So Much Pain!!

We never want to forget the big reason why I started making videos.  With all of the BS that we are doing out here as adults, it is the kids who are mostly affected!  Most of the kids in the video that you will see below come from single parent homes.  Please watch & Share


The really sad part about this is that you still have people running around the internet f*cking with me and my family because they claim I am such a cancer to the black community yet they have nothing to say about situations like this.  They dont fight against nothing like this, they dont sayanything about the destruction going on in these innercities.

I keep saying that these single parent homes are causing the problems, the stats show it yet they will not touch it!  We need to see what is happening to these places and with these children!  Lets acknowledge that there is a problem here!

Snapshot 6 (4-21-2014 12-04 AM)

On Chicago’s West Side, there is a school for the city’s most at-risk youth — the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders.

Last Chance High takes viewers inside Montefiore’s classrooms and into the homes of students who are one mistake away from being locked up or committed to a mental hospital.

In the first episode of the eight-part original VICE News series we are introduced to two 14-year-old Montefiore students, Cortez and Crystal, who were sent to the school after violently attacking teachers. Cortez’s mother blames the boy’s father, who is serving a life sentence for murder. Crystal has stabbed her classmates and been caught shoplifting since arriving to Montefiore — which has left her mother on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Though the task can be overwhelming, the Montefiore staff never gives up trying to reach the city’s most difficult and volatile student population.
