Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: He was just following Coleman Young's legacy.  What's the problem?  Was that wrong?  Should he not have done that?


The difference between Kwame and Coleman is Coleman was smart enough to not get his hands dirty. Kwame jizzed all over everything that came near him.

cman: Ahh, Detroit; the Baghdad of America

Funny thing is that Baghdad is actually safer

I dont know bout you folks, but I am starting to think that deploying the National Guard may be necessary to help get Detroit back on its feet.


Oh goody...we've reached the delusional and stupid "I can out hyperbole you" part of any "FARK Detroit thread."

For example, could you have had a 10,000 person 5K run in downtown Baghdad like was held in Detroit (Corktown) yesterday?  No, then STFU, you are an idiot.

Next will come the "it's because of racism" part of the thread...then followed by 500 memes and "nuke it from orbit" comments, then the next days' news.

Rinse and repeat FARK, rinse and repeat.

It hurts me, as a reasonably good Repub to mention two other Detroit mayors, Dennis Archer and Dave Bing. But ...

both of these men are honorable. Archer was pres of the Bar Association (the legal one) and did some cleaning up of the city. Former Piston Bing is also doing his best in a horrid situation.

Fair and balanced.

ZeroCorpse:

Say what you will about former Mayor Archer, but at least he wasn't a pimp who sold out his city and ethics in exchange for bling for himself and his family.

And we all know the reason he lost to Kwame in the first place -- he wasn't black enough.

hasty ambush: "disturbing tendency of black electorates to not elect the smartest and brightest, or even the cleverest."


Electorates in the crappier parts of Africa are well known for preferring the "Big Man" over someone honest, intelligent or well-intentioned. "He'll do, he's got a Mercedes" seems to be standard political thinking there.

Stone Meadow: barneyfifesbullet: Missing from the article, the word Democrat. That figures.

You forgot "black".

I mean, if you're going to go full derp you need to complete the picture.


Oh, so if it was a Republican politician that got the conviction the Farklibs would be all giddy, going on and on about the supposed typical Republican behavior, but since "Democrat' is mentioned, it's derp.

And then I remembered- in Farkland, Democrats are holier than thou, have never done a damn thing wrong in their lives, and are 100% truthful and on the up and up at all times, while Republicans are all corrupt, scum of the earth closet homophobic homosexual liars who all need to die in a fire.

So basically my first sentence was a waste of time.

This.  Detroit jokes / Heather Mills jokes:  always the same punchline.

But whatevs - It takes me 22 minutes to get to work and I can see Canada from my desk (...and a live bat exhibit Thursday at the RenCen's Wintergarden).  When it gets a little warmer, it'll be lunch on the RiverWalk.  I'd rather work down here than in an industrial park staring at black top and weeds all day.

HillshirefarmsGOMEAT: Why am I surprised at this? Ol racist Michigan never wanted this family in power in Detroit. They took Carolyn Cheeks-Kilpatrick through the ringer (his mom) when she was in Detroit politics and now her son is in office (was in office) and they come after him too. Really? 20 years in prison for getting yoga lessons, paying for tuition and going on vacation? Is this not the lives of half of middle-income America? And he had tailored suits! OH, the humanity! This was overkill to teach him a lesson. Don't be black and in power in Michigan.


...know how I know you have never watched the news in or around Detroit?

He's the mayor of a bankrupt, corrupt city.  Kind of goes without saying.  Any Republican voters fled a long time ago.

So, this thread happened:
http://www.fark.com/comments/6431470/70734706
To sum, a TFer posted a thread about saving up to buy a Real Doll, but now he found a woman and asked TFD whether or not he should still buy the doll.
Obviously, a fake thread.
Then the mods outed him and hilarity ensued.


Was't he also the same guy that made a submission about his balls getting wedged in his wooden chair and he got outed that time too?

Kwame Kilpatrick was a corrupt mayor of Detroit. He's a big, burly black man, but he's well-known for collecting Barbie dolls. He was using city funds to buy Barbies for his collection. So you can see how the public would pick this up and turn the Barbie dolls into Real dolls and next thing you know you've got yourself a meme.

It's pretty straightforward.
