I lived in Detroit for eight years. My parents were married in Detroit. My maternal grandparents lived in Detroit for their entire adult lives. So, perhaps this negative shot at a once-proud city hits home more than most. Young brother pointed it out to us. What message does this send when a young brother or sister sees this type of nonsense? Personally, I'm very disappointed to know that this type of bigotry still thrives in America. Actually, it is depressing.
How should we respond to this type of thing? Should we simply ignore it once it has been pointed out to us?
