I've spent the bulk of my adult life in the Cleveland, Ohio area, and I love it here and I've loved Cleveland with all its ups and downs, but things have changed dramatically since 1965 when the population in Cleveland was 1,875,000. As of July of 2022 it was 361,607. Whites make up only 38% of the population, blacks 47% and are still granted minority status, and has the power in Cleveland’s administration.
In 1965 illegitimacy in black America was 24% and 3% in white America. In 1990 it was 64 percent for blacks and 18 percent for whites. In black America it’s now around 70%, and around 30% for white America. That's an obscene voluntary abandonment of men to their responsibilities, and a unbelievable and active acceptance by the women. That’s massively destructive, and that destructiveness is spreading. That’s an abandonment of all the foundational values that create stable societies.
While there’s been efforts to restore Cleveland's neighborhoods, that required tearing down entire sections of the city to put up new buildings. As of right now, entire sections of Cleveland are either vacant lots with everything torn down, or have blocks of empty buildings, businesses and homes, that are rat infested holes surrounded by slums. And surrounding suburbs are equally impacted by all this, such as East Cleveland, which is a disaster.
Driving down Euclid Avenue, Cleveland's main street, once known as "Millionaires' Row", is deceptive. Go a few blocks to the left or right, and reality sets in.
How can you revive any major city if the inhabitants live in a culture that’s undisciplined, irresponsible, refuse to be educated, and violent? One in which a huge percentage of the inhabitants of the city think that’s just fine and dandy.
I don't think that's possible because they've abandoned all the Judaic/Christian values that make a society stable. If there is no stable moral foundation for a society, there is no stability, and then society becomes a mob.
The worst mayors in the nation? In 2021 Daniel Greenfield listed 14 of them, and they were all black, and/or far left lunatics, but they were all Democrats, and each and everyone of of them were race baiting hustlers shouting America is institutionally racist, among other things, but clearly they all hate America and are destroying the cities they lead, or led.

We all know Lori Lightfoot as mayor of Chicago is gone (All due to racism, homophobia, and misogyny and her incompetence had nothing to do with it) and her replacement is even nuttier. Will he fix Chicago's downward spiral?
So, I guess the answer to my question is, "no".
