Sad story. I also think that some type of mental illness/bipolar is involved and was worsened by the abandonment which was made worse since his dad is an international figure and he carries his name.

Im so puzzled b/c his sisters, the twins (same mother) went to top schools, received degrees, are in there careers, one is married to a rich white man...why the hell cant they help their brother out to keep him from being destitute? Im curious about the story behind the story.  When he was shipped off to live with his grandparents while the mom was pursuing actingGeek, I now wonder if they all got split up and he got the short end of the stick while the other siblings got shipped off to more progressive caretakers....who knows, but this is sad that he isnt allowed to see his dad.

Yeah, but Ali didn't know he would get parkinsons. We all get old and would be like crap when we are old, so everyone should not have kids and keep the species alive.

But because he is a he .. Well, the lack of sympathy is hardly surprising



Speaking for myself, I would echo the same sentiments that others have stated if he was a she.  Bad things happens to everyone but what you do in response to it is up to the individual.  If he didn't know how to use the internet, he would be looking for FREE programs that shows you how to use the internet.  Hell I know for a fact that the Chicago Public Library have seminars that teach individual how to use the internet and I think one of three main branches host seminars on how to create a resume.  All you need is a library card.  Someone at the shelter or other NPOs could have hooked him up.  I know there are libraries in the Englewood area.  It ain't nothing but a bus ride away.  In fact, there is a program with the CCC in which he can enroll to get his AS or AA or a cert and I would work the hell out of the career centers that are dispersed around the city.  He can even look into the JVS and they will help him.  If he wasn't so busy blaming others, he would have been in a better situation.  But you know what, there are people who squander their opportunities regardless of who they are.

I know I have my father issues but if I allowed my life to go to sh*t i'm quite sure I would be tole to deal with it. Deal with it enough to get my sh*t together. You a grown woman etc etc etc.  When u get to a certain age blaming your parents...or lack of parent...it don't look right. I know it's scornful but he has been cut off for some time now. Why is this only coming out now? Why didn't this story pop off when Ali was not so far gone? Was he doing aight before so it wasn't an issue? If he's slow then that sucks for him even more and I feel some type of bad for him but...*shrugs* I don't think he's slow tho. I think he is just ...uneducated like for real. no shade.  His quote about sh*t neighborhood etc....it didn't read to me as "he special" just like he gave up on school.

I dont think that he isnt rcving a special pass b/c he is male. I think that most people have seen the 'bad seed' syndrome and think that he has underlying issues. Think Mariah's sister that tried to exploit her, Oprah's sster that tried...A lot of people get left behind by well off parents, siblings, etc including countless bhm members that have told ther stories and though in pain, they went on to get a job and take care of themselves by and by. it sounds like he 'demons' as they say are holding him back from greatness therefore the bad seed syndrome.
