With the breaking news today that Michigan Governor Rick Snyder will be installing an Emergency Manager in Detroit, this brings up an interesting point to ponder:

Michigan had 9,883,640 residents in 2010, 14.2% of whom were African Americans for a total of 1,403,477.
I’ll leave you to do the math as a take-home exercise.
