Who cares? I could come up with a website and pull neighborhoods out of my arse too. Although anyone who has been around the 21st street area would probably say that it is not the best, I'd hardly say it's the 16th worst in the country!

Kind of odd these are mostly african american neighborhoods. If the parents in the neighborhoods, and mostly the fathers, would step up and start parenting they would not be on the list. They also need to live Christians lives and not for themselves.

Not surprised. I won't evn go near the neighorhood. Not just that one but all the ones around it. I picked up a lady while volunteering with the Shepherds center to take her to a doctor appt and she lived on 23rd street. Never again. She was very nice and I feel bad for her but I'll never go back to that area. I know my place and it isn't near there, lol.

Awesome! Congrats! If you guys keep at it, you will make 1st place in no time. I knew you could do it!

Man, I bet all of you are so proud with the team work and dedication it took to get to this point. I know it has taken long hours and a lot of jail time to accomplish this, but your tenacity and hard work is paying off. Don't give up!

I think everyone in Winston Salem owes it to the thugs on this street to just drive on by and line up for car jacking's, shootings and a few random assaults so we as a community can make Winston Salem #1.

We can do it together!

I have to politely disagree. Is it the crazy white and asian kids causing all the problems?

Imagine that, a black drug infested neighborhood having a crime problem. Who would have guessed that?

Need to live Christian lives? Where are you getting religion from? I'm offended from this statement, and I believe you are wrong. You need to look outside out of your religion where you think you have all the answers. Here's the simple truth. You don't know the answers. No one does. Don't get all smug because your religion convinced you that they do.

I appreciate your being polite. Blacks do not commit crime. Poor, uneducated, fatherless people do. It is a terrible state of affairs that many of our black youths fit within this demographic. But, they are not committing crimes 'because' of the color of their skin. That is my only point.

I can agree with that but im sure there is a small percentage that do have fathers and sadly follow in their footsteps
