Rush Limbaugh Says The Downfall Of Detroit Is Black People

Via NYDailyNews

Rush Limbaugh claimed the large black population in Detroit caused a “white flight” from the urban center to suburbia, ultimately leading to the city’s demise.

The conservative radio host told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Tuesday that civil rights protests in the ’60s caused white residents to flee, with the Detroit’s first African-American Mayor Coleman Young largely to blame for causing the unrest in 1967, according to Limbaugh.

“Detroit is left with nothing but liberal Democrats running it,” he said, adding the Michigan town was a “petri dish of everything the Democrat Party stands for,” with a preponderance of unions, pension and health care for people after they retire.

A review of the interview by ThinkProgress pointed out that Young didn’t become mayor of Detroit until 1973, several years after the riots in 1967.

Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, who is African-American, announced July 18 that the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection in federal court.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, who is white, called the move a “difficult step,” but the “only viable option to address a problem that has been six decades in the making.”

Census data from 2010 shows 83% of Detroit’s total population is black — the highest percentage of African-Americans for any U.S. city.
