What type of question is this?

How degrogatory......how demeaning.....how racist!

C'mon folks....let's be fair....there are good and bad in each race.

First thing I thought of when I read this question....it's like asking if there are too many stars in the night sky!

I'm white - I lived in Detroit for most of my life; met some fine, outstanding people of color
as well as some scumbags of non-color....it's NOT the color: it's the life style.

No need to draw the race card - just answer the question.

Wrong:
.
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
.
When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
.
Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
.
The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
.
Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
.
Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic.
.
When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
.
Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
.
Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
.

.
It does matter - there are too many blacks and that is why crime is so high.

kooky!!!

stay with the question!
The question is Are there to many black people in Detroit?

No, it is not to many black people in Detroit. Its not like its overpopulated or anything with black people. I could see if the question was are there to many Asians in Cina.

The question was simple...Where the hell did all these stupid statics come in at? So you live in Orion,Mi I don't feel like your good enough to even live in Michigan period!!!!!

Blacks make up 90% or more of the city's population, so to honestly answer this question one could easily say yes.
Balance is the key to any successful society.
The real question is WHY are there so many blacks in Detroit, not IF there are too many.

What happened to cause this segregation, once we honestly answer this question, only then can we talk about correcting the issues causing the segregation.
Until then it will be an imbalance in residence and in cultural understanding.

Good topic though!

Your dealing with some irrational racist biggets. You and I can talk till were blue in the face, they are going to believe in what their daddies and mommies taught them and their children wil do the same.

Just know that they will be judged by God at the end of their day.

Since it is neutral she can answer it the way she interprets it. So she answered the question as she sees fit. Just like you and your racist statements. We can all cut and copy statistics to debate our point of views and beliefs.

Why are there more whites in Orion twp. or more to many whites in Livonia and Canton? What is to many? Does Howell have to many white people, what about Brighton and Fenton.

Does Flint and Inkster have to many Black people? Only a manipulating, bigget, instigating racist could come up with these questions.

You should cite the work you are plagiarizing:
"The Color of Crime: Ground-Breaking New Study" Released By Nicholas Stix
Originally published on October 7, 2005

Interesting thing about crime that Mr. Stix writes on is that he says "The single greatest indicator of an area’s crime rate is not poverty or education, but race and ethnicity. Even when one controls for income, the black crime rate is much higher than the white rate."

Again I find this another reason to work together, but obviously not until some the the above mentioned issues are taken care of.
I for one don't want to expose any of my family or friends to the current lifestyle that exists in Detroit.
Its a risk I am not willing to take, therefore it will be up to the blacks living in Detroit to turn things around in order to make things more appealing for other cultures to come in.

The responsibility of fixing race relations obviously falls squarely on the blacks residing within the city limits.
Obama proves that whites have done their part in this country, in getting past race issues.

Stating governement statistics is racist, right? The reason there are to many blacks in detroit is that they robbed the city blind and all the non-white and white residents. Now there is nothing to steal in detorit and the thieves and muggers are heading out to the suburbs to steal and rob.

This is a useless race, in general. They have no self accountablility, responsibility, they have been given a chance for education and threw it away and they blame everyone else for their plight. All the BS I will hear from this statement will be nothing but namecalling whitey or whatever you want. Blacks are the pure racists in the American society! They hide behind that card to hide their racism! Its like namecalling. He how calls first and longest kind of wins the issue on the table. Is Jackson, Farrahkan, role models? NO. Is Bill Cosby a proper role model, YES! But which one do blacks flock to: Jackson. WHy, Because he is a con man, crook and confidence man. What a stupid role model to use.

Remember there are blacks and then there are blacks. Most are good, but there are to many losers in the black society, especially the young generation with no fathers who are brought up by moms who spread there legs for nothing more than a free government entitilement. Fathers are as scarse as 4 leaf clovers. There is no family unity, there is no drive to become something other than a hood, there is no parental control. It is a culture gone wild.

I will enjoy all the racist responses as they will show what the black culture really is like.

You are the biggest dumb ass I have ever seen.

Your whole post is about being on the defensive, but if you had of read the posters comments you would have seen that they were saying something about merging two cultures...
God you are a daft bigot!
I for one hope Detroiters stay in that god forsaken city (you made the bed now deal with it), and I will stay in mine.
As I see YamBums...you seem to have taken flight from the shithole you defend, you are a complete TURD!
Go fuk off and die you paranoid bigot a-hole.
