Colored Flint Michigan voters elect two convicted Negro felons, two others colored folks with bankruptcies to city council

FLINT, MI – The newly elected Flint City Council includes a convicted killer, a man who served probation for felonious assault and two people who have gone through personal bankruptcies.
Wantwaz Davis, who beat incumbent Bernard Lawler by 71 votes to win the Fifth Ward seat, served 19 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in 1991.

Davis said he didn't hide his murder conviction from voters and openly talked about the conviction with residents, but it never was publicly reported. The Journal learned of the conviction Wednesday and Davis confirmed it when asked. 
"The council people are elected. They're going to get sworn in on Monday. Nothing you write about it is going to change it now," Council President Scott Kincaid said. "It's not something that was hidden or should be a surprise to constituents in the Fifth Ward."
Davis was 17 years old in August 1991 when Kenneth S. Morris, 27, was killed at his home on Grace Street. Morris died after being shot three times -- once each in the hip, abdomen and mouth, according to The Flint Journal archives.

Wantwaz? LOL How else would someone with that name get a job. Live in a black neighborhood? The only qualification needed is a black ass for office. Brains and integrity are a detriment. Lets give them all the cities, and in return, they can pay all their own bills from this point forward. OH yeah. I almost forgot.......they have to stay within city limits.

Blacks think? As a biracial woman, I don't think that to be true at all. Did you do a survey on what Blacks think or are you assuming things?? And who wrote this article, no one uses "colored" or "negro". You sound a bit racist if you ask me and by the way please update your terminology.
