Top 10 most dangerous cities in America 2013

Probably the dumbest stuff I’ve seen on the net in awhile. A friend sent the link to me and this was my response. 

A few things. 

1) As I’ve told you many times before… numbers ALWAYS lie. 

2) Who cares what the population’s race is? (why are they all African American populated cities and why is that the FIRST thing reported)

3) When we talk about crime the median income stat should be the first stat up their, to your average uninformed reader well these places have high crime rates because there are a lot of black people there, right? 

4) “count your blessings and lock your doors” WHAT?! How much do YOU trust the lock on your door from keeping danger away from you? Lets all lock our doors and sleep with bibles under our pillows so the boogy man wont get us. 

5) What constitute as a dangerous crime?

6) So why is the percentage of race important again? Whats more dangerious, gun violence and robbery (not that this is what they mean…) Or men in suits and ties buying elections, trading cash for our freedom, public safety, education, and paychecks.

7) So after they did the study and published this list… now what? Does the article give plans to rebuild? Does it even give reasons why these cities are dangerous  Nope.. it just says pray and lock your doors if you live around these places as if the people that live IN these places have some how adapted and enjoy this crime. HAAAAAAAA!!!! 

8) If we are talking about DANGEROUS by way of murders and robbery how is Chicago NOT number 1 (Oh… bc there are not enough black people per capita…. Smh)

Its all bs, if you want to let the media scare you into thinking you are not safe anywhere by all means go right ahead, but to me its racism, fear mongering and its unproductive and unprogressive. Furthermore if you look into most of these cities I’m sure history will show you at one time or another either there was some type of corruption or a booming factories, business, and establishments that no longer exist. 

Let us all lock our doors pray and sleep with bibles under our pillows, and everything will be okay!

Md. Assembly votes to repeal death penalty

Not quite sure how I feel about this yet. On one hand we obviously have a broken Criminal Justice system that unfairly criminalizes people of color, but on the other hand I’m not sure if that means ALL crime should not be punishable by death.

Justices slap down federal prosecutor for ‘deeply disappointing’ race remark

“You’ve got African-Americans. You’ve got Hispanics, and you’ve got a bag full of money.  Does that tell you — a light bulb doesn’t go off in your head and say, ‘This is a drug deal?’”

Damn…. really?! Much support to United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for further voicing her opinion about this being unacceptable!

In China, Beware: A Camera May Be Watching You

This article is an interesting listen. It reminded me of an article I posted a few months back about Microsoft helping the NYPD do pretty much the same thing (See

I guess the only difference is the United States has not quite reached the programs full potential. Either that are we are much more quiet about it. Nevertheless this should not scare anyone for visiting China however it should wake people up about what is soon to come in a city near you. As I mentioned earlier when the news first came out about NYPD, if it was created by Microsoft you better believe Washington State metropolitan cities like Bellevue and Seattle are not far from trying to get these laws implemented. Seeing as how the Seattle Police Department already has a drone, I mean why would not they have the technology to spy on anyone they please?

Obama’s First Term: A Romantic Oral History

Very good and interesting read. I don’t think anyone ever thought that being president was an easy job, but from the headache I received just reading about being president I can only imagine what it would be like to hold the position.
