Detroit, aka Motown  is where Henry Ford was a pioneer in motor cars. It grew, it thrived but good things do not last forever. This was demonstrated by the arrival of Devils Night. It has been around for a long time and was largely harmless fun. The Wikipedia tells us that it turned nasty in the 1970s then faded away in the 1990s. The Wiki lies. It also claims by omission that blacks were not the criminals who made it dangerous. You are fully at liberty to believe the  Wikipedia. It is often very good but when things get political, things change or, at all events reportage does. The Wikipedia is part of the Main Steam Media or perhaps, just a Fellow Traveller. It has the same effect. The Wiki has its system of editors. Tell it their way or get censored. An alternative is the Metapedia; their loathing is mutual. Now Detroit is the Abomination of Desolation, which is why 97% of people have moved out. 

Have a look at for an honest view. VDare  is different. VDare tells it like it is. So does  AmRen at  The Late Great City of Detroit. Still doubtful?

Detroit Is A Ruin Says BBC But Not Why


Diversity Is Strength - Allegedly. It Is Also Devil's Night In Detroit
There are few ways to test the health of your community better then by seeing how well a holiday is celebrated by your neighbors. Last year, we asked if you if your city could pass the Trick-or-Treating test for Halloween, knowing that only parents living in an actual community—one replete with high social capital—would feel comfortable sending their children out into the night to ask neighbors for candy.

Devil's Night 2009

Remember, Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam found that the cities with the highest percentage of social capital/trust were those that were the least “diverse—i.e. the most homogenous.

Now imagine you live in a city that, presumably, should have high social capital—90 percent of the inhabitants are of the same race. But instead, that city’s government has to issue “emergency temporary ordinance that requires anyone attempting to buy gasoline in cans to provide identification, and a 6 p.m. curfew for youths younger than 18,” from October 29- Hallowe'en night (Oct. 31). [Detroit Angels' Night patrols ready to go, UPI, 10-26-12]. The minors’ parent or guardian will also be issued a parent responsibility violation ticket. [ Detroit's Devil's Night curfew, gas ordinance to stay enforced during storm conditions, By Eric Lacy, , October 30, 2012 ]

Yes, we’re taking about 90 percent black Detroit. On “Devil's Night” (October 30), the good citizens of Detroit have taken to torching abandoned buildings and long-idle commercial real estate.

Ze’ev Chafets wrote the still-definitive account of the terror that strikes the Motor City every Halloween eve in his 1991 book Devil’s Night: And Other True Tales of Detroit:

I vaguely remembered Devil's Night. When I was a kid growing up in Pontiac, a grimy industrial clone of Detroit ten miles north of the city, it had been a time of harmless pranks—window soaping, doorbell ringing and rolls of toilet paper in the neighbor’s trees. But it had been twenty years since I lived there, and a lot of things had changed. One of them was Devil’s Night.

Three years earlier, in 1983, for reasons no-one understands, America’s sixth largest city suddenly erupted into flame. Houses, abandoned buildings, even unused factories burned to the ground in an orgy of arson that lasted for seventy-two hours. When it was over the papers reported more than 800 fires. Smoke hung over the city for weeks.

Even my friend’s dramatic description did not prepare me for what I saw that night. On the streets of Detroit I could sense the same rush of energy, the same sense of excitement that always accompanies nocturnal action. Police helicopters circled overhead and fire trucks, sirens blaring, raced form one conflagration to another. Cops guarded the firemen as they fought the flames. It was only when I saw the faces of the neighborhood people, mostly older blacks with long coats over their bathrobes, standing grimly on their porches, armed with shotguns and garden hoses, protecting their property, that I realized this was no homecoming rally; on Devil’s Night, they use homes for kindling.

My friend’s car was equipped with a police-band radio, and as he drove from fire to fire he gradually became the leader of a motorcade. At every stop, people gawked at the flames and passed around bottles of whiskey and thermos caps of steaming coffee. The suburbanites talked with bittersweet nostalgia about their old neighborhoods in Detroit, pointed to childhood sites now sunk into decrepitude and shook their heads. The message was tacit but unmistakable—Look at what they’re doing to our city. “

In 1954, the city had been 76 percent white. Black population growth came courtesy of the “Great Migration” of blacks from the South. In 1940, before World War II defense plants led to the migration, Detroit was 90 percent white.

Perhaps in honor of the “great revolution”—disgraced former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s term for the July 23, 1967 black riot in Detroit, which left 43 dead, 467 injured, 7,2000 arrested, more than 2,000 buildings torched and essentially ended white rule in Detroit—the children and grandchildren of the victors in effect reenact their triumph every Halloween eve.

Life Magazine headlined its typical liberal Main Stream Media cover story celebration of that year’s riots Negro Revolt: The Flames Spread (August 4, 1967). That has proved unwittingly prescient.

In the 1994 movie The Crow, Hollywood took on the annual Devil’s Night torching of Detroit, featuring one of its favorite casting tricks—rarely found in real life— the multi-racial gang. The central plot trope: a white drug lord controlling three white and one black arsonist directs the flow of organized crime in the city.

As usual, Hollywood did not quite capture the essence of this uniquely black celebration. Chafets put it best: “Look at what they’re doing to our city.”

In a city completely controlled by black politicians and totally reliant on tax revenue from a black population that seems to have trouble sustaining a First World economy (even when inherited, as in the case of Detroit) it could be only a matter of time before money to pay for public services like firemen, and the police necessary to protect them, dries up.

Just a few weeks ago, Detroit police held an “Enter at Your Own Risk” rally in front of Comerica Park before a Tigers baseball game [Enter At Your Own Risk: Police Union Says ‘War-Like’ Detroit Is Unsafe For Visitors, CBS Detroit, 10-6-2012]. Just a few months ago, an emergency Federal grant/infusion of $22.5 million was needed to [ keep ] 164 Detroit firefighters on the job [Detroit Firefighters Layoffs Curbed Due To Federal SAFER Grant, More Help On The Way, Huffington Post, 7-9-2012].

Were David Duke suddenly in control of Hollywood, it would be impossible to script a more devastating polemic against black-majority rule then what has actually transpired in Detroit since both the “great revolution of 1967” and the election of Mayor Coleman Young in 1973. Toss in the reality of this black-fueled Devil's Night, and you’d have the type of script that D.W. Griffith shot in The Birth of a Nation.

The sad reality is that Detroit’ Devil’s Night represent nothing more than a funeral pyre for Western Civilization.

Although Mitt Romney is a self-proclaimed “son of Detroit” he has evaded domestic issues like the descent of our major cities into urban misery. But we aren’t far away from the Republican Party being forced to confront the unmentionable reasons Detroit burns every Devil’s Night.

If it is to remain a viable national party, that is.
Is Mr. Kersey overstating the case? If only he were. Detroit has been taken over by blacks. |It is becoming like South Africa, like Zimbabwe, like Hell.


Devil's Night ex Wiki
Devil's Night, or Hell Night, is a name associated with October 30, the night before Halloween. It is related to the "Mischief night" practiced in other parts of the United States and the world, but is chiefly associated with the serious vandalism and arson seen in Detroit, Michigan from the 1970s to the 1990s,[1] finally prompting the "Angel's Night" community response.......

However, in the early 1970s, the vandalism escalated to more devastating acts, such as arson. This primarily took place in the inner city, but surrounding suburbs were often affected as well.

The crimes became more destructive in Detroit's inner-city neighborhoods, and included hundreds of acts of arson and vandalism every year. The destruction reached a peak in the mid- to late-1980s, with more than 800 fires set in 1984, and 500 to 800 fires in the three days and nights before Halloween in a typical year.[2]

[ Alleged ] Decline of Devil's Night arson
By the early 1990s, Detroit saw little decline in Devil's Night arson.[3] After a brutal Devil's Night in 1994, then-mayor Dennis Archer promised city residents arson would not be tolerated. In 1995, Detroit city officials organized and created Angel's Night on and around October 29–31. Each year as many as 50,000 volunteers gather to patrol neighborhoods.[4][5] In 2010, however, the number of reported fires climbed to 169, a 42 percent increase over the previous year.
The Wiki is indulging in a bare faced lie. A 42% increase is NOT a decline or a decrease.

This is more about our current Financial Crisis 2008 than Teufelnacht per se.


Murder Versus Race
This graph dates back to 1998 which is when graph makers gave up on telling the truth.


Kwame Kilpatrick ex Wiki
The Wikipedia reads as honest on this one. There is too much dirt to ignore - if you want to be thought reliable. What colour is the mayor of Detroit? Need you stop to think? See the picture, know the truth.


Detroit - After Blacks Had A Go At It [ 29 March 2011]
Dying Detroit: Haunting photos of crumbling neighbourhoods highlight the terrible decline of America's once-great Motor City
Population drops 25 per cent to 713,777 - the city's lowest since 1910
Largely African-American population moves away to escape the terrible effects of the recession [ White people are long gone - Editor ]

Buildings rot on deserted streets that were once bustling thoroughfares It was the centre of America's industrial muscle, but now it lies in ruins - a stark portrait of urban decay ravaged by the global recession

The population of devastated Detroit has dropped by 25 per cent in the past ten years and is now at its lowest since 1910. Empty factories, burnt-out homes, silent banks and even derelict police stations litter the place once known as the 'Motor City' - where Henry Ford built his first car.
The Daily Mail does not tell us who did the destroying. Not did the Guardian when it ran this one last month - Detroit After Devil's Night . By contrast Chinese cities are thriving.


Detroit After Devil's Night
In downtown Detroit, the streets are lined with abandoned hotels and swimming pools, ruined movie houses and schools, all evidence of the motor city's painful decline. The photographs of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre capture what remains of a once-great city – and hint at the wider story of post-industrial America.
NB that the Grauniad does not hint at the cause of this evil, to wit black savages.


Three Out OF Four Blacks In Detroit Are Illiterate [ 14 July 2012 ]
In the first case of its kind, the American Civil Liberties Union is charging that the state of Michigan and a Detroit area school district have failed to adequately educate children, violating their “right to learn to read” under an obscure state law. The ACLU class-action lawsuit, to be filed Thursday, says hundreds of students in the Highland Park School District are functionally illiterate.

“None of those adults charged with the care of these children . . . have done their jobs,” said Kary L. Moss, executive director of the ACLU of Michigan....... The most recent state test scores for Highland Park schools show that 65 percent of fourth-graders and 75 percent of seventh-graders were not proficient in reading.

[ Editor’s Note: According to this website, the under-18 population of the Highland Park School District is at least 96 percent black. Revealing statistics about the district’s academic performance are available here. ]
These schools are largely run by blacks for blacks, presumably. Pupils can't or won't. Teachers don't either but they still draw their pay.


Detroit Dying [ 28 January 2013 ]
The derelict homes of a bankrupt city: ENTIRE streets in Detroit are left empty as families flee broke Motown in search of a better life
The city's budget problems have deepened to such an extent that it could run out of cash in a matter of weeks
Could be forced into what would be the largest-ever municipal bankruptcy filing in the United States Crime rate is rising and jobless rate twice figure for the country as a whole.........

The city's budget problems have deepened to such an extent that it could run out of cash in a matter of weeks or months and ultimately be forced into what would be the largest-ever Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy filing in the United States..........

A bankruptcy would be messy. The interests of creditors would likely collide with those of labor unions wanting to protect workers' benefits, said Eric Scorsone, a Michigan State University economist who has written papers on municipal bankruptcy and on the state's emergency manager laws........

It could also be racially explosive. Detroit has the largest percentage of black people of any U.S. city, with 83 percent of the population identifying themselves as African American, black or Negro, according to the 2010 U.S. census.
Down at the bottom the Mail admits the truth. Detroit is almost all black; whence the crime.


Detroit Defaulting On $2.5 Billion Debt [ 18 June 2013 ]
Detroit said Friday it would stop making payments on about $2.5 billion in unsecured debt and ask creditors to take about 10 cents on the dollar of what the city owes them in a move to avoid what bankruptcy experts have said would be the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history......... Under his proposal, underfunded pension claims likely would get less than the 10 cents on the dollar.... Detroit’s fiscal nightmare didn’t occur overnight. It’s been decades in the making as city leaders took out bonds at high interest rates to pay bills Detroit’s general fund couldn’t cover..... The city’s budget deficit could top $380 million by July 1. Orr believes Detroit’s long-term debt is more than $17 billion.
Fox News is polite enough not to explain the causes. Detroit is dying as people flee the blacks. The car industry is fading away. Work is going; people ditto. It is Multiculturalism in action. It is becoming like Liberia.


Detroit Down The Pan  [ 22 June 2013 ]
Detroit was once America's most prosperous city, but over the past 70 years it's slowly decayed, and what remains is a ghost town of crumbling facades and derelict houses, riddled with crime and, some say, heaving its last breaths. Photographer Ian Willms [ sic ] has photographed the modern ruin of Michigan's Motor City in all its dreadful and desolate splendor - the black and white images show a stark beauty in the industrial skeletons and bereft factories.

Areas of the city look eerily post-apocalyptic. There are currently 70,000 abandoned buildings in the city and empty schools, homes and once-grand 1920s hotels slowly rot.........

The Detroit riots of 1967 hastened the exodus from the city of many businesses seeking safer surrounds and economic desolation followed. Between 2000 and 2010 the population decreased by 25 per cent and was hovering around 713,000 in the 2010 census - a drop of more than 60 per cent from its high in 1950. It's likely to have fallen lower still in the intervening years.......

What few schools remain open are racially segregated.
Burnt out: Firefighters sift through the ashes of a burned down building. Detroit has had more than 11,000 fires every year for the past decade, many due to arson

On the road: Due to 24 failed attempts at building a successful public transport system in Detroit and a severe lack of infrastructure funding, many people walk vast distances to reach their destinations
The Mail mentions arson but not the colour of the perpetrators.


Detroit Mayor Gets 28 Years [ 12 October 2013 ]
Once a popular young politician, disgraced former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was ordered to spend 28 years behind bars on his convictions for racketeering, bribery, extortion and tax crimes.

“I think everyone here understands Mr. Kilpatrick was convicted of running a criminal enterprise,” Judge Nancy Edmunds said, adding the enterprise started while he was still in the state House of Representatives and continued through all six years he was in the mayor’s office. Edmunds said the scheme to steer contracts to pal Bobby Ferguson made projects more costly for a city that couldn’t afford it and drove contractors out of business.

The judge laid bare the accusations against Kilpatrick of fake jobs for family and friends, lavish parties, pay to play schemes, and secret affairs, saying he “has generally shown little remorse” for a bevy of infractions. She said it was sad he chose to “waste his talent on personal enrichment and aggrandizement,” when he had so many talents that could have helped the city.
Detroit is bankrupt because it is full of criminals like Kilpatrick. They are black. They are criminals. They are the problem. Will this one be all over the Main Stream Media? Not a chance. They pervert the truth for a pastime.

Detroit Most Violent City In America Says FBI  [ 30 September 2017 ]
Detroit has returned to its top spot as America’s most dangerous big city, according to the FBI, with violent crime — rape, murder, assault and robbery — spiking a staggering 15.7% in 2016 over the previous year.............

According to the FBI’s 2016 Uniform Crime Report, 13,705 violent crimes were reported last year in the city compared with 11,846 in 2015. However, the former world capital of auto manufacturing can take some solace from the fact it doesn’t lead in murder. That honour falls to St. Louis, followed by Baltimore. Detroit comes in third with 303 slayings in 2016.

And despite mounting concerns over Chicago’s skyrocketing homicide rate, it’s still lower than Detroit (28 per 100,000 residents in the Windy City compared to 45 murders per 100,000 residents in Motown).
Chicago is more successful than Detroit when it comes to murder. In fact Chicago Is More Dangerous Than Afghanistan. NB Three quarters of the killing is done by blacks, largely attacking their own. One example is Marvin Gaye, albeit in Los Angeles.
