just deterring it because of the traffic of drugs and with that a little bit of violence people get shot. mel is undercover because. it's different drugs different drugs pills pills pills are very popular these days very popular pills are very pop a mother don't feel safe would bring her son here to maybe take him again. so this over time things kind of deter it does one down. to make it seem miles up this way to the most nicest neighborhoods of pennsylvania more remarkable could be trying to. lower marion barry

stores where families like buy snacks like mills high poverty. low education rate. tain pregnancy. a lot of killings money is sitting around here a lot of my friends lost their lives. in his neighborhood. people can't get a job they sell drugs spray here you know waves of people come boom boom boom boom boom boom. you know and that's how they make money is uncontrollable you got to survive look. look it's a jungle so an example you got to act like a lion amongst other lines that act like a big amount of the beast so this is survival of the fit is at the rose form you have to survive people minds can expand. if they're close together to fly straight
it and they don't know how to express themselves that was full of ballots the government designed these housing projects and they keep people suppress. believe that the environment that you grow up into is a huge part as to what you experience you know i as well as what you become when you grow up. oftentimes in pittsburgh people die in specific locations they utilize the flowers and teddy bears or create
a memorial on spot. so hopefully as a reminder to continue to reinforce why. not going the negative route or the dark route. in my adult life i've had six friends that have never heard of you gun violence in homewood. one was working as a bartender at a local bar and a patron came in and decided to shoot him inside the bar another young woman named jenny's tall and she was murdered in a bar of the street from the y.m.c.a. because she didn't want to give her phone number to a gentleman that was there and then there's another one of our friends named frederick douglass that was murder right on on frank's on avenue not sure for what for what reason exactly but all these places are within. two minutes of the y.m.c.a. which is unique because that's where a lot of our kids go. basketball
is a easy game for kids to pick on because all you need is a vast. you can get lost in the game for hours or years or even a lifetime for some people like michael jordan or kobe bryant. people columns on a motivation and more importantly to give them an opportunity to explain. a lot of kids who look up to athletes and entertainers so even want to be rappers
for the next le bron james or they want to be their neighborhood gangsta the neighborhood drug deal that's fascinating into so kids they get a chance to see in their environment and they have options like evil you selling crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot in order to excrete the hood. market you know. it's going to. give me hope for the. soul which i got planned for today. is what is some of the best of these aussie. people and she's. coming also so my dish out before. most. let me tell you what you guys cannot be a real bad people. all
of the reasons were because there was division you know and the principle behind dividing that's why members were united states of america divided states. this whole area was black so right smack down in the middle. of this most prosperous inner city community college jackson ward which actually was named black wall street this was prosperous and then they divided it right here and as we cross over into this section you want to see the transition. government housing became high crime drugs everything in addition to the highway as i mentioned some of the black own businesses left their businesses to go to other areas this area right here and then became the ghetto this is one of the high crime areas right now and as we see the difference here book sees government housing. you know businesses.
welfare food stamps you get hooked you get hooked and basically you just barely get along and you're living off of the government see blacks did better when we didn't get help. we were getting help we did better because we had to we're forced to do for ourselves where you start giving people help and paying them then this what happens these people are used to a check which is only enough for them to live in this kind of condition who wants to open up a business in a high crime area. because then you get robbed. i do think the numbers mean fuck they've matter u.s. is over one billion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime there. did.
eighty five percent approval will you loan to the old blue ridge eight foot six percent world market grows your personal somewhat four hundred to five hundred three first circuit per circuit and this one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers will be. the only number you need to remember one one business should you know bored to miss one and only boom books. the folks who pride the money when they want more money they just print more money they don't rely on the workers to go and produce stuff that they have to go sell and then make a profit on the stuff they sell to go sell and then make a profit on the stuff they sell you don't see that the car this journey was become financial eyes to see that the property market anymore spent financial eyes you don't see the manufacturing in the us has been exported to china and financial
lives commodified securitized and american as a worker is completely redundant the same as they are around the world so that wages are converging and they converge at the wages in china so china wages are roughly i think four or five thousand dollars a year this is where the american wages are headed. with made goods manufactured consent to consume to the public will. when the room in close is protect them so. when the crime and merry go round lifts only the woman. who ignore middle room signals. to the real news group.
what are seeing images and hear things with your doors. are see people who are afraid not see these young with some women in these ways purposes and i see there are some movies here. good movie. and all the other whole or that is the color of their skin that's all they have going for them so their white skin. there's a low blow number of opportunities here in western pennsylvania as well as so not only did our industries move but a lot of our people moved as well which forced even more businesses to move basic strongly difficult to run a business in a place like home well just because one there was not a a lot of people there and then too the people there don't have the necessary means
to take advantage of extra things one of the unique businesses that has been able to been a steadfast place to look to and home with i think they're you know at least fifteen years old and mr a mr bundy has been there you know making. making those donuts for for kids to make sure that they have food before they went to school for four generations upon generations so even in those situations where if mom and dad couldn't take care of kids knew that they could go to the bakery and grab a donut or grab something to make sure that they had so food in order to get through today so. i don't know how they did it but they found a way to to be a constant presence in that neighborhood despite what has gone.
oh and they were there good or bad you know i don't have any complaints we're home over here. with their neighbor or lives here and there are some bridges are everywhere barrier i don't see any new businesses come in right now a couple big companies k.f.c. . from way maybe meet their quota here whatever company calls for you know they've been gone for you know five six years you know i thought long they've been out of here. you know. that's just a tough par in a round the guns in murders that take place right out avenues one of the busiest roads in western pennsylvania is one of the longest and straightest rows so people ride from the a fluent neighborhoods out on the side of western pennsylvania and they ride through hollywood through traffic every single day to go to work which is crazy if you go on a news it'll say you know somebody got murdered in the home of
a so it's not a place that you want to pull over and stop and maybe grab a donna and coffee rather than the same traffic. you know. we've got here is the most number one ballots you know most one of the capital murder. something's not so great. to talk about your food and how will it impact because you thought hostages thought it was sixty dollars thought it was thought it was sixteen out of the gas saw you know how it all enough to sell a food amount so make a living now was that. while the slave say it's all we got what was feast i was actually so what. is fun that's. so the big committee guy think about it everybody cuts ahead and want to cut their head which it sounds to. all
you do is like controlled the habits when you behave but i'll city you know what we used to get out of pools are we going to soldier that's what i. got a club. you know we know. we had a bottom you have to climb all the way to how. to make a name for yourself l primary right now was so hot. that is comparing it to like a war zone actually nice a more severe shot of baltimore. in saudi arabia. is probably crazy yeah. whole crowd a lot of people. my senior year i found out i was having a baby by a woman that i wasn't going to marry so i dropped out of school was living out of my parents' house was broke and started dabbling in some things that i didn't need to dabble and put myself in
a situation to almost be murdered in two thousand and eleven as a result of that experience that's when i made the decision to start doing what i do what i did it was a basketball team start to focus more on my basketball career. basketball it's a competition with yourself. you have to conquer yourself. it's a game where you have to learn to share and play with your teammates and more importantly compete against the other team as well as the environment. when people think about the ball they don't look at it in that aspect where you break it down because it's a personal battle it's a battle of monks your team and other people. it's about almost you and the environment. it's a game of skill it's a game of aggression. and physicality where you're forced to cripple your foolish.
forced to do a lot of things that people take for granted and every day. is that that passion that i've been able to maintain from my childhood and carry over into my adulthood is what us allowed to be so much different than everybody else and create an opportunity where people say we could work to find other children in the father's neighborhoods primarily in homes where i started up as marble it's to teach them how to harness that energy and maintain that energy into their adulthood so then they can continue like i said to do some of the things that i'm it's not take it further and further and further.
so will be also right now is a war. if you lose and to many people every day out there we day i don't want to stick my life in philly put up are you to somebody and that's the nub of his show as another woman who who many come almost a mother who got to i'm tired of seeing what mothers have to bury the blacks on earth and that's just it isn't as is is plain as i can put it i don't want to see people getting killed and miss where you griego i don't need to see people getting killed and russia i damn sure don't want to steal your children for those. primaries based on no drugs. you know people who didn't kill the anything. ninety five percent of the crimes. or least eighty five. when the crowd is drug
related. you know we're a weirdo right now currently we're the number one. murder capital in united states we also number one in her way addiction here. why because we have the port which is right there we're willing to the edge of the east coast so a lot of things come through the ports just the way kids get involved with drugs growing up and in a city soon as you step outside your door. being go you're right there. actually some i may add when you step outside your door scuse me do you know what i'm just a wee from scuse me you know that's a don't. mean you know got some coke. me you know got some pills. right now in the community is going through a change because it changes going on in this community because john hopkins in
a real estate value is going up so a lot of these residents is not going to be here to do too much longer and they're going to bring in the good food because it's already southwest everything is about spacing right now and everything so you've got well you've got wealthy people living next to lake poor people. so eventually to poor people it's going to get it's going to it's not going to be around anymore. they're moving a poor people out to the county this way so homeowners. they give the voters and voters meaning give you access to another house you don't have the pain the money just move right on it but the thing about it you may be away from the city. so right now in this city there's a growing. epidemic of just like well the conflict is. is no
inclusion for the people as they are ready. best to call flick the conflict is there's no inclusion everyone does a resident right now. they're not included in no future plans best the conflict. desk changing because donald trump done it up donald trump is sending you oh basket full of contaminated food it already had to end in there and people do not like so donald trump has really stepped in and a lot of people who really have freedom of choice you don't have a freedom of choice which you know you're eating with the government giving you can usually call it a go get food at a market mail mistake yet if you're on a welfare and you want to have the donald trump basket piece and you like go a basket full of food and she in government get it so you can't there's no more
purchase things are changing in the rich want access to the city. in with that comes. ginger vacation a lot of things get exposed right now. you know. a lot of people go to church. and. you know they give offerings and you know i'm a speak in bed on the religion or i'm just going from my observation but at the same time when they're in the. same people that they were a lot of dispersed. never be there for them financially and never has a. key figure. to gether you going to squeeze in and then make sure you figure stays off
the true motive to go into this position and then make sure you set your hand and properly bring the gun up and keep it i love ok all right so the top. of the old saying well ok forget what you saw in the movie sorry if you shoot the way bishop in a movie you'll never get anything. i think. lost its moral compass or maybe we have to put more values into the system my personal opinion this we have to strengthen by two national multilateral institutions living in the dock dock ruled it's like a home lucille scream having always in all action and come to action there and so
