    As far as poverty and gangs go.

    I went to a school in east london, i received the same education as numerous other youths. lots of them received free school meals, my dad paid for my school dinners, after school id go home do my homework eat dinner watch TV go sleep. Im sure anyone who went to my school could do this easily.

    Youths from my school make raps over the internet saying they had a hard life and have to sell weed and grind etc etc.

    How comes i never felt the need to sell weed and buy true religion jeans, what makes me so different to them?
    Exactly, you see what I mean - some people love to blame everyone but themselves

    Well put -these people violated the human rights of others
