I Was Labeled A “Fast” Girl, Then My Uncle Started Molesting Me At 10 Years Old

Madame Noire - 01-15


Like most of you, I watched the “Surviving R Kelly” documentary with my mouth wide open, my blood pressure up, and tears in my eyes. I have known that the Pied Piper of R&B was a creep for years but to hear all of the different accounts of abuse he put women through and to hear him say with pride, “I am handcuffed by my destiny, it’s too late, they should have did this sh-t 30 years ago” really sent me over the edge. More than anything, I am tormented by the silence that protects and permits rape culture in the African-American community and makes our girls prey.
