He was Jimmy from Degrassi. Let me explain:
Okay, lets start from the beginning . So there is this school in Canada called Degrassi High. And there is this group of students that hang out with each other, date each other and ruin each others lives (but continue to associate with each other). Above all, Degrassi seems to be the one place in the world, where the worst possible things happen to these group of students on a daily basis. It's pretty similar to the 5th circle of hell, in my opinion. But instead of changing schools or moving to a new town the characters fight their way through mental disorders, pregnancies, suicides, school shootings, pedophilia, STDS and all other sorts of horrible stuff/situations. Picture your worst week ever, and multiply it by a zillion...and you pretty much sum up the series.
Jimmy (Drake) was the only black kid on the show (ok, not the only...but the only significant one). He was kind hearted and good natured...and proved on a daily basis that there was no good places north of America for a black male to get a line up.
This was his crew.
Somewhere in the 4th season I think (I've watched alot of this show), he got caught up in a school shooting.
And then he was cripple.
Now, he is in America and selling rap albums to 16 year olds, under the influence of Lil Wayne and his gang. Do you see the disconnect? I mean...he is not the first to make it out of Canada and onto American soil. Darcy some how got out and ended up in a nice home in 90210. But I just had to get this off my chest. No matter how hard he reps on BET or how many underground mixtapes he has made in the past 5 years...I will always be confused as to how he got out of his wheel chair.
But on a positive note...he finally has a decent line up.
