I am African American, I'm from Wilmington but moved away many years ago..I do come home to visit family but I do not like to stay there long. When I come home to visit, it is so depressing. I was raised in Creekwood and I always made a promise to myself I wouldn't become a product of my environment. And as for those that say it's how you're raised? No it's not...I was raised with no dad and had a mom strung out on drugs. I didn't turn out bad at all...I went to college, got my Degree, got a good job, and left Wilmington. We as blacks are killing one another, and it be over some stupid stuff. Wilmington have all these so called Gang wanna be's such as bloods and crips..that's what this fight was all about. Bloods against the Crips, which are all BLACK GANGS!! Don't go around blaming the caucasians, the police, or the media for what we are doing to ourselves!! It saddens me that we as African Americans can't get along with one another!! Will this violence ever end????
