Do Pranks In The "Hood" Promote Violence Or Expose The Truth

Updated on May 28, 2015

Are Pranks Going To Far?

Most of us all enjoy a good laugh from time to time it's just something that makes us feel good inside. Whether it's a bad day that were having or we're just in the mood to smile, laughter is always good for the soul. It seems to be that pranks are the way to get this reaction out of people these days whether its in a good or bad way. They range from all different types whether it's a scare prank, funny pranks, or just a social experiment there's always something new and thought out. Then you have the pranks that just cross far way too many lines and don't know when enough is enough. There's pranks of sexual harassment, pranks that start fights and even messing with authority figures. All for views and likes. This seems to be the way of the world now. It's all about how many followers and subscribers you have and these pranksters and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that. That includes going into neighborhoods they have no business being in to get an obvious reaction we all know there going to receive even before attempting the prank itself. Going around asking people in these bad neighborhoods if they want to buy guns, or even asking them if they wanna fight. Mostly in African American areas where you'll find a group of youths who grow up into a dangerous area having to fend for themselves growing up with no fathers and small house holds that only fuels the anger towards the world. Is it because the black community simply can't take a joke and only knows how to strike back in a violent nature? Or is it because they grow up in violent area's and having to defend yourself is the way of life. Would any of the people doing these so called pranks have an understanding of any of that or are they just trying to make the black community look violent for no reason. It doesn't even end there, It's also the way they treat women or try portray women in a negative light. Even though some of these pranks even turn out to be fake with terrible acting from just average Joe's looking to get a million views and gain some subscribers. Asking women if they wanna have sex or even touching and groping these women as if that's something funny.

Like I said I like a good laugh as well as everyone else but when are these pranks going to far. If someone walks into your face and takes your cell phone from your hand and you get attacked for doing so, it's supposed to be okay because you're screaming that its a prank? That right there is blatant robbery and if someone runs in your house to take something from you doesn't that give you the right to defend yourself? It's just not okay if it's said to be a prank from a fellow youtuber before the actions are done and they get attacked for stealing something from a random guy minding there own business. Not once have I seen any of the victims to these pranks start the problem, it's always getting started from the "prankster". So what's the fuss about? Is it just a way to attack minorities and make them look like animals so you're subscriber numbers can rise. A good prank is always funny but maybe they should learn more from actual professionals and learn the difference between committing crimes and doing actual pranks.
