>tfw white and born in Detroit
and i don't live in the suburbs. i live in actual detroit.
And I'm gone, I know right where I'm going
Sorry momma I'm grown, I must travel alone
ain't gon' follow the footsteps I'm making my own
Only way that I know how to escape from this 8 Mile Road
>resell them in 30 years
Because no one wants to live in an area that is +90% black. Detroit will not be any better in 30 years from now. And you can't actually do anything with that land. If you build a brand new house there it will be much less than the land it's siting on. No one wants it. You can actually buy perfectly good homes right now for $500 or less but people don't do it because it's impossible to live there safely and even if you land bank it you still have to pay property tax, which in the ends would cost you more money than you would make by investing and holding onto the property to resell in the future. Detroit is dead.
Why haven't you left yet?
Alternatively, why hasn't Detroit turned into a youthful cultural center full of young artists and entrepreneurs yet?
You guys could literally party like it's Berlin 1986 with your house prices goddamn
>Alternatively, why hasn't Detroit turned into a youthful cultural center full of young artists and entrepreneurs yet?
Midtown Detroit's slowly going that way at this point. That and nearby Woodbridge neighborhood, seems like.
It's just horribly poor and abandoned and depressing. Violent crimes have abated a bit, largely due to everybody just leaving the city.
>be in berlin, 2011
>pay 330€ for a decent apartment
>all is well
>be in berlin, 2016
>pay fucking 1072€ for the same sized shit in a worse neighborhood
FUCKING HIPSTERS STOP FLOCKING TO MY CITY AND VOTING LEFT STOP FUCKING PROTESTING EVERY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT REEEEE
Detroit has a lot of nice architecture. If it were 90% white instead of 90% nigger, it'd be such an awesome city.
does it? im not familiar with the region. I just wish the city could return to it's glory days...
the city would enter a new renaissance if every black detroiter disappeared tonight
There's actually a gang of lawn mowers who go around and try to tidy up the parks and such on a regular basis.
>does it? im not familiar with the region. I just wish the city could return to it's glory days...
The whole reason Detroit is how it is now is because of it's glory days. Mid-century Detroit was a boom town built around a single industry, it was doomed to collapse eventually as long as it was so terribly specialized around the auto industry.
well i think a pretty good city could be built in its ruins. just gotta wait until the nigs move first.
It's not black people themselves that are the problem. There was a primarily black political machine built by Coleman Young, but that's in tatters at this point, especially with Kwame Kilpatrick dragging the remnants of that machine down. Dave Bing and Dennis Archer were both pretty legit mayors.
Oh course, there were the riots, but that was nearly half a century ago now.
>people complaining about their lives in the first world
>it counts as poor and depressing
tbf I've been posting the more flattering sort of photos.
I am in NYC and saw this very upper middle class blonde mom with kids get into the subway in black Brooklyn.
The only white person around was this hipster guy who was quick to talk to her "so are you visiting, where are you from"
"I'm from Detroit"
"Oh like dearborn"
"No Detroit the city, we are visiting friends"
She was willing to chat, other folks started talking to her and she was comfortable.
It was nice to see a older white women tourist not act all weird and afraid of black people, folks respect that out here.
I live in pic related, how do i become a rich and famous rapper?
Breaks my heart seeing buildings like these being abandoned and eventually demolished.
Detroit didn't fail because of the blacks, it failed because the auto industry failed. It is a similar situation for the entire region, but it an a city named Buffalo in western NY were hit especially bad because they were run poorly and couldn't transition to a service-based economy. Detroit didn't actually even lose its whites, they just moved to the suburbs. Buffalo however is hemorrhaging people like how a man with Ebola does to blood.
im aware the city failed because of economics. but im talking about the CURRENT detroit. if the city wasn't 90% nig, art hipsters would be moving there en mass and it'd be a cool city.
