That is how it should go, but I feel as soon as some of those people get some money, they forget the sentiment. Most never go back to those horrible places and pretend after making the money of course that they never were from there. I do understand, but Americans tend to take pride in that more than people from those places i named and they've seen some REAL sh*t!

my parents were drug addicts and im proud to say that i grew up poor cuz it made me NOT want to live that way so i think i had more motivation to not repeat my parents mistakes. some ppl just keep living the same way just cuz thats what they're used to. i dont think im better than anyone else tho. but i will say that im a better parent than some ppl like my own parents cuz they put drugs before me and my sister.

After reading your desc<x>ription I would have to say, it's just a matter of pride and ego. To answer your actual question though, to grow up in that type of environment and actually survive shows a great deal or fortitude, endurance, and intelligence (If you leave the neighborhood, or as some would call it, get out da ghetto.)

Because it made them stronger? I don't know... you should ask them. I think they like the sense that they're from a bad place nobody would **** with them.
