usually , rapidly integrating metro areas are ones in which the overall population is growing fast. But the Detroit area clearly isn't growing fast at all.

I've also read that crime has gone up a lot in the Detroit suburbs - apartment managers should take responsibility and screen applicants better.


Whenever you notice an influx of shady people moving into an apartment building you live in , or if a building near you has this going on, remember that you can write to management about it. Explain that you'll move out if they don't screen people better - if numerous people in the building do this, that should get their attention.

I personally won't stop bringing up these kinds of things until liberals stop with the double standards - "Its good to be proud of being black or any other non-white race, but very racist to be proud of being white." I'm not even trying to make a case for white pride , I'm about destroying this persistent , politically correct nonsense which many liberals blindly adhere to.

I think the problem is that race has always been a double standard and guess in favor of who? That can't be disputed. Also, such threads aren't about pride, but just illustrates the social and demographic realities in regards to living in the this country.
