The real truth as to why i started doing this early 5th grade, it was a cloaking device for me. During the summer of my 5th grade year I was around more family. Some that names will be left alone I was around more. I was sexually harassed, raped, abused, I even got accustomed to it because being at that age you don’t know what is what. I was a gullible curious kid that didn’t know what the real world was. I had a mindset that my hair was something that I can control. My hair was what I can make and create and be mine. And it gave my confidence. As of recently I wasn’t at my best. Previous History popping up in my head and it sucked mentally “demons”..... because of this virus, I began to truly look at myself in the mirror and see who I truly was even behind closed doors. Long story short I have found peace and internal happiness through this journey god willingly. I forgave everyone even the people that don’t deserve it why? Because it’s dead weight. Time doesn’t wait on anyone so why should I waste my time on it ? Me cutting my hair was more than a cut. My hair was a mask of me hiding the insecurity’s that I felt the world wasn’t ready for. But now better then ever. Out with old. In with the new. I have shed my skin mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Life will always be hard. Gotta play with the cards your dealt with and try and make a winning hand. And if you lose. It’s never a lost. It’s a lesson 🙏🏾. I’m gonna be off this for awhile still growing through this. Just know I love each and everyone one of y’all. Peace love and happiness 💕🙏🏾

Good for him! That took a lot of courage and I hope he continues to grow from this. More brothers need to face their demons head on and come to terms with the childhood traumas that affect they way they treat themselves and others. As a people we need to let go of this toxic mindset of treating our Black boys like they're either emotionless warriors who are only put on this earth to wreak havoc, or hypersexual Mandingos whose main purpose is to make a ton of babies they don't take care of.

Oh my God!!!!!!!! I got through half of his message and couldn't stop crying. The evil shit many people go through is horrible. I'm sure it's very difficult for him to get those images of his past pain out of his mind. God bless this young man and I'll be praying for his continuous healing.

I wish him blessings and healing, on his bravery speaking out, on his childhood trauma. I wish more brothers were this brave. We need to return to the old ways, when we find out the family and friend pedophiles has abused our children, they turn up missing. I send Loving healing to this brave young man.

All Praises To The Most High God for your courage in speaking out about this young King. Childhood rape and any type of sexual abuse alters the soul of a child and can hinder them from reaching their full potential in life.

Seek counsel King ( not from white people...they've done enough damage to our people already)

Seek counsel from true spiritual leaders (not from td jakes, or creflo, or any sunday church pastor because they are devils too )


this video has a Part 1 and a Part 2 ...it was made for the women, BUT it may also help you in your journey King... Peace & Blessings to you! --->

Beautifully stated.
Our black boys need to know that they are loved and protected. We shouldn't want a generation of emotionless, sex crazed, thugged out men wrecking havoc in our communities.
