Charlotte has always had a lot of crime going back 30-40 years ago compared to other places in NC.
Before Charlotte entices business to move here then they need to do what other cities do and that is put in the road systems before the growth or at least start. Or else do not encourage any growth. Stay small town who cares. Its been a long time since I have been to Raleigh except to the airport but dont' they have two beltways.
One thing I will say about Charlotte that you dont' see in a lot of places in the south is that Charlotte is the only place I know that sends their redneck sons and daughters to college and they still come back rednecks but now you have educated rednecks still clueless. The ones that aren't clueless don't come back here. Just like your post proves who and what you are and why this city is such a mess.

You people are sick. Stop being so mean and saying such hateful things. I am shocked and appalled to see the statements written here. You should be ashamed of yourself for continuing this evil. When I read things like this I feel embarrassed to be a white American. You do not represent me or my feelings.

You caucasoids never cease to amaze me! You are born hypocrites and racist (white supremist). If you knew that you are living in a city that is named after an Afrikan Queen, you would not believe me. But, yes, the city of Charlotte is named after an Afrikan Queen and Meklenburg County is named after her last name. She was called a Mulatto, which is another word for 'light skinned' Black. Read up on this truth and learn that you are living in a Black city.

You caucasoids are nasty, hateful, evil people who blame everything on Afrikan people. Let's face it, you people start wars, steal, kill, and oppress every culture, even your own! Clean up or shut up!

man I hope all of you burn. I was just thinking about looking into the carolinas, but i was skeptic of the area and its history, and you convinced me to stay away. If there ever has to be a nuclear war, maybe they'll do us a favor, and do a little "cleaning" in the south. it f2cking needs it. old dirty white trash, who are only capable of 2 READ IT 2 insults - lazy n55gers, and god 3dmn LIBERALS! as if liberalism was a bad thing. without liberalism, EVERY ONE OF YOU HICKS would still be in a shack working for your slave owning neighbor next to the blacks you hate so much. you are not just wrong, and stupid, and ignorant, as far as I'm concerned, you don't deserve democracy. Maybe in the new america, we can vote out the south, and have an actual country of intelligent people who don't base their ideas on ignorant stereotypes and faux news and MY MAN RUSH! YEAH! HE sure tells it like it is(Sic). fucking morons. fucking morons. Like Bill Hicks said, "Let's you and I chat politics on the porch while your wife widdles a dong and f4s her own p1111y with it, you illiterate redneck P.O.S., F- you and if thats what america is, then F america too.

The Forbes list is accurate, the white people calling out blacks for the disproportionate number of violent crimes committed by black people are correct, and the black people who are complaining about the good ol' boy system are also correct.

Charlotte is the most dull place I have ever lived. Cannot wait to move somewhere where I do not have to worry so much about getting shot by a black "gan'sta", or to be appalled at the ignorance of the white morons.

Anyone considering moving here: check the crimeincharlote.com website. Those statistics don't lie.. you'll see an accurate face of the common criminal in Charlotte- a black one. The idiot white lawmakers continue to enable them by catch and release tactics.. the place sucks.. not only crime wise, but in cultural standards as well.

Thanks for this info but I believe you are mistaken. You are thinking of a city in Ohio named Rashika, in Lamumba County. And she was called a high-yellow. Otherwise your facts are correct.

Forbes on Charlotte: Miserable

Miserable City
CHARLOTTE -- After studying 150 cities, Forbes Magazine has categorized life in Charlotte as miserable.
The cities were compared in six different categories: traffic, taxes, toxic waste, crime, climate and unemployment.
"I think Forbes ratings are laughable and they have lost total creditability,” said Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory.
The Queen City is ranked ninth out of 150 as being miserable places to live. The city fell in between Modesto, California and Providence, Rhode Island. Detroit ranked highest.
New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles are also ranked in the top ten. The rankings show bad scores for the city’s high taxes and violent crime. Traffic also scored badly; something the magazine attributes to a growing population.
Forbes marks Charlotte as the biggest surprise, and said tremendous economic growth in the last few years is bound to backfire in light of banking problems.
New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angles are also ranked in the top ten.
This is a disappointing story, but unfortunately there are some facts behind it. I lived in Charlotte for 5 years and the taxation, cost of living, and the lack of activity in the city prompted me to leave and find other places to live. When I first moved to Charlotte in late 99, I loved the city. I thought it was a hidden treasure in the south, but under the surface, there was a lot of corruption in the government, the city infrastructure was slowly beginning to hurt from it, and the identity of Charlotte was started to crumble. It was like watch a child getting hit by a car and there is nothing you can do. When I left Charlotte, I was very heart broken because I fell in love with the city, but also fell out of love with it and this happened in a time period of about 5 years. I have been back to Charlotte and there are still some good things about the city, but I would never move back.

Crime, traffic, taxes, yes, I would agree with that.
I left Charlotte on December 26, 2003. At the time, I lived near Fairview and Providence (near Cotswold Village and South Park) and even in that area, the crime increased overwhelmingly in just 12 months.

Crime in Charlotte is rising! But its still a beautiful city where whites are among the minority. Charlotte caters to the black people. So if you are black, you will love it here! If you are white, move to the outskirts! Its simple!

Second place you write about truth as if you know how to locate it. Take the case of Nick Mackey; Nick earned a law degree, had a Masters degree in
Business Administration, Public Administration, Criminology to go along with his undergrad degree. On top of that he worked 12 years for the CMPD making his way to the rank of Sergant.
Then he wins the election for Sheriff and suddenly he is stripped of the election and white idiots like you begin to babble on about all kinds of meaningless things.
You call that facing the truth? You cant find the truth because finding the truth requires a cognitive process that you no longer posess.
You couldn't find your a$$ with both hands and a hunting dog

Mr Bill, I do not want a sherrif that has filed for bankruptcy. If he cant keep his personal finances straight, i dont want him messing with mine. This was not a black-white issue! Our new police chief is black and this city loves him!

I totally agree that the issue is because of the blacks taking over. Charlotte is becoming an Atlanta or DC. My company is predominantly black and it is awful. No professionalism, education, and they love to play the race card. I have two degrees and my company is quickly going down hill. I have never worked at a place so unprofessional. They dress like they are at the club and cops have showed up numerous times due to fights or to arrest an associate, all which are black. Hope to find a new job soon where the people are more professional.

Birds of a feather flock together; where ever you have that UNETHICAL LAW FIRM 'KING & SPALDING', you will naturally find CORRUPTION IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT. K & S headquearters is ATLANTA, & Forbes ranked them the "16TH MOST MISERABLE CITY"! Do we see a trend here???
