Republican Rep. Bob Gannon blames blacks for murder and unemployment in the big city in racist rant.

Big surprise, skin head Republican Rep. Bob Gannon came out today. After Republicans targeted Milwaukee for one political attack after another, never helping the city recover from Walker's multiple jobless terms as county executive, Gannon's only response is to blame the unemployed and poor?
The face of GOP racism!!!
Milwaukee is ranked the sixth highest city nationally in per capita murders by Forbes, which makes it obvious that our largest urban center, is the anchor holding back the ship of state as far as jobs is concerned. Milwaukee leads in murders and mayhem per capita, with a large number of these crimes occurring in mainly black neighborhoods, the same neighborhoods with the worst unemployment rates in the state. Could one make a connection between employment opportunities and the level of crime on those same streets? What employer will build or expand when they fear muggings, carjackings, attempted murder, or other serious criminal threats to their employees? 

The state’s economic numbers ... would certainly be significantly improved if only our largest city would clean up the murder and mayhem on their streets.” 
Well, isn't that just like a big city. And since more people live in cities, you would think solving the unemployment numbers with business development and a refocus on jobs would "move the ship of
state" ahead?
One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements related to Republican Rep. Bob Gannon’s latest inane screed:
“Bob Gannon says black people in Milwaukee are responsible for over 10,000 mass layoffs in municipalities across the state. His statements are despicable, racist tripe that should embarrass all of his Republican colleagues. Speaker Robin Vos, who made Gannon a vice chair of one of the Assembly’s most important committees, should strip him of this leadership position immediately.
