  • King Barsillyass

    What do they all have in common? Nigras!

    • Amanda Lynn Case

      And what do you and Trump have in common? White Supremacy and racism!

      • King Barsillyass

        I don’t care for black society so I must be a Trump supporter… Got it.

        Here’s an idea, go fuck yourself.

        • Lee Shafer

          you tell ’em

      • Gary Einstein

        Was he wrong?

      • Tom Tucker

        There is absolutely nothing wrong with White Supremacy. If it ain’t white it ain’t right.

      • TheStupid1

        Hey fool, he is 100% right. Every single area has blacks there. And most of the blacks there hate whites. Not only do they cause all the crime there but they are racists. So you know what bitch? Like a child you keep on calling names ALL YOU WANT. But youre still wrong and youre still a small minded twat.

      • Zaklog the Deplorable

        Let’s set aside his unpleasant tone for the moment. Is he wrong?

    • The Zipster

      My, my what an “educated” comment. And when did you pick up your degree in racism and ignorance from dumbfuck U?

      • TheStupid1

        Wow!!!! What a intelligent thing to say! Actually King is 100% right. If you dont like a comment but the facts are right, be an adult and ACCEPT IT.

        • The Zipster

          Thanks for proving me correct you simple minded dickwad. Do you really understand just how racist and stupid that post was?

          • Al Gorn

            Facts are racist?

            • The Zipster

              You and fact do not belong in the same sentence, paragraph or even the same room. All you manage to puke up here is rightwingnutter lies based on more rightwingnutter lies.

              • ToursLepantoVienna

                Behold the sputtering leftist. When presented with facts inconsistent with their cherished egalitarian fantasy, they are reduced to invective.

                • The Zipster

                  Hmm, you are entitled to your opinion but not your own set of facts which you regurgitate here.

              • Al Gorn

                Sorry, I don’t follow you? Can you put that in layman’s terms?

                • The Zipster

                  That would be a personal problem for you. It is not my fault that you are a low information moron.

                  • Al Gorn

                    Triggered!

      • Zaklog the Deplorable

        Tell me, is his statement false? Are, or are not those areas predominantly black?

    • egnima

      Just other views showing the consequences of Liberal/Democratic control.

  • the man from amsterdam

    god damn i fucking hate comment sections sometimes. racism, hatred, aggression and a complete lack of empathy. bunch of animals.

  • Todd

    I think there are some areas in Oak Cliff that might have something to say about this list.

  • Ezekiel 25:17

    NE 36th and MLK. Rev. Jesse Jackson (local guy) and NAACP last year asked chief Bill Citty to reduce police force allocations to the district. The theory is that with less arrests, people will feel safer. Its like closing down fire stations because of all those reports of fires. The blowback was fast. The TRIADS, a group of seniors, went to Mr. Citty and said, “Please don’t do that, we are living in a war zone and seeing those officers drive down our streets is reassuring at the bare minimum.” Chief Citty did not reduce patrols of MLK.
    The other issue in the district has to do with the myth believers. Brown did a bad number on many Black communities. You know now that the hands-up deal was bogus. The guy even recanted it in court. We had our own near-Brown incident. Al Sharpton was on his personal 727 to fly here. OCPD officer had gunned down a Black man on 23rd street. A witness told media right away he exited the car and gave up but was shot dead. It forced detectives to rush the camera footage to the media faster than usual. In that footage, the guy exits his car and starts shooting the officers who had pursued him. The footage shows the cars bullet holes in windows, doors, hoods, etc. Later, OCPD revealed the so-called eyewitness was a well known mentally troubled homeless man who was out for his day in the papers. Al Sharpton got a call and his staff emailed him the footage of the shootout and he turned his 727 around about 200 miles from Will Rogers airport.

  • Luke101

    I remind everyone reading this that there are many Poor White areas of the Country, which are dangerous too.
    Besides, this election is NOT about race, despite many baiters trying to make it so.

    • ToursLepantoVienna

      Of course there are, but just like being an NFL cornerback or an Olympic sprint champion, turning neighborhoods into violent, desperate, drug-ridden disasters is a competition that whites just can’t seem to win.

  • Mellisa Stuckert

    What all these neighborhoods have in common is abandoned properties/ overgrown lots, absentee landlords, low wages, fewer jobs, poor or mismanaged public transportation systems, failing school systems, and a whole lot of people who are simply struggling to survive each day. Food to eat, a roof over their heads,electricity, hot and cold clean uncontaminated drinking water,heat and necessary medications are the daily struggle and reality of most living in these areas. You can’t escape these struggles if you can not even meet your most basic needs. Food assistance and cash assistance from the government comes no where close to being near what a family needs just to survive. If you have never been on assistance – don’t. There is a constant struggle to meet all the obstacles states put in your paths, if you make a little more money they take away an unequal amount of benefits so these individuals have always take three steps back for every step forward. Case workers are overwhelmed and or incompetent and fail to even tell their clients where else they can find a hand up. So until you know these individuals stories and walked a mile in their shoes, stop putting the blame on them and making uneducated assumptions.

    • egnima

      Keeping it simple, the only thing they have in common is Democrats buying their votes by giving them just enough to barely get-by. It’s the same format used on the American Indians & we all know how that worked out.

      • The Zipster

        So just what have the republicans done for them?

    • Peckersnot

      In other words, a Democrat’s Utopia.

    • That Guy Who Goes There

      Apparently it’s not a daily struggle to buy liquor, lottery tickets, cigarettes, spray paint and giant rims.

    • ToursLepantoVienna

      A median IQ of 85 explains all, not “overwhelmed and or incompetent” case workers or the litany of other excuses you proffer.

      BTW, have you heard of the “paragraph”?

  • Jeanie

    Vine and Garden St in Hartford,Ct and Chicago, several hoods were nowhere on the list.

    • ToursLepantoVienna

      Only the top 15 neighborhoods were included. The competition is ferocious. They’ll just have to try harder next year.

      • Jeanie

        You’re right.

  • GodSAveAmerica

    ZZZZZZZZZZZ…
    More pictures of “DA HOOD.”

  • egnima

    Wow……they are all democrat controlled & have been for decades. Who would have thunk? Doesn’t look like liberal give always are working for them.

  • DisplacedDetroiter

    Detroit makes the list THREE times! Yay Detroit! Oh, wait…

  • COOP737588

    I was born in e.st.louis,il. And that town believe it or non USED to be mostly white. Not until affirmative action was enacted did it start going to shit.The US govt built a nice new federal building,3 yrs later it was vacant! GO FIGURE!!!!!!!!!

  • Lyle Petersen

    I was going to be very disappointed if East St Louis didn’t make the list.

    I was not disappointed. Twice over.

  • HansonBro

    This is a simple wild-*ss guess, of course, but I’m betting that these areas all are predominately Democrat?

    • Jukesgrrl

      The properties are predominantly owned by Republicans. Does that count for anything in your book?
