 23, 2019]:

Chicago water bill payments are down $20 million this year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration said months after the mayor announced the city would stop shutting off households’ water because of unpaid bills.

The administration provided the data after far South Side Ald. Anthony Beale hammered the mayor’s budget team this week for what he said was a misguided policy at a time the city desperately needs new sources of revenue.

While Beale charged during a Tuesday hearing on the mayor’s 2020 budget plan that water payments were down $165 million in 2019, Finance Department spokeswoman Kristen Cabanban said the shortfall is actually $20 million.

And the city has billed about $18 million less this year in water and sewer fees than in 2018, according to month-by-month amounts provided by the administration. Cabanban said that’s due to lower water usage in the city and in suburbs that purchase water from Chicago, possibly tied to conservation efforts.

Before she was even sworn in this May, Lightfoot said she would direct the city’s water department not to shut off water for people who aren’t paying their bills. “Water is a basic, basic human right,” Lightfoot said then.

“If you’re turning off water, you are effectively evicting people and we know that disproportionately affects low-income people of color who are going to be shut off from water services,” she said. “We have to be much more thoughtful and much more empathetic to people who are struggling.”

The right comes with a hit to the city’s bottom line, but it’s worth it, Cabanban said in a statement this week. “Any short-term decline in revenue from ending water shut-offs due to inability to pay is a small price to pay for ensuring water access to our most vulnerable residents,” Cabanban said.

And she said much of the collections decrease is actually “consistent with year-over-year trends driven in large part by a decline in usage, particularly in the suburbs, and customer-driven conservation efforts.”

Ending water shut-offs was part of a broader move toward ending what Lightfoot deemed needlessly punitive fines and fees for things like parking and vehicle sticker tickets. Lightfoot also got rid of overdue fines for books at Chicago libraries.

Oh, Ms. Lightfoot, p otable water is not a human right. You can s till traverse across Europe and see the aqueducts the Romans built more than two millennia ago, standing to this day as a proud reminder of what a people can accomplish for future generations of their progeny.

Less than 40 years after a city like Chicago, Baltimore, Cleveland, Birmingham and Camden went from majority white to majority black (or non-white), the level of civilization found in these cities has receded to the African mean. And we quickly learn the infrastructure whites long ago built cannot be maintained.

Because paying your water bill is apparently just something white people do

The true privilege of being white in America is paying your bills on time and your taxes, too, so non-whites won’t have to.

Seriously, what incentive is there to pay your water bill in Chicago? Any white person – or any individual/business – still paying their water bill is an absolute fool.

    Great idea but the asshole lawyers would beat your ass to the ground.
  12. The truth of the matter is that many blacks want all their bills to be paid for by white taxpayers by claiming they’re under-privileged, poor and “mistreated” by “the system” and by an historic legacy of oppression. Why should they pay for water or electricity or, for that matter, why should they pay to ride the bus or ride subways? Hell, they don’t even want to be punished for whatever crimes they commit including paying traffic fines or being arrested for shoplifting.

    It won’t be too long before they’ll be demanding they should be able to walk into any restaurant they please and have a meal for free or to be able to march into a theater and watch a movie for free- complimentary drinks, candy and popcorn included of course.

    It’s all coming and is just a matter of time. Black twats like the mayor of Chicago will support it too. Whites, of course, will have to pay extra to offset the costs of the freebies given to the black parasites even if that means trying to tax people who don’t even live in the cities that blacks have infested.

    Even Obama himself was trying to tax whites to pay for “improvements” in da hood under his “Regional Equity Plan” whereby whites would pay higher taxes even though they lived nowhere near the areas to be “supported” and “improved.” The “Region” aka white taxpayers were the ones going to pay for it all. The HNIC wanted to get his monkey’s paw into every white person’s wallet and hand out the dough to his “brutha’s and sista’s.”

    The truth of the mater is that white people will pay the bills, and the black people know that. Another truth is that Mexican and Central American migrants (legal or not) cannot generate enough excess income to carry the negroes, and are not interested in doing so in any case. It is not certain that hispanics have a lot of use for municipal potable water delivery either, but that is another subject. When the hispanics gain the political power of "biggest minority" and the white people have become more impoverished or moved away, the black people are going to start living according to their means. Just like that do now in Flint, Detroit, Montgomery, etc.

    This is going to be sad (but intensely humorous, from a safe distance) to watch.

    I recall reading story about how oppressed negroes in Ferguson were being "targeted" by police over minor traffic infractions that snowballed into monumental fines.

    In one bleeding-heart story, poor Xravious parked his ride in the middle of the street while he "ran in for a minute to pick up Chinese food".

    During that minute, the cops happened by and noticed the car double-parked, the expired inspection and license plates, the expired insurance, and the $800 in unpaid parking fines.

    The car was towed, which according to the owner, was an unspeakable injustice. One would think in that situation a person would not draw undo attention to themselves by double parking on a busy street.

  21. The trend continues of relieving blacks of any responsibility to conduct themselves in ways consistent with advanced civilization: From providing jobs for which they are not qualified, to absolving them of actions otherwise considered crimes, to obtaining free that which others must pay for.
    The chances of a spoiled child improving are good, since there is potential for growth and increased maturity. But what do you do with a people who are so different in character and developmental level in comparison to Whites, that special provisions must be made for them, with no end in sight?
    Obvious answer: Return them to their natural environment.

    "Here’s a bucket and there’s the river. "

    Yep...that's how one of the first houses my grandparents lived in, after they got married, was like. No running water whatsoever in it. They had to go down to the creek in front to get their water. They didn't whine about it, feel like the system screwed them over, or fee like they were entitled to anything better. They just dealt with it, until they could afford to move to a nicer place.

    Years later, the only black family in the neighborhood rented that house. I'm guessing it got a water hook up eventually, either to the water main or a well, but I think it always had an outhouse. There was also only one family in the neighborhood, who had problem children who liked to fight, steal, break into homes, etc. Guess which family that was?

    The man who owned the house eventually kicked them out in the early 80's, and the house was so decrepit by that time he had it torn down, rather than deal with it.

  38. I worked for a municipal utility. It was the Pareto Principle writ large. 80% of our work was taken up by the worst 20% of our customers, almost always negroes. Since the negro customer would break off any lock we installed it was necessary to remove the meter a time consuming and dirty job. Even that didn’t stop theft of service as negroes would rig up incredibly unsafe connections to gas l and water lines. We had a whole team of investigators who did nothing but catch and report the criminals but the DA wouldn’t prosecute them. They were ‘voters’ and ‘homeowners’.

    Turning off the gas and water created jobs for other negroes though who could enter negro no go zones more safely than white workers. Of course most of these employees would soon be fired for the usual offenses.

    The negro is the most dishonest and useless creature to have ever been put on this earth.

    He was a lying politician that was fine with slaughtering 18 year old Whites over slavery. It was his belief that the South would quickly capitulate and he would emerge as a war hero. That didn’t happen and yet he kept sending young White men to a bloody and needless war.

    Getting to be to the point where I notice if there are NO blacks in an ad or commercial.
     
    One of my local radio stations has been running not just McD's ads but PSAs with obviously black voice actors.  Soon as one of those comes on, radio goes to another station.  Like anything else, I detect black, I leave.

    I particularly enjoy the closeups of black feet and hands.

    I agree. Water is free.

    Here’s a bucket and there’s the river.

    Drink up.

    You want it piped into your home and heated for you? There’s a cost.

    “Here’s a bucket and there’s the river. ”

    Yep…that’s how one of the first houses my grandparents lived in, after they got married, was like. No running water whatsoever in it. They had to go down to the creek in front to get their water. They didn’t whine about it, feel like the system screwed them over, or fee like they were entitled to anything better. They just dealt with it, until they could afford to move to a nicer place.

    Years later, the only black family in the neighborhood rented that house. I’m guessing it got a water hook up eventually, either to the water main or a well, but I think it always had an outhouse. There was also only one family in the neighborhood, who had problem children who liked to fight, steal, break into homes, etc. Guess which family that was?

    The man who owned the house eventually kicked them out in the early 80’s, and the house was so decrepit by that time he had it torn down, rather than deal with it.

  67. @Non PC Infidel
    The truth of the matter is that many blacks want all their bills to be paid for by white taxpayers by claiming they're under-privileged, poor and "mistreated" by "the system" and by an historic legacy of oppression. Why should they pay for water or electricity or, for that matter, why should they pay to ride the bus or ride subways? Hell, they don't even want to be punished for whatever crimes they commit including paying traffic fines or being arrested for shoplifting.

    It won't be too long before they'll be demanding they should be able to walk into any restaurant they please and have a meal for free or to be able to march into a theater and watch a movie for free- complimentary drinks, candy and popcorn included of course.

    It's all coming and is just a matter of time. Black twats like the mayor of Chicago will support it too. Whites, of course, will have to pay extra to offset the costs of the freebies given to the black parasites even if that means trying to tax people who don't even live in the cities that blacks have infested.

    Even Obama himself was trying to tax whites to pay for "improvements" in da hood under his "Regional Equity Plan" whereby whites would pay higher taxes even though they lived nowhere near the areas to be "supported" and "improved." The "Region" aka white taxpayers were the ones going to pay for it all. The HNIC wanted to get his monkey's paw into every white person's wallet and hand out the dough to his "brutha's and sista's."

    I recall reading story about how oppressed negroes in Ferguson were being “targeted” by police over minor traffic infractions that snowballed into monumental fines.

    In one bleeding-heart story, poor Xravious parked his ride in the middle of the street while he “ran in for a minute to pick up Chinese food”.

    During that minute, the cops happened by and noticed the car double-parked, the expired inspection and license plates, the expired insurance, and the $800 in unpaid parking fines.

    The car was towed, which according to the owner, was an unspeakable injustice. One would think in that situation a person would not draw undo attention to themselves by double parking on a busy street.

  68. “If you’re turning off water, you are effectively evicting people and we know that disproportionately affects low-income people of color who are going to be shut off from water services,” she said. “We have to be much more thoughtful and much more empathetic to people who are struggling.”

    So it doesn’t affect all low-income people, just low-income people of color? So she’s indicating some causal relationship between skin color and being a deadbeat?

    Next she’ll be saying negroes are oversexed, great dancers and superior athletes.
