Description

When I was in the 4th grade we lived on a street called Nebraska on the south side of #StLouis. On our front porch the crips that ran the neighborhood sold crack and shot dice, and black males that didn't live on our street would be beat up if they were caught walking down our street. One day members of another gang shot my bedroom window up on the second floor because they thought they lived in our house. Weeks later the police and swat did a sting on us, armed with assault rifles they ordered us not to move while they searched the house with their german shepherds (no drugs in our house). Everybody from the bottom rise up, don't let the zip code you are born in determine your life.
