Its a weird position when you are wearing $5000 in 1 outfit but saying you have no help. How about buy $50 worth of cloths and put $4000 down on a new apartment in a better neighborhood?

This is what stricter gun laws look like. When you're a mother, working three jobs, coming home in the middle of the night in the worst possible neighborhood you need the right to defend yourself. People claim that liberals and democrats care about black people, yet they're the ones taking their god given right of self defense away. So when they do decide to carry anyways, they're a criminal simply because they want to stay alive. It's a system designed to keep the black man down. It's modern day slavery. All the black man is to a democratic politician is a demographic.  Everything that a dictator does, we're doing to the black man in Chicago. You take away everything they have, then give them everything they need in the form of a welfare check. Make them depend of the government. Except we're not rounding them up for extermination like Hitler or Stalin would've done. We're creating a culture where they do that to themselves.

British people want the average American to give up our guns. Screw you. People like this are the exact reason we carry guns. Guns are banned in Chicago like the uk did. Look how it’s working. I will keep my gun. Hope I never have to use it but, I’m not going to be a victim either.

Chicago plan built new Obama Library cost $175 million taxpayers. Why American taxpayers have to pay for Obama library! This is unfortunate for American taxpayers, and is scrap... Consequently, after eight years of Obama in the White House. his had increased double debt crisis for the American people, and also divided America society more than any previous President before him. What the benefit of American progress after eight years of Obama...

FOR THE BY&BY
FOR THE BY&BY

A WHITE WOMAN’S PERSPECTIVE: Here is the thing, one man said he basically won’t work for $8/hour. My father worked three jobs to support our family of eight. My mother also worked. I’m sure he didn’t want to work three jobs, but he had to quit high school to support his siblings, so he had no education. He didn’t resort to stealing, going on welfare or anything else. He worked very, very hard. I’ve been workin since I was 10 years old (paper route). I had three jobs at one time and was a reservist so I could get an education. So, this doesn’t make sense to me. I feel like it’s an excuse. How many men did you see sitting around on porch stoops doing NOTHING but smoking weed and carrying guns. As tired as they are with their lives, I’m tired of all the excuses. I’m sick of being robbed and abused by people like this. If they don’t try to help themselves, how is ANYONE going to help them? The people I feel so sorry for are the children. They live what they see. Period. So if you want to make a change, get off your ass and do the RIGHT thing. Stop having babies with all different women. Take care of the ones you do have. Be a parent. Be responsible. Teach them differently. There are all kinds of resources out there, but you need to be willing to do the hard work. You all are killing yourselves, but blame slavery and everyone else for your plight. It starts with YOU.

From what I heard in the interview, everyone seems prett eager to make big money. Working a normal job for a normal wage and then through investment and saving work themselves to a better position in a couple of years seems not interesting to the people from this interview. Perhaps this ”get rich quick or dont bother at all” mentality is stoping a lot of people from going anywhere?

I live in a area of Chicago known as the Wild Wild 100's. With the exceptions of certain neighborhoods its not this crazy war zone the media portrays it to be. The reason crime is so bad is because 1. all the top gang leaders have been put away, and 2. The bum lazy CPD NEVER patrol the side streets and neighborhoods, EVER, until they get a call that someones been shot then they drive into the neighborhoods

part of the issue is just a gradual dumbing down of the culture and the trivialization of certain aspects of life. their grandfathers started the gangs to protect themselves from police violence, their fathers turned it into music and art to escape or shed light on their environments but now all that's left are the kids who glorify the more brutal aspects without any of the meaning behind their initial inclusion

That's sad, they blame everyone else! I'm black and Cuban and live in Omaha Nebraska and if I lived in circumstances like that I'm moving to another city, even if I have to start from scratch (I've done it plenty times in my own city) I'll take a few hundred dollars and move! I mean this is America and if you can't find a decent way to live here then you won't be able to live anywhere! The reason why nothing gets done is because there constantly blaming others. Instead they should look at resolving the problem themselves (which could take time to get it right) instead of pointing fingers! Even if it is others that's contributing in causing there problem, acknowledging that doesn't fix it! All the while they're pointing fingers there literally making things worse! If you have to use a gun to defend yourself do it, but there making a choice to go beyond that and glamorize there life style. Instead of condoning and accepting it, they should turn that energy around and use it to fight against it. It starts with you, (like Mike J said) yeah they might need a little help like the guy said! Guidance is definitely what they need but they have to look at the possibility of that not happening and focus on asking themselves what should I do, until they at least solve the problem for themselves! I mean there not living in a communist/facsist country, we still have the best resources and opportunity in this country then most! We also have the ability to do what we want, so it's crazy how there stepping in there own way and preventing themselves from making positive change without even knowing it! I believe the main guy talking should at least get a job save up a little bread (hustle if needed) and move his family somewhere safer in the U.S! That's where it has to start with us guys, if not your fear of your family won't go anywhere because there looking to there daddy to fix the problem! Your own fear won't go anywhere either waiting for a miracle, taking baby steps in solving a problem that's been around for a while is the best start, and in time (with the right decisions) the effort that's put in to turn things around will definitely pay off! It will only happen if those who really want it too start trying! Let me illustrate: so if I wanted to to become a lawyer but I never go to school or study to become one, then I should never expect it to happen! If there's nothing that these people are actively trying to do to change there lives around then they'll never get where they want to go! Fix the present day for a better future (I just made that up)😀 yes! I hope they figure it out!

They don't want to contribute to society. They expect to live off mine and your money. They're proud and believe is "cool" to do what they're doing so why not? Let them poison one another with drugs, guns and HIV. They're just a waste of space. I'm not racist I'm a factionist. In other words I'm just "keeping it real".
