Maybe it's not a bad area. That was my first time down in that area, and will probably be my last.

Were you ever threatened, approached aggressively or treated in a manner other than courteous by anyone you encountered?

No. I was treated very good, and with respect. The area seemed rather sketchy though. I guess I would go to Ryans Auto Parts again. The area seemed more industrial than anything.

Take off the color blinders man. You're letting irrational fear dictate your actions.

You should've honked at the dude's girlfriend, it seems to have worked well for you in the past.

Yea you're right. I guess that being my first time in that area, I thought it was going to be much worse. It really wasn't bad at all, other than the roads. The customers were quite colorful though. No that wasn't a race joke.

I hereby change my notion on the matter, and would go back to Ryans Auto Parts... if they fix the roads.

If it looks like a thug, acts like a thug and talks like a thug, there is a good chance it's a thug.

When I worked in the hood in D-rot, I could feel negativity from the locals. Some were not bad, they just didn't like whitey while others had bad intent on their minds if they thought they could get away with something. I felt very uneasy working down there.

I recently had a situation at my shop where some Saginaw folk came in for an emergency repair. The black guy was polite but had the look and mannerisms of a ninja/drug dealer. He had a chubby blond white girlfriend with him and a morbidly obese blond white land whale too. As I went in and out of my office, I was constantly picking up pieces of conversation about food stamp trades and women who should breed with the black guy (Yes, they said breed.). I was trying to be non judgemental but it was hard. When it was time to pay the bill (around $200), the black guy pulled out a roll of cash at least 2" in diameter and started peeling through $100 bills to pay me. My jaw dropped, there had to be $3000+ in that roll! You can say what you want but all the signs pointed to this individual being involved in a high margin, illegal sales of some type.

No no no, i'm quite sure he's a stockbroker or lawyer or something like that- to insinuate anything else is racist!

I haven't been up since September. I've been working 6 days a week 12+ hours a day. I do wanna go up and bring home the Polaris Ranger. I wanna put a plow on it. Come spring time we will be going construction crazy to finish the place up.

How you behave and carry yourself is everything. Imo that place and area is fine. Simple people that just want their shit together so they have a ride. This goes for majority of automotive venues in and around Detroit.

If you want to experience uncomfortable go to a party store in Detroit at night. Bitches will flash their titties (inside the store) if you buy them a single shooter
