Detroit is also known as "Hockeytown" due to the [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague Detroit Red Wings]] being a perennial [[UsefulNotes/TheStanleyCup Stanley Cup]] contender. Other, less flattering nicknames include "Murder City" and variations on such, as Detroit has one of the least-flattering public images of any major city in the country. The decline of the American auto industry in the [[TheSeventies 1970s]], combined with simmering racial, economic, and labor tensions, have made it the poster child for, and butt of many jokes about, [[WretchedHive urban decay and inner-city squalor]] for much of America. For decades, mentions of Detroit in the national media and pop culture have typically referred to it as a PlaceWorseThanDeath, and the crumbling ruins of some of its more destitute neighborhoods have honestly been described as looking [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]]. This tends to seriously annoy Detroiters, who feel that the city's bad reputation is making it harder to revitalize. They also feel that many of the jokes are tired, clichéd, and lazy. The city filed for bankruptcy in 2013, becoming the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. Since the bankruptcy, the city's finances are much more stable, and there are a number of projects for growth across the city (especially in Downtown and Midtown). That being said, city redevelopment can be a slow process, as the experiences of many other cities in the U.S. can tell.

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 - and the world's biggest Iraqi Catholic population outside Iraq, centered in the northeast exurbs of Utica and Shelby Township, where they get along rather interestingly with the existing predominance of Albanians and Macedonians). 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, Indian American, and Asian American upper-middle-class in the northwestern suburbs/exurbs and the Pointes just east of the city proper. The Metro Detroit area is [[UrbanSegregation one of the most racially segregated in the nation]].
