This is the forum for those who believe that there are other options to gangs and violence and hope to see young people make better choices about their future. Where does change begin?

Unread post by ughurdumb » October 13th, 2005, 12:24 am

i am ignorant with this all

what's the point of being in a gang? i mean a group of guys you hang out with is fine, we all have that - but why the violence? why the disrespect?

well u knw there is the good
the bad
the ugly
we have to many issues that one person can not figue out some people can not help them self so u have someone who will do it for u . bottom line is i
some will come back to the hood and lie about geting jump on and some let these women that been messing around and will tell u that they got slap r disrepected for hood reason and out of reaction some will take off .basically
we have to anaylize what we get into especially when u got a hood backing u that u grew up in and they got one to. thats how most wars start and pesonally no one is going to be disrespected thats when the violence come in
back to the issue u got a hood backing you .thats like when u see sports
aint no one plyer geting down all ins runing out there especially in base ball
so u see its all tyes of gang fights. like there is all types of gangs

i mean thats a good thing u hold your own .some people r independent and
there is more people that r not in gangs then there is .
far as people u know aint in gangs thats possible there r many things that cause people not to do what the next man do r men . u know the old saying birds of a feather folck together. some people that r in gang banging aint really in a gang . gangs aint no more violent then cult groups we all got to meet god one day together that will be a gang of poeple standing before the almighty to get judge u feel me .lokk at the debate between what church u go to and the different beliefs that r on earth u think its the same in heaven
i do not think so but we all have r own opinion

let me ask u this if u saw me and your buddy get into it and u do not knw why u just happen to pull up and we just chunking it real tough what would your reaction be???

well we dont get into it - we walk away from the situations - unless of course we are drunk. but id be trying to stop the fight. i wouldnt go kick your ass just because you teo are fighting. i mean that just makes everything worse in my opinion

when u said WE thats the answer to what u do not under stand
u drunk u all will jump me then its a gang more then one person.
but sober u all will walk away thats contradicting your self
right there why u got to be drunk to fight if some one disrespectful they get dealt with period unless u all agree to let it go its still a group decision
u feel me .

im not feeling that because words are words man. nothing more nothing less

if some punk is starting shit with a bro and we walk away thats the end of it. regardless of what that other guy says, we walk away. if we get in a fight then it all just explodes and everyone starts hating everyone else. i think its better to take "the high road" and save yourself and your bros from fighting. but thats just my opinion.

there are some gangs in MPLS, although im not sure of the names. there are tons of asian gangs along with black gangs. i grew up about a half mile from downtown, so i heard shots everynight, but my neighborhood was mostly white (it was the old section of town with big old historic houses).

So did you grow up in a gang neighborhood? Did/do you live in an area that gangs were in you're front yard? Did you go to a school that you had to deal with gangs daily and from dawn till dark? Were you're brother, cousins, maybe even a parent a gang member? If not, I do not blame you for not understanding the why's and reasoning.

Well alot of kids don't have that choice. They have to live in hoods that have gangs. They are born into hoods that have sets and therefore they are basically born into the life and have to figure it out from there.
