A tale of two cities

For some time now a set of pictures have been circulating via email which purport to compare Hiroshima today with Detroit today. The pictures of the Japanese city are actually of Yokohama, so saying that they are of Hiroshima is gilding the lily a bit. Yokohama is the port city of Tokyo so was also devastatingly bombed, albeit not with nuclear weapons. I guess pictures of devastated Hiroshima were more readily available than pictures of devastated Yokohama.

But the contrast between the terrible deterioration of a black-run city and the great progress of a Japanese city is certainly instructive. See here or here for the pictures. Race has nothing to do with it, of course.

  1. The comparison of the two cities is apples and oranges. Hiroshima was destroyed by the world’s first fission bomb and Detroit was destroyed by decades of leftist incompetence. One is the emblem of aggression and one is the emblem of failed social policy by a failed system of government. Where the two cities are different is that Hiroshima recovered from a nuclear blast. Detroit has suffered decades of corruption, mismanagement, and failed social policy and no end is in sight for the plight of its citizens. The comparison of the two does not work, unless you are comparing leftist policy to the results of aggression and then it works rather well.
