My boy Joe Castro just wrote nine hood indicators of the recession. and they're quite hilarious (and true), which reminded me of the topic at hand. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed a mass of brothers on scooters and skateboards in the hood? Every time I go to my parents house (which is a predominantly black neighborhood in the 'burbs), instead of seeing big trucks and chevys sittin' on them boys, I see blinged up MEN in white tees on skateboards. And in my parent's neighborhood, the dudes on SKATEBOARDS are the drug dealers. (I know 'cause they were on the block when I lived there).
My brain can't deal with these possibilities. We've got a black president and drug dealers are on skateboards, what's next? LOL!
