Life in the hood as a outsider

Life in the hood as a outsider, meaning one not raised with 'said' mentality, meaning one who had no opinion, good or bad, about those raised in such areas, and or 'worse yet', those who carry around a 'hood' mentality even though don't have to do to better living environment.
But is the 'hood' mentality something 'you' can leave behind, or is it just embedded into the minds of those raised in such places?
True life observations, comments, and moments to follow.
If the shoe doesn't fit, than it should be an educational read, if the shoe does fit, than I don't know what to say other than the truth.

Living in or near the hood can feel like a horror movie, here's why

As you get older, become less cool, less connected to the streets, living in or around the hood can feel like living in a horror movie, especially at night.
Especially when you let your mind wonder, and realize all that's seperating you from what's out there is one lock on front door, or back door and or windows.

I mean think about it, what a thin line or veil of defense, any one at anytime could basically break in whenever they feel like it, even if by mistake.

Well I own a gun', you say to yourself, so what, crazy people don't care, like zombies in a horror movie, crazy people don't care, nor do they think things out, they just act on impulse.

And whether you own a gun or not, just sleeping with that anxiioty of thinking that any second someone could kick down front door, is a lot of stress, gun no gun.

I've had addicts knock on my door all times of the night, cause they mistook my place for a dealer (they eventually busted that dealer or his henchmen anyways)

Remember that one scene from the movie '28 days later'?, where that guy lights a candle inside the house and all those zombies come charging through the window.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-a68r1d9iQ

Yep, this scene right here, the infected were attracted to light, it was a very disturbing scene to watch especially if didn't see it coming.

Well that's how it feels like every night in the hood, or high crime areas, in that have to creep around in own place, gotta be careful what lights you turn on as to not alert 'the infected' to which room your in and so forth.

I mean that's how it feels, that above scene there from 28 days later sums it up, when living in the hood, or any high crime area you just feel at any moment drama could come crashing through your front door or window.

Also, living around people, others, who seem to lack a general respect for life, can take away your faith in humanity, especially if come from a place where life is valued.

It all depends on your social background, where originally raised, is what gives you a measuring stick, but I've learned if raised within the whole single parent, rap music from time in baby crib till adulthood, litter everywhere type environment, than you really have nothing 'better' to measure your current environment by, other than maybe what learned in school and see on TV, and generally observing others, and possible Church, although church not as big an event as it use to be within urban communities, you go to church now and mainly elderly people, widows and ect.

An example, I'll never for the life of me understand the mindset of a person, of any color or area who opens car door in apartment complex and just tosses Fast food meal trash on lot, even though garbage bin 10 feet away.

I'll never get that mindset, to me that's abnormal, but to many others raised in that environment, it's obviously very normal.

Can't tell you how many times new apartment complex will open up, brand new, new sod/grass, prestine clean sidewalks, and some hood type will still liter, through trash on the ground, and think nothing of it, and then complain 'racism' or this ism when people don't want to live around them.

Color has zero to do with it, it all has to do with behavior, and people don't mature, either as a individual or as a 'culture' until they realize that.

I also observe there's a lot of untreated mental illness in the hood as well, but we have plenty of time to cover that in future posts.

One of the scariest, most dangerous places to be at night is an apartment complex parking lot after 10:00 pm in hood areas 

The parking lot of apartment complexes late at night, or after 10 pm, can be some of the deadliest places to be in, that is if apartment complex habitated by certain dwellers.

And this may sound mean, but 'those dwellers' or occupants I speak of are 'SBF's', who themselves qualify to live there, either through Gov assistance or a job, or 'paired' as in roommate situation.

And the reason why I say that cause 1. it's true, based on real life observation and experience.

SBF's living in apartment complexes attract 'hood males', always, and it's always at night when the freaken drama occurs.
And because of that, the more SBF's that occupy an apartment complex, the more dangerous said place is at night, when out of the shadows here comes the unemployed B males lurking around, knocking on the doors, ext.

Like they just come out of caves or something, at night, and into apartment complexes where these SBF's let them in, then have SX, then here comes the fighting, the Jealousy, the noise and so forth.

Not only that but usually these unemployed SBM's have criminal records, and so do the people they hang with, so here they all come pulling up in a vehicle, vehicles, and often use the females apartment as a post to do other illegal things, which draws more shady types.

And residents have to put up with this crap, of all colors, and residents wonder why the leasing office, agents who work there, can't see it, or don't wanna see it, and continue to cycle 'drama' into these places.

If you add up all the homicides in urban areas over the last 2 years, any 2 years, the amount of gun shot violence, death, rivals any war, worse than Corona, yet everyone afraid to say what is true and that is SBF's, if unwed, need to stop having babies who then grow up to harm, maim and ____ others, that's do to poor parenting, not being prepared to be a parent, and other people are suffering because of these reckless behavior.

It's not W mothers who's sons are terrorizing people at night, (In some places with high 'H' populations, same cycle of violence can occur_) but where I stay, not the case, so can only write about what's before me.

I'm sorry, but males who act, dress, and have a gangsta swag by the time their all of 8 years old, sorry, but that's do to poor, lazy parenting....or worse yet, maybe that's just considered 'the norm' by some, who themselves were raised the same exact way, and have no other example to go by.

Either way, the rest of us suffer do to the Government forcing people of different mindsets, or 'class' to live together, and notice I didn't say 'color'?, for I'm a person of color, and simply telling the truth.

And it seems to just be getting worse, dirty rap lyrics have become the new gospel music for those in the slums, or with slum mentalities.

If I were President or ruler, or Governor, I'd bring segregation back, but it would be based on behavior, not color.

And those who wanted to be hood, act hood, with all live in one area, and those who wanted to live quiet respectful lives, would live in another area.

And if any hood type mentality person caught snaking their way into new apartment complex, when caught, would be shipped over seas to a foreign labor camp, along with their offspring.

(I'm drowsy, and when drowsy it's almost the same as being drunk, so let me wrap this up)

I'm just saying it's not 'our' or other peoples responsibility to tolerate other peoples destructive behavior, to tolerate their reckless behavior, inconsiderate behavior, it's not our duty.

I got so much more to say, just to drowsy to say it now, to be continued.

Let the rich and wealthy Politicians and activist who live way out in safe neighborhoods defund their police first, let them volunteer in their own safe communities to not have any police, before forcing that 'no police' nonsense on communities that need the police the most.
