A city under siege by criminal gangs.
Black gangs, Bloods and Crips, in a city that is only 6.3 percent black.

In a city that 93.7 percent non-black (76.1 percent white), only 6.3 percent of the population is responsible for all the violence keeping police busy. [800 rounds fired in 145 Portland-area gang incidents this year, KGW.com, 10-7-15]
Yes, all the violence.
And in a city where the black community won't snitch on black criminals, a program necessary only because individual blacks collectively make Portland violent is being initiated.
Courtesy of an organization called 'Enough is Enough' we see 6.3 percent of Portland's population responsible for the creation of the Office of Youth Violence Prevention rolling out the aptly named Somebody Needs Information That Can Help (S.N.I.T.C.H). Here's the mission statement of S.N.I.T.C.H.
Yes, the black population of Portland is responsible for the creation of S.N.I.T.C.H. and they represent only 6.3 percent of the city's population. [Portland campaign encourages violent crime witnesses to come forward, KGW.com, 10-9-15]:
It only takes a population representing 6.3 percent of the city to bring it to its knees.
Truly, a powerful reminder of the contributions of black people to the United States of America.
