    Funny, considering Obama is his own worst enemy when it comes to "pinning things on Obama".

    All I can do is point out the obvious and multiple malfeasance that has defined his tenure. I mean the place IS called " Political Debate"

    The cities you compared are big cities in one list, and suburbs in another. It's an inaccurate comparison. The fact that you don't know that those were suburbs is not my problem.

    In your quote of me, you went back to this post:

    Now, I challenge everybody to go back to my post and find this sentence:

    I think a more relevant and helpful question is what perpetuates that culture, because I KNOW you can't be blaming the current conditions of places like Detroit on " the man" or "whitey".

    Not when other cultures have shown up here without the ability to speak our language ( Vietnamese in the 70's and 80's ) and have managed to put poverty and crime behind them.

A big fuss was made over my arrival and I never for a moment felt unsafe.

    The USA is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and there are opportunities everywhere, though it seems that many are unable to see them. There is no reason to murder other people because of poverty, not with the amount of food stamps now being handed out to anyone who wants them. The difference between the White suburbs and the Black inner cities is education, and that's where the governments failures have been most evident.
    There's not as much crime in poor countries because there isn't much to steal. In your Guatemalan town, what was anyone going to steal?

    You're right about education - rich white kids get a better education than poor black kids. It's not even up to the level of "separate but equal." It's separate and unequal.

    They aren't "suburbs". They are their own municipalities. They have their own jurisdictions and their own self government.

    The fact remains. Majority black cities have the most crime compared to majority white.

    I notice you don't even try to address the premise but instead prevaricate and evade.

    In countries like this it is the people in power who steal the most but, in any case, there is always something to steal. I drove through Central America where most everyone was poor but some places I had to guard everything while I gassed up and in other places, even in the same country, I felt absolutely comfortable and the people were more than helpful. That suggests changes of culture, even in areas not far from each other. Such as in suburbs and inner cities perhaps. And 'education', btw, doesn't just mean public schooling. It also means that you grow up knowing the difference between right and wrong.

    You're right about education - rich white kids get a better education than poor black kids. It's not even up to the level of "separate but equal." It's separate and unequal.
    Which is why school vouchers would help change this situation.

    Absolutely. But I can just about guarantee that any attempt to rectify this awful mistake will be met with cries of "Racist!"

    .
    Yes, most suburbs are their own municipalities. Congratulations on your grasp of the basic structure of government. The fact remains that these are suburbs.

    Amherst, NY for instance:

    The largest and most populous suburb of Buffalo, New York, the town of Amherst encompasses most of the village of Williamsville and the hamlets of Eggertsville, Getzville, Snyder, Swormville, and East Amherst. The town is in the northern part of the county and borders a small section of the Erie Canal.
    Amherst, New York - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I know Amherst, my Grandparents lived there. Calling is a suburb is not "evading" it's a simple fact, which anyone who knows anything about it could tell you.
