U.S. Representative John Conyers says Michigan’s possible state takeover of Detroit is racist and violates civil rights, The Washington Post reports.

The congressman’s statement is the strongest denouncement of the possible takeover since the story made national news last year:

“How come all of the jurisdictions put under emergency management are majority African American? Has anybody noticed that?” asked Rep. John Conyers (D), who has represented Detroit for 47 years. “There seems to be a racial aspect, a racial component of the application of this law.”

The severity of the crisis is further punctuated by the flip-flopping of Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, who initially said that the city could run out of money this spring only to backtrack on that statement recently.
