So there's this fundraiser to build a neighborhood to bring Detroit's young people back to the city. As a young person who loves the idea, there's a part of me that is so proud to see people organizing and doing something positive.
But then there is the part of me that feels like raising money isn't going to be enough. What needs to happen is that there needs to be a complete overhaul of all business is done. The auto industry sucked the city dry by trying to keep labor as cheap as possible, and then when they discovered cheaper labor pools, moving their factories elsewhere.
If there's going to be real change, it's going to have to involve reworking the entire city.
