White people killed Detroit

Jul 12, 2013 Read more: 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.

Do you know what Apartheid means? Yes / No
When the US had the Apartheid movement it was called the Civil War. Republicans Vs. Democrats and who won the Republicans. We are the only country in the world who believed in freedom so much we went to war with our self’s. If the Democratic had their way slavery would have ended 50 years later. Instead of slavery we have Public Housing, food stamps, and crime ridden neighborhoods. The Democrats need a victim class. And you must be a victim I am sorry for you and you need to be pitied because you don’t even know what your right are!

To everyone one here please take a moment and remember all of the people who lost their life 12 years and one year ago today.

God Bless our Troops and those that have served this Great Land

And may God Give our Leaders the wisdom to do the right thing, not what is right for them.

And with this God Bless you all have fun and be safe

White people killed Detroit??? are you an Idiot????? I was one of 5 white families in Detroit on 6 and mound in about a 25 mile radius, in the projects and let me tell you it wasn't the 5 white families that wrecked Detroit and that was back in 77, we are now in 2013, quit holding a grudge and look at the real problem. Also the Governor that took all the money wasn't white either. BAM talk to me when you can make some real sense.

Do the thousands of soldiers that have died in the Afghanistan surge that the democrat president ordered count against Bush, or the current usurper?

The only time I have seen black people do anything decent is after the bad black people have screwed up AGAIN.. thats the 80- 20 problem but no one wants to talk about it, just for the record i would be called a racist in the UK for these comments yet all I want to do is tell the true... blacks wake up, move on and get over it.dont look to Abama look to yourself.

Well white people definitely played a role in the downfall of Detroit. As much as black people did. A really sad state of affairs. I wish I could have seen the Detroit my father and mother knew when they were young. I've been deprived lol.
That's odd. I remember white Detroit. It was beautiful and prosperous. All the shops along Woodward and Gratiot were open for business. Belle Isle had a zoo and an aquarium. It was nice.
It's a shame what the coloreds did.....a crying shame.

80-20 huh? I tell you....white people, enjoy your "success" and "favor." It won't last forever. As a matter of fact it's beginning to fade away right now. If white people continue to sell each other out by outsourcing jobs, tolerating the Fed, buying politicians, and choking out the middle class this downfall will continue at hyper-speed. So yes enjoy the fact that you were able to conquer, subjugate, and steal to "enjoy" your "high" positions. I cannot wait until this world receives a makeover without the Caucasoid menace.

It's the brain and not the skin color that defines the differences between the races K. I have always stated there are exceptions to every rule, as we all know there is no shortage of stupid amongst whites. The problem is though that EVERYWHERE blacks infiltrate stable communities, they eventually bring them down, not lift them up. No different then the muslims. Trust me, most whites wish that were not the case, as I know blacks that are very cool and make great neighbors, but thats not most of them.

It's just childish to suppose that whites are responsible for not staying in Detroit and being mugged and killed and are then responsible for the city's demise. First, the black people are the ones who wanted to purchase the homes from the whites. Had the whites refused to sell to them or bid the prices on up, whites would be responsible for that contrived injustice too. And for the umpteenth time, decent blacks have abandoned the city after the white flight. Why? They can't stand to be among fellow blacks. And who can blame them either?

If we could all have a re-do, the only thing I would do differently is mover farther away from the city sooner. The rest of the state does not suffer the stress we locals feel by being so close to the pathology of Detroit.

The first sentence of your response to me has not been proven. Unless you are referring to mindset, or attitude then that would be factual. The problem that I always have is with sweeping generalizations. You and I both know you have never been "everywhere" blacks are. That's like meeting 10 blacks out of 100 and then saying that all 100 are bad based on the bad experience you endured from the 10 bad ones.

What's funny is that you keep making excuses for what's inexcusable. As I said to you before, white people do bear some responsibility for Detroit's downfall. As well as for the downfall of this country. Period.
