In the case of a clean cut Middle Class young adult who played by every rule society set out, earned a college degree, suffered no criminal record or black mark against them to speak of in the process, and even served their country overseas, there is a fair amount of leeway to complain. I was told that if I did certain things, I would achieve a certain result.
So far, no such result has been forthcoming. Tens of millions of other young adults are in the exact same boat I am.
It is a fairly new phenomena as well, which can be almost exclusively attributed to the state of the current US economy.
That's not exactly the same thing as giving up on school "because it's a waste of time," knocking a girl up before you even turn 18, and using petty crime as an alternative source of income, while blaming "whitey" for one's circumstances the whole time. It is even less so when it can be shown for an absolute fact that no other group has these kinds of endemic problems.
