Confession. I never understood the whys as a Black Community we have decided to treat Bow Wow (Shad Moss) the way we do. But I was never really interested in stopping it either. Today I am. We talk mental health blah blah blah. And this man is really talking about wanting to end his life(apparently since 2010)…because of how we treat him. But I think because he’s black and male we don’t have a lot of sympathy for it. All I know is if he offs himself. I’d really be hurt. Because his anti black moments are nothing compared to people in our community on the daily. And we treat him like pure scum in comparison. He ain’t even out here trying to make it hard to be Black either, he just rich, lost and confused. And now we can add suicidal, because of us.
