I'm not from around here. One of my kids in middle school has been talking about friends of his that are in gangs and stuff and asking him to hangout. None I've never heard of. I know people say "there are no gangs here" Etc etc... But are there cliques that I should be concerned about that may be causing problems in the area or towards my son?

You wanted the truth.... There's really not much hope. If you are mixed or whatever you're automatically part of that crowd. It's just how it works they will suck them in or make them feel like outsiders. Discipline!!! That's your only hope

Yall need to stop being racist. If there wasn't ignorant white people in this world, there wouldn't really be a need for gangs in KENTUCKY! But no, white people want to gang up on black.mixed/hispanic people, so what do they do? They form a little "gang" to protect themselves from being bully victims. Doesn't sound like such a bad idea when you think of it that way..

You're right ! I just meant the fake little gangs people come up with is partly a defense mechanism against bullying. If you have a 13 year old getting picked on everyday at school and a group of 5 people come up and say, hey if you join our gang, we'll protect you and make sure you don't get bullied or picked on anymore, the kids probably going to say yes. It just makes sense.

Thank You.... And I agree there seems to be a lot of ignorance and people making everything a race issue. Just b/c I'm mixed and so are my kids doesn't mean they are more likely to be involved in gang activity or drugs. It doesn't mean I'm "half" a bad parent or postponing the inevitable.

Teaching my children discipline &respect as well as educating them on people who are different will hopefully keep them from being stereotyped & build good moral character. I appreciate the truth & honesty, but don't appreciate the ignorance just to be funny.

It wasn't meant to be funny. It was true and honest. Tell your kids to get some white friends and they might be alright.
