A perfect example of which can be found below here:
So what happened to Detroit? MLK’s “Dream” came true…America’s founding principles of liberty, equality, and democracy came true for black people, and full citizenship and civil rights were extended to millions of African-Americans, who had previously been marginalized and excluded from the mainstream of American life.
And the result was Detroit as it exists in 2013.
That is not the half of it; go read the rest, at the link above. There is more nuanced racism in that article linked above than you can shake a picture of George Wallace at! Like I have written many times here before, Detroit’s problems are much deeper and more problematic, than skin color. Anyone who writes anything other than this; is one of two things:
- A racist bigot
- A misinformed rube
Like I have also said before; if you are not from this area, you should seriously look into shutting the hell up about the City of Detroit. I, for one, as a citizen of Michigan and a former citizen of Detroit, of 19 years, I can tell you that the problems are much deeper than skin. The problems are of political and cultural nature; not race. Admittedly, the problems are of an entitlement sort, but to place the core issue of the problems on skin color just shows the racist bias of the person writing the article.
There are just as many white people, who are poor, by the way — and Latinos, who are taking part of that entitlement mentality, as there are blacks, who are taking part as well. It is not solely the blacks. Again, this goes back to the racist bigoted assumptions of the those who do not live in the City of Detroit. Hence my suggestion that these people please shut the hell up.
