Having lived in and about Detroit for about 35+ years (no longer), the scary thing is......... If Kwame Kilpatrick was left out of jail and ran for mayor again, he would be re-elected in a landslide. Poor Dave Bing did not have a chance in the face of a City Council made up of second generation, corrupt black politicians who have controlled the city since the days of "King" Coleman Young, the crook who initiated the destruction of the once vibrant city. Look at most of the African countries, released from colonialism and then "governed" by decades of corrupt, and sometimes ignorant blacks. Look at the facts, intelligent analysis can yield ONLY a single TRUTH. All the irrational claims of racism cannot hide the FACTS.
