Remarks by President Barack Obama in the Eulogy for the Honorable Reverend Clementa Pinckney

Quoting from President Obama’s remarks:

“Perhaps it causes us to examine what we’re doing to cause some of our children to hate.” (Applause)

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/obama-reverend-clementa-pinckney.png

Well, Mr. President, what are the results of your examination, or are you all talk and no action when it comes to protecting children from the National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect that for decades has deprived untold numbers of American children of African descent from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood?

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

Mr. President, it seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy, safe Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong…because as the mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick’s family I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents for being immature irresponsible “living wild” adults who deprived me of a safe, happy childhood.

Though like many victims of child abuse, most likely I would deny my parents harmed me, seeking to blame others for the pain my parents caused to me.

Mr. President, I wonder how little Kendrick and his elementary school classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

Barack, when you took office I had hopes for you being The Man. I had hopes you would become the paternal father figure for millions of young American children whose immature moms selfishly deprived them of a father figure.

I had hopes you would be the first elected official in more than three decades to openly and clearly address the issue of child abuse and neglect that fuels and perpetuates much of the fear and racial animosity many American embrace.

Instead you slap the faces of responsible American moms and dads who struggle with keeping their kids safe from, and/or succumbing to The Street culture when you release drug dealers who sell poison drugs to depressed people who everyday cause emotional and physical trauma to their peaceful neighbors when they rob, steal, murder and maim their neighbors to purchase drugs from the dealers you let go.

Mr. President, in your desire to be the “cool guy” you ‘played to’ depressed Americans while totally disregarding the peaceful Americans of African descent who fear many of their depressed neighbors and the frustrated, angry abused/neglected children their depressed neighbors irresponsibly introduce to many struggling American communities.

Mr. President, you asked why some American children of African descent “Hate.”

I would like to learn your theory for why many “Hate” and what you are actively doing to end the “Hate?”

Decades ago many African American kids began writing rap lyrics characterizing our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as *itches and *hores.

Mr. Obama, why did my peaceful Motown musician friends from the 60s express nothing but love, respect and admiration for our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, yet for more than three decades many of their children and grandchildren compose music performances characterizing the maternal half of our population as less than human creatures, not deserving of respect?

Thank you.

This is a discussion about American citizens we elect to office, ignoring child abuse that emotionally and physically harms countless American children.

Do you believe our leaders are doing anything to end the abuse and neglect suffered by many of our nation’s children?

Two examples of horrific child abuse that not only hurts my heart but also scares the hell out of me.

Victims of Child Abuse:

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

[Video] American Patriot Colonel Allen West Addresses “Charlatans” In Our White House

American Patriot Allen West Fired-Up Over The “Charlatans” Exposing Our People To Real World Dangers – Allen B. West – AllenBWest.com

red-dot

Yesterday, not once but twice listening to Colonel West address a NY Metro area audience, I felt his pain and frustrations. It is absolutely mind boggling that this administration is laying down on so many issues crucial to our welfare and security.

Later in the day I read about Mr. and Mrs. Obama inviting an American rapper to address young people about education. Frankly, I am past being shocked by this couple. They just seem sadly clueless about morality and respect.

I share Colonel West’s frustrations, we should not be propping up a country populated with many ideological people who wish to harm us.

Though my frustrations are compounded when this couple invites a man who in many of his rap artist performances characterizes the maternal half of our population as *itches, or essentially less than human creatures not deserving of respect.

Bottom line. America’s systemic racism has been replaced with a new oppression depriving many American children of African descent of experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

For decades a National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect has been harming developing children, in many cases causing them to vent their angers and frustrations on their peaceful neighbors instead of the people responsible for introducing them to a life of struggle and hardships.

There can be only one reason many musically inclined children and grandchildren of my peaceful, loving, mega-talented Motown musician friends are characterizing our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as *itches and *hores…

…Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment!!!

With this in mind, how can I not admire and respect Mr. and Mrs. Obama when they rub elbows and take snapshots with a popular American rap artist who characterizes the maternal half of our population as *itches?

I especially like this Wale rap performance titled “Girls on Drugs.” Though after reading his lyrics I am confused why he did not title this rap, “*itches on Drugs?”

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/wale-lyrics-girls-on-drugs.jpg

I’ll tell ya, these lyrics remind me of the songs written and composed by my Motown music friends from the 60s.

Olubowale “Wale” Victor Akintimehin’s love and respect for women, our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, is genuinely heartwarming, bringing tears to my eyes.

During his time as President of the United States of America, what has Mr. Obama and his wife done to end the National Epidemic of Child Abuse & Neglect that for decades has emotionally harmed and deprived countless American children of African descent from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood?

Colonel West’s frustrations and passion are fueled by his personal experiences in dealing with an enemy of the American people.

My frustrations are born from witnessing child abuse and neglect on a daily basis during the twelve years I provided police services to the community Shawn Jay Z Carter raps about poisoning and causing peaceful people to fear for their safety on a 24/7 basis.

African American Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment

criminal-parenting
Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

red-dotOf course, my first reaction was wanting to immediately protect both of these children from the emotional and physical harm being inflicted on them by adults in their neighborhood.

My second reaction was extreme anger, wanting to fill a Smurf bat with lead and use it to inflict harm on the adults who did nothing to protect either of these children from severely emotionally damaged adults who encouraged this criminal assault.

Then I took a few deep breaths, realizing that reacting to violence with anger and violence is not going to protect either of these children from the emotional and physical damage inflicted on them by immature, irresponsible adults.

Cursing at and name-calling the adults is not going to protect abused, neglected and maltreated children from emotionally damaged adults appearing in this recorded criminal assault on a five-year-old child.

However, sharing this video with as many Americans as possible, letting America see first hand the dysfunction and PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles many children in African American communities have to deal with on a daily basis when raised and nurtured by mentally impaired/damaged African American men and women, might wake-up America to the DECADES-LONG EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE that causes peaceful people from all American communities, including police officers, to fear and be wary of American people of African descent.

Folks, we need to STOP IGNORING the childhood abuse inflicted on many African American children by their immediate caretakers, and protect them from the madness of many emotionally damaged and mentally impaired adults who themselves are victims of Child Abuse and Neglect.

America needs to re-examine our child abuse laws, strengthening them to include single moms who believe they have a right to introduce multiple children to a life of pain and struggle.

After viewing this horrific criminal assault on a child by a child, I expect there will be people who angrily reply to this discussion.

However, angry replies are not going to protect children. Ignorant, immature name-calling will only serve to further alienate emotionally damaged, dysfunctional adults who have little respect for human life or value human life in the same manner most Americans value human life.

I would like to read constructive comments and suggestions for protecting children from the cycle of CHILDHOOD ABUSE and NEGLECT that has deprived countless American children of African descent from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

red-dot“This incident is an example of the growing anger and opposition towards the widespread issue of violence and sexual abuse aimed at women in the region.”

Obviously these are poor people living in poverty. I wonder if the growing anger and violence toward women has anything to do with animosity for introducing children to a life of pain, poverty and hardships?

In America we have many victims of poverty writing popular music performances characterizing the maternal half of our population as *itches and *hores.

Today, unhappy or depressed Americans have a peaceful way of expressing and venting their pain and dissatisfaction with their maternal caregivers by characterizing their maternal caregivers in their music performances as *itches and *hores.

Perhaps the poor people of West Bengal, India, should begin writing Rap performances to vent their anger toward their maternal caregivers?

If I was an American of African descent interested in improving my family’s quality of life and making sure they experience a safe, fairly happy, prosperous life, I would vote for the candidate who loudly, forcibly and compassionately speaks about decisively taking action to end America’s National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect that for decades has deprived untold American children from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

It’s going to take guts to look in the eyes of a small population of depressed, poor Americans, telling them they need to become better moms for their children.

America’s National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect is real, it is in our faces, it has filled our prisons with depressed people, many who wish they were never born.

Tupac was in his early 20s when he wrote, “That’s Just The Way It Is” (aka Changes):

how-i-learned-unapologetic-black-anger-can-change-world-better

By Chauncey DeVega / AlterNet / July 7, 2015

“When President Obama delivered the eulogy for the Reverend Clementa Pinckney and the other victims of the Charleston massacre he spoke of pain, forgiveness, justice, the political power of the black church, and racial healing.”

red-dotPresident Barack Obama questions why some American children hate? Perhaps the most important question I’ve heard any elected, religious or community leader ask in the past three decades.

In his remarks about the Honorable Reverend Clementa Pinckney, Mr Obama looked away from his audience while offering, “Perhaps it causes us to examine what we’re doing to cause some of our children to hate.” (Applause.)

With all due respect to my American neighbors who lost loved ones in this act of hate, this one sentence is the key to most all the emotional stress, anguish and pain experienced by many Americans of all ages.

Early in my police career when I was assigned to the Brooklyn community Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter raps/writes about attempting destroy by selling poison to people living and working in his community, and rapping about engaging in extremely harmful anti-social behaviors designed to protect his drug operation from rival gangs in adjoining neighborhoods, a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience “culture shock.”

When I asked what is meant by “culture shock,” I was told, “You’ll find out.”

I did find out what “culture shock” is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by a “American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the “American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

I personally witnessed the emotional trauma and physical pain a young, neglected, unsupervised, Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter is responsible for causing, and its aftermath, leaving a community populated by mostly peaceful people fearing for their safety on a 24/7 basis, which are the hours Shawn’s crew/gang were selling community harming substances.

During the twelve years I served this community I met hundreds of peaceful people who were just as shaken, upset and deeply disturbed as I was by the daily displays of violence and other anti-social activities mostly caused by teens and adults who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect.

I was lucky, at the end of my workday I could leave the community, returning to a more peaceful residential community were concerns for me and my family’s safety were significantly lower.

However, virtually all of my civilian co-workers, mostly loving, competent moms living in this community were not as fortunate. They were burdened with stresses and challenges my parents did not face to any significant degree.

The added stresses and challenges my peaceful co-workers faced was preventing their children from being negatively influenced by abused, neglected, unsupervised children being raised and nurtured by immature, “living wild” teen moms and young women who irresponsibly begin building families before they acquired the skills, maturity, PATIENCE and means to independently provide for their family of developing children.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

It seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends and elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong…because as they mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick’s family I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents. particularly my mom who had the final say on whether or not I was born, for being immature, irresponsible “living wild” adults who deprived me, my sisters and brothers of experiencing a safe, fairly happy Average Joe or Josie American childhood.

I have a feeling most Americans would have been just as shaken and disturbed as I was when witnessing on a daily basis children and teens being abused, neglected and unsupervised, which often resulted with them venting their anger and frustrations on their peaceful neighbors.

Victims of Child Abuse:

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

red-dotDr. Umar Johnson “What Black People Must Do in 2015” – YouTube.

Dr. Johnson is correct, Europeans oppressed African people, abducting and enslaving African people, treating them as less than human, perhaps as dogs, which is how many of today’s young men characterize women, aka our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts in their music performances…unlike my peaceful Motown friends who years ago nurtured this young developing American to believe they are talented, peaceful people, more than worthy of respect and admiration for making me smile and wanting to learn about the love between a man and woman they constantly sang about.

However, that was then, today young kids, I mean really young developing kids, have a new oppressor: their young single moms who irresponsibly build families before acquiring the skills, means and PATIENCE required to raise and nurture fairly happy Average Joe American kids who experience a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

It seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends and elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy, safe Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong…because as the mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick’s family I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents for being immature irresponsible “living wild” adults who deprived me of a safe, happy childhood.

Though like many victims of child abuse, most likely I would deny my parents harmed me, seeking to blame others for the pain my parents caused to me.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

In a Oct 25, 2012, LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick talks about being a SIX-YEAR-OLD child who was not able to trust and rely on his mom…essentially he speaks about being emotionally abandon by his own mom.

Kendrick shares his experiences about feeling lonely, which if you read up on Cognitive Dissonance that Dr. Joy Degruy writes about in her book, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS)“, is it perfectly understandable why Kendrick feels lonely.

Search Google “Post traumatic Disorder Dr Joy de Gruy Leary – YouTube” to watch a very disturbing yet enlightening 1:21:00 lecture about “Cognitive Dissonance” and how it harms developing kids like Kendrick. Dr. DeGruy does an excellent job describing how “CD” helped perpetuate the human ignorances we call racism and slavery.

Dr. DeGruy also describes how using our common sense, we should be able to understand how “CD” can negatively impact developing children like Kendrick Lamar (born 1987), as well as Tupac Shakur (born 1971) and Shawn ‘Jay Z Carter’ (born 1969), to name a few more victims of horrific child abuse.

Early in my police career when I was assigned to the Brooklyn community Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter raps/writes about attempting destroy by selling poison to people living and working in his community, and rapping about engaging in extremely harmful anti-social behaviors designed to protect his drug operation from rival gangs in adjoining neighborhoods, a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience “culture shock.”

I did find out what “culture shock” is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by a “American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the “American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

I personally witnessed the emotional trauma and physical pain a young, neglected, unsupervised, Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter is responsible for causing, and its aftermath, leaving a community populated by mostly peaceful people fearing for their safety on a 24/7 basis, which are the hours Shawn’s crew/gang were selling community harming substances.

During the twelve years I served this community I met hundreds of peaceful people who were just as shaken, upset and deeply disturbed as I was by the daily displays of violence and other anti-social activities mostly caused by teens and adults who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect.

I was lucky, at the end of my workday I could leave the community, returning to a more peaceful residential community were concerns for me and my family’s safety were significantly lower.

However, virtually all of my civilian co-workers, mostly loving, competent moms living in this community were not as fortunate. They were burdened with stresses and challenges my parents did not face to any significant degree.

The added stresses and challenges my peaceful co-workers faced was preventing their children from being negatively influenced by abused/neglected/unsupervised children being raised and nurtured by immature, “living wild” teen moms and young women who irresponsibly begin building families before they acquired the skills, maturity, PATIENCE and means to independently provide for their family of developing children.

Reading Kendrick’s background, if you have any compassion for kids, you have to feel horrible for a FIRST GRADE school child who can’t depend on his mom to be there for him, a mom who exposes him to things kids should not have to witness and deal with in their young minds.

Kendrick has taken a bold first step by revealing his mother (and father) made poor choices that deprived him, his brothers and sisters from experiencing a safe, fairly happy Average Joe or Josie American kid childhood…

YET NO ONE IS LISTENING TO KENDRICK….WHY?

Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, gives a compelling overview of the role that exposure to childhood trauma plays in the lives of troubled and chronically ill Americans.

After watching Dr. Ross’ presentation one of the questions all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, “What real substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent Child Abuse and Neglect that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?”


At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hitman and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Phillip – A Common Sense Approach Social Commentator?

red-dotI’d like to know Phil The Common Sense presenter’s justification for characterizing Americans of African descent as INHUMAN animals?

Is this link on his website $Why$?

Buy the Hoodrat shirt: http://xxx.xx/R7ib1

I appreciate Philip being upset with the young girl we all witnessed sharing violence with an innocent teen and five-year-old child.

However, I believe characterizing this child as a “Hoodrat” or animal is a totally irresponsible reaction in that the violent child is apparently a victim of child abuse committed by the people or person legally and morally responsible for raising and nurturing this abused child into a peaceful person.

I too am angry when I witness acts of violence being committed by young children, though based on my life experiences witnessing this type of ugliness on a regular basis, I choose to seek and identify who is primarily responsible for this emotionally abused child acting out with violence.

In some circles, adults with a common sense approach who characterize a child as an animal, might be viewed as a bit damaged themselves.

In other circles many might believe common sense people using inflammatory titles and headlines to draw public attention to their ad-packed Youtube channels that are linked to their for-profit website, well, many might infer the common sense folks are willfully perpetuating grief and sadness experienced by thousands of victims of child abuse and neglect who matured into damaged teens and adults.

Sadly many of the people highlighted in the videos on these for-profit YouTube channels, with links to for-profit websites, are victims of all types of early childhood abuse, neglect and maltreatment that understandably causes them to develop into depressed, angry frustrated teens and adults.

Much like Baltimore grandmother Toya Graham’s son Michael Graham-Singleton who was observed acting with depraved indifference toward peaceful people attempting to protect his peaceful neighbors from the anger and depression many kids experience as they mature, realizing their mom and/or dad introduced them to a life that caused them pain, hardship and struggle…a life depriving them of experiencing some/much of the fun the media tells them many American kids were enjoying.

The root causes of crime and violence are in part related to a child’s early up-bringing and care.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning rap performance, “I”, Kendrick Lamar reveals, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

After looking at the rap lyrics written by Kendrick, I recognize he and I have both tread in similar worlds or communities.

Kendrick doing so as a depressed adolescent, me as a often frustrated uniformed NYC police officer dealing with children suffering from depression. In my experience, depressed children who often resort to committing anti-social harmful acts against their peaceful neighbors.

In this 2011 LAWeekly interview Kendrick clearly explains what caused his early depression and why he continued to experience depression into adulthood.

Quoting a January 2011 LAWeekly interview with Kendrick:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 siblings, and they all got six kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

Because we have tread the same sidewalks and experienced what life is like for some kids in the community he raps about, I am going to surmise Kendrick is sharing experiences that caused his depression, as well as the ever-present sadness many of his siblings, friends, neighbors and schoolmates born and raised under similar circumstances experience in their developing lives.

If you read the interview think about a young kid being taught in school to be truthful, honest, not to cheat ect… Then picture the kid going home to the life Kendrick describes.

Fact is, in the January 2011 interview Kendrick clearly described the driving force behind poverty and the child abuse many kids suffer, causing them to develop into depressed, emotionally damaged teens and adults.

I’ve met and/or observed hundreds of children who much like Kendrick were victims of early childhood abuse/neglect. I understand how the abuse impacted him, depriving him and most all his schoolmates of a normal mainstream American life the media showed him most American kids were enjoying.

Perhaps this case of child maltreatment and emotional abuse/neglect, will in part, offer a reason for why some/many kids growing up in America experience depression, lack empathy for their neighbors, often resorting to committing violent and other crimes to vent their anger and frustrations.

I met this Brooklyn, NY mom while providing uniform police services to the City of New York some years ago.

One evening a call for police service brought me to a young mom’s second floor walk-up apartment in a private dwelling, she was reporting the theft of a Boom-Box radio taken from her kitchen window sill by someone trespassing on her building’s fire escape.

Entering this young mom’s apartment I observed several children, some in diapers, a few older, sitting on a living room couch, an aluminum fifty-five gallon, half-filled trash can was sitting right in the middle of her tiny living room, as if it was her coffee table. One of her living room walls was smeared with several dark stains of what I believed to be human waste.

I calmly recorded her theft complaint and left, immediately reporting my observations to my sergeant who instructed me to contact child welfare. Forty-five minutes later the children were removed from this mom’s care, temporarily placed in the custody and care of the people of New York City.

Sadly, this was not my only interaction with this mom.

Months later I arrested her younger brother for robbery. According to the victims and one witness to this act of violence who recognized her brother from the neighborhood, he placed what appeared to be a handgun in the face of two victims and threatened their lives while demanding and taking their property.

Until she arrived at the precinct to protest her brother’s arrest, I had no idea my young prisoner was related to the mom whose maltreated children I caused to be taken from her months earlier. At the top of her lungs, much like Michael Brown’s father when he was recorded reacting to the perceived injustice to his family member, she adamantly insisted her brother was not a robber.

I showed her the gun I recovered from her brother’s pocket, I told her one witness knows her brother from the neighborhood, still not convinced she came very close to being arrested for becoming disorderly and refusing to leave the precinct station house once her business was done. Later I learned that she appeared in court when her younger brother was arrested months earlier for an unrelated robbery.

What was the point of lying about her brother not being a street thug, when there are public records indicating she knew he was committing acts of violence toward people months before she looked me in the eye and vehemently denied her brother is a robber?

I believe I know the answer to my own question. Again, I have no formal training in understanding why people tend to act the way they do, however based on my life experiences I believe Boom-Box mom lied to me without a care or second thought because she was raised to believe lying and denial is how people cope with uncomfortable situations..or..she never acquired and developed the critical thinking skills required to look past living in the moment, or the “here and now’.

Time and time again I interviewed adults and teens who lied to me about easily verifiable facts, often placing themselves at risk for being arrested for obstructing or impeding criminal investigations. Is this something most people with average critical thinking skills would do?

After every day or night’s work I had a 30-40 minute commute home, which gave me time to reflect on the day’s events, how I responded to them, and what I learned from them. Many nights I would drive home with a smile on my face, thinking to myself, “Holy smokes, I can’t believe I get paid to have this much fun identifying and locking up dangerous people.”

During many of these winding-down, reflective moments I would actually experience a euphoric feeling of being “high on life.” For me, at that time in my career, chasing down seriously dangerous bad people who illegally armed themselves with firearms for the purpose of committing mayhem on a mostly peaceful population of working class and poor fellow Americans was the ultimate high, as well as a fringe benefit of police work.

In many cases after taking an alleged dangerous person into custody, I had the opportunity to speak with them and gain ‘some’ insight into what makes them tick. I have no formal training in psychology, however, after meeting and talking with many people who are alleged to have committed crimes in this community, I personally concluded many of the people I arrested were raised and nurtured in environments that lacked real love, understanding, caring and guidance.

Driving home after my first interaction with the aforementioned Boom-Box mom, I thought about her values, her understanding of what is expected of the people who nurture our children, her consideration for laws that society imposes on all people who assume the serious responsibility of rearing children.

I concluded Boom-Box mom was “clueless,” lacking good judgment and skills in all areas required for her to be a good nurturer.

I asked myself, “What is going on in the mind of a mother who invites a law enforcement official into her home, in which she has created a environment for her children that posed a serious risk to their physical well being and health, as well as their psychological development?”

“Does she not realize what she is doing to her children or how her clueless behavior can imprint and affect them for life?”

“Before calling the police did Boom-Box mom not realize society enacted laws protecting her children from the physically harmful and emotionally abusive home she created for them?”

I have to believe Boom-Box mom’s method for parenting is a learned behavior, instilled either during her own upbringing or gleaned from the people she is friends or associates with. Which leaves me wondering if Boom-Box mom ever invited friends or guests to her apartment, and if she did, why didn’t they report the apparent maltreatment and emotional abuse she was exposing her helpless children to?

I am not trying to be harsh by characterizing Boom-Box mom as totally “clueless.” I believe she is a victim of a society accepted cycle of dysfunctional family and community environments…from birth, it appears Boom-Box mom was not shown what a loving environment is made of, it’s difficult for me to be mad at people who are victimized by the recurring cycle, and it certainly makes me better understand why so much rage, anger and frustration exists in the hearts and minds of young “black people” who are raised in these environments.

If I was being raised in the cycle of poverty by a “clueless” parent, as I mature, learning more about the world and witnessing how others are having fun, prospering, loving their families and lives, more than likely over time I’d be real upset, simmering, maybe even rage as I aged and my home environment does not improve.

I think about Boom-Box mom’s children and what they have to look forward to, what skills does she offer her children…what goes through her baby’s minds as they gather around the trash can mom placed in the middle of their living room, day after day watching television depicting the good lives Americans of all backgrounds are enjoying?

What really saddens me……is knowing, based on my experiences, that Boom-Box mom’s “clueless” mindset is replicated by mom’s and parents throughout this community. It saddens and angers me that little kids are in many cases, doomed from the start, or before they are conceived.

When I look back at the environment my parents created for me and how I responded to that environment, I realize my goals were to please my parents by respecting and appreciating what they were doing for me. And most importantly doing my best not to disappoint them because they loved me and made sure I knew it by actively being involved in my life, and aiding me in shaping my life as I developed into a peaceful person who felt loved and cared for.

Two immutable rules in our household were impressed upon me at a young age, “Always be truthful” and “Before judging, wear the other person’s shoes.” Thinking back mom and dad never used the word “empathy” when admonishing me for not thinking before I shot my mouth off, they always said “wear the other person’s shoes.”

I am thinking if my mom and dad placed a trash can in our living room, ignored feces smeared on our walls, got sis and I removed from their custody because they were not providing basic care for me and sis…I am thinking I’d be a pretty messed up kid incapable of embracing the concept of empathy, or purposefully not showing empathy for others because my life sucks and I don’t care about others.

Or perhaps I’d use my intentional lack of empathy as a means to peeve or ‘get-back’ at my parents by engaging in anti-social behaviors that would eventually get me arrested, causing my parents to recognize that I exist, or depending on their views of the police, causing them to interact with authority people they may not necessarily like or trust, thus peeving them.

As I wrote, my experiences occurred years ago.

Recently I looked at current crime stats for this community and learned there has been a significant decrease in reported crimes, though there is still a good amount of violent crimes being committed.

If society continues failing to monitor caregivers who require public funds to raise, nurture and support their children, these kids will continue to be raised in environments like the one Boom-Box mom created for her kids.

I am hoping when camera technology proves its mettle in protecting police officers, as well as identifying officers who require further training or officers who have no business serving the public in a LE capacity, we will use that same technology to protect children by monitoring the common area of homes in which caregivers have established a track record for failing to properly raise, nurture and/or supervise their children. Especially in communities with higher crime rates where kids are more often exposed to some/many neighbors with a mindset for lawlessness.

Recently I watched a video that saddened me as well as enlightened me when I learned child welfare investigators test the hair of child abuse victims for “ambient” exposure to drugs.

Holy smokes, the numbers were critical. At the least cameras would expose signs of intoxication in homes identified as requiring extra care to prevent children from being emotionally and or physically harmed.

My Logic:

If a person requires public funds to raise and nurture a child, society is essentially investing in America’s future by offering support to irresponsible women who in many cases give life to children they are not prepared to care for without, and in some/many instances, with our support.

By bearing a child/children without having the means to provide for her child, a mom has already demonstrated that she is not a mature, responsible person.

Society compassionately, and because we do not have any other choice, provides support and care for a child born to a immature, irresponsible mother, and due to financial constraints we do little to insure our investment in immature mother’s children is being used to raised and nurture her kids in a physically and emotionally healthy environment.

Cameras would allow society to closely monitor our investment without being overly intrusive or having to hire more child welfare investigators to protect children from immature, irresponsible caregivers, which we should be doing now.

Society created laws to protect peaceful people from anti-social people.

To protect society from children who develop anti-social attitudes, we arrest teens for committing crimes, yet we do not hold accountable the mothers and fathers legally responsible for nurturing and supervising these kids?

Why is that?

Does society’s current and long-standing policy for ignoring children born to immature females and anonymous or immature males need to be re-evaluated?

Seems reasonable society should have a right to closely monitor our investments and insure that kids are being raised and nurtured with love >>> and not indifference.

Milwaukee Sheriff Clarke offers sound advice to all Americans, “Fix the ghetto!”

I’m with Sheriff Clarke. I believe we also need to re-examine society’s child protection and welfare laws.

If we do not take affirmative action to protect children, “the ghetto” will continue to thrive, fueled by poor parenting, resulting with depressed kids maturing into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults who often vent their pent up frustrations on their peaceful neighbors, instead of the person(s) responsible for introducing them to a life of hardship, pain and struggle.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

Truth: Keeping It Real On Hustling And Selling Drugs!.

red-dotA Concerned American Speaks His ‘Peace’

I appreciate the brother showing concern for his neighbors who purchase the poison products that slowly saps life from people, and threaten the overall health of entire communities populated mostly by peaceful thinking people like the wise man in this video.

I am sure Tupac would have appreciated if neighborhood drug dealers did not sell his mom the poison that sapped her life and deprived his family of living an Average Joe American life, as well as causing Tupac to wake in the morning wondering if he should blast himself, as he describes in his ‘That’s Just The Way It Is’ rap.

In 2011 Kendrick Lamar told LAWeekly, “I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too.”

I have to believe Kendrick was not happy witnessing adults responsible for his well being doing ‘stuff’ his elementary school teachers were telling him was harmful to his sisters, brothers, cousins, parents and neighbors.

Dealing with all that mind twisting turmoil, being taught conflicting values, can’t be easy for a little six-year-old boy who just wants to be an Average Joe American kid living a safe, fairly happy kid life, yet parents “living wild” parents are irresponsibly placing obstacles in his way, intentionally depriving him of being a happy little kid who feels safe and doesn’t have to worry about his family and friends being shot at and killed.

I like the message this wise man shared with our American brothers and viewers.

Perhaps his next message of peace and unity will be for his sisters, discussing Pride In Parenting that almost always results with little boys and girls feeling safe, loved and happy…maturing into teens and adults who want to please their parents by replicating the good choices their parents made that helped them grow and thrive.

Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations

Is Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation’s children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness – instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

Victims of Child Abuse

This video depicts horrific examples of men who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect, conditioning a young teen to embrace ‘The Street’ culture Baltimore Mom of The Year failed to protect her teen son from…not to mention representing the fear peaceful people living and WORKING in the community experience knowing depressed, angry, unpredictable teens and young adults need to vent their angers and frustrations for being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsible, “living wild” single moms and/or dads.

A little girl, catching a cool breeze from an air conditioning unit in the yard, was blindsided by another child about her same age, who had evidently had some practice with fighting fierce. The small victim wasn’t alone, as there were plenty of nearby witnesses, who could have protected her but didn’t because they were too busy recording the brutal beat down and encouraging it. | Written By Amanda Shea

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

Is Journalist Charles M. Blow Mired In Statistics, Ignorant To The Realities of Child Abuse/Neglect & Poverty?

Child Abuse/Neglect Leads To Poverty, Resentment And Crime

For the past several months I have been following Mr. Charles Blow’s writings, viewing them through the eyes of a middle-class NYC suburbs “Average Joe” child who was a toddler when Motown music was in its infancy.

Years later, as a uniformed Brooklyn cop and robbery/homicide investigator, my eyes also witnessed the emotional pain and physical damage caused to peaceful people by the anti-social activities Brooklyn resident and American rapper Shawn “Jay Z” Carter raps/writes about causing to countless Brooklyn residents and “Average Joes” working in communities Shawn Carter raps/writes about actively and callously attempting to destroy.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning rap performance, “I”, American Rap Performance Artist Kendrick Lamar reveals, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

In a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview American rapper and 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and victim denial that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”*

*”I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles laying with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

In a October 25, 2012 Kendrick again reveals who failed a young developing Kendrick Lamar and his siblings, causing him to experience emotional trauma that understandably lead to the depression he raps about in his Gammy Award winner performance of “I”.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

I am curious if Charles Blow would be interested in learning about the emotional trauma experienced by AVERAGE JOE elementary school children like Kendrick Lamar?

Perhaps Mr. Blow would like to speak with Kendrick’s immediate and extended families, as well as his depressed neighbors, asking them if they believe their chosen lifestyle deprived Kendrick, his siblings, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates, from experiencing a safe, some what happy AVERAGE JOE childhood?

After reading Kendrick Lamar’s comments, would Charles ask Kendrick, his siblings and friends if they feel resentment for being deprived from experiencing the safe, some-what happy life they are aware most American AVERAGE JOE kids are enjoying?

Seems to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends and elementary school classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe AVERAGE JOE childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

Perhaps these obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, confused not knowing right from wrong, OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong.

I’ve met depressed, frustrated kids like Kendrick. I’ve arrested them, witnessed their pain and sadness, learned the roots of their pain and sadness when I met their caretakers, mostly single moms.

I’ve watched young AVERAGE JOE teens tearfully express their anger at their moms, for introducing them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his AVERAGE JOE classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

In her book, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS)”, author and researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy’s does an excellent job relating how “Cognitive Dissonance” affected Americans who embrace racism and were/are victims of racism that deeply tainted and impeded our evolving species.

Does Charles Blow believe “Cognitive Dissonance” is partly responsible for the frustration and anger many teens and adults embrace?

Does Charles Blow have the capacity to recognize the statistics he relies on to form his opinions do not reflect the REAL LIFE struggles and challenges developing minds encounter when those young minds are raised and nurtured by moms and dads like Mr. and Mrs. Lamar (Duckworth)?

Does Mr. Blow’s intellect include ferreting out and exposing the reasons for why my much admired Motown musicians and most all talented composers/musicians from the 60s wrote lyrics loving, praising and adoring females…and beginning in the 80s the children and grandchildren of my Motown friends began creating/writing rap performance lyrics that essentially characterizes females, aka moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters…as witches and bhores, or less than human people undeserving of respect?

Would the American public, his readers, fans and followers be better served if author, media commentator, journalist Mr. Charles M. Blow logged off the electronic devices he uses to locate the statistics he cites, and invited AVERAGE JOE Kendrick Lamar for a sit-down discussing the child abuse, neglect and maltreatment Kendrick raps about in his “Average Joe,” performance as well as the fifteen similar “Average Joe” raps Kendrick mentions in his LAWeekly interview?

When Kendrick was a “Average Joe” kid, his voice was stifled by his community, fear of being emotionally and/or physically harmed prevented him from talking about the emotional damage he experienced, and observed his parents and neighbors were inflicting on themselves, his siblings, his neighborhood friends, as well as many of his AVERAGE JOE elementary and JHS classmates.

Years later as an adult, Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about the child abuse he was victimized by that prevented him from experiencing the Average Joe Kid life I pretty much experienced…yet no one is listening to Kendrick!!!

Instead, people with larger voices than Kendrick’s, people who have the power to more aggressively expose the childhood abuse that caused Kendrick to experience depression for much of his life, seem more concerned about focusing on and perpetuating racial issues that have very little to do with Kendrick’s parents making poor and irresponsible lifestyle choices for Kendrick and their other children.

As it stands today, I am not sure if Charles M. Blow has the strength and fortitude to support Kendrick Lamar, to help Kendrick spare thousands other American children from experiencing Cognitive Dissonance that caused him to develop into a man emotionally scarred for life by his “living wild” parents, extended family and neighbors.

Charles, it may cause you some pain, though if you sincerely want to help our struggling American neighbors, you will support Kendrick’s voice using plain English the AVERAGE JOE can easily understand.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.
