their targeting the n*gga best for the gang. depending on what he looks like where he lives who he knows etc. but point blank the fact is that its not the governments full responsibility and it aint the hood's full responsibility. efforts need to come from everyone to make it a clean safe and aspiring neighborhood

Most people are the products of their own environments.

If you live in a poor community, and attend a "poor" or "failing" school, etc. then how are you going to know that there is more to life than what is on the television, etc. Most poor people have different value systems than most middle class and well-off people. No offense to anyone on here, but most people in the ghetto, especially blacks are more concerned about whether they have the right shoes (Jordans, Air Ones), right clothes ( Overpriced Designer crap from Demo), right phone, right car and for the females whether or not their hair and nails are done. They are mostly concerned with appearances and how they look. This can be especially seen during the spring during prom season. Prom is the prime example of people spending money beyond their means. I mean why spend $500 for a prom dress when you can get one for $100 especially if you know you can not afford it. Why spend money going to get your hair done when you can do it yourself. Why are you spending money on a television, when you can put more money to buying books, or a computer, something to educate yourself better with. Most people in the ghetto tolerate certain types of businesses because they themselves have not been educated to know that there are better ways of doing things, like opening a bank account rather than going to the payday loan store. And if these things are available to them, how are they suppose to know and choose. Plain and simple, the point I am trying to make is that MOST people in the ghetto are concerned with appearances and need to focus more on educating themselves about the opportunities available to them.

true and which is why i try to explain to people that aint black is that the bigger overall problem is the mind frame and the MENTAL SLAVERY that we are under that is harder to break than the physical slavery. theres a difference between a boy in the suburbs wit jordans on and some red monkey jeans goin to one of the best schools in the county then to a boy in the projects wit jordans and the same jeans goin to the school round da corner. that mind frame needs to be broken and the best way to start is with the root the parents and with government influence and help cuz it cant be broken alone. but the day that will happen who knows

some person talking about gangs fu*king it up for others... well thats AMERICA'S fault for letting it happen man. Go take a stand and tell that to your government .....not "rich" folks (the ones legally earning money not in illegal actions) or those with a career which had to be worked for ..... like engineers, doctors, lawyers, commerce students ETC....... its NOT THEIR FAULT FOR SACRIFICING A COUPLE OF YEARS TO HAVE A BETTER AND A NICE LIFE


WHILE AMERICAN TROOPS ARE IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ f!ghting "terrorism" there are gangs in america displaying to same bullsh*t. Fix our country up before going to others and fu*king it up there.

I know in many circumstances where theres nothing you can do, but for the "Ghetto" all they think about is living with luxary is the normal lifestyle... well in actuality no one needs a HDTV 50 inch tv, an ipod, PROVIDE THE GHETTO money for DRUGS AND ALCOHOL....... how much money would it take to fix the average poor citizen ...... what would he/she DO WITH THAT MONEY... i dont think giving them money would fix their lived up at all since they DONT value EDUCATION<----- that right there is the main cause of most peoples dilemmas not having credentials to move on in LIFE........

and obviously kids need a direction and everything .... but with most adults with their stupid mentality it isnt going to change for the kids growing up now....... BETTER FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO CANCEL THEIR MIDDLE EASTERN REIGN and bring the troops here ... turn them to officials who govern all the stupidity going on in america.......

cuz that "ghetto tax" is going to go to "bling" and tremendously expensive cars or some hicks fu*king drug money........

ps this is not directed to any race... its just for those who have ignorance towards a typical 'rich' person who worked to get their be it white, black brown etc..........

part of that is just lack of financial knowledge, and trying to live a lifestyle that you cant afford. it mentions buying a tv, or renting one, that might be a lifestyle some cant afford. also, it is cheaper save jsut a little money to buy a bus pass instead of individual tickets.
but if a few banks opened in the hood, it would make a world of difference. offering savings and credit to poor people, and investing back in those communities would do wonders.

Another problem I forgot to mention is that most of the lower class citizens of this country are over reliant on the government to fix problems within their community. It is not the government's job to educate your child and teach him or her morals and values, it is the parent's job. It is not the government's job to make sure you eat properly, it is the adult's responsibility. Most people especially in the ghetto, do not realize the kind of power they would have if they would be more active in their community in getting rid of liquor stores, and dilapidated houses so that they can have the supermarkets, and safer neighborhoods to live in. Most people rely too much on welfare checks and food stamps as their only means of financial income while trying to buy luxurious items (anything that is not a necessity) so they can live better than some of the people who make an honest living and work a 9-5 w/ some having two jobs. America is called the land of opportunity, but opportunities are only available to those who want to take them.

That's not always the case. I know where I live at (in a large urban metro city), the minute the bank branches start appearing in the ghetto, gentrification officially began with a lot of the poor people being moved from the neighborhoods because could no longer afford to live there due to price of rent rising due to a sharp increases in property taxes and due to increased security within the neighborhood (since the homeowners start complaining and calling the police when they see people loitering on street corners and littering and stuff)... So a bank branch and a supermarket can go a long way.

there u go again re-emphasizing my point ... i didnt say its easy... it is harder for a person in any given circumstance... but when ur a single mother living in america .. and the dumbass dad doesnt accept responsibility thats his fault not yours ... so if you being the non married mother that you are decide to have the baby you know the consequences ... so do everything in your power to atleast get by ... and make sure that baby is taken care of , the amount of things you a single mother qualify for in the US are never endless as far as education is concerned and even jobs... as far as people who have been laid off ... again its difficult being used to a job for god knows what period of time then getting laid its going to be hard to get back on to your feet... and thats why you have to know how to save and spend your money for when these things happen

reemphasizing your point??? if you think that, you missed MY point. please reread my post. not all the time if you do your "best" you can succeed. your comment about the single mother is ridiculous. it's his fault not yours??? are you serious??? what difference does it make??? you still got mouths to feed and bills to pay. second, don't have a baby because you can't get by??? should you be steralized as well??? sh*t, why stop there??? lets get the old, the crippled, the retarded and steralize all of them since they can't get by... as far as saving for that rainy day??? it's hard to do, if you are that single mother with a dead beat partner, when all your money goes into things she and her family needs to survive. so then when she gets laid off what happens then.

some people are just the way you discribe them, lazy, unmotivated, and lives day by day, but don't think everyone in the ghetto is like that. not everyone choose to live in the ghetto.

^^ true story...some people just cant grasp it...by several people's logic in here, whatever happens to you is basically your fault..."if you get jumped by a gang, you shouldn't have been there"...that's as ignorant as saying "if that lil girl got hit with a stray bullet, she shouldn't have been coming out of that convience store"....and how are people in here talking about how the "ghetto people" are only concerned with "bling" and rims and rob and steal too much, while they have avatars with people dipped in jewelry and are quoting rappers like T.I. who mostly talks of the drug game?...I guess it's okay when it's entertainment, but in the real world your the a**hole because you got laid off, and brought it upon yourself...

Mainstream Hip Hop is designed to destroy youth and trap them into a mindset of materialism, s3xism, hatred, and selfishness.

These rappers are told what to rap about, their records are not promoted until it conforms, and corporations advertise through their tracks (alcholic beverages, automobile companies, etc.)

Just look who run the companies that promote it.


Mos Def's "The r*pe Over" is the last "mainstream" hip hop song I listen to.

A lot people in this thread appear to have had a pretty decent life and probably never really had to struggle to make ends meet. Everybody knows life isn't fair and if you're dealt a bad hand take advantage of what opportunities you do get to make your situation better, whatever it may be. The problem is a few people on this board don't realize how hard it is to over come poverty when you start from the bottom coming into this world. America is a land of opportunity where anybody can make it, but some people on this board don't realize when you come from the bottom there is no room for error or wrong decision making in life that could set you back. (Example have a baby, go rent to own a TV instead of saving to buy, smoke some weed, sell some drugs, not better your education, blowing money on non necessities)

If you make every correct decision in life, yes you might just make it out, but that's huge burden on anybody. A person shouldn't have to be perfect just to make it out the ghetto. Some of you people on this board probably made some bad decision that were stupid like spend your last 400 on an Xbox 360 instead of paying your bills, but because of the position you're in you're not trapped in an ongoing cycle of taking out payday loans every two weeks for 500 dollars that you have to pay back with interest of 75 dollars.


People on this board want to say do this and do that, but I think the point of the article people are missing is there is an unfair system in place that causes people in poorer areas to pay more over several months for the same services that are cheaper to an area with more income, which is a burden on the wallets of people who are trying to do the right thing and make it. Everybody knows there are people who put themselves in a situation and either don’t care or don’t make an effort to better themselves, but still point fingers at everybody. We don’t want to focus on them people we want to focus on people who are trying to do something, but can't because they're stuck in this cycle of disadvantage.

That's what I'm saying also...

These dudes are obviously inherently racist and/or classist and they have the nerve to be on a hip hop board talking like they know poor Blacks.

As a person who was raised poor and worked himself into the middle class I have a few tips. Education is a major factor as well as home training. A parent who raises a child to believe society is to blame should be shot. You can not raise a success story with excuses. Keep your child away from the ghetto even if you live there. My mom wouldn't let us play no further than the front gate. It seemed like prison at the time but it was eventual freedom. Freedom from a low thinking way of life and it's surroundings. As a result, I wasn't the coolest kid around but I was least likely to wind up in some b.s. An individual must make something out of nothing in order to succeed in todays way of life. It's possible but it takes patience and a never give up attitude. If you're 18 and poor, that's your parents fault. If you're 18, poor, and ignorant, grab a mirror and blame that dumbass in it. Let's get it!
