Benton Harbor, MI is 10,235 population town. 85.5% of the residents are African-American. The per capita income is among the lowest in the state: $10,235.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder recently castrated the city government of the struggling town, using his controversial "Emergency Financial Managers" law. The law, as Raw Story previously reported, allows Snyder to "take over municipalities that don't pass a financial stress test."
