It is amazing how everything bad is associated with blacks. I am a black single father who has lived in Southfield for the past 15 years. I have custody of and raised my son and daughter from birth. dont stereotype me. Yes crime has increased but not just in Southfield. In West Bloom, Farmington, Farmington Hills, Novi, Troy, Warren and other surrounding suburbs. It's the nature of the economy. For be it you do have bad seeds. But that is in all races. In Farmington Hills a boy beat and killed his father with a bat and his brother and mother. He wasn't black. So blame bad people not a race. I can easily blame your race for a number of things but all white people are not the same.

I live in southfield and the city is not the same as it was when i moved there in 1980...Blacks have taken over and have ruined the city...with blacks comes crime...as I tell my friends, Southfield should be called Detroit North!!!!!The blacks have ruined Detroit, and the blacks will ruin Southfield
When i moved to Southfield in 1999,(back when Southfield Downs trailer park still stood) Cranbrook Village between Southfield & Evergreen and 12 & 13 mile was predominately 90% white. I left in 2008 when the subdivision was still predominantly white, but now 45% black. I returned to Michigan not too long ago, and just last month, i moved back in with my parents due to the bad economy,(plus my parents are getting old), and Cranbrook village has went from nearly all white to 97% black. I now feel unsafe walking/biking to work at the target on Southfield road because there are thugs that hang out at Miller Park ,who like to heckle me. There are hoodlums everywhere, and Cranbrook Village seems to be trashed. I am a VERY high class black male, and I'm absolutely disgusted that Southfield has ALLOWED this to happen. So now i have my daddy's shotgun with me at home at all times.

My parents pulled me and my siblings out of Detroit Public schools, and moved clean out of Detroit in December 1999 after I was chased through Detroit Northern High School with gang members shooting at me BECAUSE i was a high achiever, got good grades, and strived for an education. These fuckers wanted me dead. I cant remember whether it made the news or not. NOW, it seems the hood has MOVED into Southfield. I dont like it at ALL. Not one bit.
