White people killed Detroit

Jul 12, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Salon

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.

Well I wasn't going to argue with you over the problems in the black community. However, you made a few erroneous statements that I wanted to respond to.

Yes. I agree. Were there ever a serious movement to repatriate White people back to their historic homelands there would be a long line at the door. There are millions and millions of square miles from the Urals to the Pacific that are in need of White colonization. These non-African lands are virgin lands that have hardly been tread upon by the foot of man.

Right and we all know if it wasn't for the Native American Indians, the white pilgrims would be dead and that would have ended the white race in this country. Whites made their riches off the backs of poor blacks and other minorities. They wouldn't last without them.

Yes. You are right. The White man civilized the Indian. He did the best he could with the African.

Give a black a fish and he will eat for a day.

Teach a black to fish and he will steal your fishing pole and trade it for fish.

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.
I agree with everything from 'A really" through 'deprived' My parents did very well in the Detroit area in the early '50s, then got homesick and went back to West Virginia. They lived in poverty until 1955, when my dad got a job at a local chemical plant (on the day I was born, so his boss sent him to be with Mom).

And I didn't say you said that either. It's a typical Kallark tactic, deny that you said "all" this or "every time" that, attempting to make yourself sound thoughtful and reasonable.

Minister Louis Farrakhan in a 60 minutes interview even said that it's not all the fault of white people.


Goody for Farrakhan. Now if we could just get blacks to heed his advice about keeping themselves separate from Whites.

Just curious. Are you NOI?

To omit what you say are "five significant black problems" from my statements is in no way, shape, or form, proof of willful, or even legitimate, ignorance on my part.
Oh, well, we agree, then. It isn't willful ignorance. It is, however, disingenuousness.

Look, I just asked for your opinion what the top five are. With whatever due respect, you might try a little more candid forthrightness from now on and a lot less "your fault, too, for leaving, Whitey Whiteman."

But that's just my opinion. What do I know? I only have half a brain.

I'm sure you are well aware of them. They are, after all, ubiquitous. Again, I asked you for <<your>> opinion. Served up a softball for you to knock right out of the park. Instead, you got all huffy and defensive. You coulda' been a contendah, Charley.

As to your actions speaking, well, we'll never know so they won't do us any good here.

And as to crybabies on Topix, well, excuuuuu-uuuuuse us. Actually, we're not crybabies. It's simply that we are among the number that grows ever larger day by day of people who are suffering from what I will politely call "African't-American't fatigue."

What we should do is be constructive and suggest ways to make better life in Detroit in particular and all black life in general.

Here's my suggestion. Since black crime is caused by poverty, we must give blacks a check for each time they verify commission of a crime. Over time, they will collect enough checks and, having escaped poverty, no longer be led down the pernicious streets of criminal conduct.

Any others?

Detroit was run by democratic liberals who were advised to change the way they were doing things so they could save the city. They(detroit government) refused and the city failed.
End of story, detroit got what it deserved from its elected officials.
The working class fled the city being fed up with the corruption, high costs, taxes, unions and crime....Detroit got exactly what it deserves. It rots in decay as it should!

You and I agree Detroit is a failed city.

But where we part is in fixing the proximate cause of Detroit's failure; where we part is in acknowledging the 800-pound gorilla in this room. Detroit failed not because of liberals, not because of Democrats, not because of unions. Portland has all those and it's not failing. Pittsburgh has all those and has come back from near disaster to be one of the best places in the country to live. San Francisco has liberals and Democrats and unions aplenty. Some of the coal mine country in West Virginia has liberals and Democrats and the remnants of unions, and we don't find the crime and blight there that we find in Detroit. West Virginia, maybe she isn't the trendiest place in the country, but you'd rather scratch by there any day than have to live in Detroit.

Look, let's just call a -- well, let's just call a shovel a shovel. What Detroit had -- has -- is blacks in charge. What Detroit has is blacks in toxic numbers. That's the difference. It happens everywhere and anywhere in anything in which we see blacks in charge and in large numbers.

Let's not beat around the bush.

Ok. You said:

"I asked you to simply point us to something -- anything -- the black community is doing to solve its problems and you can't provide one single thing. Telling.
Let me guess: White people caused it."

What does this mean? "White people caused it". Since clearly it does not mean what you are clearly implying.

"Oh, well, we agree, then. It isn't willful ignorance. It is, however, disingenuousness."

There is nothing "[disingenuous]" about what I said. I am simply just not debating those particular points with you. Period.

"Look, I just asked for your opinion what the top five are. With whatever due respect, you might try a little more candid forthrightness from now on and a lot less "your fault, too, for leaving, Whitey Whiteman."

Well I'm sorry that you refuse to acknowledge the truth but look, as much as black people bear responsibility for Detroit's demise, so do white people. Bottom line. I know you want to whitewash the truth to make yourself feel better but the truth remains. You talk about black people being so bad and such a burden to bear, well your "brilliant" ancestors should have thought twice about trafficking human beings over here to work as slaves. They were too stupid to realize the hell all these marginalized victims of white supremacy would bring upon future generations of whites.

You did serve up a "softball". Guess I struck out lol.

"As to your actions speaking, well, we'll never know so they won't do us any good here."

Exactly. As you don't know the actions of 40 million other people.

"And as to crybabies on Topix, well, excuuuuu-uuuuuse us. Actually, we're not crybabies. It's simply that we are among the number that grows ever larger day by day of people who are suffering from what I will politely call "African't-American't fatigue."

And "African't-American't[s] " are not fed up with white supremacy, haughtiness, chuavinism, and self-righteousness? Give me a break. Whitey brought this crap upon himself. If you want sympathy, hire a $100 an hour shrink.

right-o that's because the strong, smart people have historically ruled the weaker ones. The weak roll over and let themselves be taken advantage of.

True enough. However, nowadays, those historically marginalized and oppressed victims of white supremacy are now fighting back. The world is waking up so to speak and throwing off the shackles of white supremacy. White power is waning and will eventually fade from existence completely. Enjoy it while it lasts white people.
