Detroit: A Culture of Death by Akindele Akinyemi
Detroit is a culture of death.
It is filled with death and destruction.
There is a reason why this place is so heavily Democratic.
To keep people in the dark on survivial.
The reality is no matter who is elected as long as we are not up to the task of rebuilding our communites and creating a culture of life we will be doomed to live in this city.
The basic fundamental problem of any society that is misled and led by paranoid activists is the educational system.
Predatory lending, check cashing places, mismagement of money, redlining, affirmative action, name recognition during elections are all rooted in the lack of education.
Our city is beyond help. We love voting Democrat based on tradition and NOT issues. We make it a point to hate white people because we blame them for our problems. Even though Black men are killing Black men in this city we still find a way to blame the white man for this.
This is called ignorance.
While we were sleep on election night last year we allowed Mayor Kilpatrick to get back in office. All because you were sleep. Who saved the Mayor? The young adults who can barely read and write.
An educated man like Kilpatrick knew this and played off his own people's ignorance by using the race card. Unfortunately, that card is still valid because he is in office another four years.
Had DeVos or Bush used the race card the NAACP would have called it racist. You see where I'm going with this ignornace.
We embrace a culture of death due to the lack of education. We are becoming dumb and dumber by the minute. We sport tattoos all over our bodies. Our women are damn near classless in this city. Speaking of such, we lead the country in producing single motherhood. Detroit also led the country in STDs in 2004-2005.
Violence is up in our city. So is divorces. And while you have a church community that thinks from a liberal perspective we have even allowed homosexuality to fill in our pews.
This is why Detroit has embraced a culture of death.
Only 11% of the total population in Detroit have a bachelors degree. When you look at the percentage of Black people with bachelors degrees that percentage drops to only 6.8%.
Only 4.2% in of total population have a graduate or professional degree. When you look at the percentage of Black people with graduate or professional degrees that percentage drops to 1.6%.
However, 30% of the Black population in Detroit (or 169,475) have a high school diploma.
So guess what? If the Black population in Detroit is 775,772 and you only have 169,475 high school graduates that is going to leave you with 606,297 or 22% of the BLACK population that makes up 81% of the total population in Detroit with no education.
Remember these people are ADULTS. Adults who vote.
That only leaves a very small percentage of people who can articulate an issue intelligently.
Most people who work on Democratic (and in some cases Republican) campaigns cannot fully articulate a position that they feel passionate about.
Detroit is a Democratic city that has a school system that had gone straight to hell. Yet, people will not regionalize the schools because they play boogey-man politics (i.e. the white man is going to take our schools away).
Our water rates are astronomical. However, instead of privitizing the water we play "de white man is going to get us" politics.
Crime and insurance rates are ridiculous. Yet, we blame the white man for this.
All of this and while we are not teaching our children to become self-sufficient and educated we teach them to become 2nd-3rd generation bums by being on welfare and Bridge cards.
Black people embrace this culture of death on their own.
We enjoy killing ourselves and drinking ourselves to death. This is why they advertise liquor in our community and not in Farmington Hills.
We enjoy sticking our nasty ding-a lings up in any hoodrat or sewer dweller that has full blown AIDS or STDs. Not to mention that you have children from Lashonda, LaRhonda, Shenika, Shaquandra, Sha-meeka, Tomeeka and any other filthy ghetto hood rat that you can screw to death.
We enjoy smoking ourselves to death. This includes weed, crack, cigars, cigarettes, and even 51s.
We enjoy eating ourselves to death. Pork, the hood's white meat.
We sell drugs to one another. A form of fiscal death.
We USE drugs. Another form of biological death.
We dropout of school. A form of eductional genocide.
We live in the hood. We enjoy living in poverty and blaiming our problems on white Republicans. Environmental Genocide.
We sleep with roaches (human or insect). Environmental genocide.
We accept filth into our churches by accepting homosexuality, transvesites and bi-sexual people. Spiritual death.
This is the real reason why Blacks are Democrats here in Detroit. The Democratic Party accepts death by supporting homosexuality, abortions, big government ran schools and high taxes (fiscal death).
We get excited when we see hood movies like Waist Deep or Training Day. We love corruption and pray for it in our own churches. We have our TV's on at 6:00pm looking at the News to see who got shot as if it was a preview or something in a movie.
We cannot enjoy the fireworks in Downtown Detroit without someone getting shot. We cannot go to a Star Theater at Fairlane without you hearing some sewer rats yelling and talking on their cell phone during the movie.
We cannot go to Meijer in peace without seeing thieves stealing from Aisle 5. Not to mention how they stole some mouthwash and toothpaste on the way out.
How many times have you heard Fallujah in your backyard in Detroit because while you are trying to sleep you can hear the sounds of AK-47s going off.
How many times have you heard cultural nationalists blame the white man for all of your social, economic and political ills in Detroit. This is a case of intellectual death.
It is forbidden to go to places in public like the Comerica Tastefest and African World Festival without seeing tattoos on every body part on a ghetto dweller. In fact, a taste of cultural death in our communtiy is watching our hood rats wear weave down to their ass, no draws and a gold cap on your tooth but your bra is too small (however you are telling us it's a push up bra) and ta-ta's are popping out. Plus we can see the rose on your left ta which tells us you are a freak.
If you would just look and examine the root of our problems you will find it is based on education. As long as Detroit is uneducated we will never become a culture of life.
