I was pretty young when the Detroit riots in 68 took place
My in-laws were living out around 14 Mile. 8 Mile is the dividing line between Detroit City and the suburbs. The city is 85% black, the 'burbs are 90% white. The rioting got out as far as 6 Mile. If it had gone two more miles, an impromptu militia of armed white suburbanites was waiting to meet them. That would have made all the history books. The National Guard was sent to keep that from happening.
