Kristen Wickham shared, “As the wife of a police officer, I am offended by this entire video.”
Hi, Kristen. As a Brooklyn cop during the 80s-90s who witnessed the emotional and physical pain (or worse) Mrs. Carter’s husband joyously raps about inflicting on his struggling and peaceful neighbors, I too am offended by this nationally and internationally popular couple as well as their fans who ignore why these ‘music artists’ write or share art characterizing the MATERNAL HALF of our population as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect.
Shawn Carter raps about peddling poison drugs to his depressed neighbors regardless of his neighbor’s age, emotional or physical condition. Shawn raps about he and his crew/gang/posse using semi-automatic ‘Mack Millis’ to enforce and protect their 24/7 drug operation from rival gangs in adjoining neighborhoods…as well as to cause fear and intimidate peaceful Brooklyn residents.
I am offended that Mrs. Shawn Carter, aka Beyonce Knowles, ignores the fact her husband has never denounced his Gangsta ‘people and community’ harming lifestyle, and he continues profiting from producing art promoting the anti-social Street Culture I witnessed emotionally and physically (or worse) harm sooooo many peaceful people just wanting to feel safe in their own neighborhoods.
While I am offended that today and for more than thirty years a significant number of self-produced and signed American recording artists of African descent characterize our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters, aunts and nieces as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect, I am not surprised many teens and adults view females in a less than favorable manner.
I am not surprised because I spent twelve years of my life witnessing immature teen and adult moms ignoring their parental duties and obligations to their children, as well as SCOFFING AT their moral and societal responsibility to their neighbors and community to nurture fairly happy kids maturing into fairly happy, reasonably responsible teens and adults respecting themselves, their neighbors and the authority responsible for maintaining peace in our neighborhoods.
Shawn born in 1969, is an early victim of what has grown into America’s shameful National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect.
I am offended Beyonce Knowles and millions of supposedly caring American moms are IGNORING the primary reason why our prisons and many American communities are populated by far too many angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal (NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers) teens and adults peeved for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of pain and hardship by mostly single moms who birthed them out of selfishness instead of a committed relationship between two responsible, loving adults partners.
I’m sorry to pick on moms, though since ancient times they are the primary caregivers we look to keep us safe, cared for and loved right from our start.
I am not sorry for criticizing Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Carter, they and their crews are partly responsible for impeding our society from progressing and evolving into a more peaceful nation where all Americans enjoy equality and respect.
Growing up I respected and admired my Motown musician friends and the peaceful, women praising, lamenting or loving music they wrote and shared.
When I hear many of today’s popular music performers, I wonder how young kids view their character, values and sanity?
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, 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.
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”
