A distinction our state doesn’t need

It’s not news the local convention bureau will likely start bragging about.

But a national online magazine has decided to bestow on our state a pretty significant distinction.

In July, The Black Commentator ranked Wisconsin No. 1 among “The Ten Worst Places to Be Black” in America.

“Wisconsin leads the nation in the percentage of its black inhabitants under lock and key. Just over four percent of black Wisconsin, including the very old and the very young of both sexes, are behind bars,” according to The Black Commentator.
D’oh!
