Or find new ways to get ownership. This is a great opportunity for black community leaderships to get their hands on some type of government refacement program[changing the old face of Detroit to a new one]. It is something they can create themselves and implement the policies and procedures that will HELP the people in their community to acquire home ownership. But! First? Black folks gotta STOP being CROOKS long enough to help their people. Cuz unfortunately blackfolks have a tendency to prey on their own. We gotta de-vain this African mentality that is shown in conflict countries where the elite take advantage of the poor. Some of us have that SAME mindset here in this country. If we can remove ourselves from that decaying psychological condition ingrained in us by the European/Asians, we can show how we can HELP ourselves. Hellllllllll we help everybody else. Now it's our turn to do for ourselves. Detriot can be the model on how. But!
