War in Boston

this sucks.

(these 20 murders in 2008 so far do not count "alleged" murders, in which case this list would be way longer)

no, i don't get paranoid...i'm slightly amused by the "gangsta rap" and the mentality of the 'hoods that hang out in front of my place...i bought some pot off one of them some time back, and i give a nod "hello" or say "hi" and wave...
i have lived in a small but growing and somewhat safe suburban city pretty much all of my life so when i moved here last year june, it was quite a shock to my system and it did take some getting used to...
but i can easily adapt and even when my car got broken into twice in less then 3 days - eh...it's where i live and i can't change that unless i hit the lottery and we move from here...
this neighbour is diverse w/asians, very few whites, blacks and lots of mexicans...i'm a mexican that doesn't speak all that much spanish and i live w/a man that hates this place...
interesting dynamic, huh?

Re: neighbourhoods
a lot of that gangsta rap mentality i pretty dumb, and yet some of it is smart. unfortunately, the dumb shit that is said is so enforced in pop culture and teaching all the wrong shit. but there is some really good rap too. but i definitely think a lot of what they are trying to teach is whack and keeping people right where they are, rather than helping to further them.
its crazy around here too with rappers. i think we have a decent balance of some really great and deep stuff out here. the boston scene is not big in the media right now cuz its not about selling products and women and whatever, its actually quite good, and its gonna catch on soon, but unfortunately a lot will sell out then.

anyway, good luck with the lottery. (:
