How does it happen?

Have you ever seen a pimp? Probably not that you know of, but pimps come in all shapes and sizes. You could walk right by one and not know it. I’ve come across cases where pimps have been family members, men, women, couples, gangs, and even classmates. Pimps don’t walk around wearing a t-shirt that says, […]
