Black on Black violence in New Orleans Louisiana has risen exponentially ever since the devastation that was Hurricane Katrina, a problem that can be solved by the coming together of the African American community to protect each other’s back. Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans Louisiana on August 29th, 2005 and left an impact that could not properly be described by any set of words. The main problem that everyone could see was that a great city had been completely obliterated. The dilemma that was overlooked by practically everyone was that the entire city had shut down.

The quality of housing did not help, but worsen the overcrowding issue, being one of the biggest reason why this was such a big problem. Cities grew a huge amount in a very short period of time. This can be seen when the city of Manchester went from 17,000 to 70,000 people in a period of 50 years. Because there were so many people cramped in the cities, enormous amounts of human waste were produced, with nowhere to be disposed. Cess pools overflowed, and waste was everywhere, making diseases the product of such filthy conditions.
This modernization acted as a perfect catalyst to support the surging wave of capitalism across Western Europe. In the novel “The Ladies’ Paradise,” Emile Zola focuses on this rising capitalistic culture, specifically in the form of department stores. Like many features of Paris, the way the cities inhabitants shopped transformed completely. Big department stores opened across the city, and they contained a wide variety of products unlike the traditional stores that would specialize in one product. These new shops were marketed to be a focal point in society.
One of the main tactics pimps use to recruit girls is by manipulating them.

Stricter laws towards him and other homeless people make it extremely hard for Frank. While trying to apply for jobs throughout the city, he has to go in with those citations on his record and see what the company says. More often than not, he is not accepted for any job. When he is on those streets the laws against what he is doing are providing no benefit for him or the economy. Frank is being denied some of the essential rights of being a human being.
When talking about the migration during the Great Plague of London, Staiano said, “Many of the wealthier people fled the cities and retreated to their country residences. This flight of people began in earnest in London, in June 1665, creating much confusion and a dramatic change in social and economic conditions.” Migration stopped all normal life for the people of London. Even though it isolated and decreased the amount of diseased citizens in London, it did disrupt some of the economic stability. For example most trade and commerce halted leading to unemployment and starvation. Dyer explains how the migration impacted the people of London and
But, the effects left on its residents were even bigger. The city was completely destroyed, and costed the city over two-hundred million dollars to fix. But, even though the city was destroyed it could be replaced, but the lives lost could not. An estimated three-hundred people died in that fire. The effects left on the families that lost a loved one was greater than the loss of their homes.
Crowded places such as fairs, marketplaces and public executions were particularly profitable for young thieves. In the county of Middlesex, during the first quarter of the nineteenth century, three in every four petty thefts reported were committed by people under twenty-five years old. Between 1830 and 1860, over half of the defendants tried for pickpocketing were younger than twenty years old. Social investigators argued that poverty was largely responsible for corrupting youth, leaving them desperate in the streets to find any way to obtain money (bl.uk). This is seen in Oliver Twist, as Fagin takes advantage of the poor youth by having them steal handkerchiefs in the streets.
