Guardian Unintentionally Admits That Democrat Policies Are Bad For Blacks

The UK Guardian, a hotbed of leftist politics, thinks they have something in an article on “gun violence.” They four authors, who probably did all their research online rather than heading into the actual dangerous areas, say that to fix it, you have to go local. And here’s what we get

The map of America’s gun violence epidemic can seem overwhelming. There were more than 13,000 gun homicides in the US in 2015, across nearly 3,500 cities and towns. But the toll of this gun violence was not distributed equally.

Half of America’s gun homicides in 2015 were clustered in just 127 cities and towns, according to a new geographic analysis by the Guardian, even though they contain less than a quarter of the nation’s population.

Even within those cities, violence is further concentrated in the tiny neighborhood areas that saw two or more gun homicide incidents in a single year.

Four and a half million Americans live in areas of these cities with the highest numbers of gun homicide, which are marked by intense poverty, low levels of education, and racial segregation. Geographically, these neighborhood areas are small: a total of about 1,200 neighborhood census tracts, which, laid side by side, would fit into an area just 42 miles wide by 42 miles long.

The problem they face is devastating. Though these neighborhood areas contain just 1.5% of the country’s population, they saw 26% of America’s total gun homicides.

I would highly recommend reading the entire article and viewing the accompanying graphics. Here’s just one of them for illustration

They highlight city after city, conveniently forgetting who runs the majority of these cities. That would be the Democratic Party. And the graphics show that the Democratic Party has left Blacks in poverty, low education, and violence.

BTW, the article itself is much better than the standard Guardian fare, well researched, attempting to take a somewhat unbiased view. Check it out.

    The Governor of Illinois is a Republican. In fact two thirds of our states are run by Republicans. When will they take some responsibility?

    Oh, did you mean black people, little guy?

  5. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    And just why would a governor take responsibility for what a mayor has done?

    You could be justified about republican governors if the crime was evenly spread around the state in both democrat leftist and republican rightist areas. But it is not. It’s not even close. For example my city, republican, is 5.2 miles from Philly. Our murder rate for 2016: 0. Democrat run Philly murder rate for 2016: 277.

    Ya know, maybe the democrats just have a propensity toward murder. A vast majority of murders are done by dems and an overwhelming number of prison inmates are dems. I guess that’s why they’re so hot to get inmates the vote.

    The problem isn’t the state of Illinois; the problem is the city of Chicago.

    And that’s the case almost everywhere: the highest crime rates are in the densely-populated urban areas, even in those states in which there are few blacks in those cities.

    The problem isn’t really racial; the problem is urbanization itself. Too many people, packed too closely together, in the very areas in which the costs of living are the highest, and you wind up with more crime and more violence.

    Well if you have a mayor who is willing to DEFY the president of the US…..I find it hard to believe that a Republican governor can actually make any headroads into Chicago…….

    Its all on the Democrats in Chicago….im not sure a Republican even lives in that city.

  8. Jeffery says:

    Democratic mayors alone aren’t in a position to solve the overwhelming problems of urban poverty and violence any more than Republican governors are. Most police officers are conservatives; why doesn’t Teach blame the police? If they were liberals, he would.

    In fact, under Dem mayors the homicide rates have dropped precipitously the past 30 years.

    Urban poverty and violence existed even before the treat migration of Blacks to northern/midwest cities (1915-1930 and again 1940-1970), and the shift of Black voters away from the newly racist Republican Party (50s-60s). Volumes have been written on the interrelated cycles of urban poverty and violent crime, but few experts consider the cause to be inherent or genetic.

    The greatest damage to the nation in a generation was the Great Recession of 2008, engineered largely out of Wall Street, NY City. Was the Great Recession Mayor Bloomberg’s fault?

  9. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    The recession of 2008 which Obama turned into the Great Depression with poor economic policies was not Bloomberg’s fault. National recessions are usually not the fault of mayors.

    In fact, under Dem mayors the homicide rates have dropped precipitously the past 30 years.

    Really? Prove it. Show me these homicide rates over 30 years that prove your point or tell me where to find them because all info I can find shows the dems have ruined every city they have controlled over the last 5 decades.

    Most police officers are conservatives; why doesn’t Teach blame the police? If they were liberals, he would.

    Really? And you know that how? Do you know “most” police officers? Or do you figure all those UNIONIZED cops are in a conservative labor union? I personally know dozens of cops and I’d say they are about split 50/50. I will say the liberals are not extreme leftists like you are Jeffery and the conservatives are not extreme rightists like I am. But they’re still split.

    Urban poverty and violence existed even before the treat migration of Blacks to northern/midwest cities (1915-1930 and again 1940-1970), and the shift of Black voters away from the newly racist Republican Party (50s-60s).

    You mean the “newly racist” Republicans who in the 50s and 60s were marching against Democrats like Lester Maddox, George Wallace and Bull Connor who were turning fire hoses and police dogs on blacks and Republicans (like my sister) marching for equal rights? Those “newly racist” Republicans?

    Volumes have been written on the interrelated cycles of urban poverty and violent crime, but few experts consider the cause to be inherent or genetic.

    “Few experts” expected Donald J. Trump to be the 45th President of the United States but he will be. I think by the time a person achieves your age and maturity it behooves them to admit “experts” seldom are. And I’d like to know who is an expert on the inherent or genetic impact of the interrelated cycles of urban poverty and violent crime and what makes them think they’re “experts”. I ask because if one fails to even notice that urban poverty and violent crime are almost exclusively the domain of inherent and genetic impact one is not looking carefully or one is too racist to admit it. Urban crime is almost exclusively black crime and black crime is almost exclusively black-on-black crime and where there is higher than normal crime rates among non-blacks it is almost always in Hispanic areas, not Amish or Jewish or Mormon neighborhoods.
