First, I would like to say that it saddens me to hear of the death of Yetunde Price--the eldest Williams' sister... sometimes this kind of stuff just makes you want to holler! But, if anyone here is from Compton--What is it really like there? I am a bit jaded... I don't listen to the media hype about how a people are(meaning the residents) or a place...without first hand knowledge.... Just looking at the images on the screen it doesn't look like the worst place in the world---the community looks to be pretty well taken care of etc... it looks a bit calm... Is this the home of rampant gang activity, drug activity, and all kinds of criminal behaviors.... I'm just wondering....What about grassroots orgs. combating this? We are being killed figuratively and literally by outside forces each and everyday....Yet, we are their biggest supporters....Suicide.
