The functional literacy rate in Detroit is 53%. The number with felony records is also high. Welfare is rampant. Then there are those who refuse any employment. This makes it difficult to recruit star quality actors.
I know the people of Detroit so I can judge them. I don't need a show to guide me. I have my own stories of victimization. There simply is no way to paint a pretty picture of Detroit culture. You are in total denial.
Pride in my birthplace, yes. Denial, no. I think I know better than most the dire straits Detroit is in. However, I do know from experience that not all Detroiters are like the actors and undesirables seen on that show, which, btw, plays into every Jewish/Black people stereotype known to man.
