I can't wait to read this thread lol

When I was younger every other Saturday when we didnt have choir rehersal we would go to the projects and have what my parents called a "reach out, cook out." We had to stand in front of our peers and sing "you need to get up offa that cocaine and get up offa that crack, get yourself together and win your mind back...can't you see for yourself what drugs are doing." We brought a drum set abd everything.

It was awful! We would hand out turkey burgers, chips, baked beans and sweet tea. What was so hood about it is that my mom said cheese was too expensive so the kids put cheetos on their dry ass turkey burgers.

We could never do this today because not only did they have to wait to eat after we told them to get off drugs but my dad would preachfor thirty damn minutes. I used to want to diiiiiie!

When I was 10 my mother found out her boyfriend was cheating on her. She busted all his car windows out, later that day our neighbors rang the doorbell and said my mothers man was outside with a gun. We stayed in the house scared all night, but they still made up after all that.

As a child in my hood there wasn't much need for a store, everyone sold stuff. There was the Candy House, Liquor House, Beauty Supply House, Dope House, the laundry matt was even called the Wash House.
In the "Alley" we bought clothes, many sold out of their trunks, sounds odd but if was fun.

I didn't live in the hood but all of my family did so we frequented it a lot. In college, I wrote an essay on how we used to sit on my aunt's raggedy porch playing "that's my car." My professor loved it.

I've said this before but I remember with a dollar we would get a quarter water, bag of chips, nomalaters(now and layers) and a bag of chips from the corner store.

I watched two women(one in a bathrobe and shower cap) fight in the middle of the street

All of this, my aunt didn't even have to write a note. She literally lived right across the street from the store and we would just say that we were getting it for her.

Ever year when certain pop Warner teams play(ed)each other, there will/would be shots fired and families fighting.
