Top Definition
A person whose love for Detroit rises to the level of an idealogical worldview, usually in stark contrast to objective reality.

Detroitist is adapted from the Andrew Sullivan-coined term Chrisitianist - a Christian whose faith become their political idealogy. Christianist was derived from the term Islamist used to describe terrorists who attempt to defend their actions with Islamic scripture.
Joe is a Detroitist because, despite an indicted Mayor, a bankrupt school system, and double digit unemployment, he believes Detroit is a healthy, functional city. He cites the 100 downtown bars and restaurants as proof of the city's success.
