The 11 Most Dangerous Cities In America

- By Bossip Staff

U.S. News & World Report has released the annual list of the most dangerous cities in America based on seven years of FBI crime reporting.

The data ranges from property crime like burglary and motor vehicle theft to violent crime like rape, murder and robbery.

An index score of 100 is used to represent the national crime rate therefore the higher the number over 100, the more dangerous the city.

The #1 most dangerous city in America has a score of 530, the second? 484.

So what cities should you avoid? Head over to HipHopWired and check it out.

    That’s why I can bear living in Boston. I live comfortable, I can wear or do whatever. I Don’t have to worry about any uneducated fools aka N+ggas runnin up on me. (For the most part)

    Good, New York is not on the list. I can’t remember when I was ever afraid to walk the steet of NY. And I don’t care how late it is.

    @hannibal- I love NY too. People who don’t live in NY tend to hate on NY…don’t know why.

    Living in a crime ridden city is nothing to brag about. It’s 2011 and people are behaving like barbarians.

    Bragging on a city you don’t personally run is pathetic. How many Black state senators are there? How many govenors? How many mayors of major cities? Sports team owners? Black banks? Fortune 500 company ceos? Some Black people are lost and GPS can’t help ya.

    I was hoping my city still wasn’t #1. It doesn’t seem that bad. You can walk the streets. I don’t play around in clubs or late night, early morning hours but it’s not like it’s just shoot em up bang bang, or I hate to say maybe i’m just use to the violence, and feel like it’s normal & not that bad smh. My area is violence free !

  • Ladoodle

    I can’t believe Atl was #2. I live in the metro area(stayed right downtown on campus briefly) and it really doesn’t seem that bad…

  • Miss Perfection Trini Sazon aka Anti -Coonery .

    this list is wrong where is New Orleans




  • Ellie

    Well I live in NYC, I’m glad to see that NYC wasn’t on the list. To think I have a friend in Atlanta who was telling me how scared they were to visit NYC due to the fear of crime…haha.

    Anyway, now I know where to -not- apply for law/grad school…

  • Huey's Neice

    Man this list some BS…really New Orleans nor Los Angelos didn’t make it???? I find that very hard to believe…

  • ???

    Jackson Ms is dangerous as hell.

  • You Smell Me???

    “My city be poppin off erry day, SON!!!”

    Are some people really on here bragging about whose city is the “Most Dangerous”?

    Like we live in Afghanistan and shyt.

    This right here is the problem. We take pride in our own ignorance and violence. We are a proud race and need to be better.

    Power is control. You show no control, you show no power.
