Killing Detroit is the story of a major American city ripped open by the worst elements of human existence. Greed, racism, and a complete disregard for human life combined to create an American tragedy. These elements joined a destructive partnership to bring an entire city to its knees. As an eyewitness to these deadly events, the time has come to pull the covers off this massive government cover-up. The killing described here represents much more than a one-time event. More so, what you are about to read sheds light on a generational killing that has impacts that still linger today.
People who visit the nation's automobile capital always ask, "Why does this place look like this?" This complex question is in response to the bombed-out ruins of Detroit's inner city. Killing Detroit answers that question once and for all with brutal honesty. This story is part memoir, part government-sponsored criminal enterprise, and part murder mystery. Killing Detroit argues that we live in a nation founded on the premise that one's race is a measuring stick for valuing rights, respect, and life. This book is my passionate response to that vile and contemptuous premise. What you are about to read is, without question, an angry and violent book that pulls no punches. Killing Detroit is not a book with the singular purpose of reading enjoyment. It is more of a historical confirmation of the past present and a prediction of America's future. However, Killing Detroit also reveals what inspires visionary, determined, and courageous activism and how those elements can force us to face the consequences of our actions. You will discover as you read several forceful, unsettling ideas that are directly in opposition to America's addiction to racism. Each idea promises to spark powerful and enlightening reflections for each reader.
