Like a lot of people, I wasn’t happy to read the ‘alleged’ news story about R.Kelly ‘keeping young women in a sex cult’. When one set of parents appeared on tv saying they want their daughter back, this really made my stomach turn. But I have to ask, What about the parents and those around these young women? Why weren’t they protected and supported by those close to them? What mindset are we encouraging our young women to have?
Why in these modern times do some young black women believe the only way to succeed is to ‘give themselves’ to older rich men?”
It scares me that after all the problems of the past and the barriers we black people have to overcome, this is still happening.
