Recently I learned homicide victim Tyrone Fleming was the creator of the extremely popular Youtube crime drama ‘848’.
Watching a one minute clip of Tyrone’s ‘848 series’ I recognize Tyrone created American media art vividly depicting America’s current CHILD CARE PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS, aka America’s potentially life scarring SYSTEMIC & GENERATIONAL Culture of Black or African American Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment that evolved from America’s multi-generational, ignorant, once legal Culture of Racism!
I am referring to a Culture of Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect, Abandonment and Maltreatment responsible for popular American urban story-TRUTH-tellers and ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victims the late Tupac Shakur (born 1971) and Mr. Barack “My Brother’s Keeper” Obama White House guest and friend Kendrick Lamar (born 1987) vividly describing in their American art and interviews the “T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.” and “Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City” Child Abuse 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 traumatic, potentially life-scarring 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 Suic*dal Thoughts for most of their lives.
The same Culture of African American Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment that for more than 30 years has been inspiring significant numbers of popular urban story-TRUTH-tellers to compose and promote American music art HATEFULLY informing our world that American girls, women and MOTHERS of African descent should be viewed as less than human *itches, *hores, ‘hoes’ or “THOTS” unworthy of being treated with basic human respect. (THOT = “That Hoe Over There”)
Unfortunately, it’s plainly evident Kendrick, Tupac as well as untold numbers of American children are being raised, nurtured and socialized by moms experiencing some type of illness preventing and impeding them from embracing and following their innate, natural maternal instinct to protect their child or children from harm.
Perhaps I’m wrong but something is preventing significant numbers of black or American moms of African descent from recognizing that placing ABOVE ALL ELSE the emotional well being of our Nation’s most precious and cherished assets, will most likely result with a fairly or wonderfully happy child maturing into a reasonably responsible teen and adult citizen caring about their own well being (May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suic!de by Black Children Surprises Researchers – The New York Times), as well as embracing compassion, empathy and respect for their peaceful or less fortunate neighbors.
How many of my American neighbors are familiar with the late ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victim Tupac Shakur’s (often misinterpreted) #T_H_U_G_L_I_F_E Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect, Abandonment and Maltreatment AWARENESS-PREVENTION 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
