I think people would be rather surprised it they took a detailed look at the numbers on muslims in the USA.
The last I read, Michigan ranked 6th in total muslim citizens with California, New York, and New Jersey leading the list. Even Texas made the top 10, coming in at 8th.
Detroit is a whipping boy but in the end I think they’ll come out on top because of the very things people ignore. There is a lot of high dollar property being bought at bargain prices along the river. If I were looking to invest in a future, I wouldn’t be looking at Chicago, NY, or LA. I’d be looking at Detroit because the state is actually trying to ease restrictions and taxes on business.
I used to work on the border between Detroit and Dearborn. It’s not “politically correct” [chortle] to observe on FR, but the ME’s saved Dearborn from the rampaging horde.
I’ve been told that many of the new small businesses in Dearborn are owned by Christians who escaped persecution in their native ME lands.
