Surviving R Kelly | A Survivor's Remorse

In Highschool in the late 90's to the 2000's R Kelly's music ruled the airways and tv screens -- he even dubbed himself  "The Pied Piper of R&B". R Kelly also had a dark side where he seemed to have a preference for young girls -- when he married 15-year-old Aaliyah, we all knew for sure something was wrong!

I have so many thoughts after watching the "Surviving R Kelly" series on Lifetime this that I've decided to come here and share a side of myself that has been hidden for years that I go back and forth with each year. R Kelly was a victim of child sexual abuse from the age of 7-14 -- the age of his victims are from 14 and one as young as 13. They say you remain the age it happens to you throughout your lifetime if you don't get help and let's just say I'm a 13-year-old girl living in a 32-year-old woman's body -- thing is, unlike R. Kelly I got help and I have not been kidnapping people and starting cults to avenge those who hurt me in the past like he has. There is a part of me that feels like R Kelly has been chosen as the sacrificial lamb of the Black Community in light of all the powerful white men who are being exposed -- really think about it from that perspective. There is also that other part where R Kelly is a perverted sick, sick man with a lot of money that could have gotten help if he wanted!

He is a great artiste with great songs to date and will probably continue to be a great artiste, but he will also always be a sick man. Think of all those poor girls and how much therapy they have gotten just to be a normal functioning citizen while he has been out there carrying on with his mess and madness. 

Since allegations of his perverted ways came to light, myself and others have not been listening to his music and I believe we in the Black Community should take a stance and not listen or stream his music in any way. We need to let go of this foolishness that "it happens to almost every black girl, so we should shut up and move on" and truly expose these perverts for all to know of their devilish ways.

We have a small favor to ask. People are reading the Haute Lifestyle than ever since our recent placement in the South Florida Blogger Awards but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. We do not have investors and everything Blog related is funded out of pocket– we want to keep our journalism as fun and open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure.
