Michigan is a Midwestern state of the United States of America. It was named after Lake Michigan, whose name is a French adaptation of the Ojibwe term mishigami, meaning "large water" or "large lake".[1][4]

Bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, plus Lake Saint Clair, Michigan has the longest freshwater shoreline in the world. The Great Lakes that border Michigan from east to west are Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.

Michigan is the only state to consist entirely of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula of Michigan, to which the name Michigan was originally applied, is sometimes dubbed "the mitten," owing to its shape. When asked where in Michigan one comes from, a resident of the Lower Peninsula may often point to the corresponding part of his or her hand. The Upper Peninsula (often referred to as The U.P.) is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, a five-mile (8 km)-wide channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Upper Peninsula (whose residents are often called "Yoopers") is economically important for tourism and natural resources.

The Upper and Lower Peninsulas are connected by the five-mile (8 km)-long Mackinac Bridge, which is the third longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the world.[5] The bridge has given rise to the nickname of "trolls" for residents of the Lower Peninsula, for they live "under" (south of) the bridge.

Education

In Rochester, Michigan high schools, they forbid people from entering the school in military uniforms because it might offend foreign immigrants from countries the USA is on bad terms with.[6]

In the University of Michigan, in November 2014, negroids and marxists protested the university is too white and want all white people kicked out so only nonwhites can attend. They said that affirmative action wasn't being taken far enough and allowing whites to attend was "racist".[7]

Flint, Michigan

Flint Michigan had a black mayor, Karen Weaver. The city had a black Emergency Manager, Darnell Earley. These two destroyed the city's water supply. Blacks of course blamed white people. Communist Michael Moore also went to Flint to encourage them to hate white people and blame them for all their problems.[8] That became a big headline in 2015 and continued into 2016 where people were still taking baths using bottled water in the city.[9]

It used to be cars were made in Flint and you couldn't drink the water in Mexico. Now, the cars are made in Mexico and you can't drink the water in Flint. Oh, I hate to say that, but it's true, it’s true, it's true.
— Donald Trump, September 14, 2016[9]
