I wonder how many of his fans are aware of Kendrick’s horrifically abusive early childhood upbringing that deprived him and his siblings from experiencing and enjoying the Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood he laments about in his raps and interviews?
I’m not hating on Kendrick. Fact is I admire him for partially stepping out of the Street Life and not following a path that often leads depressed, angry frustrated teens and adults to emotionally and/or physically harm their peaceful neighbors.
I read that Kendrick is viewed by many of his fans and admirers as ‘The Chosen One,’ a title of high regard I believe is reserved for an exceptionally honest and truthful common man and woman who selflessly helps others.
In my opinion Kendrick still has work to do before I can view him as an exceptionally truthful, honest man willing to selflessly aid his brothers, sisters and American neighbors across our country.
More than once Kendrick revealed to LAWeekly a few details about his childhood that left no doubt in my mind he was exposed to anti-social, neighborhood harming and people destroying behaviors that first grade children should not be witnessing.
After watching Dr. Robert Ross’s video presentation (included below in this writing) about how childhood trauma affects developing children, I am 100% certain the anti-social behaviors Kendrick explains he witnessed when he was six-years-old, seeded and helped fuel the depression he states he been dealing with since he was a kid, right up to today.
In elementary school class Kendrick is being taught peaceful values, respect for his neighbors and about the dangers of illegal drugs and how they harm people.
While according to paragraph eight (8) of a January 20 2011, LAWeekly interview, at home Kendrick is witnessing his uncles selling dope and using shotguns to protect and enforce their drug operation, while his “living wild” moms and pops look on.
No small wonder why Kendrick’s mind developed a bit cockeyed, is it?
While I admire Kendrick for making moves to earn the title of Chosen One, he still has to speak one very important truth before I recognize his crown.
A truth many victims of childhood abuse refuse to acknowledge.
To earn the Chosen One crown Kendrick needs to reveal the true source of his life long depression. As difficult as it may be, he should feel inspired to help others by openly admitting his parent’s lack of personal accountability and “living wild” lifestyle messed with his head causing turmoil that dogs him into adulthood. Resulting with him discussing in public his depression and suicidal thoughts.
Perhaps teaming up with his biggest presidential fan for a intimate on-air discussion about the importance of children having responsible. caring, loving parental role models in their lives?
In one interview Kendrick related he’s met kids at his shows who cut, self mutilate. I’ve met a few young people in my suburban NY community who self mutilate. Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment harms kids in ALL communities.
Though currently the greatest harm suffered by many American kids is being raised, nurtured and poorly supervised by immature “living wild” single and/or married moms residing in struggling American communities similar to Kendrick’s hometown.
If for the betterment and well being of others, Kendrick chooses to honestly address the individual and community harming madness created by “living wild” moms and/or dads who disregard their responsibility to raise children experiencing a fairly happy Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood, I’ll view Kendrick with the same respect I held for the American who uttered the following words back when I was in grade school learning I lived among people who believed ‘All Men Are Created Equal’ and have the inalienable right to peacefully pursue their vision for Life, Liberty and Happiness.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
At the time Dr. King shared his dream my educators were teaching me about American social concepts, freedom and pursuits of happiness, yet at home I was witnessing on my family’s 13″ B&W Motorola TV, Americans struggling with a human ignorance that for far too long deprived my newly-made Motown music friends and their predecessors from be treated as equal to other Americans, and worse viewed as inferior humans by some of my American neighbors.
Which confused me because their music wasn’t inferior, not at all. My Motown friend’s music made me boogie, wanting to experience the joys of life and the love between a man and woman they were constantly singing about.
More importantly their peaceful music convinced me my American neighbors of African descent are no different from me, and most certainly deserving of my respect for sharing their talent and good will with our world.
Today’s kids listen to popular music performers sharing words of anger, hate, disrespect, violence, while characterizing the maternal half of our populations as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect. Makes me wonder how kids today view the character and saneness of many popular music performers?
In my mind Kendrick has reached another fork in the path of his life. Does he risk alienating fans by revealing guarded thoughts that during his younger days kept him feeling isolated and lonely in a crowded room?
I am genuinely hopeful King Kendrick will choose the path of truthfulness, permitting him to claim the title of Chosen One by compassionately denouncing “living wild” embraced by single or married parents who build families out of personal selfishness, instead of a committed relationship between two responsible, caring, loving parents who place their child’s emotional well being, physical safety and happiness before their own.
Child Abuse – When time doesn’t heal all wounds | Dr. Robert K. Ross – Ted-com Video
Dr. Ross’s 13:00 (thirteen minute) presentation is a MUST WATCH & LISTEN for depressed, tormented people OF ALL AGES who were victims of crazy, less than stellar parenting, though listening to the doctor’s words and absorbing them is more crucial.
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?”

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
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.
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”
