its a label thats been getting a lot of national attention these days: milwaukee as americas most segregated major city. our a.j. bayatpour looked into this and found two different studies reached that very conclusion... borders...are everywhere. many of them are easy to see...others invisible but well known to in this area, holton street is the dividing line. we have to be able to understand whats happening today by looking into the past. reggie jackson is documenting milwaukees history of segregation. he looks at the 1960s - saying a mix of suburban expansion and shrinking industry left behind an urban core lacking good jobs. beginning in the late 70s in particular, those manufacturing jobs starting going away and that middle class community that built up as a result of jobs in the black community really
3:19 am
stands apart from other 'rust belt' cities is in the way so few black families left. a 2013 u-w-m study found fewer than 9 percent of black people in the milwaukee metro area live in the suburbs - the lowest rate in the country. using 2010 census info, two different national studies ranked milwaukee as americas most segregated metro region. darryl johnson thinks the solution is to build up al along holton street, his riverworks development project will include a new family dollar, a restaurant, and a laundromat. itll also have a financial literacy center for young people. what we really need to focus on is how do we create wealth and equity in our communities that people feel comfortable living with other ethnic groups? that development is scheduled to open this fall. u-w-m is scheduled to release an updated study next month; im told the findings are very similar. live in milwaukee, a.j. bayatpour, fox 6

the man you're about to meet didn't have to travel far to see the unrest--it was very close to his home. and it was violence he saw coming, in fact...that's why he moved here. ted perry joins us to explain. randy hogan was at home saturday night, trying to put together a roster of kids who want to play baseball this fall-. i coached youth baseball with him this summer and reached out to him today for some perspective on this past weekend. he didn't disappoint. immaculate..we definitely didn't have the graffiti because more baseball was played...it was respected" randy hogan remembers when the diamonds at 9th and brown made him feel special. he didn't just love the game of baseball, he loved how it made him feel. "it changed my life then" it also gave adult role models
3:27 am
gave me a father...by the time i came here i had a coach strong who had a two door grand am...and he would pick up as many kids as he could because he just wanted us here playing ball...what did i gain here...father figures.." which partially explains why hogan is back on that same field coaching kids who are much like he was. the infield is full of weeds, the "the homeless us that as a shelter" but in a city in need of pockets of peace, it'll do. the plan was to be coaching elsewhere--after a career in both the marines, and national guard, he moved his wife and two sons to phoenix. "i wanted to get away from the violence..of the community...and
3:28 am
see an environment more diverse..."but two years ago as he watched the violence in ferguson...and baltimore... "i'm thinking wow this looks like milwaukee"..he knew it was time to move back. if we all move away...if we all get a level of education and move away...and we all obtained a certain income and move away..you can't give back...you can't help build...you cant help be part of the solution..if you're gone..and after with my wife,we decided to come back for that very reason..what was her reaction when you said..let's go back to milwaukee? she said..let's go" and this weekend--as fires burned and tensions rose, hogan watched..not surprised in the least...but hopeful the violence sparked some to action. "what do we do now..starting tomorrow" "you have to be honest about our past and where it has placed everyone..then from there say what are my talents... whatever your talents are..they're needed but it's just a matter of reaching out and not being afraid..and at the end of the day we're all part of the human family"the one thing that angers any baseball coach-- is when a player looks at strike three--.the ultimate sign of surrender. this is not a time for milwaukee to look at strike three absolutely not,

want to share the interview with your facebook friends? want to share the interview with your facebook friends? sear -- and while you're there, "like" my page for future updates. we'll also post the interview on fox6 now dot com and the fox6 news app. wisconsin has been a hotbed of political activity in recent weeks.... we saw both donald trump and v-p pick tim kaine in the state yesterday. you might think there are mixed messages about how close the fight for wisconsin really is. despite all the campaign stops, the
3:37 am
state up for grabs.....but of one in which hillary clinton leads donald trump by 15 points amongst likely voters. "trump wants to create multiple scenarios for getting to 270 electoral college votes because he doesn't want a kind of all or nothing bet on ohio or pennsylvania." according to uwm professor mordecai lee, even though clinton has a decent lead in the polls, he thinks h as winnable if they can mobilize the party's base in the state's rural and conservative counties. but professor lee says it's also possible this is all just a ploy to get clinton to play defensively in the state and spend resources here instead of in other states. it's addition by subtraction at one milwaukee county park. an underused tennis court has a whole new look and a brand new purpose. and it was a vision and hard work of one man that made the change possible. tim van vooren goes beyond the
3:38 am
"it's incredible." the early reviews are positive for a brand new addition at lincoln park, a futsal stadium. futsal is a growing sport that's played like soccer, but with a smaller ball and space, and just 5 players for each team at a time. "now we got a regular place where we can just play." it's all thanks to the vision of this man keith tozer. the former milwaukee wave coach and commissioner of the past the tennis courts at lincoln park when he had an idea. i looked at the tennis courts and said there's no one playing on these courts and i'm a futsal guy so every time i see an open space i think of futsal." so he took the idea to the milwaukee county parks department, and with the help of some corporate partners the stadium was made a reality. "when we go back in time what was the one thing we did, we free played, i went outside the door and i played as long as i wanted to i was creative i was able to do whatever i wanted to
3:39 am
people the people i was playing with so if this court can bring those kids back and back out here organize themselves play, then we've done our jobs." coach tozer also took a hands approach to the stadium, power washing the old tennis courts, pulling the poles out, and even making the sign. "it was a lot of hard work, but dreams can become reality and that's what it is." an outdoor futsal stadium like this is brand new to wisconsin, but somewhat of a trend elsewhere. "this is one f that's happening around the world in metropolitan areas taking unutilized tennis courts or basketball courts or any kind of concrete and turning it into futsal courts." "you have the city of los angeles you have dallas houston chicago new york a lot of the metropolitan cities across our country." coach tozer also expects more futsal stadiums like this here in southeast wisconsin. even as the lincoln park location was still being planned, other elected officials showed interest in converted space in their communities. "the supervisor
3:40 am
got courts, and franklin i got courts, and the east side of milwaukee i got courts i really think this is the first domino of other courts that you will see the metropolitan areas and the county parks especially." coach tozer also believes these futsal facilities will help in create the next soccer superstar. "i really think this is the future of producing that special player for the outdoor game." tim van vooren fox 6 sports. so do you want to learn more about futsal and see it being played? this saturday they have futsal fest 2 at lincoln park. the night. new tonight - she couldn't be prouder of the photos.. yet because of them - she's getting death threats. one girl's big kills that are causing quite the stir. she was hit by a car on milwaukee 's north side and died. tonight we've learned this wasn't her first brush with death. her mother speaks out next. the heat is going to build for the next few days before a big cool down later in the 6-day. i'll have your fox6 forecast coming up.
