Why so many black homeless in major cities?

Why is every major city in America swarming with homeless black people. I live in Los Angeles and seriously a tleast 90% of the homeless people i see are black.The same is true in most of America’s other major cities, i.e. New York, Baltimore, Atlanta, Oakland, New Orleans, Cleveland, Detroit, etc.etc. etc. Its shocking to see such a strong homeless presence from a minority that only takes up 13% of the population.



“we are a broken city right now.”

Seattle is “broken” as much as Detroit is booming. We have a stunningly low unemployment, incredible job growth, crime that’s overwhelmingly down or steady, and major investments into development. We don’t need to “reclaim” the city from the neediest people in society. We need to remember that this is a city with chasms of disparity between riches and poverty, accept this is a diverse city, keep in mind that downtown has nothing to gain by becoming a sanitized shopping mall, and ignore the classist braying of uninformed blowhards like this.
