Chicago is one of the most diverse cities in the Unites States. You can meet people from various cultures- but you have to know where to find them. Although Chicago is ethnically diverse, it is also very segregated. Communities tend to be ethnically divided and there are boundaries that isolate them from other groups. Due to this structure, I grew up in Logan Square exposed only to hispanic culture and formed a sense of identity that reflects my community's values and morals.
In the 1960’s, Detroit was the fourth wealthiest city in the United States. However, on July 18, 2013, Detroit became the largest city to file for chapter 9 bankruptcy. This historical booming “arsenal city for democracy” has transformed into “empty apartment buildings, factories consumed the landscape and vacant homes”. Detroit’s census data has shown that twenty-five percent of the population has declined over the last decade. (Moreland, James. "Detroit Is an Example of Everything That Is Wrong with Our Nation." N.p., 23 Aug. 2015. Web.)

The rise of Detroit was caused by the economic boom the auto industry brought to the city during the early 1900’s.

This was the beginning of the fall of Detroit.
As I mentioned before the direct correlation between Clayton and Jonno is almost identical. They shared minuscule moments in which they construct small bonds which helps express my argument as they both strive for the same outcome to become a viral success and attract an audience. With their each of their unique and individual art form we see Clayton and Jonno trying to invoke the brokenness of Detroit through their work of art as stated in this quote “Against the decaying backdrop of present-day Detroit, a series of horrific crimes appear to be the work of a twisted serial killer. But layered onto the story is a cynical look at the future of journalism and a big dollop of the supernatural.” This quote also directly correlates my topic on
The Detroit Race Riot of June-July 1943 always had the question mark as to what the cause was for the riots. It has also been known as the “biggest and bloodiest race riots in the history of the United States” of America. A review that was completed by Welfred Holmes reveals some information from the book with the title: The Detroit Race Riot: A Study in Violence by Robert Shogan, and Tom Craig. The information that came to the fore was that the book explained the build-up to the riots as it occurred at least one year before the event. It was revealed that the morale of the Black people (Negroes as the book calls them) was very low. It was so low that it came to the point of not being concerned for their lives when it came to rioting. It

Throughout this weeks reading on Chapter 4, we focus in on the Progressive Era and the establishment of urban America. The industrial revolution was at its peak and the United States was developing rapidly. Immigration, manufacturing output, and urban development grew faster than any other time in the nation’s history. Not only that, but scientific developments changed lives and revolutionary theories challenged traditional beliefs. As Rury suggests, “ . . . it is probably safe to say that there was a greater degree of social change at the point than any other, simply because of the magnitude of economic expansion an population movement” (Rury 136). It was a time of globalization, when there was movement around the world on an unprecedented scale. Even when compared to
These racially motivated police brutality issues are known to happen all across the country in places like Michigan to places like Idaho. On July 27, 1919, an African-American teenager drowned in Lake Michigan after being stoned by a group of white teenagers. The combination of his death and the police’s refusal to arrest a white man who saw this event occur and did nothing is what caused The Chicago Race Riot. When the riots ended on August 3rd, 15 whites and 23 blacks were killed and an additional 500+ people were injured. Many upper class white families were left homeless after their homes were torched in the riots. These deaths, injuries and loss of property were a result of a racial attack on youth and the lack of concern from local police. This may not have been a direct murder from police, but it is an example of how the lack of proper policing did cause terror in Chicago nearly 100 years ago.

A world where to be a man you have to be able to walk the land. A world where ‘bitch’ is a household word. A world where good men have to sleep with one eye open all the time. A world where you’re born with a man-made disease called ‘color’. A world where good men die first. A world that society neglects and ignores a ghetto child’s cries.
