Many of you making comments should really think before you speak. No matter what the situation was, another one of our youth has passed away far too soon. I would love to see "Mary" or "Cracker Jack" live one month in the ghettos or the slums. You have no idea how hard it is. Did you ever think that people don't have a choice and have to fight like hell to get out of this life style! We must do what we have to do to survive. Our youth should no be put down for the life that they live but be shown that there is more out there to life. My prayers go out to the family and friends.
These so called ghettos at one time were white neighborhoods and whites lived there just fine. Now they are overrun by savages that don't know how to behave in society. So I guess at one time whites did survive a month in these so called ghettos.

You do have a point. In the past these neighborhoods were predominately (sp?) white and there were standards and values that the people held. Today, unfortuantely, these neighborhoods have become ghettos because of the lack of standards and values. There is no reason for the neighborhoods to become ghettos except for the lack of respect.

Fck yall white ppl not good enuff us black ppl had ansestors who were slaves n died by ur ansestors hands but youth tryna come up however they can you like to comment on their death like u were them u were in there situation....n as far as that dumbass millitary comment n college u want black men 2 go 2 the millitary so more can die you want us non exsistant because we took over "your" lands lol it cracks me up you ppl aren't good enough to be called hater you are absoluetly sad n as far as your mothers go not all of us african americans had mothers that cared 4 us soo we do whatever it takes 2 make sure our kids get out that life style ant even though its a risk our sons and daughters are worth it . You probbaly say that our kids are mistakes and we are stupid for havint them but men like dexter he didn't leave his kids he wuz a father not a daddy a fatherr who cared that much for his kid. Not all of us african americans had dinners around a big round table to share cassorole on a daily basis. We and I speak for most of the african community, sometimes had to get bye and live on a bowl of oodles n noodles or eggs and rice. you can look at our community and snicker but the bottom line is take a walk in our shoes n I garuentee you wil fall bust ur a** and get stepped on but ayyee if the people you hated were better than you at nearly every thing you started I would be angry too. Dun get me wrong this is not for all white people but it is for the haters the racist the rich people that can't step foot in bridgeport or eastside ny or the bronx, brooklyn, chicago, and other ethnic/urban areas. This is being sed by a 13 year old bridgeport resident. But I'm going to say this to all of you who try to put us down we don't die we multiply and were here so either love us or leave us alone.!!

I could not have said this better myself. If you choose to live by the sword, then you die by the sword. It's a simple fact of life and plays over time and again. The problem is that these "rappers", which is the politically correct reference, have absolutely zero respect for human life. They are the first to cry that they are being discriminated by, or should I say disrespected by other races. The truth is that they can't even respect their own people and pull the trigger on each other without the blink of an eye or thought of consequence. You can blame the state, blame the city, blame the mayor or blame whitey, but the fact of the matter is no one is more at fault for this situation more than their own parents! This is true for all races where youth become troubled, then dead.
WELL STATED, JACK!

Once again, I am an African American and from Bridgeport and proud of it.So what! We can do better if we put our minds to it. We need to stop looking for the easy way out of life. our ancestors struggled for us, MLK JR speech " Free At Last" does that mean anything to us? We have to make the right choices not the cops, white, Japanese, Asian etc! It's you and I that will make a difference in the choices that you, me or any other African American makes in our own personal lives. Do we hear ourselves? Look at the comments we are writing. Obama said it's time for a change. We need to change our life styles for the better. Selling drugs to make a better life style is not the answer. It may get you buy for a little while but somewhere down the line it's gonna catch up with you! Come on people, life is too short for the bulls#!@ and pointing the fingers. When you get up in the morning, who said you had to get up and go sell the drugs? Think about it please.

I totally agreee
But I have some questionss for you
1. Did you grow up with both of your parents?
2. Did your mother and father beat u with whatever the moment you stepped out of line
3. Did you go to the best college and high school
4.did you grow up above the poverty line

Understand money makes the world go around and unless us african americans below the poverty line get scholarships the only college were going to is community and even with that type of education
What descent job is available for us
Mc.donalds its not about the fast cars and the good life that's an accesory that comes after sucess and who wouldn't like that
But for me the most important thing for me is making it for myself to get out of here and for the love of music and to end statictics

And enough about having grown up in the "slums." I am so sick of that excuse. Growing up in the slums don't prevent you from getting a job. Every time I come in contact with someone from the ghetto, they cry the same crap. Yet they are able bodied, healthy and upright. They still cry about not getting a job. Heres an idea. Shave the corn rows, take off the FUBU and sgtop blaming everyone else for you being LAZY!

So full of excuses. You need to knock down that wall and move forward. If Black-Americans did not have opportunities out there, there wouldn't be black doctors, lawyers, judges, senators, executives, etc. My mother rose above the poverty line by working nights to get us kids to a better place. It can be done. The only thing stopping you is YOU!
