We Must take a Stand against Incest & Pedophilia in the Afrikan world

What stand will we take against pedophiles who wreck havoc, emotional misery and terror in our global Afrikan communities? How will we deal with the internal enemies among us who have become so sick, demented and psychopathically deranged, beyond repair? Why do we feel that we have to wait on the courts, lawyers and the “judicial system” to exact retribution and true justice on these demonic citizens of our Afrikan communities? Is that not Our job to establish how these demons will receive their punishment? When will we decide that Our children are worthy of Our full & complete protection?

Will it be too late to truly heal and help them when we make up Our minds? Where are the warriors, elders, devoted mothers and fathers in Our communities who will sacrifice their freedom, energy and time to establish our Own methods of punishment for these crimes against Our children? It is Time for Us to realize that Any Race of People that cannot Protect, Nurture and Provide Security for its’ Children are not even fit to call themselves true hueman citizens of this world. A true hueman ensures it’s survival, security and cultural continuity by protecting oneself and those persons who are under their care (children and elderly).

Those members of society who cannot fulfill this duty are in fact almost lower than animals. Even animals in the wild (lions, bears, chickens, kwk) know how to protect their children and will do so even if it costs them their lives. Animal scientists have attested to the fact that these mothers in the wild will go on the attack if any stranger or another animal even tries to get near their cubs. There is only a certain distance you can get to before your life is in very serious danger.

But We, as Black mothers and fathers of the world, will allow Any stranger with a “certificate of education” & capitalist interest, to care for Our children and see no problem with that method of reasoning? I have seen Black parents pass their young children over to “certified professionals” who they have NO established personal relationship with whatsoever.

They do not know the values of these caretakers or their true commitment to meeting the specific needs of Afrikan children. All they require is “legal certification” stating that the professional caretaker(s) have X amount of experience “working with children” and that is enough for most of us to hand our children over to strangers we have never even met before.

Most Black people will approve of leaving their children with these complete strangers for the majority of their day, and sometimes their childhood. When you critically analyze this situation, it becomes evident something is deeply wrong with huemankind. If animals in the wild protect, nurture and care for their children more effectively than we do what does that say about Us? What are you willing to do, Afrikan man and woman, to protect Our children? What is your plan of action??

Please read the below article on the Rise of Pedophilia in Jamaica (it also pertains to the diaspora in general as i have heard similar stories before here in North America), but please be Advised that the content is very graphic and can be disturbing to those of Us who are parents. I myself had to pause a few times as i read it. This article almost brought me to tears. I am sharing it here today because i need Us to recognize and realize the enormous trauma & brutality that Our children are facing today in the Afrikan world.

We, as a people, have collectively chosen to ignore the psychopathic members of our Own community, who are twisted, sick and demented (even beyond Our imagination) but who get a “pass” just because they “look” like Us. We Must battle the Enemy within!!!

Be very careful who you entrust to care for Your children! Not every blood relative is a true & loving family member & not every certified childcare “professional” sincerely “cares” for Your child! Trust Must Be Earned not given automatically! BE Wise & Prudent Afrikan people!

Pedophilia and Incest in Jamaica

Children as young as four years old have been treated for gonorrhoea, syphilis, herpes and HIV at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Jamaica, the Caribbean, after being raped by close family members, including their fathers.

So overwhelming is the number of cases seen at the hospital yearly that one doctor is speaking out in the hope that more will be done by both individuals and communities to protect the nation’s children, many of whom endure months and years of abuse before they are eventually rescued.

Dr Sandra A. Knight, a general practitioner who has worked with the paediatric hospital in Kingston for the past 11 years, said more of these young patients are being brought in for sexually transmitted infections.

“The hospital sees several alleged sexual assault cases each year with the victims being anywhere from babies to 12 years old,” she told the Jamaica Observer.

Many of these children are usually not taken to the hospital until they start to experience symptoms associated with the vagina, penis or anus.

Dr Knight said she treats an average of eight such cases each year while some of her colleagues see up to 13 children annually at the hospital.

Recalling some of the most disturbing cases she has dealt with during her tenure at the hospital, Dr Knight said they continue to have a long-lasting impact on her, personally.

One which still traumatises her to this day is the case of a nine-year-old boy who was buggered by the pastor his mother left him with while she went to work.

Although the boy became withdrawn and lost his appetite, the buggery was not discovered until his teacher complained that he was defecating on himself while at school.

Dr Knight said when the mother took him to the hospital his penis was swollen and scarred and his anus torn.

“You could literally look up the child’s anus to the rectum,” Dr Knight said.

The child later revealed that the pastor had been raping him for some time and would give him $20 each time he had sex with him.

Another case she will never forget was that of an 18-month-old boy who died after being buggered by an uncle, two years ago.

“I saw that baby two days before he died,” a distraught Dr Knight said.

She recalled the day the near lifeless baby was brought to the hospital by his uncle and a pregnant girlfriend to be treated for a cold.

As she attempted to resuscitate the unconscious baby, she noticed his stomach was growing at an alarming pace.

“I was so busy resuscitating him that I didn’t immediately think of turning the child over and when I turned him over the anus was destroyed,” she said. “The uncle had raped the baby and when the penis went into the anus it tore off the colon (bowel) and the faeces started to run into the abdominal cavity,” she explained, adding that the baby had no chance of living.

In yet another case, Dr Knight said she treated a little girl who was infected with HIV, gonorrhoea, syphilis and herpes by an uncle who was in and out of prison.

It was, however, the last two patients that Dr Knight treated a week ago that pushed her to make public the plight of these children.

In these cases, a four and a six-year-old were infected with gonorrhoea which had began to seriously ravish their young bodies by the time they were diagnosed.

“What traumatised me about the situation is when I look at the vagina of these little girls (and pardon the graphicness of what I am saying) the hymen is ripped apart, they have sores, the older child we had to evaporate the room when we were finished because pus was coming from her vagina,” she said.

From the symptoms, Dr Knight said it would appear the girls would have been infected for weeks, however the younger one was only taken to the hospital after her mother noticed she was scratching her vagina while the older child had a smelly discharge.

In both cases, Dr Knight said the children refused to say who the perpetrators were, although the younger one reported that her father was sleeping in her bed, while the mother told the police that he should have been sleeping on the floor. That father has since been arrested. However, there is still no arrest made in the case of the six-year-old.

During the medical examination of these young rape victims a swab (the size of a cotton bud) is used to take a sample from the vagina and this procedure, Dr Knight said, often causes children to scream out in pain.

“And I say to myself, if this swab is so painful for them,” [I can’t imagine] “what the experience must have been like for these children,” she said.

Once these children are found to have been sexually abused they are admitted at the hospital and are only discharged when a social worker gives the go ahead.

Knight said the doctors do not examine any child without an officer being present from the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA).

“Whenever a child comes in, CISOCA is called, and one officer will interview the family while another will remain with the doctor while the child is being examined,” she explained.

She said that in most cases the children are taken to the hospital by the mothers who sometimes have been aware that these children are being molested but feel powerless to act.

In a lot of the cases, Dr Knight, said these mothers were themselves raped as children.

“Most of the mothers who I interviewed know the children are being abused, but they are economically and physically disadvantaged because the man is going to beat them, and some even send out children for men to have sex with them,” she said.

One mother, Dr Knight said, admitted to her that she had a similar experience as a child and it did not affect her. “So the mentality is the child is going to be all right too,” said the doctor.

There is, however, the other end of the spectrum where there are distraught mothers who will even blame themselves for not having figured out what was going on.

Head of CISOCA, Superintendent Gladys Brown-Campbell, said she had no readily available statistics to indicate whether there has been an increase in the number of carnal abuse cases involving children, but said a lot of the offences, which were committed some time ago, are now being reported.

The multi-agency approach at CISOCA, which sees all the relevant State agencies such as the Child Development Agency and Office of the Children’s Registry operating under one roof, is said to make it easier for these young victims.

“Everyone is on board and so the child does not have to tell the story twice,” Brown-Campbell said.

According to Brown-Campbell, a lot of these children are being abused by relatives and close family friends.

“So be careful who you entrust your children to,” she warned, adding that this is often the reason why the sexual abuse is not discovered earlier.

While most of the cases she has dealt with involve persons from the lower socio-economic strata of society, Dr Knight suggested that this was so only because they are the persons who mostly access the public health system.

She also said that a lot of these children will not readily reveal the identity of the perpetrator as they find it difficult to consolidate the two ideas that the person who is supposed to love and protect them is the one hurting them.

“We had a three-year-old who it took hours for her to talk, and then she finally said “mi father say me nuffi talk,” Dr Knight said.

She explained that this is usually a confusing place for a child to be, as they often do not know what they are feeling at that time.

“When these little children grow up and realise that what happened was not supposed to happen, then they start to feel ashamed and this affects their self-esteem and values and they then engage in voluntary sex at a young age,” she said.

While the majority of rapes are committed by adults, there are those occasions when the sexual act is done by an older child.

Dr Knight cited a case that came to her attention only last week in which a mother brought in her 11-year-old son for treatment because he was beaten by a neighbour.

“I asked the mother why the neighbour beat the little boy and the boy said ….(name omitted) say me rape him son dem, but me neva rape dem, is go me go inna di room and see dem a f… and me join in,” Dr Knight said, adding that she was taken aback by how casually he expressed himself.

So traumatic are these and several other cases she has dealt with, that Dr Knight said it has begun to impact her and some of her colleagues personally, especially after the birth of her now six year-old daughter.

“It is difficult to see a four-year-old suffering like this, and so I get obsessive about who my daughter is staying with,” she said, adding that no one, regardless of social status, is safe from this demon.

The human sexual centre, she explained, is in the most primitive part of the brain and this is the area which is impacted least by what is called common sense and is instead controlled more by reflexes and urges.

According Dr Knight, it all comes down to the sexual indiscipline and the inability to control one’s urges.

Dr Knight said another of the driving forces which has led her to speak out about this scourge affecting society, is the many sexual dysfunctions among adults which can be traced back to their childhood

“A physician who is being divorced confided in me that he was sexually abused as a child and was having difficulty maintaining a relationship with a woman as he was sexually abused by a woman,” she said, explaining further that having grown up in a poor family he was sent to board at a lady’s house during his high school years and the lady took sex for rent.

As for the wheels of justice, Dr Knight is not convinced they are turning as fast as they should, as of all the cases she has treated over the years, she has only been called three times to be a witness in court, which could suggest that a lot of them do not get resolved.

She feels helpless at not having any one solution to the problem. However, she is hoping that by speaking out public awareness will be raised and responsible adults will be prompted to take action.

“My solutions are, one, to make society aware of the fact that they need to protect their children, and two, if you are a perpetrator you will be punished and lastly, to let everyone know that it is wrong to do this,” she said.

As for Jamaica having a sex offenders registry to alert communities to the identity of sex offenders, Knight does not believe this would work as smoothly in Jamaica as in the United States, because Jamaicans may take matters into their own hands because of the vigilante culture.

  1. The problem facing the black/of black origin diaspora is sexual indiscipline amongst our men AND women. The amount of co-dependancy, even with those of us in “first world” countries is appalling. Speaking up about how sexually incontinent a lot of us are is greeted with “when we were in Africa we could have as many wives as we wanted” and that is amongst some of the intelligent ones. I dodged a bullet last year. It turns out that my ex is a sexual predator and his own daughters were not off limits. I had to call the social services on his ass. What makes me mad is that the children’s mother (in Jamaica – I’m Black British in Britain) was seemingly abused financially and emotionally by this man and used the method of dividing and conquering (amongst his two daughters) so that even though he violated them both, because he practised the “scapegoat child”, “golden child” syndrome on them, one would not back up the other when one was brave enough to report him to the authorities. Black people need to know that sexual predators are not all weird looking, sitting in greasy armchairs in darkened rooms waiting for prey. Most of the times they MAKE opportunities to commit abuse. The phrase “hidden in plain sight” pertains to them, as does “shameless”.
    Whilst so many of us Africans/African descent people are so up to scratch on spirituality, Bible, Koran and Torah, we need to read some books about psychology. It’s because I noticed inconsistent behaviour and the way my ex otherwise treated his children (as useful pawns to enable him to get what he needed to get) that a fog of realisation descended upon me. That and other in and of themselves incidents started to make “sense”.
    My ex’s children are: One son living with his still separated wife (in Britain) who she has resorted to begging his cousin to beg him on her behalf to see. She is in denial and should know that the best place for this man is AWAY from him. Eldest daughter, because her daddy refused to continue her application for stay in Britain ( because she always confronted his behaviour) had to run away to local social services. She has , as an eighteen year old just had a baby. I hope her hustle works and she gets her stay. Being deported back to Jamaica (my ancestry) will not be good for her. Sexual abuse is everywhere, but Jamaica is so backward and shameless her sexual excesses that that combined with the religious hypocrisy and certainty that her extended family knows that her father is “dodgy” would ( even though she most certainly loves them) would set her future backwards, and trust me, this young lady is mature beyond her years. His youngest daughter, early teens , I have heard that she has been sent to live with his mother in Antigua. Good. I would not have rested until she was prized away from him and his present girlfriend (who has a young child and is taking a risk staying with him, despite the fact that she knows what he has been accused off. I would have loved to hear the way he bluffed his way out of that).
    Sexual predators are often charming. But I’m a person who looks for actions to back up words. It was me noticing a lack of action behind his words (concerning our domestic life) that had me really LOOKING at him. I noticed too much, but I would have rested easy if I did not report my suspicions ( which were confirmed by his eldest daughter, unprompted) to the appropriate authorities. This problem will get worse before it gets better. Too many black women are under the thrall of materialism or have had rubbish childhoods ourselves which makes us strong about the wrong things and too self interested. How are those kinds of women ( not to say men shouldn’t notice, and they often do) going to step up to the plate in our “don’t snitch” “how do you know it’s true?’ ” I hate the police” culture?
