FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
from the desk of Rev. Pinkney
President of Black Autonomy Network Community Organization: BANCO
Subject: Racism is
out-of-control in Benton Harbor, Michigan
Kim Hunt is the apartment building
manager of Cogic Village Apts., a large complex in Benton Harbor. She

calls the Black ladies "Niggers" and "Black bitches." If someone stands
up to her, she evicts them. She has evicted several Black residents,
and threatened many more.
received over twenty-five complaints against Kim Hunt. Her racist
activity is so long-standing and vicious, it has now gotten me involved
in the Cogic Village community.
Eugene Branch, owner of Handy Branch Service
Branch has been a contractor at Cogic Village Apts. since 2005. He has
performed many jobs with no complaints. Kim Hunt told the maintenance
manager to fire Branch. But the boss said Branch does a great job and
refused. So, Kim Hunt fired both Branch and the maintenance manager.
We had a
protest today against Kim Hunt, Cogic, and Eagle Point Companies.
(Cogic is a church in Benton Harbor which owns the apartment complex;
Eagle Point is a nation-wide company which Cogic hired to manage the
complex.) Cogic pastor Nate Wells simply claims there are no problems
with Kim Hunt.
Please call and protest the on-going treatment of the residents of Benton Harbor:
