That's deep right there bro. You should've made a new thread for this & put it in another section.kc10282006 wrote:As a black man, I am sickened by gangs regardless of the skin color of their members. For me, there is not any difference between a white person spreading destruction through acts of violence than a black or brown person. It is repulsive how gangs live off the high of violence, which is the real motivation behind their destructive behavior. Gang members have always been attracted to the destructive force of violence, which eventually is what they end up falling in love with in living out the homicidal (and suicidal) lifestyle of gang banging. Their love for violence is as addictive as any drug. These black, brown, white brothers and sisters that are caught up in the gangs are merely addicts to the drug of violence, and have been seriously afflicted by the sickness which it causes. This is why so many of the minds of gang members seem to be misshapen or misguided by their own false sense of a distorted reality that is bent on destruction. In trying to understand their practice of self-hate, you sense a level of ruthlessness to commit unnecessary acts of violence in the name of street and jail house justice that have been way too chilling and horrific for far too long to ever be accepted, justified, or tolerated by any sane and just society, which I do not claim the US to be. I do claim, that as an adult male who happens to be black and who is living in an America which has a long history of unrighteousness and violence, especially toward my kind, that I am not going to perpetuate the same acts of violence used against me, to justify killing another being over a name of a street that does not belong to me, or ending a life to defend nothing more than a false pride represented by some $2 dollar rag, and I will not kill a person regardless of skin color, and especially if the skin color is the same as mine, over years of years senseless feuding, because I refuse to fall prey to this lunacy. Violence for a gang member is like crack or meth for any addict. We can only end this problem when we recognize that the problem is that the Gangs enjoy the fighting and shooting, and the cheap thrills that come from it, way too much and way too often. This must be stopped by any means, necessary.
