Honestly Speaking discusses being beaten over food

Michele, aka “Honestly Speaking” weighs in on a case in Missouri where a kid was stabbed by his own mother for taking more pork chops than the woman thought he should have.

The incident reminded her of a similar situation from her own childhood, when she briefly lived with her crack-addicted mother.

The abuse discussed is far too prevalent in the black community, and it provides insight as to why these children grow up dysfunctional and angry.

Michele’s story is about a  little girl who made herself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. For most people, there would be no more of a story her. But when your mother is a drug-addicted child-abuser, a peanut butter sandwich is a hot button for a beating.

What Michele didn’t know is there were rules for food in her home. Her mother didn’t tell her the rules, but that didn’t matter. You don’t eat the Italian bread.

Michele made her peanut butter and jelly sandwich with her crackhead mother’s favorite bread, and she was beaten to within an inch of her life.
