“Louis Farrakhan is calling on African Americans to boycott the Christmas season, saying it’s been transformed into a crass commercial holiday that benefits “white business.”
With all due respect to Minister Farrakhan, “white business” pays their share of taxes that funds the families of many young, immature American teens and women of African descent who irresponsibly build families without acquiring practical skills, PATIENCE and the means to independently provide for their developing newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens.
Minister Farrakhan, the racism and oppression that negatively impacted your young developing life has largely been replaced with a new form of human oppression and cruel indignities that for two generations has deprived countless children from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American Kid childhood?
Minister Farrakhan, since the struggles of the 60s both of us have witnessed America’s growing National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect. Please do not pretend it does not exist or is not the primary reason for many of our neighbor’s woes.
In the 60-70s we listened to awesome original sounds written and performed by American music artists of African descent who adored, admired, wooed, lamented, loved and respected the maternal half of our population.
Minister Farrakhan, what happened to the love for women? Today and for the past three decades many locally and nationally popular rappers have been characterizing our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as *itches and *hores.
Minister Farrakhan, please tell me why the hate? Is it white business owners like modern day slave master Jimmy Iovine who exploits for profit emotionally depressed, teens and young adults, many who were victims of early childhood abuse and neglect…are white record producers responsible for inspiring female demeaning lyrics?
If not Minister, then who is?
Minister Farrakhan, I’m also curious to know if you have considered and addressed the reason(s) why there is an increase in the number of young American kids of African descent who have been taking their own lives, as reported in the NYTimes this past May?
Minister, who is responsible for neglecting a child to the point where the child believes his or her life is not worth living?
Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect
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
And it’s not your business anyway”
