You must not live in DC. Is petty simple and applies everywhere. Large population of black people = violent crime.
DC bans guns and promotes single mother homes. That's a disaster.
drug addiction, gang activity, low income, and a police force more focused on protecting politicians than DC citizens.
Actually there is still a lot of gang activity, it's just overshadowed by LA and Chicago's problems. On the issue of poverty, yes the south may have more poverty, but DC has Much less people making the visible aspects of income inequality much easier to spot.
I know for a fact there's a blood affiliated gang, there's probably a couple latino ones Latin kings, Brown Pride, and since crips tend to do *** for tat with the bloods there's probably a crip gang as well. The problem with researching them is since gangs are by definition illegal activity they can't exactly advertise. You have to rely on anecdotal as well as police reports, you're in for a lot of legwork.
....Actually DC is about 50% black, 39 % white.
I think you know why
Its where all the scum and parasites of society congregate; and by that I mean politicians
I know, its insane; being a TN resident, I can remember a time when a shooting was huge news. Now its a common occurrence, and nobody seems to be doing anything about it...good thing we have liberal gun shows monthly lol
In a metaphorical sense, yes lol
