the crime in your hood is different from ours because it has not been economically staved like Detroit has, you monkey.
the crimes were you come from are way worse! constant child kidnappings, pedophilia, decapitations, and the most invisible and destructive to America WHITE COLLAR CRIME! or course you won't find drug addicted criminals trying to steal your hubcaps or tv! the crimes your people commit cost America MUCH, MUCH more in losses!
why you never talk about Indian Village and those other spots were we inhabit that are safe, clean because they are economically prosperous?
we expect you to continually borrow the excuses from racists of old used to oppress our people...even though they don't work on folk like me.
Blah blah blah. I live a charmed life. I always have, always will. So will my kid.

Too bad.

you don't need to be in our pockets. you destroyed our business districts where in we were basically totally independent of your parasitic enterprises.
id rather see you work to stay afloat in the Detroit river! LOL!! yes, kicking most of your businesses out of the city worked for us in the way that you could not prosper with our money. it was a risk we had to take.
Really? We didn't even notice. We just opened up shop in the suburbs and took out paychecks with us. Too bad.

so why are you mad? most of our people have moved to Southfield and other places north of Detroit. and most of them are doing well.

you know what I discovered about white folk like you? you talk ish about what is going on in the city but you are really mad because you see us doing well there and else where! I remember when I brought my new car, white folk were rolling their eyes at me...just because I had a new car!

after all we have been through, after all the setbacks, harassment, glass ceilings, core and vicious racism our people survive and there are those of us who are STILL able to do better then you! now that's just pathetic on your part because of all the white privilege you still are not doing good as you can and should be doing! you did not have to experience slavery, black codes, murders and harassment by organizations such as the religious right and the KKK, convict leasing, judicial racism, and etc...but yet and still you see enough of us doing good and even better than you and yours!

There you go projecting again:)

I'm not the one that has succumbed to idle threats. I'm from Moss-Side, Manchester UK..my community survived the Luftwaffe..'Manchester Blitz'...I'm sure we can handle a few fake Muslim upstarts...we've learned from the best luv.

Like I said there's a line and once you cross it you reap a whirlwind...up to now they are just part and parcel of everyday life..i.e., we're surrounded by crazy's and they come in all shapes and sizes...chin up.

What is Farrakhan doing to help the plight of the Africans who are still slaves today?

Denying their existence and suffering.
You know that is a loaded question. All I was doing was taking part in the thread and you resort to loaded questions.

Farrakhan is right..however he did also suggest that folks should donate one$...now that is where I think folks should raise an eye brow....learn how to read between the lines will you.

Farrakhan let slip a single nugget of wisdom..it doesn't mean I've suddenly become a fan.

@Faith..,

Ms DP...is 100% correct.

You haven't been through the rough and tumble yet.

All you are proving is how weak hearted you are.

I know who the victor is here and it's not you.

I just look at Hardcore Pawn and see the crap Les has to put up with to get a sociology lesson about Detroit. The majority of customers coming into American Jewelry and Loan, and you know who I'm talking about, are a reflection of what happened to Detroit and who ruined it.

It's hilarious and sad at the same time to watch....you really understand what happened to Detroit when folks like these infested the city and ran it to the ground.
