It is not just you. Kids nowadays are getting really stupid. It is the "gangsta" posing. They believe that a "real man" acts like a thug (guns, thefts, break-ins, and all).
- About 8,000 Black teenagers are shot to death every year.
- From ages 16 to 24, more A-A teens die from murder than from all other causes of death combined.
- If you are a Black teen, you have one chance in 50 of being killed before your 24th birthday.
And before anyone complains that I mention African-American kids, when the OP did not, understand that the "gangsta" culture is percolating throughout U.S. society at an accelerating rate. All teenagers are being infected with this "stupidity".
