Milwaukee should be a great city.
It should be a world-class city.
The reasons for this dilemma are quite obvious, though you can’t say them publicly in 2023 America if you wish to be able to make public appearances without armed guards.
Milwaukee is 37 percent white and 40 percent black.
And the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission helps us understand why the city isn’t a great city. The authors of the review analyze every shooting and homicide to determine why it happened (completely dispelling the idea “gang violence” is to blame for the bloodshed), and they break each one down by race of victim and race of suspect as well.
It’s not even a good city, and here’s why:
In 2022 Milwaukee, there were 214 homicides and 868 nonfatal shootings.
The non-white community of Milwaukee was responsible for 96.4 percent of known homicide suspects and 95.22 percent of known nonfatal shootings suspects. Imagine how much gun crime would happen in an all-white Milwaukee… virtually none.
