The suburbs are becoming the new ghetto because alot of people are renting out those homes in the suburbs to section 8 folks.
Culture has alot to due with violent crime etc..
you don't see alot of poor section 8 hadsic folks going around robbing people.
If i was poor I rather live in a hasidic ghetto.
You are comparing apples with oranges. A community will commit a crime that is A) Most easily pulled off, and B) most lucrative. Hasidim are very easily recognized by others, because they are so different, so their crimes wont be mugging, since they would be easily identified, but rather Medicaid and Welfare fraud.
Italian Mafia are just as violent as the muggers, but due to their White phenotype, are able to more easily mingle with and do business with other Whites, therefore its easier for them and more lucrative to do business related crimes, and contract style killings.
Hasidim are a community that while they are poor, SELF SEGREGATES, so the crime they commit tends to be very insular and not noticed among people like you or me.
Many Mexicans also have the same dynamic due to language and cultural barriers.
If you read their own papers or really interact with them, you will know how much drugs, prostitution and all sorts of criminal activity is really taking place in Mexican communities.
If it's any indication read about the level of violence in the Juarez area in Mexico due to drug cartels.
Now poor Latinos from Puerto Rico and the DR, as well as poor Blacks are culturally integrated in the USA. They fit in with you and me and can pass along more "anonymously", so they ARE more likely to target you and me as "regular New Yorkers".
Now qualitatively that is also very different than poor Whites who tend to live in very rural and spread out areas, so their crimes are also not as "in your face". For an example, a meth addict in middle America will probably rob an empty house and get away by car, rather than mug a person on the streets. Those White poor live in the suburbs so mugging just isn't very lucrative to them.
Just notice how Columbine and Aurora type phenomenon don't happen in urban places because the difficulty in obtaining weapons in urban areas.
The type of crime many of these Hasidim perpetrate is qualitatively different and is often only reported to their own "authority" figures. I have a psychologist friend who works in this community, and can tell you that there is a MASSIVE amount of credit card, medicaid, welfare, housing and insurance fraud. Why because these things require very little face to face interaction and can be done by someone who looks very different from the American populous.
PS: crime is often committed same race on same race, due to the likelihood of living "amongst" your own, and being able to fade into the populous of "your own" as you try to flee capture.
I used that philosophy effectively, and chose to live in Latino neighborhoods, due in part to the fact that I love my brown people, but I know that since there is a huge cultural and language divide, I won't be targeted nearly as often, with cat calls etc. I have proven myself right anecdotally.
I also believe this is why when White folks get mugged or hurt by Black/Latino's its front page news, but every sad little Black woman/man who is ever assaulted/raped/mugged etc, doesn't even make a blurb next to the obituaries, because its so common.
