How can anyone learn in an environment of such fear? Terrified to walk to school, to show you are smart and want to learn, being bullied by other youth, teachers terrified of being attacked by students. Its a gang society, run by those who are meanest, and it will get worse with every black child raised by a single mother in poverty who hasn't been taught how to raise a child herself. The entire group has to get smarter to live a better life; but it's so much easier to do drugs, sell drugs, sell their bodies, be bullied into protecting and providing for the gang leaders, collect a welfare check, and cry 'poor me, I'm a victim'. They've got to get the gang leaders out of the neighborhoods for good. Clint Eastwood said 'get off my lawn' .
