Stranger Danger

I personally experienced, was in 1976. 

Growing up in South Central, Los Angeles, I know deadly violence is a normal part of American life, like rape and poverty. 

 And why wouldn't I? 

By 1992, Ice Cube had recorded Death Certificate's "Summer Vacation", with it's chilling reminder for future generations that "If it could happen here, it could happen anywhere" - a message I'd found comforting long before those, sheltered from the realities of American life, were ready.  

 I always wonder what country they grew up in?
