Milwaukee "Most Segregated, Racist Place"
Bucks president Peter Feigin calls Milwaukee the "most segregated, racist place" he's ever experienced in his life. The "Wisconsin State Journal" reports Feigin made those comments while speaking at a local Rotary Club, adding that the team's new arena being built will help repair the city.
The Bucks are receiving 250-million-dollars in taxpayer money to finance the arena, which is scheduled to open in 2018. Feigin cited hiring Milwaukee-based construction contractors to build the venue and agreeing to pay wages of at least 12-dollars per hour when the arena opens for business.
Racial tensions have been heightened the last few months, after a black man was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop earlier this year.
