  • to whom it may concern: Dianna Ross is not the only black celebrity who was born in the D. let's not forget Derrick Coleman, Jalen Rose, Tommy Hearns, Martha Gibbs, we even had a miss america that went to cass tech, Kwame M. Kilpatrick, and out of all of the original Motown hit sensations you mean to tell me none of them was from Detroit? and that is only to name a few. it is very sad to see how accurate all of our crime rates and how we compare to other cities and we can't get proper recognition for our numerous amount of talent. added by shawn
