Great, now check for Detroit. You will see it take a quick nose dive. In the last decade they have went through one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.

Let me help you out...
Per capita money income in past 12 months (2013 dollars), 2009-2013 $14,870
Median household income definition and source info Median household income, 2009-2013 $26,325Census - Detroit
per capita income is a useless figure in my view. but it's particularly useless in a place like detroit where there are so many ppl who either don't work, or are underemployed.
median household income is useless for the same reason, we're talking about one guy. a black male who works full time year round. so we should only be taking into account black males who work full time year round when looking for a baseline. when we do this, we find that he is well below median income for his group.
you can go to the US census site and see for yourself, i already gave you the link, all you have to do is input detroit in the geographies tab. this isn't very complicated.
