Sneak Preview- Milwaukee: In the Shadows of Chicago

Pin It

While Chicago often captures the nation’s eye, Milwaukee, its neighbor to the north, faces an epidemic of violence, corruption, cronyism and injustice of its own.

As with Chicago, those bearing the brunt of this epidemic are in the urban inner-city communities. And like Chicago, whose Mayor Rahm Emanuel has played monopoly with the homes and fortunes of these communities, Milwaukee’s Mayor Barrett seems to have abandoned the black communities of his city.

Yet a silver lining that ought to send chills down Emanuel and Barrett’s spines is emerging — those digging out from the trenches of corruption are rejecting decades of failed “mis-leadership.”
