From the thriving, majority white city of the 1950's, it has reached a point where whites now amount for just 12% of the population, living behind barred windows and chained doors in the city with the highest crime rate in America.
There are many excuses made for Detroit, but there is only one explanation, an explanation encapsulated by one word, diversity. As is inevitable whenever so called "diversity" is imposed upon a community, within a few short decades it is no longer diverse, because the diverse have become the majority and all others have fled before it.
Detroit is no longer diverse, blacks now maker up almost 82% of the population, and in a decade or so, when the last whites, too poor to leave, have died or been murdered, they will be closer to 100%. We see the results already in corruption, a collapsing infrastructure and a murder rate exceeded only by Bogota or Baghdad.
As if that was not enough, another third world horror has now taken hold in what was once one of Americas main power houses, and that horror is hunger. That such a thing as hunger could exist in the richest nation on earth is not, as the protagonists of the multicultural dream would have us believe, an indictment of wider (whiter) American society, but rather it is an indictment of what Detroit itself has become.
Despite the recession, across Michigan and indeed across much of America, farmers are producing plenty of food, but they dare not try to sell in in Detroit for they are likely to be robbed or even killed before the produce reaches what shops are left. Detroit's plight is the result of what Detroit has become and that is something which cities across Europe and Britain are also becoming.
The following article, although written from a Liberal and multicultist enamoured, blame whitey, perspective gives a frightening account of what a great American city has become, and what many other great cities across North America and Western Europe if the enforced diversity and effective ethnic cleansing we are seeing is allowed to continue.
Hunger hits Detroit
On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries.
"No pictures, put the camera down," he yells. My companion and I, on a tour of how people in this city are using urban farms to grow their own food, speed off.
In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit. There isn't a single major chain supermarkets in the city, forcing residents to buy food from corner stores. Often less healthy and more expensive food.
As the area's economy worsens --unemployment was over 16% in July -- food stamp applications and pantry visits have surged.
Detroiters have responded to this crisis. Huge amounts of vacant land has led to a resurgence in urban farming. Volunteers at local food pantries have also increased.
But the food crunch is intensifying, and spreading to people not used to dealing with hunger. As middle class workers lose their jobs, the same folks that used to donate to soup kitchens and pantries have become their fastest growing set of recipients.Continue reading here
