Seems Representative Cynthia McKinney joins the majority of educated, alleged caring and responsible Americans Willfully Ignoring America’s expanding and shameful National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty, that for decades has deprived untold numbers of emotionally abused and neglected young developing children like Tupac Shakur, Freddie Gray, Michael Singleton, Michael Brown, as well as Grammy winner and victim of life scarring Childhood Trauma Kendrick Lamar, his three siblings and numerous cousins from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.
In paragraph eight of a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:
“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”
“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment.”
“My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”
As far as I am concerned, Kendrick revealed the ‘dirty little secret’ that Senator Rand Paul and virtually all alleged caring, concerned Americans willfully pretend does not exist.
Kendrick speaks about experiencing Childhood Trauma, witnessing MASS CHILD ABUSE and MALTREATMENT, violent felon family and community members who intentionally and recklessly ignored the well being of their children, depriving these kids from having a home environment where they feel safe, loved and cared for.
In school little Kendrick and his Elementary School classmates are being taught to be good citizens and to respect their neighbors.
While at home, under duress of being harmed if they open their lil mouths, families and communities are teaching their children anti-social ‘people and community’ harming values that often results with kids experiencing during a critical period of their childhood development a mentally debilitating condition known as Cognitive Dissonance.
No small wonder why Kendrick raps and speaks about childhood and adult depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts.

(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)
At the 2015 BET Awards, twenty-eight-year-old Kendrick Lamar, a victim of early childhood trauma/abuse perpetrated by violent felon family members who exposed him, his siblings and numerous cousins to gun violence and other life threatening anti-social behaviors, performed these lyrics for a world wide audience, ““And we hate the po-po, wanna kill us dead in the street fo’ sho”.”
Obviously Kendrick’s mind has been bent out of shape.
He admits growing up being conditioned by violent, gun toting drug peddling family members and neighbors to accept the violent Street Culture prevalent in many communities experiencing massive Child Abuse and Neglect, while raging at the police for trying to protect his peaceful neighbors from the violence and life-harming anti-social behaviors his Violent Felon family and community members embrace.
No small wonder Kendrick is an emotional wreck.
Frankly, after twelve years of regularly 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 that concerns for my own deteriorating emotionally well being, my attitude, as well as concerns for my physical safety were telling 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.
If Representative Cynthia McKinney & other Americans are sincerely concerned with protecting Americans from homelessness, drug abuse and other anti-social behaviors they will honestly recognize & truthfully address the issue of Childhood Trauma responsible for many depressed kids maturing into depressed teens who look to gangs and drugs for comfort.
Representative Cynthia McKinney is a lawmaker, how about crafting laws designed to protect young children like Kendrick from CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT PARENTING?
Yes, some police officers need to do a better job of remaining professional, adhering to their training, keeping cool and not allowing the human suffering and oppression of children many witness on a daily basis to erode their humanity or basic human respect for others.
Just as some single and married moms need to do a much better job of parenting by raising, nurturing, socializing and supervising infants, toddlers and children who mature into fairly happy, responsible teens and adults respecting their peaceful neighbors and the authority figures responsible for maintaining peace in our neighborhoods.
I’d like to know who is TAKING ACTION to protect our Nation’s most vital, valuable and precious resources from experiencing Childhood Trauma at the hands of grossly irresponsible CRIMINAL & CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT PARENTING???
I’m sorry to pick on moms, though they are the caregivers we look to keep us safe, cared for and loved right from our start.
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”
