Review of Detroit, Michigan

From A Black Woman’s Perspective...
Star Rating - 1/5/2021
Cold, unfriendly, envious people within the city limits. The unfriendliness can turn into aggression and sometimes even bullying. Crabs in a barrel reside here and the illiteracy rate is too high. One of the worst school systems in this country.
This is NOT the place to be a free spirit. There is no diversity. You must conform to a stereotype, or be prepared to be a target. The weather is nice from June - September, but the rest of the year is like a freezer.
There are various neighborhoods with only a few houses on the block and around various parts of the city, the grass looks as if it hasn’t been cut in years. Crime is high. Car insurance in this city itself is one of the highest in the country.
The dating scene here is terrible. Majority of the men here only have a highschool diploma, maybe an associate degree. They are of the hood caliber.
I gave an extra star because there is plenty of black culture here (with it being Motown) but it is simply not worth living in a slum.
This is my hometown, but I plan on relocating to Phoenix by the end of this year and don’t plan on returning for quite some time.
