THANK YOU very much for your article "Think it's funny?" (Aug. 21), in which you bring a major problem in our communities to the forefront.
Too many people don't understand how entrenched the "crime = cool" culture is in our communities in Philadelphia. To quote Will Smith: "Just because you can do it doesn't mean that you should do it. Did you take time to think about all the seeds you ruin?"
I think that we must stand up and speak out against stores and shops that are preying on our children. So I ask that the Daily News print the names, locations and phone numbers of all the stores that sell these T-shirts. I recommend a boycott of the stores that think they can take advantage of our children for their own selfish gain.
