As a kid growing up in Cleveland, Ohio USA!
It was a time when the economic playfield was flat. Especially in the inner city. The near west side was all the same. No one had a reason to leave it for the suburbs. All the neighborhood stores shops were in walking distance and all.
With me growing up in that area. IDK? What was going on? Economically that is. The people in the area were nice to my parents’ dad, sisters me. But! The kids to these parents? Not so nice. I found that out on my first day of school. And afterward.
At the time! I did not pay any attention to what was going on. Until I found out the kids did not like me because all the kids were either spoiled rotten! Or! Followers of whatever the other guys were doing. It made it hard for me to fit in. Even the teachers! Most of them, to the same.
When we moved back to the projects aka “public housing” even though the kids there were bad! They were rather nice. IDK! This was a part of growing up. See! How ill informed I was?
