I guess what I meant was that such a sharp divide by race was the kind of thing you only saw in South Africa under Apartheid. At least until the Democrats running Detroit managed to reproduce it.

“What will eventually happen to all the people who live there”

They will continue to collect handouts from taxpayers and commit crime. They will continue to be recipients of funds from government anti-poverty programs. They will continue to think of themselves as victims and think they are entitled to have other people support them and their children.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder doesn't understand. The crooks running Detroit are NOT unhappy. They're dems and don't give a hoot about the broken down city. They've got theirs - and they don't want anyone coming in with anything other than cash.

Snyder's a fool for getting involved.

Detroit is a huge success for the Democrat Party. It votes about 99% Democrat. It is the reason Michigan has Democrat Senators and votes Democrat in presidential elections. The problem with socialism is that you run out of other peoples money. That is what happened in Detroit. They ran out of other peoples money.

Lots of majority black countries run by blacks are just as corrupt as Detroit - and just as violent and broke. The Governor of Michigan needs to stay out of there until the 'officials' ask for help. Which will have the 12th of never...

And Detroit hasn't 'run out of other people's money'. Not yet. I'll bet every 'program' dems have invented to keep people broken and dependent is ope rating in Detroit - on our dime. And that half the population is collecting 'disability'...

“Detroit hasn’t ‘run out of other people’s money’”

Detroit’s Mayor and everyone else familiar with Detroit’s finances dissagrees with you. It is only massive inflows of money from the State of Michigan and the federal government that keeps Detroit from declaring bankruptcy. If your solution is non-Detroit taxpayers should continue to send good money after bad, it is just making the problem worse.

Detroit politicians want other people to fund their corrupt poiticians and their thieving residents. The governor should say no.

“Actually this would appear to be the perfect job for Mitt Romney. Can’t imagine in a million years though why he would want it.”

Agree but the 82% in Detroit would never allow it. Actually, he (Romney) would have been perfect for POTUS but 51% were to stupid to understand that. I do fear for or Republic........

I totally agree with you detective. The governor should say no... Maybe Michael Moore can throw a few of his millions into the pot - he helped create the victim mind-set in Detroit... and he's an idiot dem - good match and all...
