Usher Raymond IV and Harry Belafonte with Soledad O’Brien: “Breaking the Chains” of Social Injustice
My dad was a big HB fan. I spent a lot of hours listening to and enjoying his music.
Mr. B’s comments make me wonder if Baltimore Mom of The Year had responsibly built a smaller family she could more easily supervise and provide for, would her son have become depressed and attempted to cause grave harm to police charged with protecting their peaceful neighbors…though more importantly, would there be more funds to assist their community@large if eighteen-year-old Ms. Graham choose to build a smaller family while at the same time depending on her neighbors to support and feed her family.
Same for Tavis Smiley’s mom who at eighteen-years-old began irresponsibly building a family of ten children. In a May 2015 interview on FN Tavis revealed his nine now adult brothers and sisters continue struggling with poverty to this day.
Does Mr. Belafonte believe there would be more funds available for the good of entire communities if immature, selfish teen girls and young women “cut back” on building families until they acquire the skills, PATIENCE and means to raise and nurture a fairly happy child who experiences and enjoys Safe Streets to travel and play on?
