I just left the Detroit area a few days ago, thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
The place is an absolute garbage dump. Abandoned and crumbling buildings, trash littering the grass and streets, graffiti on buildings and
overpasses... the list goes on and on. And although these pictures and videos do highlight the disgrace that Detroit is, they really still do not do
it justice. It is something you have to personally witness to get the full effect.
Take this picture for example:
This is a building that is conveniently located at the intersection of the major freeways Interstate 75 and Interstate 94. This is what people see
when they are coming into or leaving Detroit on I-75 or driving past Detroit on I-94. Thousands of people see this embarrassing thing every day! What
kind of an example of your city do you set when you allow something like this to greet people?
Oh, and just a heads up for those of you who may be risking your lives to travel to Detroit, if you happen to find yourselves on I-75 in the
Melvindale area, take a look to your left if you are just arriving in Detroit or your right if you have realized the error of your ways and are
leaving. There you will see the Marathon Petroleum Refinery. The billowing clouds of smoke rising from the disgusting looking smokestacks along with
the view of Detroit either in your windshield or rear-view mirror really does seal the whole experience for you.
The only decent areas of the city are the Renaissance Center, Ford Field, and Comerica Park. Everything else is an absolute disaster. Overall, Detroit
is a very pathetic place that would be better off as the target of a nuclear attack. The citizens are very uneducated and continue to elect mayors who
then rob the city of what little revenue it generates simply because they are black. No one likes to talk about it or admit it, but THAT my friends is
why Detroit is the way it is.
