I really wish depressed, angry, frustrated unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults (NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers) would turn their anger, outrage and resentment on THE SINGLE MOMS responsible for depriving them of experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood when single-moms selfishly and irresponsibly introduced their children to a life of pain and struggle by building families before acquiring the skills, PATIENCE and means to raise a happy child who matures into a fairly happy teen and adult with mostly fond childhood memories.

I am not advocating violence, not by any means. I talking about a Million Victims of Child Abuse March begging teen girls and young women to become better, more responsible caregivers to their developing girls and boys.

It’s time to bring the OG Culture to an end.

Is Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation’s children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness – instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

“Nicki Minaj Hurt By ‘The View’ Criticism, Wants To Be Seen For Her Smarts”

Sub: “Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect”

Onika “Nicki Minaj” Tanya Maraj (born December 8, 1982) , is a very attractive woman, until she opens her mouth and begins sharing her American rap artistry that includes lyrics characterizing and demeaning females as witches and bhores, essentially less than human creatures not deserving of respect. Which is pretty much the same way greedy early Americans characterized the African people they abducted and enslaved.

As a kid in the 60s, when I woke up in the morning I tuned in radio stations playing Motown music that celebrated and respected women, as well as life. My Motown friends wrote beautiful music that told me and ‘conditioned’ me to believe they were/are peaceful loving, talented people, deserving of my respect.

Today when grade school kids wake up they tune into popular music artists offering sounds of hate and disrespect. Last time I looked a Bvtch is an animal, or inhuman creature.

What subliminal messages are today’s youngsters learning when they hear American of African descent characterizing women, aka our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, as inhuman bvtches, not worthy of respect?

FLOTUS at an event titled Black Girls Rock, rubs elbows with Jennifer Hudson who $collaborates$ with Iggy Azalea, a rapper who in her performances characterizes females as witches and bhores.

Wendy Williams invites Taraji P. Henson on her show where both emphatically proclaim their love for a rapper named, Armando “Pitbull” Christian Pérez (born January 15, 1981).

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/05/23/taraji-p-hensonwendy-williams-are-some-celeb-moms-perpetuating-child-abuse-racial-prejudice/

In his very first rap performance titled “305 Anthem”, guess how Mr. Pitbull characterizes females, aka our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts?

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/pitbull-305anthem-lyrics.png

Frankly, if I was a kid growing up today, listening to the nastiness and disrespect being written and shared by many nationally popular Americans of African descent, I probably would not have much respect for them.

I might even be “conditioned” to think many are messed up people who I would shun because I would not want my kids rubbing elbows with children being raised to disrespect our population of maternal caregivers.

Of course the OBVIOUS question NO ONE wants to ask is, “Why are the children and grandchildren of my peaceful, loving Motown friends, characterizing females as witches and bhores?”

Texas Mother ‘ Kisa Jackson ‘ Responds to McKinney Pool Party – YouTube.

Hi. I spent nearly twelve years providing police services to a Rap Hip Hop influenced Brooklyn, NY community, most all my civilian co-workers were competent, responsible loving moms, most all lived in this community. Ms. Jackson’s calm, well spoken words remind me of many of my co-workers.

Sadly these caring moms, their families and peaceful neighbors were potential victims of harmful anti-social acts committed by depressed, frustrated, unpredictable angry teens and adults, who as children were emotionally abused, neglected and/or maltreated by MANY immature teen and young moms living in this community. Moms who irresponsibly built small or large families before acquiring life experiences, practical skills, PATIENCE, and the means to independently provide for their children.

A question or observation I often heard in this community, “Do you see how she is raising that child!?”

In his 2015 Grammy Award winning rap performance, “I”, American Rap Performance Artist Kendrick Lamar reveals, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

In a January 2011 LAWeekly interview American rapper and 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and victim denial that was nominated for a Grammy award, he 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.'”

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

Ms. Jackson correctly speaks about holding parents accountable. How does society hold accountable Kendrick Lamar’s immediate and extended families, as well as his depressed neighbors for depriving Kendrick, his siblings, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from experiencing the safe, some-what happy life he is aware most American kids are enjoying?

Seems to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends and elementary school classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

Perhaps these obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, confused not knowing right from wrong, OR CARING ABOUT right from wrong.

I’ve met depressed, frustrated kids like Kendrick. I’ve arrested them, witnessed their pain and sadness, learned the roots of their pain and sadness when I met their caretakers, mostly single moms. I’ve watched young teens tearfully express their anger at their moms, for introducing them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

I am not certain how society holds accountable caregivers who, let’s be honest, according to Kendrick Lamar inflict egregious criminal acts of maltreatment and long-lasting emotional child abuse on their children, causing many children to experience “Cognitive Dissonance, ” a debilitating mental condition researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy describes in her book, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS)”.

“Yeah when black men start defending their women instead of putting us down.”

KnutesNiche replies to Alina Lane:

Hello Alina.

Have you ever wondered why, during the 60s talented Motown musicians wrote lyrics expressing their love, admiration and fondness for women?

Yet less than a generation later, my Motown friend’s children and grandchildren were writing rap hip hop performance lyrics characterizing women as B-dogs and broom riders, or less than human creatures not deserving of respect?

Alina, what’s up with that? Why the change in attitude toward women during the generation following the civil rights era when my Motown friends were making me, my friends and neighbors smile and dance to their sounds?

Alina Lane replies to KnutesNiche:

“How am I suppose to know?

I was born in 1994. I enjoy music from the 60’s & almost all old school music. But in my generation all I seen is black men always belittling black women & degrading is. The whole already hates us & to have black men add to that. That’s fvcked up.

Knute replies to Alina:

Hi. Alina.

Alina, the roots of disrespect some or many black men and women show for each began growing in the 60s, when well-intentioned social program designed to help victims of human ignorance known as racism allowed people, mostly single moms to build families before acquiring skills, maturity, PATIENCE and the means to independently care for their developing children.

Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter, born in 1969, and Tupac Shakur, born in 1971, are examples of men born during America’s post civil rights era, both are men who resent their moms and/or dads for introducing them to a life of poverty, a life that caused them struggle and experience hardship that caused them to become depressed children.

A seriously emotionally depressed Tupac writes about waking in the morning with thoughts of suicide suicide in his ‘That Just The Way It Is’ rap. In his ‘Dear Mama’ rap he writes about loving/hating his mom, and despising his dad for the life of hardships they introduced him to.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/tupac-thats-just-the-way.png

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/tupac-dearmama-lyrics.png

In his Brooklyn’s Finest rap Shawn Carter indirectly reveals the child abuse/neglect he experienced when he writes about selling harmful drugs to his neighbors and using his Mack_Milli automatic firearm to protect his Marcy Houses drug operation and cause fear to peaceful people living and working in the surrounding neighborhoods.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/shawn-jayz-carter-brooklyns-finest.png

Alina, I was a Brooklyn cop during the period Shawn raps about selling drugs and shooting people. This is not comic book fantasy Shawn raps/writes about, they are his personal experiences with child abuse that leads to violence.

I witnessed the fear, emotional and physical damage Shawn writes about him and his crew/gang of depressed, angry, frustrated friends causing to peaceful people. All this damage was caused because Shawn’s mom irresponsibly allowed him to run wild, harming, and sometimes killing their neighbors.

If Tupac’s raps are not convincing enough, please read the January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview with 2015 Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar which Kendrick says:

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 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.’?”

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

In a October 2012 LAWeekly interview Kendrick reveals:

“My school was a 10-minute walk from where I stayed. I was in first grade, and my mom walked me there and said, ‘I want you to walk home by yourself.’ And I was, like, ‘You gonna be at home?’

She was, like, ‘Yeah,'” he remembers.

“That was my fear, that she wasn’t going to be home.” Sure enough, he arrived to an empty driveway. What he takes from this story, however, is a lesson: Don’t rely on someone always being there for you.

Alina, if I had not witnessed on a daily basis with my own eyes the emotional abuse/neglect/maltreatment Kendrick speaks about, I would have difficulty understanding and empathizing with Kendrick.

Though I have seen the damage kids sustain when their moms irresponsibly introduce life into our world and then proceed to emotionally damage developing life by failing to provide adequate emotional support and guidance to their children.

In other words, Alina, there is a population of American  moms who need to do a much better job of raising their kids if we expect them to begin writing music praising and loving women, as my Motown friends did in their music.

Alina, most all my civilian co-workers were moms living in this Brooklyn community. In my opinion they were competent at their jobs in the precinct house, and caring, competent moms who were burdened with the stresses of preventing their children from being influenced by the depressed, emotionally damaged kids running wild and disrupting their children’s education in school.

Alina, kids born post civil rights had a lot of human ignorance to deal with as they tried to develop into peaceful, fairly happy teens and adults.

First, kids like Shawn, Tupac, Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Cordozar Broadus Jr.(born October 20, 1971), O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson, Sr. (born June 15, 1969) had to deal with emotional stresses of being part of an American population emotionally damaged by slavery and racism.

Then these young children had to deal with being raised and nurtured by depressed caregivers themselves dealing with the profound effects of being disrespected and treated as less than human by a small population of wealthy Americans who selfishly fed propaganda to an ignorant/unenlightened American public. Propaganda promoted by so-called educated Americans who informed a population of ignorant, poorly educated people of a new, developing nation that black people were inferior humans, therefore treating them poorly was acceptable.

Until recently I believed racism was one of many human ignorance we naively embraced as our human species evolved.

However, after watching a one-hour and twenty-minute lecture in which researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy talks about the investigation into violence she conducted for her book, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS),” I have questions as to whether or not racism is a human ignorance, or a tool of deceit created by America’s forefathers to justify slavery and treating black people as less than human, much like many of today’s rappers and hip hop performers characterize their black brothers and sisters in their performance lyrics.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/dr-joy-degruy-addresses-black-depression-violence-and-healing/

Alina, I became sad and angry listening to Dr. DeGruy describe the horrible acts some Americans engaged in to further demonize slaves in the minds of less educated Americans who witnessed the emotional and physical abuse slaves experienced.

Though my anger was tempered by the fact there were many Americans whose natural compassion, empathy and intelligence told them slavery was wrong. Many Americans calling themselves Abolitionists, placed their reputations and in many instances their lives at stake to save their fellow human beings from the emotional and physical damage they experienced by being treated as less than human or people not equal to other Americans compassion and respect.

Alina, if you watch Dr. DeGruy’s entire presentation I have few doubts that you too will become angry. It is quite natural for most human beings to be horrified when learning about fellow peaceful humans being harmed and/or treated as less than human.

Hopefully your anger will be tempered knowing our society, aka human species, has evolved, actively addressing our past human ignorance by creating laws to educate and protect people from human ignorance.

Another aspect of Dr. DeGruy’s presentation that enlightened me was talk about “Cognitive Dissonance” and it’s effects on human thinking and development.

On my WordPress pages I write about what I learned from Dr. DeGruy, using my “common sense” that Dr. DeGruy speaks about, to relate how Cognitive Dissonance affects today’s adult and developing Americans.

Particularly kids like Kendrick Lamar who in their elementary school classrooms are being taught peaceful values and to respect their neighbors, while in their homes they are being taught or exposed to values that deprive them of experiencing the safe, happy life the media and TV tell them a majority of their American classmates experience.

The mind-harming lessons many of today’s developing children are learning in their home environments is the reason many teens and adults are creating raps characterizing females as “witches and bhores,” or less than human people, people not deserving of respect.

Sadly, modern day slvve masters, beginning with but not limited to record producers/promoters like…

James “Jimmy” Iovine (born March 11, 1953)

Marion “Suge” Knight, Jr. (born April 19, 1965)

Sean “Puff Daddy”, “Diddy”, “P. Diddy” John Combs (born November 4, 1969)

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969)

Curtis ’50 Cent’ James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975)

Kanye Omari West (born June 8, 1977)

…have no interest in speaking about the child abuse/neglect Kendrick was bold enough to share with his fans. These men became famous and wealthy promoting rap hip hop performances that demean other black teens and adults, as well as characterizing females, aka moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters, as less than human “witches or bhores.”

As far as these rap hip hop producers are concerned, it is in their best interests to promote propaganda that “whitey” continues preventing many of our black American friends, neighbors and co-workers from thriving and flourishing in our society.

The marketing strategy and philosophy in Rap Hip Hop industry/world is to incite children, teens and young adults..incite anger in developing children, keep our growing population of younger fans angry by inciting more anger…and they will purchase our Rap Performance American Art products.

The same applies to older black Americans who were kids when the painful stings of racism affected their lives, preventing them from experiencing the safe, relatively happy lives they witnessed most American kids and adults enjoying.

I appreciate educators, authors, doctors and researchers educating today’s society about our past, describing how human ignorance/racism personally harmed them, a population of American people and our nation.

However, when reading and listening to these older Americans who experienced the struggles caused by racism, I witness very few writing or talking about healing.

Even Dr. DeGruy who in her video-taped lecture speaks about healing, does not offer a method for easing the wounds of racism. Though like many older Americans who were affected by pre-civil-rights ignorance, I can sense their lingering anger and resentment.

I understand residual anger and resentment. Employing the human empathy my parents, community and educators schooled me to embrace (sometimes through discipline) I too would feel resentment toward anyone I believed willfully stifled my freedoms and opportunity to pursue and enjoy my peaceful vision of Life, Liberty and Happiness.

Though much like the rap hip hoppers and their promoters/producers, many Americans who speak and write about the racist human ignorance of our past have have an economic incentive to keep the dwindling flames of racism flickering.

Alina, in the early 90s Tupac rapped about the childhood pain his parents and community caused him to experience. In 2011 and 2102 Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar, communicating in plain English, told a reporter about the child abuse his parents and neighbors subjected him to.

Alina, why is nearly everyone in our society ignoring the clear, unambiguous descriptions of child abuse Tupac and Kendrick lament they were victims of during critical periods in the young lives?

I mean Holy Smokes, what more do these men and many other American rappers who directly or indirectly describe in their lyrics being victims of or witnessing child abuse, have to do for OUR society to hear them?

Alina, when Kendrick was a child witnessing the madness around him, knowing it was wrong, he felt helpless, unable to voice his opinions about ending the madness his teachers told him, and in his heart, he knew was wrong and harmful. Madness that prevented him, his siblings, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from experiencing a safe, fairly stress and cognitive dissonance free childhood.

As an adult Kendrick found his voice and in January of 2011 he revealed the torment and depression his parents, extended family and neighbors caused him to experience. Torment that causes many children to develop into teens and adults who often express their anger, frustrations and resentment bu committing harmful anti-social acts against the peaceful neighbors and communities. Much like a young Baltimore teen who was irresponsibly introduced to a life of hardship and struggle by Baltimore mom and grandmother Toya Graham.

Alina, do you have an opinion for why Ms. Graham’s son and dozens of his classmates engaged in acts of depravity and violence against the people trying to protect his mom and sisters from the anger and  frustrations of children born to immature women who make irresponsible choices when building their families?

“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.'”

Knowing she was introducing children into the same depressed, struggling environment she was raised and nurtured in, Baltimore single-mom and grandmother Toya Graham built a family of SIX children, one of whom was observed acting with depraved indifference for human life toward people trying to protect peaceful people in Ms. Graham’s community.

red-dotDoes anyone besides me see the common denominator these struggling American families have in common?

I spent nearly twelve years providing police services to a Rap Hip Hop influenced Brooklyn, NY community, most all my civilian co-workers were competent, responsible loving moms, most all lived in this community.

Sadly these caring moms, their families and peaceful neighbors were potential victims of harmful anti-social acts committed by depressed, frustrated, unpredictable angry teens and adults, who as children were emotionally abused, neglected and/or maltreated by MANY immature teen and young moms living in this community. Moms who irresponsibly built small or large families before acquiring life experiences, practical skills, PATIENCE, and the means to independently provide for their children.

A question or observation I often heard in this community, “Do you see how she is raising that child?”

I am not a hater, I was a toddler when Motown music was in its infancy, Motown and me grew up together. Motown musicians wrote and composed awesome music celebrating life, love, peace and unity. I ‘felt’ their music, and danced to their music, celebrating life right along with these talented musicians, their producers and their millions of admirers around our tiny blue orb.

As far as this young developing American suburban kid was concerned, black people were okay in my book. As I matured I was happy to learn the human ignorance of our past was being addressed and laws were being written to educate and protect ALL my American neighbors from human ignorance.

Understandably, some people harmed by racism took advantage of well intentioned social programs that resulted in them building small or large families they could not possibly expect to thrive and survive when considering their lack of skills and the nature of the communities they birthed their children in.

This is very short, non-inclusive list of children born to depressed people who, I am sorry to say, failed their children, causing their kids to mature into teens and adults who rap/write about committing harmful anti-social activities against their peaceful neighbors.

Early victims of emotional child abuse, neglect and or maltreatment:

Tupac Amaru Shakur (born Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996)

Curtis ’50 Cent’ James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975)

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969)

Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), better known by his stage names The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie or Biggie Smalls,

Jonathan “Lil Jon” Smith (born January 17, 1971)

Christopher “Ludacris” Brian Bridges (born September 11, 1977)

Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Cordozar Broadus Jr.(born October 20, 1971) Snoop Dogg

O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson, Sr. (born June 15, 1969)

Jeffrey “Ja Rule” Atkins (born February 29, 1976) Hollis

*note: I spent years personally witnessing the emotional and physical damage Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carte raps/writes about causing to peaceful people living and working in his Brooklyn, NY Marcy Houses community, and the surrounding neighborhoods.

I believe these men…

James “Jimmy” Iovine (born March 11, 1953)
Marion “Suge” Knight, Jr. (born April 19, 1965)
Sean “Puff Daddy”, “Diddy”, “P. Diddy” John Combs (born November 4, 1969)

…are responsible for exploiting victims of child abuse by encouraging victims to write about, for monetary profit and notoriety, their self harming and community harming life experiences. Not one of these rap producers have a vested interest in getting help for their performers who obviously are among the most emotionally damaged people in America.

These men as well as many other adults, including rap hip hop lyricists and producers Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter and Kanye Omari West (born June 8, 1977), are promoting the emotional and physical harm that rappers write about causing to peaceful struggling and working people >>> for the sole purpose of lining their own pockets with cash that many clueless Americans offer them.

Sadly, today’s young people across or globe are growing up listening to many of my Motown friend’s children and grandchildren writing lyrics that demean women, essentially characterizing their moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters as ‘witches and bhores,” or in other words, relating their beliefs that females are subhuman people undeserving of respect.

I was fortunate to witness a period of American history when our society actively moved to eradicate the disrespect my Motown friends and generations of their emotionally damaged American predecessors endured.

Sadly as I continued maturing, learning and evolving as an individual human being, I witnessed a new form of disrespect developing in our society for my Motown friends …

This new form of disrespect for black Americans was coming from their children…children who as they matured and evolved, realized their moms and/or dads made poor choices by introducing them to a life of struggle and hardship, depriving them, their siblings, neighborhood friends and elementary or junior high school classmates of experiencing the safe, mostly happy life many other American children were enjoying.

Frankly, I witnessed countless innocent kids being subjected to some horrific emotional and/or physical abuse by their immature single-mothers. When I place myself in these kid’s shoes, I can imagine I would be just as angry for being deprived of a safe, some-what happy childhood.

This is my theory for why many of my Motown friend’s children and grandchildren write lyrics demeaning their moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters. If you have another I would look forward to reading it.

red-dotIn a 2011 LAWeekly interview, rapper Kendrick Lamar has shared with our world his personal experiences with child abuse and his genuine observations about who is perpetuating poverty that results in children being deprived of experiencing a safe consistent life.

Thanks to Kendrick, himself a victim of child abuse/maltreatment, there is no point to offering MY theory for why child abuse leads to kids growing up depressed, lacking or willfully disregarding the compassion and empathy they are being taught to embrace by their school teachers.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

There is no point to offering MY theory about who is primarily responsible for creating/driving today’s poverty that often irreversibly harms many of our American children who develop into depressed teens and adults.

There is no point to offering MY theory for why many children and adults are in denial about the child abuse they experienced and try to cope with into and throughout their adult lives.

Though In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter and Grammy nominee Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse, offering her theory that many child-victims of abuse will not admit they were abused, nor will abuse victims identify their abusers.

“Yes I think I’m okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

Unlike Kendrick Lamar, very few of us are willing to take a critical look, openly acknowledging the shortcomings or the poor choices made by the people who gave us life.

Knowing he developed a fondness for alcohol while serving in Korea as a young mechanic, my mom married my dad when he returned home. Fortunately dad was a peaceful, functional liquid drug addict, a hard working good provider for mom, sis and me.

Until he cheated, which resulted in a Mexican sanctioned divorce and three of us asking government welfare people to help us while mom recovered from the nervous breakdown she experienced after the trauma my dad caused her.

After their divorce, most all of my parent’s friends followed the same divorce path, dropping like flies…one morning I woke up at 3AM listening to my seemingly loving neighbors, verbally battling loud enough to wake me. After mom was forced to sell our home, repaying the welfare people and thanking them for their help, I learned from a former neighbor that my 3AM battling next-door neighbors experienced a contentious divorce.

Seems to me there are generations of young people from all communities across our nation who yesterday and today continue making poor choices that ultimately harm many of our nation’s children.

Do I resent my mom for marrying a man who abused a harmful drug? Considering the popularity of alcohol at the time my folks got hitched, I can understand mom not realizing how harmful alcohol is. In my opinion, despite making a poor choice in selecting a life partner to build her family with, my mom did her best for sis and me. Including forbidding us to befriend children in the neighborhood whose parents were doing a poor job of raising their kids.

Fortunately, there were only a few irresponsible parents in our neighborhood who allowed their children to run wild. About fifteen homes away from our front door, a liquid drug loving NYC cop religiously built a family of TEN children who experienced very little, if any discipline. Most all the kids were disruptive, a constant source of trouble in our schools.

This one family was responsible for causing most all the emotional and physical trauma in our middle-class suburban neighborhood. In the early 70s two of his older boys were arrested for possessing heroin. Lovely family.

While I may not resent my mom for the poor choice she made by falling in love with and marrying a drug abusing life-mate, there are many kids who do resent their moms for the choices they made…choices that cause them to experience unimaginable turmoil and frustrations that eventually needs to be released.

Baltimore teen Michael Graham-Singleton, his friends and classmates were video recorded venting their pent-up anger, frustration and outrage at one group of authority people their depressed moms, “wild” dads, depressed neighbors and ignorant or self-absorbed community leaders are conditioning them to believe are responsible for their hardships and struggle.

I give Kendrick Lamar much credit for boldly identifying who caused his depression. More victims of child abuse need to speak up and allow their voices that were stifled and ignored when youngsters, to be clearly heard now that they are adults.

Sadly, too many people with credible public influence, experience fame and bankable riches from hiding or ignoring the truths about the most horrific black on black crime no one wants to address:

Maternal apathy and child abuse.

red-dotAny thoughts, criticisms or possible solutions for greatly reducing the child abuse and/or Cognitive Dissonance many Americans rappers directly or indirectly rap/write about personally experiencing or witnessing their siblings, neighborhood friends and classmates have to cope with as they try to listen to their elementary school teachers, focused on developing into peaceful, thriving, somewhat content American citizens with a potential for accomplishing much more…or simply finding employment they like and raising a family of peaceful children who continue the cycle of happy human beings enjoying all the wonders our physical world offers us?

Dr. Joy DeGruy Addresses Black Depression, Violence; and Healing?

Author and Violence Researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy
Author and Violence Researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy
Author and Violence Researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy

Dr. Joy DeGruy Clearly Describes A Potentially Life-Scarring Mental Condition Experienced By Many Kids Who Are Victims of Child Abuse/Neglect.

Hello. I try to calmly relate my experiences providing uniform and investigative police services for more than a decade to the Brooklyn, NY community Shawn Jay Z Carter joyously raps about attempting to destroy with his gangs/crews/posse’s 24/7 poison drug peddling trade enforced and protected by semi-automatic ‘Mack Mills’ Shawn raps/speaks using to terrorize and dominate his peaceful neighbors.

Though I am told my writings are not always sensitive. I apologize if my frustrations seep into the my accounts of personally witnessing child abuse, as well as how abuse/neglect adversely impacts the lives of developing newborns, infants, toddlers, children, teens and their communities.

While doing online research into child abuse I came across this video, opened it, spied a face and heard a gentle voice I grew up hearing and respecting. I knew Gil Noble to be a accomplished and credible NYC news reporter and interviewer so I decided to watch the segment with Dr. Joy DeGruy.

After this talk I was still curious about ‘cognitive dissonance’, wondering how it might relate to victims of child abuse? So I looked further, locating this video in which Dr. DeGruy speaks about the six years of research she conducted for her book, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS)”.

wiki-cognitive-dis-002
wiki-cognitive-dissonance

When I learned she has an interest in selling her book, I immediately thought I was about to hear the same old retread talk about slavery and racism. As I listened I realized I was wrong, Dr. DeGruy was saying some things I can definitely relate to my life experiences and the years of child abuse I witnessed. Abuse that caused me to experience and deal with emotional trauma.

Opening her talk Dr. DeGruy stated, “I did about six years of research specifically looking at violence. My area of focus is violence.”

This statement immediate drew me in because I spent twelve years providing uniform and investigative police services to a Brooklyn, NY community where on a daily basis I witnessed the aftermath of depressed children, teens and adults committing emotionally and physically harmful, anti-social acts against their peaceful neighbors.

A little peek at my background. I was a toddler when Motown was in its infancy, we grew up together, virtual friends. As a public school kid growing up during that tumultuous, exciting/disturbing era in American and world history, (I looked forward to periodic bomb shelter training) I listened to very appealing, well produced music shared by talented black music artists while contemporaneously learning about racism and slavery.

I was trying to figure out why I was being taught All Men Are Created Equal and all peaceful men have an absolute right to enjoy their vision for Life, Liberty, (Love) and Happiness, yet there seemed to be a number of freedom loving Americans having a problem with black people who were writing music that made me smile and who fought/sacrificed in wars to help preserve our/my freedom. What’s up with them, why are some of my American neighbors upset with my Motown friends?

It was not making sense until I actually began living life, experiencing and learning of the many human ignorance some of my fellow humans embrace, as well as the human proclivity for being wary of and questioning the character or background of people who are not like them, or from totally different cultures.

As I acquired life experiences, evaluating them for usefulness, tucking them away in my aging sometimes corrupt memory files, I realized the scope of racism, the pain it caused, would most likely take generations to subside, and a few more generations to heal the wounds caused by human ignorance.

The doctor spoke about trauma caused by racism/slavery, how it affected the actual victims and subsequent generations as horror stories of slavery and racism are passed down from generation to generation.

Dr. DeGruy correctly suggested figuring this out is not rocket science, common sense should tell the average person that creating laws ending slavery and racism did not wipe away the trauma experienced by people who for more than two hundred years were thought of and treated as less than human. As an average teen in the early 70s learning more about our world, human ignorance, bigotry, I realized it would take generations to heal those deep wounds.

Listening to the doctor describe HOW supposedly educated, mostly wealthy people profiting from slavery demonized slaves, characterizing them as less than human made me think. “Were these educated Americans genuinely embracing human ignorance, or were they aware slaves are just as competent as any other human? Were educated, wealthy Americans demonizing slaves before a poorly educated/ignorant American public as a means to keep human compassion and empathy from interfering with their profits as the public witnessed how slaves were being treated by slave-masters?”

Listening to Dr. DeGruy’s presentation expanded my understanding of racism. Now I am not sure if human ignorance fueled slavery/racism, or did educated wealthy people taking advantage of a poorly educated and trusting public, create propaganda to assuage the public and continue exploiting humans for free labor? Hmmm…

Regardless, emotional damage was done to my Motown friends and their predecessors. Despite suffering centuries of horrific emotional damage, my friends wrote and composed beautiful sounds, many artists embracing love, peace and unity that made me, many of my friends and neighbors smile, wanting and needing to dance celebrating the joys of the life we were introduced to.

Dr. DeGruy shared how emotional trauma caused by racism and slavery affected the actual victims and subsequent generations as the horror stories of slavery and racism are passed down from generation to generation.

During this educational, insightful/revealing presentation, Dr. DeGruy speaks about “social learning theory,” emphasizing these words, “Hello, social learning theory….you learn from those in your environment.”

This is where I pressed the pause button when my mind began processing too many thoughts at once, all stirred by the doctor’s comment about social learning.

My first thought was about Grammy Award winning American rapper Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (born June 17, 1987), who in 2015 was awarded a Grammy for writing a rap performance that included these lyrics, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

Upon reading Kendrick’s words about experiencing depression when he was a kid, my child-abuse memory folder auto-opened, immediately browsing the hundreds, perhaps more, of depressed kids I met or observed during the twelve years I conducted layman’s research into child abuse/neglect.

Abuse and neglect that often lead to children not embracing compassion or empathy, or intentionally ignoring empathy and compassion because, “My life sucks, why should I care about yours!?”

I’ve met many depressed children who developed into depressed teens and adults, often violently venting their anger and frustrations on their peaceful neighbors and communities. Most of the faces have faded with time, though many of the situations that caused me to meet or regularly observe these kids are still somewhat vivid.

Including some very vivid memories of Brooklyn’s Marcy Houses during the period young Shawn Jay Z Carter raps about utilizing his “Mack-Milli” automatic firearms to protect him and his crew of equally emotionally abused/damaged/neglected teens from rival drug/contraband dealers in nearby public housing developments.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/jay-z-raps-about-child-abuse-the-fear-and-harm-he-caused-to-peaceful-people/

I became stressed and depressed from personally witnessing muzzle flashes, hearing gunshots and interviewing innocent or not-so-innocent victims of gunfire or other emotionally debilitating and physically harmful activities Shawn and many rappers write about.

I cannot begin to ‘fully empathize’ with the ever-present fear for their safety every single person living and working in Marcy was forced to endure/cope with while Shawn profited from the 24/7 Brooklyn drug trade he clearly raps he was actively promoting, thus further harming emotionally damaged people born and nurtured during the post civil rights era, as Shawn was. In my opinion Shawn Carter often joyously writes/raps about callously harming the children of my Motown friends. Not cool!

However, as a human being I can empathize with the caution and extra care peaceful human beings residing in the houses or surrounding neighborhoods must exercise to protect themselves and/or their families from the activities of abused/neglected teens.

In a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview published online , 2015 Grammy Award winner Kendrick Lamar clearly explains what caused his early childhood depression and why he continued to experience depression into adulthood.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

“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.'”

Kendrick speaks about experiencing Childhood Trauma, witnessing MASS CHILD ABUSE & MALTREATMENT, Human OPPRESSION, violent felon family & community members who intentionally & recklessly ignored the well being of their children, depriving these kids from enjoying a home environment where they feel safe, loved & cared for.

In school little Kendrick & his Elementary School classmates are being taught to be good citizens & to respect their neighbors.

While at home, under duress of being harmed if they open their lil mouths, families & communities are teaching their children anti-social ‘people and community’ harming values that often results with kids experiencing during a critical period of their childhood development a mentally debilitating condition known as Cognitive Dissonance.

In this one paragraph, it seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong…because as they mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick’s OPPRESSIVE family and community environment I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents, particularly my mom, for being immature irresponsible “living wild” Violent Felon embracing adults who deprived me of enjoying a safe, fairly happy “Average Joe” American kid childhood.

Though like many victims of child abuse, most likely I would deny my parents harmed me, seeking to blame others for the pain my parents caused to me.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents? Cognitive Dissonance

In December 2015 Kendrick reveals he was five-years-old when he witnessed a drug related homicide occur in front of the home where he, his siblings and numerous cousins are supposed to feel safe.

In a October 2012 LAWeekly writer Rebecca Haithcoat interviewed Kendrick Lamar where he speaks about being a SIX-YEAR-OLD child emotionally neglected and abandon by his mother.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

No small wonder why Kendrick raps & speaks about childhood & adult depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts.

Kendrick Lamar Talks About ‘u,’ His Depression & Suicidal Thoughts (Pt. 2) | MTV Video News April 2015

red-dotAmerican talk show host, author, liberal political commentator, entrepreneur, advocate and philanthropist Mr. Tavis Smiley was introduced to life by a young woman who was eighteen-years-old when she began building her family of ten children?

During a discussion about poverty Tavis revealed to Bill OReilly his NINE brothers and sisters to this day (May 2015) still struggle with poverty, and that he is the only one of his sisters and brothers to enjoy a prosperous American life?

Does any one have doubts that as he matured, a young maturing Tavis regularly questioned the choices his mother made for him, his brothers and sisters? SILENT RESENTMENT

Growing up witnessing the negative influences of “The Street” culture in her community, Baltimore grandmother Toya Graham, while still a teen begins building a family of SIX children, one of whom, her teen son Michael Graham-Singleton, was observed trying to cause grave harm to humans attempting to protect peaceful people from harm.

In a CNN interview, apparently denying reality or showing little concern for her credibility, Ms. Graham strongly denies reality, adamantly imploring, “At no time is my son a thug.”

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/05/01/black-child-abuse/

If teen mom and Baltimore Mom of The Year Toya Graham had built a smaller family she could more easily provide for, nurture and supervise, would her depressed, angry young teen son be in The Street attempting to cause grave harm to peaceful people attempting to protect Ms. Graham’s peaceful neighbors?

red-dot

After nearly twelve years of rigorous, often intense daily research of people I witnessed suffering depression from the effects of child abuse, my layman’s opinion is Kendrick Lamar’s description of his immediate and extended blood relative family, as well as the environment he was exposed to while trying to develop into a human being able to compete in our competitive world, pretty much explains why poverty and pain continues to harm so many children and their communities…poverty and pain caused by selfish, irresponsible, immature young women who really need to stop harming their kids and communities, beginning by responsibly building smaller families they can better care for and supervise.

Holding off building a family until acquiring some practical skills and life experience while still a teenager would also be very helpful in easing the pain and struggles of Childhood Abuse & Neglect, aka Poverty, many immature moms irresponsibly subject their children to.

I realize criticizing women and not criticizing men seems unfair.

Like it or not, agree with me or not, women are the givers of human life. In most ancient and modern societies women are the primary caregivers and nurturers responsible for raising and socializing society’s young.

In America, each woman has an inalienable right, as well as responsibility to determine when she is prepared for motherhood. Married or not, men do not make that decision.

red-dotGetting back to ‘Cognitive Dissonance‘. As children mature, I am curious if cognitive dissonance plays an active role in emotionally harming Kendrick, his friends and schoolmates living in similar homes and environments?

In school, children interact with mature, responsible adults educating them about society’s rules, respect and how to peacefully succeed/prosper in America.

At home children witness on TV the peaceful fun life many American kids are enjoying, while slowly being conditioned to accept the pain and hardships of the community harming “The Street” hustle life embraced by their immature, “wild” parent(s) and neighbors.

I’ve met, detained, and/or arrested more than a few child/teen/adult victims of abuse/neglect who voiced their resentment/anger/disappointment with their moms and/or dads for introducing them to a life of hardship, pain and struggle.

When venting their anger, frustration and rage at parents who emotionally abuse(d) and neglect(ed) them, I’ve observed countless children/teens/adults frequently resorting to violence that harms their peaceful neighbors.

Dr. DeGruy states she focuses on violence. I’ve experienced violence, witnessed how it negatively impacts the lives of peaceful people and their community. I did not like witnessing people harming each other or themselves…especially during what seemed to me like a never ending raging flood of violence.

In my life I witnessed some extremely saddening/maddening scenes of humans sharing physical violence causing physical injuries that heal with time.

Though witnessing emotional violence committed against a kid who just wanted to be a kid enjoying a fairly happy young life, was often more difficult to bear, knowing emotional wounds often scar developing children for life.

The life-scarring emotional wounds incurred by emotional abuse and violence at the hands of irresponsible “living wild” caregivers are responsible for what many refer to as “black on black crime.”

Without these wounds, in my opinion, most all of these kids would develop into fairly well adjusted people capable of achieving greatness. Sadly many parents actively thwart their kids from becoming peaceful teens and adults with unlimited potential for helping themselves and all American communities.

This young teen boy I arrested is a victim of “emotional violence” and “black on black crime.”

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/victim-of-abuse/

red-dotI am not certain if this young college woman is affected by ‘Cognitive Dissonance,’ though I would like to learn Dr. DeGruy’s theory for why she exhibits multiple personalities?

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/american-college-student-torn-between-two-worlds/

red-dotTupac Amaru Shakur born Lesane Parish Crooks; (June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) is a more well known/popular victim of child abuse/neglect, rapping/writing about the emotional damage he sustained as a result of being irresponsibly introduced to life by  depressed, immature caregivers who caused him great emotional harm.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/tupac-thats-just-the-way.png
https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/tupac-dearmama-lyrics.png

It seems obvious Tupac’s caregivers and Kendrick’s caregivers have experienced “cognitive dissonance.” Especially their moms who in my opinion have to realize they are introducing their children to a life of pain and struggle, yet they do so anyway at great peril to the emotional development of their children.

Kids are not stupid. For many kids, as they mature their thinking becomes more sophisticated, some earlier than others. They realize their single-moms or parents are selfish, immature people who irresponsibly birthed them before bothering to acquire the skills required to successfully raise, nurture and provide for them. Many kids realize they were introduced to life by women many pejoratively characterize as “Welfare Queens.”

I’m certain there are many depressed, frustrated children who resent their moms and dads for exploiting social policies that lend aid to immature, struggling caregivers, assisting them in building large families of brothers and sisters who struggle right along with them. All because their immature, often depressed, often poorly educated mom acted irresponsibly by introducing them to a family with too many mouths to feed.

I am certain that everyday there are thousands of emotionally damaged American children silently thinking, “Mom, why did you have so many kids when you cannot feed, clothe and keep a watchful eye on all of us?”

red-dotToday, living/surviving in American urban communities, there are many child victims of abuse/neglect/maltreatment who deny they are/were being abused, choosing to protect their parental/caregiver abusers. I have no doubts, many of these kids do not even realize they are victims of emotional abuse/neglect.

I have met caregivers who have no clue they are subjecting their children to abuse/neglect. On my blog I write about a few moms I met who lacked most or all skills required to raise and nurture a fairly happy, peaceful child. This is one of many totally clueless moms I witnessed “cluelessly” harming their children. I named her Boom-Box Mom.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/brooklyns-boom-box-mom/

red-dot

Previously I mentioned kids ‘silently’ think about the anti-social conduct they witness their caregiver(s) engaging in, or they silently think about the poor choices their parents made that resulted in them not experiencing the fun, safe, mostly happy life many other American kids enjoy.

In 1987, the same year Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote “Luka”, a song about child abuse that garnered three Grammy nominations, including Record and Song Of The Year for her Top 5 hit about child abuse.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

When questioned, most kids will clam-up rather than say an ill word about their parental abusers.

However, I’ve met a few child abuse victims whose level of frustration with their caregivers pushed them to make poor choices causing the police to become involved…and subsequently reveal their true feelings, as the young teen I arrested in the “/victim-of-abuse/” story I linked to this writing.

The depressed, emotionally damaged teen I arrested is not alone. After spending several months reading rap performance lyrics penned by many popular American rappers I recognize they too are victims of, or witnessed friends who were victims of some pretty horrible childhood abuse.

Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Michael Carter, Jr. (Born September 27, 1982) is an example of a damaged kid who at twelve-years-old was exploited, and in my opinion subjected to child maltreatment by American Rap Hip Hop producers.

What happened to post civil rights era children that causes many of them to view women differently than my Motown friends?

What trauma did children experience or were children exposed to that inspires many kids born in the 1970s and beyond to characterize women, aka moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters, as less than human bitches, and whores unworthy of respect?

Tupac and Kendrick have answered this question in their rap lyrics and/or interviews. Both men clearly describe how their caregivers have failed them and their siblings, as well as thousands of children living in Poverty, aka Child Abuse & Neglect because their mothers irresponsibly introduced them to a life of hardship and struggle.

Recently I learned of YouTube broadcaster David Carroll, a prolific video producer and speaker who states he has been studying “the black man” for more than twenty years.

https://www.youtube.com/user/5723davidmichael

While I find myself agreeing with many of Mr. Carroll’s observations and conclusions, I also believe his decision to engage in demeaning “name-calling” weakens his messages and position as an educator.

In fact, David Carroll’s juvenile name-calling mirrors the behavior of many of those he chooses to criticize, giving his video productions a similar feel to many rap performances I’ve read in which rap performers constantly offer demeaning put-downs, characterizing their neighbors in demeaning terms, often using words that portray their male and female community members as “bitches” or less than human.

Unfortunately I did not save one eye-opening production David offered, and I have no desire to rummage through the dozens of vids he uploaded to Net.

In this video David Carroll blames SINGLE moms for causing their boys to develop into teens and men who embrace the nonsensical drama some or many black adult males have adopted into their lives. If you are not familiar with their drama, read their rap lyrics.

This David Carroll observation made perfect sense to me in that I have witnessed black teen and adult males acting much like their mothers who refer to other females as bitches and whores, or as people less than human, not deserving of respect, compassion or empathy.

Sadly many children develop into adolescents who had a ‘Yin’ in their lives, but were not exposed to a ‘Yang’.

red-dotUnlike many living in the community, I was fortunate in that I could request a transfer to a more friendly, less depressed, stress filled community, which I did.

Initially I intended to spend my entire career serving the same community. I preferred interacting and dealing with my fellow citizens, I wanted to be a cop preventing and investigating crimes, not a boss telling cops how to act, often held partially responsible when subordinates act out of line. I never participated in promotional exams, I liked public service oriented police work.

Spending so much time in the community, I viewed it as my second home. For my own safety and to better serve the community I felt becoming very familiar with people in the community’s neighborhoods, learning the back alleys and abandon building drug, stick-up kid’s hangouts, developing contacts and informants, gaining a rep as a fair cop, was the career plan best suited to me.

Sadly, the levels of child abuse and violence I witnessed on a daily basis slowly, insidiously took an emotional toll on me. I worked with guys who spent thirty years serving this community, they didn’t bat an eye, often laughing or joking about the aftermath or actual violence they witnessed. I’m told joking about constantly being exposed to horrendous events is a way some people cope with those events. Though I cannot recall any cops laughing or joking when a child/kid was the victim of a crime(s).

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/09/07/causes-for-police-fear-brutality/

Something cops do not laugh about is witnessing the body of a murdered fifteen-year-old child rolled into a old carpet and disposed of in an abandon lot after she sold drugs for her dealer, became hooked, ripped-off her dealer and paid the ultimate price for stealing from her dealer.

I was not assigned to investigate this case, though I recall the close proximity of the dead child’s body to the Marcy Houses where Shawn Jay Z Carter proudly raps about profiting from causing pain to people.

For me, yeah, some human events were amusing but the majority were saddening, maddening and/or sickening.

I thought I had a thick skin but this community proved me wrong as I could no longer watch large numbers of depressed people harming each other, especially the innocent little kids that many in the community talk about loving, but do little in the way of actually showing their love or protecting children from harm.

Sadly, my civilian co-workers, most all competent moms living in the community, as well as the majority of loving, caring parents raising kids in this community, could not request a transfer to a safer, more stable environment to raise and nurture their children in.

red-dotGetting back to Dr. DeGruy comments about violence and healing. Listening to the words Dr. DeGruy shared I did not hear any references to how ‘Cognitive Dissonance‘ affects children in TODAY’S struggling communities.

I did not hear any words about how we heal people coping with ‘Cognitive Dissonance‘ caused by their caretakers and “The Street” life prevalent in many struggling American communities.

What I did hear is Dr. DeGruy offering a historical lesson that opened my eyes to matters and events I was ignorant to.

Though I did not hear Dr. DeGruy offering solutions to quelling violence or healing those damaged through no fault of their own.

Perhaps in future writings and speaking engagements Dr. DeGruy will relate how “Cognitive Dissonance” negatively impacts developing children Like Kendrick and Tupac? Children who sustain long-lasting emotional damage caused by depressed and/or immature people who irresponsibly build families before they have acquired the skills and means to provide for their large or small families.

red-dotEarly in my police career when I was assigned to a Brooklyn community a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience “culture shock.” When I asked what is meant by “culture shock,” I was told, “You’ll find out.”

I did find out what “culture shock” is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by a “culture of child abuse/neglect” that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the “Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, gives a compelling overview of the role that exposure to childhood trauma plays in the lives of troubled and chronically ill Americans.

After watching Dr. Ross’ presentation one of the questions all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, “What real substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent Child Abuse and Neglect that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?”

At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hitman 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.

Is Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation’s children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness – instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

Victims of Child Abuse

This video depicts horrific examples of men who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect, conditioning a young teen to embrace ‘The Street’ culture Baltimore Mom of The Year failed to protect her teen son from…not to mention representing the fear peaceful people living and WORKING in the community experience knowing depressed, angry, unpredictable teens and young adults need to vent their angers and frustrations for being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsible, “living wild” single moms and/or dads.

A little girl, catching a cool breeze from an air conditioning unit in the yard, was blindsided by another child about her same age, who had evidently had some practice with fighting fierce. The small victim wasn’t alone, as there were plenty of nearby witnesses, who could have protected her but didn’t because they were too busy recording the brutal beat down and encouraging it. | Written By Amanda Shea

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”
