Russia - 9.5
United States - 3.9
United Kingdom - 0.9
And likewise for southern Africa - Namibia and South Africa have a long history of oppression by the government.
Namibia, for example, is one of the most developed countries in Sub Saharan Africa, yet has one of the highest murder rates of all of Africa? I don't believe it.
Personally, I learned in a Psych class that income inequality is the biggest determinant of crime. As tshalla says above, murder rate rankings and GINI rankings are pretty similar.
This obviously isn't the only reason, but it definitely contributes to the statistics.
Yes it is a fact that these countries are made up of certain demographics.
Your comment seems to imply that black = murderer. But perhaps a more relevant metric might be poor = murderer.
Then I tried Guyana and thought of the Caribbean countries. Super surprised that those island countries have such high murder rates. Why??
Might want to check your sources before jumping to conclusions
But it's a Republican talking point that Chicago is a warzone, and also that California is an unlivable s*hole, and so these things get repeated online a lot, confusing everyone who actually lives either place.
