Link – Breaking the Silence on Child Sexual Abuse

I don’t know about the African-American community, and whether there are aspects of it that make talking about sexual abuse more difficult but I will always hold that no community is immune to it.

“Without question, sexual abuse is a taboo topic of the masses. It causes deep-rooted mental and emotional anguish across all sectors of the population. While predatory sexual behavior knows no race, class, economic status, religion, or gender, the cultural conditioning that occurs within the African-American community creates the perfect breeding ground for intrafamilial sexual abuse.”
