Blacks Leaving Detroit, but Whites are Moving Back

Whites are moving back into Detroit as blacks leave

Whites are moving back to the American city that came to epitomize White flight, even as Blacks continue to leave for the suburbs and the city’s overall population shrinks.

Detroit is the latest major city to see an influx of Whites who may not find the suburbs as alluring as their parents and grandparents did in the last half of the 20th century. Unlike New York, San Francisco and many other cities that have seen the demographic shift, though, it’s cheap housing and incentive programs that are partly fueling the regrowth of the Motor City’s White population.
