For first time, Detroit's black population falls
NATIVE OF DETROIT.
This is the result of local politics, which
is a result of state politics, which is the
result of federal politics of which has it's
head stuck so far up corporate Americas
butt, that it is otherwise difficult to determine
which 'end' is truly speaking.
Reagan began the concept, (or validated the implementation of said,)
w/ his 'Reaganomics,' trickle-down theory and de-regulation.
The back-handed results YOU see of the sufferings of the
Black Community, are symptomatic of said predatory
governmental policies, practice and international pursuit.
NO NATION IS ANY STRONGER THAN IT'S LEADERS.
And if it's leaders practice selective justice as routine
of any appeasement, it's people suffer. Murder is once
again 'wholesale' within the city of Detroit and OUR People
STILL think it's THEIR FAULT. I wish OUR People would
truly pull their heads up out of the sands of the ostrich-
syndrome from which WE suffer, and see who's TRULY responsible
for the civil unrest taking place in OUR Community.
I feel that...
Although I am not from DETROIT, I understand you. Black people are too intimidated to speak out on injustices doled to them; out of sheer fear of being called a whining 'victim'. We shout a lot, yet have been silenced far too long. I will self critique any and all day, but he good lord blessed me with 10 fingers; which I will use to point right back at the "problem", or clinch them and judge spicy style.
Well said roarin1!
