    Wow...

    I guess you were moved, huh?


    Different lifestyles can create different perspectives as your flow so nicely conveys.

    thank you poets

    Coco - yes i was

    ASP - thank you you already know what it is, people undermine another's struggle, that would be like me blowing off a woman when she says giving birth
    was painful, i go "yea right" i sound stupid being a man i don't know what it feels like, so yes I DISLIKE PEOPLE who undermine the streets with their opinions, opinions don't fly in the streets bullets do, and when they do ish gets real quick see how you get peoples attention? and you tell me you read some statistics in a book so now your ready to tell me how to survive in the hood
    on a street corner in any major city thank you Bx Pham

    $$$RICH$$$ my chi-city brethren - i ALREADY know you know what it is
    up close and personal BLESS YOU MAN YOU KNOW I HAVEN"T FORGOTTEN JR.

    SAP - thank you pretend in the street, means the end six feet deep
    i'm not glorifying anything when you've been in the line of fire it changes you forever. life will never be the seem, once you see how quick life can change

    football has a saying "on any given sunday"

    well the street saying is "any given second"

    thank poets

    MY BEAUTIFUL BLACK QUEENS thank you for feeling me

    people think the streets are funny some joke until you found yourself
    in a not so pleasant situation:uhh:

    i didn't say it was right, didn't say i enjoy it, i just say what it is

    Hey Street....I just had to do this research paper for my English Composition class...it's about the life of children in tha streets. I thought of you...

    We had to watch a small documentary, about 5 minutes long, and write about it.

    I would be honored if you would check it out...I promise it will be worth your time. I encourage anyone else to view it as well....

    It's called "Bullet Proof Vest"....the fears of children in the hood. Sad.

    Peace Sis. Apple Pie.

    I took a look at that video you linked, sad tidings indeed.

    The United Snakes is bad, and it is apparently getting worse?

    For kids to be this articulated about such things at that age, a shame.

    White amerikkka doesn't care about its inner-city black youth.

    Stay alive my people, stay alive.

    One.

    good luck on your paper

    i watched it because you asked me to, the streets are not a virtual world to me, this is real, real people, real pain, but i don't need to watch some
    documentary when i'm living the documentary

    and that's was the whole point of writing this pieces
    this comment is not directed towards you sista pie i appreciate your love and fairness

    this comment is for those who have alot of opinions without the added feature of ducking bullets, those who watch Oz show now they know what jail is like, jail/prison is not some TV show and if you go in with that attitude

    good luck pham yes it is sad that kids have to live this/that it's not pretty

    and that's my point

    people puff their chest out yea, yea i/you know what it is, with the comfort of moving on to the next website

    i appreciate the kids in the film but the filmmaker had a way of showing this as child's play when it's not
