I'd like to point out that some sections of your "black Chicago" map are relatively safe and middle class neighborhoods.
There is a strong correlation between race, poverty and crime. But your equating black with dangerous is invalid. And offensive
Was it really necessary to include a map of "black Chicago?"

Until I see a good neighbourhood by neighbourhood crime statistic map I'll continue to use race as a proxy for crime, which, judging by these preliminary statistics, seems to work out well.
Why not just look at the city's own data, down to the beat level?
The differences between the crime map and the Black Chicago map are telling, especially on the SW side.
