Culture is something that happens in God’s feces. I know this is true because I had to take a sample of my own shit into a lab for “culture testing”.
I find subtle humor in gansta culture. It is a 100% front to disguise the fact that each of these individuals feels weak, alone and scared. The solution of course is to gather with others of the same constitution and portray the facade that they are strong and threatening. Really, it is a big fucking joke.
Yo!!! I’m not dissin ma homies and I’m sure that five of these guys could kick my ass in a street fight but really, who are we kidding?
Temple Grandin points out in her book “Animals make us human” that the idea of a wolf pack is a misnomer. Wolves are family creatures. They had to form what humans call a “pack” to maintain order when removed from their birth families and placed together with other wolves. I suppose gansta life is the same but we humans have been given a neocortex and have the ability to choose beyond instinctual survival.
Yo Yo!!! I guess what I am ultimately saying here is that life doesn’t have to be about banding together for mere survival when we actually use the 3 lb lump of grey matter inside of our cranium.
What logic on Earth says that the solution to a problem is to become more of a problem?
