During a May 2015 conversation with Bill O’Reilly, Tavis Smiley revealed he was born to a mom who at 18-yrs-old irresponsibly began introducing TEN newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens to an abusive childhood filled with Pain, Struggles and Hardships.
Tavis revealed that as of May 2015 NINE of his brothers and sisters continue dealing with the effects of POVERTY!
If Tavis genuinely cares about children, why isn’t he focused on America’s current National HEALTH CRISIS, aka America’s Culture of African American Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment that evolved from America’s long-standing, multi-generational, ignorant Culture of Racism?
I am referring to a Culture of Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect/Abandonment and Maltreatment responsible for popular American urban storytellers the late Tupac Shakur and repeat White House guest Kendrick Lamar vividly describing in their American art and interviews the “T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.” and “m.A.A.d. City” Child Abusing Cultures that through no fault of their own, deprived these American men, their childhood friends, as well as many of their elementary and JHS classmates from experiencing a SAFE, fairly or wonderfully happy American kid childhood.
Sadly the Criminal Child Abuse and Emotional Abandonment each of these men speaks about experiencing during a critical period of human/childhood development resulted with them maturing into emotionally ill adults revealing in public they’ve been experiencing acute depression as well as Suicidal Thoughts for most of their lives.
The same Culture of African American Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment responsible for significant numbers of popular American music performers and urban storytellers, for more than 30 years, creating and performing popular American art informing American society as well as our neighbors worldwide that American teen girls and women, aka the MATERNAL HALF of our population, should be viewed and treated as less than human *itches & *hores or ‘hoes’ unworthy of basic human respect
How many of my American neighbors are familiar with the late popular urban storyteller Tupac Shakur’s #T_H_U_G_L_I_F_E Child Abuse and Emotional Neglect AWARENESS concept:
“The Hate U Give Little Infants Fvvks Everyone” ~Tupac Shakur
“We need more people who care; you know what I’m saying? We need more women, mothers, fathers, we need more of that…” ~Tupac Shakur
Tupac intelligently recognized not only are American kids being UNJUSTLY OPPRESSED, IMPEDED and DEPRIVED from experiencing their full human potential, Tupac realized OUR NATION is being deprived of enjoying the potential achievements offered to ALL Americans by fairly or wonderfully happy kids maturing into reasonably responsible teens and adults caring about the future of OUR Nation, and the welfare of their peaceful, as well as less fortunate neighbors.
I believe Tupac correctly recognized Americans need to change the name of our “War On Poverty”, to “America’s Resolve to End Childhood Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment.”
Are you familiar with America’s current National Health Crisis?
Doctors Ross and Dietz offer insights into how our Early Childhood Development plays a key role in determining the type of individual we mature into.
Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, addressed inmates at Ironwood State Prison offering a compelling overview of the role that exposure to Childhood Trauma plays in the lives of Emotionally Troubled and chronically ill American teens and adults.
At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hit-man 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.
