I have lived in Westland for 4 years now and it is fine, but the problems I've encountered have been from racist ass white people. I'm from the city and my hubby is from Battle Creek. We are both educated and work full time jobs. Our son attends Livonia schools because we're on the border. For the most part, we've enjoyed living here, but "some" white people think they own this damn city. Blacks and Hispanics are gonna move wherever you move to because it's a free country! Don't think you can have a suburb that's "white's only"! We can live where we want! I'm sick of white's feeling and acting like they're entitled to things and minorities are looked down upon when they move to areas such as Westland and Livonia. The ghetto people I've encountered in the Westland, Livonia, Redford area have all been WHITE PEOPLE! White trash girls with multiple kids and coke/meth addicted white guys. They ruin the cities and keep crime going as well, so please don't look at me and my family...who are educated, work everyday, pay our bills, have valid driver's licenses and insurance and do not do drugs...like WE are the problem!

P.S. We're the ONLY family on our street to have our home paid off! We don't rent, we don't have Section 8, we don't have a bridge card and our home was not a foreclosed home. We PAID for it, not just a down payment. And yet, we are humbled and grateful. Oh yeah, the white family 4 homes down has section 8 and a bridgecard. A mother, who can't be more than 35, her son, who's about 18 and his 17 year old gf....who has 2 kids. He is the father of 1 of them. They don't work or go to school and their kids are little hillybillies. Domestic Disputes in which the police have been called several times. They are quite a disturbance to the street and yes, they are WHITE. Maybe THEY should move to Redford with the rest of the hicks.

Hannah, you are right - trash comes in all colors. I live in Redford and we have as many hillbilly whites as ghetto blacks any day of the week. I know that sounds like stereotypes but it's true on some level.
Thanks for doing your part to make your neighborhood and city better.

Trisha- Since the story is a damn lie (your words). Would you please enlighten us with the truth?

I am too so tired of supporting these Section 8 and welfare! Baby after Baby and I have to go to work every day and support them. This state is giving rewards the more these ladies (being nice) spread their leggs the more money they get. I am so glad someone is trying to stop it. Trisha, I listen to my police scanner every day. yesterday a woman was trying to cash a stolen check at the comerica bank in westland and everyday at the landing apartments someone is getting robbed and apartments are being broken in too. You can't even get a pizza delivery to an apartment in westland anymore they get robbed by gun point. This has started when all of these apartments started taking section 8 vouchers and filling up with this welfare trash. These women have a bunch of kids and get on the system and let their boyfriends move in and they rob and steal everything in sight. I know alot of black people that are not like that but there is alot more that are.

Diane, you sound very ignorant. We lived at The Landings when we first moved to Westland and we were never robbed or anything of the sort. We also had pizza delivered to us without a problem. Stop repeating what you've heard other people say because YOU didn't see or experience any of that. The Landings were just fine while we were there. And blacks aren't the only people spreading their legs and getting section 8. So much ignorance and racism on this site. You would never say such a thing in the presence of a black person because you wouldn't walk away with all your senses. Ignorant idiot.

You sound so full of hate. it sounds more that your comment is of hatred towards a whole race of people and not a comment of rational decision. I can only say that what goes around comes around, and that if you live by the sward then you will die by the sword. I am African American and come from a great God fearing family, where we were raised with traditional christian values, which is the reason why I don't preach hatred, and make blanket statements about anyone, because God chose us all that why we are here. Be part of solution and not the problem. Right now you sound like you got some serious spiritual problems. We all are not perfect, but there are rules and yes people need to abide by them, and when they don't there is a penalty, but be Godly when justifying a situation, because you'll be judged by God just like the next man or woman no matter the color.

I have lived in West land for three years,a white male tried to break into my apartment. I grew up like most Michgander's in the City of Detroit and never had one break-in or attempt in all of the 29 years living there, even in the so called rough area.I did go to the courts when the incident happened to see if the guy could get help in getting off drugs and alcohol, and counseling. I would have done it for the same circumstance no matter the color of skin, because I believe we all should be our brother or sister's keeper. What if I looked at race, and though about how land was stolen from my great grand-farther by a white man, and how my great great grandmother was raped by a white man, and how my grandmother was nearly assaulted by a white man, and the racial slurs that a white man has made to me, and stopped me from getting a job. I would be a monster making blanket statements and hating a whole race of people, and maybe even hurting people physically all because of what other people have done, not the person in front of me right now.We are people not animals, so use the wisdom God gave you, and if you don't have any, then I pray when you read this at that very moment God will touch you and give you what you need.
