Over the course of a few days I watched a conversation revolve around a video(still circulating after a year) of a black child having a melt down in a barber shop. Most of the adults that commented on the post suggested that the child(no older than 5) needed to be beat, whooped, and a number of other things, but no one said that the child needed love, understanding, reassurance or time.
I have for some time been of the mind that black parenting is the biggest contributor to the failed state of urban black America. While there may have been some successes among certain groups of young people in various parts of the country, the truth remains, that too many consistently dominate the prison system, have high rates of single parent homes, and domestic violence issues.
Today we have more activists that will rally around combating racism and police brutality, but will not speak up for black youth suffering in toxic households.
In the link below we have one such example of how the very group of persons who give life to every black man that has ever lived, continues to produce products for white supremacy…..Kevin McCall opens up to Iyanla about the beating he received as a child.
In a Second video clip the mother speaks as if she isn’t sorry and that her religious awakening had changed her, but unfortunately she already taught her son(Along with his father) violence.
Which begs the question black America, Why do you think so little of black children’s humanity?
Black women in particular are the primary caregivers to almost all black children in America, and are tasked with providing nurturing, love and time commitment to the lives they choose to bring into this world, in return we these same black men abuse black women and sometime express disdain for some black women, and we are to believe that it comes from an external source. If you beat black boys, tell them to shut up, and sit down, and to not ask questions you are training them to be products for white supremacy. When you have children that you pass off to other people to spend most of the day with, not bonding with them, you are producing products for white supremacy.
For those that say they turned out fine, and validated their need to be beaten as children, you too, are a product of white supremacy.
