While the MSM keeps pounding in your head about R. Kelly this and R. Kelly that, one thing that hasn’t been discussed is the case of legalized child trafficking.
Let me repeat this: there were cases of child trafficking in America from 2007-2017 that were legalized where people got child brides and didn’t see a day in jail let alone court. This time period covers three different administrations of both parties and the fact that no one did anything is sick.
I’ve heard of horrific stories involving similar cases where people did get arrested and I’ve seen the documentary At the End of Slavery, but I didn’t realize how many people have been getting away with it. You have situations where tons of wealthy individuals get underage spouses from underdeveloped nations that got green cards, passports, and other forms of legal documentation. This grieves me so much how certain pedophiles fly under the radar while the MSM wants R. Kelly to be the face of that nasty form of sexual deviance as if he invented it.
For the record, he should be punished if he’s guilty. If people bash him, then people need to bash others like Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, Rob Lowe, Kevin Spacey, and many more I can name at the moment.
Back on topic though, let me get this straight. You have people in jail right now for doing things like having an ounce of weed, mail tampering, or stealing some pizza, yet there are people marrying minors and sexually abusing them and they don’t have charges pressed on them? What kind of sense does that make?
Where’s #MeToo? Where’s #TimesUp? Oh, wait. I just hear crickets. Makes me wonder if those same people who rally against celebrities of a certain complexion secretly support this kind of behavior. Freaking hypocrites.
I hope this comes to a stop and I wanted to raise awareness about this issue.
P. S. If you’re ready to lambaste those aforementioned POC celebrities, then all I have to say is #FirstThem. That is all.

Curtis, thank you for that post. Every day I read about R. Kelly yet not much about Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, or Jeffrey Epstein or the many white men who made millions of dollars trafficking children. Epstein was one of them. He supplied the minors for his orgies that included two potus.

No problem, Angela. I’ve definitely heard about those stories and I’m still hearing some more news in and out of that field that’s been buried because of this hysteria. There were similar situations and mass shootings that have happened since then, but they haven’t gotten as much coverage because of the R. Kelly documentary and other things. Where are the documentaries about Weinstien, Allen, Epstein, and the countless others who have been accused and/or found dead to rights doing similar crimes? Sure, there was that one doc a while ago with the Roman Polanski case, but that was a one-off though.
