194. ever evolving
Th migration of different ethnic groups radially out from the city center has been going on for 100 years. The composition of the close-in suburbs is changing, yes, but the dynamic is not and it is nothing new. Italian and Polish and Greek people out Van Dyke and Gratiot, Jewish people from 12th Street to the Mumford district to Oak Park to Southfield are examples. It is and has always been primarily African-American people who have the least mobility and are trapped in the city proper. Hence, I suggest that any discussion about the city of Detroit must include consideration of racism as a factor.
