The Downfall of Detroit
Here's an article about Detroit:
What I'm about to say may offend people but I can tell you why Detroit has become a rundown town.
Detroit has fallen due to the people who live there. The people who have become lazy and dependent upon the State of Michigan along with The Federal Government for handouts. Instead of working hard and/or looking for a job, the people seem perfectly okay with pumping out a new baby every so often then collect welfare and child support for as long as they can. Whats worse is these same parents are spending money on bling bling, cars they can't afford, wasting money on nail and hair salons, and mostly importantly not investing in thier children in anyway. Its a vicious cycle that no one seems to want to break.
The people of the city are the ones who keep electing and re-electing corrupt politicians, from Coleman Young to Kwame Kilpatrick., even after its been reveal that the mayors are dirty. The city council hasn't been much better either, believe me.
Crime has been allowed to blossom. Why? The good citizens won't call the police, then complain when drugs dealers, pimps, and murderers invade thier neighborhoods. People have been murdered in broad daylight with no witnesses on busy street no less.
Racial intolerance, on all sides, plays a role. It seems people just can't let the past be the past. It'a a shame too we have such a racially diverse community in this area that could really be a huge selling point
The people I have mentioned above that have run people out of the city and to the suburbs taking thier tax dollars with. These tough economics times have forced more to moved to the subs or even out of state altogther.
