As a white person who lives in a “non white area” I can tell you I have never been robbed or attacked and feel safer than when I lived in my white area kingstanding I live in bordesley green now and to be honest there is no such thing as a non white area it’s just something racists made up to make immigration look bad but forget that Birmingham is dangerous especially if your an outsider if you are going to visit stick to city centre or more tourist friendly areas like harbourne, edgebaston and Solihull but even then be careful as inner city thugs often patrol the suburbs committing street robbery’s

A Somalian guy stabbed 8 people in the city centre and it surprised no one. Crime has increased along with ethnic minority culture and joblessness among the youth. Postcode gangs have a long history in Brum, and migrants from the third world have made it more deadly. If you’re white, don’t go looking for trouble out at night or even daytime in some areas. Best to live in somewhere like Shirley but soon I’m sure BLM racists will come through anyway asking for reparations with knives.

Alot of illegal immigrants here doing alot of crime, just saying how it is. Crime is very high, the city is not safe.

sorry but I really don't think anyone should be holding Muslims against crimes. there are 9 out of 10 white people who commit crimes and are paedophiles, but when it comes to white people the world is blind. so whoever is talking rubbish seriously needs o do their research.

Filled with Muslims whoa commit crime. This place is no longer safe nor a nice city because the white British were driven out. This is happening across Europe!

If you're a white person in a nonwhite area (almost everywhere) outside of the city centre then don't walk alone. You stand a good chance of being robbed assaulted. Twice it's happened to me. This is like a third world city. If You bear that in mind you'll be ok.

Birmingham West midlands has a lot of segregation and division in areas no wonder crime is high , yes there is a big problem with racism in Birmingham UK as people are not tolerant or educated , Birmingham is not as pleasant as it seems to be , very undeveloped place lacks in a lot very boring place all you have in Birmingham is city centre and in the outskirts of Birmingham and areas are very dull and boring even people are as unfriendly there is no sense of community and never has been in Birmingham , coming from London I have noticed and races don't integrate much either.
