rip hawk he’s the one on the middle
I came across this site.. just browsing online…. the craziest thing is the light skinned boy in the middle… just got killed last year… this picture is 4 years old… but when he died he was still VERY young.. I never knew him.. I never met him.. but I did hear about him when he passed… his name was Hawk.. he had a strong reputation in his neighborhood… its crazy.. i just turned 30 and you look @ things different once u reach a certain point in your life.. Malcolm X.. Martin Luther King… those men got killed because of how they lived.. they lived their lives trying to uplift black people in an oppressive society.. This Young man died because of how he lived… Martin and Malcolm are long gone but their legacies are still here… a fight that we are still fighting to this day… This young man left a legacy too.. a legacy that perpetuates this type of lifestyle.. a legacy that no matter how many people lose their lives because of “the streets” there’s still impressionable youths trying to live up to that facade to be “the man”… We all die.. no one lives forever… so while we have a chance lets get it right… leave something.. something that can help the quality of life.. not destroy it.. RIP Hawk
