"Lies, damned lies, and statistics" is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments. So do you mean coincidence is a weak argument or what?
City governments run much like the federal government.
junko, why do you always inject race into the discussion? Of the 12 mayors listed, 5 are white, 1 Chinese & 1 Puerto Rican NOT AfroAmerican
Jean Quan Chinese
Luis Quintana Puerto Rican
To some everything is racial no matter what the facts are. Playing the race card wins every time in their world.
tsadjatko, Included in (Democrat) are 5 Whites, 1 Chinese, & 1Puerto Rican. Democrats are an all inclusive Political Party. What I wrote about white flight and the lack of tax revenue for inner-city mayors and the President is valid.
You said "The dangerous cities mentioned are governed by African Americans" Hard to give any credence to someone who makes statements & then acts like he did't say it. Denied tax revenue has nothing to do with it - liberals' policies probably doe
