 In The Hood (86 hits)
I was born in the hood and I am going to die in the because I love the hood. There have been lawyer's, doctor's, and school teacher's come out of the hood. So what's wrong with the hood? The only thing that's wrong with hood is that the lawyer's, the doctor's, and the school teacher's didn't come back to the hood and this is unacceptable, because they could have came back into the hood and build the hood up to look more presentable. I use to run like the wind in the hood so free, I use to play with all my friends in the hood, jumping rope, playing marbles, and standing on the street corner singing a song to our near by neighbors passing the street corner in the hood. We had so much fun in the hood but now we are grown and we all went our own separate ways. I never left the hood because I can deal with the hood and all of its problem that comes with the hood. See I love Fort Pierce I am a part of Fort Pierce and it is a part of me and will always be. I love the town with a deep passion although we have so many issues with such as social, racial,jobs, and these are just a few. However, if we can ever come together as one in the hood we can resolve our issues in the hood.

Just put neighbor in front of it and what do you have? Weren't the people in the house next to yours in your hood neighbors? Every derogatory monikor he comes up with for us, we adopt it as part of our vocabulary. The older I get the less I understand American Africans. I guess only white people live in neighborhods. All other people especially of color live in the ghetto or hood. They don't even know that all ghetto is is a ne ighborhood.
