I've been trying to find a way to make this topic as unoffensive as I can but it's too much. This is something that's been on my mind for days so if you're sensitive or don't like hearing the truth, just hit the Back button. Here's what's been bothering me. The low income neighborhoods in my city are black neighborhoods and they are also very dangerous. These are places that my more street-wise siblings say that they won't even want to live there. So someone like me would get eaten alive. But why? If it's not a black thing, what is it? I've heard some people say it's because they're in poverty. Really? Those guys don't seem depressed to me. They seem happy and they seem to love the neighborhood they're in. So I ask again, why? Also if they don't want crime in their neighborhood why don't they just come together to get rid of it. All of the crime can't be from outside so most of it comes from inside. This shatters the earlier theory of being sad about being in poverty. They don't want to get rid of it. What I'm angry about is that these are supposed to be people that I can relate to more but they would more likely harm me than help me. It's this kind of crap that makes it difficult to want to help other blacks. While simultaneously hearing and seeing negativity from other races. It gives you a very lonely feeling. You can't trust your own because they're dangerous and you can't trust anyone else because they don't like you. So is there any hope for people in these types of neighborhoods or should I just write them off?
