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 ?
What a moron in denial you are...blacks are fleeing the city at huge sums...nice you ignore that you fuktard!

People don't want to live around scum, crime and violence, so they leave.
Whites clued into this much sooner, and have a much lower tolerance for this type of bulllshit!
Blacks live their lives very undisciplined and without structure, so violence crime and scum is no big deal...but now, blacks have FINALLY reached their tipping point (35 years later) and are now fleeing the city at crazy rates!

Even as recently as 10 years ago there were no blacks in Westland, Garden City Taylor or Canton...this is not the case now.

45 to 55 years ago there was nearly 2 million people in the city, then Coleman Young started to create an undisciplined, unstable and unreliable environment laced with racism against whites, and as a result, the whites left.
Blacks were left to run the city, and run it they did...right into the ground, which is quite typical of any black controlled urban city.
Now there is less than 700,000 people in the city and dropping like flies!

In the burbs, many people are trained and practiced in the art of STAND YOUR GROUND...so if a repeat of the 60's/70's comes up in the burbs, people will protect themselves!

Look how blacks freaked out when someone defended themselves against a hood-rat ghetto thug in Florida...the blank check for blacks has been all used up and the racist blacks are getting back what they have been dishing out for 40 years!
LMAO

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.
Sounds like you're smoking up.all.your profit again, do you put any thought at all into your posts or just start typing and let it go where it may.
How on Gods green earth do you figure the whites are obligated to take care of a bunch of crooked politicians, people that refuse to work because they feel.entitled to someone else's money,to fund a failing police dept, school.system that is a complete bust. Once again, all the middle class has left that shit-hole, blacks as well.as whites, its called self responsibility to take care of oneself and not depend on the taxpayers of this great state to support them, and this attitude is handed down from generation to generation to the point it becomes.a way of life, But its easier to sit back and point the finger at someone else rather than acknowledging your own short comings and set about fixing yourself as a human being, not black, white or red but as a human.
You can cover it in paint and call it something it ain't but facts remain black elected leaders have been running Detroit to the poor house since 1974, if you can't get it right in 40 years I don't know what to tell.you other than man up.and be responsible for your own life and quit shifting that burden to the hard working tax payer.
You and those like you are the biggest problem, thinking its someone else's responsibilty to raise your children while you're out looking cool.in the hood. If you had a real job and payed taxes to fund such a corrupt system you might feel different but I know that's expecting a lot.
Judging from.your comments methinks you're just another instigating flamethrower, and I hope this is the case otherwise you are showing your shallow narrow minded way of thinking and that is the main reason the rest of the state hears a giant sucking noise coming from Detroit, the sound of tax payer money being flushed down the toilet.

Get a job and pay your own way like the rest of us.

The problem in Detroit is more difficult than race. The Black community was doing quite well up until about 1977 or 78. Then the great redeemer or more commonly known as President Carter decided to tell Black Americans how bad they were treated. Then he created social programs to make them feel better. Just so you know the average black family at that time was doing as good and in some cases even better than some of the middle class white families at the time. By President Carters actions unknowingly or by design undid a lot of what Rev. King had started. And so you know I do believe Rev. King was a great man and had great ideas.

But in the end it all comes down to your own choices good or bad you have to live with them.

The fall of Detroit has some to do with race but more with corruption and ideology. Fear is a great tool to keep the population down. I have very little faith in convincing anyone on this but deep down most of you know this is the truth. Live in fear and be good sheep.

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
And 40 years before that it was under white control dying a slow death due to white corruption, want to know who was it 40 years before that ? Whites ROFLMFAO!

It's the plot of RoboCop come true. There is no Omni Consumer Products (OCP) to take over the corrupt city government and create a RoboCop. Well unless the Federal Government, steps into the role of OCP. They could turn the city into a second Las Vegas, Call it Detroit 2.0 or Sin City 2. They can make all the vices legal, like drugs and prostitution. Hell build a race track around the city and offer a grand prize or offer death row convicts their freedom, and make a real life Death Race. A Death Race would be perfect in Detroit, the Romans knew it, Death sells. Detroit would be the richest city in the world if they did all these changes.

Correct that 96% was the Black Obama vote exit polls. My question is it doesn't matter( 13 ) U.S. Black Pop

Its hard to believe that only 13% of the Black culture can cause the U.S. Cities to turn into Ghetto Killing fields

Communists, socialists, and liberals who controlled the unions were all white in the beginning, and they did play a significant roll in the demise, because in the beginning they excluded blacks, and their militant actions caused a lot of good businesses to leave and take their jobs with them. That left fewer jobs for even greater numbers of blacks, and then you had the riots. The one in the fifties spooked a lot of whites including my grandfather, who left the city back then. But even with the trouble, Detroit was still a world class city into the fifties and early sixties. Then round two of the riots hit in '68, followed by the beginning of black liberal leadership and that nailed the casket shut. All down hill from there without hardly a pause. Blacks have been so perfectly duped by the liberals that their demographic has largely become dysfunctional by their victim status they have cultivated. I can appreciate their collective anger, but the only whites that bear guilt in this are the white liberal democrats that have successfully lied to the nation for the last 70 years and put blacks back on a government plantation that keeps them poor, ignorant, and violently angry.

Its more insidious then that. Yes, blacks are roughly 13% of the 310 million in our nation, but of that number, slightly less then half are black men, and inside that number, even fewer are of the ages between 15 and 30, which is the group doing the majority of the killing. That number may be as small as 3% of the over all population of blacks being responsible for more then half of all murders in the country. That is the story, but we must ignore reality and stay focused on the narrative that the democrats want us all to believe. That is that we are a racist country, and whites are to blame for the situation, even though the statistical data clearly shows where the problem is. How pathetic can it get?

True enough. It's sad also what white flight, outsourcing, political corruption, and racism can do to a city as well as a country. Very sad indeed.

You should understand that a major crisis is best attacked by working on the most serious problems, which is the black culture. The rest of the stuff like political corruption is more of a nuance that will always exist, white or black, and should be addressed concurrently. However, it's best to focus on the worst.

True. Currently that is the problem. However, the thread is entitled: "white people killed detroit". I was simply building off that title and responding to the erroneous implication that black people were the sole agents of Detroit's downfall.

HELLO what WHITE Control!!!!

You need a History Lesson…..

The HOW and WHY the Blacks became so huge in numbers in the North.. Now lets see how that worked out, while Detroit was still 55 percent white according to the 1970 census, by 1980 whites only made up 34 percent of the population. The decline was even more stark considering that Detroit was 83 percent white at the time of the city's all-time population high in 1950. The departure of middle class whites left blacks in control of a city suffering from an inadequate TAX BASE because too many lazy blacks killed Detroit tax base, swollen welfare rolls. "Among the nation’s major cities, Detroit was at or near the top of unemployment, poverty per capita, and infant mortality throughout the 1980s. This is a direct result in any city when Blacks take over in majority….

Skippy 40 years ago the Blacks rioted, history lesson the Great Black migration from the south to Detroit was the Motor City factory. Meaning the best place for a Black to earn a wage was Detroit car factories in its early years. Detroit became notorious for in the 1970s and 1980s. Dozens of violent black street gangs gained control of the city's large drug trade, which began with the heroin epidemic of the 1970s and grew into the even larger crack cocaine epidemic of the 1980s and early 1990s. There were numerous major criminal gangs that were founded in Detroit and dominated the drug trade at various times; most were short-lived. They included The Errol Flynns (east side), Nasty Flynns (later the NF Bangers) and Black Killers and the drug consortiums of the 1980s such as Young Boys Inc., Pony Down, Best Friends, Black Mafia Family and the Chambers Brothers.[80] The Young Boys were innovative, opening franchises in other cities, using youth too young to be prosecuted, promoting brand names, and unleashing extreme brutality to frighten away rivals.

Detroit was named the arson capital of America, and repeatedly the murder capital of America. Often Detroit was listed by FBI crime statistics as the "most dangerous city in America" Crime rates in Detroit peaked in 1991 at more than 2,700 violent crimes per 100,000 people

My question why are Blacks so STUPID in there own History !!!!

What a FEEBLE attempt to Blame Whites
Obama Deal with GM caused a HUGE outsourcing and GM jobs went Overseas.

See it not that there is the “White Flight” the Issie is WHY is there ANY White Flight. Simply put the White Neighborhoods were Great for 100s of Years until the Blacks/Minorities Move in and within a couple of years after the blacks move in the Blood starts running down the Street,

By the way the Blacks vote Dems close to 100% they also Loved Clinton yet Clinton/Dems were solely responsible for the U.S. collapse in Jobs. When Clinton signed the China Free Trade act in 2000 historically lowering the U.S. import Tax opening up the Floodgates so U.S. Jobs wages cant compete with China. The U.S. lost 42,400 U.S. factories from 2000 to 2009. That was 6.5 million Factory jobs and for every 1 job loss 15 others are affected and or lost. Ironically 1/3 of the People without health care are from Clinton signing that China bill on the Southwest lawn in 20000

This also caused the housing collapses and Clinton was responsible for that also. Look I have 7 years in research and also sat down with a US Congressman and Senator about telling the people WHY we had a recession it just doesn’t fall out of the Sky.

Up until 1901 the U.S. import Tax paid for 80% of the Cost to run the Federal Government..

As far as blaming the Whites the Minorities LOVED the Dems welfare and Voted those whacked people in and that’s WHY the U.S. has been declining since Dem Johnson 1964 “war on Poverty” 48 years later, Trillions later, the Dems Program not only FAILED but is a Country Killer, so blame that White and the DUMB Blacks/Minorities for voting in there Dems.

Example If you just looked at Obama VS Hillary job resume and not there gender ect. Hands down Hillary was the MOST experienced running mate for Pres. But who the Minorities want the Junior inexperienced Mulatto that hasn’t a CLUE what Americas about

"Feeble attempt"...whatever lol. The bottom line is that America is white people's stronghold. Historically they have had all the jobs and all of the power. Whenever a people, no matter what color, possess the vast bulk of the socio-economic/political power, abandon a city, state, or nation, Detroit happens. If you read any of my previous posts you would realize I've never once placed full responsibility for Detroit's demise on white people. But whether any of you want to admit it or not, white people DO bear some responsibility for Detroit's demise. Sorry but the truth is the truth. Say what you want about political parties...bla bla bla...but it boils down to this, white flight, job outsourcing, the breakdown of the black family, and loss of tax revenue.
