Hunger hits Detroit

Detroit frightens me, as it should frighten anyone born into a western civilisation, which is now being forcibly diversified. In just fifty short years, Detroit Michigan has gone from being the centre of the American automobile industry, and a poster city for the American dream, to a dangerous, crime ridden, third world slum.

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

By Sam Hargreaves, staff writer On Friday August 7, 2009,

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.

Detroit is a microcosm of the future of the USA if we continue on our present course. When we allow the most ignorant to control everything, as has happened in Detroit and is now happening on a national scale, the results cannot be expected to be good. Almost every large city in the US has a black mayor, and these cities are all in trouble, not a one of them is doing really well.

I can cite Philadelphia and mayor John Street as a case in point with which I am personally familiar. He is completely inept, thoroughly corrupt, and the city of Philadelphia continues to descend into a black hole. This is what black leadership does for cities.

The comment in the article about the fine fresh produce grown in other parts of Michigan is entirely true. But no Michigan farmer in his right mind would send his produce to Detroit where he will likely be robbed when he can safely send it elsewhere for a good price. Detroit has created a dangerous environment for business, and thereby isolated itself. Why would anybody think of going there? This can only get much, much worse.

I did read years ago that this is all part of a plan.

When an industrial city reaches preeminence, the industry takes a toll on the land. Blacks and other third world people are encouraged to emigrate to these cities, driving out the white people. The white people benefit because they move to cleaner, less polluted areas.

Then, because blacks and third world people destroy everything they touch, the land goes back to nature because even they end up leaving. Ultimately, the land heals and regenerates itself due to the diminished population. Then the white come back and farm the now-remediated land.

But then, I'm an optimist.

That is indeed a very optimistic assessment Lygeia, but interesting all the same!

I've been keeping track of Detroit and its decay. There was a blog that was independent for a while, called It showcased the ruin that is Detroit. Then, it was bought by a newspaper seeking "street cred."It is still worth viewing as it does present a point of view not normally found in the so-called mainstream.

However, agriculture is making a comeback in Detroit. And there is even a proposal, since Michigan allows medical marijuana, to grow marijuana in Detroit. Urban farms are making a return, however, the urban farmers have to buy dirt and use raised wooden platforms to grow food because the soil is so full of heavy metals.

Oakland, California is another formerly white city that was overrun by blacks, destroyed, and urban farmers are now moving back in and growing food.

Two years ago on, there were (as in past tense) a series of three short home movies showing Detroit street scenes that were taken from a moving car in 1954.

The city was vibrant with white pedestrians going about their business in downtown Detroit... cars, trucks, buses eased through intersections at a leisurely pace and I suspect very few people were receiving welfare benefits, as auto jobs were plentiful and wages more than comfortable.

If there were Black people in the scenes, I don't remember seeing any amongst the majority white crowds.

Unfortunately, youtube must have removed those classic 8mm film scenes for unknown reasons.

Anyhow, flash forward 50 years and scenes like this video will surely disappoint urban enthusiasts.

I sent that linke to a friend who is a native of Detroit, although he no longer lives there. He comments are these:

I haven't been back to Detroit in over a decade now, but this sounds entirely accurate. The 1968 riots virtually destroyed the city, and the collapse of the once mighty auto industry ("When the nation gets a cold, Detroit gets pneumonia") has completed it. After the riots, Detroit had the highest rate of white flight of any urban area in the country. Population has dropped from over 1.8 million in 1952 (the peak year) to less than 900,00 and continues to fall rapidly. For decades Detroit was the fifth largest city in the USA; now it's out of the top ten, perhaps out of the top fifteen or twenty. The population is now over 80% black, and the school age population over 95% black.

Large stretches of the city's interior are now burnt out fields that have been allowed to go back to nature. (I once rode on a bus through a section of Detroit I normally did not traverse and passed by one such field. Stunned, I suddenly realized that it still had corner street signs and barren telephone poles standing in it where there had once been streets and city blocks.) Several years ago a Detroit City Council member seriously proposed for the cash-strapped city to pay to relocate 30,000 scattered residents in one large burnt-out section and fence that off because that would cost the city less than continuing to provide utilities and other city services to the area.

Not only is there not a single chain supermarket in Detroit (since Farmer Jack's spectacularly collapsed a few years ago), there also is not a single department store. There may not even be a single K-Mart, Target, Wal-Mart, etc. within the city. Many skyscrapers downtown (including the grotesquely hideous "Renaissance Center" that what to herald Detroit's economic comeback) sit all or half-empty. Ditto for the "New Center" area where GM has (or had?) its headquarters. Horrific crime rates (remember the "Murder City" tag?) abound.

Detroit has also suffered from possibly the most corrupt and inefficient city governance in this nation since the 20-year reign of terror of Coleman A. Young (1973-1993), the first black mayor, whose police chief (once believed to be one of the few honest officials in the administration) was found to have 1.2 million dollars in bribe and graft money hidden in the acoustical tile ceiling of his basement. [Had the black candidate who ran in 1969, the impeccably honest and highly capable Richard Austin, who went on to be Michigan's Secretary of State of 20+ years instead, won instead of lost a squeaker mayoral election, the city's history might have been far less drastic.] Another mayor was just recently ousted on criminal charges. Possessing possibly the foulest profane mouth of any politician in U.S. history, Coleman Young turned white flight from a stream to a torrent with his open hostility to all white people, except a few rich families with names such as Ford and Kresge, with whom he schmoozed shamelessly.

Thanks for that Dr D, it is a fascinating and frightening read.
