White people killed Detroit

Jul 12, 2013 Full story: Salon 324

The gaunt man was sitting on a bench in the overgrown park at the corner of Chene and Ferry streets in Detroit, drinking an Old Milwaukee tallboy he'd bought at a Yemeni party store, and trying to peddle an old point-and-shoot film camera for $3.

I don't think that was what he was saying at all. The "war" on drugs is a farce. If the US government REALLY wanted illegal drugs off of American soil they would be gone. Period. There are too many wicked forces at work, too much money involved, and too much greed and corruption for anything real effective to work.
Parenting works. Installing good morals and good judgement works. but for you all - all those 'wicked forces' are just to much to overcome.
Is whitey responsible for blacks wearing their pants around their knees as well?

Yes, it is. Whitey is at fault for any failure to the black man. It doesn't matter about all the advantages offered to the minorities in this country(affirmative action and financial loans, for example). It'll always be blamed on whitey because it's easier for them to point a finger instead of holding themselves accountable for their own stupidity.

I do see what you mean. We Whites must pay and pay for our sins and so must not whine or cavil when we open our morning paper and read such as follows:
"Metropolitan Police are investigating a Saturday morning assault and robbery as a hate crime.
"Police said a 28-year-old man from Bethesda, Md., was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW in D.C.'s Adams Morgan neighborhood. The victim said he was approached by three black men who kicked and punched him to the ground around 1:20 a.m.
""According the victim, one of the attackers yelled,“This is for the Federal Reserve System,” during the assault. The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack.
"Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone."
You are totally taking my statements waaaaaay out of context. White people are and SHOULD be concerned about crime and violence. However, SO ARE BLACK PEOPLE. What don't you get about that? I don't know if that Federal Reserve comment was for real or a very poorly thought out quip.

Come one coward.....I'm still waiting to meet for that bitch slap. Yea yea, I know, you'll lie and say you're not in the area. If that were true, then STFU about Detroit, it's not your concern. But I know it's a typical cowardly response.

In person or on the forum, I'll put you under either way, ignorant dumba$$.

Kal, prior to the 1990s and as of 1990, Redford Twp was a nice community, low crime, well kept homes, low violence rate in schools, etc. with a population of 97.7% white and .8% black. Now, the white population is 80% and 14.7% for black and most of the Twp is a f*cking shithole, with a drastically increased violence and crime rate. Therefore, tell me why that is? Or is it whiteys fault for fleeing the Twp?

Percentage-wise, it don't take many Africans to bring ruin to an entire community. Only the naive and the fool-hearty are unable to see that.

Well, I don't know a thing about the racial dynamic in Redford Twp. All I have is your viewpoint, which is subjective. White people, like black, like brown, like any color will go wherever they feel safe.

Lol what if "percentage-wise" those "Africans" were all doctors, lawyers, accountants, police officers, managers, and blue-collar workers? Would that "percentage" ruin an entire community?

Kal, you're simply eluding from facts and providing a monotonous answer.

Whether you think about the "racial dynamic" or not is completely irrelevant. It also clear you don't accept statistics. Unfortunately for you, they are crucial in allowing people to make meaningful comparisons when there are multiple sources of data. Statistics help quantify common phenomenons and occurrences so that events can be measured on an arbitrary scale. Simply put, the facts present themselves and they display a huge message.

As stated it before and I'll do again, there are exceptions to the norm and you are one of them. I mentioned before I think you'd be a great neighbor and I stand behind that. I also understand your ire about self-righteous attitudes, especially when it's derogatory towards your race. I don't like harboring negative feelings towards any person, group or race, but when the "facts" smack the face, it's difficult to avoid the sentiment which follows. One key issue which many people fail to understand is stating the obvious and/or factual conclusion doesn't make them racist. Unfortunately (again) far too many people can't handle those facts and deem the keynoter as a racist. If that's what people think, then I'm a racist, though I don't concern myself with what others think. I'm comfortable with the truth.

Let's resort back to a statement I made earlier. Whether you accept the idiotic notion from a child's cereal box about the white man destroying the city decades ago or whether you blame the white man for fleeing, it's all irrelevant. The fact displays itself with the black man gaining control and a chance to prove they can accomplish running a city. This discussion should not even reach this point due to that fact. Blame the white man, blame the environment, blame whoever or whatever you want. The black race was/is in control of a city and they simply cannot get it done. Extending back to Redford Twp., it's a very minor mirror to that of Detroit and ironically, the population of the black race is drastically increasing.

Nothing "subjective" about it at all K. I grew up in this area and have lived here my entire adult life. Once the 8 Mile boundary was broken and the blacks spilled out into the white communities, the problems started. Redford is a shit hole now, as is Southfield, Warren, Taylor, and many others. Even if all those "good" blacks were who is moving in next to the whites, the children of those same folk are little terrorists. Just like when the muslims take over, everywhere the black man has relocated too is on the decline in the Detroit Metro region. Look at Flint, Saginaw, Benton Harbor and any other "black" city in Michigan. Shit holes!!! Blacks should be ashamed and embarrassed, but instead they are defiant and provoking.

Yes your viewpoint is subjective, over-generalized, and sensationalized. Not factual. Statistics are not irrefutable facts. They are helpful of course, but they can never discern intentions of the heart, nor does it speak to the MANY positive aspects of the black community.
