is louie the big mouth going to pay for all this redevelopment of all the neighborhoods of Detroit with his own money or is he just running off at the mouth again.

Hey your louieness
why don't you go back to Chicago walk the streets of the south side and take the guns and drugs out of the hands of the N word youths of Chicago??

You should be on the streets of chicago walking protesting the thousands of dead black people at the hands of other black people with unregistered unlicensed guns.

But that would take a courage you just don't have cause you is just another black moron who is all mouth and no action.

Detroit's downtown is thriving.

Chinese are already buying up lots of land and property in Detroit too.

Unfortunately a lot of Detroit residents will continue to suffer.

And you are just another Topix moron who has failed to research anything about "louieness." Even though I am a christian I have seen what Mr. Farrakhan has tried tirelessly to do to help out the black community. So don't open your mouth unless you can curb your prejudice and think clearly.

He is a whacked-out, self-aggrandizing, anti-Semitic scumbag.

Where the money would come from to rebuild Detroit would be from drug sales and also whatever the black community could steal from other communities. If we need snow plow trucks, we can steal them from Illinois. Building materials we can steal from Lowes. Everything we need can be stolen and then when the city's all built up, we all can just sit on our front stoops and shoot at cars that drive by.

I fail to see the joke in this stupidity "Al." Contrary to popular opinion blacks don't have to steal everything they have to get by. The rebuilding of Detroit is far too expensive to be funded with illicit drug sales alone. So sorry. You lose again friend lol.

Drug sales to buy building materials that would be stolen from construction sites and sold for money to buy drugs. The circle of life in Detroit.

True in the sense of direct theft alluded to by the poster. However, I view the socializing of Detroit's recovery expense to be a form of theft by conversion from tax paying citizens. You argue blacks pay taxes too, but the bulk of recovery funds comes from non blacks. Also, Orr's plan is to "milk" the suburbs with the water system to help support Detroit.

The truth of the matter is, you get a bunch of blacks moving into an area, like a mainly white neighborhood, and the city will go down hill fast because they bring crime with them and for some reason, they don't think they should have to pay rent or continue paying house payments so, they let the houses they live in fall apart. Unfortunately, this is the truth that blacks deny and the whites that are afraid of speaking up know. It's like when you have a rat infested back yard. As long as you feed those rats for free, like leave your garbage cans open and throe garbage all over the neighborhood, you won't ever get rid of the rats.

I resent parts of this post. Rats don't kill each other for no reason.

You are correct except that when you get IRRESPONSIBLE blacks, or any color for that matter in a particular area, along with zero economic growth, and scant jobs then your silly analogy of rats is true.

I like hanging around in an alley on St. Aubin and Mack drinking malt liquor out of a paper bag and smoking loose Newports.

I'm keepin' it real, bittches.
