Wake up people!!!! There is only one race!!!! That is the “human race”!!!!!

Did you notice that Detroit’s population is 85 percent or more African American? Did you consider that the city council, which voted 7-1 to call for his resignation, has a majority membership of African Americans? Did you consider that Wayne County Prosecutor Kim Worthy, who brought charges against the mayor is also Black?

Support for and against this mayor, because of his illegal actions, is not an urban versus suburban matter. One thing is certain, a solid majority of people of all color, are no longer willing to support Kwame Kilpatrick as an official representative of our city and region.

Shame on you for turning a criminal case into a racial one. It ain’t about the color of their skin, it’s about the content of their character.
