Life in America is bullshit. Don’t let anyone ever tell you different. There’s no "happily ever after’s." No "fairytale endings." None of that shit. Life is real that’s for damn sure. And when it hits you, it knocks the fuck out of you. In America the working man is the weak. The man who will work a 12 hour shift then go to his next job for 6 is the doubted one. Not the man whom will do anything to keep his wealth no, the one who is simply trying to earn a living. The government will lie to you. Anything to hide those not so noble deeds. They will spy on you. During these times you don’t even know who is doing it. Who or what is the NSA? Well only god knows that, and the president. They will tap your computer, social media, and phone. Shoot anything they can use against you. Whatever happened to freedom? Or even to privacy? There’s nothing like that anymore. This shit is real!
A man by the name of Tupac Shakur once said. "They got money for wars but can feed the poor." (Referencing the Government) This quote by far, is beyond powerful.“How could Reagan live in a White House, which has thousands of rooms,and there be homelessness? And he's talking about helping. I don't believe that there is anyone that is going hungry in America simply by reason of denial or lack of ability to feed them. It is by people not knowing where or how to get this help. Why can't he take people off the street and put them in his White House? Then he'll have people from the streets to help him with his ideas. Not helpless! Homeless! Not helpless They haven't been homeless forever.They've done things in society. The White House would be tainted because he doesn't want to get dirty.” I know you're rich, I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house, you only need one house. And if you only got 2 kids, can you just keep it to 2 rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms if you know there's people with no room. I mean theres to much money here, nobody should be hitting the lotto for 30 million dollars and we got people starving in the streets. That is not idealistic that is just real, thats just stupid. There is no way Michael Jackson or whoever Jackson should have a million thousand drouple billion dollars and there's people starving. Theres no way! There’s no way that these people should own jets and their own people don't have houses, apartments, shacks, drawers, pants.” Now stop and think about what you just read! If this is truly the ‘melting pot of the world,’ then why do the different cultures and races have so much trouble melting together?
Discrimination in this country is beyond evident. Growing up as a young white male in an impoverished school system has subjected me to it. From seeing it to being a target of it. Since I am white in America, I automatically have some type of surplus of money, at 16 I automatically get a car, and I automatically have college money when the time comes. Bullshit. I am on foodstamps and have been for years, so that means free lunch at school. Without these i wouldn't eat. Period. Here i am 17 and no licence, no car, not shit. And the only way i'm going to college is 21st century scholars or a scholarship. This nation was built on oppression.
