MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Bucks president Peter Feigin told a Madison audience on September 21st that Milwaukee “is the most segregated, racist place I’ve ever experienced in my life” in discussing how the Bucks arena district is designed to positively impact downtown Milwaukee — according to the Milwaukee Business Journal.

The Milwaukee Business Journal is reporting Feigin made his remarks during an appearance before the Rotary Club of Madison.

When contacted Monday, September 26th by the Business Journal, Feigin said via email that he was discussing the “hard truths” about the difficult issues facing the city of Milwaukee.

Here is the full quote from Feigin on Milwaukee race relations, according to the Wisconsin State Journal:

“Very bluntly, Milwaukee is the most segregated, racist place I’ve ever experienced in my life. It just is a place that is antiquated. It is in desperate need of repair and has happened for a long, long time. One of our messages and one of our goals is to lead by example.”

Feigin told the Madison Rotary audience that the Bucks owners’ investment in the arena district will infuse life into a part of the city desperately in need, the State Journal is reporting.

“We know we can’t cure the world — but we are very determined to get ourselves involved in programs that we can measure a difference in and put our claws into for a long period of time and show a difference,” Feigin said.
