Detroit is what happens when black people get their way.

Democracy will be the end of us for sure. It is like 1 sheep and 3 wolves taking a vote as to what is for dinner.

Going bankrupt is a symptom of unsound fiscal policy and budgetary problems. It would help Detroit eliminate many accounting positions to shrink their payroll. Check the pensions and payroll if it can't be reduced then no amount of bailout will ever work.

That's the problem, the people DIDN'T pay into it.

Most govt pensions are funded by the taxpayers, not the govt employees.

You can view things like that if you want but how does that impact the truth of the statement. I can't help the strong statistical correlation between US cites run by blacks and the financial status of those cities.

That's because you're a racist, which is why you view everything by race.

So what about the color of their skin made the elected politicians corrupt and inept?

Please enlighten us.

Btw, NYC was being run by white people when it nearly went bankrupt in the 70's. Did you blame that on their being white?

And the US was overwhelmingly run by white politicians prior to President Obama; did you blame the fiscal disaster they created on their skin color as well?

Nope, typical of a racist, you only see the negative when the people doing it happen to be black.

It is not the color of the skin that caused their problem but it is the culture that they are brought up in which gave them the values they have. Just like white people their values are all over the spectrum the difference is found in the disproportionate number of bad apples.

I can't change the facts, just look at prison demographics, look at who is running the failing cities, look at who is living in the cities on the list of most violent cities. None of these things have anything to do with my racial attitudes. It is black people not white southerners who are always bringing race into everything as an excuse.

And yet it is YOU who continues to bring race into it.

Prison demographics & violent failing cities have more to do with poverty and the associated high crime levels. Because a greater proportion of blacks are poor and live in urban areas, they are more likely to be living in the violent cities.

Yes, you have racist attitudes towards blacks. Not a surprise at all.

The illegal aliens were responsible for Detroit's bankcruptcy! They force Detroit to borrow to pay for the illegal retirements and pensions. Deport Detroit now! Purge it from all the illegal!!!

I have been around way more poor white people than poor black people and a white person has never tried to rob me, I can't say the same thing for black people so maybe my experiences are colored as well as the statistics.

At least I wonder why black people seem to be more violent instead of pretending it is not so. If you don't recognize a problem you will never solve it.
