    DETROIT (Reuters) - When the state-imposed manager of Detroit,Kevyn Orr, starts the job on Monday he will wade into a city of crumbling neighborhoods where police fail to respond to some calls, arson fires burn out of control and residents scour charred buildings for scrap metal to sell.
    Except for the business district and a cultural area including a university, museum and some theaters, the city of Detroit, population 700,000, is in bad shape.

    Have you are heard of or read DETROIT: I DO MIND DYING (book)?

    I. e., even before one young (now discredited) black mayor became the poster child for some folks dissing of all black elected officials in Detroit, the reaction and overreaction by white movers/shakers/etc. in Michigan included covert or overt means/ways/etc. to undermine any concept of Black Power...

    It's hardly just our folks fault...

    A lot of it is those other folks...

    Just find out what the facts are...

    Then you can answer your own questions...

    FYI...

    Are you prepared to hear from somebody who did or do live in Detroit, i. e., what we feel and what we think too?

    Or have you already made up your mind??

    I choose to not just react, respond to what is another challenge, i. e., help present facts to dispute lies meant to justify taken power away from some of our black elected officials and from us too...

    FYI...

    Then what do you attribute to the decline of a city like Detroit?

    I do attribute it to envy and fear of white moves/shakers/etc. who saw or see it as a means to their end, and undermined our black officials past or present efforts to advance our own best interests...

    From white flight to the suburbs, to self serving grand dreams of the auto company planners, (who Obama bailed out as well) to Detroit as a mecca for rich big shot white gamblers, (since there was and is resistance to having legalized vice in their suburbs, under the banner of so called 'family values' aka the white Christian conservatives), our folk in the 'D' got or are getting played, while others were or are getting paid...

    I do expect you to do better than this!

    Lead by example...

    I always strive to...
