It's true white people did kill Detroit. The thing about white people is they live in denial.

The real problem is...

THE LACK OF PARENTING AND EDUCATION BLACK CHILDREN RECEIVE AT HOME.

- Black children are not taught respect for life (their own or anyone else's).
- Black children are not taught respect for authority, rules and the law.
- Black children are not taught respect for the flag, a sense of country, or a sense of belonging, which is perpetuated by the race baiters and race profiteers!
- Black children are not taught respect for their community.

Saying blacks are treated differently is a cop-out, the realism is, blacks Act DIFFERENTLY, and choose to NOT assimilate into the very system that they moan about.

IF AND UNTIL THE REAL ISSUES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY I MENTIONED ABOVE ARE ADDRESSED, THIS PROBLEM WILL NEVER GO AWAY AND MORE BLACKS WILL STRUGGLE TO GET BY AND/OR DIE AT THE HAND OF THEMSELVES!

Detroit lost the battle when the blacks burned the central business district back in the 70's.

The national guard should have been called out lots of heads busted lots of people in prison jail or what ever, have the city & state regain control of the streets again.

Someone has got to be in charge but not the gangs, unions, illegals, muslims, drug dealers, welfare hos.

Can please every one so strive to please the tax payers & job creators they pay the freight for Detroit.

The black population in Detroit is shrinking, and for the first time in many many years the white population in the city went up (albeit very little) as a result of the gritty edgy hipster urban-ites that think its hip-and-jive to live in places like Detroit.
Its a fad and trend that will also go away I am sure.

Something in this region that no one is talking about is, the black population explosion in the surrounding communities!
Places like Garden City, Westland, Taylor or Canton...you rarely to never saw blacks there only 10 years ago, now its very much a different story.

Black flight is on the rise...hmmm don't the blacks complain even to this day about the "white flight" in a negative connotation, as if it was racist???
Perhaps the white flight was a result of racism against whites perpetuated by black leaders, perhaps it was the increase of crime that never existed until the blacks gained power.

Blacks had their heyday and ran the freakin city to the ground...and now...blacks are fleeing like rabid rats on a sinking ship...fleeing to places that still have welfare monies and social programs that they are able suck off of!

Blacks DO NOT desire to be equal, because they do not act equal, rather blacks appear by their own actions, to want to be carried by someone else for the rest of their existence!

Blacks are on a continual path of self perpetuated failure, and while only a few escape, the majority will continue to live it.

The rallies and protests should be carrying the message of assimilation and respect, not segregation and separation.

so basically what the author is saying is: the whites left and the blacks were unable to run a city on their own.
Well now, that's because they don't have enough intelligence between them ALL to run a city. Hell, they can't even run their own lives intelligently, let alone a city!

Whites do not live in denial, they are forced to live with the denial that blacks are shrouded in!

History books are being changed to reflect the denial!

Blacks are only in this country because their own people cast them out for being the scourge of Africa, and they did it in exchange for some trinkets, spices and clothing!

History books don't mention that, now do they....DENIAL ANYONE?

The crime rate in mostly black areas is hundreds times worse than mostly white areas, blacks won't talk about that...DENIAL ANYONE?

Crimes in mostly white areas are still predominantly committed by blacks, but blacks don't admit that...DENIAL ANYONE?

Every black run urban area is off the chart with crime, violence, welfare, mothers with multiple children from equal amounts of fathers (ie whores spreading to anyone) but no one addresses that ...DENIAL ANYONE?

Bottom line is, while a few are able to rise above, blacks are inherently predisposed to being worthless in a civilized society, which is evident by nearly every "honest" statistic and study done on the black population.

Saying anything else, is nothing but ABSOLUTE DENIAL!

Whites have been killing Detroit since day one. It was corrupt as sin in the 20's and 30's and it just keep on decaying. Over the years whites have corrupted every facet of the city, stole all the money, kept the poor class down, treated blacks shit, etc. It's no surprise whatsoever that the city is now in ruins. Some people insist that what's happening to Detroit was a recent years thing and caused by blacks, blah blah. Wake up, it's much bigger than that, it started long before blacks were in charge. The whites who were in charge of the city played you like a fiddle and your parents and grandparents being the obedient white sheep they were drank it up. All that black hate you were raised with and that was beaten into you made you stupid. Now all you can do is find someone to blame it all on, well it's not that black and white numbnuts. What I find funny as hell, if white people care so much then why don't they move back and help rebuild the city. Yeah here comes the excuses, it's too black, too dangerous, they will never accept me because I'm white, blah blah, keep telling yourself that. Stop calling the city yours, it's not yours anymore, hasn't been in years. You gave up your right to Detroit when you fled to the suburbs. Hey, now that the suburbs will have the same fate as Detroit, how's that working out for you ? LMAO!! What will you do when your suburbia goes to shit, you gonna flee again like you always do and pass the buck ?

I agree. People always need someone to throw the blame on. Your statement speaks clear and loud volumes. I agree with you 100%. If they cared so much they wouldn't run away. They would not sit on forums like Topix and bash Detroit constantly. I really think it's some kind of sick stress relief for them. Just like the people that I've seen with my own two eyes that go to Detroit and drop off their garbage and then run back home to suburbia and scream about how filthy Detroit is. Detroit's current predicament is the result of poor black leadership and historically poor white leadership, prejudice, and racism.

True. However, did you read everything I said? "Whitey" bears SOME responsibility for the demise of Detroit. Bottom line. I know it's difficult for you to wrap your head around that because it's sooooooooo "easy" to blame black folk solely for the demise of Detroit.
What I find remarkable in the quest to "discover" or "assign" who is to blame for the demise of Detroit is that the obvious fact the city has been in total control of not just blacks for the last forty years, but liberals. This is what liberalism does to a free people. They are like a cancer. If blacks were still the republican voting block they used to be before the fifties Detroit would be in much better shape. The scariest thing is the country has embraced the Detroit model. Its just a matter of time.
