Tupac Shakur, born in 1971, was a early victim of America’s expanding and shameful National Epidemic of Child Abuse & Neglect, aka “Poverty”, that for decades has deprived countless children from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood, created rap performances writing about “Thug Life.”
A few months before she left us, Sandra Bland recorded a video declaring “War on the Gang-bangers and Thugs” who she believes have negatively impacted her quality of life as well as harming peaceful people in her community and many American communities.
Essentially Sandra was speaking about our National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect that deprives untold American kids of experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.
Childhood Abuse and Neglect that often leads depressed children to develop into angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults who often cause emotional harm and physical trauma to peaceful people when venting their anger and frustrations for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by immature single moms who irresponsibly begin building families before acquiring the skills, PATIENCE and means to raise and nurture a child who matures into a peaceful, fairly happy teenager and adult.

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”
