Detroit has had some downfalls, but that is because the auto companies were doing poorly. What happened to Detroit could happen to any large city.
As for the crime, look at any other city-New York, Chicago and L.A. are worse. There are not many people living in Detroit anymore, because they all live in suburbs.

Also, Detroit has some great fancy restaurants, a great river view, and architecture. Motown (Supremes, Temptations, etc.) and the beginnings of rock-and-roll started here.

Because the majority of girls attending high school in Metropolitan Detroit are whorish and slutty, receiving a DEtroit is synonymous with getting head.

A giant cesspool, crime-infested, wasteland, decaying, toilet of a city.

(n) A city in south eastern Michigan filled entirely of niggers thanks to their corrupt government from 1950s to present day. The only reason the city is at all relevant in the world today is due to it's ability to draw white people's money because of the professional sporting arenas and casinos that are unfortunately located there.
Man 1: Dude I'm bored, let's go to Detroit
Man 2: Ok, sure, because I really feel like seeing a bunch of homeless niggers today. Use your brain dumb ass.
