Because people are interested, for once, in crime statistics due to election red vs. blue arguments, I made up a list of the 100 counties with the most Hispanics (all at least 6 figures) and ranked them by the annual Hispanic homicide victimization rate per 100,000 Hispanics over 2018-2021.

The worst Hispanic homicide rate is Philadelphia County, PA at 20.9, which appears to be due to a combination of Puerto Ricans (see also #9 Hampden County, MA which is fairly Puerto Rican Springfield), shooty black gangs, and DA Larry Krasner.

The counties at the bad end of the list tend to be in blue states, but I wouldn’t swear there is a casual correlation. In truth, this topic is pretty new to me so I’m in exploratory mode here

The best Latino homicide rate is idyllic suburban Westchester County, NY at 1.8. (The bottom of the list is affluent suburbs/exurbs such as #99 Collin TX north of Dallas, home to Plano and Frisco.)

The list is pretty idiosyncratic with quite a few different apparent factors. For example, having a lot of violent blacks, such as #1 Philadelphia, #6 Milwaukee, and #14 Cook (Chicago) Counties appears to contribute to higher Hispanic victimization rates, probably due both to more Hispanics being murdered by blacks and (more speculatively) Hispanics being more likely to form gangs to fight blacks there. A strange case is #10 Prince George’s County, MD at 10.0. What type of Latinos are these?

The second worst Hispanic homicide victimization rate is Bernalillo County, NM (Albuquerque) at 18.1. I’ve never really understood why Albuquerque tends to have worse social statistics than its demographics would imply, while, down the Rio Grande, El Paso tends to have better. (I get a vague impression that Hispanic homicide victimization tolls often are higher where Hispanics fight American Indians or Pacific Islanders a lot, but it’s a pretty obscure topic.)

Then comes El Paso County, CO (15.7), which confused me at first because I read in Time Magazine in 1971 that El Paso has a low murder rate due to the lithium in the ground water. But that’s sedate #62 El Paso County, TX (4.2), whereas El Paso, CO is third. Its county seat is Colorado Springs, which I associate with Evangelicals and the Air Force Academy. Denver County is #8 at 10.3 and Pueblo County, CO, which doesn’t make the top 100 is at 14.3, so something appears to be wrong with Colorado Latinos in general.

Then comes #4 Kern County (Bakersfield) at 14.4.

In contrast, Southern California counties are not terribly high ranking, such as #29 Los Angeles at 7.2 and #72 San Diego at 3.7. (San Diego County has the same pretty good rate as Miami-Dade, FL.) I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of Bakersfield’s problems are due to people who can’t afford Los Angeles or San Diego anymore moving there.

When pundits wonder why America has such high home prices, don’t forget that letting housing costs rise is just about the surest way to solve local social problems by handing your problem people off to be somewhere else’s hot potato.

Then rural Yakima WA at #5 (13.4), which I didn’t see coming. I don’t know much of anything about Yakima County.

  1. The best is idyllic suburban Westchester County, NY at 1.8

    Hometown of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

  2. The Worst and Best Counties for Hispanic Homicides

    Strange. Can’t find it online, but..

    I swear I read an article in the ’90s with that exact same title in Condé Nast Traveler.

  3. Yakima is like Kern County except with 20 inches of snow per year. Very ag-oriented going back well over a century. And both have a fairly high number of descendants from Dust Bowl era migrants, who in turn can be traced back to the Appalachians – the shootiest of white populations. Mexicans have been in both counties for a long time, and likely just followed along with the established cultural norms – disputes are settled with fists and firearms.

    Well, if PG County is like the rest of the Washington metro, it’s got about 20 million Salvadorans, 10 million Hondurans, and 6 million Guatemalans.

    Yeah so I rounded up. You wanna make something of it?

    Kevin McCarthy’s district is based around Bakersfield and has the highest Republican vote in California. Still lots of oil drilling in the area. It is a setting for the early Jack Nicholson movie Five Easy Pieces and doesn’t look very glamorous. Yakima is in WA-4, which has the highest Republican vote of any house seat in a West Coast state.

  7. OT, but the celebrity “historian” Michael Beschloss has finally gone over the edge:


    Note everyone: if you vote for the GOP on Tuesday, “a historian fifty years from now” will blame you for our children being “arrested and conceivably killed.”

    He believes it.

    And people think the QAnon loons are nuts!!

    It is really quite encouraging: the overclass is truly frightened.

    Of course, a GOP victory on Tuesday will not really change anything.

    But the USA is now in a “pre-revolutionary situation,” which I think is what has Beschloss really frightened.

    No one can tell when or what the spark will be.

    In 1917, it was the burdens that WW I imposed on the Russian people. In 1789, it was the calling of the Estates General over the fiscal crisis of the French state. And in the 1770s, it was the attempt by the Crown to seize Patriot war materiel at Concord in April of 1775, which in turn was the ultimate result of the Patriots turning Boston Harbor into a teapot in December 1773.

    What will the spark be in twenty-first century America? A collapse of the Ponzi scheme that constitutes our monetary-financial system? Fiscal collapse of the federal government? The overclass going to war with China and China sending several US carriers to the bottom?

    No one knows until it happens. But perhaps Mikey Beschloss is right to be very worried, though for very different reasons than he claims.

    “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; …”

    If there’s one point to take away, it’s this. Our celebrities are being actively “managed” by handlers, who operate behind the scenes. It seems that a secret society runs the country from the shadows, but utilizes various prominent figures (celebrities, politicians, military generals, corporate executives, etc) as frontmen.

    Celebrities are weak-willed and dimwitted enough to be handled by personal trainers. To control the shrewder types of prominent people (such as politicians and military generals), you probably need sexual blackmail to keep them in line. That’s when you bring in people like Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and Leslie Wexner.

    Is Ye really this clueless? It looks that way from his message, which displays about an 8th grade level of spelling and punctuation.

    Let me explain it to you, Ye. If you complain about the business practices of Mr. So-and-So (who happens to be Jewish), that's fine. If you complain about the business practices of "the Jews", that's anti-Semitic. That wasn't hard, was it?

    These people were not controlling him. They were trying to save him from his own stupidity. If they were able to control him, Ye would not have just cost himself a billion $.

    Can't Ye say whatever he wants? Don't we have free speech? Sure. If Ye wants to stand on a street corner in Times Square and rant against the Jews like the "Black Hebrew Israelites" he has the Constitutional right to do so.

    Not so much the blackmail as the underage/infantilization aspect.

    Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell (like her father before her) were intelligence assets for Israel, organized crime and likely certain elements of US intelligence. They were not in the business of blackmailing hyper zionist Jewish billionaires, like Wexner. Wexner funded the espionage operation for the benefit of Israel and the Jewish community (or at least Wexner's interpretation thereof). Wexner is allegedly part of the MEGA Group of Jewish billionaires who coordinate to benefit Israeli interests. Wexner was funding the operation, not a victim of it.

    Epstein and Maxwell were likely successors to the Roy Cohn sexual blackmail operations of the mid Twentieth Century.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTrHL7Vo_SQ

    There have been rumors for years that Wexner may have had a relationship with Epstein, I have seen no serious evidence. Just a lot of rumors. Abercrombie & Fitch used to promote excessively homoerotic imagery in their advertising, but that does not prove Wexner was gay only that he tolerated gay imagery in order to promote his brands to middle America teens. I wonder if this advertising encouraged more homosexuality in American youth. On the flip side, Wexner also owned Victoria's Secret. Wexner is married and extremely Orthodox in his religious affiliation, but I guess you never know.

    There are also rumors that Wexner is affiliated with some pretty tough hombres so he does not strike me as the sort of person you would want to double-cross. If anything, Epstein seems to me as an expendable poseur or an actor, like many a spy, Wexner is a Boss.

    There’s no assumption, just “fact” on the part of Johnny Walker and clifford brown that “a secret society runs the country from the shadows” and “Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell (like her father before her) were intelligence assets for Israel, organized crime and likely certain elements of US intelligence”.

    Its too bad you’re resorting to the “well, they’re entitled to their opinion but that’s not really what happened here, but I won’t say directly confront them because they’re useful idiots” approach. That’s the problem—increasing numbers of the Coalition of the Right Fringe are going hog wild with dressing up these wild speculations as truth.

    Too many people are getting sucked into the Fake News vortex. But then again you facilitate it and receive financial consideration along the way, so in the end why would you want to take partial ownership. Maybe, just maybe, you’re going to start waking up four days before our mid term elections to NOTICE.

    Why assume that Wexner, a genius at marketing clothes to women, was in league with Epstein as sexual blackmailers, rather than that Wexner was being sexually blackmailed by Epstein? Or that Wexner just had a crush on Epstein, which seems like a plausible explanation of why Wexner gave Epstein a mansion.

    Replies: @Desiderius, @clifford brown, @Corvinus

    Not so much the blackmail as the underage/infantilization aspect.

    Look at the women he used (in more ways than one) to do the “marketing” and how they’re depicted.

    He was vulnerable because he was likely into that part as well.

    BTW Bakersfield is where Merle Haggard is from. Still proud to be an Okie.

  22. I have lived in Yakima for a decade now. Despite being one of the top agricultural counties in the U.S (which is why the county is Hispanic majority) it is not rural. The Census classifies Yakima as a metropolitan area.

    The reason the Hispanic homicide rate is so high is this is the Northwestern hub for cartels and Mexican gangs. The homicides here are almost exclusively Hispanic gang on gang.

It seems that a secret society runs the country from the shadows, but utilizes various prominent figures (celebrities, politicians, military generals, corporate executives, etc) as frontmen.

    Celebrities are weak-willed and dimwitted enough to be handled by personal trainers. To control the shrewder types of prominent people (such as politicians and military generals), you probably need sexual blackmail to keep them in line.

  26. Anon[367] • Disclaimer says:

    The reason that Philadelphia County (which is the same thing as the City of Philadelphia) has a high Hispanic homicide rate is that the Papis run the lucrative Kensington drug trade. They hand corners in Fairhill and West Kensington down to their son’s like real estate. Blacks are minor dealers in some parts of the Badlands but they’re not trusted by the Papis or the mostly white addicts. I will say that the Ricans run that shit like a business and don’t commit violence for violence’s sake and are smarter than blacks, but it is at it’s core a violent, ugly business. As a kid I always found it funny in a HBD way that even with all the bullshit we got told in school about Black Greatness, Excellence, etc etc, blacks aren’t even in charge of the drug trade in a black city like Philly. Signed, a real Kenzo who got out.

    I don't feel like looking up the stats (you can do that as well as I) but my overall impression is that PA leans older than other states because people are born and die here. No one moves in and no one moves out. The population of Philly declined by about 25% from 1950 to 2000 (from 2M to 1.5M). Since then there was a very slight uptick until the Year of Floyd/Covid and now it's falling again slightly.

    This leads to different demographics than a place like say Phoenix, AZ which has slightly more people than Philly now but had 100,000 people in 1950. What you call a "bright point" is really a sign of a declining city that fails to attract new residents.

    Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell (like her father before her) were intelligence assets for Israel, organized crime and likely certain elements of US intelligence. They were not in the business of blackmailing hyper zionist Jewish billionaires, like Wexner. Wexner funded the espionage operation for the benefit of Israel and the Jewish community (or at least Wexner’s interpretation thereof). Wexner is allegedly part of the MEGA Group of Jewish billionaires who coordinate to benefit Israeli interests. Wexner was funding the operation, not a victim of it.

    Epstein and Maxwell were likely successors to the Roy Cohn sexual blackmail operations of the mid Twentieth Century.

    There have been rumors for years that Wexner may have had a relationship with Epstein, I have seen no serious evidence. Just a lot of rumors. Abercrombie & Fitch used to promote excessively homoerotic imagery in their advertising, but that does not prove Wexner was gay only that he tolerated gay imagery in order to promote his brands to middle America teens. I wonder if this advertising encouraged more homosexuality in American youth. On the flip side, Wexner also owned Victoria’s Secret. Wexner is married and extremely Orthodox in his religious affiliation, but I guess you never know.

    There are also rumors that Wexner is affiliated with some pretty tough hombres so he does not strike me as the sort of person you would want to double-cross. If anything, Epstein seems to me as an expendable poseur or an actor, like many a spy, Wexner is a Boss.

    Yakima is like Kern County except with 20 inches of snow per year. Very ag-oriented going back well over a century. And both have a fairly high number of descendants from Dust Bowl era migrants, who in turn can be traced back to the Appalachians - the shootiest of white populations. Mexicans have been in both counties for a long time, and likely just followed along with the established cultural norms - disputes are settled with fists and firearms.

  40. The reason why Los Angeles and San Diego county “seem” lower in Hispanic crime is because those counties still have millions of whites each, and Los Angeles county in particular has many wealthy enclaves where Hispanics are seldom seen or quickly apprehended by the police if they’re around. It’s also lower in San Francisco because San Francisco is 30% Asian and only 14% Hispanic. Los Angeles is still surprisingly about 1/3 white, and San Diego is about 50% white — with many in the military and/or more Conservative.

    Make no mistake though, Hispanics commit the overwhelming majority of crimes in the non-wealthy parts of LA County, like Inglewood, Compton, Hollywood, Long Beach, Pasadena, etc. I’ve spent a lot of time in California, and I can tell you that it’s pretty darn scary in about 75% of Los Angeles county, and it’s not at all the black criminality you’d expect in places like Baltimore. The black population in LA County has been shrinking for over 40 years, and they’re really only concentrated in the southern part of the county.

    Much of the Hispanic crime in California is in places like Bakersfield, San Bernardino, Fresno, and Stockton. Because those areas not only have so few whites left, but they never really had much wealth or wealthy areas either. Hispanics are also much larger in percentages there, like 45-55% instead of the usual 20-30% in the other California cities.

    The whites in the district are overwhelmingly Republican and the large Hispanic population hardly votes at all.

    Steve- great tables. Thanks again.

    Comparing the black to the Hispanic tables:

    You have to go down to number 70 on the black list to match the worst on the Hispanic list.

    Good lord. Black folks are just a disaster.

    Hispanics come here quite poor, without knowing much of our language and culture. And yet, out the chute they are much less troublesome and will be heading into the middle class in a generation or two.

    Black folks: you are just an embarrassment.

    (Side note: looked at Hampden, Ma and this is western Mass, Springfield area. Looks pretty bad. Drivers appear to be almost 20% Puerto Ricans and 10% black.

    Not sure why the PRs are so awful compared to other Hispanics, but they seem to be. Probably makes sense to grant Puerto Rico its independence).

    MA also has a heavy share of folks from the Dominican Republic and they don’t seem to be doing too well, either).

    Mestizo rates of use of gov’t redistribution programs don’t change much after two generations. Puerto Ricans are a strong admixture of Spaniards, Africans, and Caribe cannibals.

  50. Sitting here in my corner of #48…

    We no longer have enough blacks in the county to matter. East Palo Alto and the scroungier bits of Menlo Park are now Hispanic to the extent they’re not Facebook gentrified. Unincorporated areas around Redwood City getting there but they’ve been primarily Hispanic.

    I sometimes bike through there enroute to breakfast on weekends…would never have even considered it fifteen years ago.

    North Central San Mateo was usually the locus for Hispanic crime in the area, but even that is substantially gentrified now.

    My little bayside burg has surprisingly few Hispanics (could use more, really) more dot-not-feather Indians. Damn near everyone around here (including us) is a mixed couple in some form.

    I have lived in Yakima for a decade now. Despite being one of the top agricultural counties in the U.S (which is why the county is Hispanic majority) it is not rural. The Census classifies Yakima as a metropolitan area.

    The reason the Hispanic homicide rate is so high is this is the Northwestern hub for cartels and Mexican gangs. The homicides here are almost exclusively Hispanic gang on gang.

    Downtown Yakima is a gang-ruled hellhole. Congratulations on surviving 10 years there. The streets are empty; people are afraid to go outside. After the Norteños shot up the house across the street, I was out. Learned a lot.
