  • Worst congressional districts for Black Americans

    As you might expect, these are overwhelmingly Democrat bastions. Only 5 of the 30 are represented in Congress by Republicans. The top (bottom?) district for being worst for Blacks is Ilhan Omar's 5th Minnesota one...

    Worst in what respect? I'd personally rather live around liberals than conservatives. Don't have to worry about them harassing you.

      If you read the article, you'd have the answer to that:

      Using
      data from the U.S. Census Bureau
      , 24/7 Wall St. created an index to measure socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans by congressional districts to identify the worst congressional districts for black Americans.

        Yeah I read it. It uses unemployment data which is irrelevant to politics when viewed by itself. Worst is also subjective. As I said earlier, I'd rather not live around conservatives regardless of what their unemployment rates were.

          It uses more than unemployment data. It uses income by racial group within the district and measures the disparity of that. It also looked at educational achievement. I'd say on the whole for most people those are things critical to their quality of life.

            The thing is, I can live anywhere and make the same amount of money. The political leaning of my mayor, senator and whoever else is irrelevant to my income sans taxes (which isn't being discussed).

              Isn't that like the Nazis saying the worst place to live in the Reich is the Jewish Ghettos and then blaming the Jews......

                Posters directed against the poster and not the post were removed this thread.

                Further sanctions were applied as this was a repeat offence for one member who chose to ignore previous staff warnings.

                The lesson doesn't seem to be getting though to some members here: Address the post and not the poster.
                Repeated warnings have been given on this subject in a wide range of threads so the message should be now be quite clear on what is acceptable posting behaviour.
                Sanctions will now have to be applied to those that chose to ignore this simple request.

                Thank you

                  No, because the people in her district have a choice where they live. Nobody is being forced to live there.

                  Aside from that

                    Funny how comparing someone to Stalin and Mao are not used as an insult it's only Hitler that the poorly educated seem to be aware of.
