And I could go to the New York City page and ask the question that I read/heard that 20% of the men were wife beating members of the mafia. Without posting a link, or anything, it IS a trollish question without merit.

Wait and you will get PMs from people who tell the truth. Detroit has always been a pimp and auto city, now with the autos being made in Mississippi, it is a pimp town you are correct.
Aw Come on, do the math !
20% of the men in a town of about 900,000 = 90,000 pimps?
That would be how many prostitutes?
Even a legal area of Nevada would not have that many working in brothels.

My math is different, but you make a good point.

With 20% pimps if each pimp had three hookers, you would have 630,000 people in Detroit involved in prostitution. That is substantially over half. In fact, it is over 2/3.

I have not seen anyone in Detroit that I cold identify as a hooker or a pimp. I have not been approached by anyone in Detroit with offers of prostitution. If 2/3 of the people here are involved in prostitution, how can that be?

I do remember a "preacher" who used to come to Wayne State I think his name was reverend Jim. He used to say stupid things like this. One time they carried him all the way downtown and threw him in the river. Another time the WSU chaplin came out and debated him. The students loved seeing Jim get an oral whooping and everyone was cheering. Later years if Jim showed up, so did the riot police. He was an agitator and would say whatever would most anger the crowd. His favorite was to say that every woman at WSU was a hooker and every man was a pusher and a pimp. Perhaps the OP has been listening to Reverend JIm.

Perhaps our S.L.D. is Rev. Jim?
