Fakefatsechurch guy, first lets get your lingo right brotha. I'm a young guy my self and live in the hood my self. Not every young or older person in the hood has the hood mentality (yet the instincts to survive in it). Going to work is my only escape in till 5 hits and it's time to go back to the jungle. It's crazy when I go to neighborhoods in white residential areas and things are sweet. You might have your robber and juvi running around here and there (but what block doesn't have that in the U.S.). I don't see killings jumpin' off in those neighborhoods. I don't see Becky smackin' up other chicks on Capital Hill...but every day I see keke smackin' up keisha on the Southside constantly. As above the shootings and etc...this is evident that there is something still wrong within the Black community, black culture, black familys, our mind sets and I can go on. Fakefat, all that preachin' that you just did didn't make any sense...and it's going to take more than a First Baptist Church to reach these troubled youths and young guys my works but it's not affective like that truth be told but that doesn't mean you or anyone should stop making efforts.

Lol@waterfrontproperty...I'm sure you're up on the state of Southwest, it's no better there neither.

I shake my head at society and where we are as a people....I'm not impressed.
