I recently found some very interesting information. One of the whitest cities in America is next to one of the blackest cities in America. How do they compare? Livonia Michigan is about 13 miles from the center of Detroit, MI, (and 2 miles from the western limits of detroit) Livonia - 95.45% white Detroit - 81.6% black Livonia Median family income = $83,000 Detroit Median family income = $33,000 Living below the poverty line Livonia 2% Detroit 21% Livonia population 100,000 Detroit population 700,000 violent crime(murder, robbery, rape, ect) Detroit 338% higher than the national average Livonia less than 1/3rd the national average Heres where it gets interesting...home prices are not that much different. Livonia median home price $102,000 Detroit median home price $70,000 So how can two cities so close be so different? Only one answer....one is full of whites and one is full of blacks. So the question is...should white separete themselves from blacks, or should they integrate in the hopes that it will improve black communities?
