GENOCIDE IN BENTON HARBOR

From Rev. Edward Pinkney, 269-925-0001

All are welcome - please attend

Black genocide from the cradle to the grave. Black life is at risk. The
blue print for how the systematic killing of African-Americans is being
carried out in Benton Harbor is no longer invisible.

Some facts:
In Benton Harbor the infant mortality rate is 13.5% - one of the highest
rates in the nation.

Young Black men (babymakers), ages 18-26, are 80% of the prison population in Michigan. In Benton Harbor, that figure is higher.

75% of those young Black men are convicted by all White juries in Michigan. In Benton Harbor, that figure is 98%.

Rev. Pinkney is outraged about the recently renewed contracts of Public
Defenders Ernest White, Michael Renfro, and Rodney Fuller. All are white
and all have a history of not defending the people. They have each played
an important part in making sure that as many Benton Harbor Black people as possible become incarcerated.

It is difficult to fight against the blatant racism in Berrien County
because Benton Harbor residents do not attribute their oppression to
being African-American. They have been "taught" over time to believe that
Black people are poor people and that's just the way it is.

Rev. Pinkney is asking everyone to try and find ways to help the people of
Benton Harbor. Desperately needed are grant money, jobs, better schools,
etc., etc....
