Guess Who Pays for the Inconvenience

Real quick. As you know, New York City was the latest victim of the recent heatwave that has finally broken. Con Ed, no stranger to problems providing NY'ers with power, asked the following neighborhoods to reduce their electricity usage, and simultaneously reduced power output to said nabes:

Williamsburg
Greenpoint
Fort Greene
Clinton Hill
Flatbush
East Flatbush
Harlem

2 guesses as to the ethnic makeup of these neighborhoods. If you said predominantly Black and Latino, you've won! Guess the Upper East and West sides of Manhattan don't use nearly as much electricity, eh?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and perspective.

I will keep you in prayer - that you find a church home which accepts you, no, embraces you. IMO, "True" Christians DO embrace EVERYONE - they are just rare.

Angryblackbitch is right....that is some bullshit. WTF? I'll tell you WTF...racism is alive and well in this country. It sickens me, but that is the sad truth and I don't see it changing any time soon.
