And the No. 1 Most Dangerous City in America is . . . .
(1) Monroe, LA: In 2000, the city had a population of 53,107 people. In 2010, 63.9% of Monroe’s population were black, 33.4% white, 1.05% Asian, and 1.01% Hispanic or Latino.
It would be interesting if someone can do the research to find out if this list correlates with how the cities voted in 2016 (blue or red), and the percentage of the city’s population who are black.
