Sadly, I fear generations from now Americans will be looking back at the Obama administration asking, “What meaningful ACTION did Barack and Michelle Obama take to improve the Quality of Childhood Life for a significant number of American children being raised in America’s Culture of African American Child Abuse and Emotional Neglect that evolved from America’s longstanding, 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 White House guest Kendrick Lamar and vividly describing 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 teens and 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 as less than human *itches and & *hores or ‘hoes’ unworthy of basic human respect.
Unfortunately, it’s plainly evident Kendrick, Tupac as well as untold numbers of American children are being raised and nurtured 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 American moms from embracing a mother’s natural instinct and urge to place theirs, or any child’s emotional well-being Above All Else!!!
At the 2015 BET Awards, Mr. Obama’s 28-year-old Kendrick Lamar performed these lyrics for a world wide audience,
“AND WE HATE THE PO-PO, WANNA KILL US DEAD IN THE STREET FO’ SHO.”
In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”
In paragraph eight of a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview published online Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a Grammy nominated song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL, told the interviewer:
*”Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets.”
“My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”
“I’M 6 YEARS OLD, SEEIN’ MY UNCLES PLAYING WITH SHOTGUNS, SELLIN’ DOPE IN FRONT OF THE APARTMENT”
“My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”
In this interview Kendrick speaks about being a SIX-YEAR-OLD first grade elementary school kid REGULARLY experiencing a potentially life-scarring mental and physical HEALTH Disease/Condition known to medical researchers as “Childhood Trauma.”
Knowing or unknowingly, Kendrick also candidly reveals witnessing daily the roots of POVERTY, MASS CRIMINAL CHILD ABUSE & MALTREATMENT, UNJUST HUMAN OPPRESSION, violent, emotionally ill/disturbed felon family & community GANG members who intentionally & recklessly ignored the emotional and physical well being of their children, UNJUSTLY DEPRIVING American kids from enjoying a home and community environment where their young minds feel SAFE, loved & cared for.
During a December 29, 2015 NPR interview, Kendrick recalls being a FIVE-YEAR-OLD CHILD witnessing his “FIRST” drug related “shotgun” homicide right outside the home where he, his siblings and numerous cousins were UNJUSTLY OPPRESSED & intentionally denied by their criminal primary child caretakers, their human right as well as ABSOLUTE HUMAN NEED to feel SAFE, loved and cared for during critical period of OUR human/childhood development.
No small wonder why Kendrick raps & speaks about childhood & adult depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts.

Ask yourself, does a caring, concerned, responsible world leader promote American art expressing hate for police authority as well as expressing contempt and hatred for American women and teens girls?
Or does a world leader wishing to be viewed as America’s first ‘Cool President’ exploit the popularity of Kendrick Lamar for his own benefit while ignoring the Culture of African American Child Abuse responsible for his friend Kendrick maturing into a deeply depressed and suicidal thinking American teen and adult?
Michelle and Barack Obama invite to their family home, American music performers and urban storytellers Promoting American art describing American women and teens girls as less than human creatures, as well as promoting America’s Gangsta/Street Culture responsible for VIOLENTLY MURDERING NINE-YEAR-OLD American children Miss Jamyla Bolden and Master Tyshawn Lee.
If you’ve read this writing I have a few mega-serious questions I believe all responsible, reasonably well-adjusted Americans should ask themselves:
Do loving, caring, reasonably well adjusted, responsible American citizens AID and ASSIST emotionally disturbed American music artists in promoting hate for American women and police officers?
Or do responsible, reasonably well-adjusted Americans recognize and acknowledge that significant numbers of our American neighbors continue struggling with psychological issues related to America’s ignorant Culture of Racism?
Honestly, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I consider THE FACT that Mr. Barack Obama invites to his family’s home a seriously depressed, suicidal thinking American who speaks about being a elementary school child REGULARLY witnessing and being UNJUSTLY OPPRESSED by emotionally or mentally disturbed, gun toting, drug peddling, violent family and community members…
…and then takes no action to protect and PREVENT American children from being raised, nurtured and socialized by emotionally damaged primary child caretakers.
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
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.
