Angry Detroit Activists Complain City Isn’t Black Enough

Oh no! There are white people in Detroit! Someone do something quickly to stop the racist presence of white people! Only when Detroit is 100 percent black and one hundred percent bankrupt will… well no that won’t fix anything either.  (via Maggie’s farm)

The divide around here once was between Detroit and the suburbs. Now, in the words of race warrior Shirley Stancato, it’s becoming between “downtown and those other people.”

Whitey, go back to the burbs and stay out of Detroit!

“It’s an issue,” says Stancato, whose organization is dedicated to closing the racial divide. “It’s a symptom of concerns that are just underneath the surface.”

Is complaining about white people in a black city really closing the racial divide?

The resentment broke through during the recent Detroit mayoral campaign. The downtown vs. neighborhoods conflict became a sub-theme that both candidates had to address on the campaign trail.

How could it not? Downtown seems immune to Detroit’s broken finances. It’s booming thanks to private investments and its sudden emergence as a cool city for young people to live and work in.

Private dollars take care of everything from street clean-up to security within the downtown and Midtown zones.

It’s a different story in the neighborhoods, where the city’s inability to fund basic services is evident on nearly every block.

Those evil white people. They pay to pick up their own trash. They bring investment into Detroit. Someone get Eric Holder on the line.

Something else is bubbling, too. A lot of nights you can stand in downtown Detroit and think you were in Minneapolis instead of at the core of the blackest city in America.

With a few exceptions, the new hip hotspots have an overwhelmingly white clientele. Often, the downtown crowd is an almost exact reversal of the city’s 80 percent black, 20 percent white and others racial makeup.

And? Are there armed guards keeping black people out of downtown Detroit? Is a city run by black people really incapable of tolerating a white enclave?

I talked with several downtown denizens over the past few weeks, and all seem to have noticed the same thing, but they can’t say for sure why it’s happening. Most say diversity is one of the things that draws them to Detroit.

Diversity seems to be code for “No White People Allowed.”

Stancato says it’s not something we can shrug off. “The response has to be intentional,” she says. “Are we focused on this and are we willing to have a conversation about it?”

Sure.

Detroit is bankrupt. It can’t keep the streetlights on or pick up the trash. But by all means, let’s have a conversation about how the small number of remaining white people are upsetting black people by being too white.

New Detroit is working on programs to help white and black young people, particularly those living in Detroit, get comfortable with each other.

Interracial flash mobs anyone?

    How incredibly depressing. The Socialist thieves literally see someone being successful, and demand they hand it over. I can’t figure out why we are not in a civil war.

    • mindRider

      America is, but since it’s not yet a shooting war it’s not generally noticed.

    • So CAL Snowman

      We are in a civil war more or less, but only the hispanics and blacks are fighting in it against Whites. Most White people are too busy living and dying with their sports teams or tv show heroes to notice that their race is being attacked left and right by blacks and hispanics.

      • Guest

        White people know the fight is on. We are loosing v though. Have you seen whats in the white house. This man was elected by the minorities and white morons who considered voting for Obama was a sign of non racism. When the voted for the idiot again it just proved they were stupid.

      • ChiTwn

        Hey So CAL not sure where your getting your info about hispanics but I am Hispanic and love my country (U.S.A.) and would die for our country. If I saw anyone attacking you I would be the first one there supporting you. We were raised to assimilate, give back and be great full and honor those who made it possible for us to live here.

        100% right
        The race war is going on and whites are oblivious

  • lou hodges

    No, I gotta laugh here. Wasn’t it yesterday, that St. Louis announced that it was the new Detroit? I lived in St. Louis for 5 years, I thought living conditions for Blacks was terrible, but apparently it was the Blacks in leadership who were suppressing their own neighborhoods. People fled Detroit beginning with Mo-Town. I know someone pretty famous in Mo-Town, and she is not going back to Detroit anytime soon. In fact, NEVER, is what I thought she said. AND if that isn’t bad enough, I was living in Mesa AZ, when a whole bunch of people from Detroit moved in and bought up homes in Queen Creek, vowing NEVER TO GO BACK TO DETROIT. Whatever is going on in Detroit, the people who left ARE NOT COMING BACK EVER.

      Look at that fat cow Oprah, when she wants to go somewhere nice to shop for ten thousand dollar handbags she goes to lily White Switzerland and then complains about racism! You will never see that worthless piece of trash shopping for a ten thousand dollar hand bag in coal black Africa or Detroit!

      • Edward Przydzial

        TRUE! she went there to agitate anyway. switzerland is capitalist and clean… crime free. she went there to instigate when she saw how nice and ‘white’ it is… she’s a racist too. we know this people. fuck oprah and her ilk. an obamatron.

      • tagalog

        If she’d gone shopping for a $10,000 handbag in Detroit, she’d have been mugged before she got very far down the street toward the store.

  • gooms

    But you can bet your bottom dollar, every one of those white hipsters living in downtown Detroit are progressive liberal democrats who wouldn’t ever move into the “black zone”, would they? NOPE!

  • Jenny L

    White yuppies seeking out diversity in inner cities is very likely a passing fad. Let a few of them get murdered or experience the “knock out game” and we’ll see. I doubt Detroit or Gary, Indiana, et al, will ever return to what they were before the 1960s.

    • Edward Przydzial

      true.

  • ziggy zoggy

    Stupid White people. Always saving Black Americans from themselves. Just let them go extinct. Black Africans are able to get up and go to work. Let them be an example. And oh, yeah. Play the knockout game with the next groid you see.

  • tagalog

    Isn’t it interesting that blacks can make the most outrageous claims about black exclusivity and the exclusion of whites from this place or that place, and never have to worry about being called on being racist?
    That’s because whites and partisan blacks are dominating the commentary about black racism, so that white guilt is giving the most vicious anti-white black racism a pass.

  • Leland64

    “We need protection now on city buses” says the sign in the photo. Protection from whom? Those marauding “youth” gangs working on destroying any hope of recovery for Detroit.

    • Edward Przydzial

      protection from they own kind… say it fuck faced democrats. liberals allowed detroit to become an african jungle of disease, crime and poverty as they fill the prison system… detroit will NEVER return to it’s former glory because all the PRODUCTIVE people left that toilet bowl a long time ago… let the monkey’s run they own zoo.

  • UCSPanther

    If they don’t want me in that hellhole because of the color of my hide, no problem.

    They want their declining, rat-infested ruin of a city, they can have it. The smart ones moved out a long time ago…

    • Race_Dissident

      Such is the depth of black hatred for whitey, that a very high percentage of them would prefer to be destitute or even dead than to be in close proximity to whites. If whites ever come to reciprocate those sentiments, there won’t be any blacks remaining in America.

  • Edward Przydzial

    until you get robbed, beaten or killed. these racist blacks in detroit are the most vile form of haters and they continue to cry racism when THEY ARE the racists as they whine about the fucked up city they made for themselves… they want whitey to step up and pay some more. they want whitey to take the blame for they plight… the plight they made. they ruined detroit and it’s white man’s fault. remember kids. ;)

  • Edward Przydzial

    Blacks in Detroit hate whitey precisely because white success all too accurately and painfully reflects, in photo-negativity, black stupidity and dysfunctionality. Nobody likes to be reminded of their own faults.

  • MystiKasT

    Blacks cannot take responsibility for their own actions and will blame whites at any chance.
