It's not exactly a new passion in America either.

Pet Shop Boys wrote a song about it, 30 years ago.


Goddamnit, now it's stuck in my head.

LeilaK: It's obvious really. They just want to live like common people. They want to do whatever common people do. They want to sleep with the common people...like you. 'Cause they think that poor is cool.

Detroit is no favela or shanty town.

But Detroit is surprisingly beautiful, like many of these impoverished areas.

I'm all for educational tourism. You just have to try to avoid exploitation. It's a balancing act. Riding a tour bus thru the township may not teach you anything...

Most all tourism has some embarrassingly awkward moments.

Tiorted: the feeling one experiences after watching a major American city descend into dystopic bankruptcy while Boeing, AIPAC, and both major political parties seek to attack Syria.

Slum tourism?  So they teach Detroiters how to fish for life?
