* Frequent death threat recipient Creator/MichaelMoore isn't from Detroit. He's from Davison, a suburb of Flint, which is 66 miles from Detroit. It's only a part of the Motor City if you inflate Metro Detroit or use "Detroit" as a metonym for the auto industry. To his credit, Moore never claimed to be from Detroit; he claimed to be from Flint. Considering that hardly anyone knows about Flint, you can sort of give him a pass.

The Metro Detroit area is home to a myriad of cultures and ethnicities, including one of the largest Arab populations in North America, centered in Dearborn (with a sizable [[UsefulNotes/{{Lebanon}} Lebanese]] outpost in West Bloomfield -- where they get along rather interestingly with the large Jewish population). It is also very economically and racially-segregated, with poorer minorities living in the city, the white working-class in the eastern suburbs, and the predominantly white and Asian American upper-middle-class in the western suburbs, the Pointes just east of Detroit, and increasingly, the far northern exurbs. The Metro Detroit area is [[UrbanSegregation one of the most racially segregated in the nation]].

* ''Film/ItFollows'': the protagonists live in the well-to-do suburbs, and venture into the decrepit inner city for a number of scenes. Yara remarks about the racial and economic divide, reminiscing on how, when she was younger, her parents wouldn't let her travel south of 8 Mile Road, even to go to the state fair.
