There are many things that we never address in the black community and we act like these things simply don’t exist. But we know good and damn well they do. We have never paid a lot of attention to mental illness in the black community. It is one of the many things that gets swept under the table because we don’t want to deal with it and would rather act like it doesn’t exist. This is repulsive at best. It is also another reason I have an issue with the black church. Someone will email me now and say “My Church deals with it” That’s STILL not acceptable and it’s not enough this is a NATIONAL issue. I would be hard pressed but thrilled to find one major church that has ever dealt with the issue either. This video is most unfortunate and it is rumored that the actress is prostituting. Her mother, famous author BeBe Moore Campbell who died a couple of years ago constantly discussed mental illness in her family but she didn’t reveal who she was talking about and was often elusive, now it is evident. When BeBe died it was stated she had 2 grand children. Maia had an older brother but in this video she says she is looking for her daughter. She was once such a beautiful sister and she is screaming out for help. Sources say she is schizophrenic and she refuses to take her medicine. These people are not able to cope and live everyday life on their own and they need help. This sh… really bothers me.
