Assumed youth incompetence
Destructive youth image
A vast number of young people in poor urban neighbourhoods are trying desperately to put some sense in their lives. But they are caught in the crossfire between a small group of socio-paths in their midst and the larger society that has written them out of the future. From earliest age these youth are forced to adapt to mortal fear -- they live in dangerous neighbourhoods -- while being bombarded with the message that they are, anyway, expendable.
