Peace and respect! I am not one to judge another. I do however want to offer some very logic reason not to be a drug dealer and stay out oh the street life. I am not trying to parent or police anyone. I simply wish to influence anyone headed in t e wrong direction and hopefully detour someone who could Make a huge mistake.
•why destroy ones own community for profit? It’s not worth it.
•fast money is not always good money.
•your “boys” will tell on you when they get caught and if they don’t, then those tiny cameras in the many public locations will.
•when the ish hits the fan, you WILL do time ALONE. That bad chick is not comin through cause she moved on to another “baller” and your boys are also locked, dead or free cause they got you dumb behind locked up.
•these rappers are liars! Real criminal don’t BROADcast their dirty deeds.
•IRS is not playin about them taxes.
•blacks always get more time.
•a damn good lawyer is not cheat.
•while you are ballin outta control, a whole case has been built against you and by the time they get you to court you won’t have a chance.
•RICO(racketeer influenced and corrupt organization).
•being a petty hustler is not a path leading to the top, you don’t get to retire.
•many drug dealers don’t live past their mid 30’s
•it’s an overall, miserable existence. They call it “the trap” becuase the brothas really on the block really are trapped.
If you are a hustler than you shouldn’t need to hustle drugs. You better hustle some oils or some soaps. While experiences are good to learn from, the street life is not all it’s cracked up to be. I know rappers love to glorify that ish but check it, if these dudes is are so rich than why would they be in the streets. Do you really think Jay z is risking everything to be on the corner or T.I, king if the south is really
trappin and he rich as hell. That would be as senseless as Barack Obama gangbang. Throwin up the W tellin the White House, please! Think for yourself and be your own king/queen!
I hope all of you are well! How do you feel about raising kids in poverty? I want to share my point of view and hopefully hear from you all!!
As a woman born into a struggling, single parent house I can relate to the many issues that come with poverty. My parent, due to a disability has been on fixed income and will most likely remain there if not for some sort of miracle. My sibling and I were always provided with the basics though the household tended to be full of turmoil. I never understood how people who are already have struggle, choose to have kids like that would make life an easier.
I get it, shit happens! But is there not a thing called responsibility? I understand that many folks hold deep desires to raise children and all of that. I just don’t see the purpose in having them knowing you can’t really enjoy them or provide them With a half way decent life.
Life can get better! But is it not a better idea to be a better established individual prepared for anything that may happen, able to set up funds for them to have a fighting chance, show them the world or at least something other than their backyard, provide them an adequate education and healthcare, an over all good life? That us what I strive for. I also want to take the time to find a man that will be the father of my children and not just the “baby daddy” or worse “that nigga who ain’t do shit yet.”
Many folks, especially blacks, have kids with less progressive folks and wonder why we haven’t quite faired like we would’ve liked to. I believe in black love and black babies. However, I also believe that if we are not smarter and continue settling for less, we deserve to live in ghettos struggling. If you keep doin what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. We have do want better and do better. Even more important we have to want to do better!
