In the song:
How Come, How Long
By: Stevie Wonder...
1) What are the two types of abuse evident in the song?
2) Discuss the meaning of the line "she had a college degree, smart as anyone could be; there was not enough education in her world that could save the life of this little girl..."
I found out that there are foour types of abuse: physical, neglect, Sexual and Emotional
For number one is it physical and sexual?
and does #2 means that she might be smart in book things and other things but not educated in relationships???
1) Because she fell in love with the wrong kind of man, he killed her. No one seemed to notice. He also beat her.
2) As smart as she was, she was not smart enough to see what kind of man he was.
The abuse was certainly physical and that leads to emotional abuse as well.
Correct in the meaning of #2.
