The editor of Detroit's largest black newspaper has given up on black folks running Detroit. He calls on educated white folks to rush in and rescue it. I wouldn't have stated it in those terms, but he did. He's surely more fed up than I could ever imagine. He's an older man, and I assume a life-long Detroit resident. His despair and disappointment is surely unmeasurable. I disagree that this problem is black and the solution is white. But I suppose it approximately is.
In any case, a pretty devastating essay.
