The least diverse are the most peaceful. What a surprise. This really does show you that wherever blacks and latrinos go, violence and misery follows.

MOST PEACEFUL

America’s Most Peaceful States
10. Iowa
> Violent crimes (excl. murder) per 100,000: 272.2 (18th least)
> Murders per 100,000: 1.3 (tied for 3rd least)

Nevertheless, when all of the categories are considered, Iowa is among the 10 most peaceful states in the country. The state had just 1.3 murders per 100,000 people in 2010, tied for the third-fewest in the country. Iowa has the seventh-highest graduation rate as well as one of the lowest teen death rates in the U.S. The state has a very high labor participation rate, which correlates strongly with peacefulness.
9. Rhode Island
> Violent crimes (excl. murder) per 100,000: 253.8 (13th least)
> Murders per 100,000: 2.8 (16th least)

The Charlotte-Gastonia MSA, which is in is ranked as the sixth-least peaceful metropolitan region in the country, with the highest rate of police per capita in the U.S. The state’s issues with crime may stem from a lack of support for its youth. South Carolina has the among the lowest high school graduation rate in the country, as well as among the highest rates of teen pregnancy and teen deaths.

Arkansas is one of the least peaceful states, as evident by its high incarceration rate of 552 prisoners per 100,000 residents. The state also has several factors correlating with its high crime rate. It has the nation’s highest rate of teenage deaths, with one death for every 1,000 teens, one of the highest rates of births among teenagers. The state also has a poverty rate of 18.4%, the third-highest in the country.

> Police per 100,000: 346.4 (19th most)
> Basic access: 81.9 (20th lowest)
> Total cost of violence: $9.48 billion
Missouri’s quest for peace is most severely set off course by the state’s murder rate, which is the country’s third-highest. The state also has a particularly high incarceration rate, with 508 out of every 100,000 residents in state prison. Missouri has one of the highest rates of teenage deaths, as well as one of the lowest life expectancies, at just 77.4 years. Among major metropolitan areas, the Kansas City metropolitan area is also among the least peaceful.
5. Arizona
> Violent crimes (excl. murder) per 100,000: 401.7 (18th most)
> Murders per 100,000: 6.4 (6th most)
> Incarceration rate per 100,000: 572 (6th most)

> Basic access: 80.8 (16th lowest)
> Total cost of violence: $10.77 billion
Arizona, is the fifth-most violent state in the country. It has not always been this way. According to the Peace I ndex, the state dropped nine places from last year’s rank. The cause of this was a substantial increase in the murder rate, which, at 6.4 murders per 100,000 residents, was the sixth-worst in 2010. The state’s incarceration rate is also sixth worst. When it comes to correlating factors, Arizona actually has the ninth-highest life expectancy in the country, at 79.9 years. However, the state also has the 17th-highest teen death rate, at 69 per 100,000.
4. Florida
> Violent crimes (excl. murder) per 100,000: 537.2 (9th most)

The state has among the highest incarcerations, violent crimes, and rates of police employees. Florida has a number of other problems that correlate with high crime. More than 21% of residents do not have health insurance, which is the country’s third-highest rate. The state also has the fifth-highest rate of income inequality. It has one of the worst rates of labor force participation, as well as one of the largest rates of children living in single-parent households. Among metropolitan areas, Miami-Miami Beach-Kendal is among the worst for peace.

> Police per 100,000: 365.6 (13th most)
> Basic access: 78.0 (2nd lowest)
> Total cost of violence: $5.47 billion
Many of the factors that normally correspond with a high rate of violence are not present in Nevada. The state is actually in the top 50% for poverty rate, income equality, and labor force participation. On the other hand, the state has a high teen birth rate and the second-highest percentage of its population without health insurance. Its citizens also have, according to Gallup, the second-worst access to basic necessities in the country. The state has the highest violent crime rate in the country, with 654.7 per every 100,000 residents recorded in 2010.

> Total cost of violence: $11.67 billion
Tennessee is the second-least peaceful state in the country, and has in fact gotten worse since 1991. Additionally, the Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin metropolitan area is among the worst metro areas for peace. The state is one of the most violent, with nearly 608 violent crimes committed per 100,000 residents in 2010. The state also has among the largest relative number of police employees — nearly 405 per 100,000 people. Tennessee also has one of the largest rates of children living in single parent households, one of the highest poverty rates, one of the lowest rates of income inequality and one of the highest rates of births among teenagers.

Of the five metrics used to generate the Peace Index, Louisiana received the absolute worst score in all but two of them. The state has the eighth-worst violent crime rate and the fourth-worst rate of gun suicides. The state has the highest levels of both police per capita incarceration. The state’s 867 prisoners per 100,000 people is well more than the next-worst state, Mississippi, which has 686 prisoners per 100,000. The state’s murder rate is what truly sets it apart as the least peaceful in the country. Louisiana’s homicide rate in 2010 was 11.2 per 100,000 residents. The next-worst state, Maryland, had 7.4 murders per 100,000 people. Louisiana was also among the worst 10 states for each of the 10 categories shown to have a high level of correlation with violence.

I can attest to how fucked up and dangerous Tennessee is. I am not allowed to enter the parking garage at work after dark without security tagging along.
That is extremely fucked up and sad. While some people want the death penalty removed in the USA, I'd like to see it used more often, and used in a better way. Hanging or shooting. Any scumbag that preys on someone in a parking garage should be hanged or shot. Anyone dealing the likes of heroin or meth, should be hanged or shot. China did a good job of cleaning up their opium dealers, that's one thing I'll give good ol' Mao. Anyone who decides to cut a screen window or crowbar a door and sneak into someone else's house in the night... yep, hanged or shot.

Really, if you really think about it, wouldn't it be much better of a world to live in with the scum that terrorize the public being killed off until anyone who even thinks of doing things of that nature shivers at the thought of what will happen to them. Not laugh when they get a year and a half in Negro University, learning their skills better.

"The Mao Zedong government is generally credited with eradicating both consumption and production of opium during the 1950s using unrestrained repression and social reform. Ten million addicts were forced into compulsory treatment, dealers were executed, and opium-producing regions were planted with new crops."

We could do this here, if more of the thinking minority population in the USA, that is, probably 5-10% of the entire population, agreed on it, and if the Jewish media went along with it. But the Jewish media will not go along with it. They want a weak population in the USA, whether through miscegenation or through a high population of people being addicted to drugs. When the thinking minority takes this country back, democracy is thrown out, Jewish media bosses are executed or imprisoned by the armed forces, then we can start making parking lots safe for people to walk into at night, without having to have a fucking security detail.
 
I knew that TN would make the least peascful list. I live in Memphis and there's nothing but violence here. You know when you have to move to another city when you see eight cop cars plus a blue crush van at the school every day.

You live in Memphis and you are White? Be careful, please.

1. What are the laws about open carry and/or concealed carry there?
2. How integrated are the races? (Are the neighborhoods almost all black, all White, or are they mixed somewhat equally?) And how does the violent crime differ from the neighborhoods that are integrated, the neighborhoods that are almost all black, and the neighborhoods that are almost all White?
3. What race commits the most violent crime on average? What race gets the most free housing & EBT? (I can look this up myself.)

lol, I'm black (but lightskinned enough some people think I'm white)
but regarding your questions most of the neighborhoods are mostly black. There are a few that are mostly white though (these are the rich neighborhoods). Really the only crimes reported about mainly white neighborhoods involves school: coach abuse, molestation, etc; but in the black neighborhoods, there is always a shooting especially at clubs. But there is always news about black people committing crimes here. (dont come to memphis)

Medication time
I transport patients to and from St. Judes hospital in Memphis on a regular basis, I just thought Nashville was bad. I will not even stop at a convienence store to use the rest room in Memphis. A few years ago I went on a road trip with a friend, we got lost in Memphis and suddenly found ourselves on the wrong side of the tracks. Literally we crossed some railroad tracks and ended up on a dirt road at like 1:00 am we were frantically trying to turn around when 3 cars came towards us and turned their headlights out. We got the fuck out of there and drove to a McDonalds that had several police cars and an ambulance sitting in the parking lot(there was a girl who OD laying in the kids play area). The cop got upset seeing 2 young white girls alone there in the middle of the night and he escorted us to the exit we needed to be on and we hauled ass getting out of there. I took a job out of Nashville but I have a long commute to where I actually live because I am not willing to raise my kids near all of the violence going on. I have an apt in Nashville that I stay in 2 days a week while I am on call, but except going to and from work I do not leave unless absolutely neccessary. I am seriously looking into taking a large pay cut and taking a job closer to my home. It is getting to be ridiculous.
 
The statistics about Hawaii are bullshit. I lived there and I know that the place is full of bums that live on beaches and near rivers. The income equality is so good there because the government is allowed to be racist. And for the murder rate? Check the missing persons boards and see how many actually come back.

Hey, I don't blame anyone for how they were born. Like I've said before, the white race and black race both have their share of perverts, murderers, rapists, etc. I'd like to see all of them hanged.

From the view of a black person though, do you hate me for wanting to separate the races? Equality for everyone (as far as their perspective leaders give them that), but separation from each other. This is our organizations main goal.

I dont mind that at all, I'm used to this sort of stuff; last month, my us government class was discussing which race commits the most crimes and if there is any way to lower the crimes

What do you prefer? What do you think works best?

I get to talk to black people about this subject sometimes in real life, but it seems like answers (on both sides) are sometimes maybe not as honest as they should be due to the subject and the fact that it is different races discussing it together. The internet is different. You get a more honest answer here for the most part.

honestly, sometimes I hate being black because this race causes so much trouble here. Memphis used to be a decent place to live. Now it's nothing but violence, a hundred black males at the car wash each weekend, school fights, and big black girls wearing booty shorts. I know that black people are not the only ones that causes trouble but having been living here for 18 years, they caused a great change in the area. I hope that I kind of answered your question, I tried

I know that black people are not the only ones that causes trouble but having been living here for 18 years, they caused a great change in the area. I hope that I kind of answered your question, I tried
You remind me of someone I went to high school with, Renee. She was black but thought the same way you do kind of. Dressed decently. Spoke right. Studied hard and as a result got great grades. She acted more decent than a lot of the white women at my former high school. I had absolutely no problem with her at all, and she and her date came to the prom with me and my date, and another couple. Her brother was different though, and crashed his car on the highway, speeding away after beating someone up, drunk, and killed her along with himself when he veered off the highway into a bunch of trees.

That really doesn't have anything to do with this, but you reminded me of her kind of.

TRUMP or BUST
That's fine, everyone dies sooner or later. Sometimes I actually ponder whether it would be better to die so suddenly you don't even realize it probably, rather than having to deal with every day bullshit for decades and decades. Unless something exciting (i.e. civil war) happens soon, I think I'd rather veer off into the woods, too.
