Leader in 'bail out Detroit' movement emerges

 Councilwoman famously called for 'quid pro quo' after blacks voted for Obama

A new leader has emerged in Detroit’s effort to prevent a state takeover of the city. The Detroit News reports that city Councilwoman JoAnn Watson “has become the public voice of Detroiters determined to hang on to self-rule.”

Some may recognize Watson as the councilwoman who called upon Barack Obama to bail out Detroit, saying, “Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that.”

Watson wants to stop the state takeover, and her efforts come at a time of occasionally ominous rhetoric from some activists in Detroit.

“This is white-on-black crime,” Minister Malik Shabazz said during a public hearing. “This is white supremacy. Before you can take over our city, we will burn it.”

  1. Burning down Detroit would be classified as urban redevelopment.

    Detroit is what all those Honda, Mazda, BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Suzuki, etc buyers have given us. Nothing more hypocritical than an American flag on a Jap vehicle.

    Well neocons....free traders....you have your America....Detroit is it. Literally a shit hole.
