Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

BLACK EMPLOYEES SUE WHIRLPOOL

After sucking all the blood out of the residents of Benton Harbor, black workers in Nashville were passed over for promotion.
A discrimination lawsuit was filed in Nashville by 15 black employees of the Whirlpool Corporation in LaVergne. The company fostered a racially hostile environment,
The employees say they were passed over for promotion and their complaints to management were brushed to the side. According to the attorney, 12 white employees have come forward to back up the claims. The suit seeks more than 50 millions dollars from a federal jury.
Whirlpool officials deny the claims. The suit was orginally filed in 2003 according to court records, but was suspended while the sides were engaged in mediation.
Whirlpool is a leading manufacturer of major home appliances. The LaVergne plant makes air conditioners, built-in refrigerators, air purifiers, and dehumidifiers.

Sucking the life out of Benton Harbor????

Whirlpool is about the only manufacturing employer left in the area.

Not to mention the fact that they have been trying to revitalize the down town as well as donating money hand over fist to the City.

This is insaine. Groups should be trying to keep Whirlpool in Benton Harbor rather then help them choose to take a valued employer south like most every other manufacturer has done.

Stop playing the race card you know there are more factors in this story than you are letting on to.

What a joke!! Whirlpool has given more to the City of Benton Harbor then any other business.

They should be commended for their community involvement in an era in which big corporations have moved out of the country to benefit from lower taxes.

Even if the claim by the employees is true, the incident occurred in another state, not to mention a Southern state. Whirlpool has thousands of employees worldwide. I can guarantee you that they are not all racist or predujicial and this issue has nothing to do with Benton Harbor.

This is all about Rev. Pinkney, trying to be the next Jesse Jackson.

Too bad he's more like Michael Jackson, except without the expensive attorneys, so he might actually go to prison.

I, for one, hope he does.

Apparently the black workers in Nashville are sucking the blood out of Benton Harbor, at least that's how the first sentence reads. I don't know how they can get away with this, I thought sucking the blood out of Benton Harbor was Whirlpool's job?

They sucked the blood out of those new Habitat homes they sponsored, that's for sure.
