The Next "Civil Right" for Blacks: Free Public Utilities?

One hundred years ago, Baltimore was nearly 90 percent white. White people were in complete political control of the city, and they passed zoning laws to protect their posterity from black dysfunction and black crime, which was noticeable via pattern recognition. 

Laws and social policy should exist because of pattern recognition (to protect not only the present status quo but guard against preventable evils for future generations as well); totalitarian thought control and political control exist today to stifle the observation of pattern recognition.

One hundred years ago, nearly 90 percent white Baltimore saw the construction of the city's water infrastructure, which is still in use today. 

Of course, the city is 70 percent black today, and losing citizens (it's white population is below 25 percent and dropping) on a daily basis. 

With this new black majority, comes hilarious challenges only possible when a white majority is absent, namely the ability to provide sustain a first world quality of life. 

You see, the new black majority (just like in Flint, Michigan) believes potable water is not just a right, but one that should be free. [Baltimore water discount program short of meeting need of tens of thousands of families, Baltimore Sun, June 17, 2017]:
 As Baltimore continues to raise its water rates for city customers, the public works department has set a goal of doubling enrollment in discount programs to help the poor and the elderly. 
But even if the city hit that target — and records show it is not close — it would be missing tens of thousands who could qualify for reduced monthly bills. 
Nationwide, water rate increases are outpacing inflation, pushing bills to levels in the next five years that researchers say could become unaffordable for one in three U.S. households. In Baltimore, rates are scheduled to rise this summer and again next summer, doubling the cost of water in just eight years.
