Detroit like other large rust belt cities lost their industry and jobs because of NAFTA/GATT. If Trump is seriously going to try to fix this problem it really could make America great again. Bring our jobs back!
I've heard that there are dozens of US cities with dangerous levels of lead in the water. Flint is simply getting all the attention.
And here's a former Detroit mayor who could not stay out of jail and prison???!!!

Detroit is the birthplace of techno and motown.

with the right policies and with the cheap rent, it can flourish as an artistic center once again

And it used to be the car manufacturing capital???!! It's name used to be the "Motor City". Michael Moore shot up to fame with his first "documentary" "Roger and Me" about Flint Michigan and it's automobile ills.
it's a shithole now, but lots of history and culture to exploit and revive.

need the right policies. artists need CHEAP RENT. govt can support these initiatives.
There's a word for government subsidized apartments: ghettos.
I wonder how our friend Fugazi is making out?

And speaking of Flint, don't forget Grand Funk Railroad you guys!



I believe Anti-Archon lives there as well.

Fugazi, like myself, used to live there. But I think he left a while back as well.

I love Michigan. I still follow and watch my teams there(Michigan State, Lions, Pistons).

But the city is in a lot of trouble.

I was on the Strip here in Las Vegas and somebody from Michigan told me they were building a bunch of new things in Detroit but had no idea where the money was coming from and what they stuff was going to be used for.

Either way...Mayor Coleman Young was pretty corrupt and not the best influence on the city.

Mayor Dennis Archer was pretty good but wasn't there very long.

Kwame Kilpatrick ended any positive momentum the city had built under Archer and drove it into the ground.
My favorite Detroit team, the Red Wings, is finally getting a new home; the Little Caesars Arena, due to open in 2017. Where the money for it is coming from I don't know.
