Is Seattle the White Ghetto of America?

Update:

Its like 98% White in Seattle and every single day Seattle Washington stays in the news for white crimes. Shootings, stabbings, robberies, car chases all done by whites like this one

Why is Seattle washington like the White version of Baltimore, Maryland?. It's also the suicide capital of the world. Is this what happens when you have nothing but Whites living in an urban neighborhoods?. I thought that was only supposed to be a "Black thing".

Update 2:

These are Whites doing these crimes. Not blacks. You can clearly see they're Blankly White in every single footage caught on tape lol.

Update 3:

The monthly crime stats are huge for a city that is 70% White.

    Yes. New yorkers are surprised to see what they see when they come visit Seattle. Downtown has a lot of homelessness, drug problems and public drunks. Anywhere where there's poverty there's crime. That goes for a predominantly poor White city also. Color has nothing to do with. Except for the color of money. If you don't have the greens.

    Its listed as #2 out of 100. With 100 being the safest. FBI Crime data:

    "With a crime rate of 69 per one thousand residents, Seattle has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is 1 in every 14 people. Within Washington, more than 95% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Seattle.

    Separately, it is always interesting and important to compare a city's crime rate with those of similarly sized communities - a fair comparison as larger cities tend to have more crime. CrimeData has done just that. With a population of 668,342, Seattle has a combined rate of violent and property crime that is very high compared to other places of similar population size. Regardless of whether Seattle does well or poorly compared to all other cities and towns in the US of all sizes, compared to places with a similar population, it fares badly. Few other communities of this size have a crime rate as high as Seattle.

    The crime data that CrimeData used for this analysis are the seven offenses from the uniform crime reports, collected by the FBI from 18,000 local law enforcement agencies, and include both violent and property crimes, combined.

    For Seattle, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. According to CrimData's analysis of FBI reported crime data, your chance of becoming a victim of one of these crimes in Seattle is one in 166.

    In addition, CrimeData found that a lot of the crime that takes place in Seattle is property crime. Property crimes that are tracked for this analysis are burglary, larceny over fifty dollars, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In Seattle, your chance of becoming a victim of a property crime is one in 16, which is a rate of 63 per one thousand population.

    Importantly, we found that Seattle has one of the highest rates of motor vehicle theft in the nation according to our analysis of FBI crime data."

  • No I live in Washington state and I've been up there several times. It's not a ghetto.

    Great city. Wish I could afford to live there. Did live there for a couple of years. Best bars, restaurants, libraries, public transportation and people.

    Certainly not. Even their riots [few as they are] are racially diverse.

    Go visit the Rainier District if you want to see the "Black" neighborhood. There are plenty of other races too there.
