I found it very interesting how the drug dealers help supported others in their there area. I was surprised to hear that they bought things like ice cream and sneakers for the children also. It is so hard to not become a drug dealer when there are not a lot of male role models in these boys life. It makes me wonder how different the area would be if the school was also stronger and the teachers cared about the kids. It would be interesting to see what how and why the females would leave the school system. How many of them become a drug dealers and if they aren’t how do they support themselves.
