Why is Detroit not too big to fail?
There are black people in Detroit. They deserve their fate no matter how dire it may be. At least according to the right wing assholes that have captured the nation.

1. I don't know that the result would be different if Detroit were white.

Regardless of what the situation may have been until circa 1970s, I think the heavy hitters--at least those involved in elective politics-- use race to gin up their respective bases, but all they themselves focus on is wealth and power.

They leave all the other shiny things, like race, choice and gay rights to the hoi polloi, to keep them/us ginned up and divided. Meanwhile, they buy $2000 waste baskets for their offices and create private towns for themselves, while the majority are wondering how long food banks can possibly stay open---and that's before any cuts to OASDI.
