Farley comments on "black flight" from Detroit and other rust belt cities

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"'Black flight' in America's Rust Belt" - Al Jazeera. 07/09/2012.

In this video, Reynolds Farley comments on the loss of population in Detroit, as well as other predominantly black, Rust Belt manufacturing cities such as Cleveland and Buffalo. "We are still a manufacturing nation," says Farley. "But we use relatively few workers to produce products anymore." As middle-class residents of these areas are leaving for the suburbs, the inner cities cities are left with a poorer, less educated population, he says.
