    Funny, my reaction to this was much different than HuffPo's.

    Sounds like it's worth a download.

    So instead of the people who live in the bad areas actually trying to fix them, they yell at someone for telling the truth.

    Makes sense.

    So wait, the part that's detrimental to society is not the existence of crime-heavy areas, but the fact that people avoid them? HOLY FUCK! I missed this moronic sentence the first time I read the story.

    Fucking THIS! I am still learning the ropes down here in FL and have gone through some very scary places more than a few times in my travels for work.

    everyone criticizing the app immediately downloaded it because it's incredibly useful.

    anyone think the good liberal folks at the Huffington Post would be seen frequenting any of these shitty areas themselves after coming down from their ivory tower after work? No, I don't think so either.

    But see, they're better because they lie about that and say they would.

    An app that avoids high crime areas is racist? I'm getting sick of facts being racist.

    No need for an app.

    Just avoid going to the part of town where there's
    a boulevard named after MLK or Malcom X.

    are the opponents saying pointing out high crime areas is racist because the majority of residents are minorities? So, they finally admit minorities commit more crimes. Who's the racist now?

    I guess HuffPo exists in an alternate dimension where one is either rich or poor. I am far, FAR from being rich, but I still want to avoid the ghetto.

    I guess they figure why be redundant when you can just look up maps of violent crime, babies with unknown fathers, welfare recipients, average rim cost to income ratios, drop out rates, per capita fried chicken consumption, melanin concentration by zip, bike thefts, iq levels, or BET ratings?
