Vacant Detroit becomes dumping ground for the dead

Aug 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Republic

I always wanted to have free access to an auto junk yard. I felt like I could put a great ride together from the pieces. If I lived on the street in this article, I would be out combing the new resources every morning.

"......It's a pattern made possible by more than four decades of urban decay and suburban flight. White residents started moving to burgeoning suburbs in the 1950s, then stepped up their exodus after a deadly 1967 race riot. Detroit's black middle class followed over the next two decades, leaving block after block of empty homes...."

Oh, I see. It's the white man's fault. Gee, that's original.

Does anyone check on the old men who sit on the ratty old couches on their front porches all day, day in and day out and make sure they are not sitting up dead? You really couldn't tell the difference until decomposition sets in.

Black people just don't show their age as much as whites do. They are better preserved.

One would think that there's more to life than sitting there all day every day. Couldn't they read a book,go for a walk,or even pick up the trash and garbage in their front yard?
