I would put Asian cities on the same level as white cities, many Asian cities are actually very safe and livable, take Tokyo for example.

4) Black City- A total dump, a danger zone, and VERY unlivable.

Yes, Toledo Ohio, a majority WHITE CITY is ranked 25th most violent city in America. So as you can see, RACE DOES NOT MATTER. ECONOMIC CLASS MATTER!!!
Another victory for our wonderful private prisons and the Prison Industrial Complex, who have since 1968 went to war against the POOR, and continue to have over 99.9% of the inmate population of ALL RACES from POVERTY. Hi-Five!!!!
Another victory for Economic Warfare. Another Hi-Five!!!
Californains were forced to spend over $14 billions in our State on accommodating the alien colonists which kept our minorities from getting all that help. Very sad.

Violence is always initiated from negative emissions/feeling and can perpetuate for many generations unless the bad core seeds are rooted out. This is typically due to lack of sub-prime investments= low employment=drugs=drink=violenc e.
Our economic paradigm is in conflict with our political ideology. We profess democratic ideals yet Corporate Capitalism is undemocratic in its command structure and in its integration with the legal/ political system. You cannot have true democracy when a relatively small group of people command so much political power. Wall Street/goldman sachs, those nasty prime and sub-prime guilt dealers and International Corporations, through campaign contributions and lobbying efforts skewer the whole fabric of our society and government. Instead of society and government reflecting the beliefs and expectations of the masses, they have been warped into satisfying the desires of a fairly few number of Elites. This makes our system a predatory and imperialistic one. Many if not most of the marginalized persons in our society and prisons are the discarded flotsam of this winner take all, might makes right, and selfish- materialist culture.
Do not be the victim, the discarded floatsum of this winner takes all, might makes right selfish materialistic culture!
Find your self!
I my opinion the history of the human beliefs system have since conspired to be irrational and illogical.
Like the burning of witches and people believing the earth was flat to name just two.
We are are also never right because nature claims everything back from us, so there can only be one sort of panentheism or monotheism which also reflects to ones self Atman or being.-The true accountable self soul and conscienceless-

Brahman http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahman%5DBrahma...
Upanishads http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upanishads
Vedanta Advaita http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advaita_Ved
Of which are derivatives & teachings of the Vedas written in Sanskrit 1500–1000 BCE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas
There are 4 Vedas Rig-veda, Yajur-veda, Samaveda , Atharvaveda -Sanskrit &#2357;&#2375;&#23 42; véda, "knowledge")
The Vedas are among the oldest sacred texts.
The Samhitas date to roughly 1500–1000 BCE, and the "circum-Vedic" texts, as well as the redaction of the Samhitas, date to c. 1000-500 BCE, resulting in a Vedic period, spanning the mid 2nd to mid 1st millennium BCE, spanning the Late Bronze Age and the Iron Age.
Upanishads
1. Prajnanam Brahma -Consciousness is Brahman -in the Aitareya Upanishad of the Rig-Veda.
2. Aham Brahmasmi -I am Brahman -in the Brahadaranyaka Upanishad of the yajur-Veda.
3. Tat Tvam Asi -That thou art -in Cchandogya Upanishad of the Sama-Veda.
4. Ayam Atma Brahma -The self is Brahman -in Mandukya Upanishad of the Atharva-Veda.
According to the Upanishads, we as humans have a metaphysical being called the atman, then there's the Brahman who which is the Absolute Atman or Supreme Soul or Spirit -also known as Supersoul or Oversoul- Brahman who is the eternal, unchanging, infinite, immanent, and transcendent reality which is the Divine Ground of all matter, energy, time, space, being, and everything beyond in this Universe.
The word "Brahman" is traditionally derived from the verb ((brh))(Sanskrit: to grow), and connotes greatness and infinity.
Hope this helps!
It helps...next time I need an article that's sure to give a headache.

That's because you've never lived in an asian city while I have. As a matter of fact, I'm living in one now. Are many asian cities modern? Yes, but in almost every major asian city I've lived in there has been way too much corruption, way too many slum areas yucked in between some of those nice, sleek building and towers, and way too much pollution and trash all over the place.

They ALL have parks and attractions. But a word to the wise; don't go out of the tourist areas. These cities may be nice places to visit but you certainly wouldn't want to live there.

Not fair.

You left out the CIA, SECRET SERVICE, FBI, and
Spike Lee. It's just not a decent conspiracy without him. Oh, and
Oliver Stone. A good slight of hand yelling and pointing into the sky shouting "hey, look, Batman!" Everyone looks.

I guess you ought to find yourself a good "Asian" city to move to. They might welcome you with open arms. NOT!!! They don't trust you double tongue devils!

I drove through N.County the other day down New Halls Ferry Rd. and W.Florissant. I could not believe my eyes, It looks like a war zone. I can remember back when I was young and in the summer we would walk to all the stores and sometimes to Northland Shopping Center. Every store is boarded up now or completely gone. The mall is long gone there is a grocery store there now. Sad!

How dumb, just one more thing to whine, complain and moan about.

Who cares. Every city and town has its good and bad aspects.

Wow, another excuse to bring up race and blame it on the black people. Get a clue.

The USA is really messed up. It's barely been functioning. But has been brought down to it's knees.

Obama is most certainly well hated now by the majority. He is a puke, and I pray God strikes him down with a bolt of lightning from the sky.

The most dangerous cities and towns are the ones with volunteer firemen because 82% of them are psycho-sexual arsonists

Or maybe their MOMS and DADS are in prison from the profit wars....I'm sorry for cursing, I mean DRUG WARS.
But there is one thign for sure, the biggest CRIMINALS in our history (you know, the ones who stoled 1.3 TRILLION FROM TAX PAYERS) were the guys who wore 5 peice suits and work at the highest position and finances and corporations. But ofcourse we will NEVER see my fellow colleagues in jail, yes?????
What business do parents of children have engaging in drug activity anyway? I agree the war against drugs is stupid and a lost cause but my contention is, most people know the laws and if they choose to go against them, risking their family over something so trivial, then they deserve what they get. It's about making RESPONSIBLE decisions!

Hey, I like CORPORATISM. It keeps the masses of people economic SLAVES for our (the elites) monetary system. Alongs everyone keeps spending those dollars, we can stay in POWER.
Capitalism, if used in moderation, stimulates a nation's economy and therefore benefits it; however, when abused, like most things, capitalism can be downright ugly. If you dont NEED it or can't afford it; don't buy it, it's really that simple...

Not at all true; I would like to see the white collar scumbags locked up just as fast and long. The difference is they might have an affect financially on me but I don't have to worry that one of their stray bullets will kill one of my family members. That's probably why people are so more excitable over such violence; because the effects are more direct and many times more deadly.
