    Two conditions that are seen as an underclass still in modern America, both lower self worth............People with guns, drugs and no hope are obviously a dangerous cocktail.
    To me not able to safely walk down the street would do a lot to damage self-worth.

    Jobs? After the Watts riots in Los Angeles, it was many years before anybody would build a bank, decent grocery store or other shopping venues. That left the populace having to depend on more expensive small shops.

    That not only cost jobs but made daily life more expensive.

    Nobody is going to build businesses in high crime areas, costing local jobs.
