I lived in Detroit (through most of the 80's) and it was bad then, but it's far worse now.

Cosby can talk in Detroit all he wants, but a lot of the folks living there are not going to listen.

There are far too many single parent homes, with the parent either on some mind altering substance (they don't care) or working two or more jobs (too tired to care).

Either way a lot of these kids have parents that are not going to do anything to raise their own children, or the parents are not home because their working all the time.

In my old neighborhood I had a boy that got most of his meals at my house, because his mother was never home or passed out from drugs. He ran all over the neighborhood as he liked because he had no supervision. He finally went into foster care after I moved out of the neighborhood.

On the flip side the lady who lived across the street from me worked at Fisher Body on the sfternoon shift and after work she cleaned office buildings downtown. So she wasn't home from mid-afternoon until about six in the morning. Her ungrateful high school girls held a lot of parties during the school week or ran around as they liked.
