With each passing day, I fear for the future of the United States. The way things are progressing, this country won't be worth living in very long.
Kids feel entitled to whatever they want, they have no respect for themselves or others & they have no qualms about making choices that could harm themselves & others.
They imitate gang members, rappers & other stars that should never be considered role models for anyone. Folks have become wary of people that dress & act like thugs...for good reason. You never know who is a true thug & who is just a wannabe.
People have become so paranoid about perceived threats that they make poor decisions that cause damage to many lives. Unfortunately, I can understand that paranoia to a degree. You just never know how someone is going to act...all you can do is judge them on their initial appearance.
I just think people need to realize that first impressions mean a lot and if they don't want to be perceived as a thug, they shouldn't dress/act like one.
It's sad that those stereotypes exist...but they do. And people need to learn that they have to adapt to survive in the world today. If the felons & gangsters dress a certain way & that is not who you are, don't dress or behave the way they do.
Just my opinion of course. You're entitled to yours.
