There is a report at the link below titled, Civil Rights and the Collapse of Birmingham, Ala.
Birmingham, Alabama is considered by many to be the birthplace of the civil rights movement.
Today, African-Americans in Birmingham benefit from a numerical majority in the population, corresponding majorities in government jobs, and political control of the city. But civil rights won´t address what ails the city now.
Birmingham Mayor William Bell is shown on left above. City Council President Roderick Royal is on right.
Birmingham is recognized as one of the most violent and poorly-run cities in the nation. The city runs a massive deficit, and is county seat of Jefferson County, which recently cut a deal with a European bank as part of the largest government bankruptcy in U.S. history.

One commenter said:
Blacks gain majority power, engage in the most outrageous racial discrimination, and quickly mire the city in corruption and mismanagement that for various reasons are excused by the voters, dooming them to more of the same.
Can´t say anything against these patterns, so at least until the money runs out, city after city falls in the name of diversity.
Birmingham was once a thriving healthy city with the nickname "The Magic City" but since the impact of the civil rights movement it is called "The Tragic City".
Reading the full report one gets a feeling that the problems in the city are breathtaking.
