Oh, I didn’t have any problem with your post...it just made me curious to see exactly what is the racial break-down of Detroit. I know alot of people who are ‘from Detroit’...all white, and all have decided to leave.
A liberal will call this ‘white flight’ and blame them for all of Detroit’s problems.
A typical man on the street intuitively knows (but isn’t brave enough to state it out loud) that the problem runs deeper.
And I think you nailed it with this statement:
“It is easy to mobilize people by shouting racism.”
It is human nature - once you give yourself permission to fail, because there is a full time scapegoat that can be blamed, you will no longer attempt to reach your full potential.....and you get places like Detroit. I think George W. Bush called it the ‘soft racism of low expectations’.
And of course this "liberal" probably lives in a gated community.
