I by no means have the answers of which city hav had long term Democrat leadership and money and still sunk into the violent abyss. Perhaps as you look at the cities you will know. I would wonder since the 1960’s Great Society, how many Billions and Billions have been spent on these cities and to what affect. Take away the last 8 years of leadership by a Republican Pres.,..then compare how much for poverty, urban renewal, welfare, education, special interests groups, all the programs…how much $$$$ and to what affect? Let me guess…not enough right? Newt didn’t derailed 35 years of Dem controlled Congresses in a matter of a few years? Can we please settle upon the demise of the family unit, certain religious values, ethics, civility, drugs (illegal or not), immigration policy, cultural corruption via the media as in large part the causative factors. Has the secular, nanny state failed so far? Is more money the real answer? I don’t have many answers here. I just know that this problem continues and law and order aside, Conservatives need to ultimately address this beyond our own worn out cliches or the Hope and Change BS. For real, we need to figure out how to address real poverty, not from some 1950 definitions, and also the slackers that comprise this obnoxious 40-50% non-contributing sector of our country. They must be energized by our principles. The Nanny State must be broken down. The murders reduced. Gang violence crushed. The immigration fiasco addressed. All the rest is gibberish talk by up tight theoreticians on the deck of the Titanic. Where are the clear spoken leaders that can see through this mess?    

In my town, amazingly not on the list, there has been a great deal of urban renewal and gentrification. Subsequently, minorities are moving out to the suburbs and so is the murder rate, the drugs, the overload of the schools with problems. All the money spent in the old neighborhoods is great for the hipsters and yuppies. But, the people in need of opportunity, for jobs, for training are moving out. No matter where I see it, there is a almost universal life style that lends itself to problems…no matter the race, the lifestyle and ethics are the heart of the problem. I see single mothers working, struggling to keep unattended children straight and somehow some do. And, those kids, I have witnessed, make it through high school with a loving parent or grandparent, sometimes both parents and several amazing teachers along the way. I have not witnessed too many kids make it if the values are not there.      

Not sure where New Orleans is in these stats??? But you get the idea. If you took just the south side of Chicago, the numbers would be skewed. The numbers are per 100K, so that explains the smaller towns. A starting point. No need to argue the stats…close enough to ask…Who Has Been Leading the Majority of these Hell Holes?
