I'll tell you my biggest pet peeve
You lookin at it thinkin like, "It don't affect me"
Referencing those in the suburbs who sit back and watch the news in the line above, he claims what bothers him the most are those that see all the travesties of the ghetto or of the world around them and have a very individualistic mindset. Instead of helping others based on simple moral obligations, we choose not to get involved because of our selfish ways.
Basically what bothers him most is the selfishness of humans. This may also be a critique of the American Capitalist mindset that many argue has fostered very self-driven people that often refuse to help others claiming that ‘if they can make it you can as well’. As far as “it don’t affect me” goes, this may reference the attitude toward Africa, what he mentioned earlier, where we all came from yet many view it as too far away to be worried about, geographically as well as economically as much of it if not all of Africa is 3rd world.
