Ain't nothing gone change until the people in the hood change, I'm from deep east oakland 90th Ave bae boy, I been thru it, I sold it, I drove it, I shot it, I got into a lot of bullshit and I was considered a good kid in my hood, my grandparents raised me the right way in the wrong part of town. So when I hit the streets around 14, I wanted to have paper and girls liking da boy and all that, thats what I saw, so I did that but as I grew up homies kept dieing and going to the penn, so I took my ass to college, got my degree, for real, I changed  a lot of my ways, made better choices, see I had people who told me right and cared about me but some of these niggas don't, they parents on dope so they raised themselves, they know nothing but this bullshit, so all the ones with sense hopefully make it to the point where they make better choices and let the rest kill off each other, sorry but that's just how it is right now.

I'm from Oakland and all tho the video tells stories its making Oakland look average when its really a lot worse. My cousin was killed in those streets so was a few of my friends, I had guns pulled to my head praise God I'm still here, the guy toward the end of the viseo is my friend son and he was killed smh sad. And although The sideshows fun its dangerous. It only takes one person to do something dumb and its a domino effect. I pray for the people to change its not so much the streets, its the people that's running the streets. Pleas God heal the minds of the People.

what i learned from this video 1. Jobs shut down 2. Without jobs people go crazy 3. Who supplies those jobs the government 4. it seems like its the governments fault that there is no oppertunities 5. But its also the peoples fault for putting a value on paper 6. who forced the people to put  a value on paper? the government 7. So ultimately its the governments fault 8. Conclusion, government don't give a shit about you boy, so instead of killing one another to war with the government

If I made as much money as "Pretty Black" I would get my ass up out of that cesspool. I would move into a condo somewhere and invest that money like Jay Z did.  It's insane to own and park a Hummer and a Lamborghini on the street, IN THAT CESSPOOL and not expect a hater to do something to your property, or you.

Crazy seeing the my old neighborhood on a doc about violence. This shit is for real- no exaggerations. Most violent place I've ever been, i had to get out, but that's still my home. Wish these docs talked about how it is for women of color in Oakland too, though. We deal with at that mess but while being smaller, (usually) weaker, possibly pregnant or raising kids, and much more likely to be raped.

I'm sure these upstanding citizens paid for their hospital bills and not have to rely on tax payer dollars.
