Caracas, Venezuela, has the unwanted distinction of being the most dangerous city in the world in a new survey

The report takes a look at global homicide rates and finds that the city's mix of gang warfare and political unrest puts it at the top of the list. Here are the 10 worst:
1. Caracas, Venezuela; homicides per 100,000: 130.35
2. Acapulco, Mexico; 113.24
3. San Pedro Sula, Honduras; 112.09
4. Distrito Central, Honduras; 85.09
5. Victoria, Mexico; 84.67
6. MaturĂ­n, Venezuela; 84.21
7. San Salvador, El Salvador; 83.39
8. Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela; 82.84
9. Valencia, Venezuela; 72.02
10. Natal, Brazil; 69.56
The most dangerous city in the United States is St. Louis, at No. 14.

I guess black people aren't that violent, seeing as not a single all-black city made the top 26. Or do cities between the Limpopo and the Sahara just not have anyone keeping track of homicides?

I would say the black Africans do a piss poor a job of keeping track of homicides as they do a piss poor a job of everything else.
