It’s Really Obvious, So Why Aren’t Liberals Talking about the 1 Thing America’s 10 Most Violent Cities Have in Common?

crime scene

The list of America’s top 10 most violent cities was recently released. Even though the liberal news outlet CNN created the report, there is still one thing they can’t hide no matter how hard they try. See if you can spot it.

Here’s the list of cities:

1. Camden, New Jersey

2. Flint, Michigan

3. Detroit, Michigan

4. Oakland, California

5. St. Louis, Missouri

6. Cleveland, Ohio

7. Gary, Indiana

8. Newark, New Jersey

9. Bridgeport, Connecticut

10. Birmingham, Alabama

Now before you go any further, go ahead and take a guess about what all these states share in common.

You know where this is going…

Every single city is led by a Democrat mayor (or by a mayor with Democrat affiliations). Check it out for yourself.

1. Mayor of Camden — Dana Redd — Democrat

2. Mayor of Flint — Dayne Walling — Nonpartisan, formerly worked for U.S. Rep Dale Kildee, a Democrat

3. Mayor of Detroit — Dave Bing — Democrat

4. Mayor of Oakland — Jean Quan — Democrat

5. Mayor of St. Louis — Francis Slay — Democrat

6. Mayor of Cleveland — Frank Jackson — Democrat

7. Mayor of Gary — Karen Freeman-Wilson — Democrat

8. Mayor of Newark — Ras Baraka — Democrat

9. Mayor of Bridgeport — Bill Finch — Democrat

10. Mayor of Birmingham — William A. Bell — Democrat

It’s really not that surprising.

Just take a look at the president who’s running this country into the ground and you can see Democrats don’t make good leaders. And with their gung-ho agendas to ban the ownership of weapons, the sale of weapons, and things that even look like weapons — you can see why this list shakes out like it does.

It’s not like this statement is just one based on opinion.

These are cold hard facts.

Unfortunately, statistics like these don’t deter liberals in any way. You can’t stop stupid.

Right now anti-gun liberals are attempting to pass more laws to limit your rights as a gun owner.

They’re coming for your guns. But there’s a possibility that even if they get their way, you can still own a gun, legally!

    The mayors may be creating poverty in their cities, but it’s the fatherless children who are committing the crime and violence. These Democrat/Progressives have provided welfare programs, but only fatherless families are eligible. The destruction of the family and resulting detriment to society are mainstays of the Progressive agenda to destroy the economy, the society, the military, and eventually, the nation. The mayors may be greedy, but they’re puppets of those whose aim is revolution.

    • gunnygil

      And one of the reason the families are fatherless is the “IN YOUR FACE” attitudes of so many of the mothers of those families. That is exactly where the kids learn their violent tendencies. Just watch the protest in these neighborhoods and the girls beating down each other in schools

      • Wumingren

        Indeed, no wonder so many black men don’t marry their women. I’ve seen some really loud, angry, in-your-face black women, and I sure wouldn’t want to be married a woman like that.

        • Awake

          I have heard a black man explain that is why he liked white women.

        • Oreisha

          Also, some black men would marry, but the women would lose her welfare if there was a man in the house. So they just keep having kids to get the welfare, and no one has to take any respoisibility.

          • 454 casull

            Yeah they are so irresponsible they should all be neutured so all these little kids don’t turn into thugs by necessity .

        • 454 casull

          The black guys go after the white women cuz they have jobs too and are not sucking on the welfare teet like so many black biatches.

        The old adage, “FOLLOW THE MONEY” come into play here. The mother’s, of course, get 40% of the fathers pay in child support, and the feminists profit from the power. The lawyers profit from the conflict, and the state is paid tens or hundreds of millions of dollars yearly by the feds. The judges profit from payments they receive from the child support collection agencies. The psychiatrists profit from parental evaluations they do at the request of the courts. Supervised visitation centers profit from all the fathers sent their way by domestic violence advocates and counselors who only counsel the mothers. Read Dr. Stephen Baskerville’s book, “TAKEN INTO CUSTODY”.

        • vkbmvoter

          There is some truth to what you say, BUT,
          You missed one major problem. These young men like sex, but have no responsibility to their girlfriend and most
          certainly not to the child! They came from a father who walked away from them and blamed the mother for the child.
          .The cycle. continues over and over. Until there is a willingness to raise both male and female children to respect and
          and understand what sex is, it will never end. Moms, get them in church early!
          Plus, this country has started to reward bad behavior. Have a baby out of wedlock
          you can get free medical, wick to feed the baby, food stamps, all but free housing and a monthly check! Have another one, double it! Stay home, watch tv, don’t take care of the kids. When they get tired of kids, leave or neglect them, State steps in puts them in foster care, unless the grandmother takes them, along with the monthly checks or auntie. Lets not forget
          unwed mom gets a free education! Daddy gets to runaround making more babies, because he has no consequences for his
          behavior. We raise his off spring, he parties, and becomes the deadbeat he is destined to be.

          • al sowins

            Respectfully, no one is destined to become a deadbeat. Deadbeat is a choice, made many times over. God wants all men to be saved, ITim.2.3-4. Few will be, Mt.7.13-14. Because most will not live His way, the New Testament way.

    • DAY8293A

      When the Dummy rat turds and Johnson decided to take our social security out of the SSA trust fund, and start buying minority votes with our SSA, and pay Welfare Hos to download Welfare Rats…. that was the beginning of the end of this country. The whole single mom garbage started then, and began the demise of the family

      • al sowins

        In my experience it began with the passage of the Social Security Act, under FDR, in 1935.All handouts stem from that reprehensible Act.There are many families that have never had a working member since that time. They tend to reproduce about every fifteen years, so, lets see, that’s about 5 0r 6 generations of Tincuppers. Sooner or later the spigot must be turned off and then we will have massive riots in the streets and civil war. The vast majority of the rioters will be minorities and they will be slaughtered.The politicians who constructed and maintained this corrupt system will be in Hell and won’t care; but those of us who survive will weep for the lost while we begin the herculean labor of cleaning our own stygian stalls.

        • DAY8293A

          Yes, SSA did get the ball rolling, but at least there was a plan to pay into a ”SSA trust fund” that the dummy rat turds robbed to start the totally ”free” handouts under Johnson and his ”great society” scam… welfare and food stamps. None of that is ever paid into by the recipients specifically for the ”handouts”. SSA does collect funds specifically for it. Lumping it into the same category as those welfare hos and rats trough, is unfair.

          • al sowins

            We agree that there certainly is a division between programs funded by productive individuals and Big Governments handouts of public funds. What both share in common, I believe, is that there is no constitutional authority for either. In a way, SS opened the door for LBJ’s awful Tincupper handouts. When we subsidize sloth, fornication, irresponsibility, greed, we promote those vices, and destroy the moral fabric of our once great nation. Except in rare cases the family or the church can take care of those unable to provide for themselves; and it is their duty to do so.Charity at the government level should probably be about one percent of what it currently is. “He who will not work; let him not eat.” is a divine injunction and we must follow it.

          • Bama Bill

            Isn’t it true that each time the SS fund was “Raided”, a pres(D) signed the bill? I want the money back! Take it from those thieves “Lifetime Pensions”! They know seniors won’t vote for them, so they steal from us! And the (R)’s let them get away with it! IF we steal anything, even if we honestly didn’t mean to, like being stupid and putting something in our pocket, and forgetting it when we checkout, it is “Off to jail”! Let el presidente give our SS to illegals, and not a word is said! NUTS!

          • al sowins

            Agreed! Our taxes and ss contributions have been used to buy the votes of the Tincuppers. Folks on welfare have better health insurance than we do, and we pay for their coverage! That is very wrong!

          • al sowins

            They use our taxes to buy the votes of Tincuppers.

      • Bama Bill

        My black friends tell their bros, “Hey I broke it off with “Her”, so go on and take a six pack and go git it on with her”. And when my neighbors white “Ho”, was kicked out, she came to my house and asked for a ride home. Said she would “Give me what I wanted” for a ride. I declined. Took her home to get her out of my place. She stopped to buy drugs, didn’t have enough money, tried to “Make a deal” with me. When I didn’t accept she bought her drugs, with her money and sex! Some “Lady”! But she still collects her $ and Section 8 from the taxpayers. We are “really getting screwed”!

        • DAY8293A

          I have even had a guy that was doing some odd jobs around my house try to offer me some food stamps for cash, while he was between regular jobs! The ”welfare/gimme ” programs are out of control!!! His girlfriend was supposed to be living with her parents, as she has some kind of mental ”disability”, and her parents keep and use her food stamps, even though she was staying with him!! The whole program needs to be shut down, especially paying welfare hos for having welfare rats! We really need orphanages again, for kids that only have a single mom that has more than one illegal/bastard child with no father and was never married, i.e., having them out of wedlock, and then lock the hos up for child abuse for bringing children into the world when they can’t take care of them!!!

      There’s the racist comment I was waiting for.

      • Oreisha

        Why are all FACTS considered racist???? Look in the World Almanac at the prison population—- almost 90% black—- and that WA isn’t racist, just states the facts. Keeping all of this “hush-hush” is racist.

        • James

          Lets look at the statistics, white folks use drugs at the same level as blacks folks but 93% of people in NJ prisons for low level drug offences are black. Not racists selective law enforcement just a pure accident.

          • James

            Here’s another stat for you based on the comments about black women and babies. Blacks represent 22% of the poor in the US but only get 14% of government benefits. Whites represent 42% of poor but somehow manage to get 69% of government benefits. Wonder why????

          • Alan Mills

            I do not buy into those stats.

          • CTH

            You just have to understand that liars make up their own stats. A common trait amongst democraps/socialists.

          • James

            Nothing like denial of facts to support your arguments.

          • Alan Mills

            Department of Commerce 8 July 2014

            Welfare recipients

            White, 38.8%
            Black,39.8%
            Hispanic, 15.7%
            Asian, 2.4%
            Other, 3.3%

          • James

            I think the numbers I quoted included all governmant benefits not just welfare. Stuff like food stamps, rental assisstance, disability etc.

          • Alan Mills

            james,
            I would assume that the total benefits would then be somewhere in between the numbers that we both have stated.

          • James

            You are probably right, the piece I read was not specific about what it included.

          • 1American1st

            Maybe you are missing the FACT that blacks only comprise 13% of the population but receive 39.9% of the Welfare. Do the math…

          • James

            Then I suggest you look on your own and see if someone has different numbers.

          • Alan Mills

            I did not say that I cared, I just do not believe them. You have your opinion and I have mine, as it should be.

          • James

            I agree we can have our own opinions. I am just more comfortable when it has a fact basis.

          • sandman

            That is because the benefits you mentioned in that case are earned! and would have been supported and paid into with a JOB! to begin with!

          • 1American1st

            I CALL BS! I don’t know a single white person on Welfare. As a matter of fact, I have NEVER known a white person on Welfare. I am in my 60s and have lived in 9 different places (in 4 states).

          • Oreisha

            It is used in the white community also. But the white people don’t seem to cause the problems with their use like the blacks do. They don’t go out in gangs and shoot each other, and rob, mug, and steal to feed their habit like the blacks. I worked in Psychiatry for years— and there is a big difference in the behavior of the ethnic groups.

          • Buckindaburg

            The gang shootings are not about feeding their habits. Rather, it is about territory being encroached upon. It’s been established that since more than 7 of 10 black babies are born out of wedlock, the young boys from those couplings, have no supervision and by the time they are 10 or 11, are earning money being runners for the drug pushers. They opt not to go to school because getting a high school diploma may get them a job flipping burgers….while being a mule for the local pusher, gets them a couple hundred a day. They soon graduate to being pushers themselves and are assigned or claim an area to do their work.When an outsider comes into their established customers…who don’t really care who supplies them…gunfire breaks out.
            I would venture to guess that 90% of the homicides are due to drug trafficking. There are many local politicians involved, so there is little heat put on the drug industry.
            That is one of the theories regarding legalizing drugs. If govt. controls the sale of same, it takes the market away from the street dealer. That may be true, but it’s difficult to imagine how this nation can be productive and function, if the entire society adopts an attitude that promotes getting high all the time.

          • Bama Bill

            Boy are you in for it! Only facts that say “Blacks are superior” are allowed! Successful people are of all colors. Even though I have found the orientals to be the least rude, and well educated, they are too self centered. I found they rarely stayed at a job for more than two years. Always looking for advancement. Successful people are not as likely to throw away their life for $20 worth of pot. I think those on welfare should be required to work on public projects like WPA. Sell the abandoned houses to a family for a dollar. BUT they have to improve it each year. This idea worked well in Toledo when I lived there, many homes were refurbished, and skilled volunteers helped with wiring, plumbing, etc. I say “Give them a hand up, not a handout!”.

          • CTH

            Most people who are as stupid as you seem to be try to hide their stupidity. And that is easy. Just keep your mouth shut, but real stupidity prevents that simple solution.

          • James

            I guess when someone states facts that don’t agree with your political beliefs that makes them stupid. Why comes up with any rational argument when you can cover your lack of information with name calling.

          • bobonitt

            it seems a person’s intellect is directly in proportion to how much they agree with you,racist,non-racist,mensa-member ,klanist,or black pantherfor either position to have merit you would have to factor in how many people were arrested by a different race officer.so if your in the ghetto by a street corner re-known for drug dealing done by locals,regardless of clients,and your arresting the source of sale at that level to graduate up the chain to bigger fish,picture yourself standing in montana and you hear hoof-beats behind you it’s probably safe to assume it’s cattle or horses and not zebras,or kudus.and since MC mac daddy TREVOR isn’t slinging from the suburban st.corner your gonna roll up on the black kid on the corner and start his endless ride trough the system and constantly refilling the prison demographic of black convicts which once entered into the system will contribute to the recidivism rate ,and who says perpetual motion is impossible it’s there in the legal system

          • 1American1st

            Perhaps 93% of the people in NJ are there because they commit crimes, not because they are black. Ever think of that?

        • James

          According to the numbers I’ve seen 60% of our prison & jail population is black and hispanic, the other 40% is white and other(Asian, Native American). So claiming 90% are black is a bit of a stretch since the real number is 39.4%.

          • Bama Bill

            Alabama has a ratio of 3.5 blacks to each white prisoner. So over 77% are blacks, here in Alabama. The federal rate is 6.5 black to one white, or about 85% black, this is in federal prisons only, not jails and state prisons. So you can get many different “Stats”, but I have only checked on “Federal prisons”.

          • James

            My numbers are national and include both jails and prisons. I expect that individuals states and counties will not match that number. I know in NJ blacks are more than the 39.4% number that I quoted.

      Yes they are going to hell. Socialist mayor seduces underage male, public looks the other way. Mayor wants to ban cars from the city and cut auto/truck travel across the bridge to Washington in deference to bicycles. Opposition to road expansion to meet population needs. Mayor creates enlarged, dangerous group bike zones at intersections. Downtown denizens transfixed (worst I’ve seen) to smartphones while crossing intersections. Only 6% black people, but plenty of white retro hippies with dirty hair, dirty neighborhoods, strange body piercings, and no desire to do much beyond drugs. Portland-led business taxes and fee increases during the recession, employers leaving the state. A combination of regulations, transportation options, workforce characteristics, and “keep Portland weird” attitude has made it difficult to attract business. They do attract plenty of environmentally extreme Californian transplants. Congressman David Wu making dozens of unwanted sexual advances on staff before voters would finally act. Shovel ready stimulus money going to bogus “green” companies. Timber industry in shambles due to environmental lobby. Looming debt (pension related) that Portland doesn’t want to talk about (liberals never let debt bother them). Unsustainable PERS system. Draconian land-use laws for farms, ranches, and individuals. Friendly to soccer, unfriendly to major league baseball, NFL.

    Where is Chicago?!? It should be on the list!

    • Kenny Coffman

      I really thought that Chicago would be first on the list and that the common theme was that all of the cities were “gun-free,” or whatever the idiotic correct name it is for such foolishness. Whatever, all Democratic leadership for the total demise of anything that resembles intelligence in the government of these cities isn’t a surprise. Dems all want totally helpless “victims” for citizens to rule over anyway. “Gun-free zones” = Democratic leadership. Way to go bozos.

      • 1American1st

        I actually found out WHY Sh*tcago doesn’t show up on the top tier of “Most Violent Cities”. They use “percentages” aka “rates”. Because Chicago has such a large population the “percentage” of rapes, robberies and especially murders, is small compared to the population. In other words, 400 to 500 murders a year is par for the course for them.

        The following ISN’T where I found out about the difference between “rates” or “percentages” and actual statistics, but it is a good read. It gives actual numbers of murders in 2013. Brings it back into prespective.
        ~~~~~
        FOR 2013:
        According to year-end data released by police departments around the country, Chicago still leads the country in homicides with 415, but that number declined 18% from 2012 and is the fewest since 1965. Crime has been a problem in pockets of the city’s South Side and West Side neighborhoods for years. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hired a new superintendent of police soon after he was elected to shift the department’s strategy in an attempt to prevent future crimes. But while the murder rate declined to roughly 43 homicides per 100,000 residents (down from 50 in 2012), the number of murders in Chicago still outpaced every other major metropolis in the U.S.

        http://nation.time.com/2014/01/02/murders-in-u-s-cities-again-at-record-lows/

        ~~~~~
        BTW – We don’t have as many murders in our entire state as Chicago has in their city.

    Ten Dem-ole-rats all wanting more gun control. Yes makes sense. Those young women don’t need the right to defend themselves.. The cops will be there in 30 minutes.

  • Buckindaburg

    When the government promotes the incentive to have children and go on welfare…then strives to increase the amount of benefits per child, the message is quite clear. Young, uneducated black girls think that getting 1,000.00 per month per child will entitle them to 4,000 for 4 children. That sounds like a great deal of money to a 15 or 16 year old girl or boy.
    The cost of raising children however, far outweighs the government benefit. The most insidious part of this arrangement is that even if the girl has four children by the time she is 22…she has had little or no real assistance in creating structure to those children’s lives. She is oblivious to that need, because she had never had any in her own.
    It’s pretty easy to see where this is going. If she has girl children, they will do as she did. She will become the grand mother that helps her daughter raise those children…again, bereft of discipline and structure. If her grand babies are boys, they will migrate into neighborhood gangs and get involved in petty theft and/or drugs. Nothing but violence will be the result of that life style.
    So…the real answer is that young black girls should be encouraged not to get pregnant outside of marriage. At present, 72% of black children are born out of wedlock. The beat goes on.
    Why does the govt. promote such behavior? Simple….it’s very easy to control those under developed minds by simply threatening to cut off the amount of benefits unless the recipient cooperates and does what he/she is told.

    • James

      All of you folks who think welfare is such a great deal ought to try living on it for a month.

      • Buckindaburg

        James, don’t misconstrue my comments regarding welfare and suggest that I meant it is a good deal. But….when a child is born into a welfare family, that child will view how the family lives, all through his/her formative years. To that child, living this way seems very normal and thus, becomes conditioned to expect that little will change. In all too many cases, it does not.
        Perhaps those that take govt. jobs that oversee the distribution of welfare monies, should be more concerned about guiding those children to some island of hope.
        The social problems that plague this nation, cannot be fixed by throwing money at them. If that worked, it would be relatively simple to take care of things. But, you cannot name one problem that govt. money fixed. Rather, it has been expanded. And, if something ever did get fixed…has the federal govt. stopped funding it?
        This is one of the dangers that our founders saw in allowing the federal…or statist-minded politicians…gain too much power and why there was originally, a system of checks and balances. That system was greatly wounded by passage of the 17th amendment to the constitution. It took too much power away from the states and gave that power to the federals.

      Two-thirds of the gun deaths in the USA are suicides. If you actually want to reduce gun deaths, then that’s the biggest failure that has to be addressed. People who discard those who are hurting the most are hardly eligible for “sainthood.”

      • Alan Mills

        No buying 2/3 of gun deaths are suicide.

        • Ponyhome

          Look it up for yourself. Even the NRA is quick to say that guns are used more for suicide than mass shootings, so there’s absolutely nothing that can be done about it (actual medical professionals disagree with their expert opinion).

    Not only do these cities have progressive/democrat mayors, I would hazard a guess and say “most” of those mayors are black and, undoubtedly, each city has a “large” black population. Am I right, or wrong?

    • Oreisha

      You win the cigar!!!!!!!

      • madmemere

        Thanks, can I swap the cigar for a glass of good German Reisling?

        • Oreisha

          Don’t have any German Riesling. Right now I’m drinking Cutty Sark and water. I’d share that with you! Relaxing before bedtime.

          • madmemere

            Right on – -sleep well.

  • Jeff Johnson

    What do they expect to happen, when they keep voting democrat, time after time, after time….

  • dinkerduo

    And you notice that NONE of those cities are predominately populated by white people—-hummmmmmmmmm!

    Once on welfare with children, how about a 15% drop in payments for each NEW baby after that! Liberal’s think and act like 13 year old children! They know what they want but don’t know how to LOGICALLY get there without leaving a wake of wreckage in their path!

    • Oreisha

      The welfare should make it clear that they will pay for 2 children. Any after that would have to be raised on the current payment. One illigitimate child can be ignorance, 2 or more are stupidity. Mandatory sterilization should be the fee for more than 2 unwanted and unplanned pregnancies, But we would hear it loud and clear from the ACLU about “corporal punishment”. The ACLU should have to support them financially as well as legally and verbally. In my dream world.

        It has not been so long ago that there was a big squabble in Washington about forcing religious entities to provide birth control, no matter if they were against it or not. Now…with so much emphasis on birth control…and the govt. providing same for so many “poor” women…why is it that they are getting pregnant?
        The people pushing birth control tell us that it’s cheaper than bringing an unwanted child into the world and making society pay his way. So….are they saying that these women might have a package of pills in their purses, but cannot get monthly benefits unless they produce a child?
        As I said….keep them feeding at the trough of govt. largess…and they will vote for a particular party forever. LBJ said those words, but I paraphrase…he used the slang word for black people.
        While it seems he correctly predicted the voting trend…he might have actually been saying…”If we get the sluggards of this country…black, white, yellow or whatever…conditioned to rely on us for everything they need…all we need to do then, is to convince them that we…the Democrats…are responsible for giving them all this…we will have built a loyal following forever.”

    A small correction here, Detroit has finally gotten out from under the Democratic fist that has dragged it down starting with the proven to be corrupt Coleman A. Young, who still has schools and buildings named after him. That won’t change as there are many who still consider him a saint. The present mayor Mike Duggan, a Republican, is doing his best to repair the city after all the corruption
    that has destroyed the city. My only hope is he is able to remain in office long enough to allow the changes for the better to become
    reality.

    like my grandfather told me back in the 60s….a nigger cant help being a nigger cause the nigger was raised by a nigger.

    Interesting, considering that nothing is given to define what is meant by “violent.” In a list compiled from FBI statistics on violent crime, population of sex offenders, property crime and fatalities, Tulsa, OK tops the list, with OKC second. Orlando FL is #4. West Valley City, UT is #5 (all VERY conservative locations). There is a mix of conservative and liberal-leaning cities in the list. Perhaps people aren’t talking about this particular list because it was manufactured to further a partisan agenda, not based on any particular statistical reality.

    Another significant fact is that all ten cities have either a black majority or a black and hispanic majority: 63% in Birmingham; 31 +32% in Bridgeport; 52% in Newark; 85% in Gary; 48+47% in Camden; 53% in Flint; 83% in Detroit; 28+25% in Oakland; 49+4% in St. Louis; 53+10% in Cleveland. Numbers from Wikipedia.

    Criminality is amorality. The appalling lack of morals in so called minority communities is the cause of crime, violent and otherwise.The cure is obvious. Teach morality from Day One. There is a God Who rewards the good and punishes the Wicked. You may be smarter than the police, but you can’t get over on God.And, as your parent, if I catch you being wicked, I’ll beat Him to the punch. Folks in our family don’t do Bad Stuff; only fools do Bad Stuff. Got it?

    My new book to be released by Tate Publishing on December 9th shows that the Democratic Party has, since it came into being in 1792, been as ruthless, ungodly and greedy as to be a truly hurtful boil on a mans hindside. The book, reallly a pamphlet, is a great and informative short read for only $10.99 of which $4.40 will be donated to charity. Here is the link to “Federalism vs Factionalism-How the Democratic Party Raped the Republic” : https://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=978-1-63418-162-4 Thank you and God Bless you.

    Sounds like eight Democrats lost their job.. Republicans have maintained control of the House and gained control of the Senate. Now we will see just how many RINO’S we have elected.

  • Ronald Brobst

    Democrats are changing their name, They are now known as Demoncrats!

  • ErnieLane

    Why don’t Republican candidates, and not just talk-show hosts, emphasize this kind of thing every election? It’s like the reparations thing: Democrats base this on historical events. Well, the other side can play the history game: the KKK was Democrat, Democrats filibustered the Civil Rights Act, racist officials like Maddox, Wallace, Bull Conner were Democrats, Jim Crow laws existed in Democrat-run cities and states.

    It’s because the african community which is responsible for the majority of violent crime in this country, has no leadership, all they have are agitators like Sharpton and Jackson to encourage them to continue to act like uncivilized savages.

  • Laurence Almand

    Keep in mind that they are almost all Black, with a huge proportion on welfare, and having more out of wedlock babies than anywhere else.
    Of course Obama will deny this.

  • ernaldin

    Um, the biggest factor is the high negro populations. Let’s have an honest discussion about the black crime stats…..

  • Mark Sauck

    The most frieghtening thing about this list of 10 most violent cities is they’re considered more violent than another liberal city with well over three thousand gun shot victims this year and a murder rate that can only compare to the worse combat zones. You don’t even need to name this place because most people all over the world know it’s reputation and where it is. So what’s that say about the next 10 most violent American cities? Keep voting Democrat and maybe no one will feel safe even coming here to work let alone becoming a citizen.
