The goverment has alot to do with it by not allowing a family to receive welfare if there is a man in the house. I think the govt "meant well" to help people "get back on their feet", but the unintended consequences were women choosing not to marry and they started having babies with different men, so they get more govt benefits and child support from each daddy who very seldom comes around.

A lot of the problem with all of America and its crime ridden cities is the pressure to have children and families. Both the males and females are angry. Neither side wants the other and would be better off single and childless. The fact that the women are having babies for the government benefits - just enough to buy lots of fattening unhealthy foods and other useless stuff - is enough proof of incompatibility with others and deeper psychological issues. The fact that the males do not care at all what happens to them or the children they put out there also proves more is wrong than simply being angry, and again, deep psychological issues.

I didn't realize that welfare isn't given to a household with a man in it. I thought it was based on income (or lack thereof) and size of household, without regard to gender of the adults living there.

So much deflection and dodging. New Orleans is violent because blacks have relatively high violent crime rates in the U.S.

Figure out how to solve that and New Orleans’ violent crime rate along with that of other cities with high rates of violent crime will drop dramatically. Based on similar socio-economic status, single parent homes, rates of violent crime of non-blacks are nowhere near the same.

I assume it's still in effect, but back in the 1960's and 1970's when there was a "war on poverty" and public welfare was getting popular, the rule was if a woman is married or has a man living with her, she would not be eligible to receive welfare. The thinking of the day was if a woman is married, then it's the responsibility of the husband to provide for his wife and family. A married family could get food stamps and sub-sidized rent, but not eligible for welfare. An able-bodied male was not eligibe to receive welfare. Men are expected to work. That's why there are so many women having babies that are born out of wedlock. They are playing the system. More babies with multiple daddies means more welfare benefits and child support checks each month from each baby daddy. They make more money like that than if she was to go out and find a job.

Wow, I didn't realize all the "unintended" consequences of the welfare system. I'm surprised the law hasn't been changed in the last 50 years in this regard.

Touristy places generally have higher crime. Mardi Gras is especially bad with every criminal in the country coming in for the season.

How can both of these things be true, and if so what causes them?
People predisposed to violence, no home guidance, no father, and little chance of repercussions if caught.

Just like Newark, Baltimore, and Washington DC. All governed by lenient Democrat Mayors.
