I know that large parts of Detroit HAVE been razed, and abandoned and left to return to their virgin state. Should do that with the whole city.

Detroit has 139 square miles of land with about 40 square miles empty and abandoned. The holes are not contiguous though, which makes it like cheesecloth. It's like a completely fragmented hard drive running at 500RPM. Nobody has permission to reformat.

I know. There have been a number of news articles about this subject in major magazines and on tv about teh razing of Detroit. The mayor wants to raze 10,000 buildings and relocate people from teh abandoned neighborhoods.

Detroit has lost the greatest amount of population of any city in U.S. history. From a peak population of about 2 million people in 1950, it's population has decreased every decade for teh past 6 decades and it's population is now about 713,000 or about 36% of what it was at it's peak. And the end to it's declining population is nowhere in sight. Hence, the thousands of abandoned houses and commercial buildings. In short, it's a hellhole, that almost nobody wants to live in. It has rampant crime, cold weather, and a dwindling tax base along with entrenched political corruption.

Sell it to The People's Demkratik Republik Of Kanada and maybe their "Marxist Miracle" they're always touting can do something with it. The Obamaniac was going to send the prisoners in Guantanamo there, but they protested and the courts said no because it would be "cruel and unusual punishment".

NOthing can happen under the current paradigm. It will take some major mandate. It could be a monumental government subsidy(likely) or some major cataclysm(unlikely). No incentive would make normal people chose to move in to fill those holes. The surrounding homes are old and dumpy. Who wants to live like that? It would have to be other blacks moving back from the suburbs in my opinion.

We're all, myself included, just blowing smoke and nothing can/will happen.
