Posted May 25, 2018 07:00:50 New Orleans is home to the world’s largest African American population, with more than 2 million residents.
While the city has struggled with high crime and poverty for decades, the number of black residents has been on the rise over the past two decades.
And while the city’s black population is slowly growing, the numbers of black people murdered in the city remain steady at around 20,000.
Here are some key stats about the city.
Black people in New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Chicago are also more likely to be murdered than their white counterparts, according to a new report from the Sentencing Project.
But how did the black community fare in the U.S. compared to the rest of the country?
A new study from Sentencing Policy Research finds that black people are less likely to have a criminal record than whites, and are more likely than their non-black counterparts to be victims of violent crime.
They also are less susceptible to incarceration, the study found.
For instance, the majority of African Americans who are arrested for violent crimes are African American.
And just a quarter of those arrested for murder have been convicted.
In fact, only 4.4 percent of the black population of New Orleans had ever been convicted of murder, according the Sentence Project.
While black people do make up nearly 25 percent of New York City’s population, they are the second-largest ethnic group in the state behind Latinos, with a total of 43 percent of its population.
And nearly 40 percent of black New Orleans residents are unemployed, according an analysis from the National Urban League.
In New York State, black men are arrested more than four times as often as white men for violent crime, according a new study.
But they are less than three times as likely to end up behind bars.
The disparity may be partly due to the fact that white people are more apt to be arrested for crimes than their black counterparts.
In a 2012 study from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, researchers found that white men are twice as likely as black men to be imprisoned in New Jersey and three times more likely in New Mexico, compared to whites.
For blacks, those rates are even more stark.
In addition, more than two-thirds of black men have been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison, compared with just 17 percent of white men, according.
For whites, the rate is around 20 percent, and for blacks, it’s about 15 percent.
Black women are more than twice as likelier to be killed by their partner than white women, according research from the New York Civil Liberties Union.
And black men, even those who commit fewer violent crimes, are more likelier than white men to die by their partners, the researchers found.
According to the Sentenced Project, black women are disproportionately the victims of intimate partner violence.
Black men are also disproportionately the perpetrators of domestic violence, according one recent study from Columbia University.
And the Sentences Project found that black women who had been incarcerated for a crime committed by a partner were three times less likely than white people who were incarcerated for similar crimes to be released.
But while the study highlights a lack of cooperation between law enforcement and prosecutors, it also highlights a need for increased funding to ensure more cases are prosecuted.
For example, a recent study found that the number in New Zealand of people who received compensation for their injuries when police shot or killed them dropped from 50,000 in 2008 to just 15,000 last year.
The Sentencing Program says the funding cuts will save more than $2.5 million annually, but more than a quarter will have to come from the state’s general fund.
