I understand dysfunctional parenting touches the lives of kids residing in EVERY single American community.
HOWEVER, I cannot ignore the FACT that for more than thirty years significant numbers of locally and nationally MEGA-popular American recording artists or music performers raised by African American teen girls and women have been demeaning and hating-on African American females.
Something is DEFINITELY AMISS when from coast to coast American music performers are creating American music artistry regularly characterizing their moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters, aunts and nieces as less than human ^itches and/or ^hores unworthy of respect.
I could understand a few American music performers hating-on females.
Though when large numbers of musically inclined Americans of African descent are hating on females…evidently THERE IS A PROBLEM!
Sadly, there is also a growing population of my responsible African American neighbors producing videos sharing their thoughts, concerns and pain about the population of African American females they believe are responsible for harming the image of responsible African Americans, as well as perpetuating a Culture of Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment.
What meaningful ACTION needs to be taken to address the concerns of these seemingly responsible, caring, concerned Americans who felt compelled to identify themselves to our world while intelligently and sometimes passionately sharing their opinions?
