    Interesting chart.



    Ironically, the pre-teen brain doesn't really look that much less mature than the 20yr old brain.



    The chart makes it seem like a teen brain is about 70-80% as mature as a 20yr old brain.




    Also, the justice system throws teenagers with "immature brains" in jail all the time.



    This would seem to indicate that immaturity is not always going to be a good enough excuse to absolve teenagers of being held accountable for their actions.

    Kelly got caught on tape having sex with a minor .. My argument has always been

    1. Why the American justice system didn't or hasn't locked him up?

    2. Why hasn't he been physically assaulted by a male guardian or family member to one of these girls? For years?


    That Nigga still walking like nothing




    That said do your research on the Motown years and majority of the female singers coming up in that era, 60s and 70s



    Couple of them were already sexually active from as young as 15 years old mostly through duress ... Getting pregnant at very early ages




    Large scale paedophilia goes on particularly in the Northern part of my country which is predominantly Islamic... Girls not fully physically developed having babies and that fuckin their bodies up



    If you've heard of female genital mutilation... Then you know what goes down

    Blazing, watching a soccer game and listening to this shit... And these lyrics just resonated with this thread.


    Be, B-Boys and girls, listen again
    This is for grown looking girls who's only ten
    The ones who watch videos and do what they see
    As cute as can be, up in the club with fake ID
    Careful, 'fore you meet a man with HIV
    You can host the TV like Oprah Winfrey
    Whatever you decide, be careful, some men be
    Rapists, so act your age, don't pretend to be
    Older than you are, give yourself time to grow
    You thinking he can give you wealth, but so...



    Parents man..

    R Kelly is free because the girl in the tape refused to testify

    Plain and simple. It's not like he didn't go to court. In this instance, the Justice system did what they could do and that was take him to trial

    The people directly involved in this matter are what allowed Kelly to do what he has done for so long. Anyone proven to have substantial first hand knowledge and victims that accepted settlements in his prior cases. People that likely had the most damning evidence that may have put the man behind bars earlier, but instead of justice accepted a check. I say these are the people most at fault outside of Kelly himself.

    Blaming people that may have only had professional relationships or only knew him in passing is irrelevant. Likely just a tactic for generating more hype around the matter as the bigger names often do.

    Now faux feminist may tell you there isn't a racial element at play here. That they don't care if white people did it, make wild claims that black men are mentioning whites to say blacks should get away with it too, and say anything else to deny the discrepancy. Please know that such people are likely enemies of black people anyway.

    If they truly wanted to solve this issue of protecting underage children (not just girls) then pointing out other races committing the crime helps that cause. It shouldn't be that hard to multi-task and spread your outrage fairly. To get half-assed about justice when other races are mentioned makes them just as horrible as the people that did enable R.Kelly.

    The bold is really my point on contention with the niggas who hold the position that Knock does. Like niggas really do forget just how dumb you were as a teen compared to what you know now as an adult, so it's wild as hell to see adults talk about how grown teens are and how much they know as if they somehow had the same ability to judge situations, people, and navigate the world in their late 20's and 30's vs someone who is 14, 15, 16 years old.

    Yeah, because the justice system has this shit figured out. Some of ya'll sure are funny when you want to use the justice system to support your points vs. saying how corrupt and unfair it is.

    Immaturity wont absolve you of crimes. We all know that. A teen shooting their shot at an adult is not a crime. Because the adult is supposed to say no.

    Robbing killing and stealing will get q kid locked up. But if they find the kid qas lead to it by an adult they may get less time. Probably have to show an adult forces them to rob steal or kill

    That's exactly my point.



    It's not always fair, but that doesn't change the fact that there is a criminal justice system that holds teenagers accountable for their actions irregardless of their level of maturity.



    Basically, lack of maturity is not always a legitimate excuse to give teenagers a pass.

    And that criminal justice system has proven to be unfair, unbalanced, and inconsistent when dishing out such accountability so why use that as your point of reference? Using that actually does point more to the fact of teens not being rational, because the research as to punishing teens as if they're adults and how that ultimately fails them is easy to find.

    Simply because it shows that actions have consequences.



    Regardless of how naive, immature, or ignorant someone is.



    Been that way since the beginning of time.



    There are people who are still paying today for decisions/mistakes they made in the past.



    This really shouldn't be such a difficult concept to grasp.



    It's not really about right or wrong..........but cause and effect.



    Basically, how one action leads to another.

    You quoted the right person.

    You see how his daughter noticed how bad it was to talk to older guys.
    What is so hard about grasping that concept.

    She's not obtuse or as y'all say, immature to know whats right.

    I see she made a decision. Nothing adult about saying no and telling her daddy about it.

    Not to continue to use the brother's family but his daughter told him how she was approached, so is the only girl or boy in reality to not know the shit is wrong on both sides??

    She's the only teenager that knows the shit is wrong.

    Chicks know it's wrong, older dudes know it wrong.

    Young dudes know it's wrong, older women do too. They don't care.

    That same justice system established the age of consent saying a teens choice making in regards to sex can be sketchy
