A city cannot recover from its founding population being replaced (driven away) by an African population.
Simply put, collectively, individual Africans are a far more potent weapon in destroying a city (or civilization) than an atomic - nuclear - bomb. [Gov. Hogan announces $700M plan to target urban decay in Baltimore, Baltimore Sun, 1-5-16]:
Calling Baltimore's abandoned rowhouses "hotbeds for crime," Gov. Larry Hogan on Tuesday announced a nearly $700 million plan to tear down thousands of vacant buildings and replace them with new developments — a level of investment in Baltimore's poorest neighborhoods some say is unprecedented.
In Sandtown-Winchester, where Freddie Gray grew up, the governor joined Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in pledging $94 million over four years to demolish 4,000 vacant properties citywide and $600 million in subsidies to encourage redevelopment.
The money — most of which will come from the state — will allow a fourfold increase in the demolition of vacant city properties, followed by major new funding to rebuild.
"I don't recall there was ever an infusion of this magnitude," said M.J. "Jay" Brodie, who shepherded redevelopment in Baltimore under four mayors. "This is a great moment for the city. Take advantage of the moment. This is unlikely to happen again."
The Republican governor and Democratic mayor — who have publicly sparred at times — vowed to work together.
Hogan called Baltimore the "core" of Maryland.
"As I walked the streets of this city, people were repeatedly calling out and begging us to help do something about the blight that is all around them," Hogan said. "We have heard your calls for action... I'm a guy on a mission who wants to get things done."
Rawlings-Blake called the plan "demolition dollars on steroids." She thanked Hogan for partnering with the city.
"Despite what the media wants to say about the relationship between the city and state, we do get along," Rawlings-Blake said.
City officials estimate 20 blocks will be demolished in the first year. Demolished properties will first be turned into green spaces before they are offered to developers, including through the city's Vacants to Values program.If Baltimore is the core of Maryland, it's time any individual with a modicum of intelligence living in the state immediately leaves. Those rowhouses are abandoned because the white people who built them were driven away from Baltimore by black criminality.
Remember: we learned black people in Baltimore are mad that houses and streets don't magically repair themselves, which was one of the justifications for the rioting in April/early May of 2015.[Crowds Scatter as Baltimore Curfew Takes Hold, New York Times, 4-29-15]:
Near the burned-out CVS, Robert Wilson, a college student who went to high school in Baltimore, said: “With the riots, we’re not trying to act like animals or thugs.
"We’re just angry at the surroundings, like this is all that is given to us, and we’re tired of this, like nobody wants to wake up and see broken-down buildings. They take away the community centers, they take away our fathers, and now we have traffic lights that don’t work, we have houses that are crumbling, falling down.”Mr. Wilson said he had seen someone on television say, “This doesn’t feel like America."
“And I’m like, ‘This is America!’ ” he said. “ ‘They just don’t want you to know!’ ”
Were blacks to magically disappear from Baltimore, these 4,000 vacant properties (when they long ago were occupied - built - by whites, the community was thriving) would immediately see improvement with white people renovating them and showcasing the primary impediment to the resurrection of the city was always its black population.
It wasn't that long ago 65 percent black Baltimore, with a city dominated and led by democratically elected black officials, saw the Obama Administration invest $1.8 billion into the city. [Baltimore Received $1.8 Billion from Obama’s Stimulus Law: City burned despite ‘massive investment’ implemented by president, Washington Free Beacon, 5-4-15]
It also wasn't that long ago that 11.8 percent of the residents in Baltimore (74,000 of 622,793 citizens) signed up to be applicants on a Section 8 voucher wait list, of which a lottery system would select 25,000 applicants to get the chance to be one of the 6,000 to 9,000 chosen to get receive a voucher. That's right: between only 8 - 12 percent of those who signed up to be on the Section 8 voucher waiting list even will get subsided housing in Baltimore.

Folks, America is irredeemable.
The situation in 2016 Baltimore represents exactly what racist white people long ago tried to prevent when they worked to pass the first segregated housing laws in the history of the United States. Their foresight into the potential for civic responsibility the black population boasted was the exact reason restrictive covenants started in Baltimore around 1910.
And just over 100 years later, this is why in the nearly 100 percent black area of Baltimore that Freddie Gray (the drug dealer who had five outstanding charges against him at the time of his highly justified death) called "home," Democrat candidate for President, Sen. Bernie Sanders likened the city to a 'third world'.
But this is just the natural state of black people: they inherited a completely built city when white people fled to the suburbs, with a first-rate infrastructure, world-class residential housing, and the chance to prove those evil white people who the idea of racial equality wrong.
Instead, every fear whites had of black-rule has been proven correct in 65 percent black Baltimore.
We owe them all a huge apology.
