a reality right here. it's not like just some. so right now you're still is baltimore this is looks old housing projects everyone live close together close together so everybody know each other around it as you can see is a rough neighborhood drugs police brutality high crime rate and diet what we eat this is messed up we don't have good food around here to eat you have grocery stores where families like buy snacks like mills high poverty. low education rate. tain pregnancy. a lot of killings mindless
shooting round here a lot of my friends lost their lives. in this neighborhood. people can't get a job they sell drugs spray here you know wave of people to come boom boom boom boom boom boom. you know and that's how they make winning is uncontrollable you got to survive look. look it's a jungle so an example you've got to act like a lion amongst other lines that act like a beast a must 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 fluster it it in they don't know how to express themselves that was cool of ballots the government designed these housing projects and they keep people suppress.
i 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 the 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 toe 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 douglas 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 up 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. in the columns of a motivation and more importantly gives them an opportunity to explain. a lot of kids look up to athletes and entertainers so he want to be rappers for the next le bron james or they want to be their neighborhood against them in the neighborhood drug deal that's fascinating into so kids they get
a chance to see in their bombing and they have options like evil you selling crack rock or you got to we can jump shot in order to excrete the hood. market and. it's. going to let. me go for the. soldier i got planned for today. it's just a little bit of this was the. deal and she. let me also so my dish out before . us was for months 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 remember we're united states of america. i did states.
this whole area was black so what happened was they put dead highway didn't care to put the highway right down the middle right smack down the middle. of this most prosperous inner city community called jackson ward which actually was named black wall street this was prosperous and then they divided it right here and as we crossed 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 owned 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 as we see the difference here books cease government housing. no 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 were forced to do for ourself 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 rough. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist
we can all middle of the room signals. from the real news group. there's a lol low number of opportunities here in western pennsylvania as well as to not only did our industries move but a lot of our people moved as well which forced even more businesses to move it's extremely difficult to run a business in a place like home or just because one there's not 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 mr bundy has been there you know making. making those donuts for
for kids to make sure that they have food before they were just cool for for 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 be a constant presence in that neighborhood despite what has gone. on their good or bad you know i am very compliant we're homeward. lutherans from but if you have read earlier i don't see any new bridges coming in right now. big companies of three. from way
maybe meet your quota here were never a company called for. five hundred years you know you're already been out of here. you know. that's just a tough around the the guns and murders did take place right south avenues one of the busiest roads in western pennsylvania is one of the longest and strangest roads so people arrive from the a fluent neighborhoods outside of western pennsylvania and they ride through 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 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.
most number one. most one of the capital murder. something great. we'll talk about your food and how it impacted because you. thought it was thought it was. the gas saw you know how it all enough the solid food. so make a living. while the save. face i was so when i saw. a house with. cats ahead i want to. do is like. to have a new behavior. you know. what i. got . you know we know. we had a bottom you have to. make
a name for yourself right now with capital that is comparing it to like a war zone. if you're shy of baltimore you need to do. is call me crazy yeah. it was. 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 two thousand and eleven as a result of that experience to. when i made the decision to start doing what i do what i did it was a basketball team start to focus more in on my basketball career. in basketball it's a competition with yourself. you
have the coffee 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 amongst your team and other people. it's about all motion you and the environment. is a game of skill it's a game of aggression. and physicality where you're forced to tremble you're supposed to shoot. or force and do a lot of things that people take for granted in every day movement it's. just that that passion that i've been able to maintain from much out of it and carry over that's in my adulthood is what us or our needs be so much different than everybody else and create an opportunity where people say that we could hope to work to find
other children in the father's neighborhoods primarily in home where i start as a consumer bill 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've done if not hopefully take it further and further and further down . it will be also right now as a war zone. and to many people every day out every day i don't want to stick my life usually put up are you to somebody and that's another fatherless show i said no the one who will be meaning come home us a mother who got to in time to see what mothers have to very deeply and that's just
that their finances this plan is not to put it i don't want to see people getting children miss where you griego i don't need to see people getting to russia. should i want to see people you shouldn't feel that those. primaries based on no drug use. you know people who didn't kill for anything. ninety five percent of the crimes. or least eighty five percent of croutons is drug related. you know we're a weirdo right now currently where 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 here and will and
the edge of the east coast so a lot of things come through the ports and stuff 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 i'm just a wee for a while scuse me you know that's a don't. mean you know got some coke or scuse me you know got some pills. right now in the community is going through a change because it changes going on in his community because john hopkins in a realistic. 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 solved everything is of all species right now 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 the poor people out to the county out this way so homeowners. they give them vultures in voters meaning give you access to another house if you don't have the pain the money just moved in on him 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. best change and 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 cause they go get food at a market mail mistake yet if you're on the welfare you want to have their donald trump basket piece in you like a basket full of food that you government yeah so you can't there's no more purchases things are changed. 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 speaking bedouin you want to live 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 will never be there for them financially and it never has. the fingers together you're going to squeeze your hand in and make sure your finger stays off sure. to go into this position and then make sure you set your hand in properly bring the gun up and keep it i love ok all right so the thought of it all old sea level ok forget what you saw in
a movie so great if you shoot the way to shoot it in movies you'll never get anything. country has gone into a nihilistic theme. i think and hit the road and get out the traveling across america to find what makes america the charlatans the genius of this place especially american hero this is and we come to a point on which element is done so we always are on the margins something. called the culture listening party. where starting last with is going to headed east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast and i think i want to leave now doesn't get any more ground on the left it
may be completely different and in this. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home field where everything is familiar on the other i want to the new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising us all one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to go. by the way what is it that flying here. the maternity town the slums go in and you may never get out some sort of people this is proof. of.
my teenage gang rules here. i don't want to do to move there no nothing mind. you were. but. name new. tool. for. minors. and no food. in the n.f.l. the way. you do when you're. music. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it shocking you look at almost every other country it's kind of inching up on one side of the chart
and then as an outlier is the united states is way over here and it's all crashing down from the drugs from having junk food having junk culture having junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the numbers it's clear. another ten billion weeks of venezuela both russian and u.s. resolution is to resolve the country's crisis fail at the u.n. security council on washington's economic pressure. to transfer the european h.q. a base for main oil fund to most good. strong seas a sixteenth weekend of yellow vests movements on rats.
