The Queen City.

Charlotte, North Carolina.

A 45 percent white/35 percent black city (the rest of the racial breakdown largely Mexican illegal immigrants helping build new homes, high rise condos, strip malls and commercial real estate for white people escaping areas of the city overwhelmed by black crime).

2019 was a particularly violent year in the city, fueled by individual blacks collectively trying hard to live up to every negative stereotype surrounding Africans in America and violence. [A deadly year: 2019 murder rate was Charlotte’s worst in more than a decade, Charlotte Post, January 16, 2020]:

Charlotte just posted its highest murder rate in more than a decade, prompting city leaders to say the violence should be treated as a public health crisis.

The city’s rate — 11.6 homicides per 100,000 people — is the highest since 2005 and more than double the rate from just six years ago. That year, 2014, remains Charlotte’s lowest on record. The rate takes into account population growth and is one way to look at deadly violence in Charlotte over time.

This month, city leaders have raised concerns following the 88% increase in the number of homicides in 2019 — 107 — compared with 57 in 2018.

Although only 35% of the city’s population is black, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the majority — 80% — of 2019 homicide victims were black, according to the Observer’s analysis of data provided by CMPD. Of those killed, 80% were men.

Half of the victims, both men and women, were under 30 years old.

Arrests have not been made in around one-third of the 2019 murder cases. Of the 107 homicides, officers have closed about 78 cases.

Because investigations are ongoing, complete demographic information on people charged with murder is not available. Statistics from homicide cases from 2016 to 2018, however, indicate some trends, CMPD says.

90% of homicide suspects were male

85% were black

41% were between 18 and 24 years old, a segment which makes up just 10 percent of the population

Victims were usually killed by someone they knew. 10% of homicide victims were killed by a stranger

26% of suspects had been convicted of a previous felony and 41% had a past felony charge

The demographics of those killed and those arrested are similar to the national trend, UNC Charlotte’s Kuhns said. Poverty, unemployment rates and unstable housing contribute to higher crime rates, he said.

“It’s part of the nationwide pattern … There’s disproportionate victimization among minorities,” he said.


City leaders believe the city can interrupt the violence.

According to CMPD, one-fourth of homicides from 2017 to 2019 were preceded by an argument and one-fifth were domestic violence between family members or romantic partners.

In the first meeting of the Charlotte City Council this year, members said the surge in homicides is a public health crisis and that youth diversion and community-based mediation programs could be part of the solution.

“It can’t just be about policing anymore,” Lyles said. “It’s just not possible. … We want to actually figure out how to make change sustainable.”

Reversing the “cycle of violence” is possible, Putney says, but results could take years.

“I think we’re doing fantastic work that will pay dividends five and ten years down the road,” he said.

Between 2016 and 2018, 85 percent of known homicide suspects were black in Charlotte. Considering the low clearance rate in the city, it’s not hard to speculate 92-95% of homicide suspects are black, in a city where they represent only 35 percent of the population.

And those numbers don’t factor in the deadly 2019, where individual black people collectively propelled the city of Charlotte to one of its most violent in decades.

  1. Until about 50 years ago, Charlotte was a pleasant, easy-going Southern City.

    It was civilized, safe, and getting a little bit better with each passing year.

    Then that was turned around–slowly, then more quickly.

    Now it’s full of yankees, and crime, filth and blight.

    The trajectory isn’t pretty, and it’s not improving.

  2. Society used to have a sensible solution for orc crime based on pattern recognition and an understanding of their limitations.

    It was called segregation.

  3. ”Although only 35% of the city’s population is black, “ boy, if that isn’t fake news!
    I can solve the mystery for all the violence in 10 seconds, it’s a negro thing. Just tell them to keep up the good work, consider it a public service for the good of tax paying citizens.

  4. At 35% black, the city is already unlivable and unsurvivable.

    Throw the illegal element into the mix and you have a recipe for disaster.

    At best, you’ll wind up with a Chicago scenario where you have a huge tract if ‘no go’ ghetto where the black will live and die and complain about the violence they produce while live in the remainder of the city goes on. At worst, you have a Newark, Trenton, Camden scenario where the city simply devolves into a cesspool where businesses operate with the help of whites during the day but you have to clear out of by sunset.

    Thinking of it in that respect, it’s kind of like ‘sundown laws’. When whites provided sundown laws, it was to restrict the blacks so they didn’t destroy the cities. Now that blacks provide them, they are to protect the criminal class from arrest and prosecution and keep ‘whitey’ from policing the ghetto.

    How times change.

    “… the surge in homicides is a public health crisis.” That being the case, the only logical thing to do is isolate and quarantine the cause, just like you would people who have a deadly communicable disease. Here, it is black males.

    That the USA went out of its way to import as many Ebola cases as possible a few years back tells you almost everything you need to know about how effed up our society is.

    At least Trump would probably put his foot down if that were tried today. But then a federal judge would overrule him.

  7. and just a few miles to the west…….. here is what the problem is in Memphis. The negro loving white liberal woman reverend whose son gets the crap beat out of him by a pack of feral bushmasters is worried it will look bad for the blacks….. sickening.

    …but you have to clear out of by sunset.

    I was surprised the first time I encountered this way of living. I was in New Haven, CT, in 1994 on business and was picked up at the train station by my hosts. They told me about employers that let employees go home before dark, before the dindus would set up roadblocks in the street so they could stop cars and drag out the occupants to beat and rob them. Long-time white residents were trapped because the homes they had purchased had decreased so dramatically in value that they couldn’t sell them for anything but a fraction of what they had paid for them. If they were retired, they usually had too little money to flee somewhere else to start over. Some kept guns within arm’s reach in case of sudden home invasions.

    And this was considered the “new normal”?

  9. Remember that old song, “The Name Game”?

    Imagine playing that with modern African-American names!

    NC Realist——–I used to take the occasional day trip to Charlotte.The city has,or at least used to have, a couple of wonderful Dim Sum restaraunts. For day trips i now go to Tryon,Black Mountain,or Hendersonville.It’s just nice to be around White people. As for “stopping de bilence”,i recommend that Charlotte hire Planned Parenthood.At least they have a track record.

  17. Every city with a large black population is the same but when anyone tries to do anything about it, blacks start screaming that it’s racist, it’s an attack on the black community, it has disparate impact, and there’s too many black men in prison etc. Then, the lawyers, the coddlers, community organizers, rev’runs and other miscreants step in to defend blacks and to ensure that nothing changes.

    There’s going to have to come a time when no one listens to any of their complaints and all their bullshit and simply does what is necessary to put a stop to them. Otherwise, it’s business as usual- forever. It’s that simple.

    The woman, a mother of two, was raped at 10am while jogging in NW Atlanta — so with that info, you already know it’s very likely she’s white, which is verified in this video –> link.

  19. @WSG

    WSG———Women live for attention and drama.They will also say or do anything to avoid responsibility for their actions. This is as predictable as the sun rising in the east.

    I don’t think most contemporary negro names would work.

    “ Using the name Katie as an example, the song follows this pattern:

    Katie, Katie, bo-batie,
    Bonana-fanna fo-fatie
    Fee fi mo-matie
    A verse can be created for any name with stress on the first syllable, with X as the name and Y as the name without the first consonant sound (if it begins with a consonant), as follows:

    (X), (X), bo-b (Y)
    Bonana-fanna fo-f (Y)
    Fee fi mo-m (Y)
    And if the name starts with a b, f, or m, that sound simply is not repeated. For example: Billy becomes “Billy Billy bo-illy”; Fred becomes “bonana fanna fo-red”; Marsha becomes “fee fi mo-arsha”[2]

    The song gives no indication of what to do with names where the stress falls on a syllable after the first, like Renee, Maria, or Lebron.

  21. @Not Woke--Not Broke

    Woke……next time you’re in Tryon (it’s a very small town) let me know…we’ll meet up for coffee etc. We’ll figure out how to identify each other when the time comes.

  22. Reversing the “cycle of violence” is possible, Putney says, but results could take years.

    Haven’t liberals been working on this since the 60s? How many years do they need?

  23. It seems that the homicide rate continues to increase in Black cities but this trend is being completely ignored by national media.

    I am fortunate to be the mother of five children, four are white. My youngest child is 2 1/2 years old, with gorgeous, milk chocolate skin. One of my kids is transgender, the other four, (as far as we know,) are cisgender. One is pansexual, one used to identify as bisexual, now as heterosexual, one is lesbian, one is a mystery, and one has always identified as heterosexual.

    Yep…she/he/it’s gone.

    I just read the story the victim’s mother wrote from the link you provided. She is an ultra-liberal lesbian loon.

  28. @Jim in Jersey

    At 35% black, the city is already unlivable and unsurvivable.

    Way past unlivable & unsurvivable. The difference between a 35% negro city and a 45 or 55% negro city is like asking whether you would prefer to be immolated with one gallon of gasoline dumped on your head, or two.

  29. @John Johnson

    The typical whining by blacks about “the system” being broken. They will never address that “the system” is designed to work the way it does but that their unwillingness to cooperate has everything to do with it not working for them. Like the bitching that the po-lices be harrassinatin’ all their young men for no reason whatsoever. Then, when those same men/boys kill/shoot/rob/rape them or one of their family members they all of a sudden give a crap.
    These people are beyond saving. They will NEVER assimilate into first-world society because their genetics and culture make it impossible to do so for the vast majority.
