Skip to comments.Data: 48 of America’s 50 Largest Cities Hit By Black Lives Matter Riots

New data from Princeton University shows that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States.
The study found:
In more than 93% of all demonstrations connected to the movement, demonstrators have not engaged in violence or destructive activity. Peaceful protests are reported in over 2,400 distinct locations around the country. Violent demonstrations, meanwhile, have been limited to fewer than 220 locations under 10% of the areas that experienced peaceful protests.Mainstream media seized on the data last week to argue that the Trump narrative of violent demonstrations was false. The study itself speculated that public perceptions of riots were skewed by political orientation and biased media framing and disproportionate coverage of violent demonstrations.
However, public perceptions may simply have reflected the wide geographic distribution of the violence.
The Princeton data set shows that nearly every major city in the United States experienced riots from late May to the end of August even under the narrow definition that the study used to classify riots (as separate from events described as police violence against protesters).
The only exceptions within the top 50 cities by population were Fresno, California, and Mesa, Arizona.
Thus in the public imagination, the proportion that matters most may not be the 7% of protests that were violent, but the 96% of major urban areas that experienced rioting.
Within the largest 100 cities by population, 74 experienced riots.

Even small communities like Kenosha, Wisconsin and Rochester, New York are not immune to riots. Which 'narrative' will stick to voters' minds?
That poll today said suburban types felt no particular fear that the BLM would bother them in their areas.
Fools, Idiots. Scumbags.
I was born in this country. It is my country.
I will not allow you to take America away.
Get off my lawn.
Fresno is the home of this website no?
Right on, brother!!!
Well, I don’t see any rioting going on in Luckenbach, Texas.
BLM is staging in Shelton, WA just down the road from us (okay- 40mi but it’s where we shop at Walmart). We’re a small town, and ready; they made drive in but they’ll be walking or being carried out. Just sayin’
It's a glorious thing when the city officials, police, vets, store owners and citizens are all on the same page!
The ANTIFA/BLM zombies need to be met with an overwhelming show of force. I doubt if they will show up out where Im at, but if they ever do, just the sound of a 12 gauge will send them squealing or rolling into their fetal positions! LOL!
Can’t speak for Fresno. However, I have a cousin in Mesa, AZ. One would not want to break in to his home. Antifa or otherwise....
Less peaceful protests and more Beer Hall Putsch.
we know a few smaller town where the DemoNaziCommie SorozNazi storm troopers tried to riot but the police were alert and lined the streets. the Burn Loot and Mayhem gangsters showed up (many of them come in paid charter buses with identical printed signs all ready to go, same signs in all 4 towns incidentally... these are very well- “organized riots”) but the cops made themselves nice and visible and so the gangs just walked a couple blocks and dissipated back onto their charter buses for their rides home
Oh, I see. It’s okay to burn, loot, and murder as long as it’s just a little over 200 cities.
heading....”50 Largest Cities... ‘HIT’... By Black Lives Matter Riots”...
Meet Joe Biden Supporters right here
Do we move to Mesa or Fresno?
Nov 9-10, 1938, Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass), Nazis torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools, businesses & killed 100 Jews.
Very sobering parallels with our riots. Target today is not “Jews”, but are “white people” & conservatives
We have played cowboys and Indians but we have not played patriots and ah.... ah.... anarchists yet.
Lasted just long enough to count as a riot for this Princeton study?
That's all the cover the enemedia needs to say "See! See!! See!!! Riots are happening everywhere! Orange Man Bad is lying! It isn't just in Democrat strongholds!"
