Re: Detroit Has a New Mayor
Detroit never recovered from 17 years of Coleman Young as mayor. If there is a bigger racist, not sure who it would be. He successfully chased most business out of town and with the loss of that tax base, the demise of the city was inevitable. Of course, electing crooks as mayor didn't help.
I lived in Detroit a couple of times during my career and it is just sad to see such a great city decline to the point of bankruptcy.
