nascarnation knows what Detroit is like:
Zimbabwe on the riverAceMineral:
One of the killing problems for Detroit and similar cities is that the income of the white citizens was large enough for them to afford to move out of the city. It seems that once white people have enough money to leave the farm they will, and when they have enough money to leave the urban slums they will.
nonwhites never get rich, much less move where they live.the invisib1e hand thinks Detroit is what the apocolypse is going to be like:
I think that, by the time this happens to Silicon Valley, anybody without a "666" on his forehead will be dead.Lurker thinks Detroit was...murdered!

Detroit, though it's unions and liberal politicians, bought into the lie that it's better to give people what they want and need rather than to allow them to fail. When personal failure is made impossible, societal failure is guaranteed.Never mind New York, L.A. San Fran...Detroit shows what liberalism leads to!

When it comes right down to it, if given a choice of vaporizing Detroit or Ann Arbor, I would allow Detroit to survive. Detroit may be a parasite but its an indifferent parasite. Ann Arbor on the other hand is an angry, self righteous and demanding parasite that has as much to do with Detroit’s downfall as Detroit doesarrdon looks to the future to see the new Detroit:
Atlanta, where slashing tires and stealing copper are the biggest pastimes, is the looming Detroit of the future. ‘King-land’, ‘hip-hop-central’, or whatever; Atlanta is determined to self-destruct. We’re just hopeful the current power base will relocate to Detroit
