    you live the life that you do,

    Fresh face in America,
    Drivin’ betta than me
    Makin’ mo money than me
    My man and I wonder how can this be?

    House stacked…much bigga than mine
    Yet I’m hard my grind
    Here you are taking our shine…

    I ain’t hatin......

    Is the gov’mnt givin you loans? Im just sayin…
    Whats going on with this country?

    The situation is such that it makes us feel like we must be doing something wrong. You're just saying what many have been thinking, and I can appreciate the way you said it.

    Eh, Poetic Mani....I am from Va. Beach/Chesapeake myself, born and raised. Just moved up to Fairfax Va....This place is crazy different from Hampton Roads....It feels like another country here! Its about 60% immigrants, 37% whites, and less than 2% blacks. How can things be so different in one state??? I'm buggin...Dont know how long I will be here. It is just not my scene... My fiance' and I want to live in a place where african americans are represented in healthy amounts....and we are not finding that here. :rolleyes:
