    That's racist to point out that a blaek run city, predominantly populated by African Americans, failed so miserably ... Anyone could run a once booming city, rich with music & industry, straight into the shitter ...

    From last July:


    • Detroit's population has plunged 63% since 1950.
    ...and it's down 26% since 2000.

    •The unemployment rate hit a high of 27.8% in July 2009.

    •As of April 2013, the unemployment rate was at 16%.

    •Even though the population fell 63% since 1950, the municipal workforce fell by just 40%, adding to the strain on public finances.

    •Detroit has the highest violent crime rate of any large U.S. city
    ...it's five times higher than the national average.

    •40% of the city's street lights don't work.

    •78,000 structures and 66,000 lots are abandoned.

    •Arson accounts for 1,000 of 12,0000 fires per year.
    ...60% of those arson fires are in dilapidated or empty buildings.


    Sounds like a party... :endit:

    Yeah but the good news is that previous "homeowners" of these properties will soon be headed your way thanks to Section 8 housing.
    They will probably take better care of their new homes.
