White House to Announce $300M in Aid Friday to Make Detroit Safer, Erase Blight

Todd Spangler, Detroit Free Press, September 26, 2013

Nearly $300 million in aid for Detroit—from federal and state coffers, private businesses and charitable foundations—will be announced Friday as Obama administration officials visit the city to discuss what can be done to help eradicate blight, improve transportation, encourage new business and make residents safer.

The funding will include $150 million in blight eradication and community redevelopment, including $65 million in Community Development Block Grant funding—which had already been awarded over two years but could not be accessed by the city. An additional $25 million could help hire as many as 150 firefighters in the city.

Some $24 million in federal resources that had been tied up will go to repairing buses and installing security cameras, part of an overall $140-million investment in transit systems. And several charitable groups — the Ford Foundation, Kresge Foundation and Knight Foundation—will put millions into spurring entrepreneurship and creating jobs.

Gene Sperling, the head of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council and an Ann Arbor native, briefed reporters on some the plans Thursday evening, saying Friday’s meeting at Wayne State University is “the first of many efforts that the administration will engage in with the city of Detroit.”

Many details were still to come out Friday.

“We’ve found significant resources that we believe can be unlocked and expedited and leveraged to have significant impact on the economy of Detroit,” Sperling said.


Sperling wasn’t immediately able to break down just how much of the $300 million represents new funding and how much had already been awarded to Detroit but, for whatever reason, hadn’t reached the city before. But he said much of it represented an effort by adminisitration officials to scour their departments for funding that Detroit could access.

For instance, in the case of $25 million to be used for firefighters, the funding, Sperling said, had “been accumulating for years” but could not be accessed. The $65 million in CDBG funding includes $33 million that had been withheld from the last fiscal year because the city did not meet required obligations to access it.

    “what can be done to help eradicate blight, improve transportation, encourage new business and make residents safer.”? Well…that’s a tough question…remove blacks?

    • Whitetrashgang

      Well remove blacks and replace them with trained gorillas. I mean a gorilla can drive a bus , or taxi. And the gorilla doesn’t need a 40 and a fat white woman .Then move all the blacks to the Kennedy compound and surrounding area.

    • SFLBIB

      Remove the Democratic Party.

    • bilderbuster

      That’s not eradicating blight.
      That’s transferring blight.

  • MekongDelta69

    Three trillion dollars is not going to help this black sewer.

    • Viking_61

      If $113 billion in federal aid since 2005 can’t “uplift” and “rebuild” a New Orleans of 450,000 people (pre-Katrina population), what will a mere $300 million do for a more destitute Detroit whose population is 700,000?

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Or billions to Haiti. Nothing changed.

  • Dave4088

    So this will buy black Detroit what, like 1-2 years before everything goes to hell again? Detroit will only recover if blacks are banned from from the city limits and beyond.

    • D.B. Cooper

      You are still NOT looking at the ROOT CAUSE. You can get rid of every single black, but it means nothing if the white liberal poison (Hanoi Jane, Sean Penn, John McCain, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the Clintons) are all still here. The white liberal poison has infected both political parties, and you need to reboot one of them.

      • WmarkW

        Except that, as Jared T points out, liberalism hasn’t ruined Portland, Marin County or Vermont.

        • leftists are delusional

          There exists a ratio of White to black population at which a progressive “utopia” is guaranteed to fall apart.

          I am not certain what the exact ratio is, but suffice it to say it is somewhere between Detroit’s 82.7% black to 7.8% White population and Portland’s 72.2% White to 6.3% black population.

          • tickyul

            It start to feel REALLY nightmarish when THEY get to be over 5-6% of the population.

          • Jefferson

            Blacks make up only 6 percent of San Francisco’s population, yet they made up over 50 percent of all people in that city who were arrested for a violent crime in 2012.

          • tickyul

            Many of these stats are BS, Urban Americans have a much bigger presence than the stats reflect.

          • fuzzypook

            I have always wondered about this. I read many times that bantus make up about 12% of the population. I have a hard time believing it is not more.

          • Brian

            They are very efficient at spreading dysfunction. How much cancer, as a percentage of body mass, does it take to kill you?

          • Jesse James

            What about Spokane’s 3 %? Is that low enough so that our grandfather’s and grandmother’s are safe?

          • tickyul

            I live in Spokebabwe, sorry, those numbers are BS….Urban Americans are all over the place…at least 5-6%.
            And yes, THEY commit a TON of crime in this area.

            RIP Shorty, 88 years old and slaughtered by Urban American Yutes.

          • fuzzypook

            Not for long. The feds are now looking at you by zip code. If you don’t have enough bantus they will work to correct your problem. You must enjoy the wonders of diversity.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Planned NWO map of USA.

          • fuzzypook

            I see the map, my long term goal is to move to the land of my ancestors on dad’s side. West Virginia. The diversity is at a very low minimum and the state is beautiful.

        • D.B. Cooper

          I went to middle school in Marin County. I lived in Novato, right off of HWY 101 at Nave Dr. I know that cesspool really well. Propose a Section 8 in that area, and the libs will gladly think it’s a good idea.
          In fact, infesting these liberal areas with diversity just might be a great idea.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            D.B., sec 8 is all over Novato now.
            Hamilton Field was closed by the military, Sec 8 apartment houses built. Novato is increasingly black and no longer safe.

            About a year ago, one of my Marin Co. family members [still white Belvedere] stopped at the Ignacio Safeway, just off the freeway. While she was in the store, two rival gang bangers had an altercation that resulted in a shootout.

        • fuzzypook

          Right, but those areas don’t have the large numbers of blacks needed for the equation. Liberalism + white people = a civilization of silly people. Liberalism + significant black population = degradation.

        • itdoesnotmatter

          Uh, about Marin. Commie NWO chapter “One Bay Area” has ordered Marin County and other successful areas to get to work on ruination efforts.

          A Sec. 8 voucher was given to the seediest looking unmarried with kid black woman you ever want to see. Where? In Tiburon, a millionaire Marin County enclave.
          It was on TV lamenting loud and black that her daughter was the only colored chile in the grammar school and isn’t that a DISGRACEFUL situation?

          Other Marin areas are building “affordable housing,” as fast as they can.

        • Katherine McChesney

          George Lucas threatened to building public housing on his property in Marin Country. I’d imaging his marriage to a black woman influenced him.

      • Dave4088

        I understand that, but I think it goes without saying on this website. But you’re overlooking the “white” ethnic group that funds, encourages and enables the loony white leftists within our ranks via their collective wealth, inordinate political influence and control of the major media and Hollywood.

      • Dave4088

        I kind of see your point, but the fact is that white liberals lost control of Detroit decades ago and was replaced with black militancy starting with Coleman Young. White libtards are only guilty of pushing the false narrative that racist, uncaring whites, a flagging economy and free trade ruined the city.

        Detroit isn’t so much an indictment of white liberalism as it is African DNA.

      • Garrett Brown

        Actually statistics show that as long as a city is still majorily white it does just fine even if their entire council is liberal.(see basically every city in northern California and the entire state of Washington)

      • Brian

        I would much rather live in a Democratic-run city full of white liberals, than any kind of gov’t, surrounded by Bantus.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Why is that? White liberals would lobby for public housing for blacks in a New York minute. They think that life is enriched when Whites reside among blacks.

          • Brian

            I’m assuming in this scenario that the Dem-run city is groidless in perpetuity.

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        Yes, socialism turns every country where it is practiced into a third world hell hole. Hell holes like Finland, Germany, Norway, etc.

        Oh, wait! Those places were great places to live BEFORE they started allowing non-white immigration.

        Now Haiti is a country with no taxes and no government. There’s a paradise!

        • NorthSea

    • John_HD

      About as much time as it takes blacks to destroy brand spanking new housing developments (projects). It’s not the buildings, and it’s not the city. It’s the residents. What a sewer this country is. One wonders how their new Mexican overlords will view and treat Blacks in 25 years time. Almost undoubtedly not with anywhere near the suicidal charity and near reverence with which Whites have treated them. Their comeuppance will not be pretty judging by present day Mexican-Black relations. They’re so shortsighted that all they can do is celebrate Whitey’s relative demographic demise. The EBT spigot will be turned off in due course.

  • Puggg

    It’ll be a waste if it’s not used for colonization, the mid-19th century American interpretation of the word.

    Otherwise, Detroit is where perfectly good money goes to die.

  • Luca

    $300 million is the leading edge of the tip of the iceberg. Hell, Mike Tyson could blow through that in one year.

  • John Ulfsson

    Might as shovel it into a furnace.

      • John_HD

        Change we can believe in!

  • Dave4088

    This sounds like a gigantic reparations payment to me. I wonder how many millions of the 300 million will wind up in the personal bank accounts of black city leaders?

    • 1proactive2

      You’re spot-on. What you described has been the pattern of Detroit politicians for decades. Literally billions of dollars have disappeared. The bruthas and sistas gotta get paid, as they see it, and they believe they’re entitled to it.

    • fuzzypook

      Exactly. It will be no different than wasting money on African bantus. The money will end up in the pockets of the corrupt bantu “chiefs”

    • Katherine McChesney

      ‘…of black city officials?’

      And in obama’s personal stash.

    • I doubt it is that sinister. Instead, any money Detroit gets is likely used to pay the salaries of “middle class” blacks who are assigned do-nothing, makework jobs at city government offices. In short, what I have long described as “paid adult daycare”. The city of Detroit and Detroit Public Schools currently pretend to employ 27,000 people. If these freeloaders are paid an average of $50,000 each to show up to their offices and gossip on the telephones, this means that $1.35 billion every year is being wasted paying Africans to warm chairs in Detroit.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I would like to know what happened to that $50,000,000 the closet democrat, George W. Bush pledged in African aid. Were those two extra black votes you got worth it, Dubya?

  • Evette Coutier

    More of OUR money down the sewer.

    • D.B. Cooper

      I know where that money is going:
      1. Mayor Dave Bing’s new Rolls Royce.
      2. The mayor’s new mansion because two aren’t good enough.
      3. Detroit Police Chief Warren C. Evans’s golden parachute.
      4. Detroit Public Schools General Superintendent Connie K. Calloway’s gold plated door handles.

      You white people of Michigan are sooo nice. I mean, you sure do work hard to give your money to the disadvantaged black people of Detroit.
      Mayor Bing:

      • Bud Smith

        In all fairness, Mayor Bing seems to be a decent honest man. It wouldn’t matter if a 300 IQ alien from space became Mayor. Detroit can never recover as long as it is populated with blacks. Detroit is not a city, it is a negro habitat. Without white taxpayers putting money into it, the animals would die.

        • NorthSea

          Applies to Hollywood, as well.

  • Truthseeker

    And when the money’s all gone and Detroit continues to fail, they’ll claim that it’s because of “racism” and white people not doing enough to prop them up. As long as you’re black, you’ve got a built-in entitlement to free stuff.

  • libertarian1234

    “White House to Announce $300M in Aid Friday to Make Detroit Safer, Erase Blight”
    He’s helping “his people.”

    Does the community organizer think he’s going to have enough money to throw at black failure when New Orleans, Los Angeles, Atlanta, E. St. Louis, Gary, East Chicago, Newark, Camden, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Stockton, and about a half dozen others fall by the wayside, just like Detroit?

    And since most of the above are eventually going to need National Guard troops patrolling the streets to keep out-of-control black crime down somewhat is he going to help the governors of these states pay for the troop protection?

    I’ve got a hunch that if we get through these next few years without exploding into civil unrest on a grand scale, the real damage this black miscreant is causing will carry on for years to come. His years in office will amount to such societal and economic devastation the country will never recover.

    Unfortunately civil war would be a blessing.

    • Sick of it

      As always, only if the right side wins (and quickly at that).

    • John_HD

      As demographic change continues there will be fewer tax contributors and far more tax consumers. We’re already in hock up to our eyebrows. Will not surprise me when the dollar gets dumped as the world’s reserve currency. This whole multicultural utopian massive debt house of cards is set to explode in no more than 15 years. God help our kids and grandkids.

    • dmxinc

      Yes he does. They can print it. Spend it and devalue the currency you’ve worked to attain.

      Their dollars will be just as good as yours.

      Where are the Republicans standing up and declaring “No more money for Detroit or any other failed Democrat city/state”?

    • Katherine McChesney

      Somehow it’s strange that our government would give to a city that offers nothing at all of benefit to our country. Detroit is a black hole.

    • WASP

      I still can’t believe all those White fools who voted for him twice and helped put him in the White House. Unbelievable.

  • IKantunderstand

    Detroit is a lost cause. The money should be immediately allocated to those communities that border Detroit, as well as those communities that Detroiters are able to reach by public transport. I would imagine that these funds would go a long way to arm every White person with their own AK 47 and sufficient ammo.

  • So CAL Snowman

    I wonder how they arrived at the $300 million figure, an arbitrary number to be sure. I bet they felt that it seemed large enough (to the pea brained liberals) to actually make an impact, but not large enough to attract the attention of the Rinos.

    • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

      that’s a small portion of the estimated amount the libturds are going to need to put Hillary on the throne…you can bet your @ss that “aid” money finds it way back into the DNC coffers.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker than confirmed Hillarys run for President. It said “Ready for Hillary”. I say she will win as the GOP has nothing to offer any more. They are all traitors to the party.

    The new American way, reward failure. It’s like giving money to a junkie where the handout will end up wasted and completely unaccounted for. That has been Detroit’s pattern for the past 45 years.

    I attended Wayne State U. which is located near downtown. That was back in the 70s, and I had a ringside seat when “King” Coleman Young took over. It has been downhill ever since.

    Brutha Young was the first black mayor of Detroit, and it’s been chocolate since. Billions of state and federal bucks have been given to Detroit only to find it vanish or if visible, wasted on perks for the local chocolate politicians.

    This insanity is brought to you by Obambi and the Democratic party. When will it end?

    • Brian

      When the EBT/SNAP cards flash ‘$0.00’.

      • 1proactive2

        I’ve heard about EBT cards, but what is a “SNAP” card?

        • Brian

          EBT is Electronic Benefit Transfer. SNAP = Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. EBT is just the card system; SNAP is the food stamp program itself.

          • 1proactive2

            Thanks. I wonder how many of these programs now exist. It would be the ultimate humiliation for me and mine to use welfare programs. We view it as a sign of laziness and theft.

            My father, well into his seventies, got too bored as a retired meat cutter, and being a great cook, a skill he learned in the Navy during WWII, he took a part time gig as a short order cook. In a year he saved 15 grand. He viewed people taking government handouts as parasites.

    Nearly $300 million in aid for Detroit

    Yeah, that’ll help.

    As of 2011, Detroit had one city employee for every 55 residents — by far the highest ratio in the United States. Public services remained bloated, and the bureaucracy remained clogged with useless union workers who cannot not be fired.

    Obama is giving these idiot millions of our dollars — money that won’t end up where it’s supposed to.

    Detroit has a very large, very poor, uneducated, unskilled black population. There is no tax base, no infrastructure, no schools, nothing. No reason to start a business there.

    This is how it ends after 50 years of democrat led social and economic destruction — with bulldozers, obmaphones and food stamps.

    $300 million down the drain.

    There is no hope for Detroit.

    • Katherine McChesney

      “blight’??? They are truly a disease.

  • Dave4088

    And just where does the head mulatto in charge derive the authority to shower black Detroit with 300 million of OUR tax dollars?

  • Here’s something else they’re not considering.

    $300 million seems like a lot to you and me, but it’s relative chump change for Detroit.

    Consider: Detroit’s total municipal debt is $18 billion. The rates in the municipal bond market for the first half of 2013 were consistently in the 2-2.25 range, but as of late, precisely because of Detroit and other cities declaring bankruptcy, this has scared that market and now muni bond rates are now about the same as bond rates for bonds issued by larger corporations. But let’s be generous and assume that Detroit’s outstanding debt was financed at the most generous rate for borrowers that the market yielded in ’13, that being 2%.

    18 billion times 2 percent is $360 million a year. This means that this money will at best take care of 10 months of debt service, less if the rates are higher.

    • I’m always happy when I see someone else do the math.

    • Gotsumpnferya

        In Georgia, near Columbus, there is a clay that locals eat. Don’t know if these are blacks who live on clay but I find the idea to be disgusting though I heard that it’s nutritious.

        • WASP

          Katherine, Black women eat this type of clay in Mississippi, and I’ve heard of Blacks eating it in southwest, Alabama too. Apparently, it has something their body needs; but I don’t know where such a practice started, perhaps from their African ancestry. I live in Alabama. I’ve never heard of any Whites who ingest it, although with some Whites now breeding with Blacks and aping them, could be; but I’ve never heard of it. I agree with you, it is disgusting!

    When America’s bills come due, after the dollar has lost reserve currency status so printing more dollars doesn’t work, when foreigners no longer loan the US government money, who is going to send us money to bail us out?

    This country is sinking, largely because of the effects of the welfare state which has wasted so many resources, eroded our souls and attracted worthless immigrants. And all we can do when Detroit sinks into the chaos inevitable for many of our cities is to give them more of what we don’t have.

    We are enslaving our grandchildren for the benefit of the colored races. What the hell is wrong with us and how do we stop it?

    Unfortunately, the only growth this foreign aid has engendered is the enormous increase in the black birth rate.

      Amazingly, increased black births nationwide in spite of an elective abortion rate, [according to the Guttmacher Institute], at 41 per 1,000 women among the

      The national average abortion rate is 18 per
      1,000 women among 15-19-year-olds.

  • Muni bonds historically have lower market yields than corporate bonds for two reasons: 1. Cities can tax money from people at gunpoint, 2. Interest income from munis are tax free for the bond holder.

    It might seem insane to you to lend to Dirt-Rot at 2%, but I suppose the bond market presumes that Detoilet would get a state or Federal bailout if worse came to worst. Don’t think the Feds wouldn’t bail out Detroitbabwe? Goldman Sachs owns Obama.

    • Bobbala

      Of course that assumes that you have people, let alone tax paying people to point a gun at …

    • There has been enough discussion about how bondholders of Detroit bonds should get a haircut to create worry in this area. I’d imagine that a lot of muni’s are held by funds which may move slowly, but going forward from here I’d expect rates for all muni’s, particularly Detroit, to be higher. Also there are various types of debt: there are some bonds which are secured against [supposedly] city assets.

    Detroit does not deserve to be saved. Let it fail make it an urban prairie. Export the people to California and other leftist states, so they can revel in socialist hell-holes. Sanitize the remains and then re-open the city with decent, hard-working people. Fresh start will really help.

    • Detroit has already been “saved”. The people remaining there, now that the whites have left have successfully turned it into Africa. It’s “diverse”, it’s “vibrant”, and its Fourth World characteristics are features, not bugs.

      In order to change Detroit, one would first have to remove the same people who turned Stanleyviile into Kisangani and Leopoldville into Kinshasa.

        Too bad old George Romney is dead. Had he lived another decade or so, he could have seen the end result of his triumphant civil rights policies in Michigan. He was the one who insisted on blacks being represented proportionally in Detroit. He pushed it hard. Unfortunately, he and soul-mate Hubert Humphrey had the bad taste of dying before displaced whites could revile them for their stupid perfidy.

    Even if the US would split into a white nation & a black nation, the pattern would repeat again. Blacks living in the white nation would multiply and demand more & more stuff.

    • WASP

      Perchance there could be a White nation, it must be for Whites only. Blacks, other non-Whites, cannot be allowed to live with us. Same goes for treasonous Whites who hate their own kind; let them go to the devil.

  • Actually with the tickets out of the country for the former inhabitants, you wouldn’t even need to spend on Bulldozers. People would buy the properties and demolish or repair as they saw fit.

  • Ella

    Politicians believe that “I look soooo good” with my best intentions to help Detroiters, so vote for us! Again, does anyone want to take in their Black mess much like Katrina? I think Dallas, Augusta, and Baton Rouge still have higher crime and other problems.

  • Magician

    $300M will be spent to improve the safety of the possibly most dangerous city in this world, rather than to provide McDonald’s gift certificate for all Detroit residents

  • WASP

    “or else an intentional, vicious, treacherous, treasonous plan from the very beginning”
    Personally, this is what I believe has been planned for Whites.

  • Major

    Nothing can save this disaster and mess. Watch…that money will disappear down another black pols pocket or his relatives…

  • Katherine McChesney

    Every penny ‘thrown’ at blacks has been money down the toilet. They are incapable of ever improving their culture. They’ll never amount to anything. It’s hopeless for the black race in general.

  • SoCal88

    The funding will be in the form of a box of suppositories, appropriate for Detroit and it fearless leaders

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

    I’m sure they’re lining up the crack and strippers already. In other words, it’s business as usual in Detroit.

  • HJ11

    Want a safer, nicer Detroit? Simply move out all of the Black people and replace them with White people.

    The same thing works for the whole planet. So, we Whites have to start making more like ourselves. Get busy.

  • newscomments70

    We simply need to sterilze most people on welfare, whatever the race is.

  • I think the legal cutoff for usury is about 30%. There’s now way I would lend Detroit money at 15% when I could demand twice that.

  • evilsandmich

    federal resources that had been tied up will go to repairing buses and installing security cameras

    That’s getting at something: using technology to rule Detroit. Their only chance at some semblence of order is to take the humans that live their out of the equation when it comes to governance.

  • Epiminondas

    Bush would have done the same. He would have sternly declared that Detwat would have to manage its own problems…then at the last moment he would have thrown them a lifeline in the interest of “a kinder, gentler America.” Pffft!

  • The poor thing would ray gun the place into a smoking crater from orbit and be assigned to “personality replacement” after returning home.
