Would a responsible, caring, loving mom concerned and focused on the emotional well being of her child(ren), stand there holding her toddler while witnessing this act of human madness and violence?
Or would a emotionally disturbed mom raised and slowly conditioned to embrace a GENERATIONAL CYCLE of Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment that OPPRESSES & UNJUSTLY DEPRIVES American children like Tupac, Kendrick Lamar, Freddie Gray, Michael Singleton, Azealia Banks, Shawn Carter, Dwayne Carter, Kimberly Denise Jones, Curtis Jackson III, Gloria Darden and untold numbers of AMERICAN children from experiencing a SAFE, fairly or wonderfully happy “Average Joe and Josie” American kid childhood, stand there subjecting their child to experiencing Childhood Trauma?
Sadly, beginning at a young age a significant population of American children are CONDITIONED to accept and/or embrace what the late American recording artist and Childhood Trauma victim Tupac Shakur describes as “Thug Life”, an acronym for
“The Hate U Give Little Infants Fvcks Everyone”.
“We don’t need no more rappers, we don’t need no more basketball players, no more football players. We need more thinkers. We need more scientists. We need more managers. We need more mathematicians. We need more teachers.”
**”We need more people who care; you know what I’m saying? We need more women, mothers, fathers, we need more of that**, we don’t need any more entertainers.” ~Tupac Shakur
Tupac was well aware that not only are American kids being UNJUSTLY OPPRESSED 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 reasonably well adjusted kids maturing into responsible teens and adults who care about the future of OUR Nation.
It is time to end “America’s War on Poverty,” correctly renaming our Nation’s expanding social disorder and # ONE MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS known as CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, to
*”America’s War on Childhood Abuse, Neglect & Maltreatment”*
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.
