I grew up in the sixties regularly experiencing the privilege of witnessing virtually all American musicians of African descent showing off their skills, talent and generosity by creating and sharing stunningly beautiful original American art all Americans can and should be proud of.
In the eighties I became a Brooklyn, NY cop regularly witnessing local and soon-to-be nationally and internationally popular American urban storytellers self-producing and promoting American art characterizing American teen girls as less than human *itches and *hores or ‘hoes’ unworthy of basic human respect.
I’ve asked a considerable number of responsible, caring, loving Americans if they have a theory for why in the sixties virtually all of my musically talented American neighbors of African descent were creating American art praising, adoring, admiring, wooing, lamenting, loving and respecting the maternal half of America’s population…
…yet beginning in the eighties significant numbers of popular African American music performers and American Urban Storytellers like regular White House guest Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter BEGAN creating popular American art demeaning and hating American women and teens girls?
As of this writing not one single person, has attempted to answer this question.
If Mrs, Clinton offers me a cogent, straight forward reply, I’ll join her FB page. I may even vote for her.
