AROUND 200,000 African-Americans have reportedly left Chicago in the last 15 years with fears over gun crime blamed for the exodus.

The mass migration could impact Donald Trump’s chances of winning the next US Presidential election, an expert believes. Many black Americans are leaving the Windy City for southern states like Georgia, Texas and Arizona. Fears over gun violence, which killed 561 people in Chicago in 2018, are thought by many to be behind the mass movement of some African Americans.

Black voters from other major cities have also fled south in large numbers, with a lack of jobs also blamed.

William Sampson, professor of public policy at DePaul University in Chicago, believes the migration of large numbers of black voters to southern states could impact Mr Trump’s chances of a second term in the White House.

Dr Sampson told The Times: “The south is becoming more black.

“It’s got people not just from Chicago but from Detroit, Cleveland, St Louis — all kinds of places in the rust belt.

“That’s changing the politics. Why do you think the Republicans in the south are working so hard to repress the vote?

“The percentage of the vote there that’s black has gotten bigger.”

He estimated that Chicago’s black population, a million in 2000, fell below the number of white people in 2017.

Chicago’s gun-violence death toll was higher than than New York and Los Angeles combined last year.

Ira Acree, a Reverend who lives in a mainly black neighbourhood on Chicago’s West side, said many locals are leaving because of the violence.

He said: ”You get used to people leaving and moving to the suburbs.

“But now you notice something else. People are getting out of here.”
