There’s no way you can write or catalog people that live in the hood without being incredibly racist sounding. Well its a scientifically proven fact that everyone is racist in the sense that we all have preferential logic towards our own race. So you’re racist. Im racist. Wait…are we using this word correctly? I don’t care about people that I don’t care about. If you’re not in my circle of friends and family I simply do not give a fuck about you. It definitely does not matter what your race is. So now that we’ve cleared that up, lets discuss.
“Thug” kids. These are the most dangerous, dumbest, worst people on the planet. Highly and I mean so incredibly highly susceptible to any type of affectation the media that they’re exposed to impresses upon them. They listen to music, watch shows, and hang out with people that want to be a certain way. This “thug” way. So they too want to be “thugs” and typically because in their lives they are exposed to NOTHING else this sticks so hard to them. No one ever asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. No one ever cared about a career path and long term life plan for them and they didn’t even make it through high school. The only way to deal with this type of person is just to avoid them. Let them keep to themselves and the police. Every human seeks ways to be special and unique. And if this is the only way ever presented to them, while not special or unique, it’s a way of being something, they stick to it like a rat in a glue trap.
Drug abusers. These make up a very high percentage of people living in the ghetto. There are two classes. Functional and non functional. Functional can have jobs, even if for a little bit. Non functional typically cant hold jobs more than a day, if that, and find other way of making money or just getting drugs like theft. Theft is so huge. Theft of retailers like Best Buy or Wal-Mart pays for drug addiction in this country. If you don’t believe me you just don’t know any better. They steal. They steal so much so often and from so many different places that they can pay for drugs. They get cents on the dollar for what they steal and they can afford drugs. Drugs are cheap. If they steal a $200 GPS they can sell it super easy for $20-30 dollars. That buys a relatively small amount of drugs that will last them the day. Functional drug users, typically just alcoholics fit into this category, work for a living. You will be asked outright many times living in the ghetto if you have or know anyone that can get X or Y drugs by complete strangers. That’s normal. Just say, “No, sorry.”
Normal people. It’s hard to find normal people in the ghetto. If you do they’re typically just in a bad way. Or they never really cared about making money and having careers and were happy just doing whatever. There’s not really much to say about them. Other than that many people will seem normal and when you get to know them they fit into the drug abuser category.
Sex traders. Girls who sell sex and men who sell sex are highly dangerous. They have AIDS. They might not actually have AIDS. But assume they do. Don’t give in. Just keep telling yourself this person has deadly STD’s. Something like 1 in 5 men in this country who have sex with other men have HIV. And more than half of them don’t know it. Those are just men who have sex with men. That’s not even prostitutes. A gay prostitute absolutely has HIV or AIDS.
I can’t think of anyone else right now. That kind of fits everyone.
