Mary Mitchell of th Chicago Sun-Times is continuing her editorials on troubled R. Kelly. She writes, “Instead of being publicly condemned for violating young girls, Kelly was embraced as a wronged brother; instead of being held accountable by community leaders for shaming his community, he was propped up by those leaders; instead of being shunned by his fans, he was celebrated as a pop idol. The way Kelly has been treated after the allegations of sexual misconduct says a lot about what we value in this society. Unfortunately, it isn’t young black girls.” Suntimes.com has since removed the article.
