Default To the people of Detroit

You get what you deserve.

What I think is really funny is that before the election every news channel out there was picking on every single flaw he had. Now its like they they can't blow him enough....****ing pathetic.

This really is a shame. I believe Hendrix would have been a good choice. He worked closely with Archer, and Archer was on the right path.

Bones said it well yesterday....Kwame acted as the way "they" (the city residents) would have acted (i hope that does not sound racist). I wonder if he was chosen b/c people knew what they were getting instead of the unknown.

A co-worker of my wife lives in Indian Village. She said she was voting for Kwame b/c there were speculations that Hendrix did some shady things when he was on Archers staff. My response is you are an idiot. There was speculation that Hendrix did wrong doing, and proof that Kwame RAN the wrong doings.

It's easy to say they get what they deserve... Unfortunately what happens to the city of Detroit will effect the rest of metro Detroit... It sucks! Another Coleman Young in the making...

Kwame has the "keepin it real" appeal. A lot of the people voting are undereducated and want to live the "thug" life. They don't see the ramifications of the their voting, they only see that Kwame is someone they can identify with.
I hate Detroit. I went to school at Wayne St. The place is full of people who have no ambition and they mostly feel that the government should take care of them. I am not saying everyone is like that, but when I was volunteering for social work, I saw some of the worst cases of dependancy and corruption I hope could exist. I think if the place imploded we might be better off.

Detroit should just be called "Thug, Michigan"
And we are supposed to have the superbowl here, I really hope our city does not end up being a laughing joke.

I agree Kerry, he has the keepin it real attitude. I heard him say "when I went rollin down the streets of Detroit" this morning in his vistory speech. I ended up walking away shortly after.

The people of "Thug" don't see it from our side, and we can't clearly understand why they don't see it from ours.

We don't know how bad it could be and they don't realize how good they could have it.

I don't mind downtown, but man the close surrounding areas need to be torched.

I grew up in Detroit, and I work there. I am old enough to remember when it wasn't the pit it is now. It really saddens me to drive around and see how little of a once great city is left.
I wasn't suprised to see Kwame get re-elected. I mean I watched them elect Young over and over.

I sometimes wonder if it's a big F-U to the suburbs to elect people like Young and Kilpatrick. When the 'burbs get behind a candidate, hoping they'll make for a better Detroit and surrounding area, Detroit proper always picks the loser.
