I thought it would be interesting to watch some videos of your city's inner city neighborhoods to show people what it's really like. I actually find these videos interesting and they teach me quite a bit about life in poverty, giving me a close look at what goes on in many cities after dark.

Here's an interesting video of Brownsville, Brooklyn. Pretty interesting and the fact that it's not one of those typical Youtube trash talking videos makes it appeal to me even more.

Sorry but the only picture you'll get how it's really like to be in the hood is when you either live there or hang out there alot. Not from a video....

Speaking on behalf of the dogs, I'm glad the dude got shot.

Speaking as a NY taxpayer, I'm upset that he received free medical care.

The KKK loves people like the ones in the video. It's gasping enough to see them do these things but to brag about it on camera like you just got an A in Biochem, is quite unbelievable.

Also contrary to popular "hood" belief, fighting dogs doesn't make you tough. If you're such a tough guy, why not knuckle it out YOURSELF?

Instead of condeming this lifestyle, most people just shut up for fear of being called "sell out" and "unreal".

That was a very disturbing video!!!!

Agree 100%. I don't know what's more disturbing, the idea that someone would show this nonsense off by making and posting a video, or the idea that some people may see this and think "THAT's keepin it real! I'ma do that sh--!"
