Having come from what is commonly referred to as “The Ghetto”, or “The Hood”, I often wonder how we can help improve those communities we come from. Often times however I am hit with the reality that some people don’t want to be helped. Not only that, they also do not want to see you succeed or advance in life. I’m a good man, but how can I come back and give to a community that would take all I have earned and hurt me if given the opportunity? Have a listen to this brief video on the crab mentality.
