Dearborn Heights is pretty low rent. Dearborn is a little better, but not much. Both areas are heavily Muslim/Arabic.

Dearborn Heights is a tale of two cities. Look at it on a map. Portions of it are quite nice (Gulley Road and area) and portions of it are right next to Inkster and it shows.

I'm going to cut through the City Data code and give you the truth: Dearborn is full of brown people. Now, there's a simple rule of thumb about brown or black people, according to Metro Detroit City Data users: Do they live in downtown Detroit, Midtown, Corktown, or Woodbridge? Then thumps up! Those places are safer than the suburbs! But anywhere else? Run away as fast as you can! Well, I take that back: the Catholic Chaldeans in Sterling Heights are considered harmless enough, I guess.

See how the above poster made a disparaging comment about Inkster? That's because lots of black people live there! The City Data consensus would be to live in Canton or Plymouth and make the commute.

Your welcome. I just saved you a lot of time.

So you're suggesting that Inkster is a nice place?

Inkster has some crime issues. Sure. But I definitely wouldn't have a problem living in Dearborn Heights, and I would live in Inkster if it came down to it, although I'd be more selective. Inkster has quite a bit of public housing for a small suburb, and that's where the problems come from. Otherwise, the suburbs are probably no more dangerous than Dearborn.

Here's why you're probably better off not being too terribly close to Inkster. It's class, not color. Not saying the whole place is hell on earth, but not a recommendable place without local knowledge of what blocks are still okay.

26710 Ross St Inkster MI - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #212106939 - Realtor.com®

Price reinforces exclusivity in real estate. If a fry cook can afford to buy a house in a neighborhood, probably not a good idea to buy and live there long term.

Let's not forget all the prostitution on Michigan Avenue, either.

Plymouth? Completely recommended if you can afford it. Higher household income than Grosse Pointe last time I checked. Better housing market, too. It (or neighboring Northville) would be where I would go for my next house if I didn't work so far east.

In other words, you don't want to associate with "low class" people. Did you know, for example, that there is quite a bit of prostitution that goes on next to the I-75 ramp by 14 Mile & John R? I know from people that worked at the Bob Evans near there.

And I can cherry pick in cities like Warren and find houses just as cheap. Should we say the whole city is junk, then? That would be ridiculous (although some of you probably believe that)!

We have a real problem in Metro Detroit, a problem that's been repeated in many other metropolitan areas. We love new developments because they have no blight and generally lack either social class or racial diversity - you can enjoy tons of new, shiny things with folks that are just like you! It's like the perfect solution! But then, as these communities mature, the maintenance and redevelopment costs go up and diversity creeps in, which leads to problems. And rather than fix those problems, which just try to build another community farther out.

When does it end?

Oh yeah, when we run out of money.

I am so sorry I want to live in a safe place and send my kids to good schools. You're absolutely right, I'm the problem -- not the lowlife drug dealers and violent thugs that ruin neighborhoods. I'll just move my family to Inkster and send my kids to Inkster schools. Nevermind that it's a violent hellhole, we must bow to DIVERSITY. My kids will learn so much from the neighbors who post videos of themselves beating people half to death on the internet.

Sorry, but not everyone wants to subject their children to a social experiment. Might I ask what bastion of diversity you live in?
