The creative economy (artists, entrepreneurs, craft makers, etc.) often flock to communities where it’s openly embraced and where the cost of living/doing business is low. It’s what happened in Portland, Austin, and many other cities around the country. It’s what’s happening in Detroit and Flint as well. It’s super cheap to Nice Strong Juneteenth 1865 Shirt live here and there’s a bunch of fun stuff to do if you’re interested/aware of that community. Admittedly I have not been to Flint in years but I have seen what’s going on with the influx of artists on Detroit and, in my opinion, it is dwarfed by what is going on over on the West side of the state. Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo have a much more noticeable artistic presence in communities a fifth the six of Detroit. Such has been my experience, anyway.

Why is it that I can’t hold both the opinion that Flint is not pretty, but still care about it as a community? I feel the same Nice Strong Juneteenth 1865 Shirt way about Detroit but still, care about its outcome. I also recognize that Flint, Detroit, and every city in Michigan needs to be successful for our state to be successful. Notice you only thought to mention Flint and Detroit, maybe you should remember other cities that have also suffered: Pontiac (which I feel strongly about, but still recognize the blight, and will be the first to admit), Saginaw, Benton Harbor, Muskegon, and many more. They all have amazing things as well, despite their blight, but they are blighted and damaged. When we get so myopic that we only defend what is closest, we sacrifice too much.

As for context, not only as of the son of a GM autoworker but as someone who lived in Holly during the late ’70s and early ’80s, I understand better than most. I watched about two dozen kids in my school, including my best friend at the time, leave the district because their parents lost their jobs in Flint. I watched as Auto World opened, just to close in a few years. As Flint, particularly Genesee Valley Mall, was the place my family shopped, I watched the stores and businesses close. I watched as Nice Strong Juneteenth 1865 Shirt things became more and more run down. When I ran the Crim 10 miler for over a decade, I got to see the damage to the neighborhoods close up. So I get the context, possibly better than you depending on your age. Why, because I saw it crumble as a young man.
