ok so he bought some buildings cheap. did he force the owners to sell at his price? whats wrong with gilbertville? were are all the black shooters ? they cant buy buildings in detroit. millionare nfler kaperdink cant buy some buildings in detroit and let minority contractors refurbish them? when ilitch built his new stadium he tried to get 51 percent minority participation by offering a skilled trades apprenticeship program for detroiters and got little participation. so dont boo hoo about gilbert. what detroiters should be concentrating on is educating their grade school kids. i know of 2 teachers who recently got jobs with the dps system teaching grades 1 thru 4 and its disgusting. black kids cant count to 10, dont know their left hand from their right. come to school with filthy clothes. the teachers i know are putting a washer and dryer in one school to clean their clothes. shame on those kids mothers.their mothers dont feed them breakfest so now the teachers i know are making food available for them. whitey trying to make it right again

Put a time limit on "entitlements" and ANY government handouts unless the recipient is actively enrolled in a trade school for a skill or vocation . When the money quits flowing, hungry bellies will get people off the front porch . The menial labor factory jobs are not ever coming back like before so without a marketable skill or trade, there is not much available . Taxpayers only owe these people an opportunity to better themselves, NOT a guaranteed comfortable lifestyle
