Damn. I knew I got the story wrong.
But I think alot of times, it's a lack of a strong male role model in the household. And black males have it the worst. But it's also a poverty thing, too.
I grew up without my pops, for the most part. The last time I have seen him was when I was 10. And there were a lot of situations that could have had me ended up in the system on the lay away program.
But my mom was a fucking ninja, and for the most part, kept my nose clean, when I was younger.
When I left the house..... Different story.
