Nick Dahlheim offered, “Don’t know this Avery cat, maybe he’s a troll, maybe he’s not—-all I can say is that I like Kendrick Lamar.”
Hi, Nick. I’m trying to like Kendrick though he is making it difficult by continuing to hate-on the police while IGNORING THE FACT that he was raised in a Violent Felon embracing family and community environment that far too often threatened the lives and emotional well being of peaceful Compton residents as well as police.
Nick, I recognize some cops cross the line, sometimes taking out their anger and frustrations on citizens they believe are responsible for contributing to the mayhem and harm caused to peaceful residents.
I recognize some cops do not have the skills and temperament required to regularly deal with witnessing grade school children and teens being subjected to Childhood Trauma while slowly being conditioned to embrace the Street Culture that deprived Kendrick and the children in his immediate and extended families from enjoying a safe, fairly happy “Average Joe” childhood.
I recognize that after twelve years of witnessing and dealing with human pain suffered by far too many innocent people emotionally and/or physically injured (or worse) by teens and adults raised by single moms who in my opinion were criminally negligent in raising their newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens…I recognized concerns for my own deteriorating emotionally well being, my attitude, as well as concerns for my physical safety told me it was time to pack up and leave the madness behind me while I still had some compassion and empathy left in my soul.
Sadly, kids like Kendrick, his three siblings, his numerous cousins, many neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates DO NOT have the option of packing up and leaving their mad world behind them when their mad world begins affecting their ability to remain sane, or being able to discern knowing right from wrong.
Nick, I’ve met young Tupac, the kid with the hungry belly snatching neighbor’s purses to feed his belly. I’ve met young Kendrick, the kid raised in a violent felon embracing family and community environment.
From a young age I was schooled and conditioned to embrace empathy for others, I was scolded or punished when my caregivers learned I did not use it.
Witnessing kids like Kendrick and Tupac being conditioned from a very young age to embrace, under duress, a lifestyle that causes them to experience stress, anxiety, fear, uncertainty…I understand why Tupac rapped about depression and suicide, same for Kendrick.
Nick, after watching the way a significant population of Brooklyn, NY moms raised their children I understand why many teens and adults rap about women being less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect.
This is where my empathy kicks in. I want to hate-on Kendrick for continuing to hate-on the police. (In my opinion, based on facts Kendrick revealed about his upbringing, he has NO RIGHT to beef with police. His family is responsible for causing him to experience emotional pain…his family is responsible for causing cops and peaceful community members to experience legit concerns for their emotional well being and physical safety.)
Frankly, if I was raised by a mom who showed little concern for my well being, offered me very little GENUINE love, caring and affection, and as I matured realizing my mom selfishly birthed me to gain a .gov handout, which resulted with me being a ‘welfare kid’ (unlike most Average Joe and Josie American kids) experiencing a childhood of pain and hardships…I can’t say my mind would not be just as messed up as Kendrick’s, Tupac’s, Freddie Gray’s or Michael Singleton’s minds.
Nick, after learning little six-year-old Kendrick Lamar was forced through no fault of his own to endure a horrifically stressful and traumatic childhood, I understand why he is an angry, frustrated, depressed man.
I cannot imagine what it is like to be a little kid neglected and emotionally abandon by an uncaring mom, as Kendrick relates in paragraph ten of this LAWeekly interview.
Nick, there is no moral or legal justification for police ignoring their sworn duty and abusing or unjustifiably harming citizens.
Just as there is no moral justification for parental caregivers introducing newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens to a young life of struggle and hardships while telling their kids it’s everyone else’s fault they are poor.
Am I peeved and disappointed with moms who selfishly introduce children to a horrible childhood filled with needless drama and emotional trauma…you bet!
However, taking into account America’s history of human ignorance/greed, atrocities and abuse suffered by innocent people abducted and enslaved in a foreign land, I understand why some of my African American neighbors are peeved, depressed and understandably took advantage (human nature) of flawed social programs that opened the door to Tupac (born 1971) and Shawn Jay Z Carter (born 1969) becoming victims of Child Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty.
Again, I employ the empathy I was schooled to embrace under duress of scolding or punishment if I failed to, instead focusing my anger and disappointment on American leaders like Hillary Rodham Clinton and America’s Premier Presidential and Parental First Couple.
I experienced anger and disappointment when I heard Mrs. Hillary Clinton refer to teens as “Super-Predators,” offering, “We can talk about how they became that way but first we have to heal them.”
Obviously Mrs. Clinton has no desire to address the parental shortcomings of a significant population of maternal caregivers responsible for this:

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”
