This is what happens when the left controls for extended periods of time.
But all the "lefty countries" have a small fraction of the crime present in the US.

Detroit's new motto:"We make Baltimore look good".
And maybe it's racist on my part (I'm not sure), but it frankly reminds me of some of the corrupt African countries where the dictator and his cronies are all socking money away in Switzerland and buying their mistresses fur coats on United Nations money while the country starves to death.
Dallas and Houston both have majority minority populations and are both democratic strongholds but I see these differences1. We have a large group of immigrants who work, own businesses, and spend money(for instance, vietnamese laudramat/convenience store owners, pakistani and indian doctors and motel owners, mexican taquaria and custom shop owners), that offset the negative economic impact on the city by white flight and middle class black flight2. the lingering effects of the "rust belt" are worse, and businesses didnt wanna deal with the unions up there so they relocated to right to work states
