Question Was he raised in the streets?

"I was raised in the streets and I am a street judge" Judge Mathis

Was your man raised in the streets? Did he leave home at an early age to chase paper?
Mine was.
He left home at 13 and never went back to his Mother's house.
Some would say he will never amount to anything being street raised but Judge Mathis is an example of how that is just not true.
The streets can mold a man into a very strong and viable citizen.
What about your man?

Haha...no...but if you ask him he'll tell you he was. He was just a suburban white kid who made some bad choices....

I guess the definitions of the "streets" can be different.
Michael in my opinion was raised by a mother who wasn't all there. She tried her best I guess .... But he went out and did his own thing. he never really had any good role models at all. Luckily for him, he taught himself very well.
He started getting into trouble when he was 15 and after that only briefly lived with his mother. He was always being locked up or in rehab or living with others. Home, he never knew that until he moved in with me. Now he has a home, not just a house to live in, but a home.

Streets. And I hope that Judge Mathis can change most people's opinions of our men who were raised in them/by them.

I wouldn't necessarily say he was raised in the streets, He had a home and all. The streets raised him. All of his brothers were into street stuff and he was the youngest, so he just fell into the fast life. He started his criminal stuff at the age of 9 and its just been that way now 21 years later.

Yep...raised IN the streets, BY the streets. No daddy, and moms had her own activities that weren't showing him any better. Raised into a gang from his youth. He has the smarts and influence to influence a lot of people. I hope he can cultivate that attribute into something more positive when he gets out. A lot of people look up to him and if he went on the straight and narrow...it is crazy how many others would quickly follow. It's like a game of follow the leader and although there will always be others to take their place, he can lead a lot of guys out of this life and out of the patterns of being from the streets.

yes, from the age of 14, he was on the streets of dc by himself. he's told me his grandmother was very mentally ill and abused him and his brother to the point they honestly couldn't take it anymore. the streets were actually safer. he rarely comments about details. it's a subject that is extremely painful for him and so i try and respect his feelings and not mention it very much. he's told me one day when he's free and we can be alone, he'll sit down and tell me everything. i cannot imagine a child of 14 having to fend for theirselves.

Not in the way I think most of you are speaking. He wasn't in a gang or homeless or whatever, but he was a wild child and running amok doing drugs, petty thieving, etc. In and out of youth camps from the age of 13.

But no - he was just a wild, Southern Cali, dope fiend white boy.

Tyrone started running the streets in his early teens. He had a good father and a stable home but his father wouldn't put up with the BS. He told Tyrone it was "follow the rules or get out". Tyrone, thinking he knew it all, got out. So he was raised by the streets, DCF, and juvie.

BABI I LOVE YOUUUUUUUU!!!
You be on it!


BC THIS IS THE INTERNET, I'M AFRAID TO REVEAL TOO MUCH BC @ THE END OF THE DAY THIS IS REAL LIFE FOR MY HUSBAND AND I

He went in the streets at 14 to hustle but At 17 he created a gang that was NEVER meant to grow so large. But today the monster he birthed has grown so large in their capacity that you honestly wouldn't believe it if I told you. I know you wouldn't believe it becuase as I live it, I have a hard time believing that it's really real!!! Every day it's something (good and bad) and I am like WTF It's so surreal.

PER THE NJ STAR LEDGER (JONATHAN SCHUPPE AND WILLIAM KLEINKNECHT)" XXXXX is a legend in Essex County's criminal underworld" and "Few suspects have frustrated authorities like XXXXX" "He continued to call shots for the XXXX XXXX, ordering jailhouse attacks on rivals, authorities said. He was transferred to a state prison in Arizona, where officials hope he will do less harm."

My husband is STREET TO HIS HEART as you can see.... the streets is all that he has ever known and what he has proven to be good at. Although he is being given ample opportunities to go legit and I'm scared that he isn't going to be able to turn his back on what he created, when he goes legal

I agree with yaya The streets raised him

He grew up in Watts which is on the south side of LA. His mom was in and out of the picture, he was the oldest had to support the family, the typical story you see on a BET movie He left home when he was young, moved to ATL left and came to NY where he met me. He held down a few jobs here and there but the streets was his life. He wanted them new jordans? he either robbed someone who had them on or robbed someone for the money to get them. He hates having a boss and listens to no authority. His social values are that of the street, Get or get got.

Mine was not raised in or by the streets. He didn't have a great life growing up, but it was better than mine. I wasn't raised in or by the streets either. I left home at a young age, I did my share of stupid Sh*t, but I left home to get a job and because I was tired of raising my sisters.

While I agree that the streets don't have to beat everyone down, there are other alternatives to going there anyway. I never wanted to be any part of that life, and I refused to even be around it. I have worked jobs since I was 14 years old, taking any and everything available to me, including selling plasma and picking crops, so I wouldn't have to rely on anyone to help me.

mine had a mom and dad but choose the street life at a young age

also along with Judge Mathis if you have time watch the food network channel:
Chef Jeff Henderson chronicles his amazing journey from a life of crime on the rough streets of South Central, LA to his days in prison, where he discovered his passion for cooking, which led him to eventually become the executive chef at Café Bellagio in Las Vegas, to his latest endeavor helping at-risk youth realize their potential in the kitchen.
he has a show where they take young adults off the street or who just need a push in the right directions teaxhes them how to cook in the end they all get a scholarship to a culinary(sp sorry) school

Mine ran the streets and began paying his Momma's rent and bills, plus feeding his 7 siblings at age 11.

Ants--Was Chef Jeff the one who was executive chef at the Bellagio recently? I think I read a book about him and his wife.

Yes he was. He has been out on his own since 11 years old his mother put him out at that age can you believe it? This is the age when his older cousin passed him a gun and told him to make that sale. I guess his cousin may have thought he was helping him out but making it possible for him to get money but I really blame his mom for alot.

Still to this day whenever I get a picture of him she go around boasting to everyone that that is her son and how much she misses him but it has been 8 years and she has never visited him or even wrote a letter to her son. I guess he is glad we had that chance meeting when we did because with out me and our daughter he tells me he would have nothing to live for. I love him and I will do what I can but after careful consideration we both decided that his parents will have little to no hand in raising my daughter.

I know I so went off topic but I guess I needed to vent.

AJ basically raised himself.

his mom was a drunk who tried to kill him as an infant. She would pop in and outta his life as a child. Still he loved her and had a love hate relationship with her. She died a few years ago. He hasn't been able to get over it because he was locked up when she passed away and never got the chance to make peace with her.

His dad, AJ, feels like only takes care of him because he HAS to.

So, J has always had to do what he had to do to survive.

My man left home early and was running the streets. His parents encouraged his activities and it is no surprise that he ended up where he did. He is a survivor and because of that experience he is a very street smart man. I can't imagine what he would be like had he not lived this way. He's got a free spirit and he's very creative...I can't see him as a doctor or a lawyer or just an ordinary guy.

Yep - although he always kept close contact with his mom droppin' by to leave money and groceries consistently. He was always with the"OG's". They took a liken to him because he was young and soooo smart and was willin' to learn. When I was 16, people used to say..."You wit' that rich N--- from the point huh?" I would blush like nobody's business, go figure...Back then you would get so much respect for being the "wife" of a baller, and it came with sooo many perks. At 16 driving drop tops and wearing diamond rings on every finger, carrying the latest designer bags was the bidness......I've grown sooo much! You wouldn't catch me dead lookin' like that now. Sorry ya'll I had a flash back and went on a tangent....
