What does race have to with the ability to be a good Mayor for the good of the CITY?

If SP, the biggest & most important BRA city had an Afro-BRA mayor long before Obama came around in the USA, I dun see why a Yank whitey w/ good ideas can't be a mayor in fallen Detroit. ;-)

Very true! Detroit seems to be engrossed in corruption right now. It needs a complete overhaul. Color isn't the issue. As you said, efficacy, fiduciary and moral integrity, along with transparency is needed.

The only difference between a white mayor and a black one is the white mayor is better at hiding his crimes. The start of Detroit's decay started back in the 1920's and 30's. White politicans have been shitting on the city for decades.

Consider the sparrow's. You throw some seed out to them and together they eat for nurishment. A bluejay might happen along and he and his blue jay friends might join in on the feast. The robin bobs along and will watch, as it looks for its worms. A few dove's comes along and they stop for lunch also. So pretty the sight of all these different birds living in harmony.

Along comes a big black crow. It dont take a bite at first. It runs around beastly chasing all the other birds away.

This large, obese, black crow does not just want a bite to eat ...
IT WANTS IT ALL!

True story. Just watch the birds.

A white mayor? They don't even want a black mayor. They don't want ANY mayors. They would rather continue down their path to hell paved with corruption, homicides, and chaos. They want the thugs to rule like Somali warlords in an "anything goes" battle royal. I heard that things have gotten so that the police have become just a minor distraction.

Color is not the issue because whoever you put in the position of leadership is still most assuredly capable of becoming corrupt. Corruption and wickedness know NO color. You should know that.

The only way it happens IMO if it's some kind of gimmick, like a celebrity/athlete-type with Detroit roots. Like.....

-Kid Rock
-Marshall Mathers
-Bob Seger
-Ted Nugent
-Tim Allen

Or , a local sports hero ......

-Steve Yzerman
-Jack Morris
-Alan Trammell
-Bill Lambeer

Maybe you can sucker one of those guys into running , but really ,, who in their right mind would want to be mayor of that dump?

It's funny because Em, Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Tim Allen, none of them are from Detroit lol. No matter how much they scream that they're from the "D" they're really not. Kid Rock just recently purchased some property in Indian Village. That's about as close as they come. Lol most ppl that scream their from the "D" are really not.
