It doesnot surprise me that Detroit is the number one murder capital of America. Violence and black racism towards whites have always been apart of this cities history.

This is not a black & white issue. Most, not all, of these murders are black on black because of gang issues relating to drug prevelence. THAT is the crux of this problem!

Stay in school and learn to spell, get your education and THEN get on a site such as this to voice your opinion. Schooling is essential in all walks of life - get one! No charge!!!!

Honey you didnt need to mention that you were only fifteen and black we could tell by your ignorant response. RE-READ your response and see if you can find all of your errors. If you cant find any then your are more ignorant than we thought.

I live 15 min from detroit and trust me, i hate to even sound racist, and not all but sadly most of this violence is caused by black violence, its a fact that african americans are more aggressive than Caucasians, that doesnt mean that white poeple can't be aggressive, just its more prevalent in black people, its part of their nature, not to mention the police force in detroit sucks, they don't do a damn thing to help, and most black people that don't want a part of the violence move out of the city to surrounding areas so that just leaves all the hooligans (black and white) including the police in the city, ever drive through detroit in the daytime? it's a freakin ghost town.

yeah might i also add i think(i think) most of this is because the detroit police concentrate too much of their efforts on victimless crimes, and not going after the theifs, muderers, vandals... etc..

Some of you haven't been on the planet long enough to even form a learned opinion about anything. There is a reason why Detroit's schools pump out 41,000 failing students a year. Think about it long and hard. The answer will slap you in the face when you come up with it.

Crimes happen all over the world with whites blacks hispanic and etc. But your right most of these crimes are based on drug related problems but it dont really have to be blacks who are doing the crime some whites do the same thing and most of all its mainly the whites who are trying to buy drugs from the black boys some of you people are just plain prejudice you think because their black they dont have anything going for themselves but your wrong they can do it just as well as the whites kids it is not slavery days anymore those african american is not gonna sit there and take these things from you all they are gonna stand up for their rights and speak what they feel so if i was you ((prejudice ones)) i would think about what you say
