Its real >easy to caste judgement, how >easy is it to be >judged and by who's standards? When using the n word? My own standards. And I set those standards based on what expect from myself. I'm not expecting anything from those "unaffordable niggas" that I speak of, that I wouldn't expect from myself. If I get into some ish that inables me from looking at myself, then I have just become one of those "unaffordable niggas". Is it that hard to incorporate pride and morals into your everyday living and expectations?

But my philosophy dictates love of the do-er and not the deed. Not to say that you dispute that. Suffice to say that we can all loathe child abuse and find love for the abuser; or that we hate drug addiction and still love the addict; or that the dealing drugs is "unaffordable" while praying salvation for a drug dealer's soul necessary.
