Once again. The point is not that those areas exist. As I said they exist in too many areas of our country.

The Racist part is when those words are only used by our President to describe Democrat led areas that are predominantly of color. Let me know when he uses those words to describe a similar neighborhood led by a Republican in a mostly white district

Our friends were on a family road trip and stopped in Baltimore for two hours to eat a meal on their way to DC. Their car was broken into and all their luggage and personal items - even their baby seat - was stolen while they were inside the restaurant. CCTV footage showed three black teens breaking a window and expertly stripping the car of its contents in less than a minute.

Even their god damn baby seat. That’s the kind of city Baltimore is.

That is a valid point, but was her statement any more truthful than Trump's. ?

Most White Men are not responsible for mass shooting, but some are.
Most of Baltimore is not a dump, but some of it is...

If you take off your political hat and you are being honest with yourself, either both statements are racist or both aren't!

Unsurprising. I have a parking pad at my rowhouse. My car has been broken into no less than seven times in the six years since I've lived at this address. When I lived on Clarkson Street over by M&T bank stadium (where the ravens play), my Saturn was STOLEN on Christmas Day.


I've not yet been robbed, knock on wood, but it's only a matter of time if I remain in this dump.

That evening, our city councilman was attending a symposium on "The Rise of White Supremacy in South Baltimore." I wish I was joking but I'm not.

I get it that Baltimore is dangerous. But for what its worth, my sister lives off of Fort, near Riverside Park, and that neighborhood is blue collar and completely safe.

Also, for what it is worth, the neighborhood is almost entirely white. It's the strangest thing, almost like segregation still exists, in some mysterious way. But I walk, jog, and have moved around the neighborhood for the past 15 years and never once felt unsafe.

What's cute is that you ignore reality and live in the land of rainbows and unicorns.
I already proved to you that's it's going up under Trump now. You clearly didn't read the link. Go troll somewhere else

Your link is two years old. Try to keep up. Out of the last 10, per left wing Mother Jones, 3 have been black, 3 Latino and 4 were white.

Orkin's list of the top-50 "rattiest cities" are just about all (if not all) run by Democrats!


Nothing "racist" about it. Facts are facts. Take a look at the list:
