In the hood, fights are nothing to take lightly. When in a confrontation, somebody can pull out a weapon, people will use objects around them and there is a certain sense of pride when it comes to the hood. People will defend themselves anyway they possibly can and will also take any advantage that comes with the surroundings whether it be in the form of curbs or stairs.
In the featured video, there are quite a bit of people that are around the two individuals fighting and that creates pressure in itself. You cannot back down while other people are watching or that makes you look weak. Of course in this video, the two men do not back down.
On the next page, there is quite a confrontation that turns dangerous quite quickly. The people around get concerned when the fight takes place near the stairs and it shows how objects and settings around can escalate the situation.
