Yeah Detroit was a lot of things 50 years ago. It's sad what corruption, mutual racism and intolerance, drugs, gangs, and job outsourcing does to a community. Really sad.

Patently wrong when you consider the number of whites that work in Detroit every day and pay taxes. There is plenty of room for mutual racism. You have proven to all here to be the quintessential one-trick-pony of reflexive racism.

Ha, I knew you might bite KingKong lol. My statement was more from a historical context. If you thoroughly and objectively study Detroit's history you will see the truth in my words. You automatically blame black people as if they are solely responsible for the myriad problems that have hacked Detroit to pieces. Every time you open that big mouth of yours stupidity oozes out.

Google the State of the City address for 1966 you white hating racist monkey. We were 2 million people and we were on the grow of all things. When you drunken drug addicts rioted a year later we left for our own safety. Take that 10 foot pole out your azz.

Well you have to pull that racist stiffy out of your throat first and just maybe you could think clearly as that esophageal obstruction will be removed and you can breath properly. Lol all I said was that we black folk were not sole agents of the apocalypse concerning the city of Detroit. Have you ever considered the ramifications of WHITE on black racism and prejudice in America during the sixties? Or does that FACT somehow escape your high and mighty, unparalleled intellect? Rioting is an irrational act carried out by a people who were oppressed socially, economically, emotionally and so forth. Black folk were beyond angry with the system then as many still are to this day. Do you understand that?

Black folk were beyond angry with the system then as many still are to this day. The fact is, is that society will not allow them to be killer spear chucking living large gangsta monkey apes. Do you understand that? We didnt then, and we dont now. They are deadly, lazy, immoral, scum.

You, kallark, in your hate of white folk, refuses to see the forest for the trees. You are a biased racist of the worst kind.

Correct! And likewise, society will not allow white
people to impose their will on everyone else via whole systems of institutionalized racism. Society also prevents Hitler wannabes from executing all the "undesirables." So yes, WE as a society have moved on. We keep the white/black trash in the dumps where they belong QueenTrout lol.

... yo, yo, yo tommy. Institutionalized racism is gone other than the NACCP and black racist polititions.

... Hitler wannabes are executing "undesireable" in the middle east only. Not here.

Your white hating racist blindness is funny when you squirm your way out of anything by throwing out all kinds of unrelated to the topic trash.

Go frick yourself you monkey ape spear chucker, kallark.

Right, so once again the only racism that exists comes from organizations designed to aid black folk. So I'm guessing the Klan is an organization that preaches truth, justice, tolerance, and racial equality huh?

... there yo go again peabrain. The klan has been outlawed 40 years ago like the naccp should have been. Some remnants of the klan recently adopted a highway to keep clean. Hardly racist buttercup. It does appear that the only racism that exists comes from organizations designed to aid black folk. Maybe some of those islam folks are learning fom you all. I suspect they hate you and me equally. Hows that for equality, lol.

... anyway buttercup. Do yourself a gigantic favor. Go to a nearby community college. Perhaps the engish department. Sign yourself up for a semester with a knowledgeable tutor. Work on your comprehention. Its miniscule at best. Non-excistant at worse.

... Have a nice day Hollywood.

That's your answer and you're sticking to it huh?? That's funny that you mention the Klan supposedly adopting a highway. LOL you are laughable. As if that's going to fix over a century of terror and brutal murder on their part. The Klan is frowned upon, but NOT outlawed. Do yourself a gigantic favor and grow a brain. Learn to think critically and comprehensively. As far as the Islamic terrorists, I'm sure they do. They hate everyone, including themselves.

Look, you made the response to me. I commented on the actual subject and you came along with your stupidity. Then you had the audacity to bring those spineless, bed sheet wearing, poo for brains miscreants, the KKK in it all. So no, fail again.
