This article will bring you to the list of the most racist cities in the United States in 2017. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. We can’t speak enough about stopping racism, this is one of the most urgent issues of our society nowadays. According to FBI reports the number of hate incidents raised by 5% in 2016 reaching the number of 6,121, including 6,063 single-bias incidents and 58 multiple-bias incidents. Of all single-bias incidents, 57.5% were racially motivated, and African Americans were the most often targeted, followed by Whites and Hispanics.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the most racist cities in the United States in 2017from their list.
The first city is Charlotte, NC, where the number of crimes is 16. Charlotte has one of the lowest segregation indexes among places ranked on this list of most racist cities in the United States in 2017. The city has a total population of 842,029. African Americans account for 36% of all residents living in the city. Compared to their white neighbors, whose median household income is $76,095, black Charlotte’s families earn some $30,000 less. The next city on our list should be Pittsburgh, PA, where the number of incidents is 11. Pittsburgh is a home to 73,000 African Americans who account for 24% of city’s total population. Compared to previously mentioned Charlotte, Pittsburgh is a poorer city. White families have a median income of $54,178 and black ones only 26,853. Even more alarming is that more than one-third of black residents are struck by poverty compared to 16.6% of their white neighbors. Blacks mainly live on the east side of the city. At last, but not least we are mentioning Toledo, OH on our list, where the number of crimes is 31. Toledo is one of the smallest cities on this list of most racist cities in the United States in 2017, with a total population of 281,000. There are 76,173 African Americans living in Toledo who account for 27.2% of all residents. Of these, almost half, or more precisely 43.6% struggle in poverty, which is the greatest share among places ranked on this list. Black families have a median income of $25,109 which is some 40% less compared to the sum that white families have at their disposal.
