#TheLargerIssue #Fatherlessness #ChildNeglectMaltreatment #MentalHealth #Solutions Is Systemic Child Abuse Impeding Black Americans From Achieving Equality & Experiencing Success? Respectfully, I choose to look at OUR big picture by recognizing during the on-going evolution of our imperfect, often self-destructive human species, significant numbers of peaceful humans of all backgrounds have greatly suffered as a result of our specie's ignorant human beliefs. I am referring to our innate human ignorance, greed and dysfunction, as well as human ignorance largely based on beliefs in supernatural or immortal gods. This is my take on American societal/human evolution. During our Nation's 1960s civil rights era, flawed social assistance programs designed to help Americans unjustifiably harmed by multiple generations of legal racism and human oppression, sadly, aided in seriously impairing the Quality of Life for many black or American citizens of African descent by allowing understandably depressed, emotionally traumatized black or American girls and women of African descent dealing with the emotional scars of racism, to SELFISHLY, as well as irresponsibly build #FATHERLESS families dependent on Uncle Sam and government handouts while passing some of their emotional illness onto their children. 'Emotionally ill American Mom Sharing Her illness With Her Children and Police' Thus begins the Cycle of Child Abuse and Emotional Maltreatment vividly described in American music art composed by the late Christopher 'Biggie Smalls" Wallace (born 1972), the late Tupac Shakur (born 1971), as well as Mr. "My Brother's Keeper" Obama White House guests Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter (born 1969) and Kendrick Lamar (born 1987), to name a few urban-TRUTH-tellers affected by America's black or African American *CHILD CARE* HEALTH CRISIS evolving from America's ignorant, once legal Culture of Racism. Christopher, Tupac and Kendrick all speak in public about experiencing depression and suicidal thoughts, (*May 18, 2015 - Rise in Suic!de by Black Children Surprises Researchers - The New York Times*) while Shawn speaks about he and his crew/posse/gang engaging in SUICIDAL/HOMICIDAL 'people and community harming behaviors' that seriously impaired the Quality of Life for his peaceful Brooklyn neighbors. Many I met in 80s and 90s during the near-twelve years I was an over-worked uniform cop, robbery and death investigator serving YOUNG Shawn and Christopher's Brooklyn, NY neighborhoods. MY BROOKLYN, NY ROOKIE COP IGNORANCE "Biggie Smalls Chillin With Friends 1991 Bed Sty, Brooklyn" Frankly, had I NOT become a Brooklyn, NY cop, today, like most Americans, I would have no clue why for more than thirty years large numbers of American urban story-TRUTH-tellers and music recording artists compose music HATEFULLY denigrating black or American girls and women as less than human b*tches and 'HOES or THOTS' undeserving of being treated with basic human respect. If I had not become a Brooklyn cop assigned to serve an American community where on a daily basis I spoke with traumatized fellow citizens sharing their FEAR, emotional stress, as well as expressing GENUINE concerns for their family, friends, neighbors or co-workers SAFETY, as they told me about the number of GUNSHOTS they witnessed or heard echoing through their community's residential neighborhood... ...I would NO CLUE that untold numbers of fellow citizens and their children, THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, regularly deal with stressful, traumatizing, life threatening encounters or situations. In this thread, that may or may not become the target of trolls choosing to address issues not related to SYSTEMIC Child Abuse, I will share testimonial evidence offered by fellow citizens affected and harmed by our NATION'S T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E. CHILD CARE Public Health Crisis. To be clear, I understand dysfunctional, apathetic, incompetent, and/or criminal parenting touches the lives of kids residing in EVERY single American community. HOWEVER, I cannot ignore the FACT that for more than thirty years significant numbers of American recording artists, as well as American urban story-TRUTH-tellers raised, nurtured and socialized by American teen girls and women of African descent have been composing music art HATEFULLY demeaning and denigrating females, aka, the maternal half of our Nation's population. Something is DEFINITELY AMISS when for decades, from coast to coast, significant numbers of American urban story-TRUTH-tellers, including Mr. Barack “My Brother’s Keeper” Obama & Mrs. Michelle "Girl Power" Obama's friends and WH guests, are composing music HATEFULLY characterizing and demeaning moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters, aunts and nieces as less than human *itches and/or "hoes" unworthy of respect. The testimonial evidence I share begins with recognizing the late 'Childhood Trauma' (#ACEs) victim Tupac Shakur's T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect, Abandonment & Maltreatment *AWARENESS-PREVENTION* concept. A Child Abuse warning applying to American and foreign born citizens of ALL backgrounds: T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E. - "The HATE U Give Little Infants Fvvks *EVERYONE"* ~Tupac Shakur (born 1971) “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, American urban story-TRUTH-teller "TUPAC EXPLAINS HIS 'T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.' CHILD ABUSE *AWARENESS-PREVENTION* CONCEPT" Shades of Kendrick Lamar & Tupac Shakur - Witnessing A Severely Depressed Teen Reveal He Is A Victim of Child Abuse & Neglect In case there is any confusion, I write about and share evidence of America’s MUCH IGNORED, oppressive, potentially life scarring black or African American *PARENTAL CHILD CARE* HEALTH CRISIS that I, as well as a growing number of my reasonably responsible, caring, concerned American and foreign born neighbors believe is impeding our American neighbors of African descent from experiencing the equality and respect all peaceful, reasonably responsible Americans are entitled to enjoy.
