Detroit is nearly all black. How is reporting all that crime the subject of bias? Did those 400 people not die?
I go to Detroit. I see drugs and prostitution. I see gangs. I have seen violence too. I see who the perpetrators are. When I come home, I don't see these things. I take a hot shower without fear of someone kicking the door in. YMMV
Your comment only makes sense as a way of diverting from the facts.
you should see all of this along 8 mile among your own and drugs are EVERYWHERE. one jewish man told me that white folk in the burbs use drugs just as much as us in the city but the burbanites are usually able to afford the best drug treatment facilities!

right from the horses mouth!

now southfield has a VERY HEAVY blk population, do you see crime, drugs and gangs there to?

According to City-Data, Southfield has a crime idex of 326 compared to the national of 319 and Detroit's 1026. This is very impressive with 70% African Americans. How do they do that? Detroit leaders have been taking money under false pretenses.

Brighton Michigan is 95% white, 0% black and has half the national average crime rate at 148.

Crime stats are not broken down by street except possibly on the local police blotter. Use your imagination.

Blacks are and continue to be in denial!

The reason is simple, because if they (the blacks) take obvious and rightfully earned blame, then it proves all the statistics, numbers, observations, and cold hard truth as exactly that....the facts!
It also means they (the blacks) would be forced to get off their lazy assses, take some responsibility, and fix the mess they made. Hmmm imagine that!

Reality....what a concept!!!

Did you see something on TV that ruffled your feathers? You must really love the sound of your voice huh?? Keep on preaching to the choir man. It's not going to change Detroit's plight at all. The thing I don't understand is why you care sooooo much. You're probably nestled in some comfortable suburb away from the hordes of maniacal, irresponsible blacks. How does the situation of Detroit affect you?

The economic reality DP is the majority of whites wake up everyday and go to work. And by the way, my grandfather was Irish, and even being white, was discriminated against viciously by other whites.

They are even complaining about the free police and EMS vehicles now. They say it's a plan to take jobs from the mechanics who maintain those vehicles with 300K on them.
How can you win with logic like this?

So true. Lol he just needs something to complain about to feel better about himself. The problems of Detroit probably don't impact him at all. It's just so easy to bash Detroit when he's feeling down

Because you're too f*cking stupid to understand the population of white people far exceeds the black population by 5 times or more. Of course there will be more whites on the streets, you imbecile. How about explaining why there is roughly 12% of the black population yet they are the majority in US prisons?
