Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America [all 25 are "black" or "mostly black"
multiple sources

http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/neighborhoods/crime-rates/25-most-dangerous-neighborhoods/

Even the most dangerous cities in America can have relatively safe neighborhoods, as there is more variation in crime within most cities than between cities. But using exclusive data developed by NeighborhoodScout, and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, we here report those specific neighborhoods in America that have the highest predicted rates of violent crime per 1,000 neighborhood residents of all. Violent crimes include murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. These neighborhoods are the epicenters of violence in America, where social issues are likely to ignite into violence and spread. See our FAQ on how we rank the most dangerous neighborhoods

Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation's population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it's 22 times that of whites. I'd like for the president, the civil rights establishment, white liberals and the news media, who spent massive resources protesting the George Zimmerman trial's verdict, to tell the nation whether they believe that the major murder problem blacks face is murder by whites. There are no such protests against the thousands of black murders.

There's an organization called NeighborhoodScout. Using 2011 population data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2011 crime statistics from the FBI and information from 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in the country, it came up with a report titled "Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America." (http://tinyurl.com/cdqrev4) They include neighborhoods in Detroit, Chicago, Houston, St. Louis and other major cities. What's common to all 25 neighborhoods is that their makeup is described as "Black" or "Mostly Black." The high crime rates have several outcomes that are not in the best interests of the overwhelmingly law-abiding people in these neighborhoods. There can't be much economic development. Property has a lower value, but worst of all, people can't live with the kind of personal security that most Americans enjoy.

Disgustingly, black politicians, civil rights leaders, liberals and the president are talking nonsense about "having a conversation about race." That's beyond useless. Tell me how a conversation with white people is going to stop black predators from preying on blacks. How is such a conversation going to eliminate the 75 percent illegitimacy rate? What will such a conversation do about the breakdown of the black family (though "breakdown" is not the correct word, as the family doesn't form in the first place)? Only black people can solve our problems.

This is a planned result. I have no idea why the elite and government want to keep an entire race of people down and enslaved, but they do. There is a class of whites who should be part of this conversation - those who created this system, testifying as they appear in court on charges of corruption and crimes against humanity. They flat out f’d up our cities.

Go ahead and walk through one of those neighborhoods and see if you get profiled and then attacked for being white and in the wrong neighborhood.

Both represented by Sheila Jackson Lee. No wonder she wants to be head of Homeland Security.

“WTH? I was hoping my city of birth would make it. (Philly)”
__________________________________________
My city of birth, Memphis, made it two- three times, when you include West Memphis, over the river.
It use to be a great city when it was only 40% black.
Now it is 60% and going down the tubes. As I say, it is “gone with the wind”.
I think the blacks now control all of the government.

I was in the southern Chattanooga suburbs of Rossville and Fort Oglethorpe last week, coming back from visiting the Chickamauga National Battlefield, when I waltzed right into the middle of a bad situation.

I was on US-27, about 1/2 mile from the interstate, in a pretty rough part of town, when I pulled up to a red light behind a guy on a Harley chopper. There was an old, shut down gas station on the corner, with a couple of black guys sitting out front, drinking beer. Suddenly the guy on the bike started cussing up a storm at the guys (if cussing was an Olympic event, he'd have gotten the gold) and suddenly ten more black guys came out of the building.

One of the beer drinkers threw his bottle at the biker, who gunned his engine and shot through the red light, leaving me with twelve rather ticked off black dudes staring at me. I very calmly reached over, made sure my doors were locked, then dropped my hand down to where my 1911 was sitting, and waited for them to make the first move.

After a few seconds of glaring at me, they returned to their beers. The light turned green and I got the heck out of Dodge.

Not exactly how I wanted to spend my vacation; but it will definitely be one I'll remember for many years to come.

Is it only 60%? I thought for sure it was higher- even when I lived there in the mid-90’s. What a depressing place it was. I cried my first week there.

you have to be somewhat north of 38th street....then the neighborhood os great (Governors house is somewhere in the area) but south of that the area is a real zoo. The people in those areas just won't wake up....they could solve their own problems and just won't do it.....pathetic

That is a great story. Unfortunately that situation happens all too often. I had my S&W Model 64 .38 special with me that day. Next time I head toward Tulsa I am taking my S&W 4006 with two extra magazines. North Tulsa is a nasty area. Believe it or not I feel safer around the Monguls and the Rogues than I do the average north Tulsan.
