I'm thinking its so sad looking down at my baby because of where we live he is going to get a distorted view of black people. Its already happened with my other two. They are teens and have had their handful of experience. The latest is the bus. They take their school bus when they aren't supposed to just to hitch a ride to the community center....which is way to close to us.
The biggest problem...the fights. 3 Times this year my kids came home late because the bus had to get the police involved...for kids that didn't even belong on there. My kids were afraid. My DD got pushed down into.her seat with one of the fights. There are talk of gang fights across the street in the park....and these are kids my kids go to school with. Its not just the kids either.There is plenty going on all around us. I just quit watching the news and reading our town papers police report section.
We have had so many issues with them and our property. For some reason the kids thought it was OK to drink alcohol in our yard saying." We do.what we want" The disrespect and entitlement is overwhelming here.
And I know not everyone is like this! Its this area! But this is all my kids see. And its sad.
