The hood mentality is a crippling disease that attacks your nervous system
It makes you nervous of the system
People in the hood think they cant escape and in return to trying to make it out the wrong way they think of the multiple consequences of their ignorant living in society. Most of the repercussions are major(prison, death, etc) which can occur at just about any moment living this way.
