I have many friends in Detroit and I hope this offends them to the point that some real action even has a glimmer of hope to take place.


1. The Detroit Red Wings are not the answer to to the revitalization of your city or the guy who owns them.


2. You were workings man capital of the world, the model of "It not only can be done, it will be done" until you got bamboozeed by a man named Coleman Young who you let die peacfully in his sleep as he spouted racist slurs to his last breath.


3. Automobiles. Isn't that what you used to pride yourselves on? Japan took care of that boast way back in the seventies. You can never recover because you do not have the leadership to make it even feasible. .....


4. Options. 1. Run....no wait..you already did that! 2. Fight. ...naw.. probobly not in ya.


3. Ahhh.....VOTE. Take those in power who lied to you and FIRE them. Make real changes. Do not let Jessie Jackson stand in the way of real progress just like he did not stand in the way of the bullet that killed Martin Luther King. Jessie was wearing a nice white shirt that day on the balcony and when he knew his meal ticket was as dead as JFK he smartly reached down to Dr. King's growing pool of blood, touched it, and smeared on his shirt. Never really worked a day for an honest dollar again..to this day. Hey Detroit, you think that was bad....Coleman was worst by a thousand times.....Take your city back.


Be someone. Peace

Detriot is nothing but a memory.for some f**ked up reason this once proud city that MADE the greatest cars in the world at one time has been murdered by greed and allowed yes allowed to die a painful death.So who was this Coleman guy?lemme guess another Ray f**kin Nig i mean Nagal?There was a website i forget what it was called but it showed pics of all the once mighty auto plants in Detroit.thier all run down ghosts and its f**kin heartbreaking seeing them empty or full of garbage where once a brand new Caddilac Coupe DeVille rolled out.

He used to be the Mayor of that once fine city but his insatiable greed and racism drove investment elsewhere. now I may have been a bit harsh on my post but I do have some very good friends there and I I did live there once.


The automakers are trying to hold there own against very tough and ingenious competition. The mayor after Young actually resigned when he realized so much corruption and ineptitude had been put into place by his predessesor that the task of turnuing the city around, in his eyes, was impossible. That showed his honesty and integrity.


I think his final straw was that over the years something like 80 million dollars had been embezzeld from the inner city school sytem over the years by the very people who controlled it. You wonder why the streets are full of drug dealing gangs who saw this as there only survival. Just one example. Very sad. and those kids are lost forever to eventually to violent death and prison.

Sheer HUMAN WILL won't keep a city alive....look at the great fallen city states through history!...if a city's time is up.....it will fall!


Don't perserveer on a city because of emotional attachment...stay there only for the oppourtunies that a failing town may present. The Chinese use the same word for "Crisis" and for "Oppourtunity". If the MotorCity is ready to reinvent itself, it will...but if it's about to let itself get torn down by gangs, crime and corruption it'll do that too..Regardless of what a few well meaning individuals may desire!


I can't help think of all those Europeans in WW2 whom stayed 'put' and suffered because they felt their city was safe, stable and unchanging. A city is the sum of its population, it continually changes and grows, it really never stays the same!


As an outsider I see Detroit from the viewpoint of US TV/Movies "Goodtimes" "Beverly Hills Cop" etc as a dirty low income worker town, recent documentaries on TV about the downfall of thew US auto Industry...have only confirmed this...when the works gone...Detroit will soon follow!


Just my 2 cents

Well put OverheadCam and Bronze21. I would turn a couple of very close friends I have from Detroit to read what you have written but I won't I continually try to get across to them the points that need to be made but it seems futile. As Bronze21 said," they havean all about me attitude" . I won't tell them about this site as they would only sign up here to make fun of something they no nothing about, and could never understand. F&^%&@^ sad...
