    Default New York City crime stats....Why is this? Well.....

    Read an interesting crime stat from New York City. Just wondering why, and what the solutions may be?

    With regard to race, which is often discussed by the media by the way...( and politicians as well..)
    ...Blacks make up 23% of the population, but account for 75% of shootings and 70% of robberies.
    ...Whites make up 34% of the population but account for just 2% of shootings and 4% of robberies.

    ...So the question is why does such a small percent of the population, blacks, commit such a high percentage of robberies and shootings?
    ...What are the underlying causes of this?
    ...What may be the solutions to those causes?

    This is likely doesn't just pertain to New York, but likely other cities such as Chicago, Memphis, Birmingham. Baltimore, D.C. etc...
    ....Will the media touch this issue or politicize it, or cover it up? Just think if shootings and robberies were at 2 and 4% for ALL races...What would cities look like then?

    Again, what are some real steps that could put a dent in this problem?

    improving public education would be a start, after school programs, etc.
    If we allow politicians to succeed by scaring people, we donít actually end up any safer. Fear doesnít make us safer. It makes us weaker - Justin Trudeau Prime Minister of Canada.

    We spend more money per capita on education than anywhere else on the globe. Clearly money isn't the problem.
    Don't blame me, I voted for Gary Johnson.

    spending more money does equal improving education, you need to look at the programs, class sizes, how people are learning, etc.

    Build a time machine and prevent hundreds of years of slavery and 100 years of Jim Crow.

    Anything specific on improvements? What about parental responsibility and especially involvement? Anti drug programs? Ex gang members as speakers? Black professionals in business involved in helping? Black pro athletes touring schools with a " stay in school" message, and avoiding drugs and gangs? How about black pastors? Would any of this help?

    Let's see. Is it because black Americans are genetically disposed to violent crime and stealing stuff? That white people are genetically superior in many ways and therefore less likely to do things like this?

    I think maybe the previous suggestion might be what you are looking for. Mass deportations. We'll have system well tuned for it after all of the deportations back to Central America.

    Harlem is the part of New York with the lowest rent and property value. Thr majority of the people that live there are black. Poor neighborhoods have crime.



    The fact of the matter is NYC has a lower crime rate than virtually any other city in America or anywhere else. A very nice place to live.

    Come on, this a serious problem, that requires serious solutions that recognize the truth. But of course, the obligatory race card must be played by those on the left to wash themselves of failed policies...White people are the devil and everyone else is the victim...Get real....Race card days are over....

    Poverty.

    It really is that simple. Look at any city anywhere and you'll notice the crime map mirrors the poverty map regardless of the racial makeup of the city. Blacks are far more likely to live in poverty than whites. As such often the racial map mirrors the poverty map and thus mirrors the crime map. And in the bigger cities where poverty is particularly bad gangs tend to take over.

    There are all kinds of sociological reasons why minorities are more likely to be in poverty but poverty is the reason.

    Here's the truth. Poverty is directly related to crime. The poverty in the black community is a residual effect of 250 years of slavery, 100 years of Jim Crow, and a country that is still rife with racism. All that has produced shocking inequality.

    So yes, get serious. Be honest. White America benefitted massively from all of the above. Call out racism in every single instance until every analysis and demographic shows that there is absolute racial equality in this country.

    The OP did not create this thread because he wanted information.
    Trump supporters have space bugs in their heads. It is the only explanation.

    While I don't think propensity for crime is in any way racial. I do think there are many aspects to current black culture that lead poverty. And it seems to be a cycle. If anyone can figure out a way to break the cycle on a large scale basis things could finally improve.

    The two most important factors are high school graduation, and two parent families.

    Well said...Those two " factors" are huge in the solution...
