Detroit’s Destiny

Paul Kersey, Alternative Right, December 5, 2012

Remember the time you were in class and knew the answer to a question posed by your teacher, but didn’t raise your hand out of fear you might be wrong? Or the time you had a crush on a beautiful girl, but were too afraid to ask her on a date because she might say ‘no’?

Well, we are reaching the political equivalent of that moment—where that self-induced fear and trepidation which precludes us from doing what is rational and natural because of the negative consequences we perceive could arise from such action—with the impending financial collapse of Detroit.

“Impending” is the wrong word. “Imminent” would be, too. “Inevitable” is the apt word.

Why the insolvency of Detroit has been an inevitability now must be stated, because others will raise their hand and supply the wrong answer. The American Thinker will try and blame Democrats and unions without mentioning that America’s most livable big city, Pittsburgh, is filled with both.

Free Republic won’t allow anyone to even mention the word “Black” in the strange color-blind world the owners of that site have cultivated (with a religious zeal and intensity normally seen in a cult).

Beloved conservative economist Thomas Sowell can state it is due to “liberal social policies,” without acknowledging these same policies are in place in cities that attract corporate investments, like Portland, Seattle, Boulder, and Denver. Others will state that a city under “total Democrat hegemony” for 50 years was bound to collapse, maintaining a desire to stay color-blind even in the face of economic Armageddon.

Michael Barone, famous for stating that Hispanics will save the Republican Party, was in Detroit during the Black riots of late July 1967, still the worst riots this nation has ever seen. He wrote an article for the American Enterprise Institute stating how his politics were shaped by this event. Considering that he advocates the continued mass immigration of a people who in 2006 marched in major American cities waving the Mexican flags defiantly, we have to wonder what exactly Barone learned.

The Weekly Standard published Matt Labash’s ode to Detroit’s collapse back in 2008, where he only in passing pointed out the racial significance of the city’s collapse. (In 1960, Detroit was 76 percent White. Though at the time Blacks represented only 24 percent of the population, they were responsible for 65 percent of the violence crime there):

Somewhere along the way, Detroit became our national ashtray, a safe place for everyone to stub out the butt of their jokes.

It happens, though, when you’re from Detroit. In the popular imagination, the Motor City has gone from being the Arsenal of Democracy, so named for their converting auto factories to make the weapons which helped us win World War II, and the incubator of the middle class (now leading the nation in foreclosure rates, Detroit once had the highest rate of home ownership in the country), to being Dysfunction Junction. To Detroit’s credit, they’ve earned it.

How bad is Detroit? It once gave the keys to the city to Saddam Hussein.

Over the last several years, it has ranked as the most murderous city, the poorest city, the most segregated city, as the city with the highest auto-insurance rates, with the bleakest outlook for workers in their 20s and 30s, and as the place with the most heart attacks, slowest income growth, and fewest sunny days. It is a city without a single national grocery store chain. It has been deemed the most stressful metropolitan area in America. Likewise, it has ranked last in numerous studies: in new employment growth, in environmental indicators, in the rate of immunization of 2-year-olds, and, among big cities, in the number of high school or college graduates.

Men’s Fitness magazine christened Detroit America’s fattest city, while Men’s Health called it America’s sexual disease capital. Should the editors of these two metrosexual magazines be concerned for their safety after slagging the citizens of a city which has won the “most dangerous” title for five of the last ten years? Probably not: 47 percent of Detroit adults are functionally illiterate.

Precisely what caused all this mess is perhaps best left to historians. Locals’ ideas for how it happened could keep one pinned to a barstool for weeks: auto companies failing or pushing out to the suburbs and beyond, white flight caused by the ’67 riots and busing orders, the 20-year reign of Mayor Coleman Young who scared additional middle-class whites off with statements such as “The only way to handle discrimination is to reverse it,” freeways destroying mass transit infrastructure, ineptitude, corruption, Japanese cars–take your pick.

We no longer have the luxury of such utopian dreams when it comes to placing the blame for Detroit’s monumental collapse; we must deal with the facts as they are and point out that Detroit has become the best friend of budding photographers hoping to publish the next best-selling coffee table book because it is a city that most resembles the dangerous foreign landscapes pictured in National Geographic. (For an actual coffee table book on modern Detroit, check out The Ruins of Detroit, by French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre .)

Detroit is 82 percent Black. The Great Migration to Detroit of Blacks from the South (exacerbated by Henry Ford’s promise to hire 10 percent of his employees from the Black population) inexorably created White Flight from that city, turning the city once known as “The Paris of the West” into the American version of the Paris Suburbs. Much of the rest of the city been torn down due to neglect.

That Democrat hegemony bemoaned for ruining the city has been overwhelmingly Black for 40 years, starting with the election of Coleman Young, the first Black mayor in the history of Detroit. The mass exodus of people from the city was primarily White back in the 1960s and ’70s (which turned a majority White city into the majority Black mess you have now), but is currently a torrent of Black people fleeing in hopes of finding a place to live with a national grocery chain.

White people fled Black crime then; Black people flee Black crime now.

Mike Brownfield of The Heritage Foundation has said Detroit is “a liberal’s worst nightmare,” but fails to point out that it is Black people fleeing a liberal Black cityto the tune of a 25 percent population decline in 10 years.

What are you afraid of saying Mr. Brownfield? Why can’t you just say Detroit is in trouble because of its majority population (why doesn’t the Detroit Free Pressever run an article that asks, In changing world, Detroit remains overwhelming black?)? Why can’t Dr. Sowell? Why can’t The American Thinker? Why can’tNational Review?

The decline of Detroit (and America’s major cities such as Baltimore, Milwaukee, Memphis, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Cleveland, Newark, New Orleans, Atlanta, Birmingham, Chicago, etc.) is completely racial in nature. Michael Walsh of National Review laments that “some day, we’ll all live in Detroit” without mentioning the fact that Detroit’s lily-white suburbs–where the White descendants of the War of Detroit (the 1967 Black riot) retreated to–are perhaps the nicest in America.

Conservatives must understand that is the Black residents of Detroit who have helped depreciate what was once some of the highest property value in the country to the majority of zip codes in America with the lowest property value.

The Black press seems to understand understands this: The Atlanta Post published a story in 2010 stating that to Abandon Detroit = Abandoning Black America; Detroit post-1967 is a direct representation of Black America.

One mustn’t forget that every student in Detroit now eats for free (courtesy of the state) so that the stigma of being on the free lunch program won’t affect the self-esteem of Black children. As of 2009, more than 300,000 Black residents of Detroit were on food stamps, which equates to 38 percent of the citizenry. One can only guess what that number is now.

With news that Detroit could run out cash by December, Mayor Dave Bing has had to announce massive cuts to the city that contradict the USA Today’s triumphant, front-page, above the fold claim in October of 2011 that Detroit was back! from a few months ago. The Detroit Free Press reported:

Delivering on his pledge to avoid an emergency manager, Mayor Dave Bing said today he will lay off 1,000 employees, implement a hiring freeze and increase his demands on unions to accept 10% pay cuts and deep concessions in health care and pension benefits.

This follows an earlier proclamation from Bing that stopped garbage removal, police patrols and other government services in 20 percent of the city. Who can forget that more than 100 Detroit Department of Transportation bus drivers refused to work and stayed at the Rosa Parks Bus Terminal because of rampaging Black youth (who have helped earn Detroit the honor of America’s Most Dangerous City) attacking them.

That same bus system is so unreliable that LaWanda Flake, a disabled mother of six, recently bartered her home on Craigslist for a van to get her children to school on time. That house once belonged to one of the top Mo’ Town artists (The Supremes), but has since come to represent how quickly property depreciates once Black people assume control of a city.

If Detroit fails, then the unthinkable could happen: Michigan recently passed a “financial martial law” bill which allows the state to assume control of a bankrupt city. Once Detroit fails, an Emergency Manager will put in charge of the city and The American Interest warns us a 21st Century version of a “Plantation” will be created in America:

That’s not the only problem: if the review determines that the city is broke, white Republican officials could end up making decisions that change the fate of a predominantly African American city — imposing cuts in employment, pay, benefits and services that will affect almost everyone who lives in Detroit.

Detroit Free Press columnist Jeff Gerritt lays out what the governor will face if the takeover goes forward:

“Plantation” is a word he’ll hear a lot — in fact, Councilman Kwame Kenyatta already invoked it to describe what would happen if the state took control of the city’s finances in an effort to keep it from running out of money by spring…

Nothing happens in this region outside the context of race. Our often-painful history is the oxygen we breathe, even when we choke on it. We’re all finding it a little hard to breathe just now.

“Plantation” is the wrong word. On actual plantations, people worked. In the case of Detroit, the White Republican “owners” will labor away on behalf of their “slaves.”

As Black people flee Detroit and head into the prosperous lily-white suburbs surrounding the city, they ensure that the middle-class areas will continue to shrink.

The classic 1980s film Robocop teased at that truth when the CEO of OCP said, “Old Detroit has a cancer. That cancer is crime.” In Hollywood’s Detroit, multi-racial gangs, made up primarily of White males, prevailed.

Detroit faces a dual problem of spiking murder rates and a police force that is either incompetent or, increasingly, absent. This has led many residents to take the law into their own hands. The Daily reports, in an article entitled “911 is a Joke”:

Justifiable homicide in the city shot up 79 percent in 2011 from the previous year, as citizens in the long-suffering city armed themselves and took matters into their own hands. The local rate of self-defense killings now stands 2,200 percent above the national average. Residents, unable to rely on a dwindling police force to keep them safe, are fighting back against the criminal scourge on their own. And they’re offering no apologies.

Black dysfunction has, ironically, realized the dream of Reason magazine and Anarcho-Capitalists—a laissez-faire city with few government services. In Detroit, the dream is a nightmare.

In the span of only a few months, two of the former industrial giants that represented America’s once mighty manufacturing base will have become virtually insolvent. Sad that 72 percent Black Birmingham, Alabama, was responsible for the bankruptcy of Jefferson County.

Now, it is precisely those who comprise the 82 percent share of Detroit’s population that will be responsible for the financial ruin of that city, because they were incapable of sustaining the civilization that was left behind to them.

Only a few people will raise their hand and give the correct answer as to why “the Motor City” is finally out of gas.

To admit that Detroit is a failure because of its majority population is not possible in the political climate of 2012 America. To do so would undermine the political aim and drive of what this writer has dubbed “Black-Run America” (BRA).

This does not mean that Black people run actually America—far from it—but that America (corporate, religious, government, legal system, entertainment, etc.) is run for the advancement of Black people, and that to publicly say anything negative about Black people is, more or less, against the law of the land.

The National Question can’t be properly answered until we have the courage to proclaim the truth of Detroit’s demise. “Liberalism,” “socialism,” the “Democrat-controlled political class” are all partial, insufficient answers at best.

It’s about race, stupid.

    Amreners tend to believe that different races have different IQs. I’m not sure I believe this, but other than the fact that most black-majority cities/countries are complete hell holes what evidence is there? Scientific evidence? I mean Europe was also a terrible place to live hundreds of years ago, and the East Asians everyone worships are also living in squalor, and if you reverse the clock back just thirty years, very much more so. Obviously, IQs can’t change within such a short space of time.

    • http://www.facebook.com/george.clark.7545 George Clark

      How exactly was Europe a terrible place to live hundreds of years ago? Give some examples, please. Was it worse than Africa?

      • The__Bobster

        I believe this is the same guy who made an anti-White post yesterday, saying we were as violent as the Bantus. Today, we’re just as stupid as they are. What’s next?

        • alas

          If you’re referring to me then you are mistaken.

      • alas

        Yes I would say it was about as worse as Africa. If we go to the Medieval times it seemed pretty uncivilised. And of course we can go way before that before the Romans came when it would appear to have been little different for many thousands of years. Contemporary history is a very short space of time for humanity, and I find it hard to believe its in our genes if our current-day success as compared to blacks does not seem to have been present for 90%+ of our existence.

        Still, all for all-white countries but for other reasons, not IQ.

        • 1stworlder

          Funny there are still 2000yo+ still working roman concrete aqueducts still providing water to european cities, and I drank from one. Today disngenuous whites fly to africa to dig wells the natives are too stupid to build themselves

        • bluffcreek1967

          One could certainly find a host of uncivilized things during the Medieval period. Life itself, at any point in human history, has its brutal moments. But even during this period, Whites were able to advance themselves and their culture. Their way of life, in effect, was still vastly superior to that of Blacks who were scattered throughout the African continent. If one was given a choice whether to live in Europe during the Medieval period or during the same time period in Africa, I’m sure most people would choose the Medieval period.
          As far as the Romans are concerned, they had not only advanced aqueducts, but they established well-paved roads throughout much of their empire. If my memory serves me correct, they were one of the first to do this on such a wide-scale basis. The Romans also had a complex and a well thought out political system which again is suggestive of their superior IQ levels. The African Blacks had no such thing. This is not to suggest that African Blacks had no societal structure and culture among their tribes, it just wasn’t as advanced as that of Whites.

          • The Verdict of History

            The study of European exceptionalism and primacy is the study of history itself!

        • Liberalsuck

          If we were the same (Africans vs. Europeans), then why is it that Africans never made a seaworthy vessel or explored the entire world or made any of the inventions that white men had? Why is it that when Africans are poor they resort to violence and depraved behavior, whereas whites use that time to feed their families or improve their lives? Africa and other third-world countries are full of natural resources. They never utilize them. They accuse whites and Asians of ‘exploiting’ them when we come in and make some useful out of their natural resources.

        • schmenz

          My dear friend, you need to brush up on your medieval history a bit more. “Uncivilized” is hardly the word to use about a time that gave us Dante, Aquinas, Louis IX and the Gothic Cathedrals.,

        • pcmustgo

          Yeah, how about diversity (over-diversity) tends to lead to nothing but ethnic bickering, squabbling, tension, competition, resentment, hostility , etc which is f-ing awful to experience first-hand, in person, no less 100’s of times. Total nightmare.

          • pcmustgo

            I don’t enjoy the hateful experiences I have with East Indians or Asians any more than the ones I have with Blacks.

    • Exoplanet Finder

      Another great Kersey article. If you don’t have his book look it up, along with ‘The Uniqueness of Western Civilization by Duchesne, a Canadian professor. Eight Mile Rd. in Detroit is a civilizational border just as is the Rio Grande, the Straits of Gibraltar and the Bosporus, or rather a little town west of Adrianople. Race realism hits close to home for Detroiters whose homes were destroyed by the descendents of an invasion force from the South that took place during the 40s, during the city’s glory years, which was fruitful, reproduced, and rioted twenty years later. It seems the law of unintended consequences, and mirrors the Third World mass-invasion of the entire country, which began- you know it- in the mid-1960s, an era justifiably seen as the glory years of the nation. I suppose Quigley was right when he said nations are blinded by the mirage of immortality, the moment when they begin a suicidal collapse. Check out Universal History and the Telos of Human Progress: http://www.amazon.com/Universal-History-Telos-Human-Progress/dp/0615658873/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354750164&sr=1-1&keywords=tamm+universal+history for these ups and downs.

      • Skincognito

        No more eight mile divide bro. This is not mayor Young’s Detroit. Warren, Southfield and even Farmington, where I went to high school, are being rapidly Africanized. But you are correct to the extent that the mythos of the base-line does resemble the other cultural/racial borders that you mentioned. Of course Mexicans, Morrocans and Turks know this (as do sub-Saharan Detroiters) better than us and their “migration” is quite consciously an invasion. What would Charles Martel have to say about his Germanic, Christian brethren of the 21st century? Religion aside, how about Arminius?

        • Katherine McChesney

          Oh, no, not Farmington. I have relatives who live there.

          • Skincognito

            Are they armed?

    • bluffcreek1967

      The evidence for different racial IQs is actually quite compelling. I would urge you to check of out some of the books on this very subject offered on Amren’s site.
      As far as Europe being a terrible place to live hundreds of years ago, this may be true according to modern standards. But remember that over 500 years ago, while White Europe had already experienced its Renaissance and Protestant Reformation, Blacks in Africa were still living in mud huts, wearing loin cloths and chasing each other around with spears! Even now, in the 21st century, Africa is STILL a mess and Blacks are STILL unable to run a country or a city halfway effectively without the aid of Whites. Not some things, but EVERYTHING they touch turns to waste!
      As far as the Asians, they have progressed much further than Blacks. Yes, many Asian nations are poor, but the higher calibre Asian groups (e.g., Chinese, Japanese, Koreans) have shown to be much more advanced, intelligent and industrious. They may lack in the creative realm and in critical-thinking skills (which Whites possess to greater degrees), but their culture, their way of life is light-years above the culture (if one wishes to call it that?) of African and American Blacks. I will not overtly praise Asians, but look how they conduct themselves as compared to the modern Black man. If you cannot see the difference, there is probably little I can do to help you.
      If you were to spend more time in the presence of Blacks, you would not question their low IQs. It would be obvious. Even Liberals, in a sense, don’t question the low IQs of Blacks. In their own way, they subtly acknowledge it. The only difference is that they blame it on ‘racism’ and ‘institutional discrimination’ rather than their inherent low IQs.

      • Nathanwartooth

        While I and many others enjoyed your post the person you were replying to either didn’t read it or doesn’t want to understand.

        He’s obviously some DWL (disingenuous white liberal) who got a link to this site from some other place and now he’s trolling because he thinks we are a bunch of backwards racists.

        What’s funny is that he wont read any of the material on the AmRen site or do any research but he’ll post in the comments like he is some genius and we are all the stupid ones.

        You can tell this by when he said “Where is the scientific research?”. Really? You are on the best race realist site on the internet and are asking for proof?

        • Liberalsuck

          You can’t argue with liberals at all. You can have all the facts in the world but it won’t change their mind, nor will they ever admit any truth to what you say. Doesn’t’ matter whether you’re talking about global warming or racial issues or the economy or healthcare or taxes or rich people or gun rights, etc. Their standard response is to do one or all of the following: get mad, scream at you, interrupt you, call you names, tell you that you are ‘ignorant’, vandalize property, shout you down, attack you physically, destroy your career, harass you, etc.

            No, Liberals see what they want to believe will happen in the future, as humanity is “progressing” and things are improving in the world. “We have a black president”, hurray, America is making progress.

            Erm where did I “get mad, scream at you, interrupt you, call you names, tell you that you are ‘ignorant’, vandalize property, shout you down, attack you physically, destroy your career, harass you”. I just asked a question mate why don’t you calm down I read this website every day I’m a race realist (I think race matters) just I’m not convinced about the IQ. I posted a question politely on this site I don’t expect to be personally insulted, which is what you are saying liberals do.

        • alas

          I am not a DWL I am a race realist as I have said before. Please don’t insult me personally I hate it when liberals do it I dislike it even more from you someone who I would imagine should know better. Admittedly I haven’t read any material because I am doing a degree right now any reading I do has to help me there. I am not saying ‘you are wrong’ or whatever, merely asking you to provide some information to me, someone who uses such ambiguous phrases as “I’m not sure I believe this” implying I’m willing to be persuaded.

          And I did ask ‘where is the scientifc research’ – someone ‘exoplanet finder’ was kind enough to enlighten me. So no need to be offensive pal why don’t we keep personal insults to a minimum and just respond to my reasonable question (given the website after all).

      • Liberalsuck

        What’s worse about white liberals is they make other white people ahve to live with socialism and diversity. They (the rich white liberals) use the same tax loopholes and ways to avoid legally paying large amounts of taxes, but want other whites to pay lots of taxes to support parasites and unproductive scumbags. The same white liberals live in nice rich white neighborhoods, and yet they think other whites should live with diversity. As you said, the only thing is that white liberals get away with their unPC views and actions because they have been deemed as the ‘smart ones.’

        • pcmustgo

          They are mostly in denial of or clueless about the fact that their hoods lack large amounts of diversity… They are just clueless on race in general.

      • AngryWhiteMan

        Why not “overtly praise” Asians? We have as much to learn from them as they have to learn from us. The only lesson most people have to learn from blacks is how to party

        • bluffcreek1967

          Why should I praise Asians? Should I praise them because they are intelligent and industrious? Whites already have the market on that – or at least they did. Should I praise them because they understand what Blacks are truly like? Whites already know this – or at least they did. Should I praise them because they are proud of their race and culture and unwilling to assimilate in a foreign land? Whites are proud of their race and culture too – or at least they were in the past. Should I praise them because they place great importance on education and hard work? Whites lead the world on such things – or at least they did at one time. Should we praise them because they have accomplished great things? White, Western countries have been the envy of the world – but we are now self-destructing before the eyes of the world! No, I will not praise them for accomplishing some things that Whites have already accomplished with greater success. I will also not praise them for recognizing the obvious about Blacks. But I will praise Whites when they return to the sort of common sense and wisdom our racial ancestors had!

      • pcmustgo

        Blacks also have other serious behavioral problems besides low IQs.

      The Roman Empire could have colonized 17th and 18th century sub saharan africa just as easily as the 17th and 18th century Europeans. IN fact the people of the Roman Empire had a higher standard of living than the people of modern day sub saharan africa.

        Actually, “free money” is pretty hard to turn away from. The government is to blame. Lots of white kids living off trust funds or inherited wealth too. The idle rich and the idle poor have trouble getting motivated.

    • pcmustgo

      At the end of the day, it’s perhaps not super relevant whether it’s nature or nurture. Cultures are also radically different and hard to change. I don’ t want to live around High-IQ Hostiles either. Many super hard-working and successful East Indians and Asians also hate and resent us, and are taught to in the schools….

      It’s extremely hard to interact/live with people who hate/resent/are jealous (of) you. Period.

        • Liberalsuck

          They’re invaded because most whites don’t have the brains nor balls to even reverse the process. These majority white countries called white people in the US ‘racist’ for having segregation, yet these same people are having a change of mind about us ‘racist white americans’ as their countries are becoming more and more diverse. It’s like whites can’t take our word for it; they almost have to invite this chaos and drama into their lands before they see what we meant. It’s very aggravating dealing with liberal whites!

            German banks were run by Germans. They and the big industrialists supported Hitler. Later Hitler turned on them. Hitler’s original banker, the pure German Schacht was typical of this class. He started out running the finances of Nazi Germany and ended up in a concentration camp.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            In addition, Walter Rathenau was the German businessman who organized German financial and industrial resources for the Kaiser and Generals Hindenburg and Ludendorff during World War One. Rathenau was Jewish, but did the best job he could for his country, emphasizing manufacturing shortcuts (he had been head of the electrical engineering company his father founded: AEG) to minimize the effects of the British naval blockade. He was assassinated by radicals in June 1922.

            Rathenau was a loyal German.

          • pcmustgo

            I am half Jewish… Hitler didn’t have to kill the jews- he could have easily just kicked them out. He also didn’t have to kill Poles (incredibly white white people in my view, full of blonds), invade France , etc. Stop idolizing Hitler. It’s sick. I don’t get how the Jews are parasites. They are a pretty productive group of people. They open many hospitals and charities that benefit ALL Americans. They do not hate white people. Jews basically view themselves as “white + jewish”. Whites who happen to be jewish. And that’s how non-whites view Jews.

            I will not push you further to love Jews or support Israel. I will say that just as you call Jews parasites, many non-whites rationalize calling whites parasites for living off the fruits of their (working class, sh-t job ) labor. For stealing Amer-Indian land.

            Perfect explanation of Europeans. Don’t forget how Left Wing White Europeans naturally are and don’t forget Europeans have issues with being jealous of Americans… America-bashing , etc. One of the excuses white europeans used to bash us was how “racist” white Americans are. Europeans also have “issues” with Americans.

      I would give them all the money in the world on one condition: They had to stay in those areas where they are already the majority and are not allowed to come into white majority areas for ANY reason.

    • mobilebay

      Yes, QD – I’ve seen the clip played several times on TV where the City Councilwoman is speaking about “bringing home the bacon.” She referred to the overwhelming votes for Obama from the city and now wants “payback.”

    • pcmustgo

      I see us dropping California and saying “let them (the Mexicans) have it”. It’s too expensive to maintain and basically ship white taxpayer money to fund little Mexico.

    In Alabama, we refer to Detroit as “the South’s revenge.”

    • Sloppo

      Yes. The freed slaves did what the southern armies were not able to do.

    • Skincognito

      Ah, but many of them are moving back. Rosy-cheeked, blond Detroiter here, and yes many blacks are obsessed with the South, especially Atlanta. Also recall that much of Detroit’s White working class hails from the South, and that the city was the Klan capital of the US on the eve of WWII. Let’s generally refrain from postbellum sectional hostility.

      European man is endangered. I hate sounding like a broken record, but articles like this demand my reiteration of a Detroit-centric forecast for the West. Dear Lord, I hope I’m wrong. I’ve made this case a lot lately, perhaps too much, but my point remains salient: we can’t run, we can’t hide, we used to fight.

      • Jeff

        There isn’t anywhere left to run to at this point. If we all move to Montana or Idaho, they will start dumping Somali “refugees” there. Where to? There’s nowhere to go.

        • Liberalsuck

          By that point, I hope (and maybe I’m too optimistic) that the white people of Montana or Idaho, for example, will be openly prowhite and will fight the invasion. There’s got to come a breaking point where enough white people get so fed up that they fight back and literally make an area for whites only and literally kick out the racial groups they don’t want on their turf.

          • saxonsun

            Oh,and I do it in the hyper-politically correct environment of NYC…. amongst many white liberals who “don’t get it” or don’t even know how to begin to respond to this behavior.

        • pcmustgo

          That’s why I hope Europeans save Europe for us. Connect with Europeans, let them know how bad the situation is here (and our coming minority status) and plead and beg for them to save a space for us in our (true) homeland… us mongrelized Europeans. Us Americans.

      • The Verdict of History

        This was one of the chief reasons why some prescient Northern White conservatives during the antebellum period were so terrified of abolitionism. They new the implications. They foresaw the day that blacks would migrate en mass to Northern industrial and financial centers and tear asunder the fabrics of community, infrastructure and economic progress.

      Exactly. The entitlement mentality destroys every thing in its wake. The best thing to do it ignore these ‘people’. The more food you feed to worms, the more they eat. Stop feeding them is the only answer.

      • Liberalsuck

        That’s just it. We can’t simply ignore those people. They follow us all the time! They recreate the same damn problems everywhere and most whites don’t have any balls (or the spine, to my lady friends reading this) to tell these people straight out, “You aren’t welcome here. We don’t want you here. Go somewhere else.”

        • pcmustgo

          I do… or rather call out their disgusting behavior. Even middle class and educated blacks can engage in some serious racial nastiness.

      The key to preventing that is to use the handouts as an incentive for them to stay put and concentrated in only a few areas. Give them free food and housing, (we’ll end up paying for them in some way no matter what), but concentrate it in ghettos like Detroit and East St. Louis. If we do it under cloak of urban renewal and helping the poor, we’ll even get the ‘rats to go along with it.

      I’m White and don’t live anywhere near Detroit or Michigan….no doubt I’m at fault too.

      Frankly, I don’t care anymore–no amount of ‘stimulus’ will change the fact that Detroit and other cities like it are DEAD and nothing will change it.

      Glad I don’t live anywhere near there….

      • Liberalsuck

        You’re at fault because you have white skin. That’s enough for them.

        • pcmustgo

          I’m half jewish and have white skin (blue veins, “blue blood” at least technically) , light hair and eyes. I am blamed too.

          The demonization of whites rivals the demonization of Jews during that period of Germany’s history. Perhaps it’s worse because several non-white groups all gang up on us at once.

    White culture is “don’t blame me, but blame you, not me.”
    So “don’t blame me, white, but blame you, black, not me, white”.

      Black culture is “don’t blame me, but blame you, not me.”
      So “don’t blame me, black, but blame you, white, not me, black.”

        After blended each other and influenced each other for about 200 years, there is not much difference between white americans and black americans culturely, except for skin color, white and black.
        Culturely, bad influence on each other, basically, white is the same as black.

        • Skincognito

          This article is about the loss of a once-beautiful Western metropolis. What are you saying? I know crooked hat, saggin draws, freckle faced wiggers who still, somehow, believe in our race. Yes they are cultural monstrosities, but hell I’m heavily tattooed, so I am as well, right? White Detroiters, like true Boers, might be incomprehensible to outsiders, but there is a method to our madness, a reason for our rage. Oh and your syntax and spelling are atrocious. In short, Detroit blends as well as oil and water, except for the 5% or so of race-mixers, but they will go the way of the Liger. Good night.

        • IKantunderstand

          Does the “78” refer to your I.Q.? Because I think you might have exaggerated a bit.

        • pcmustgo

          HUGE differences between Black and White Americans, between our cultures. We are different cultures. We speak differently, for one. It’s true, “American Culture”, such as our music (which I love) , cuisines, etc, was an interplay, of groups borrowing off each other. But the blending never went beyond that.

          • pcmustgo

            We are not just different races, blacks and whites. We are different cultures. By and large.

    • Libearlsuck

      Black culture is “it’s somebody else’s fault; not mine.” Black culture is to take the fish from others, but never learn how to fish on your own. Black culture equates other people’s successes as ‘exploiting’ them and ‘getting privileges we don’t.’

  • Strider73

    (from the article): How bad is Detroit? It once gave the keys to the city to Saddam Hussein.

    Apparently the author forgot that during the 1980s Saddam was a “good guy” (compliant US puppet), waging a long and bloody war against those “eeevill” Eye-Ranians. A quick image search will turn up a famous photo of Saddam and Donald Rumsfeld, then Reagan’s Mideast envoy, having a hearty handshake.

  • Dr. X

    What happened to Detroit has occurred in other formerly prosperous Great Lakes industrial centers like Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Milwaukee, and Niagara Falls. Perhaps not quite exactly as bad as in Detroit — but close. All of these cities have dysfunctional neighborhoods populated by violent and unemployable Bantus. If you go five or six blocks from the tourist areas of Niagara Falls, you might as well be in Nairobi. And sixty or seventy years ago, the East Side of Buffalo was populated by Polish whites, who, although hardly brilliant or educated, were hardworking and neat and kept their houses painted and gardens planted. Now some of those neighborhoods look like Mogadishu after having been overrun by the sons and daughters of Africa, and the city is constantly seeking funds to demolish the 10,000+ vacant homes there before the squatters and crack dealers burn them down just for entertainment. Probably 95% of the violent crime in the city ocurs in this predominantly black area.

    So goes Detroit, so goes America. Detroit is a microcosm of our future dystopia unless something very radical happens to change our current trajectory.

    Detroit also has a large Muslim community. Most of these people are Lebanese who were recruited to work at Ford Motor Company I am surprised that they have not tried to clean the city up.

    • AngryWhiteMan

      The Arabs mostly live in Dearborn not Detroit.

    • schmenz

      Lebanon, I believe, is a mostly Christian nation, though there are many Muslims there as well. Not all Arabs are Muslims.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Yeah, the Assyrian ethnic group is overwhelmingly Christian. Look up “Chaldean”. There used to be lots of those in Iraq and Syria.

        I think most of the Lebanese Christians have left that place since the beginning of the civil war there 30 years ago.

  • Jim G

    Inviting Blacks to live among us is like eating a tape
    worm.

    Blacks will have the White people of Michigan
    pay for Detroit’s
    upkeep. There is no way other way. Blacks cannot pay even if they wanted
    to. Blacks do not have the intelligence necessary
    to engage in productive labor that would generate enough money.

    Note that the Civil Rights Movement was not about Blacks
    demanding that the government remove restriction (Jim Crow Laws) on Blacks and
    thus free them up to build their own factories, office buildings, skyscrapers, hotels,
    schools, restaurants, houses and neighborhood.

    No, the Civil Rights Movement was about Blacks forcing
    Whites to give them all the wonderful goods that Whites produce. (Especially their beautiful White daughters)
