Actually he couldn't be more.. WRONG! I've seen this among many of my peers/family-- illegal and legal. They move into bad neighborhoods and get into trouble/gangs. Simple as that. I think thats true for a lot of people who raise children in bad neighborhoods.

i disagree. Most of the folks i know who are always in trouble usually have substandard, uninvolved parents. You should see some of the neighborhoods these kids live in. I know one who grew up in Southern VA's nicest hood and still messed up his life. The culprit: Poor parenting.

And; I have to agree with Alanboy395 here.

Looking at Black children; the ones whose came here (legally) from Jamaica as a group tended to do much better in school, etc. than most American Blacks----------back in the 1920's in states like New York.

Same basic race/ethnicity: much different culture.

No surprise, Alanboy!

Common knowledge . . . parents who blatantly disrespect our laws (entering this country illegally plus) usually raise kids who do the exact same!

That is also true but guess why their parents aren't around? They're usually at work trying to put food on the table by working long hours.
