I mean it's always been like this ... but I never really thought about it ... and hadn't experienced it in a while .... but ... recently ... i started dating a chick from a gutta area ... no problem w/ that ... but ... there is always a group of _s posted up outside ... like 24/7 ... _s are ALWAYS there no matter what time I come through ... and it doesn't help that's she's bourgeois (sp?) and has *deficated* on all these _s before and I always come through on my black boy/white boy. So these _s always got something to say ... you know how _s is saying something to the circle they are in ... but they are PURPOSELY trying to say it loud to try to rile a _ up .... ? [drake] personally i think it's gay if i'm sayin' hi to like eight guys / so i just walk past and keep cool until the hate dies[/drake] Anyways I thought about it ... and it's always been that way. I grew up in a pretty rough neighborhood .... but I had an older sister that everybody knew and ppl to vouch for me so the hate wasn't as crazy as when I got around other hood _s ... but I remember numerous times goin' to my cousin's hoods and _s getting wrong out the mouth not knowing who I was related to and ended up getting their *** handed to them ... but yeah ... It never made any sense to me @ all to hate on any man ... but I promise I can think of hundreds of occasions where _s tried to pull my *** card ... for no apparent reason ... even hood _s I'm cool with throw all kinda shade/salt @ any other _ doin' they thang ... maybe it's just that hood mentality ... I dunno ... I'm tippin' right now ... excruse me ... CLIFFNOTES : why hood _'s hate so much ?
