With education being in the toilet, more money spent on defense than any other country on earth, the lure of money from drugs and gangs gives pretty much the only hope most poor men have. Parents can do as much as they can but when compared to what kids see on TV and the movies, they stand little chance. My guess is things probably won't change anytime soon. It is sad to see the disparity grew in this country and so much being lost. Not sure how bad it will get before it gets better.

People don't give a shit BC they black yes but if these fucked up politicians that Oakland gets actually gave a damn shit could us being black our futures are put in hands of others that come from something but being in the hood us blacks come from nothing. I said all that 2 say this if you're not from here u will never know and if you're not black you will never know the struggle of what us black folks go thru day in and day out living in the streets of Oakland
