Kansas City, MO number 21 and New York, NY number 269? Get the heck out of here! This list is comical. A lot has to do with the laws and what they decided to define as a "crime" in each city. Chicago not making the list because of unknown rape numbers? What are they going off of? I live in Kansas City and have been all over the US...and I can speak from experience and say that KC isn't close to being even as "rough" to alot of places. It sounds like they didn't take into account each cities population. North Las Vegas is a way more crime ridden place then KC.

Detroit and many of these other cities where economically sound until the black hands started extending out with palms facing up, demanding handouts!
There is something inherently different about the black race, which can be seen compared against nearly every other race that has come to the USA and worked hard to provide and be successful for their families, dating all the way back to the European immigrants. Jews, Arabs, Asians, Mexicans, they come here poor and end up applying good work ethic, morals, and pride, and they are decent citizens...this is not the case with blacks as can be seen driving down nearly any street in Detroit or any other city listed above, where one see's trash, weeds, broken down cars and houses.
Newsflash...picking up trash in yoru yard costs nothing!!!
If one does not honestly admit to themselves (and publicly) there is a problem, then the problem can NEVER be corrected.
Dang you are one racist s o b. You sort of forgot to mention that out of all those different people you listed that black people were the only ones that came to this country chained down 10 high on slave ships. I'm a white person and the only thing that makes me as sick as thinking about my evil ancestors is reading your ignorant comment.

Nobody alive today bought, sold, transported or worked a slave or ever was a slave! Your evil ancestors made this country what it is today. The poorest people in America have big Screen TV's, cell phones, X-boxes, clothes, cars, food and homes. You don't find that anywhere else in the world for poor people. Poor people here would be rich people in other parts of this world. Your white ancestors did not capture blacks and bring them over here. Black people sold other black people to whites so you can blame the black man also. Your white guilt is pathetic and stupid. Get a job dead beat!

I always love responses from the ill-informed and ignorant....it only makes this easier!

The reality is, a huge portion of this country now, had nothing to do with slavery at all, many came to the states long after the time of slavery. In fact you asserting that all whites have something to do with US slavery is a bigoted ignorant and uninformed statement.
You know who had the most to do with slavery in the USA...shocker...African tribe leaders, who sold out their own. Way to go Kunta

African tribal chiefs wanted to get rid of their under-performers, their weak, their mentally challenged, as well as their prisoners captured in battle with other tribes, which they used to trade for spices, clothing and other things.

So maybe the next time you want to blather out some knee-jerk nonsense, perhaps you ought to do a little research yourself!
In fact, its moronic statements like yours, that continues to fuel the politically correct reverse discriminatory bullshiat that is killing this country today! Your inability to admit or recognize the problems, only adds to the continuation of the problem.

Perhaps you should have stayed in school so that your critical thinking process wasn't hampered by your ignorance.

Save your "we are the world" crap for the head in the sand reality you obviously live in, because here...calling people racists for speaking facts and reality is nothing short if stooopid!

Honestly, sitting around in the shadows waiting for someone to say something that you deem as offensive, just so you can pop your head out and say...BAD BAD RACIST, HATER, BIGOT, INTOLERANT BAD YOU CANT SAY THAT BAD BAD...is really douchy!

Argue why peoples points are wrong or stfu, but acting like a victim won't get you any sympathy points here.

Fictional character biography

Kallark is a member of the Strontian race, and was born under Shi'ar rule. All Strontians are born with the capacity for great strength and various superpowers, but can only use them when they are completely devoted to a purpose. Fearing a Strontian rebellion, the Shi'ar emperor ordered Kallark, among other Strontians, to kill the Strontian elders. Only Kallark was devoted enough to carry out the order, and the others were killed when their wavering commitment rendered them weak. As a reward for his actions, Kallark was named the Praetor (leader) of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard.

LMAO!

Yay! You figured it out! I could've told you that. What's so funny about that? He's my favorite comic character. I chose to name my Topix avatar after him. Big deal lol. You speak as if you found the cure for cancer lol.
