Menace in society

The older generation talks about how we record everything and how we are always on social media but still has the right to comment under a video that's posted on social media and call us brain washed degenerates.  Just because I was born in this generation that doesn't mean I'm a degenerate ignorant minded teen I am very intelligent and highly authentic.  We are the generation that has been forced to witness black on black crime and police brutality. Fighting human being to human being and today's chaos Everyone wants to throw out the negatives when we're the generation that's going to college and trying to make something better of this world.  The older generation has laid this path down for us so if this generation is chaotic then you have no one to blame but yourselves.  You're so quick to judge us for smoking marijuana but wasn't the 80's crack rock central. You see what you don't understand is the problem isn't our generation it's the things we're exposed to. Don't blame my generation for just comprehending all you give us. Even if we interpret it the wrong way  We are the generation of success and knowledge. My generation didn't invent drugs and start gangs that was all there before we came to be. Fingers are pointed at my generation for things we were just introduced to. It's like you giving me a gun and teaching me how to use it but when someone provokes me to use it on them you're like "oh my god how could you do that" you're the one who gave me the gun. You're the one who taught me to pull the trigger.  This is my generation and I am proud to be apart of it. Your comments were you giving me the gun.  My gun is my mouth and the trigger is my tongue. The words I speak will make anyone think twice before judging who I am. I am apart of this generation. I make everything today the way it is. Not only me but anyone in my class of human beings but fair warning my words can be violent.
