From the 2017 Chicago Police Department Annual Report… Confirmation Segregation Protects White Chicago Residents

Shot. [Chicago Is The Most Segregated City In America: Analysis, CBS Chicago, May 4, 2015]

Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States, while also being one of the most diverse, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data.

How can that be possible?

Because “diversity” and “segregation” are two different things, when you look at them from a city-wide level and then the neighborhood level, writes Nate Silver, the founder and editor of the Five Thirty Eight blog.

“Chicago deserves its reputation as a segregated city,” Silver writes. “But it is also an extremely diverse city. And the difference between those terms — which are often misused and misunderstood–says a lot about how millions of American city dwellers live.”

At the same time, the city is very segregated by neighborhood, where many areas on the South and West sides are overwhelmingly black. Other neighborhoods within those areas are largely Hispanic. That results in the city’s high segregation index. Overall, the city is divided almost equally into three parts: Hispanic, African-American and whites.

Chaser… Extreme segregation in 33 percent white Chicago keeps white people alive. The Chicago Police Department Annual Report for 2017 shows 97 percent of the murder victims are non-white.

Meaning: segregation keeps white people safe from the violence of black and Hispanic [80 percent of the homicide victims were black and 16 percent were Hispanic] residents of Chicago.

    Right you are, “Nate Silver”!

    One of them is disastrous for society,
    the other one saves lives.

  3. And how many of those segregated whites vote for the DEMONcrat party every election, and piss and moan about how those poor non-whites are the victims of discrimination and raaaycism? It would not be surprising to find out that a vast majority of them were frothing at the mouth that poor widdle Jussie Smollet was attacked, because it was a way to get back at orange man bad. Yet they congregate in their own segregated area, away from all the problems brought by their precious and holy die-versity? Their attitude is: diversity for thee, but not for me…

    The most segregated yet the most diverse!

    So Chicago is basically proof positive that no matter how many kinds of people you get together, they tend to naturally separate?

    This is obviously wrong. I will file a lawsuit so that when I go to Baskin Robbins 31 flavors I will notify them I will sue if they keep those 32 flavors segregated. I think Rocky Road and Strawberry should coexist in a tub of Pistachio or Butter Pecan. That’s the way it is in nature!

  8. Anon[355] • Disclaimer says:

    “Chicago’s population is almost evenly divided between non-Hispanic blacks (33 percent of its population), non-Hispanic whites (32 percent) and Hispanics (29 percent). So at a macro level, Chicago is quite diverse. At a neighborhood level, it isn’t.”

    Reminds me of “Spumoni” ice cream, with Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate are packed evenly, side by side in the box! Everyone loves this ice cream because it is an American favorite showing the deep connections in the USA between white people (Vanilla) black people (Chocolate) and the ever friendly Native American type persons represented by the Strawberry (for red).

    Nobody’s favorite ice cream is now everybody’s favorite way to describe our country, yay!

    There is no segregation here. I live where according to the numbers the vast majority of residents are white. Yet when I go out there’s blacks walking around all over the place at all hours of the day. Black panhandlers hang out day and night in front of any and all establishments. The gangbangers are shooting each other for reasons of pride and turf and so are mainly non-white, that’s true enough. However, beyond those numbers there’s a lot that doesn’t get tabulated such as having to endure the stinko bums riding public transportation endlessly, smelling everything up; crazies, mostly black, stomping around screaming on the sidewalk; the constant theft from all establishments; muggings, carjackings, etc. Quality of life goes down and everything has to be on camera. Next mayor will be black so who knows what the impact of that will be.

  12. White liberal deep rooted cuck Chicagoans don’t give damn about these stats. They’re completely oblivious to the shit that’s flushed down that giant toilet. If there ever was a place where people walk around with their heads up their ass…this is it. Any moral decent White human that did care…wouldn’t live there anyway. Chicago has been a lost cause for a long long time.

    Here is an excerpt from:

    7 Statistics You Need to Know About Black-On-Black Crime by Aaron Bandler, Dailywire July 13, 2016

    1. Data shows that 93 percent of Black homicide victims are killed by other Blacks. The Left’s rebuttal is that that 84 percent of White homicide victims are killed by other Whites, but The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley (who is Black) points out that the White crime rate is “much lower than the Black rate.”

    2. According to Riley, “Blacks commit violent crimes at 7 to 10 times the rate that Whites do.” Blacks committed 52 percent of homicides between 1980 and 2008, despite composing just 13 percent of the population. Across the same timeframe, Whites committed 45 percent of homicides while composing 77% of the population, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

    Here are some more statistics from the FBI: Over the last three years of data – 2011 to 2013 – 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were Black.

    3. Black crime is even more prevalent in the country’s largest cities and counties. Heather Mac Donald writes in her book “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law & Order makes everyone Less Safe” in Chicago, IL, Blacks committed 76 percent of all homicides, despite composing 35 percent of the city’s population. Blacks also accounted for 78 percent of all juvenile arrests. Whites, who compose 28 percent of the city’s population, committed 4 percent of its homicides and 3.5 percent of its juvenile arrests. Hispanics, who compose 30 percent of the city’s population, committed 19 percent of its homicides and 18 percent of its juvenile arrests.

    Blacks are 10 percent of the population in Los Angeles, CA, but commit 42 percent of its robberies and 34 percent of its felonies. Whites make up 29 percent of the city’s population, and commit 5 percent of its robberies and 13 percent of its felonies.

    In New York City, Blacks committed “75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime,” despite only composing 23 percent of the population, said Mac Donald in a Hillsdale speech. Additionally, 2009 Bureau of Justice Statistics numbers show that in 2009, “Blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.”

    According to this year’s statistics (2019) on heyjackass, the Chicago PD have only cleared some 11% of murders. If you want to commit murder and get away with it, take a trip to the Windy City, my friend!

  14. Off topic from the Commissar of Enlightenment and the perpetual victim hood industry. The black regime propagandists forever spread the mythology of the black victim. Look at us. We are victims. Pathetic. A millstone around the neck of civilization. A historic marker should be placed at the site of every pizza delivery driver, gas station attendant, or convenience store clerk killed by a black assailant. The Propaganda brigade forever spreads this black victim hoax all the while forbidding acknowledgement of the daily carnage and decline of the social order at their hands. Reality is ignored. Fantasy rules. What a crock.

    OT, but just heard on the news that all charges have been dropped against Jussie Smollet. They showed pics of him, his sheboon attorney and the two Nigerian simians that were part of the ploy. Amazing the chaos these people can cause.

  17. Segregation is a half-assed, illusory solution.
    Where there’s a lack of severe punishment for Negroes who harm Whites, and Whites are still shelling out trillions in welfare (aka riot insurance) then the racial headcount still decides fate. Add to that the White cucks in office who arrive pre-surrendered to Negro “activist” threats even before they’re a majority.

  18. If there’s any doubt about Chicago being a lost cause….just read the latest news on the charges being dropped on bushmaster smollett who cried racism.

  20. If the blacks and Latinos were as middle-class as the whites, there would be no problem at all. And if whites were as poor as blacks, then their murder rate would be equivalent. But you are too stupid to understand “class not race.”

  21. nik1975 says:

    I do NOT agree with your conclusion that segregation in Chicago keeps white people alive.

    In your article you quite carefully donot take into consideration the elephant in the room, namely socioeconomics.

    Is white Chicago safer because of the level of income and therefore security?

    Is this because of its whiteness or because of the higher level of security?

    Is there less crime because there is less need for crime ie a higher standard of living

    To suggest that crime levels are directly associated with the colour of someones skin is foolish and misleading… did the ebony pharoahs of ancient Egypt also have a higher level of crime in their communities.

    This article is compromised by the author and bias

    I believe that a more structural approach would have shown that the same communities living in each others footprints ie switched in physical locations and socioeconomics would gradually normalise into these statistics

  22. I’m sure most readers have heard about Smollett charges being dropped, what a travesty, even black chief is appalled. Supposedly Michelle or Mike Obama called prosecutor and influenced this, if this doesn’t say it all, I have nothing further

    The poorest White polity in the USA has a lower rate of violent crime than the richest Black polity.  It’s not class, it’s race… and you are a failed one.

  25. Truth be told, the entire country would be even more segregated if not for the law forcing negroes into our schools, places of employment and neighborhoods. No one wants to be around them as their presence is detrimental. Even liberals don’t want to be around them unless they’re gentrifying and restoring unique historic neighborhoods that previously succumbed to the black plague and they’re in the process of driving the negroes out. Of course, they’ll never admit that and will just carry on about how they’re saving the unique architecture and creating a vibrant space full of interesting shops and businesses. Even they know that too many negroes (with all their dysfunctional behaviors and violence) will kill an area by forcing everyone into a seige mentality and driving customers away.

    Once the salt of segregation is removed, the black rot sets in. It’s not just the safety of whites that suffers- everything begins to decay to the African mean and becomes a third world pesthole that no one in their right mind wants to step foot in. If what I’m saying isn’t true, show me a black area that’s known for being safe and having nice shops and restaurants and all the other features of a first world civilization. Can’t be done. OR, show me a white area that had all those things that was taken over by blacks and maintained- again, can’t be done. What you do get with a black dominated area is a crime ridden parasitical dependency that relies on the white man for everything they can’t create or provide for themselves- schools, hospitals, jobs, fire and police services etc ad infinitum. Even then, they have to go to white areas to find most of what they want or need since they certainly can’t and don’t create it or provide it for themselves.

    Bottom line- segregation protects whites from everything the black rot entails. Physical safety is just one benefit.

  26. @nik1975

    I do NOT agree with your conclusion that segregation in Chicago keeps white people alive.

    Why not?  Do you have any FACTS to the contrary?  The Rogers Park shooter in Chicago is Black and shot two White men dead.  (He still hasn’t been caught.)  He was only able to kill who he killed because segregation was not enforced.

    Facts are facts.  How you feel about them is irrelevant to their truth, and if the truth offends you you really should spend your counseling money on fixing that instead of whatever issues you think you have with your parents.

    ‘I didn’t know if I’d make it out of the house’: Habitat for Humanity workers stabbed on site of home rebuild’

    RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – Two Richmond Habitat for Humanity workers were stabbed March 23 on the work site of a home they were rebuilding.

    One of the victims, Kayla Reyes, 18, said she and her site supervisor were wrapping up construction for the day, when a man approached the home, on the 200 block of West 34th Street.

    Reyes said the man demanded money, and then pulled out a knife.

    “My mind was racing and blank at the same time,” she said.

    Reyes earned a paid apprenticeship at the Richmond branch of Habitat for Humanity, last summer. She had after graduated Thomas Dale High School, and now attends John Tyler Community College. Reyes said the Habitat for Humanity apprenticeship was a dream job that brought her closer to her goal of becoming an architect.

    “I thought it was an amazing opportunity,” she said. “You get to help the community out.”

    Reyes said the man asked about directions. She helped him by looking up an address on her phone, in the doorway of the house. She said when she turned away, the man grabbed her neck, demanding money and choking her. …

    “ebony pharaohs of ancient Egypt ” er, not sure how to break this to you, but they were never ebony. Even their pictures and hieroglyphics show them with Caucasian features.

    Smollett had three things going for him: he’s black, he’s a queer, and he lives in Chicago. There’s his black privilege at work.

  35. Trevor says:

    That is like where I live. I was actually pan-handled by a black while eating lunch at a McDonald’s (for the last time) by the city’s newest and biggest and main shopping mall.

    The parking lot of the nearest Kroger’s supermarket is known as a war zone. There are frequent shootings, muggings and drug deals as well as any other crime you could think of that can be done in a large commercial psrking lot.

    We could be talking about the same place except that we have already had a black mayor and now have a white one. It makes no difference.

    The problem is that these feral black creatures exist and are allowed to roam free anywhere anytime and accost white people who are just trying to go about their business.

    We have leash laws for dogs just to keep them from being a nuisance. But free no leash feral negroes are much worse than only a nuisance.

  36. J1234 says:

    Extreme segregation in 33 percent white Chicago keeps white people alive. The Chicago Police Department Annual Report for 2017 shows 97 percent of the murder victims are non-white.

    Meaning: segregation keeps white people safe from the violence of black and Hispanic [80 percent of the homicide victims were black and 16 percent were Hispanic] residents of Chicago.

    The black people of Chicago….oh my God. Last week we flew back from Denmark, and the contrast between the Copenhagen airport – with all of it’s associated security and customs measures – and the black employees of Chicago O’Hare (which we flew into) was more stark than all of AE’s charts and graphs combined. It was like one of Jordan Peterson’s order vs. chaos things brought to life. Black (and one Hispanic) customs people (or some other uniformed position) were screaming at each other like someone had just gotten their order wrong at the Burger King drive thru. A bored young black in uniform would yell out commands to disembarking passengers about putting carry-on items on illogically situated conveyors rather than showing them or trying to demonstrate now and then, as that would’ve required that he leave his seat. One older black guy’s job was to stand at the shuttle bus station and loudly yell, “Get on da BUS! Get on da BUS!”

    I can’t recall hearing one raised voice at the Copenhagen airport. Black employees at other airports aren’t anything like the ones in Chicago, in my experience. (BTW…I had a brand new pair of all black Sketchers – exactly like the type many TSA officers wear – stolen out of my checked baggage when we left for Denmark.)

    So, while it’s absolutely true that white lives are saved by segregation (and the common sense among whites that leads to it) in Chicago, I think Chicago blacks get on the wrong side of people (like other Chicago blacks) in a way that very few other people can. I can’t help but think that’s a large part of the murder problem there.

    There were no black pharaohs in Ancient Egypt. DNA test of the pharaohs of that period have shown them to have Mediterranean and Turkish origins. In the Sudan there were later black cultures that tried to mimic ancient Egyptian culture. This was during a period from about 740 to 650BC. This was called the Kingdom of Kush. They even built small “pyramids”. But they are nowhere near the scale and sophistication of ancient Egyptian pyramids and other related architecture. Basically the whole black pharaoh myth is an invention for the politically correct.
