Detroit Voters Elect Duggan Mayor of Broke City

NPR, November 5, 2013

A former medical center chief defeated a county sheriff to become the next mayor of financially troubled Detroit, though the job holds little power while the city is being run by a state-appointed emergency manager.

Unofficial returns showed Mike Duggan defeating Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon 55 percent to 45 percent. Napoleon conceded defeat late Tuesday in a race where Duggan outspent him by about 3-to-1 heading into Tuesday’s election.


Duggan, an ex-county prosecutor and former chief of the Detroit Medical Center, had said he wanted to convince Orr’s boss, Gov. Rick Snyder, to allow him to develop a team and a plan to resuscitate the city’s fiscal condition if elected mayor.

Both Duggan and Napoleon campaigned on fixing Detroit’s deteriorating neighborhoods and reducing the high crime rate in a city that struggles to respond to 911 calls on time. {snip}

But anything the new mayor wants done that requires money must first get Orr’s approval.


Duggan becomes Detroit’s first white mayor since the early 1970s. The city is more than 80 percent black.

    So they elect a white man just in time to be able to blame him as the city crashes and burns. I don’t see why any white would want to have their hand on the wheel, why not let them have it, they wanted it so much. Then there could be no doubt to anyone who wrecked it.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Running for mayor of Detroit is like applying to be the captain of the Titanic immediatelly after it made contact with the iceberg.

    • Blame it on the white man ….. exactly.

    • sbuffalonative

      The only way he can succeed is by making tough choices blacks won’t like. If they work and he turns things around, blacks will play the victims-of-racism card.

      Just another ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t, lose-lose’ situation when dealing with blacks.

    • Terra Magnum Imperium

      Agreed, whether the hands on the wheel or the whip, without whites, who would we blame for the worlds woes ?

    • dd121

      The pilfering of the city coffers has been going on so long by blacks, it’s hard to see that the current guy, white or not, could have a whole lot of the blame draped on him.

  • D.B. Cooper

    He basically won because there was more than one black candidate. This will be an interesting story to watch. Duggan will have to appoint people who really know what they’re doing, which means virtually no blacks.

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

      Maybe, but I can envision a mass of lawsuits for discrimination. That will destroy whatever good might have come from a white city leadership.

      • NordicHeritage

        It’s time to repatriate these blacks back to their motherland.

        • Spartacus

          You mean flush them down the toilet ?

    • 48224

      He will likely appoint all or nearly all blacks to key positions. Because if blacks get the feeling they are losing their grip on Detroit….the’re will be trouble in the forms of riots, burning buildings and the libration of I phones from electronics stores. You know, the usual.

      • NothingMan00

        That’s just another day in Detroit.

    • MikeofAges

      Or, if he can find blacks who know what they are doing, they will be those who are not representatives of the usual organized interest groups. Either way, he gets a firestorm.

    • MikeofAges

      Mike Duggan got 46 percent in the primary, Benny Napoleon 30 percent, in a field of 15 candidates.

    • Sensitivity Training

      This is what all our houses will look like one day unless we have a FedGov job or feed at the crony trough.

    • Alexandra1973

      That is depressing.

      Just think…probably 50-60 years ago that house likely had a nice, decent White family living in it.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Google “The Ruins of Detroit” for more eye-opening destruction courtesy of the black race.

    • evilsandmich

      Running it like a colony (where outsiders hold all the positions in government) is about the only solution to the woes that blacks subject themselves day-to-day, but I doubt that there’s evidence that they’d want that!

      • Blacks are so pumped-up with artificially-hyped “self-esteem” that they will never be able to admit their own incompetence.

  • Whoop.

    It’s like getting the HVAC contract to air condition the absolute pit of hell.

    This Duggan clod has give just about all of black Detroit a convenient excuse for them to blame all their problems upon.

    • Pelagian

      “It’s like getting the HVAC contract to air condition the absolute pit of hell.”

      lol, just lol

  • Garrett Brown

    I can’t believe Cuccinelli lost by one percent in my home state of virginia. This is why I hate democracy in its current state. Literally half of the population strongly believes in one thing while the other half strongly of the opposite. How can you avoid conflict in that situation? Mcauliffe will be an absolute disaster.

    • Actually, with all the wind to his face, what I can’t believe is how he even got so close to winning. These things worked to his disadvantage:

      1. The three northern Virginia counties of Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William are full of non-whites, immigrants and Federal workers, and are increasingly dominating the politics of the state, like Cook County does Illinois. Those counties being heavily blue are a given.

      2. The RINO establishment declared war on him practically from the moment he announced that he was running for Governor.

      3. The potemkin fake “libertarian” financed by a left wing Obama/Clinton bundler from Austin, Texas.

      4. Money. About a 15:1 advantage for McAuliffe.

      And even with all that, KC still finished within 2.5 points, and McAuliffe only got 48%.

      However, there was some good news from the state. The drop in replacement for KC for state AG won, albeit barely. And that black preacher clown act running for Lieutenant Governor as a Republican lost. And Republicans won 67 of 100 seats in the state House of Delegates, so even if there are some RINOs in the litter, McAuliffe is getting none of his agenda.

      • Garrett Brown

        Yah, he caught up substantially in the last week because he was fighting the health care bill so adamantly. I wasn’t crazy about the guy but it’d always morally superior to support a conservative over a progressive, especially one as insane as mcauliffe. He makes Obama look like a dreaming saint.

      • Romulus

        I followed virginia very closely as i have ties to the state.
        Excellent assessment. The REAL southerners give the counties you mentioned the moniker ” The occupied territory”.
        Demographic shift is directly correlated to political divisions in Va. The more diverse it becomes the more the WN’s will lose. It is already being called a purple state.
        Cabelas is putting a giant store just north of bristol. It will create jobs! They will say. It will also draw blue trash from the north right down the I-81 corridor.
        We’ve discussed this in great length before as this trend is occurring all over rural america.

      • dd121

        You’re right on all counts. The Republican leadership has thrown in with illegal immigrants and thrown the Tea Party under the bus. I think they’ll find that to be a fatal mistake to their long-term political ambitions. I know I’m not going to vote for them.

    • sbuffalonative

      The victory, like all recent elections, was slim. There is no mandate; only two nearly equally divided people fighting for people on the left and right fence. I don’t see how we can go on much longer being so equally divided.

    • Blue-eyed Devil

      The more diverse states get, the bluer they get. I still can’t believe an Indian (Bobby Jindal) was elected in Lousiana of all places. It’s mind-boggling.

      • Jefferson

        That is because Bobby Jindal campaigned for governor as a conservative who does not hate Whites and does not want special treatment for Nonwhites.

        That is why the majority of White voters in deep red Louisiana elected him into office.

        Bobby Jindal ran as a politician who is Brown on the outside but White on the inside.

  • Anglokraut

    If there is any bright side to being mayor of Detroit, it’s being able to trot out that Obama quote about the people who caused the mess to sit down and shut up.

  • willbest

    I don’t get it, shouldn’t they have spent money to avoid being mayor?

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    This is the same thing they did in Gary, Indiana a couple of decades ago–elected white attorney Scott King as mayor. However, King didn’t finish out his second term, saying the job of mayor didn’t pay enough to support his accustomed lifestyle. He has been followed by a succession of equally mediocre black mayors since then.

    • shmo123

      I took a detour off the toll road a couple of years ago, and drove through Gary just for the hell of it. What a shame. All those beautiful art-deco buildings, that you can tell were just beautiful and grand in their day, in ruin.

      • Svigor

        Gary’s another blacktopia, like Detroit, Memphis, and Birmingham. 85% black, 18th highest murder rate of any city in the country.

  • Pelagian

    I don’t think the pertinent comment here is “he’s being set up”. I think it’s time to shout and chortle: “there’s a white mayor of detroit!!” “there’s a white mayor of detroit!!” “there’s a white mayor of detroit!!”. After 60 years of it being “all about race” it finally is all about race, but not in the way they expected. We already have a white mayor of St. Louis after two successive black failures. He’s been reelected three times. Now all we need is a white mayor of EAST St. Louis. If this trend continues, it will look just like 18 century colonialism in Africa. White rulers, black ruled.

    • I’m hardly a Francis Slay fan. And I’m saying that as someone whom Slay can identify by name just by seeing me.

      But he’s just marginally more competent than the likes of Slaveman Bosley enough to make me content that he’s mayor.

      Slaveman only one the one term he won because of voter fraud.

  • Marc Zuckurburg

    Comprehensive immigration reform will revitalize Detroit, make it better, more prosperous, vibrant, secure, diverse.

    Modernize Detroit’s population, now!

  • Luca

    Wonder how successful he can possibly be. Once he starts firing all the lazy, incompetent, criminal, ignorant, affirmative action, city managers he’ll only be left with lawsuits and court orders to rehire the very vermin who created the cesspool in the first place.

  • People talk about Duggan’s business experience. Well, Detroit’s current and outgoing mayor, Dave Bing, came to the mayor’s office from the business world. How did that work out? Of course, Bing’s failure wasn’t Bing’s fault, nor will Duggan’s failure be Duggan’s fault. There’s only so much you can do with an 82% black city, whose educational credentials are such that 97% of the city’s residents hold kindergarten degrees.

  • Dave4088

    Duggan can’t revitalize Detroit with an unskilled, unproductive, uneducated, tax consuming black population predisposed to violence. It just ain’t gonna happen. But if by some miracle (big miracle) he does fix Detroit then the blacks will go back to their old tricks of demanding a bigger share of the pie, then elect a racist black mayor to do just that, then Detroit will collapse into its own rotten footprint yet again.

    White people like Duggan just never seem to learn from history or current events.

    • Sensitivity Training

      He’ll leave office early.

      In his final speech, he’ll say, “Before I was elected your mayor, I wasn’t a racist.”

  • Spartacus

    Still not gonna help. Unless he gets rid of all the groids, Detroit’s still gonna look like Fallout.

    • Fallout? Loved those games.

      • Spartacus

        I only liked the first two, and Tactics to some extent. The new FPS ones are just not the same thing…

        • I thought they made a mistake when they made F-3 a first-person shooter. I had hoped they would use the Neverwinter Nights software engine. My daughter loves Tactics.

          Sadly, nobody asks my advice about game or movie production.

          If the groids are the super-duper ubermen the way that Hollywood likes to pretend, why isn’t Detroit a software-engineering powerhouse? The winters there would still suck, but the Gnome Sayin’s could be making a living. Aunt Jemima could do this with her nephew Anfernee when he gets out of prison.

          Blacks are pretty good at wrecking places like Detroit, so I think they could do a fine job producing a hideous alternate future for a Fallout-type game. N’DeShawntavious and LaSqueesha could stay home that way.

          • Spartacus

            If your girl likes Tactics, then you should introduce her to 4X games, if you haven’t already. I loved Civilization and MoO2 when I was her age.

            And I think aunt Jemima has other things to worry about when her nephew’s around…

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble


            Here’s more of the article and another one about a black killer who confessed for a bucket of chicken — well, who wouldn’t??

          • We have MoO3. Ariadne likes to play as the Ithkul. She’s half me, so what do you expect?

            As for the above article, nobody could make this stuff up. My memories of my own grandmother center on oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies. She made some outstanding cookies. Also grits with cheese and crumbled bacon and pepper. There’s got to be a toasty place in Hell for someone who would hurt his own grandmother.

            The guy’s 20 and couldn’t find a girlfriend! I’m guessing here, but this might be (1) because he’s as stupid as an orc, (2) because he has the manners of an orc, (3) because he smells like an orc, or (4) because he’s an orc. For the benefit of any orcs reading this, I apologize in advance, as no orc is as morally filthy as someone who would try to rape grandma.

          • Spartacus

            MoO2 is where it’s “at”, as orcs would say .

          • Svigor

            If we only we could have “weaponized” blacks during the Cold War. Meaning, find a way to move them all into the USSR…

      • Jack Burton

        Wasteland 2 just came out.

  • Puggg

    Detroit has a white mayor, America has a black president.

    That’s about as unlikely a circumstance as St. Louis the city having a white mayor and St. Louis the county having a black county executive.

    Oh wait…

  • borogirl54

    I guess they figure that the white man is going to have to be the one to save them from themselves.

  • Defiant White

    I’m surprised anyone would want to be mayor. I didn’t think there was anything left to steal.

  • Luca

    Is he going to run the city single-handed? He probably will need to fire every incompetent, affirmative action, over-paid, corrupt city manager and bring in new people. Then he’ll be bogged down with lawsuits from the ACLU, DOJ and SPLC. Very little will get done. One more White man trying to save black people which winds up being an exercise in futility

  • John R

    80% black city? Huh? Whose counting? Well, they did say “over 80%” so I guess that 99% IS more than 80%, so TECHNICALLY they are right.

  • Paul

    I rarely get surprised these days but this is surprising. What it tells us is that even the blacks are waking up to the massive lies and failures of liberalism. But not the whites, they’re still whistling while they’re being wiped out.

  • John R

    I heard that on the news: A White guy, married to a black woman. Has mixed children. Was an activist in his youth; and even traveled to Nicaragua to support the Communist government, there. This is what the LIBERAL MEDIA said about the guy! Geeze; he must be a REAL far out leftist, then. He also opposes the police “stop and frisk” policy. OK. Now, next quest: How long before NYC’s murder rate climbs to astronomically high levels again?

    • Mike Lau

      A White guy, married to a black woman. Has mixed children.

      They must be a black hating, white adulating family then eh?

      After all are not white women who are married to black guys and have mixed race children, white hating, black adulating hos?

      Then it must work in reverse too – right?

      • M.

        Probably, yeah. But it’s the white race-traitors we’re concerned about.

      • John R

        How long have you been posting on this website? Either you are saying these things tongue in cheek, or we will have to educate you. First, Whites integrate with blacks because they oppose traditional White social values. Blacks integrate with Whites for largely the same reason-to “stick it to the man” The good blacks-and there are some-stay in committed relationships with their own kind. You have a lot to learn, I see. Me and my fellow posters have our work cut out for us, but hopefully we can educate you.

      • Garrett Brown

        How many black male/ white female couples can you list that are married? Surely not many.

        NYC was a desolate and degenerate place in the mid-1970’s. The city was surviving on emergency loans to maintain solvency. Block-after block of burned out buildings were visible from Cross Bronx Expressway.

        • Blue-eyed Devil

          I know. I’m originally from northern New Jersey and I was a kid in the mid-1970’s. Times Square wasn’t safe back then, that’s for sure.

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

      It does illustrate that “white” as a descriptor, does have its limitations. But I think that the stereotypes of racial interpretations will get a good ride out of this, nonetheless. It might prove a good test of how far skin can make a difference. He hasn’t had his skin stop him yet, but now that he is defined as the “first white since” he is being forced into a stereotype that might have interesting affects as his tenure develops.

  • Sick of it

    If they want to reduce crime in a gang-ridden city like Detroit, they will have to sent SWAT teams out to take out all gang members in the city. No more questions. No more silly procedures.

    • Jackryanvb

      Isn’t that what they do in Brazilian cities like Rio?

    • shmo123

      I don’t get how Detroit can be so crime ridden. If it’s so poor and nearly all black, who the hell is left for the black gangs and thugs to steal from?

      • Svigor

        1. Whites steal from other whites (taxation)
        2. The former whites give the money they stole from the latter to blacks, who buy stuff.
        3. Other blacks steal the stuff the blacks bought with the money given to them by whites who stole it from other whites.

      • Sick of it

        A friend of mine visited once and she was warned not to go out at night or she might be kidnapped and basically pushed into sexual slavery by one of the gangs (for life!). She never went back. So they pretty much take whatever you have, even if it means taking you.

  • Sensitivity Training

    This is bad for us.

    When Detroit descends into permanent third world voodoo Diversity cesspool status, they will blame the Whitey mayor.

    You are Whitey, and your White privilege will be finally taxed, regulated, and tortured out of existence.

      What street is that on, do you know?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Heartbreaking, isn’t it?

        I’ve seen unbelievable before and after photos of beautiful parks, schools, grand hotels, theaters and once-fabulous homes in Detroit, Gary, Indiana and my hometown of Los Angeles.

        After the election of DeBlasio (or whatever name he’s going by now) in New York, I expect we’ll see a “Ruins of New York” in a year or two — to join the other great cities that have been savaged by non-White barbarians.

        Someone on another forum who saw that photo said it looks like Alfred between Woodward and Brush, where the Lumber Barons lived before the Auto industry took off.

        Hope that helps.

            Thanks for the nice words.

            I’ve been busy exchanging Thanksgiving recipes with some Southerners, explaining how my family uses the “black olive test” on Thanksgiving guests and listening to Led Zeppelin II, Side B.

            One of the Southerners is supposed to tell me how to make a “coke salad” today.

            As for Southern cooking: NO to sweet potatoes with marshmallows and candied pecans, YES to the Bourbon (although I prefer a single male Scotch Whisky) and MAYBE to the coke salad — although they told me it contains celery and that makes it a NO.

    if he fails and black people blame him for Detroit failure it will just show how hypocritical black people really are, especially on race
    Do you think that the MSM will frame it that way, rather than evil White man wrecks a Detroit that was finally on the mend ? No doubt blacks will blame him, but so will TPTB. Blacks can never ever be held to account for anything.

  • IstvanIN

    Even if every black left Detroit it will never be what it was because the fundamental changes needed to make America economically strong will never be implemented. We need an end to all immigration, deportation of illegals, increased tariffs to encourage manufacturing here, official English to end the costs associated with the tower of Babel, a radically smaller federal government, increased states rights, an end to affirmative action and an end to “fair employment” among private employers, and an increased reliance on home grown energy like natural gas and coal (although natural gas and oil production do seem to be on the increase).

    • NoMosqueHere

      That’s a very sound platform. But immigration reform (ending all third world immigration while increasing white immigration to the US) is job one. And it’s doable, if we are willing to pay the price (non violent mass protests).

    • Note that there are problems with home grown natural gas & coal, although there are other solutions to our energy problem which involve eventually eliminating our consumption of imported oil.

      All the other points you mention seem really good but I guess the US Gov’t will continue to do directly the opposite for some strange reason.

    Detroit might have a case of South Africa Syndrome. There was a poll done recently in SA, and one of the things that was learned from this poll was that many Blacks South Africans yearned for stability and security of Apartheid SA.

      “Oppression” (or whatever you want to call it) has always been the only way to get the “best” (least bad) results from blacks in terms of reining in their crime and malfeasance.

    Big Money is buying up huge chunks of valuable land and infrastructure in Detroit. They need a white businessman, like Duggan, to oversee the transfer of assets. The black people, on the other hand, have completed their 50-year job of lowering property values, and will be relocated to ruin some other place. That’s how it works.

    Liberals always do this. They do something conservative, or elect conservatives to do something conservative, because they’re driven to desperation by their stupid liberalism. Then the conservative policies work, and things get better. Then enough time passes that they can’t remember how things were when their liberalism achieved its inevitable ends, and they feel guilty about their awful conservative policies, and turn to liberalism again. And the cycle begins anew.

    This will always happen as long as liberals control the culture and the organs of history- and opinon-making.

    I want only to escape the liberals. I have no interest at all in saving or correcting them. Quite the contrary.

      YT can;t win, regardless.

    It wouldn’t matter if Donald Duck was the mayor of that toilet. Obama is going to provide them with a federal bailout courtesy of us White taxpayers.
