    Detroit Is Coveted By The Wealthy. It Has The International Crossing, Well Constructed Homes, Safe From Natural Disasters And A Beautiful Riverfront.
    Black People Have Been Deprived Opportunity After Opportunity. The Rich Whites Have Swooped In And Picked Off Many Gems For The Low Low Price. Barriers Are In The Way To Keep Detroiters From Getting Jobs. Regionalization Has Only Opened The Coffers To Outsiders. When We Talk About Jobs, It Is Always Attracting New Talent, Not Employing Existing Residents.
    Any Blog Comments Following Articles In The Majot Papers Regularly Refer To City Residents In The Most Vile Racist Comments Imaginable. The City Suburb Divide Will Always Be.
    We Need A Federal Urban Agenda That Prioritizes The Needs Of The Residents That Will Make Them The Tax Base Needed To Grow. I'm Not Saying That The Suburbs Aren't Needed For The Success Of The City. I Am Saying That Before We Open The Flood Gates To All Outsiders, We Need To Focus On Lifting The Existing Residents First.
