Last summer, Milwaukee received the Judgmental Map treatment, with a graphic of the city irreverently marking its various segregations and stereotypes.
The map, credited to Milwaukee native Leviticus Lund, was pretty amusing ("Milwaukee's fabulous 'beach scene' [July 1st - August 30th]"), pretty offensive and indeed quite judgmental – but considering Milwaukee gives it plenty of material with its well-documented and yet still unsolved segregation woes, that's probably very deserved.
Apparently, Milwaukee can't get enough of poking fun at its own glaring embarrassments because the map's been making the rounds yet again this week.
Here's the piece:
Accurate? Offensive? Motivation to maybe make some forward progress on our nation-leading segregation (well, clearly not because it came out last year and we're still near the top when it comes to segregation)?
What you think? Let us know, and we'll revisit your thoughts in a year when this map is probably randomly trending again.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
