A city that thrives on letting you know how hard you REALLY are is NOT how fat your wallet is, or how stacked your portfolio may be. Come correct, or you could be the next statistic they love to examine us by.
Come correct, or don't come.

Charm City. It's called Charm City. The benches in Baltimore also say, "Baltimore - The City That Reads" because you're supposed to read when you sit down on a bench.

Baltimore=resilience. To make it out of Baltimore is something to brag about. Even people from the projects make it everyday from NY and LA because they are already set up from birth to succeed. Baltimoreans have to truly fight to make it and that's what makes us so resilient.

I saw a few articles on here blaming white people for what happened to baltimore. Notably #42, "Tom's".

Well, here's an angry black man's opinion of the matter:

Yes, Baltimore sucks. Baltimore sucks BADLY. Why?

Here's why...

What was a thriving blue-collar city lined with beautiful independent ethnic family shops, marble steps, a strong sense of community and common good, was sacrificed by the democrats to create a welfare city and thus a base of power in the "south". In order to drive out industry and blockbust neighborhoods they raised taxes disproportionately, none of which were used to stimulate art or cultural activities. They overtaxed industry and forced them out, thus destroying the work force and forcing white blue collar workers to find work elsewhere (later they would slap them in the face further by saying that they "ran" from blacks because of "White Flight"). From there, the police force was corrupted from the bottom up, intentionally, by organized crime syndicates and cartels which have now made baltimore the heroin capital of the united states. Because of this, and the very NON-socialist (you have to work to make a socialist welfare state function properly) democratic scheme to create a drug-hole, street crime rose to massive proportions. This forced the rest of the ethnic european (white), jewish, mediterranean, etc communities to pack up and leave. During the race riots, the italians protected little italy by standing out in the streets with weapons. the rioters didn't dare cross the line. The germans, poles, and greeks did the same to protect highlandtown and greek town. Even with these efforts to stand their ground and protect the sanctity of all that they had worked to build, these groups were forced out by the unchecked and unpunished street and hate-crimes inflicted by the selfish, hateful, racist black "community" that we have here in baltimore. They blame white people for everything, when its only the whites and hispanics that seem to work here. you know you're in a bad situation when illegal immigrants do more to empower your city and bring to it civilization than your majority fucking people.

baltimore was systematically destroyed. a welfare trap was created to CREATE poverty and maintain it. blacks were used as pawns and still are. Not by white people. Not by a white system. Only because they choose to be. In order to save baltimore, the black community needs to be "less black and more community" and get over their OWN racial barriers to revive a city the problematic sector of their population more than jovially helped to destroy.
