Why is Baltimore in poorer health than urban Nigeria?

In the Baltimore neighborhood of Sandtown, the infant mortality rate is more than than six times the national average, and life expectancy is more than a decade lower than in the rest of the…

Ironically, the best news program in America is provided by the government,
not the free market. Kudos to PBS, champion of common sense.

The united states is the new face of the third world and the american
people have done nothing about it. You deserve what you get america for
trusting your government to look out for your better interest.

How can a country spend so much on wars than education and health care? A
country that talks so much about making the lives of others “better” needs
to take better care of it’s own citizens. Despicable!

How can any American watch this and not be in shame?

Demokkkrats are completely at fault here. They are destroying so many of
our cities, just like Detroit. This is what you get for giving them
control.

Seth Caplan says:

Baltimore is not really comparable to Nigeria, Sandtown, Essex and the
other poorer neighborhoods are shrinking, however the approach thus far has
been largely top down, focusing on expanding middle and upper class areas
that generate revenue rather then helping the poor.

MOVE TO CUBA.

Michael Cameron says:

According to Conservatives in the UK and Republicans in the US, the reason
Baltimore is in this state is because these people are feckless good for
nothing layabouts who really ought to pull themselves up by their own
bootstraps. Personally these sort of explanations make me sick.

Joe Stanaback says:

Well this is what happens when American factories are closed and the money
is invested in factories overseas and in foreign economies. America is
just SOL.
.
America is just SOL. Most especially now that foreign powers and
companies are buy up what American companies are left and are now taking
over the role of LOBBYING Congress and deciding what LAWS Congress will
make, and in making undisclosed campaign contributions in order to control
who is and is not elected in America. The CORPORATIONS , WALL STREET, the
RICH, both POLITICAL PARTIES, and CONGRESS have sold out to foreign
interests at the expense of all of America. … and the entire world for
that matter. Russia and China will just take what they want from Europe,
Asia, and the rest of the world.
.
If Stalin only knew, Stalin and the Soviet Union could have WON the COLD
WAR just by buy up America, as CHINA is doing today.
.
Damn, the COMMUNISTS are BEATING the CAPITALISTS at their own game. It is
just Sad….
.
Well at least I will not be around to see the end of America 40 or 60 years
from now… .

It is of a known fact that Pigs like you will for ever remain ignorant and
socially underdeveloped. What has Africa not discovering wheel got to do
with this? Hence, you are categorized as “grade A” Illiterate and a
nonentity.

No need to trash-talk Nigeria.

So you legislated to get rid of the steal company there & people are poor.
BRING THAT WORK BACK! Not hard to understand!
The agenda is:
NOW it’s time for BIG PHARMA to come in and force meds & the mark of the
beast!

Tom Faranda says:

Maybe the fact that the Democrat Party has run Baltimore since 1967 has
something to do with it?

Here’s an idea: why don’t we send them all to Nigeria?!!!! EVERYBODY WINS!
Their life conditions improve, the rest of us don’t have to deal with them
anymore, WIN-WIN!!!! The only ones to suffer in this scenario are
Nigerians, but who cares about them? It will be our payback for all those
“Nigerian widow” scam emails )))))

MeltedPearls says:

The history of American capitalism shows that it doesn’t provide for those
who can no longer be used by it. Can we all see it now?

mutexnet says:

When you don’t stay in school, use drugs, single parents who don’t care,
unmotivated to better yourself, incurious, etc., well you get Baltimore. Or
Detroit. Or wide swaths of Chicago. Or Africa. When you realize in Africa
they never discovered the wheel, well, those same genes are here. The
untold Billion$ of taxpayer dollars spent made little difference. The
affirmative action, preferred treatment, etc didn’t make a dent. We tried.
No other race coming here (Korean, Viet Namise, Irish, German, English,
Italian etc) had these issues. Could it be – just possibly – that it is the
DNA and not social factors? After 50 years and Billions$ things are going
backwards. Money and special treatment appears not to be the solution.
