There's a severe opiod epidemic among white people in places like Staten Island, the suburbs, etc. Selling opiates on the street, and using them is very illegal.

So white people moving to mostly white neighborhoods certainly did not help them escape "crime".
Am in disagreement. Can thank the meth clinic for most of that.

Can only sing that broken tune. Those are some of the *few* middle class black areas in *ALL* of NYC.

Exactly. Corona has Lefrak City, and Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights along the 7 train has quite a bit of organized crime. Human trafficking/forced prostitution, drug dealing, etc. Of course certain conservative engaging in these activities want to pretend these are not "crimes" when they do them.

Jews and the Bronx:
-Fled the Concourse to Riverdale
-Fled Kingsbridge/Kingsbridge Heights to Riverdale
-Fled Co-op City to Riverdale

See a pattern here?
.
No, what's the pattern?

"Staten Island which some have dubbed "Heroin Island" has been in crisis over opioid addiction for nearly a decade. As elected officials and law enforcement fight to turn the tide, the number of fatal overdoses continue to climb to record highs, tearing families and communities apart.

Currently, more people die in the city from overdoses than homicides."

Citywide more people are dying of overdoses, and Staten Island has been called Heroin Island........

So again moving to all white neighborhoods doesn't save white people at all. Overdosing is the leading cause of death. Not homicides.

Not true.
Brooklyn also has low crime black neighborhoods: East Flatbush, Flatlands, and Canarsie.

Lefrak City is mostly Black, and Roosevelt av mostly Hispanic.

Alcohol has destroyed more lives than all drugs put together.

Black people use alcohol at lower rates than white people, on average.

Black and white people use drugs at identical rates.

I absolutely agree with this.
There is an undercurrent in some white working- and middle-class neighborhoods that is very unhealthy.
Some families are riddled with alcohol and substance abuse.
More than you will find in any black or Hispanic family.

"At least 107 people died from overdoses in the borough last year, the highest number on record and a 35 percent increase from 2015, according to Oddo and the Department of Health. Officials expect the number to climb as high as 119 when the final data gets released later this year."

The great white Staten Island, look at the overdoses. It's getting worse than ever.

So things can't be that good if essentially people are committing suicide.
