I went to the same schools. I played in the same parks. My parents instilled in me a moral code. My parents passed on to me a love of learning. Three
of my classmates were killed in my front yard when I was 14. I was younger when I witnessed my first homicide. "oh poor me, my life will never get
better" is a sorry excuse from a lazy good for nothing bum.
News flash - basketball and rap are not the only alternatives. They are simply the easiest
crime is high because some people want fast easy
money. "You be a sucker and work for your money, I'll just rob you on payday" is basically what it boils down to. You work 40 hours and I work 10
minutes. I end up with the money.
Keep believing this isn't the fault of the people in Detroit. We as a population made our bed.............
ETA - crack was the final nail in that coffin. The decline of Detroit started with the race riots in the 60's. It sped up with heroin and sorry
elected officials (many of whom were elected due to racial bias). Coleman Young drove Detroit off a cliff (same time crack came to the city).
Kilpatrick simply used to people for money and Bing in inept.
They hired an emergency manager to try to avoid complete collapse. What was the first criteria he had to meet?
Ivy league education? Nope
Years of related experience? Nope
Knowledge of Detroit's inner workings? Nope
Had to be an African-American? BINGO
That is what's wrong with Detroit. If you don't want to keep giving everyone free stuff you are a racist
