If I may derail slightly.It's because hood rats can't cook. They will have giant ass tvs and shit but a stove is too expensive.
You can get a gaint ass tv at walmart for 200 bucks. a "house hold" with a few people could come up with that kinda money, and a stolen or 2nd hand vidya shit is rather cheap. Personal electronics are not really luxeries anymore.
most apartments come with a stove and a hot plate or toaster oven can work in a pinch.
But durable goods are a one time "cost" ether from a hustle or from stealing. or flipping burgers what have you.
The real issue is recuring cost for consumablies like drugs or beer or booze or what ever.
Personally I think take out or drive through still being open is fucking insane. close them as for the next 2-3 weeks.
