All this info is in the news story/link.

The news articles mention the skin color. Along with the demographic breakdown of Detroit, it is significant.

Ugh now he is going to talk Gov Squish into removing the EFM from Detroit, and the ghetto is going to suck even more of the life out of the rest of the state as it resumes its downward spiral. When few in your city work, and almost none pay anything in taxes, and so many businesses left long ago, there just isn't much to run a city on. Everyone wants to show up at the potluck without bringing a plate and eat. Doesn't matter who runs it, it is just an untenable situation. It came as no surprise to me when Bing got frustrated and gave up.

correct,the real story is black voters desiring a Mayor to move the city forward,so they chose Mr. Duggan...who happens to be white.

Do most LTU&P'ers see that.?No,they attempt to paint me as racist because I mentioned his skin color.

again..

THIS IS A STORY ABOUT BLACK RESIDENTS VOTING IN THE GUY WHO GETS THINGS DONE,HE ALSO HAPPENS TO BE WHITE.

I'm thinking it could be the start of something bigger than just Detroit.



no,I'm not shouting.

They need to allow Detroit to declare bankruptcy and default on it's debts. A politically brokered bailout will only result in the insane liabilities being paid off by claims placed on everyone outside Detroit who didn't make decades of these mistakes.

Let failure fail

Exactly why it kind of scares me that they elected a mayor who might make a more effective plea at the state level than just ranting and raving.

Make no mistake, they will attempt to take the bailout to national taxpayers.

I pity the new mayor, it hard to start from nothing, he is starting in deep negative territory.

I wish him well, Normally I'd say it's easy when the only direction to go is up, but Detroit has been in free-fall at 23ft per sec. per sec. for 3 decades... It must have exceeded Warp Factor 1 on it's way to hell by now. That is a lot of inertia to overcome.

Send in more guns and let them kill each other. Goons killing goons...good for society. Will not clog up the legal system and saves millions keeping them locked up. While they are at it send in the birth control pills.

** no racial slams in this thread..but Thanks for looking**

Yet it was great to shout "Obama, the first BLACK president" from the rooftops. But, many people won't vote for him because "I don't look like them".

Distribute AR15s and 1911s and ammo and flak jackets to anyone in there without a criminal record. If I had to live there I'd go for it.
