The problem is older role models glorifying drug dealing and other crimes. That's all that some kids get to see to aspire to. It's awful. Generation after generation. Probably by the time they can think and do for themselves they have been indoctrinated. To them, making thousands in cash selling drugs is being successful.

Yeah, but not all young people are so impressionable. Maybe there were just more PR blitzes about resisting peer pressure back when I was young, but I work with a lot of people both older and younger than me that come from the same environment and nevertheless chose the legal life over the thug life.

It's crazy to even contemplate at that age: drug dealer or go to college. And who inspires them and supports them.

You don't necessarily have to go to college. Like I said earlier, even a minimum wage existence -- as shitty as it can be -- is preferable to being either dead or in prison.

And college is more attainable than a lot of people think. You don't need to be a straight-A student to get PELL grants, and federally-subsidized loans can make a huge difference. It's not Ivy-league education, but a lot of that is hype and prestige which is completely extraneous when it comes to getting a good degree in a viable field. And of course, there are other forms of government assistance -- with which I admittedly and thankfully have no personal experience -- that can help alleviate some of the financial stress of higher education.

Plus there's also the military. You wanna be a badass? Then join the Marines. They'll feed you, quarter you, make you a legitimate badass, and help you figure out how to be a productive member of society.

In other words, there are options for support. Inspiration is trickier, and there's no general answer to that question because it varies from person to person; but it's out there to be found if someone wants it bad enough.

But in all of that, there's challenge; and I think that's what a lot of it comes down to: dealing drugs and gangbanging are lazy ways to make a "living," but you still have to deal with the stress of constantly looking over your shoulder and staying a step ahead of Johnny Law. So either way, there's no real easy way; there's always a trade-off, but staying out of the thug life greatly improves one's odds of survival.

Metal Mike You are right. It's just a shame more parents don't encourage their children to do more or at least something else.

Well, you're also dealing with a broken education system when it comes to children who are products of low-income environments. Thr sad truth is that there are too many teachers who are more concerned with their union benefits and protections than they are with educating and inspiring their students; and the good teachers out there wind up getting overwhelmed and burnt-out when they realize that they're fighting a losing battle against twin fronts of worthless parents and pervasive thug culture.

Again, it comes down to motivation and inspiration; and there are too many people -- be they children or parents and educators -- that do their damndest to approach life on the front lines of society as the picnic that they think it should be as opposed to the civil war that it actually is.
