Yeah, I want to blame a significant population of immature American moms irresponsibly introducing newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens to a childhood of pain, struggle, hardships, fear, anxiety, torment and uncertainty.
However, pointing fingers at emotionally damaged or immature human beings is not going to prevent them from continuing the generational cycle of Child Abuse & Neglect, aka Poverty, that deprives significant numbers of American children from experiencing a fairly or wonderfully happy American kid childhood with SAFE STREETS to travel and play on.
If people feel a need to blame and point fingers, I suggest they direct their digits at the untold numbers of children harmed (victimized) by immature moms who ignore their parental and societal responsibility to raise, nurture and socialize children maturing into reasonably well-adjusted, responsible teens and adults.
Point your fingers at the so-called RESPONSIBLE, concerned, caring, loving American politicians, civic and religious leaders willfully ignoring OUR Nation’s expanding Culture of African American Childhood Abuse & Neglect, aka Poverty, responsible for inspiring significant numbers of American recording artists of African descent to create American music artistry demeaning and hating-on the MATERNAL HALF of our population, characterizing their moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters aunts and nieces as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect.
Sadly, there are far too many clueless moms not realizing (or caring) how important it is to protect their YOUNG kids from witnessing traumatic events during a critical period of their human/childhood development.

“The Hate U Give Little Infants Fvcks Everyone”. ~Tupac on T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.
Heeding Tupac’s words, as well as the thoughts and concerns shared by Americans who much like Mr. Tommy Sotomayor feel compelled to video record and share their concerns and pain with our world, will NO DOUBT result with more happy children maturing into reasonably peaceful, responsible teens and adults caring about the well being of others.
It is time to end “America’s War on Poverty,” correctly renaming our Nation’s expanding social disorder and # ONE HEALTH CRISIS known as CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, to
“America’s War on Childhood Abuse, Neglect & Maltreatment”
