I had the opportunity to listen Dr. Ron Larson speak about the City of Baltimore, Maryland during his visit to Sarasota, Florida. Dr. Larson said that the average age of a grandmother in Baltimore is 36-years old. He also called Baltimore “sin city.”
The racial makeup of the City of Baltimore, Maryland:
- Black Non-Hispanic Alone (63.3%)
- White Non-Hispanic Alone (28.0%)
- Hispanic or Latino (4.2%)
- Asian alone (2.3%)
- Two or more races (1.7%)
Jane L. Pearson ; Andrea G. Hunter ; Joan M. Cook ; Nicholas S. Lalongo ; Sheppard G. Kellam in their study Grandmother involvement in child caregiving in an urban community found:
The number of children in the United States who currently live with older adults is substantial. Since 1980 there has been a 44% increase in the number of children living in homes with grandparents (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1994). In 1990, the rate for all children was 5%. However, rates vary with ethnicity and living context: More than 12% of African American children lived with a grandparent, while 5.8% of Hispanic and 3.6% of White children lived with a grandparent (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1991). Grandparents are more likely to co-reside with children in urban settings. [Emphasis added]
According to City-Data.com,
Baltimore is Number 2 on the list of Top 101 counties with the highest number of infant deaths per 1000 residents 2007-2013 (pop. 50,000+). Baltimore is Number 6 on the list of Top 101 counties with highest percentage of residents voting for Obama (Democrat) in the 2012 Presidential Election (pop. 50,000+)
Estimated median household income for the City of Baltimore in 2013 was $42,266 while the average household income for Maryland is $72,483.
Baltimore has 70,974 single-parent households (9,056 men, 61,918 women).
Percentage of residents living in poverty in 2013: 23.3% (14.3% for White Non-Hispanic residents, 26.6% for Black residents, 26.8% for Hispanic or Latino residents, 30.9% for American Indian residents, 15.5% for Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander residents, 38.9% for other race residents, 27.8% for two or more races residents)
Baltimore has become one of many Democrat Urban Plantations, where residents are nothing more than slaves to big government.
In his April 2015 article Baltimore Is a Democrat Problem, Not America’s Problem John Nolte wrote:
Contrary to the emotional blackmail some leftists are attempting to peddle, Baltimore is not America’s problem or shame. That failed city is solely and completely a Democrat problem. Like many failed cities, Detroit comes to mind, and every city besieged recently by rioting, Democrats and their union pals have had carte blanche to inflict their ideas and policies on Baltimore since 1967, the last time there was a Republican Mayor.
In 2012, after four years of his own failed policies, President Obama won a whopping87.4% of the Baltimore City vote. Democrats run the city of Baltimore, the unions, the schools, and, yes, the police force. Since 1969, there have been only two Republican governors of the State of Maryland.
Elijah Cummings has represented Baltimore in the U.S. Congress for more than thirty years. As I write this, despite his objectively disastrous reign, the Democrat-infested mainstream media is treating the Democrat like a local folk hero, not the obvious and glaring failure he really is.
Every single member of the Baltimore city council is a Democrat.
Donald Trump’s Speech to Black Voters: Life is Hard on the Democratic Plantation.
Mr. Trump has argued that Democratic policies are responsible for the persistent high unemployment, inadequate education and substandard living conditions that blight inner-city neighborhoods.
Trump is right, once again. #TrumpAllRight.
