Is that before or after Houston inherited so many transplants from New Orleans after Katrina?

Are we disregarding danger due to motor vehicle accidents? In many/most cases, your risk of injury/death by MVA is significantly higher than your risk of being an innocent bystander victim of homicide. (No doubt participants in the drug trade have a higher risk of homicide, but this is an avoidable risk.)

Contrary to popular belief, exurbs more dangerous than cities

The difference is location. Many poor blacks are located in high-density urban neighborhoods where the poverty is of a concentrated nature. Eastern Kentucky is low-density, dispersed, and rural. As former Albuquerque mayor David Rusk said in his book Inside Game, Outside Game, "Living in poverty is tough enough for any household, regardless of race. For the great majority of poor whites, however, poverty is an individual household condition. Most poor whites are not surrounded by other poor people. For most poor blacks, and, to a lesser degree, for poor Hispanics, poverty is a communal crisis, as well as an individual hardship."

Interesting point. Also, I suspect that the networks, family and otherwise present in certain areas/regions more than in other places.
