I am not a criminal, statistic, failure

James McCray,
Hemet, CA

I am not what society has labeled me. I am not a criminal because I am so called African American. I am not a statistic because I grew up in a single parent household, studies suggest that young black boys who grow up without a father in the home chances are he will get in trouble with the law at a early age, drop out of school and be defiant towards his mother, by the way I did not do any of these . I am not a failure I am not doing what my dad and step-mother expects from my life.
