A mid-sized city of broke black people. Population is 95% african american. The lowest income per person in Michigan.One of the Murda Mitten's worse. So don't be surprised if get merk'd and robbed. On a positive note it is talent in Benton Harbor from talented boxers(Courtney Burton), Rappers(Chi Boy), actors(Vivca Fox even though she doesn't say it),comedians(Sinbad),and many more.
