Neighborhoods Rule!

I am feeling angry as ever about white entitlement. You think this city is just something you can buy? Fuck off, you stupid kids who come here and go to school so that you can get a job that upholds your supremacy. Your not artists, and your not real. You want to make movies about your friends smoking cigarettes? take a look around. You hate your Puerto Rican neighbors and you dont even eat real Chinese food. You support the local drug and alcohol economy but you never thought that you might have been moving into a real fucking neighborhood. You want truth, lets talk about eviction and tennant abuse in the lower east side. About asthma rates in the south bronx, about the fucking drug cartels in the heights, strategically placed garbage incinerators and power plants. Yeah this city isnt just somewhere you can drop your white dough and it becomes yours. This city is full of class divisions and racism open your fucking eyes, your propogating it everyday. I am talking about everyone here, myself and you.

I just moved to washington heights and i am struggling with feeling as though i am participating and giving back to my nieghborhood. So far ive made a connection with the skateboarding community, naturally. So ive hooked up some kids with boards and had some ill flat ground sessions and games of old school skate.
