This sounds bad, but hear me out. I recall when there was a topic asking where the worst neighborhoods were. Almost all were black areas.
Why are black areas the crappiest areas of the city. Okay, I understand that they were once “redlined” to live there and poverty may keep them there. But, geez, just because you’re poor doesn’t mean you can’t be clean!
And why are they the most violent areas? It’s hard to blame whitey, since we hardly ever venture into those neighborhoods. Most of the gangfights, drive-bys, robberies, are among themselves.
I know most of the answers may blame white people (or some euphemism) for their plight. Then how come many of the nations in Africa are parallels to the inner cities (violence, poverty, filth, etc)?
