But you are nitpicking, aren't you? We're talking about black people and they don't exist in any sizable number in the neighborhoods you mentioned. Period.

Actually, it depends on where you look - based on the data I'm looking at, both are about 20 - 25% (depending on the census tract). But, your point is well-taken, both are more integrated than they used to be. Thanks for educating me on the change (really, I mean it). Still doesn't change my point to the original poster. The city is still - in the aggegate - much more segregated than LA, though not as bad as NYC, which is one of the most segregated cities in the country.

enough of all that this city has this kind of POWER and that city has that kind of POWER crap... at the end of the DAY theirs only one POWER that foresees all of that economic, financial, and culture power gibberish so lets just cut to the chase.... what city actually has that "Do as I say" POWER??? What city actually makes commands that all other cities must follow suite of???... What city has the leader of all Leaders residing within its City limits???

Look folks..... Weather we like it or not....theirs only one city that we can think of with those powers and that city my Friends is Washington, DC.... not NY, LA or Chicago... even tho they are all rulers of they're own little Worlds, but neither of them can call any shots for crying out loud... so how can they be more powerful when they cant even appoint one single rule or law that not even one city or state is obligated to follow... WOW that's some power ...... Washington, DC is where the real POWER is and not any of that other crap that you guys have been mentioning.... Now dont get me wrong.... Economic, Financial, and all those other types of powers that some of you were talking about does play key rolls in our country and perhaps maybe even the world... but neither of those powers can go as far or touch on the kinds of things or issues that the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT can and the home of the US GOVT. is indeed in Washington, DC ...... I honestly dont see how any place where Laws are made, The President of the country Lives, where Nuclear Weapons are controlled, and Can send an entire country to War at anytime can have less Power than Cities that has financial or economic power .. that just doesnt add up to me ... do you guys really think that those top CEO's and Executives of those big Financial companies have more power than the President and the people of Congress?? or are you like me and think that its the other way around??? ohh and here's another question.... Which Category of Power holds the most Power Ultimately between Economical power, Financial Power, and Government Power??? the one with the most power would be the one that could forsee or take over the other one if it is not ran correctly.... Once you evaluate those three Powers firts..... then I promise you that you'll come up with the answer for which City Ultimately holds the most power... and that my friends is Washington





Most Powerful City in the Nation/World Like it or not

No city has so much Power that they're above the law, but who makes the Laws???? right... the Fed Govt does... and lastly what City is Home to the Fed Govt???..... enough said... Washington calls the shots and no one else can regardless of what "kind" of power they have... if its not enough to give orders then its not as powerful than the kind of Power that Washington, DC has and thats that!!!!

No I'm not nitpicking, those areas have substantial black populations complete with gang activity... It is nothing new, I used to hang in RP 10 years ago and in both those hoods weekly.

Rogers Park
Population (2000)
- Total 63,484
- Density 34,326.3/sq mi (13,253.4/km2)
Demographics
- White 31.8%
- Black 29.6%
- Hispanic 27.8%
- Asian 6.40%
- Other 4.48%


Edgewater
Population (2000)
- Total 62,198
- Density 36,363.9/sq mi (14,040.2/km2)
Demographics
- White 47.9%
- Black 17.0%
- Hispanic 19.6%
- Asian 11.5%
- Other 9.93%


or we can go a bit south to Uptown, even more blacks... Hrrm...

Uptown
Population (2000)
- Total 63,551
- Density 27,027.3/sq mi (10,435.3/km2)
Demographics
- White 42.2%
- Black 21.1%
- Hispanic 19.9%
- Asian 12.9%
- Other 3.89%

What was that you were saying??? Why would it be less segregated than LA? LA

lets look at Chicago and LA pre ww2

City/State/Pop/Sq Miles/Density
Chicago Illinois 3,396,808 206.7 16,434
Los Angeles California 1,504,277 448.3 3,356

that should be your answer.

LA has a much different immigration pattern, 78% of LA immigration since WW2 has been hispanic.

DC belongs to us collectively, we don't belong to DC.

Most politicians do what ever they are paid to do. Money really runs the world, not politics.
