2021’s Stratospheric Murder Rates In America’s Five Blackest Cities

If the term systemic racism were thrown around one time, it would be too much. As it is, the word has joined the list of once emotionally-powerful words that now mean absolutely nothing through sheer overuse. It joins the brotherhood of other terms like racism, white supremacist, Nazi, and Jim Crow. To be sure, the origins of those words are horrific; they just mean nothing in a modern context.


While hideous, there is a panache leftists have with language. Systemic language means nothing and everything at once.


A recent article at The Blue State Conservative looked at ten additional ways the Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo could have swatted away the insidious racism manifested by Marc Lamont Hill in a recent interview. Until most Americans are armed with debate techniques and focused repartes, the emotional appeals of leftism will continue to hold sway over most good-but-ignorant folks. In terms of systemic racism, an obvious rebuttal comes by looking at who exactly runs the show. If the systems are bad, why not look at the leaders of such a system?


Democrats are in charge of all of the most murderous cities in the United States. In terms of total population, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Houston are the biggest black cities in America. It is in these cities – not rural white cities home to white Supremacist Trump supporters – that blacks are exposed to the highest rate of murder and sheer number of murders. According to the FBI, over 90% of these murders come at the hands of another black. In other words, white supremacy is a fraud and total boogeyman.


The following chart breaks down the five cities with the highest total of black residents and explores the relationship between the make up of the police force and the rising death totals due to murder. 


Total Black Population Total Murders in 2021 YTD Increase in Murder Rate  Racial Makeup of Police Force
5. Houston 536,000 190 (as of May 31) 28% 63% non-white
4. Detroit 611,000 327 (for 2020*) 19%* 67% non-white
3. Philadelphia 687,000 219 (as of June 1) 34% 43% non-white
2. Chicago 913,000 227 (as of May 18) 18.8% 50% non-white
1. New York 2,228,000 173 (as of June 1) 17.7% 57% non-white


The next table shows the five citries with the highest murder rate in the United States, followed by a breakdown of their racial demographics. One of the chief problems within the black community is not white supremacy or systemic racism, as the political left charges, but itself.  


Black Percent of Population Murder Rate per 100,000 residents Rank of Murder Rate in Country Year of Last Republican Mayor
5. Baltimore 65% 58.27  #2 1967
4. Birmingham  74.1% 50.62 #3 1975
3. Miami Gardens 77.9% 23.64 #12 N/A
2. Jackson 80.1% 50.48* N/A* 1949
1. Detroit 84.3% 41.45 #4 1962

*Jackson was left off the CBS list due to population size. The national murder rate is around 5.5 per 100,000.


Systemic racism demands that the systems are at fault for black community failures such as exponentially worse results in school (testing data, graduation, college enrollment, etc) and criminality (responsible for most interacial crime, most violent crime, incarceration rates, etc.). Blaming the system is a Marxist approach for taking blame off the individual. It is the opposite of the Judeo-Christian philosophy that helped shape the United States from its inception. 


The blaming of systems of what are inherent flaws in moral consciousness and human nature also explains why leftism seeks to expand its governmental role; humans, particularly black humans, can’t find their own way according to leftists. Joe Biden previously had said that poor kids are just as good as white kids and now just commented that black entrepreneurs are just as capable as white entrepreneurs – they just don’t know how to get a lawyer or accountant. These two comments are more racist than anything Donald Trump has said in his entire life.


As it were, it seems disingenuous to blame the system that they’ve had a monopoly on. Joe Biden is a Democrat, as is his entire cabinet and the entire Deep State. That is the federal system. If there are flaws, they must own them. Local and state leadership fare no better in these third-world American cities. 


In New York, in addition to the self-serving, incompetent leaders like Bill De Blasio and Andrew Cuomo, the city of New York itself is served by a city council in which just three out of fifty-one seats are held by Republicans. Twenty-three members alone comprise the Black, Latino, and Asian caucus. The systems are, and have been, overwhelmingly Democrat controlled.


In Chicago, the numbers are even worse. There are fifty alderman seats. Of those, twenty are held by members of the Aldermanic Black Caucus and forty-six by Democrats overall. The remaining four are held by affiliated Independents. This means that for the entire city of Chicago, there is not a single Republican elected official on the entire city council structure


Systemically speaking, Philadelphia is one the blackest cities in America. It is currently represented by a black mayor, a city council that is half minority, a black police chief, and a police force that is just 37% white. Everyone in a position of power and authority is and has been black. Systemic failures? Blame the black Democrats. The city last had a Republican mayor in 1952.


Systemic racism does not exist in the United States. This is an obvious truth. However, if leftist pawns and useful idiots want to believe in such nonsense, the only logical place of blame is toward the Democrat party. A good place to begin dismantling systemic racism would be voting for something else. Until that changes, nothing will change.

  2. If one wants to look at “systemic” problems/causes, look first to the welfare state which incentivizes fatherlessness, which is a recipe for all kinds of social maladies, including homicide. Why is it that this crucial factor seems to be almost always left out of these kinds of discussions. google Baltimore 2015 CNN Lord of the Flies John Blake

  3. Lamont Hill claims that White people are so diabolically clever that they can program black men to kill one another by remote control & blacks are so dumb & malleable that they must irresistibly comply. David Duke wouldn’t have the nerve to make such a claim.

  4. POster said,”Blacks killing blacks no longer bothers me.” I concur. I simply can’t be bothered to care about something that they themselves don’t care about. My wife is black and I white. Our two girls are mixed. We’re Americans…. I will never allow them to their race on a government form ever.

  5. Has this occurred to anybody this is just Planned Parenthood 2? If you can’t kill them in the womb, have the just kill each other until the race is wiped out? One way or another, right?

  6. The dems and leftits do not just mock patriotism and nationalism. They delegitimize their own country.

    For example, biden says that America’s very soul is stained by ongoing systemic racism. biden’s U.N. ambassador claims that white supremacy is weaved into our founding principles. kamala harris asserts that black women die in childbirth due to systemic racism.

    How stupid and ignorant can people be?

    If America were “systemically” racist like these idiots claim, then black Americans would be emigrating. That is what persecuted people always do, when not restrained.

    Instead, black Africans have been immigrating to the United States by the millions.

  7. In 1997, Time/CNN conducted a survey, asking black teens whether racism was a big problem, small problem or no problem in their daily lives.

    89% said small or no problem. In fact, nearly twice as many black teens, compared to white teens, agreed that “failure to take advantage of available opportunities” was a bigger problem than racism.

  8. In 1991, black Democrat and Harvard sociologist Orlando Patterson said: “The sociological truths are that America is now the least racist white-majority society in the world; has a better record of legal protection of minorities than any other society, white or black; offers more opportunities to a greater number of black persons than any other society, including all those of Africa.”

  9. Systemic racism is a lie.

    If true, there would be no black/POC pro-sport players, politicians (POTUS and VPOTUS), judiciary, entertainers, entrepreneurs and countless others employed in every conceivable industry at every conceivable position and wage level. There are many black/POC millionaires and some billionaires.

    This would be ‘impossible’ to occur if systemic racism was embedded within the USA.

    You will not find another country that has given full opportunity to everyone equally as the USA.

    BTW: A former slave started a car company in 1915

  10. There is nothing new in this article, it has all of the same “truth”, as similar articles have had for nearly a half-century.

  11. The “racial whine” equals “WOLF, WOLF, WOLF”. The racial WHINERS have cried “WOLF, WOLF, WOLF” to the point that it’s IGNORED by non-racial whiners as a valid cry of abuse. And the racial whiners are too stupid to realize that the racial whine has become a DISGUSTING TURN OFF for the rest of us. We simply DON’T BELIEVE THEM because of the “WOLF, WOLF, WOLF” syndrome that makes them constantly and FALSELY whine the “racial whine”.

  12. The existential situation within America’s cities is in a grave crisis. Now Biden wants to populate the suburbs with low income multi-housing to shift the politics of the nuclear family neighborhoods. Every neighborhood in America needs to be introduced and indoctrinated on the joys of inner city life.
