Thousands to March in Detroit for Racial, Economic Justice

Niraj Warikoo, Detroit Free Press, March 28, 2015

Thousands are expected to march Saturday demanding racial justice in Detroit in a rally organized by more than 100 local churches.

Called the March for Justice, the walk is part of a broader effort to highlight what organizers say is the growing marginalization of African Americans in Detroit. While the city’s residential population is 84% African-American, the community is being ignored in recent development efforts, said members of the planned march.

“With the gentrification of Detroit . . . African Americans do feel shut out,” said Tracey Sanders, an organizer who’s a member of of New St. Mark Church in Detroit. “We just want to have a seat at the table.”

The march and later actions planned–such as voter registration–are to help “eliminate racially-motivated injustice and promote economic parity,” Sanders said. About 3,000 to 5,000 are expected to take part in the march, said organizers.

The Rev. Louis Forsythe II, pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Detroit, plans to attend the march.

“We want to be able to speak truth to power,” Forsythe said.

    The deterioration of Detroit belongs to the actions of negroes and liberals.

    I just don’t care…..they OWN that craphole. Deal with it!

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Unfortunately it’s not that simple. We productive YTs are now mandated to bail them out. TBTF and negro welfare go hand in hand. Why whites don’t get this is mystifying to me.

        “Why whites don’t get this is mystifying to me.”

        Give me your tired, your poor,
        Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
        The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
        Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:

        And they did.

        Correct. They don’t deal with sh*t! One way or another we will pay for it.

  • Bunky

    90+ percent minority and that’s gentrification?

    • TruthBeTold

      If you think about it what they’re really protesting is Whites making Detroit better.

      • Irish

        Same as Spike Lee protesting the gentrification of Harlem.

    • ElComadreja

      Any white moving into Detoilet is insane.

  • AmericanCitizen

    If I understand this, blacks are protesting against clean streets, new businesses, remodeled homes, economic opportunity and job creation.

    Sounds about right for a class of parasites.

    • APaige

      Blacks could easily work for racial and economic justice by cleaning up neglected lots, fixing up houses, cleaning parks, opening up businesses, etc. Ha, it must be easier to organize a march against those willing to do the hard work.

      • Dave West

        Accomplishing those things would require rolling out of bed before 1 pm.

        • Whitetrashgang

          See, now your pushing it.

      “We just want to have a seat at the table.”

      lol.

      • InAFreeCountry

        Maybe they can get a seat at the back of the bus. The way they’ve run Detroit into the ground, they don’t deserve a seat at the adult table.

      • carriewhite64

        A seat at the table implies that one has paid for the meal.

    • Michael Robert Ryan

      LOFL, my friend. Truer words were never spoken.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    When people say they want a “place at the table” it would be better if they made it clear just what that means. The same for people who ask for “respect”. I had always thought in (both cases) it was something you earned, not something given to you just because you showed up.

    • listenupbub

      Excellent point. Make them outline their demands exactly in real world terms, and their envy, entitlement, and greed will become apparent.

    • Speedy Steve

      Their table manners will scare the stuffing out of you.

      • Spikeygrrl

        The [Chimps] they lick their fingers

        They spill their broth on the tablecloth
        Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
        The [Chimps] they talk while eating
        And loud and fast they chew.
        And that is why I’m glad that I

    • TruthBeTold

      ‘A place at the table’. Typical black-speak for ‘give us the money’.

    • There’s no “table” here. My instructions to them are “Supply your own food and eat it in your own homes.”

    If black people in Detroit lived inside one giant pile of trash that smelled like feces, they wouldn’t cared so long as it was ruled by blacks.

    They only make a scene once liberal whites begin building up areas of civilization and when arab and hispanic immigrants, with limited English skills, are able to find relative success when they can’t.

    • They already do live inside one giant pile of trash that smells like feces.

      • ElComadreja

    They’ve had plenty of seats at the table…

    …and the table broke.

    • Chip Carver

      That’s because they keep stealing the seats and even the table legs.

      • Alexandra1973

        Or setting them on fire.

    • HE2

      No, Mekong, they stole the table, traded it for a rock.

  • IstvanIN

    Just once I would like a well-known figure to say “why don’t you guys ever gentrify anything themselves?”

    • DiversityIsDeath

      “Negro gentrification”? The notion is absurd because blacks are destroyers who never improved anything. It is universally understood that “gentrification” means “White”. It’s part of the coded left wing lexicon. As “White” is evil, so “gentrification” must necessarily be evil too.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Negro + gentrification = oxymoron

      • Christopher Perrien

        Nah, it equals Battle of Rorke’s Drift.

        • Spikeygrrl

          I can’t help but sympathize — just a little bit — with Whites like you who are just itching for blood in the streets on a grand scale.

          But consider the comparative advantages. Negroes, like beasts, outperform White Humans in brute physical force (just look at pro sports, by far the White culture’s most barbaric “pastime”). OTOH, Whites outthink and outplan Negroes by so many multiples it’s almost surreal that we’re technically the same species.

          If this whole integrationist thing breaks down (even more than it has already), we will prevail not by fighting harder hand-to-hand, but by fighting smarter. Wrecking balls and flamethrowers to the ghettos, anyone? Or, on a more technical tack, isn’t it about time we ran some more “tests” on those neutron bombs.

          • Christopher Perrien

            Nah , even with such occurrences as Rorke’s Drift, Africa remains Africa, and the British Empire is just as gone.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Nice way to give up, dude.

          • Christopher Perrien

            LOL, I know. If JC came back and asked me, I’d tell him the world ain’t saving.

  • Jason Lewis

    84% black and you want racial/economic justice? You own the vote and the city council. You keep wishing for a world without us. Here’s a sample.

    • Chip Carver

      Blacks (and most hispanics) are ‘magical’ thinkers. They think that anything Whites have or create is something that was conjured out of thin air. And our friends who own the media encourage this thinking, helping our cognitively challenged dependents think Whites are hoarding some kind of mystic supply of stores, restaurants, clean streets, you name it.

      • Jason Lewis

        Could you imagine if 60 Minutes or 20/20 did a true report on cities like Detroit and Cleveland to clue the rest of America in on whats in store for them?

        • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

          Cleveland is filled with joooos and knee grows

        • EuropeanIdentity33

          No real need for that, in most places just drive down the street or over a couple blocks and you’ll definitely see what’s in store.

        This negro woman where my aunt worked used to tell her grandchilluns to pray for the things they wanted, like new Air Jordans, while my aunt wondered why she didn’t tell the little negroid to get a part-time job or do extra chores. Of course, that would imply that she did her own job and that my aunt didn’t have to spend time correcting the f–k-ups of the black employees around her.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          Actually having a job and doing something productive is considered “chump-work”…

        • ElComadreja

          The only “race” that will kill for sneakers.

    • KevinPhillipsBong

      The logic is….whites dole out the goodies therefore without whites we’d get to dole them out ourselves.

    • EuropeanIdentity33

      Doesn’t matter if it’s 100% or 1% black, they will always point the finger and blame somebody else for their own failures. That’s the nature of the victim mentality.

      • Reverend Bacon

        True, but I blame whites for them having that victim mentality. If liberals hadn’t come along and said, “it’s YT’s fault you are less intelligent, or less wealthy, or less law-abiding, etc.” they wouldn’t have been able to sell it so well for so many decades. Had they instead said, “you aren’t like us; deal with it. If you want to go where you’ll be smarter than most of the rest, here’s a free trip to Liberia. If you want to try to compete, have at it, but if you are on welfare for more than 2 years, you need to get on the boat and go somewhere else. If you commit more than 2 felonies, you need to get on the boat. If you need welfare at all, you need to get sterilized or on birth control.

        Blacks, collectively, operate quite rationally. They learned a bunch from the liberals, but they play their hand well. The whole “hands up don’t shoot” hoax, for example, just tilts the odds in favor of the black criminal for both getting away with murdering cops, and with playing the lottery if they fail. It’s quite rational for them to spread this lie and others like it.

        • EuropeanIdentity33

          I disagree I think they are entirely irrational, while “hands up don’t shoot” certainly helps the criminals, it ultimately hurts the entire community. If the police can’t get criminals off the street and into a location where they won’t hurt or rob anybody than it’s everyone who pays. Especially majority black areas since due to high crime rates and lack of law enforcement most business won’t want to move there. If most blacks had simple foresight they would be able to see the detrimental effects letting criminals off the hook would have.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Negroes don’t do “ultimately.” Like house pets and very young children, they live in the Eternal Now.

          • John Smith

            Thinking in the future requires intellect and abstraction abilities.

          • Albert

            I agree. Logic, reason and rational thought and behavior are quite beyond them. With or without liberal thought to influence them, they are very irrational in their thoughts and beliefs.

          • Earl P. Holt III

    • Luca

      Imagine, if you can, a town that is 84% White and the Whites are complaining that they feel left out and want racial, social and economic justice.

      Only blacks can do the insane and make themselves seem like victims while the liberal media drools over such nonsense and calls it news.

    Black preachers are the big chiefs in Bell Curve City. The way I figure, black preachers in Dirt-Rot must not think they’re getting theirs or their close relatives are getting theirs. So it’s time to fire up the flocks.

    “We want to be able to speak truth to power,” Forsythe said.

    Uh, Forsythe? You ARE the power.

    Besides, speaking truth to power is stupid, and it’s a dead end. Power doesn’t care about the truth you speak to it, especially when power has the ability to create its own truth. Or in the case of Dirt-Rot, power doesn’t need to create its own truth, all it needs to do is present financial statements.

    • Alexandra1973

      I better warn my mom to keep her doors locked, her car secure, and her shotgun ready. She only lives a few blocks north of Eight Mile (dividing line between Detroit and the northern suburbs for those unfamiliar with the area).

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Ha, Forsythe has the shameless gaul to hide behind the ole “speaking truth to power” chestnut? As if he’s some sort of afro-hero sticking his noble black neck out for his peeps? Pffft, as if these negroes are taking any risks at all by speaking troof to power? Too funny. Negroes know damn well they can say whatever they want to whomever they want, risk free. Otherwise they wouldn’t dare do it. Forsythe is pretending he’s bravely going out on a limb and risking being lynched by angry white folks as if he raped a white woman in 1950s Mississippi. What a fraud! Speaking truth to power is when a righteous White man speaks out publicly against ZOG.

      • bv

        What the hell is “ZOG”?

          “Zionist-Occupied Government.” A term beloved of conspiracy theorists out on the furthest lunatic fringe of anti-Semitism.

    Does gentrification consist of a fortified hamlet of hipsters somewhere on the city’s outskirts? I thought the plan for Motown was to repopulate it with Mexicans.

    • Gina Tingles

      It’s the downtown / midtown / Woodward corridor that’s being gentrified. Just google where the Starbucks are located. The “mexicans” have Mexicantown on the southwest side, and it’s not that bad for Detroit. You can actually go out to dinner there at night. The “hipsters on the city’s outskirts” are in Ferndale.

        • Irish

          Much of Detroit looks like Dresden circa 1945. Hard to imagine now but it was once the 5th largest U.S. city..It’s now simply example numero uno for what happens to a city when White folk flee, and Blacks totally dominate a city’s government..

  • LHathaway

    A city that is 84% African American, and hasn’t had a white mayor in decades, possibly generation, promises to commit to racial justice and to promoting diversity, by which they mean doing anything that employs, promotes, advantages, or increases the number of those of color in the city, in this case the Black population. She warns of the dangers of ‘gentrification’. When they mean respecting or encouraging diversity, they mean non-whites. This is how it works and only how it works. Even in an area that is 84% African American by itself and has been for decades.

    • bv

      I don’t think you get it, do you? Protesting against whites for whatever reason is their M.O. and sole purpose. They want to guilt whites to pay them off one way or another. They’re looking for their payoff just like Al & Jesse.

    “We just want to have a seat at the table.”

    You did have a seat at the table, actually you ran the table for 40+ long years. During that time you managed to crap on the seat, set it on fire, and urinate on the ashes. Then you sold the table for $100 and a case of Colt 45’s.

  • Blacks worried about gentrification? Spend your damn money on something besides Colt .45, bling, dubs, whores, and crack you guys might have nice houses too. Those beautiful houses take work to make beautiful and work to keep beautiful

    Work? That four letter word you Negros are allergic to. I know you can handle four letter words. That one starting with f is certainly within your ability. So try the “w” word for a change.

  • Truthseeker

    If you’ve been running the city for 40 years and don’t even feel like you have a seat at the table, maybe the problem is you never bringing anything to the table.

    • Pa Guy in NJ

      LOL good one-thanks I needed that.

    • awb

      Imagine that.

  • Reverend Bacon

    “A place at the table” means that they forced whites out of “the Paris of the West,” starting in about 1955 or so, and turned it into a dump. When they got it, it was fine, just like Rhodesia and South Africa. So some whites are trying to make it less of a dump, which would in fact make the blacks’ property worth more. But they want it to be the Beirut of the West, because that’s their (very brief) history in Detroit.

    I do question the wisdom of the gentrifiers, since there’s always the threat of both official government theft of your property, as well as the Spike Lee sort of attack on your investment. I’d like to see it become all black, have no tax base, and stop getting handouts from the feds. Make everyone in Detroit move somewhere else where the parasites haven’t killed the host; or, gasp!, get a job.

The Mexican says he wants a safe and industrious Mexico where all Mexicans can live in harmony… the genie says, “done” and makes it so. 9

      A black guy finds a magic lamp and rubs it and a genie comes forth, offering him three wishes.
      First, the negro wishes to be white, blond and blue-eyed. So the genie grants him his wish.
      Second, the negro wishes to be filthy rich and the genie blinks and the former negro is surrounded by more money than he can count (I know, that isn’t that much, but go with it).
      For his last wish, the negro tells the genie that he never wants to work again – and the genie turns him back into a black man.

        How do you starve a trigger to death? Hide his EBT card under his work boots.

    Funny that I just posted how Whitey is to save the day for East Cleavland. Now Whitey is the unwelcome interloper in Detroit. Can’t they just cough up the bucks silently and let the Blacks continue to sink into their self-made chaos?

    The Mexicans may well cure the negroes’ false sense of pride.

    This article looks and sounds like something from the 1980’s — complete with stale phrases like “a seat at the table” and “speak truth to power” (whatever the f*ck that’s supposed to mean). Just look how they act when white folks move in and try to reclaim the city their ancestors built. They freak out. Also, how in hell can you feel “shut out” when the whole damn city is black? Haha! Oh, here’s another one. Remember when they wanted free water last summer and petitioned the United Nations. Hahaha. This is too funny.

    We jus’ wanna have a seat at the table, but we don’t wanna have to buy the food, buy the table, set the table, prepare the food, or cleanup afterward.

      And they’ll steal extras and the silverware to take home with them.

    This is just another black temper tantrum directed at White people. The non stop whining and complaining about White people is their favorite past time. And I would also like to say that if black people feel ‘shut out’, it’s a good thing, not a bad thing.

  • They only feel “shut out” of what we do ourselves. In federal prison, I planned out hot rod builds, and one of the older, OK blacks asked me whether I’d hire some young black guy across the room once I was out. I said “OK, bring him over here.”

    The lazy kid wouldn’t. I just had parts catalogs and books open, a cup of coffee, a cigar, and a notebook. Not too scary, but that’s too much like work for them.

    He was too lazy to walk across the room, which must have been all of 20 feet.

      My aunt and uncle used to live the next county over in an upper-middle class suburb and right after they bought their house, some negroes moved in to what was probably the nicest house in the neighborhood – a two-story red brick colonial. The male “worked” as some token executive with a large salary for being black and on the management team and the female stayed at home.

      Their son wanted to go to West Point, and because the father was connected and networked with upper-middle class liberals around the area, the kid got nominated as a token. Apparently the kid “volunteered” (probably his folks made him so he’d look good for admissions) to help a decrepit neighbor to put out their trash every week and put the cans away afterward. However, this big, strong football playing negro athlete couldn’t manage to walk two blocks down the street and two blocks back uphill and had his mother drive him.

      The epitaph to the story is the father eventually started his own publishing business and drove it into the ground within a matter of a few years. The female died from a heart attack (a big fried chicken and biscuit eating she-gro) about the same time and they lost the house, though the bank let them live there rent-free over a year. My aunt was delighted because they didn’t park their cars outside in the drive and they took this nasty looking old turquoise boat they left outside away.

    “eliminate racially-motivated injustice and promote economic parity,”…. I thought the polar bear game was racially – motivated injustice. And as for economic parity just wait til the little brown invaders suck up another few hundred billion in welfare and resources ….. What a show we are in for.

  • InAFreeCountry

    Detroit is the not-so-shining example of what happens when the blacks are left to their own devices, even with the white man cutting the welfare checks. They talk of “speaking truth to power.” We’ve been preaching the real truth, but not a one listens.

  • John Smith

    If no white (idiot) gentrification occurs, it will just be another failed black sh**hole and then they’ll be stuck in a hell of their own making, all alone – not that it’s likely anything much will come of this anyway. It’s precisely these congoids having “seats at the table” that got the city into the mess it’s in.

  • USN Veteran

    50+ years of getting exactly what they wanted. Whites moved out, incredible welfare benefits, outrageous salaries for high school drop outs at the car factories, outrageous
    union benefits for the UAW & city/state employees, and over 50 years of democratic mayors. Now that those polices have failed because they are unsustainable, they want to march for what exactly? They got what they wanted starting in the 60’s, & it killed their city.

  • Snazzy Snook

    Boo hoo hoo, we shall overcome … Phooey .

  • Blacks feel shut out of Detroit? Did I read that right? Yeah, ignoring blacks in Detroit, how did they manage that? So they feel shut out of gentrification efforts? Is there any end to their whining? Okay, enough questions. Blacks are part of the problem not the solution. They should be just happy that some non-blacks are stupid enough to move to their urban hell hole.

  • LiberalismFailed

    Someone on the original articles facebook comment section stated it perfectly (paraphrasing): “I didn’t pick the fruit; I didn’t mill the flour; I don’t know how to bake; but I want a piece of the pie.”

  • LiberalismFailed

    It’s time to roll out the red carpet so that the descendants of those that built Detroit and the whites that fled, can return to THEIR city and blacks can be damned and march all the way back to Selma if they don’t like it.

  • The All Seeing Bry

    “With the gentrification of Detroit . . . African Americans do feel shut out,” said Tracey Sanders, an organizer who’s a member of of New St. Mark Church in Detroit. “We just want to have a seat at the table.”

    I couldn’t help myself from bursting out laughing. They think they deserve a seat at the table, hahaaaha.

  • Cid Campeador

    Black folks should be tickled to death (figuratively speaking of course) that the city is being gentrified. Their internecine violence will be quelled because they will soon have a great victim pool from which to choose for beating, rape and murder. In a short time the gentry will begin to leave and good old Motown will again revert to a s–thole.
    Poor Nicole (the little blonde who refurbishes houses in Detroit) is wasting her time.

    BINGO!!!!!!

    “We just want to have a seat at the table.”

    Well, why don’t you go out and hustle and earn yourself a place at the table like every other race of people in this country has done? Oh, yeah, that’s right: because you are too lazy and stupid to do that. You’d rather march around and rabble rouse than do an honest day’s work.

    Their time would be better spent on taking steps to get jobs, such as, they could bother to get enough education to become employable, they could take steps to stop having children that they cant support, and on and on. I guess everyone already knew this, easier to blame someone else- business as usual for the negro.

  • Max

    So, here is the setup: Whites build great city Detroit, white liberals destroy industry and blacks supported my whites move in to finalize the destruction; whites begin rebuilding Detroit, blacks pissed off.

    Have I missed something?

  • Max

    What might be the media and political result if “white leaders” let’s call them, in a 90% white area publicly protested the “negrification” when a few more blacks started moving into that city?

    I don’t think that the response would be favorable but of course, that’s different.
